Saskatoon, Saskatchewan
Saskatoon, SK,

Upon delving into a good book, I immediately enter into a relationship with the author, the characters, and the story. Each love affair is unique. I often find myself embedded in the world the author has created.

    My heart rarely beats faster than in the first moment I walk into a bookstore. As I take a couple steps passed the entrance, I stop to look around, breath in, and smile. My senses are heightened, my mind is clear, and I feel at peace.

    My adoration of bridges follows suit. Living in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan has sparked my appreciation for these beautiful pieces of architecture. To me, stepping onto a bridge evokes a sense of freedom. A bridge can symbolize the choice to cross over to a new era, to take on a new adventure, or to strive for a new circumstance.

    Whether it is a book, a movie, a collection of music, et cetera, I aspire to share my take on the pieces of work I encounter. I hope you enjoy what my site has to offer as I'll use it to share reviews and my views.

Would You Embrace Spiritual Integrity?

I have come to know, that when one realigns themselves with the intentions of their soul, they propel themselves to make choices in all areas of their life from a place of spiritual integrity. Decisions are made, aligned action is taken, and life flows.

Would You Embrace Spiritual Integrity?

Casey Balon


This morning I feel vibrant. Knowing that I have given myself permission to post daily content has set me free in a new way. I suppose I have done this before (well, kind of), where I’ve posted daily blogs without editing them in great detail beforehand. And so it will be what it will be.

I feel the nerves in my belly well up in an excited way. I can only assume it is similar to what a speaker experiences before they step on stage in front of a grand audience or even an intimate one (as many do to perform their TED Talks). It doesn’t seem to matter whether one or many read my work; it excites me.

So here’s the thing: I’m now calling those nerves I breathe through “excitement.” I predicted that by renaming these butterflies it would allow me to tap into my flow state even further. I can feel I am in flow. I am clear. I am calm. I am wide awake on this Tuesday morning, but there seems to be a tad bit of negotiation occurring between my heart and my head. My heart yearns to be set free – to take the wheel as I always allow it to… but my mind wants in the game. I suppose they can be coworkers today.

Now that we’ve settled that, we’ll move on to the real issue at hand: let’s write.

Deep breath.

I’ve gone through a freeing and beautiful spiritual practice this morning. By reconnecting to myself and anchoring myself in my faith, I am able to flow through the day, feeling one with All That Is. It’s quite the feeling, you know.

Although life is never “perfect” (There’s no such thing anyways, is there?), I do call it just that. Perhaps life does not appear seamless or “easy”, but it does unfold in a synchronistic way – in a way that is perfect for the moment and for the bigger picture – if we let it.

My perspective is that we are all here to co-create these bountiful, harmonious lives of freedom. When we get to a place where we can allow our souls – our intuition and most inner beings – to lead the way, we experience clarity and certainty in a whole new way.

I have come to know that when one realigns themselves with the intentions of their soul, they propel themselves to make choices in all areas of their life from a place of spiritual integrity. Decisions are made naturally, aligned action is taken, and life flows.

So then it’s simple…right? Well, it certainly can be if one lets it be.

There’s also the pesky, yet quiet, little aspect of healing generational wounds, embracing all that you are and all that those before you were, while freeing yourself from carrying on old patterns set in your childhood or even set by your ancestors.

These are things that might sound intimidating or perhaps farfetched, but the point to it all is really simple: within you lies a beautiful connection to this universe – to your faith or whatever you have named it – and you hold the power to connect to it All. The question really becomes: will you?
