i was always different, and i knew it.
there was a certain level of comfort in believing that truth for so long. yet, i see by that being the foundation for the path that led me to this very moment in time, it may have also triggered the perfection i acquired in isolating myself from human interaction. don’t get me wrong – i grew up in the public eye, in a small town where two rivers meet, and had much social interaction for most of my life. what i am speaking of here is the kind of interaction where you really allow another to see you for who it is that you are. i also understand that in not fully knowing who i was, how then could i present that to the world?
so, i hid.
then one day, i was guided to change. i went deep within to a place where i felt even more comfortable, in nature along the rivers edge. i began to discover the many facets of Self and embraced the teachings that nature taught me. many moons were spent where the rivers meet, and unbeknownst to me at the time, would eventually one day hold the space where i would be married.
i began to come into my own as a healer. becoming certified in a multitude of practices including; reiki, hypnotherapy, angel card reading, and Ayurvedic tongue analysis. studying herbal medicine, taking classes in the metaphysical arts, and reading about traditional healing practices became my life – and i was going to save the world.
that is the part of the journey where i learned it was quite the opposite. i was not going to save the world, but rather i needed to save myself.
well, for some time i have been in search of that very answer, and within the last year have been guided onto a more conscious path of self healing. as one of my deeply regarded teachers says, “you can’t take someone to a place you haven’t been.”
the last year has lead me on a path of reconnecting with my self + nature. it has been a process of acknowledging, accepting, releasing, letting go and repeating that pattern all over again. each layer comes as it needs to be healed, and at the level it can be met. revisiting places both within myself and nature that i once knew as a child, those of which have now seen me come into my own as a woman – who i am now – has been part of the process as well.
who am i?
a question that has been with me for as long as i can remember. last month for the first time i walked a labyrinth, and in doing so with that single question in my mind and heart, i received the answer. LOVE.
I AM LOVE.
it is that simple. the quest, the journey, the path all lead back to the core essence of who we are in life – if we so choose to allow.
with my heart and mind in alignment with my path, i invite you to travel with me on this journey of Self discovery and Self realization. for we are here to help each other heal, learn, and grow. come into our own. become we who are meant to be in this life, and take care of Mother Earth.
remember who we are
