Seven years ago, I realized that I had changed and not in a good way.
I was bitter, angry, cold, distant and removed although I tried not to be.
I felt happy and socially interactive on Facebook talking and
posting a daily "good morning" message.
The moment of truth came when my daughter returned home from
college and asked me if I knew how unhappy I was.
Of course, I tried to deny it but it was the truth and
I knew I couldn't continue living (or actually not living) like this
and had to make some tough decisions.
From all the "hats" I had worn for so many years, I had lost who I was.
Some called what I was experiencing the "empty nest" syndrome or a "mid-life crisis".
It was neither.......I AWAKENED!
I began the process of "self-rediscovery" and made changes in my life.
Changes can be minor or major. It is a continuous learning process.
My exploration of spirituality and metaphysics began by reading books on topics of interest to me, listening to what like-minded others had to say and a lot of
meditation then applying what resonated as truth to my life.
I gained a better understanding of myself and the worlds around me.
My need to move furniture around even as a kid.
I learned that energy becomes stagnant and by moving the furniture
around the energy flow resumes.
My need to have objects even and in their place.
I learned that this behavior is due to my need to keep balance.
My perception of life and death changed also.
Listening to and following the Divine guidance received,
I studied energy healing and became certified in "G" healing.
I began teaching workshops about the knowledge I had. It was during this time that I became an ordained minister/spiritual counselor, providing one to one spiritual guidance.
I had also started writing poetry which led to my first book,
"Enlighten & Inspire Me" then to the second one, "Enlighten Me: Touched by the Light".
Stepping out of my comfort zone, I accepted an invitation to speak at a local
psychic fair then another and my spiritual speaking career began.
I studied energy healing called Reiki becoming a Reiki Master Practitioner.
By making necessary adjustments/changes
and following the Divine Guidance given to me,
HERE I AM....I AM ME!
