The Powerful U Experience
A Journey Into Your Perception

Journey Description – Everyone’s life begins the same. We are born into the world naive, impressionable, and constantly trying to define life and the world around us. As time goes on, we create an idea of how we think the world works, forming our own “Neverland” in our mind. At some point, the bubble bursts and we all learn the world is not what we thought it was. For some, this can happen at a very young age if their innocence is ripped away by a traumatic event. Those fortunate enough to have a supportive childhood keep their innocence much longer. At some point, we must all come to grips with the new world which is forced upon us. This is “The Fall” into “The Matrix”. From here, we start to see the differences in our lives. For some this fall can be quick, for others, it can be a long drop, while others may keep falling repeatedly. Where does this “fall” lead? It’s different for everyone and, to add to the confusion, we fall to different levels in the various aspects of our lives. For some it is just a small adjustment and for others it can lead to a “crash” or “rock bottom”. Regardless of where you land, “The Matrix” is where most people become stuck. Some embrace this as their new normal because this existence is just bearable enough to deal with. Others can feel like they have “fallen” into a hole of despair so deep that they could never make it out and give up. Many remain hopeful attempting to climb their way out but fall time and time again. Then, of course, there are the few that somehow manage to climb out and create anew reality for themselves and thrive. Each of us have a different story about this journey but they all have common pieces. We believe that given the knowledge of how to climb, everyone can, if they choose, climb out of “The Matrix” and live in a world of their creation. This is the “The Powerful U Experience”.
