The scariest thing I've ever done...
Here goes nothing.
And I'm a little scared...
Here is the story and my truth I've kept hidden for too long...
January 8th, 2014 started like every other day. I woke up with the dawn, walked downstairs, poured myself a cup of coffee, sat myself on the couch, and opened my journal to write. And then something it would take almost two years to understand happened. I had a spiritual awakening called Kundalini.
Let me back up…30 years. I grew up in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, surrounded by evergreen trees and refreshing rain (and plenty of coffee). I am the youngest of three and the only daughter. My parents, now married for 45 years, were and still are amazing parents. They surrounded us with so much love, tradition, books, music, and the encouragement to ‘follow our bliss’.
We were also atheist. We prided ourselves on knowledge, logic, and getting to the simple truth of life.
When it felt like Source cracked me open on that January day I was a lot confused. Questions began to pour out of my pen I had never contemplated or given much thought to. Questions like, “What is consciousness? Are we infinite?” You can see this entry in the photo above.
I would spend the next two years in search of answers. What happened to me? What did I miss? Where do I come from? Why am I here? Is there a God? What is Source? How do I feel about religion? What is spirituality? What are the mystics telling us? What is my role in all of this?
I read every text I could get my hands on. I asked teachers, leaders, healers, intuitive’s, and mentors these questions. I wrote hundreds of pages in my journal. And slowly the answers began to flood from me. I knew what I believed…but I was terrified to say it.
So I hid.
I didn’t talk about my awakening with many.
I didn’t write about it or share it.
I didn't work with it or invite it into my sessions.
But everyday from then on I was walking around literally in ‘awe’ of life and its purpose.
I’ve known since that day that I am meant to be a Spiritual Leader and Teacher. A healer and a guide. I am meant to use my intuitive gifts to hold space for others and help themheal.
Almost two years later and I am ready to share this…
I was sent here by Source to help the world wake up from within. To remember that we are one, we are love, and we are incredible beings.
This is ‘the work’. This is my calling. I’ve tried being a coach and a counselor. I’ve tried to fit my work in a more comfortable box with different niches, markets, and websites. The more I squeezed in there the more it hurt.
This is the scariest thing I’ve ever done. And yet I know with my entire being that I am finally home.
