A spiritual awakening can be scary, overwhelming, and even painful at times. We've brought together a collective of energy healers and spiritual guides to support you on your journey toward ascension. Join our collective as a member today and surround yourself with other like-minded seekers.
I want to share with you how the concept for Ascension Collective came through me as a perfect example of Divine Inspiration and the purpose & specific vision I received. I'll also reveal why this is the perfect time to bring such a project to life and extend an offer to you to be a part of making it happen.
From the moment I first experienced my awakening, I began meditating with the intention of strengthening my intuition and inviting in guidance in a way that I would be able to recognize. I established a nightly routine of asking my guides/higher self for revelations through my dreams, setting an intention to remember astral traveling, and began placing an amethyst crystal under my pillow. When I'd wake up in the mornings, usually at 5:55 on the dot, I'd write my dreams in my journal and then research them to gain clarity. Unfortunately, either the interpretations would either be vague or not make any sense, even after months of trying.
Instead of getting frustrated like I used to do, I shifted my focus to shadow work and healing my chakras. I started doing guided meditations to bring in more divine light, activate my DNA, and shift to my highest possible timeline. Two days after shifting my timeline, I was snuggling in my bed with my 6-year-old son watching an animated movie he's seen at least 57 times, so I wasn't interested in it at this point. I was more focused on how soft his skin was and how good his hair smelled and just felt totally in love with this perfect little boy in this tremendously precious moment. I remember taking a deep breath and as I exhaled, I received a vision of me walking into this space that was called Ascension Collective. I'll go into the details in the next column, but first I want to share how I reacted to this divine inspiration.
My first thought was "Whoa! OMG! That place is amazing! I can't wait to walk through that space in my physical body! I wish it already existed!" But of course, ego steps in & says things like, "Who are you to make this happen? You can't afford such a big project anyway." So I let it go, thinking that it might just manifest for me at some point in the future when "the stars align."
But the very next day I was watching "Missing Links" on Gaia with Gregg Braden and this episode was about how ideas exist in the ether/matrix and when the time is right, our intuition taps into it and that's how we receive inspiration. I recorded the words he said next because it felt like he was literally speaking directly to me:
"When the Universe gives you the gift of a creation, and taps you on the shoulder and says 'here is something to share with the world,' that inspiration means the world is ready for your creation in that moment...Please share your gifts with the world because we need what you're creating. You never know how your creation is going to influence or impact someone in this world when you share it with them. The fact that you have that inspiration tells me that the world is ready for whatever it is that you've created."
I immediately went to work by meditating again with the intention to learn more about the details of this project, looking for retail spaces, figuring out budgets, doing market research, sketching out the floorplan & decor, and making lists of services, products, and healers. The more attention I gave to this, the more information flowed to me, so I put it all together here for you and I invite you to support this project in any way that resonates with you most.
I go into a bit more detail of the services Ascension Collective will provide in the section below, but I think it's important to share the vision I received first.
When you walk into the space, everything is a calming white with natural wood accents for warmth and the logo is displayed behind the reception desk. There are retail shelves to the left & right with crystals, tarot decks, books, yoga mats, tote bags, etc. There are plants to help everyone feel grounded while on their ascension journey.
There's an open doorway between reception and the retail shelves that opens to a hallway. To the left is a refreshment table, then a fish tank, and then two doors on the left for the activity rooms (T'ai Chi, Qigong, Yoga. group coaching, group meditations, & mind/body/soul classes for kids; the rooms also serve as classroom space and private rentals for events) and two doors on the right for a private nursing room and a unisex restroom. At the end of the hallway is the management office with desks for healers to use when they're not with clients.
If you turn to the right after passing reception, there are two doors to the left - one for past-life regression and one for my office. The hallway turns to the right where three doors lead to an Ayurveda consultation room, a Reiki room, and a sound-proof room for sound healing. Most members will likely be HSPs or Empaths that are sensitive to sound, so it's important to make sure they aren't disturbed if they're on the Reiki table.
I couldn't find any pictures online that look similar to this vision, so I used my rudimentary drawing skills to sketch it out. It is available for interested investors upon request.
The overall feel of the space will be loving, grounded, and supportive. It will have an atmosphere of inclusion/oneness, educational/guidance, and joy! I want people to feel like they're home as soon as they walk in.
I found the perfect space that has an outdoor patio connected to the building as well as a grassy space behind the building surrounded by beautiful mature trees. As weather permits, movement classes, group meditations, and group coaching can be done in those spaces to better connect with nature and each other.
I think it's equally important what we do out in the world. We'll return all the love and support Mother Gaia has given us for centuries by helping to remove trash and plant more trees through a partnership with a local non-profit. We'll also organize group travel to high-energy places, participate in "voluntourism" as a group, and visit ancient historical sites that can both teach us and heal us.
People will be waking up at ever-increasing rates, which makes it more important than ever for this collective to bring healing, knowledge, and support to the community, and hopefully, we can start a wave that ripples to other communities.
T'ai Chi, QiGong, & Yoga classes help you find balance, connect to your body, and transmute energy (so important for Empaths & HSPs!)
The ancient practices are perfect for grounding, clearing the mind, and maintaining a healthy temple for your soul.
All instructors are certified!
Connect with others on their awakening journey and receive guidance in a group setting (max 10 seekers per session) from certified Spiritual Coach & Owner, Tara Raymundo.
We use a holistic approach to guiding your ascension by implementing techniques like gratitude, shadow work, and homework, to name a few.
Mind, Body, & Soul programs for kids (6-12) & teens (13-17). We'll help them on their journey while you're working on your journey.
We're parents, too, and we want to make sure the whole family is included in the experience.
Are you a new mom? We have a private nursing room available, too!
Are you experiencing a Kundalini awakening? We understand this can be a traumatic time, so we invite you to join our Kundalini support group.
Optional group meditations after each class to focus on world peace. The more love & energy we collectively bring to this, the faster and smoother this transition to 5D will be for all of us.
Energy healing to unblock chakras that could be hindering your ascension. If you're an Empath or Narcissist, unblocking and healing specific chakras can bring balance to your relationships.
Sound healing to improve overall health. I've seen it cure cancer, but since it hasn't been approved by the FDA, I can't offically make that claim. lol.
Our Ayurvedic Practitioner on staff will provide consultations & recommendations for natural remedies to heal your body.
Ayurveda is an ancient Indian holistic healing system rooted in the belief that illness is caused by an imbalance between the mind, body, and spirit. Of course we have to include this practice in our collective.
Accessing your past-lives can help you heal karma, release oaths that may be hindering you in this life, and can even show you the origins of your innate gifts.
It's your birthright to access your Akashic record and is a transformative experience of connection to your higher self and gaining clarity on your purpose.
Need a clean, high-vibe space for your event? We got you covered!
Private room rentals are available for your birthday parties, business events, or even to record your YouTube videos.
Folding tables & chairs are included, but feel free to bring any additional props or decor.
Minimum of 2 hours. Must reserve 4 weeks in advance.

Wim Hoff breathing, techniques, & much more!
Want to lead a class? Just let us know. We're always looking for subject matter experts.
Expand your conscious with spiritual & ancient wisdom around the globe. When possible, we partner with DiscoverCorps for sustainable travel and volunteer opportunities abroad.
Travel to Nazca, Peru for shamanic healing & visit Machu Picchu. Explore the Giza plateau to feel the energy emanating from the Pyramids. Volunteer at the elephant orphanage in Thailand. So many other destinations are on the list. **Bring the kids!**
We use our love, gifts, money, and time to heal & protect Mother Gaia. She has supported humanity with her abundance no matter how much we have desecrated her. It's time we show her our love and appreciation as she transitions to 4th density.
Our partnership with Keep Sugar Land Beautiful is making a difference at the local level - join us!
We are the change we have been waiting for.
We know everyone is starting their spiritual journey at a different place and may feel called to a specific practice or healing modality one week and it may change the next week. That's completely normal and we want you to know we're here to support you no matter what you may need or want from an ascension perspective.

Founder, Empath, Spiritual Coach, Past-Life Hypnotherapist
As a child, Tara grew up in a single-parent family with her younger brother in the projects of Tampa, FL. Though she was raised as a Jehovah's Witness, she never really understood religion. In high school, she became interested in Buddhism and it resonated with her more, but it still wasn't quite the right fit. When she married a Catholic man, she gave that a try, but quickly realized organized religion isn't for her, so she started exploring personal spirituality, developing her intuition, and received her first of many epiphanies to become a Life Coach. From there, the guidance led her to other certifications and ultimately to create Ascension Collective.
She's also a single mom of two kids, Celina & Orion, an author, world traveler, and avid scuba diver.
HSP, Office Coordinator, Bookkeeper (placeholder; position not filled yet)
Born Julian Briggs, Julissa never felt at home in her body and realized at 9 years old that she was born with the wrong external organs. She transitioned to female at 24 years old, and even though she felt more like herself when she looked in the mirror, she still felt like she didn't belong on Earth. Two years ago, she stumbled across a YouTube video about Starseeds that immediately resonated with her. Since then, she's been on a quest to learn more about starseeds, her purpose in incarnating here at this time, and to help raise the vibration of this planet as we transition into 5D consciousness.
Julissa recently married her partner, Andrea, in a beautiful outdoor ceremony in the Colorado mountains and are in the process of buying their first house together in Katy.
Starseed, Ayurvedic Practitioner (placeholder; position not filled yet)
Orphaned at the age of two, Lalita was adopted by a bi-racial couple in Houston and grew up with two siblings who were also adopted. Though her parents loved all of their adopted children, she always struggled with her identity and her purpose in life. As soon as she graduated high school, Lalita felt called to return to India so she could simultaneously reconnect with her heritage and discover her purpose: Ayurveda.
Between her Ayurveda training and intuitive abilities, Lalita always knows just what to recommend for your ultimate health and well-being.
When she's not healing others, she is developing her automatic writing & channeling skills. She's also a parent to two rescue dogs, Cinnamon & Ginger.

Here's my life in a nutshell:
In high school I had enough credits to graduate in December, but had the option to join the co-op program where I'd go to school in the morning and work at American General in the afternoon. My mom was a single mom working at Walmart, so I decided to take the job so I could help with the bills and pay for my own senior expenses, like the class ring, cap & gown, etc. I graduated in the top 10% of my class with a 3.8 GPA. I was the first in my family to graduate high school and felt like I could do anything, but I had no clarity at all about what I wanted to be when I grew up, so I joined the Army. At the time it seemed like a perfect solution. I'd get to travel, I'd stay in shape, and they'd pay for my college when I got out. Maybe by then I'd have a better idea of what I wanted to do/be.
Things didn't quite work out like that. During boot camp, I received one injury after another because my body wasn't used to doing anything more than walking around the mall, so half way through the training I was sent to PTRP (Physical Training & Rehabilitation Program) to heal. Months went by and my original platoon had graduated and got shipped off all around the world. I felt so stuck and when I heard that we could request a discharge, I jumped at it! A few weeks later I was sent home with a "general discharge." In hindsight, I think that was my spirit team trying to get me back on track. Although I didn't know what path I should be on, clearly a military career wasn't it.
A couple months after returning home, I got a job as a receptionist for an office products company and became friends with the IT guy. He encouraged me to go into the IT field because it paid really well. Having grown up incredibly poor (getting a bag of random toys from Goodwill was a treat!) and clearly lacking direction, I followed his advice and enrolled in ITT Technical Institute. I caught on easier than I expected and graduated 2 years later with a 3.8 GPA.
That launched my first career where I spent nearly a decade completely geeking out and making lots of money. I rose to a management position after only 3 years but then there was a merger and my position got absorbed. That's when I switched to being an IT consultant but felt burned out by 30 years old.
When I had my first child, I stayed home with her, and even though I was exhausted all the time, I still felt a strong need to have a creative outlet and decided to try creating a wedding planning company and then an interior decorating company. Of course, I got the certifications and worked with a few clients, I couldn't figure out how to market myself and was still stuck in the mindset that I could do it all myself. That's when I learned a valuable lesson: it takes a village!
When my kids got older, I returned to the workforce full-time, but instead of returning to IT, I wanted something more creative, so I went into retail. First I helped clients design their kitchens & bathrooms at a tile store, then I moved over to helping clients decorate their homes at a furniture store. I was promoted to Visual Presentation Manager, which involved decorating vignettes across multiple styles (vintage, contemporary, kids, etc) and then was promoted to manage four stores across the market. I absolutely loved the creative aesthetics I got to play with on a daily basis, but interacting with so many energies really started to get to me and I couldn't take it.
Around the same time, my marriage fell apart, so I felt stuck. I became a single mom overnight and was terrified of leaving the stability of this job, even though my soul was pulling me away - I wasn't listening. That's when I finally started meditating for the first time. I was reaching out to whoever or whatever was "out there" that could guide me.
A few months later, as I was driving to this job I had begun to loathe, I was hit with an epiphany to be a Life Coach. This was the spark of my spiritual awakening because as I was trying to figure out what a Life Coach was, I did a ton of work on myself, immersed myself in all things Law of Attraction related, and then went deeper into the spiritual & metaphysical side of things.
Now I'm a Gaia-watching, oneness-seeking, chakra balancing, crystal-loving, tree-hugging co-creator that's manifesting an epic world for all of us to thrive in!
