About Nick and PathAgape

Who am I and what do I do?

Nick Sweeney, creator of PathAgape

Hi, I am Reverend Nicholas Sweeney (aka Babylove, your cosmic mama bear!), creator of PathAgape, and I welcome you!

I am a spiritual mentor, healer, and counselor (as well as a professional performing artist-actor/singer), with over twenty years of professional experience working with clients.

The word spiritual refers to the process of seeking awareness and understanding of who and what we are beyond our names, our personalities, our egos, our bodies, our thoughts, our feelings, and the circumstances and events of our lives.

Therefore, spirituality refers to a process of gaining ever clearer and deeper self-awareness and self-knowledge.

Most importantly, to grow in our spirituality means to grow in our capacity to love ourselves and others unconditionally.

I use The Science of the Cards (Destiny or Karma Cards) (as taught by Robert Camp), Evolutionary Astrology (as taught by Steven Forrest), The Reiki System of Natural Healing, The Michael Teachings, Unified Mindfullness, and The Artist’s Way by Julia Cameron as tools to help people grow in their spiritual awareness, heal and live more meaningful and fulfilling lives.

What I do in essence is far more simple; I help people learn how to love themselves.

I offer many “doorways” into spiritual awareness and exploration. Here is how you might get the most from our work together.

The simplest way to work with me is to listen to your heart. Look over my services and see what your heart says. All of my services invite you to deepen and expand your self-awareness/spiritual awareness. They aim to support and empower you. So, you can’t go wrong with any of them!

It might be helpful to think about working with me in two ways: one is in a more long-term, spiritual mentoring context and the other is in a more short-term, “dropping-in” now and then for healing, insight, and/or guidance.

Spiritual Mentoring
The heart of this path is creating the time and space to go deep into your own spiritual exploration and validation of spirit, your own spiritual practice and awareness. This work is for when you are ready to make a commitment to your own healing, transformation, and re-orientation to life by bringing your spiritual awareness into your day-to-day life. The core of this work is meditation and the exploration of consciousness (personality and the soul), fear, attachment, non-attachment, truth, love, and beauty. In this work, we also look deeply at creativity, prosperity/abundance consciousness, gratitude, forgiveness, and more. We cover all of this enlightening and empowering territory in a very organic way based on where you are currently in your life and where/how you experience the most challenge, fear, pain, and suffering. We put challenge, fear, pain, and suffering into a higher perspective so that you can understand it and use it to free yourself to BE YOURSELF and enjoy creating your life from a deeply meaningful, loving, and powerful center. In this mentoring flow, any Michael Teachings, Astrological, Destiny Card, and/or or Reiki work that you receive is given greater depth and context as it relates to your spiritual awareness and growth.

Drop-in, Tune in, Reset Work
This work is for when you already feel quite grounded and centered in your spiritual awareness and practice and simply need some guidance and support from time-to-time. Or you might not be too interested in spirituality at all but still have questions and need some answers! You might be stressed and need a helping hand with getting back to your center so that you can more confidently return to the realities of your life. Whatever your need, all of my services will support and guide you back to your center of trust, calm, enthusiasm, and confidence-for enjoying the adventure of the life you are living and creating!

If you’ve read this far, you likely have a much better understanding of who I am and what I do, as well as how I can be of service to you.

Still, if you have any questions about this site or my services, please feel free to reach out to me via my contact page.

And of course, read on for more! I look forward to sharing PathAgape with you.

What is “PathAgape”?

“Agape” refers to our ultimate existence in the embrace of unconditional love.

And unconditional love can be defined as complete inclusion and non-attachment.

Life already loves us. We wake up to this embrace as we heal and learn to love ourselves.

PathAgape is the path we travel when we want to create deep and lasting transformation and healing. It is the pathway to peace and wholeness, knowing the soul, healing the wounds from the past, and creating a brighter and more fulfilling future.

More About Me

PathAgape is the path I walk, a path of striving to understand and implement in my day-to-day life what it truly means to love and be loved unconditionally. 

After all, this is the whole point of seeking spiritually. This is the truth that is shared from the heart of all of the world’s major spiritual traditions-that we are loved unconditionally by the Source. Really getting this truth is the core of the spiritual journey, and this realization, even at the tiniest levels, is a game changer. It allows us to be innocent, as we have been created and to embrace the trial-and-error, experimental and evolutionary learning experience that is Earth School. And we are no longer weighed down by self-hate, self-rejection, self-criticism, negative comparisons to others and the like.

Before Reiki came into my life in 2002, I lived most of my days in a very painful state of self-hate, self-rejection, and self-criticism. I was also lost under the weight of familial and societal pressure to be someone that had no resemblance to who I am at my core. Like many of us, I felt like I was a hamster on a wheel, running, running, running to get somewhere but never arriving and never feeling fulfilled. And like many of us, I wanted to escape all the pain that this way of living caused by losing myself in a relationship or in the fantasies of escaping life on the physical plane through spiritual transcendence.

During my first Reiki initiation, I glimpsed my soul and its unconditionally loved and loving reality. Once glimpsed, I had to have more and understand more. Although I had already been exploring Eastern spiritual traditions and meditation, as well as studying Astrology and intuitive paths like the Tarot for years before Reiki came into my life, I had not actually glimpsed my soul. Reiki put me firmly on my authentic path of seeking and finding, which lead me to channeled sources of insight and information such as Abraham-Hicks, Lazaris, and Michael.

It was Michaels’ teaching that gave me a key and showed me the doorway to understanding my life in a radically compassionate and empowered way. I walked through that door and found myself at peace and at home in my own skin.

For as long as I can remember, I have felt blessed and in awe of life, in spite of having experienced physical and emotional abuse as a child. And I have always wanted to share that experience of feeling blessed and in awe of life with others.

My evolutionary journey has been about discovering the truth of who I am versus who I was taught to be, learning how to heal myself and how to experience my own soul essence so that I can then truly support others in healing and making that connection for themselves.

PathAgape represents where I am now on my journey, and I use this vehicle to share all that I have learned so far. And when I say so far, I am referring to my entire grand cycle incarnating here in Earth School…for Michael has taught me that when you begin to manifest your true soul age and essence, you have intuitive access to all that your soul has learned during its physical plane journey throughout all of its incarnations. And of course, I am still learning.

I love Evolutionary Astrology, The Reiki System of Natural Healing and The Michael Teachings. I share these teachings and tools with you because they have helped me and continue to help me come home to and comprehend my true self.

I would say that the following sums up my understanding and intent with PathAgape:

When you get to know and love your personality/ego, then you get to know and love your soul, and when you get to know and love your soul, then you get to know and love your personality/ego.

There is no true division. All is one.

My Professional Background

I am an inspired Evolutionary Astrologer, Reiki Master-Teacher, and Michael Channel. I am dedicated to teaching others how to connect to their own truths through grounded and practical exploration of spirituality and healing and illuminating the extraordinary in the ordinary.

My passion to understand and heal myself has lead to me studying four different Reiki lineages based in Eastern and Western philosophy and practice, and becoming a Reiki Master in three of them: Usui Shiki Ryoho (2006), Reiki Jin Kei Do (2007), Gendai Reiki-ho (2008) and Reiki Tummo (2012).

My love for Reiki began in 2002, when a friend introduced me to it and it sparked my curiosity. After this initial introduction to this spiritual healing practice, I later trained with the late Margaret Ann Case of the former Reiki Arts Continuum. I completed her 450hr Reiki Master/Spiritual Healing/Spiritual Counseling Certification Program, her 120hr Teacher Training Program (2005-2007), as well as 3yrs of Mentoring and Co-teaching Reiki I and Reiki II classes at the New York Open Center (2006-2009). During this time of rigorous study, healing and growth, as a part of my spiritual healing and counseling certification requirements, I was ordained as a Priest in the Order of Melchizedek (Sanctuary of the Beloved).

I created my private spiritual healing and counseling practice under the name of Phoenix Wisdom Healing (2006), which later became PathAgape (2014).

As a student of Astrology for almost 30 years, I have professional certification in Medieval and Modern Astrology through the Academy of Predictive Astrology (London) and the National Council for Geocosmic Research. In 2017, I began studying with the internationally renowned Evolutionary Astrologer, Steven Forrest and have professional certification within his school of Evolutionary Astrology. I have been practicing Astrology professionally for 13 years.

In 2012 and 2013, I worked as a Professional Intuitive Guide at The Crystal Matrix (Los Angeles), integrating my 15 years of studying the intuitive arts, psychic development, and the Tarot.

I have a Bachelor of Arts in Theater from Oberlin College and a Master of Fine Arts in Acting from the American Conservatory Theater.

Originally from Nashville, TN, I currently reside in Boulevard, CA (San Diego County).
