staying balanced in a moving world:
happiness and your personal power
ever since i was a little girl, i asked questions and had ongoing curiosity about the spirit and nature that animates us, where it comes from, where it goes when we die, what drives our choices? why are some of us happy? why are some of us miserable? what factors in our birth, rearing and culture bring some of us to fulfillment, while others of us come to the end of our lives disappointed, with our songs unsung?
i always knew we were part of something bigger, deeper, richer than our temporal and temporary existence. an existence bigger than the limits of culture, family or religion of birth. i felt it in the “who” of who i was. i had no doubt and i wanted to know more. i didn’t know at the time that i was asking about consciousness and intention.
as i grew and matured, i knew that this consciousness and intention – this love – were our foundation, the ground of our being; it was the essence of all of life. i knew love – god – is what envelops us, is expressed through us, is the oneness us; there is no separation. we might be differentiated, but we’re never separated. we are an expression of the oneness of all that is.
i began to see my history and my potential in a very different light. the hard lines around what i was taught as right or wrong began to blur; my discernment and compassion got clearer, took new roots and began to show me where i needed to broaden my view. i learned more about forgiveness, connectivity, support. i learned about integrity, honor and patience at the center of intention. i learned about higher purpose, our intended responsibility to each other and to ourselves. i learned about personal power.
while i was always an informal student of philosophies, religions and physics, i decided to formalize my education and received my ministerial bachelor’s degree in metaphysical spirituality from the american institute of holistic theology in 2014. i went on to receive my master’s in metaphysics in 2016. this curriculum broadened and focused my education and included texts such as jung and the divine, a course in miracles, the nag hammadi scriptures, journeys into emptiness, and your soul’s compass all of which form the foundation for my counseling, guidance, and presentation frameworks. while all this formal and informal education answers some questions, it also helps me get comfortable with others. one thing i have learned is that at the heart of the world’s great successful wisdom and cultural traditions is the same message: live in harmony with each other and nature, and you live the peace of god.
i know as conscious beings, we allow this harmony and peace to reveal itself naturally only when we live in and support an environment of freedom, openness, non-judgmental support and forgiveness for ourselves and each other. as i learn more about this allowance, i can see intention and the law of attraction at work; i can see love at work. i know as we create our circumstances and live our choices, the universe welcomes our desires, bringing like-minded intentions together for co-creation through the law of attraction allowing who we are as the oneness of all things to expand.
my story is one of learning who i am and coming to my peace and my wholeness. respecting an overwhelming need to help others navigate their stories, learn who they are and find their peace as well has become my mission.
i continue to add content to my website. i hope you’ll find reasons to visit often.
much love to all,
