Haven't been to White Dove in Wichita yet? Here's a tour!
Here's a Peak at the Reiki Room at White Dove!
I tore down the Reiki therapy room in October of 2020 unsure if/when I'd ever be back. There were so many uncertainties then. I stopped in over the weekend to clean, bless, and re-arrange the room ahead of next week's return to Reiki.
It felt SO GOOD to be back!
This world 🌎 needs healing, kindness, and balance more than ever. I hope to bring a little bit of that back to Wichita, starting on Saturday!

YouTube #Shorts Could Be Better Than TikTok!?
These are the insane numbers my little tiny YouTube channel snagged from last week when I started experimenting with YouTube #shorts.
I was getting a few views a month, probably from you—the people who are big enough fans to get the newsletter and keep following what I create.
Are Views Everything?
Look at all the views! Now what? I got a few nasty comments 🙄 and some OK ones. This experiment brought in three new subscribers though!
This is exciting because they aren't people I know—for the first time.
So YouTube #shorts is a TikTok knock-off and a great way to reach a new audience. At the time I'm writing this, the Destiny Architecture channel has 99 videos published.
YouTube experts have told me you don't have your breakthrough before your 100th video... They may be right. But they may or may not have factored #shorts into that advice.
I'm not the only one realizing there's more return from spending time on YouTube shorts. Check out what the founder of Blogilates has to say to Yahoo Finance.
How To Make YouTube #Shorts
All you need is a smartphone and the YouTube app.
- Click on the + sign in the circle at the center (it's at the bottom of the app in iOs).
- Click on "Create a short"
- Then, the rest is similar to TikTok; hit the red "record" dot at the bottom and begin creating. Then, hit the white check at bottom right when you're done.
- Add your text, sound, mess with the timeline, and add filters if you like. Hit next when you're done.
- Caption your short, you don't have much space. I include "#shorts" in my description because I'm testing it out. YouTube feeds these videos automatically to its shorts feed though.
- Select visible, audience, and your comments setting. Since I've gotten a few nasty comments 🙄 I'm selecting "hold potentially inappropriate comments."
- Click the blue bar at the bottom that says "upload short." And you're done!

Still Prefer TikTok?
You read this far? You must really love personal development for content creators, yoga, Reiki, and meditation!
This part is for the real O.G. Destiny Architects only 😉

Follow me on TikTok!
The expanded coaching menu is online now. I'm going to be adding two new options in the coming weeks: After Pay and Bitcoin payments. Yes, I'm a hardcore Bitcoiner. No, I don't care about the falling price.
After Pay is already available, so if you need help with an After Pay plan before I ✨officially✨ get it online, don't hesitate to reach out.
I'm on a mission to make coaching and Reiki more affordable in order to help more people.
Coming next week...
I wrote online for 190 days in a row. I've been taking a break from that pace for the past week. There's much to unpack about putting oneself out there for 190 days in a row!
We'll unpack that next week...
