Journey Towards Collective Liberation


Embrace Your Inner Creator

Design with Divine invites us into a dance with our inner creator, that sacred consciousness and inner light guiding us toward authenticity and love. By living through this inner guidance, we navigate personal barriers and foster collective liberation, embracing change in ourselves and the world.

Join me in a virtual Conscious Candle workshop


On Sunday, July 14th, I, Julia, will host a virtual Conscious Candle workshop. Candles have a universal allure; their flame draws us to slow down and contemplate. When we embed our intentions into a candle, we harness this wisdom, bringing that energy into our lives.

In this session, you’ll connect to your inner light and explore ways to bring healing to yourself, your family, and your community. Through guided journal prompts, you will discover your areas of growth and share them with others. You will choose scents that resonate with your intention and create rituals for lighting your candle, transforming the mundane into sacred acts.

After the workshop, you will receive your candle in the mail, along with a video of me pouring it while connecting to your intention. The workshop runs from 3:00 to 5:30 PM Pacific Time and is limited to 6 participants. To sign up, please fill out this form and send a payment of $75 (includes domestic shipping) to Julia (Venmo: @designwithdivine).



conscious CANDLE

This candle is hand-poured with intention and infused with the energy of the moment through astrology, tarot, and/or oracle cards. These are small batch candles (5-12 candles per batch), and are crafted to align with a specific intention, using chosen scents that resonate with the desired energy. Current offerings include "I Am Not Alone" and "When I Am Rooted and Aligned, I Flourish."

Your Guide

Julia Thompson, PhD

an invitation

to an adventure that turns inner barriers into conscious choices, fueling personal growth and collective liberation. This journey illuminates your path, converting intuitive insights into impactful actions. For example, intentions to spread kindness, engage authentically at work, or mend relationships are not just personal milestones but acts contributing to societal healing. Engage with candle making, art, and introspection to unearth your deepest intentions. You're not alone; you're supported and uplifted as you boldly infuse intentionality into your life.

Why Candle Making?

Candle making brings ethereal elements, like intentions and dreams, into tangible everyday life. As you blend fragrance with wax, you’re invited to visualize your desires—perhaps choosing a rose scent to nurture presence with your beloveds. The curing of the wax symbolizes your intentions taking shape, encouraging you to explore these aspirations further through art and reflection. Incorporating a candle into daily routines transforms ordinary moments into rituals, acting as a beacon that gently reminds you of your intentions.

However, lasting change extends beyond intentions and rituals; it requires embodying them in your actions. Engaging in practices such as journaling or consulting with a coach is crucial for overcoming life’s challenges and living out your intentions, ensuring the spark from your candle lights a path of sustained growth.
