Hope Johnson was birthed into a family within a group of Christian missionaries. As a child, Hope traveled with her family throughout the United States, and to a few other countries witnessing to people about their need to be saved by Jesus Christ.

Through her experiences, Hope learned that people are generally afraid of death, and that belief in the coming of another life (or something better in this life) was bringing them some sort of comfort.  But deep down, Hope knew that all this belief was just imagination, and that there was more to life than suffering through this moment while waiting for the next one.

When Hope was 21 years old, she finally developed the courage to do the unthinkable as far as her missionary family was concerned. She turned her back on both Jesus Christ and on her family. She decided that Jesus was not her savior, and that she was going to pursue the life of her dreams on her own.

Hope was very successful in this endeavor as far as the ego was concerned. She enjoyed a romantic relationship with the type of man she would only dream about as a child, she appeared to have a very successful career and she had three beautiful children in private school. For awhile, it was obvious to Hope that getting out from under her family's control and her blind faith in Jesus was serving her very well.

In her late 20’s, Hope started to feel what most people would call ‘burnout’. She had become a talented Paralegal, and she enjoyed her job because it made her feel important, intelligent and successful. But she started to notice each morning as she drove to work, she would wonder – “Is this all there is to life?”.  As Hope’s life went forward, she became more and more "successful" in her endeavors – but this question still loomed “Is this all?”.

Hope shoved that question down for several years, but then in her early 30’s, Hope felt that her decade long relationship with her husband was headed toward divorce. Her once loving union with the man of her dreams had somehow morphed into a loveless power struggle that made her feel horribly lost and alone.

In addition to what looked like the utter failure of her marriage, Hope noticed that her relationship with her children was one of control, manipulation and judgment. This made her persistent career burnout look pale in comparison to the turmoil Hope felt around the members of her own immediate family.

Hope did some introspection and somehow she knew ‘there is more to life’ – which incidentally opened her awareness for what was to come. From there, Hope’s sister in law handed her a book that spoke of a reality beyond thought. As soon as she started reading that book, Hope immediately felt a deep resonance, which made her Thirsty for more.

Hope soon discovered that appreciating anything immediately uplifted her energy, so she would remind herself throughout every day to take a break in her normal thinking and appreciate whatever she could find that would merit appreciation in her perception.

By that time she owned a construction business which required her to drive quite a bit on crowded California freeways, so Hope found appreciation in focusing on Trees, Bushes, Flowers – however sparse they appeared on the side of the freeway. At home, Hope would walk around her house thanking and appreciating everything from the Plant Kingdom that was in her field of sight.

Suddenly there was no shortage of resources. Hope was constantly being presented with information and insight that led out of conditioned mind, and Hope’s vision of absolute freedom was becoming clearer and more believable in her perception.

Eventually, Hope noticed a yoga class at the gym where she normally worked out with weights and cardio machines. She tried the class out, and felt the practice calling to her. So she started doing yoga a couple of times per week.

At some point, Hope started noticing that she was getting spontaneous insights and understanding about things she did not already know, while in the shower. She said to whatever was delivering these insights that she would like to write them down and would be delighted if they would come when Hope was not in the shower. At that moment, an inner voice said ‘Social Media’ – and Hope knew in that instant it was time to create social media accounts.

As soon as Hope’s accounts were active, the insights started to flow more freely, and Hope was delighted to share these healing messages with anyone who was curious. Of course she received a lot of criticism and condemnation as well, but for the most part she enjoyed that too!

Within one month of sharing on social media, a friend offered to build Hope a website where this information could be disseminated more widely. Hope agreed, and thewaytotheway.com was born.

Soon thereafter, Hope cancelled her gym membership (which was a Large part of her personal identity), and started practicing yoga at home.  Eventually that became Kundalini Yoga – a yogic practice that’s designed to balance to the Chakras and invite the Divine Feminine Energy at the base of the spine to Rise into Union with the Crown.

As she continued to question her thought created limitations, Hope received quite a bit of resistance and ridicule from her immediate family, and from other people who thought they knew her. But Hope just appreciated that this too was part of her path, and gradually, all of her relationships were transformed to reflect the more loving and peaceful perspective that Hope was living.

In just a few short years, Hope’s relationship with her long time husband became as fresh as when they were first dating, only now there’s a quality of experience and depth, whereby both Hope and her husband are able to draw more fulfillment from their union than ever thought possible.

A bit more of a challenge for Hope, has been her relationship with her children. After all, Hope was conditioned in her childhood to believe that kids are nuisances, pains in the ass, stressful and need to be controlled. Hope just watched the painful feelings, thoughts and reactions to her children from the awareness that All is Well.

Over time, Hope's awareness was filled with great appreciation for her children and for the important part they play in helping to unravel the conditioned mind. Naturally, the relations between Hope and her children continue to grow in tenderness, acceptance, love and respect for one another.

Hope enjoys feeling the energy of conditioning ‘against the child’ as it arises in her awareness, because she’s confirmed that by embracing and not reacting to her emotion, a new momentum is created through the body/mind that will eventually heal the child within everyone.

Also, within a relatively short time frame after Hope first realized that "there is more to life", Hope was summoned by a powerful energetic force to make her home on the Big Island Hawaii, where the Light of her Inner Flame has since become like a Bonfire which can Light the Way for those who are willing to embrace Absolute Freedom. Hope lives surrounded by plant spirits in the form of beautiful gardens that her husband tends out of love and appreciation for the land, and deep reverence for the Life Force that moves and breathes everything.

In addition to her continued sharing on social media and via her website, Hope has the honor of sharing through Miracle Botanicals, an essential oil business which she uses as a medium to flow the Divine Energy of Compassion to assist in dissolving limiting thought patterns for anyone who comes in contact with them.

At the time of this writing, Hope has completed her first Awakening Retreat in October 2013, and the next one is scheduled for October 2nd - 9th, 2014. To learn more about Hope's upcoming retreat, Click Here.

Hope is also working on a Book called The One Relationship with Tigmonk, and she is also recording fun and insightful videos with Tigmonk, which will be available online soon.

    Hi, Hope.
    I really enjoyed this introduction to who you are and what you’re about. I feel a sense of kinship.
    If you don’t already know her, you would enjoy Julia Rogers Hamrick, author of Recreating Eden and Choosing Easy World. You can learn more about her here: http://www.squidoo.com/myfriendJulia.
    Many Blessings to you,

    Lovely Hope!

    You really really understand life.
    I am happy for you.
    My epiphany and escape from the bondage of gods and goblins happened long ago.
    I say that I am enlightened.
    It means that I see as you do.
    Imagine a world that tears down the veil of fear and hypocrisy!
    There would be no more evil and every lifeform would participate in our human made Eden.

    By the way, I still like good witches, fairies, elves, and all the mythical creatures that project love and happiness.

      Mahalos for your comment, Brad!

      I like to allow Life to be a mystery while understanding that all things arise from no-thing and are created out of thought. The only one capable of creating peace in the world is the Divine One as projected through individual awareness.

      In this regard, the one who perceives fear and hypocrisy ‘in the world’ is creating more of it, while the one who recognizes any perceived fear and hypocrisy to be their own is capable of illuminating those shadows with the Light of their awareness – thereby transforming their world. Instead of resisting ‘evil’ (which is really fear-based thought), I encourage using the energy of awareness to imagine peace (whatever that means to the individual).

      I like good witches, fairies, etc, too! I also appreciate what I perceive to be ‘evil’ because it allows me to create something new.

    Dear Hope:

    What a name. There is so much there in itself. I do not know if this is the name your missionary parents gave you, or if it is something you created for this site, but it is a beautiful name, none-the-less.

    Your LinkedIn comments let me to your site this 12th day of September, 2011 and I like others felt a kinship to your expressions. I have considered myself a spiritual person more than a religious person for decades but feel I am still sriving more than BEING. I have read books like “The Secret of Letting Go” by Guy Finley and the “Power of Now” by Eckhart Tolle and “A New Earth” by the same author. I have read the Bible, Torah, Quran, Tao, and other readings. I havve prayed, fasted, and striven to be the best I know how.

    However, deep inside I feel it is still strving and not BEING. I long to Be, but am not sure how to walk in my TRUE voice and my True Being. What I know is I want to say thank you for sharing. As a fellow occupant of tis creation, I want to wish you and your family, PEACE, LOVE, & TRANQUILITY.

    I pray for deeper revelation for you and for us all and sincerely wish you and your family LOVE!

    If you want to sense a part of my spirit beyond these words, visit my Professional Website, which is a manifestation of my spirit. All quotes were selected by me. All photo’s were either taken by me or approved by me, the two videos resinate what is within my heart and soul but I still am holding myself back and not being all I was created to Be.

    I am my greatest limitation and I no longer wish to be. If you have any advice please share via my email.

    From The Heart,

    • Hope Johnson says:

      Aloha Eric!

      As the story goes, my parents were originally going to name me Rachel, but since my mom ‘endured’ 52 hours of labor they decided to name me Hope because they just hoped I’d eventually come out! LOL!

      I’m so pleased that my LinkedIn comments have led you to my site!

      You are already the Being you are striving to become, and in that striving, you are missing ‘who you are’. It’s true that you are your only limitation, and the way to transcend that limitation is to release your grip on who you think you are, and simply allow your self to be expressed as you are HereNow.

      When the self you have created out of thought is fully accepted by you, your energy aligns with Source, and the path to greater experience of Being is illuminated for you as your awareness moves with ease and grace into ‘lighter’ frequencies of mind.

      Loving you,
