SO, HOW CAN I RELATE TO WHAT YOU’RE GOING THROUGH —AND OFFER WHAT YOU NEED?

My story is full of stepping stones—on the surface, my life appears pretty amazing--from being a thrill-seeking trapeze artist as a teen, and later, to building resilience in challenging workplaces in public and private sectors and wild travel to 70 countries.  Yet, its not all rosey...

THERE WAS THIS INCONGRUENCE...

I’ve long had strong & inspiring female role models and known inside women could realize any dream or vision . But, this belief was not always aligned with my experience. I learned pretending for great appearances sometimes hid unconscious insecurities.

DISCONNECT WAS ALSO PRESENT IN MY PRIVATE LIFE

  • I didn’t date until "late" because I was too busy . . . but I secretly worried I was unlovable.

  • I aimed to love my body (and its changed a lot) . . . but I secretly struggled in emotional turmoil

  • I wanted to believe I help others out of kindness . . . but being a "yes-person," people-pleasing and getting entangled in codependence has taught me loads about my self-worth.

WHAT TRIGGERED A SHIFT IN MY AWARENESS?

Below are some highlights:

  • 10 years as host, co-host and guest on Blog Talk Radio (Metaphysics & Awareness)

  • Extensive dream analysis & interpretation for self & others

  • Insight gained through yoga teacher training, mindful meditation & martial arts

  • Work on the conventional and "the unconventional"

  • Losing what I thought important & discovering what truly is

  • An unsolved, personal mystery led me to Breathwork, Soul work and healing trauma 

  • My awakened synesthesia (merging of the senses) & creating almost 1000 paintings 

  • Deepening spiritual practices 

  • so much more...

My Mission

My mission is to support you to expand consciousness,  to be the predominant conscious creative force in your life.  I guide mental, physical, emotional purification processes to align with Highest Self.  Step out of the shackles of conditioning and make serious change light-hearted and fun.

Revelations

Direct experience shows me what happens inside as we shift from beliefs to awareness.

In essence, my feelings now guide my actions. I take advantage of neuroplasticity (our brains’ ability to change neural patterns) to create the feelings of confidence, worth, and independence that I realize we all have access to at will.

 

Life flows more smoothly.  I let go of what insults my soul and I share tools to guide others in their own liberation. (And watch self-criticism, anxiety, guilt, and shame fall away.)
