I grew up in a tiny mountain hippie town. A shy, yet popular, girl.
I did all that I was supposed to. I was class president. Prom queen. Went to college and graduated with a degree in advertising. Worked at a dot-com. Partied with friends. Fell in love.
We ran away to the mountains together and started our own graphic design and marketing business. It grew and grew. We moved back to the city to be closer to our clients. We bought a condo in a trendy neighborhood near downtown.
From the outside, it appeared I had it all.
On the inside, I was numb.
I was tired. Like really, really tired. I got sick a lot. I made excuses for my unhappiness. I stressed about our business, our bills, our pets. Way too much.
My boyfriend told me I would never be able to have kids. He said my body would never be able to handle it. I believed him.
Inspiration was no where to be found.
What was going on? I felt completely disconnected. It was like I was watching myself from outside my body.
Our puppy died of a rare auto-immune disease. This event kicked me into gear. I went on a journey to find healing. I wanted to rediscover joy.
I became a seeker. I met with natural minded doctors. Explored energy healing. Attended conferences on science and spirituality. Researched degrees in transpersonal counseling.
Then, I stepped onto a path that led me to a class called How To Heal Yourself. Using guided meditation it gave me a tool-set to become aware of myself. I discovered how much I was holding onto. Other people's feelings. Problems that weren't mine. Issues from my childhood. I learned how to let it ALL GO.
I learned how to tune-into my intuition in conjunction with meditation to heal myself and take charge of my life.
My relationship ended. We blessed each other to journey our separate ways. I began intentionally taking steps and conspiring with the universe to find my joy. I was offered a job in Santa Fe, NM working in an afterschool program with kids.
I picked up and moved with 10 days notice. I felt free, happy and destined for the first time in a very long time.
I moved to Santa Fe, NM in 2006. I was stepping into a new time in my life, armed with basic meditation tools that were helping me to feel better than I had in years. I was working with children, something I'd been wanting for years.
I felt so free and in more in control of my life. After about two months there, a synchronistic chain of events led me to a program, where I began a year long Self-Healing Clairvoyant Training.
I learned deep meditation and self-healing tools that allowed me to tap into my intuition and begin to heal myself on a very deep level.
As I moved through the program, and the layers began to peel away I experienced a profound healing crisis.
What goes in, must come out. And I was literally healing every cell in my body.
It was scary as I was in the middle of it, but once I realized what was happening I was able to embrace it and that allowed the healing process to continue. Woohoo!
In 2007, I found myself pregnant and stepping onto a whole new journey. I was going to be a single mom and it was somewhat frightening. Yet, I knew with every ounce of my being that this was meant to be.
I rocked that pregnancy with ease and grace and gave birth to the most amazing little boy.
The journey of single motherhood was empowering and helped me to realize how strong I truly am. I am thankful that I had my intuitive meditation techniques with me every step of the way.
I took a teacher's training and became a spiritual minister.
These programs took me to very deep places in connection to myself, and the relationship between the physical and the spiritual.
There was a saying on the wall at the center where I trained: "As you heal the spirit, the spirit heals the body," and the truth of this was being shown to me in the most beautiful and profound ways.
I was making conscious choices and actually taking the steps that allowed my spirit to soar, and helped my body to thrive.
I tapped into my natural gifts and my love for being a guide in others' healing journeys.
Eventually, I was led back to Colorado to re-connect with my roots. My family.
I fell in love again, and my family has grown, giving birth to a beautiful daughter in 2012.
