There are lots of things I could tell you about myself: among them that I have a PhD in clinical psychology, and that I am a trained life coach. That I live in the SF Bay Area, am married to a wonderful man, have a whip-smart daughter, a hilarious dog, and an acrobatic hamster. Or that I love textiles of any kind, and like to sew, knit, and crochet. That I have a passion for playing with tarot and oracle cards. And that, more recently, I’ve become immersed in intuitive painting, and in taking pictures of beautiful things and posting them on Instagram.
But here is what you really need to know about me:
I’m still on my journey:
I am on a journey, an internal journey towards myself, my Essence, my Soul. In the darker moments I feel a bit like Odysseus, because sometimes the journey feels long, perilous, and full of monsters and demons. These monsters and demons are my own creations – fear, self-doubt, my inner critic (he’s a mean one!) – created to protect me from taking risks and failing.
So, I must arm myself on this journey, and I’ve found that the most useful, most effective weapons for fighting the monsters and demons were self-love and extreme self-care. Only these are successful in the fight, because after all, the monsters and demons are a part of me too and they melt under an assault of gentleness and compassion. And when they melt, and I can really connect with myself and my soul, I can feel peace, acceptance, trust, and the Divine inside of me.
I have a support team:
Another key to the success of my ongoing journey: I have lots and lots of help. Besides family members who love and support me on the path I have chosen, I have an incredible team who help keep me moving along – coaches, intuitive creative guides, a website fairy. I belong to circles of women who are dedicated to similar journeys. And I rely on an ever-growing group of Divine Guides, ancestors, and other Spirit presences that shine the light in the darkness when I feel I’ve lost my way. All of these amazing helpers constantly remind me that I have all I need inside of me, and if I truly trust my inner voice I will find my way forward.
