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, and where it goes when we die. 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 the answers to these and other questions showed us to be 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. I wanted to know more. I didn’t know at the time that I was asking about Consciousness and Intention. I was asking about Love.
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 life. This knowingness was at the core of my being, at the core of my heart. I knew Love – God – is what connected us to each other, made us the living embodiment of the Oneness of all things. I knew the Intention of our existence was Love, Love for each other, Love for ourselves. I knew it then; I know it now.
As I began to learn more about Intention in the Universe – the force driving All That Is – and how it unfolds in the choices we make as evolving, expanding human beings, I began to see my history and my potential in a very different light. The hard lines around my sense of right and wrong began to blur; the roots of my discernment and conditional compassion got clearer, and I saw where I needed to broaden my view. I learned more about forgiveness, connectivity, support. I learned about integrity, honor and patience. I learned about higher purpose, our Intended responsibility to each other and Personal Power. I learned about me as an individuation of the Love of All That Is.
I became an informal student of philosophies, religions and physics, and began to see a wholeness through a layperson’s eyes. My studies of ancient wisdom and contemporary philosophies included the writings and texts of Deepak Chopra, Gregg Braden, Peter Russell, Joan Borysenko and others. I have formalized my education by receiving a Ministerial Bachelor’s Degree in Metaphysical Spirituality from the American Institute of Holistic Theology in 2014, and received my Master’s in Metaphysics in 2016. This curriculum broadens my foundation of education to include texts such as Jung and the Divine, A Course in Miracles, The Healing Path of Prayer, The Nag Hammadi Library and The Mandala, all of which form my mentoring, guidance and workshop frameworks. While all this formal and informal education answers some questions, and 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 unfold naturally only when we 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 mirrors our creation, bringing like-minded Intentions together for co-creation, allowing who we are as Love to grow.
My story is one of learning who I am, coming to my peace and my wholeness, and respecting an overwhelming need to help others navigate their stories, learn who they are and find their peace as well. My Mission, therefore, is to learn, share and serve.
I am currently writing a book about how we live in the prisons of our stories, and how we break free. My timeline for this book is publication by spring of 2018, the year of my 70th birthday.
My website is always in a process of updating and renewal. I hope you’ll find reasons to visit often.
Much Love to All,
