What is this about?

Hello and welcome to my blog! My heart is nearly beating out of my chest as I begin to write my first ever blog post! It might seem silly, but I have dreamt of this moment for a very long time. The moment when I get to share the thoughts and ideas that constantly swirl around in my head and the feelings that dance around in my heart. Why don't I share them with my family and friends who surround me daily, you ask? Well, let's just say I've learned that the things I think about don't exactly qualify as casual table talk.

The good news is that I can now own that sentiment with joy. I have spent the majority of my life feeling different, but not really understanding what makes me different. All I knew was that I didn't want to expose my different-ness. I thought if I just stayed quiet and compliant then I could look like I "fit in". Sound familiar? I know I'm not alone in this! The point is, we are ALL different in our own ways and we should feel safe and eager to share our uniqueness with each other.

As I described in "my story" section of the website, I woke up one day feeling as if God had hit me over the head with a baseball bat and said "wake up!". I remember the day well. I had gotten up before my children went to school and I went to work to go on an exercise walk with my neighbor friend. I was in the thick of a busy life. I had all the things that created a blessed life. But, this was the day that I allowed myself to realize that I was NOT living in the truth of who I am at my core.

The year was 2012. My life has changed immensely since that day. Because here's the thing, you can live life not knowing stuff (i.e. ignorance is bliss) but once you know something, you can't really "unknow" it. My thirst for knowledge has not stopped since that day. I developed a ravenous hunger for the truth of who I am and why I even exist in this world. Ultimately, why do any of us exist?

Little did I know that my drive to seek this knowledge would lead me down a winding rabbit hole of various ideas and methods in which other seekers before me have attempted to answer the same questions. I was in my 40's and I was just now learning about personality tests and astrology (in a deep sense), and numerology. I've learned of archetypes and soul purpose. I have discovered some unpublicized ideas about karma and law of attraction.

I consider myself a deeply spiritual person. But, I have discerned that I only used to know spirituality from the basis of indoctrinated religion. Which has been present throughout my life and provided me with a solid and humble foundation. However, my intuition has led me to look further and expand past the confines of the tiny box of what is considered to be acceptable. What I discovered is that we are all divine beings and our potential is infinitely so much more than most of us can even comprehend.

So, in essence, these are the thoughts that drive me. I'm aware that it's deep and a bit off the beaten path! But, just consider the importance of really knowing yourself on a soul level. Not only could it help you live a much more meaningful life with ease and purpose but, it would also allow you to be innately aware that we are not all wired the same. In my humble opinion, the knowledge of our differences creates understanding. Understanding leads to acceptance. Acceptance is a precursor to love. Love is the end all, be all; the very reason for existence.

So, are you ready to learn about YOURself on a deeper level? Are you ready to start living a life of greater purpose? Are you ready to show up as your authentic self? Because, I am ready to help you get started on your quest for authenticity! LET'S GO!
