Finding Your Happiness

Name of Campaign "“ Finding True Happiness

Purpose of Campaign "“ To raise 50K to 75K to publish, print, and market Universe 202: The Process "“ Mind Body Spirit and help raise awareness of all of the Universe Series lectures and books.

We invite you into a journey of wonder, a journey into the Universe.

Have you ever wondered why happiness is as elusive today as it was thousands of years ago? We've invented cellphones and the Internet in the last two decades. We have even put a man onto the moon.
We've achieved amazing feats and yet we haven't been able to find a worldwide solution to the one thing that we all seek but seems to elude us: happiness.

What if we told you we have a solution? Crazy, right? Don't believe us?

Good, because we can prove it to you. Want to find out how? Keep reading.

Author Monica Ortiz has already successfully helped thousands of individuals find their happiness by teaching the principles on how to live their most passionate life. She has done this through a concept about finding your core purpose, first published in her book Universe 101, which is called root-digging.

In Monica's words: "Everyone is born with unlimited potential for happiness, but along the way we lose our direction. Why? Pressures from family, friends and societal expectations teach us to divert away from who we truly are and what we were meant to become.

It doesn't have to be this way. I've helped many people rediscover their happiness by applying the tools outlined in my book Universe 101. These tools teach you how to live in your core purpose. I share the inspiring stories of my clients as they move from a place of pain, frustration, and unhappiness into a beautiful, warm, and purpose filled life.

I would like to give everyone these tools but it is impossible to do so one on one. My book Universe 101 was the beginning of the answer. Publishing Universe 202 continues our path forward into a happy, healthy, world by giving people the resources and knowledge to discover for themselves what they are seeking. Your donation will help us publish this next book in the series."


2011: Stanford University launches a first ever happiness conference recognizing the importance of this in their curriculum.

2012: Monica publishes Universe 101: Learn Grow Evolve and begins her writings and worldwide speaking tour which has already reached 43 countries.

2013: The Universe Series launches a Pay It Forward campaign to give $800,000 dollars worth of Universe 101 (100,000 copies) away for FREE.

Today: Your donation helps us publish Universe 202, which will also influence the world to become a happier and more consciously responsible place.

The success of Universe 101 has already proven that this message is powerful and needs to be shared. If you haven't read it yet, obtain one of the limited 100,000 FREE copies here

Peace and Love to the Universe!

the healing energy in and around Stonehenge through you. 

$151.00: Spiritual Journey to Stonehenge
Dates: (May 14, 2014 - May 16, 2014)

Stonehenge is one of the world's most ancient and mysterious structures. This prehistoric monument is located in Wiltshire, England, and is one of a number of holy sites around the world where the world's core energy can be accessed.

This will be the second time Monica has visited the Stonehenge ruins after her first trip in 2012. In her first trip Monica used her unique gifts to tap into and realign the energy portal at the Stonehenge ruins, resulting in an energetic shift felt worldwide by those with affinity to energy. Her return to Stonehenge will allow her to access this now balanced energy to the benefit of all participants. All participants in the journey will have this powerful energy passed through them, resulting in higher vibrational frequencies, unlocked memories, and a deeper knowledge of their highest Self.

To get the full 3-hour experience please plan to arrive at Stonehenge at Noon.

What's included in your Universe Series Stonehenge Adventure:

"¢Entry into the grounds at Stonehenge "“ We meet at the entrance where you will be given an orientation of what your experience will include. Energy vortex experiences have produced some very insightful, meaningful and awakening moments for the guests who have attended with us previously.

"¢Explanation of Native American sacred herbs "“ Details are explained to you of the significance of the 4 sacred native herbs and how to properly use them. Their importance in native culture during healing, prayer and ceremony is as prevalent today as it was hundreds of years ago.

"¢Native American purification ceremony - After the orientation, you will be immersed in an ancient cleansing ceremony involving sage, favored for its removal of negative forces. This ceremony prepares you for the day's adventure so that you will be ready for the best experience without inhibiting negative energy around and within you.

"¢Explanation of energy and portal that is Stonehenge - There are many theories about the origins of Stonehenge and much conjecture; what cannot be disputed is its importance as a world vortex location. Monica reveals some of the secrets and sets the scene for the day.

"¢Explanation of how Stonehenge is connected to the rest of the world - Stonehenge is arguably one of the most significant energy portals in the World. It, along with Machu Picchu in Peru, The Mounds of Ireland, Sedona in Arizona, The Pyramids of Egypt and similar recorded vortex sites in other locations are responsible for the natural flow of energy around the planet. Scientists have recorded the spiraling energy and in some of these locations like Sedona you can actually see it evidenced in the growth of the surrounding trees. The natural flow of "˜good' energy is essential to the order of things on earth and you will have an increased understanding after this experience.

"¢Guided meditation "“ After our orientation, you will be led through a guided meditation where your body's natural energy will be realigned using Stonehenge's ancient portal energies.

"¢Clearing your energy "“ During the guided meditation Monica will evaluate your personal energy and clear any stagnant energy within you so you can experience the portal's energy to its fullest.

"¢Realignment of your mind-body-spirit "“ The key energy points within your body are your Chakras. Monica will assess, purify and free the flow of energy through your Chakras. 

"¢Discover and get in touch with your spirit animal "“ During the guided meditation and energy clearing Monica often encounters guest's spirit animals. She will reveal these to you and enable you to get in touch with your spirit animal. Guests on previous adventures have particularly enjoyed this part of the day and many have experienced what we describe as "˜a-ha' moments at this point.

"¢Learn how to get in touch with and cultivate your own energy "“  Through a series of energy exercises Monica will teach you how to "˜feel' your own energy and the energy of others. A particular favourite is creating your own energy ball.

"¢Q&A "“ The day wouldn't be complete without answers to the many questions that will arise. Monica provides the answers to your questions and it's also an opportunity for the group to exchange stories and cement friendships forged in this very special place.

Attendees must cover their airfare, accomodations, and meals while in the U.K. and to and from Stonehenge.

Other locations include the Pyramids of Egypt, the Stonehenge ruins, and the Mounds of Ireland.

This journey to Machu Picchu is part of the fulfillment of Monica's spiritual quest which previously took her to the Stonehenge ruins. Her unique energy moving gifts allowed her to tap into and realign the energy portal at Stonehenge, resulting in a worldwide energetic shift felt far beyond England.

All participants in the journey will have the world's core energy passed through them, resulting in higher vibrational frequencies, unlocked memories, and a deeper knowledge of their highest Self.
