12 Steps to Mind-Blowing Happiness™:
A Journal of Insights, Quotes & Questions
to Juice Up Your Journey

Everyone wants happiness and freedom from suffering: people, animals, and even insects. The desire for mind-blowing happiness, however, is unique to humans. We have the ability to access our Divine consciousness in ways that other species simply cannot. This innate ability gives rise to a profound desire for exceptional joy, purpose, and fulfillment.


This journal is carefully designed to walk you through the 12-step approach developed over many years of studying Buddhist and yogic philosophy, life coaching strategy and therapeutic techniques. This wisdom is shared in a way that allows you to craft your own story and enhance the trajectory of your life.


As you unfold the joyful truth in each step, you will undoubtedly “juice up” your life’s journey. When life is juicy, it’s rich, ripe and bubbling over with promise. You realize there’s so much inside of you. It’s more than you knew and more than enough. Your cup overflows with abundance. You discover so much goodness, you can’t help but share. You no longer worry about the things you used to. You’re confident about the future. You wake up each day with joy and gratitude.

That’s Mind-Blowing Happiness™.

Thinking Outside the Chrysalis:
A Black Woman's Guide to Spreading Her Wings

The Greek origin of the word “chrysalis,” or butterfly cocoon, means “gold.” The shell that encloses us is often a beautiful façade that keeps us trapped in complacency. This book will show you how to identify your passions and find the courage to break away from routine and live your most authentic and joyful life. Butterflies feed on drops of nectar. With a simple 12-step approach, you will receive the nourishment you need to soar through life with the ease of a butterfly. In this book, I reveal the 12 Steps to Mind-Blowing Happiness for the first time.


Our thinking is what limits us. If we believe there is nothing outside our cocoon, we can never have a breakthrough. We first must have a “think-through,” believing in the effortless abundance waiting for us on the other side.


This book uses real-life experiences, along with Buddhist and yogic philosophies to shine light on the freedom awaiting you outside the chrysalis. 

Chocolate Soufflé

Chocolate Soufflé was released in 2015 under my pen name, Trish Ahjel. This story was written in 1995 long before I became vegan (2014) or even tried yoga (2000).



Chocolate Soufflé follows three main protagonists whose lives collide: Aura, a young advertising executive from Brooklyn looking for love while battling sickle-cell anemia; Eddie, a recent Bahamian immigrant pursuing a modeling career and following his father’s questionable footsteps; and Sophia, a clothing designer from Mississippi grappling with her sexuality and the weight of her parents’ complicated marriage. 



It’s a sexy, funny, smart romantic drama set in New York City in the late ’80s and early ’90s. It will take you back, make you laugh and maybe even shed a tear.
