Camaradelores studied and obtained degrees in education fields, and the education she most values is that gained from the ‘university of life’. Her life is a reflection of ‘other’ life experiences not typically recognized as modes of learning that continue to fuel and further her journey’s growth. These experiences are what she shares in her educational journey to support others on their life’s path.
The name on my birth certificate bears the name Barbara Delores Knight. The name Camara was given to me through a divination (naming) ceremony. It means one who teaches through experience.
My friend Sophia put my divined name and middle name together; I loved it and have
called myself camaradelores
After my college training, and then practicing for two years in the classroom, I dropped out. Teaching I told myself was not for me. The teaching about teaching was not adding up to the practice in the classroom.
A teacher had to teach plus do the job of the custodial worker, nurse, parent, secretary, paraprofessional, you name it.
I was disappointed! I left for
Los Angeles to start me a new career in something less taxing and straight forward.
It didn’t happen. I was brought right back to home base a year later, where I was made to learn about myself and all the lessons that accompany self-growth. It could have been any other profession, but teaching was the means through which my journeying would take place.
My university degrees and post graduate studies included early childhood, elementary education and educational leadership development. Fast forward to 2018, and my educational pursuits have landed me the task of teaching about my own ‘wellness’ walk, supporting and mentoring others as a wellness lifestyle coach to encourage and inspire their personal growth and empowerment.

A Personal Affirmation
I choose to be a part of the ‘global connection’ and I do hereby consent to the healing and harmonizing of this planet and all forms of life hereon.
I shall begin this day to radiate the infinite spirit I AM in truth to this world. I open my heart and I let Divine Love pour out to one and all, transmuting every negative situation and experience within the range of my consciousness.
I forgive everyone, including myself. Forgive the past and I close the door. From this moment on, I shall dedicate my life to turning within and seeking, finding, and knowing the only Presence, the only Power, the only cause, and the only Activity of my eternal life.
and I place my faith in the Presence of God within as my Spirit, my Substance, my Supply and my Support
I know that as I lift up my consciousness, I will be doing my part to cancel out the error of the race mind, heal the sense of separation and restore the world to sanity.
With love in my heart, the thrill of victory in my mind and the joyous words on my lips, I agree to be a part of the worldwide group that will meet in spirit to release Light, Love, and Spiritual Energy in the Healing Meditation for Planet Earth.
