Love & Gratitude

“You have no idea how big of a difference you have made in my life and in the life of my company.”

“I’ve been living in natural magic since the day I synchronistically stumbled across your brilliant work. You have pushed me to grow to my full potential as I work to make a profound difference in the world. I can never find the words to thank you for the brilliance you have created.

The meditations Michael created for my company are utter perfection and I am getting goosebumps thinking about how they are going to transform so many lives. I am just so amazed and impressed by your brilliance. It is so incredible and inspiring and I am forever grateful. Transcendence Theatre would not be a reality without you.”

“What a relief to hear such strong Voices that remember for me, when I have forgotten myself.”

“If I had to encapsulate the gifts that Arielle and Michael have given me into 2 words, I would choose nourishment and inspiration.

Physical Nourishment , in that Arielle gently and intuitively led me by the hand as I tentatively sought to realign with my true appetites and impulses for movement.

Emotional Nourishment, in their guidance to care more deeply for myself and be willing to BE with the emotional energies that are bound to arise when we are living more authentically.

Spiritual Nourishment, in the way that their consistent message speaks to who we really are, not to the ideas about ourselves borne out of our confusion. What a relief to hear such strong Voices that remember for me, when I have forgotten myself.

Not to mention Arielle´s amazing meditations and sounding with the singing bowls! Those will take you Home!

And as for the Inspiration, both Arielle and Michael have long been making their own trek, and so they speak from experience. Michael has such a way of calling us to the challenge of true and deep transformation, hard work indeed, yet apparently it can be done while laughing! He certainly does plenty of that! They are incredibly prolific, creative and generous in their offerings for all of us, as well as goofy or lazy or just plain human, when the moment calls for that also. Good to know that this path is accessible to everyone. Yet sometimes it takes the inspiring Voice of leaders to help us keep moving along.”

“You are a living angel in my heart.”

“I have done two of your guided meditations, 7 color rays and release past burdens by surrendering. They really have had a profound affect on me. I have done countless female or male guided meditations from the very famous to the more subtle ones…..I have never been so resonant to others….as yours. Just want to let you know. Thank you so much the beautiful living Angel Arielle. Blessings from Hong Kong, I love you.”

You are positively changing the world, through one energy being at a time!

Thank you Michael and Arielle,  I feel so much gratitude for the gifts you’ve given me. The meditations have proven powerful, and combined with the course itself, it’s all helped me maintain focus on loving myself, even in a challenging time. Thank you for this tremendous gift.  I love you both.

“I’m inspired and on track again!”

“Thank you again for the time we spent on the phone. The 2 biggest issues in my life — my mission and my love– were overwhelming me, and now it’s just all ok! I’m inspired and on track again! You are the real deal my friend, and it shows that you are living your dharma. You are really really good at what you do. Thank you.”

Jennifer Henry, California, USA


“I have been using Michael and Arielle’s meditations on a daily basis for several years now and have found them to be life changing.”

“My participation in several of the courses have also contributed to my development. Not only am I more relaxed, but because my awareness has increased, so have some of the practical aspects of my life. The playful and happy attitude this young couple displays, also resonates well with me, as my approach to the world is similar. Some of their teachings have also been of great use to my son who has taken on an academic challenge. I am thankful, and highly recommend the courses.”

Beatrice Trezevant, Colorado Springs, USA


“Gifted with boundless grace and infectious enthusiasm and joy”

Michael and Arielle share powerful insights and crystal-clear techniques for gaining new depths of self-knowledge, clarity on one’s innermost landscape of hopes and visions and the courage to take practical daily actions to tackle seemingly insurmountable challenges where necessary to ultimately pursue what they fittingly call: the path of the heart. Namely an authentic and purpose-filled life on track with the highest good for all, in harmony with the ways of compassion and true to personal values rather than inherited and solidified roles, patterns and beliefs. Truly here are super practical everyday tools, food for thought and food for the soul to put the spark back in your life. Instructions: leave no content undigested, dip into time and again like a favorite book of spells. Truly here be magic. The new normal. Truly I am grateful to Michael and Arielle. Aloha and may the wonders continue!

“Since starting at Awakened Academy, and focusing on divine giving and receiving, I have received so many blessings! Here is the latest:”

“I have 14 days left in my 21 days of giving and receiving – and already something that I put on my vision board for the year has come to pass! I put on my vision board that I will own an old Craftsman in 2021. Then the miracle happened….”

“I had looked at a dream home in November when my QuickBooks (for my business) was a mess. It was showing a loss, even though that was incorrect. It was going to take me a ton of work to fix. However, I did call the broker to check in to say I loved the house. We had a nice chat, and he told me that it was still available – I just needed to get things fixed in time!

The first sale financing had failed and then a second offer came through straight away. Darn it – I wasn’t going to get it. No biggee. Then… just when I was nearly done healing my books, I got a text from the listing broker, which said ‘You won’t believe this, but the buyer financing failed again – so do you want this house??’.

I had to rush the final input and send an updated profit & loss to my mortgage broker, which he rushed through. I then added $10,000 to the listing and said, ‘this is all I can do – will it work?’. And they accepted it!!!! The broker said, ‘this house was meant for you. You are the one who is supposed to have it.’

Can you believe that?!? Who says that?!? This kind of stuff is what the CIA calls “weird science and frickin’ magic! I manifested my house!!!!”

Benni Sack, Seattle, WA

“This is a MUST-DO program for anyone”

“Joining the Awakened Academy program was one of the best decisions I have made. Michael and Arielle are both loving, supportive, knowledgeable and passionate about what they do. They have helped me gain my confidence to move forward towards my dreams even when everyone else thinks I’m crazy. This is a MUST-DO program for anyone who is looking to gain inspiration to live an awakened life, take a journey within and connect with your higher self, and show up and make a difference in the world.”

“Your courses enabled me to discover my purpose and learn how to be of service to others.”

“Blessings to you, Michael and Arielle. My heart is full of gratitude for you and your work! Thank you for the priceless gift of your beautiful meditations, videos, courses, and books! Thank you most of all being such beacons of love and light and for sharing your wisdom and gifts with the world!”

“Their energy is so genuine and their audio meditations have cradled me in light and peace many a night as I was lulled into restful sleeps after several years of struggling with insomnia.”

“I can’t express how grateful I am and how fortunate I feel for having fortuitously stumbled upon Michael and Arielle’s work. They have helped me learn to say “no”, take “me time” and to embrace my introversion. Their openness in sharing past pains with a wide-open heart has enabled me to confront & embrace my pains.

After an amazing phone consultation, I was miraculously able to release a debilitating physical condition called brachial radial pruritis that had been plaguing me for some time. Together as Michael and Arielle guided me in releasing my fears …. My condition disappeared! As they say, “as within, so without”!”

“I honestly feel like I have so much support from you and it’s exactly what my soul was searching for.”

I love everything about this program so far! I really love how personal everything is and how much you guys communicate to your students. You really do love us and we can feel it through every email and call.

I honestly feel like I have so much support from you and it’s exactly what my soul was searching for. I love how honest the audio sessions are and how you tell your experiences. It makes me feel connected to you and knows that I too can become the happiest person I know… I feel like I have a family now and people who understand me, the real me. I am able to go to work now, as stressful as it can be and know that I am always being guided by a higher power.

I have wonderful meditations that I can listen to at any moment, which is something I really value.

“Your program blew my mind. Within days I was on my path.”

“You have given freely of yourself, your knowledge and your time. Every single e-­mail I receive these days, including from personal friends, is someone trying to sell something – a product, a service – not one ‘real’ person asking, “how are you? what do you need?” I love it that I see YOU offering what spirit has given you to serve and help others… your genuine care makes my soul happy! It is like a soothing balm that you actually care about others… really care! Thank you!”

“If I am ever feeling disconnected and lose inspiration, I just have to listen to the voice of either Arielle or Michael and I feel immediately reconnected and back on track!!!  Much love and gratitude.”

Anna Rogers

“I just wanted to say thank you so much for your videos, particularly the one on how to eliminate cannabis from your life… It has helped me tremendously, only three days clean from it, but I am already feeling a noticeable change and am ready for the next shift and chapter in the evolution of my being.”

Your gifts are entirely relevant, unique, real and profound. It is what my soul always knew, but could never finds words or ways of expression for.”

Dodee Schmitt, California, USA


“It really is very beautiful and powerful.”

“I’ve been using the 7 rays Chakra meditation and I have found it very powerful!
I noticed on the first listen that I felt surrounded by a bubble of light and safety, I was able to completely relax and allow the meditation to work – I fell into a deep refreshing sleep. On waking I felt increased joy and happiness, and I think some wonderful chakra balancing occurred. Since then I have listened several times and for me each time I have felt a real connection with each colour ray and felt very relaxed and much less tense.
Thank you again for creating it!”

Michelle Brind, United Kingdom

Student of Natural Healing

“Throughout the training I’ve experienced continuous shifts in awareness.  I have the feeling of being in the perfect place at the perfect time.  It has changed my entire state of being.”

“I’m completely grateful for Michael and Arielle.  Before I joined the School of Dharma program, I really didn’t know who I was or understand what my true calling was.  I had no idea what I wanted to do with myself, I had no big goals.  My ability to laugh deeply and enjoy the wonders of life had been buried.  All of that has changed.  Michael’s ability to share his infinite knowledge always arrives at the perfect time and Arielle’s sweetness and compassion add such tenderness to the program.  During my personal struggles there was always wisdom, love and support available to me. “

The Money, Magic, Meaning course is a powerful, exciting and fun process of getting clear about how to spend our precious time in the best way to serve life & be happy.

It helps you become charged by knowing your own values and visions, and by releasing the things that don’t serve you.  You come to know what wants to be expressed through our character and our soul, and why it is worth it to be in this worldly experience!  Another important point of clarity is to learn we don’t have to figure it out just by ourselves. We can ask our divine companion to support us and receive divine guidance (which is very relieving…).

The following personal session with Arielle was a very harmonious, warm-hearted and funny experience where I worked out a strategy for the near future to support me and keep me from falling into the same old routines. Thank you!

I would like to share with the Awakened Academy community, a story about the recent reconciliation with my younger sister. She has gone through very dark moments with her teenage daughter and caused friction between the families, to the point that we completely cut off communication. I joined the Awakened Academy quite a while after this, and I was not in a good place, emotionally. During some of our sacred mentoring calls, I became familiar with karmic accounts and how to deal with them. Thanks to Michael and Arielle, I learned how to deal with my sister’s karmic account. My feelings of resentment shifted to pure love, blessings and good wishes. Almost every time she comes into my mind, I send her good wishes and lots of love. Her relationship with her daughter has improved and she has also forgiven herself and also, me. Thank you for the support and invaluable wisdom which I received on every call.

Best wishes to all and for anyone dealing with karmic accounts – stay faithful, patient and loving.

The bond of family goes way beyond hate. Love always wins.

Vanessa Hernandez, Ontario, Canada
