My earliest recollection of my own awakening occurred in 1987, when at a particularly low point in my life, I asked out loud, “Is this all there is?”
Over the next 30 years, there has been a whirlwind of energy and synchronicity that introduced me to many teachers in various forms who sparked my own authentic, source energy self. On this journey, there have been very hard challenges and lessons to work through as well as many profound moments. I am grateful for all of it, for everyone and everything that has contributed and continues to contribute to the awakening process, to new paradigm.
I have been stretched and expanded, intentionally live my values and integrate them and what I learn into how I live my life.
I am determined and committed to this process of waking up, to authenticity, to remembering who I am as source energy, as unconditional love, to what I know, where I came from, and my purpose for being here right now in fulfilling my commitment to assist with the awakening of an expanded humanity and consciousness resulting in a new, regenerative earth and culture.
