How It All Began
In the year 2001, I experienced an awakening of consciousness; a spontaneous shift in perception while reading "Friendship with God" by Neale Donald Walsch. That powerful experience freed me from the boundaries of my former beliefs, allowing me to see from a new perspective. It opened my eyes to a new view of the world and my purpose in it. Later, in 2015 the book, Love Yourself Lightly: A Wisdom Guide to Self-Love came through me as a channeled personal-teaching for the benefit of all who seek to know the truth of who we are and why we are here.
I was born and raised in the Santa Cruz Mountains of California. Early in my childhood, I went to twelve schools while my parents traveled all over the United States for work. From the age of two, my family was indoctrinated into a cult-like church, based in southern California that focused on a pending apocalypse, led by a self-professed prophet. Even though the church had been an international phenomenon at the time, corruption eventually caused it to dissolve and split into many separate factions.
In my thirties, I began to seek freedom from the fear-based control of the church. Eager for a more palpable relationship with God, I experimented by joining several different Christian denominations. Fatigued by the search for meaning in religious institutions, I stopped looking outside myself, finding peace within.
During this powerful time of self-reflection, I asked, in meditation, for validation of spiritual communication that I could understand clearly. Soon after, I awakened to a vision, clearly spelled out in my mind's eye, with the name of a spirit guide. Soon, with focus and practice, a clear connection was established and the teachings began through Automatic Writing. Personal healing, family relationships, deceased loved ones, and the spirit world were all topics of discussion with my Spirit Guide. I discovered that the teaching of self-love is of the greatest importance in my evolution of consciousness. Spirit has, repeatedly, encouraged the practice of quieting the mind. It is only possible to understand what self-love is when the mind is quiet.
Self-love is knowing that we are connected to the source of all creation. We are the manifestations of creation as well as co-creators. This knowledge makes navigating the challenges of life on Earth much easier to understand. It is about taking full responsibility for life while surrendering to a balance between the body, mind, and spirit.
I learned that all of the experiences and skills we develop throughout our lifetimes help us to become who we need to be when we decide to be of service. When I made a decision to be in service, all sorts of synchronicities began to occur. The means by which I could receive the training I desired became available. The people who seek my help find me and life gets supplemented with all that is needed, when it is needed.
We live in our bodies in order to have creative experiences. Our body is the tool by which we create and through which the Source of Consciousness (The Creator) experiences. Each of us is a beacon of light and it is our mission to shine our light brightly by using our talents and gifts. But, this is also a school, where, through our challenges we grow, and without them, we know nothing of joy.
As a teacher of presence, I hold this moment as the only moment of importance and where all is well and complete.
