Manifest the Energy of Your Life
Emma Bennett is a writer, artist, and aesthete based in the Pacific Northwest .
The best things in life are offered freely to those who notice. What I have to offer the world is a gift to the ones willing to take the intrepid step into the territory of absolute possibility within. What results is a radiant manifestation of pure Essence, also known as energy, chi, shakti, mana, or vibes in the languages of the world. This is what it means to “Manifest Vibes.”

When I met Marianne Williamson while she was on her 2020 presidential election campaign tour, she said to me, “The higher conscious community has no idea what they are capable of.”
During our times of tremendous change at a tremendous pace, it is more needed than ever for us all to take some time to reflect and redirect so that we can proceed in living our lives with greater confidence and ease.
You have what it takes to co-create culture at large simply by being you and taking the creative reigns over your life. This is the message I have waiting for you during the upcoming Overcoming Digital Anxiety livestream event. Sign up below.
About Emma “Emalani” Bennett (moi)
A funny nickname of mine is Emma Bunny, la petite Lapine, earned from a classmate from a French language class led by a cantankerous octogenarian French nun. This does capture how people tend to see me, a carefree, soft-mannered cheeky rabbit. No one would be immediately able to tell from a first impression that the first thirty years of my life had been like a trek through Mordor, the fictional treacherous volcanic plain of Tolkien’s Middle Earth. Yet, we must speak up about such things otherwise no one would know that such an experience is surely human and more common than the status quo would have us know. My Adverse Childhood Experience (ACE) score is an 8 out of 10. The CDC-Kaiser Permanente Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) Study found that persons with a score of 6 or higher can have up to twenty years cut from their life expectancy and that the trauma can cause long-term mental and physical health problems. For us to uplift humanity, we must encourage people to be raw and real, to be vulnerable in an empowered way, and to acknowledge where they have been wounded and painfully opened. It is only when we know that we need to heal that we will truly heal. A Native American perspective is that healing happens when our pain and suffering no longer controls us.
Sean asked me what I would tell my eighteen-year old self and I said, “You have to heal before you can even think of being somebody or achieving anything.” This is a difficult message that an eighteen year old would be unlikely to be interested in but somebody’s got to put it out there. Truthfully, the unmitigated force of my true potential could never be uncorked until the dam of unaddressed internal stuff needing to be healed was cleared and the lessons they provided were received and integrated. It is my hope that more people that I can reach will be encouraged to take courage and go within so that they can bring the full force of their lights out to shine.
A curmudgeonly reviewer on Amazon left a scathing, cynical rebuke on a writer colleague’s book page, basically saying, “How dare you! Who are you to say that a healthy diet and lifestyle, yoga, and a positive attitude can make people feel better! You charlatan! You have no idea of the suffering that exists in this world and are a nincompoop for suggesting such farcical platitudes!” Yikes (it’s not our job to fix these people or their problems). Some people say to me, “So, you write self-help books? You should just write fiction, people like stories.” Well, I believe in creating from the soul and spiritual messaging for global awakening is just what comes through. I do believe that, “God helps those who help themselves,” and that the teacher does indeed appear when the student is ready, whether in the form of a magazine front page headline, the library angel finding you a book, a meaningful chance conversation with a random stranger, or a sudden tumble out of normalcy. You can take a book and not understand a single sentence, think it is a load of hooey, and simply not be ready for it. At an independent bookstore, I overheard a woman say, “I thought Eat Pray Love was garbage years before, but I’ve recently picked it up again and think it’s absolutely wonderful now.” No matter what people could possibly think or how a work could be received (or not), a person with a creative calling must produce — and answer to the urges of their soul and no one, nothing else! So, this is what I do now. I create from the soul. That’s my job and it doesn’t seem to come with a title though I do live in a fancy corner unit with a view of the Columbia River.
Previously, I have been a donner of corporate badges and boring neutral work attire, learning the ropes of digital media publishing along with a curriculum vitae smorgasbord of jobs in hospitality, retail, non-profit, NGO, and other stations in life. I have been fortunate to learn from vaccination distribution with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, a Middle East cultural exchange with the United Nations Development Programme, Geographic Information Systems Technology being used to alleviate tensions over land boundaries in Ghana, international trade logistics between Japan and the Port of Los Angeles in California, and a smattering of Fortune 500 ooh-la-la big fancy names like Sony Pictures Entertainment, Hulu, and NBCUniversal. These projects and institutions have provided an incredible, unique education of inestimable value in addition to studies in psychobiology and globalization (social, cultural, environmental, political, economic, and technological). In addition, I have a deeply comprehensive spiritual education combining arts and humanities, global mythologies and spiritual philosophies, Eastern and Western mysticism, and Shamanism. This is a true yin and yang, contemporary and timeless, integrated sum of experiences that I am fortunate to have.

Below is a photo of me looking out at Lyttelton, a charming port town on the South Island of New Zealand, or Aotearoa as it is called in te reo Māori. I grew up in Hawai’i and seem to be intrinsically tied to Oceania, finding no place on Earth homelike unless it is near the Pacific Ocean.
