My work with Journey to Worthy, through both workshops and one-on-one sessions, has opened my heart and balanced my vibe beyond all expectations. I have tapped into a part of me where I create magic in my life. I feel better physically, balanced emotionally, and connected spiritually. I recommend Journey to Worthy to anyone who is ready to step into balance, love and inner understanding. Thank you, Darnella, for being of service and helping me become my authentic self.
Journey to Worthy…is my love letter to the world. It is “inspiration for life” based upon the principles of Quantum Physics made available via lectures, presentations and core curriculum classes. Under the influence of “inspiration”—primarily self-inspiration, the human being finds within himself the strength, power and resources to rebirth and regenerate the “Self.” It is about the reunion of “lost love,” the love of Self in one’s own life. It is also the full measure of taking responsibility, owning the lessons learned and transcending all that would dare cast a shadow against your majesty. Based upon the core principles of self-love and self-worth, Journey to Worthy’s mission statement can be summarized in one sentence, “I am inherently worthy and I know it.”
About Darnella Ford
DARNELLA FORD is the author of five (5) bestselling novels and the recipient of the BEST NEW VOICE OF 2003. Her fifth novel, FINDING ME, was recently nominated for the 2010 STONEWALL LITERARY AWARD, one of the most prestigious literary awards in the country. Known for her ability to create “unpretentious gritty masterpieces,” Darnella has established a well-respected name for herself in the world of literature. However, in 2006, her life would profoundly change when Darnella traveled to Seattle and began a three-year course of study in Quantum Physics, Neuroscience and Neuro-Biology. Under the instruction of some of the most brilliant Physicists in the country, Darnella studied the profound world of energy/matter and how it all affects our daily lives.
Deeply inspired by the changes she made in her own life—in 2008 Darnella created and launched JOURNEY TO WORTHY, a program of inspiration designed to expand awareness and transform lives. With its genesis rooted in the science of Quantum Physics, Journey to Worthy is based upon the principles of self-love and self-worth. In essence, self-love is the cornerstone of the program. In simple terms Darnella explains, “Whenever we take a trip…we always calculate the time it takes us to get from point A to point B. Well, the longest trip I ever took was the journey to my own worthiness!”
Ingeniously, Darnella simplified the complex nature of science and began to do something unprecedented—she took Einstein’s E=MC2 to the inner city, mental health care facilities, prisons, and the classrooms of Compton. But she didn’t stop there—she also took her program to Corporate America and to the affluent. With her unique teaching style, she created compelling presentations and began to affect change and initiate healing to all those who came in contact with her message—which simply states YOU ARE WORTHY!!!
JOURNEY TO WORTHY has garnished its own share of “fans” and the people who are touched by the program are changed forever. Under the umbrella of JOURNEY TO WORTHY are multiple programs with one of its standouts—a special presentation titled “Beautiful” which has been devoted to teenage women and explores the nature of “authentic beauty” as it relates to self-esteem and self-worth. It is Darnella’s hope that a human being’s understanding of their intrinsic “worth” will be as much a part of our culture as I-Phones, I-Pads and Facebook. When all is said and done, Darnella insists that the most important aspect of JOURNEY TO WORTHY will always be “the people themselves” and to that end, “I have devoted the rest of my life to the profound knowing of truth and the ultimate experience of man’s highest potential actualized in the material world.”
Love Stories & Letters from The Trenches
I never quite understood the feeling of belonging either with someone or somewhere. My entire life I felt somehow ‘misplaced’ and then one day; I walked into one of Journey To Worthy’s Evenings of Inspiration and I found myself amongst the people I now call “my tribe.” It was Love at first meeting. I never thought I’d find people who are as “weird” as I am; who enjoy discussing Quantum Physics and love trees, see and feel things others seem to have forgotten how… People who are loving and supporting and open to anything I want to talk about. It is because of the love, openness and support I have found that I now can honestly say that I trust that all is well; and that whatever I want is already mine. It is because of this that I don’t worry as I used to. I don’t fret the future and I’m finally not afraid to love and accept who I am!! I realize now that dreams do come true and I acknowledge that I’m living the dream of a 4 year old me. I drive or walk around and look around in gratitude for I have finally found where I “belong”…I belong in ME.
Journey to Worthy (JTW) has truly created life changing miracles for me. It has broadened my conscious awareness of self and self love. It has helped me through some of the toughest relationships and has created a close community of support and unconditional love. It has literally helped me to increase my financial status and I tripled my income in the first month of participating in Darnella’s workshops. It has helped me on my path of wellness and good health, and continues to aid me in my journey to stand in my truth, self love, forgiveness, love for others, and seeing myself at my highest potential….it’s truly been a journey. My heart thanks you for sharing your gift! Thank you Darnella!!!
Well for starters…it has been an amazing journey! Everthing that Darnella has taught, I’ve learned how to take and apply it to my life. What stands out to me is through Journey To Worthy, I learned how to let go of pain and hurt…and how to love me. I’m also learning how to love others as I’m beginning to love myself. Journey to Worthy taught me about Universal Love, energy, trees, life and abundance. I also learned to stop “chasing” my life and live in the FLOW of life itself. Darnella teaches with sooooo much love, passion and truth. I love you, sistah!
From the stories I heard, I knew that I wanted to learn from Darnella Ford, long before I’d ever met her. Anyone, who is combining cutting-edge information from new discoveries in brain science and physics and applying them to spirituality and personal growth; is somebody I want to listen to! Yet, learning from Darnella, at a Journey To Worthy “Evening of Inspiration” was more than just worthwhile, it was life-changing. The information she provides is potent and powerful. Yet, she delivers it with both humor and a surprising vulnerability, which makes her so much more relatable than many of the speakers and teachers out there. I left that night feeling a shock to my system and within a few short weeks, my life has significantly changed for the better. Recently, I attended one of her multi-day retreats at the Sequoia National Forest. The experience was nothing less than magical! Getting to know the other attendees, I was pleasantly surprised to learn that many had been working with Darnella for years and that many had overcome some immensely HUGE obstacles in their lives. When asked by one of the newest members of the Journey To Worthy community during the retreat, “What is it that you actually do for people?” Darnella responded, “I love them. That’s all I ever do with anyone…I love them.” I noticed that she does this by seeing a higher version, of each person she works with, than they are capable of seeing for themselves. She keeps her eye on the highest version of them and she lets them know that they are WORTHY so that they can finally see it too. Darnella is a true gift to the world!
In my life, I’ve always been this child that has struggled with finding Self. Many years ago, I met an angel in Darnella Ford. She brought light in my life. Coming from a broken down mind and spirit, I was willing to listen to what she had to offer. I had been through so many trials and tribulations, I didn’t know what was real or imagined. Well, Journey To Worthy is real! And I can see how far I’ve come through my journey and see it working through all of my struggles. I know now that if I set my mind, body and spirit in line with what I totally want…it’s mine. Journey To Worthy’s teachings have taught me an abundant mind set. From the loss of my kids, to my homelessness, my life has changed and is getting better by the day. I have learned to have higher thinking that helps me be my greatest. I believe in all that I have learned through Journey To Worthy and I continue to live in the journey and dedicate my life to understanding all that I am. You are a true blessing to me and many Darnella Ford. I love ❤ you from the top of my head to the bottom of my feet for coming into my life. You are what Journey To Worthy is really all about. My story continues. Thank you, Darnella Ford. The journey continues always in love.
In the summer of 2016, I was driving on the 101 Freeway and saw friends in the car alongside me. For whatever the reason, I started following them…and they were headed to a Journey To Worthy evening of inspiration. That’s how I found myself at my first Journey To Worthy event, quite by accident, or not. Becoming connected with Journey To Worthy has opened an avenue of success and abundance. I am living a life of Journey To Worthy as I enjoy the path. I love to our group and fellow Journey To Worthy crew. I have learned that nothing is impossible for those who believe. Thank you for everything.
There’s so much to say about my Journey to Worthy experience. I’d like to start where I met this beautiful lady. I believe that everything happens for a reason, and about 7 years ago, I sat by her at Agape International Spiritual Center one Sunday not knowing how she would eventually change my life, my way of thinking. We often sat in the same place every Sunday, with a smile, beautiful greetings, and hugs at the end of service. One Sunday, heart broken and truly struggling, she held my hand, looked me in my tear filled eyes and said, “you will be just fine.” We embraced and exchanged numbers. I left feeling like I made a new friend.
My first Journey to Worthy workshop, Darnella was the only familiar face in the room. I told myself, I was going to respectfully observe (and not participate), but the love I received made me want to be open and available to everything happening. I had not felt that safe since I left my home of South Carolina. Here there were people that I had never met but made me feel like family. Darnella’s openness about her life experiences makes her relatable. She’s “been there and done that” and she will tell you honestly not to feel ashamed because you are not the only one who has made “mistakes.”
At an early age, my mom made me feel like I wasnt good enough, so I was still trying to prove her wrong. Journey to Worthy is helping me to let go of those feeling and to know that I am enough. I’m still a work in progress and with Darnella’s help, and my involvement in Journey to Worthy, I know I will go far. The encouragement and the unconditional love felt is something words can’t describe. All I want to say is, “I love you and I thank my ancestors for bringing you, keeping you in my life. Peace and love Darnella Ford.”
You know you’re somebody who is a part of the Journey To Worthy community when you’re faced with something beyond tough, beyond challenging and beyond anything you’ve EVER thought you could handle…and the first thing you think is…“I gotta go see Darnella!” The thing about Darnella is this: she’s not here to tell you what to do. She’s not here to tell you the way it’s going to work out. She’s here to support you, nurture you and to help you see the power that you have within yourself. Recently, I was down to the wire…and my husband, two children and I had to move from our home. With no prospects of a new home in sight and a ton of rejection letters from potential landlords, I didn’t know what I was going to do. With only a few days before the moving van showed, I didn’t know where my family was going to go….or what we were going to do. I literally had no clue how I was going to be provided for and have my needs met. It was one of the lowest possible moments I ever experienced. But after my session with Darnella, and the Journey To Worthy meditation and practice I was given by Darnella, I was able to use the spiritual tools she provided to lift me up out of the dark place that I had found myself in. Within days, a solution to this challenge presented itself, and it was the answer beyond my wildest imagination! It is this kind of trust in the goodness and power of God, and this kind of faith that Journey To Worthy gives to us. I know now, more than ever before, that I am a soul of light, a being of love, deserving of love, happiness and a happily ever after. Thank you Journey To Worthy for teaching me and helping me to utilize the mindset necessary to a shine a light on my life!
Journey To Worthy has touched my life in a way that words will never do justice, but I will try my best. When I first met Darnella, I was at a very low point in my life. I felt that God had forgotten about me and that I was stuck in an endless cycle of depression and poor choices. When we first spoke, I felt as though I was not alone in the universe and that I wasn’t just a crazy human who had lost his way and understanding. That alone began the breakthrough! To know that I was not an island set deep in the seas away from all human understanding and connection. Journey to Worthy has helped me to reach within myself and find the vision and blessing that GOD has for me. It has helped me discover the truth in this life. It has brought me back to life and love of myself. Darnella has a way of helping you tap into your soul and then show you how to reconnect to the Universe. It is exactly as the name says, Journey to Worthy! It is your Journey to finding and remembering that you are not just worthy to be in the Universe, but that you are a blessing to it. I also want to say this that Journey to Worthy is not a religion…it is an understanding of yourself, this world and beyond. Thank you Darnella!!
Journey to Worthy is what I credit the most to my spiritual growth, and also in the shortest amount of time. I’ve enjoyed being a part of the Evenings of Inspiration, working with Darnella privately for Biomagnetic Healing Sessions, and the Journey To Worthy Retreats where she uses nature for healing and insight.
I began working with Darnella privately in October 2014. I felt desperate and was ready to do anything to change the way I was feeling. I felt lost and I didn’t feel I had a voice. I was married to a successful television writer, had two beautiful children, and lived in a beautiful home. Yet I was unhappy.
As my marriage ended, Darnella was a huge support to not only me (but also my children and ex-spouse). I’m forever grateful for her helping me through some of the most challenging moments of my life. We have laughed and cried together. I consider her a dear friend, mentor, and a phenomenal spiritual teacher.
I’m now in a new relationship that feels more authentic than anything I’ve ever experienced. My ex-spouse and I are making a wonderful team as co-parents. I finally found my voice. I write, sing and uplift people when I speak. I found so much confidence and healing with Darnella’s guidance.
I remember when Darnella told me, “Come work with me privately. It will change your life.” As promised, working with her has completely changed my life. She continues to touch many lives. She is so loving, not judgmental, and still cuts to the truth with grace and love. My biggest prayer is that Darnella can reach an even bigger audience so she can heal even more people. She is one of a kind. There’s no one like her and she’s offering so much valuable wisdom and healing. Our world would be so much better if everyone had access to Darnella’s teachings.
With so much love,
How does one create sentence structures and paragraphs to wholly express the magical process of a life transformation? Journey to Worthy has been, and currently is, a sturdy spiritual foundational home for me. I was led to Darnella by an inner yearning within myself, calling me to claw my way out of the gray, lifeless mold I was trapped in. I wasn’t living. I was suffocating every day…in silence. My outside world knew nothing of my anguish. My smile and upbeat personality served me well. To my family and friends, I had it all. In 2015, I had been married for 20 years and had been blessed with 10 beautiful children. I had successfully painted the picture perfect family life; however, inside I struggled with a growing desire to be free. My current role in life was literally sucking the spiritual air right out of me. I lived in conflict. I understood that my true desires did not match the desires of my then husband. I felt anchored in the disturbing truth that if I truly followed my heart and allowed myself to break through, I would destroy all that I worked to build. The picture would be shattered.
I became a part of the Journey to Worthy community back in 2013. Darnella nursed me from my infirmary of fear. Her teachings of self-love and self-worth were a salve to my eyes. She helped me to see who I really was. For the first time in my life I saw myself as more than just domestic help–who happened to be married. I was more than a mom, daughter, friend, aunt, cousin and employee. I was more than the statue, mold and picture I co created with the world’s predominate programs. I begin to see my beauty, flaws, treasures and challenges. I begin to see myself as fluid – always changing and evolving; a flow of idiosyncratic perfection.
Yes! Journey to Worthy fed me well with universal truths and teachings rooted in metaphysics. I absorbed the knowledge, the discussions, the acceptance and the love. The community continues to support me throughout my journey. I have grown tremendously. I am stronger now. I’ve made some significant changes in my life that has proven to be challenging – to say the least. And, I did it! I broke through. My days are brighter, I breathe easier. My heart is eternally grateful to Journey to Worthy for passionately loving me and helping me find my way back home.
I want to introduce you to someone who has shifted the trajectory of my LIFE here on this planet: I met Ms. Darnella Ford at the annual “Service Day” at Agape International Spiritual Center over a decade ago now. She introduced herself humbly as a “poet” and we continued upon our day bonding and being of service to the local community. How fitting that the day I met her was “Service Day” when EVERY day that I’ve encountered her, since then, she is the EMBODIMENT of service and has been dishing out “acts of service” like she got a free box from the warehouse. I don’t know anyone that is as dedicated to individual transformation on a global scale as Darnella. Well…maybe I do: My Sensei “Daisaku Ikeda” (President of the Sokka Gakkai International – a lay organization with over 12 million practitioners in 192 different countries).
So – do you get how big Darnella is?
Since I met her she has manifested and continues to expand and evolve what her heart had been envisioning for so many years “Journey to Worthy.” Journey to Worthy was not created from a desire to sell a product or service. Journey to Worthy was not created to “fit in” to the “self-help” trend. No. Journey to Worthy was created DIRECTLY from Darnella’s courage to face the darkness within her own soul. And those of you who REALLY know me – understand the power, purpose and wisdom that comes from facing one’s own darkness. My first retreat with “Journey to Worthy” was to the Sequoias in California. I had found out (not two months earlier) that I have been diagnosed with aggressive breast cancer. One of the very first people I called was Darnella – who offered herself to me as a friend in service. But, to me: she was an earth angel. You see, when LIFE ITSELF was uncertain – Darnella was grounded in her KNOWING that all was ALREADY well. The retreat was paid for as a gift from one of the other retreat sisters with whom Darnella had shared my story. I had anxiety disorder at the time and suffered multiple panic attacks throughout the retreat weekend. It wasn’t until I decided to SHARE exactly what I was going through with the group that I immediately felt connected, supported and lifted up. Little did I know that the next day I would be the focus of an intense healing ceremony.
Darnella walked us along a path lined with ancient Sequoias and had us stop underneath one in particular, asking us to make a circle and join hands. “Rachel, will you please step inside the circle?” I felt in shock and overwhelmed at the thought that such a powerful moment have been planned for me. I felt myself feeling uncomfortable that perhaps the others would think it was unfair that I was called out. But as I looked into the eyes of my tribe I realized that they were all in cahoots. Darnella called the power of God/the Universe to channel through the Sequoia and into my body and commanded the KNOWING of my well-being. There was a moment that was energetically so powerful that I peeked through the cracks in my eyes to see what was happening. I looked around and saw the palms outstretched and facing me of every single member of the Journey to Worthy tribe. I can honestly say I have never felt so loved and so special in my entire life. I can go on and on about the community, the lessons, the wisdom, the support and the light that I’ve been gifted as a part of being in the Journey to Worthy tribe. I can tell you about the leading edge processes that Darnella has downloaded around parallel realities, out-of-body experiences and dimension travel. But, the crux of this entire movement is this: “There was NEVER a moment when I WASN’T worthy.” Thank you Ms. Darnella for allowing God itself to work through you. I love you with all of me.
