"It's not about the title of your job.
It's about the lives you touch doing it."
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 I was allowing the energy to flow.
My need to have objects even and in their place.
I learned that this behavior is due to my need to keep balance in my life.
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.
By making necessary adjustments/changes
and following the Divine Guidance given to me,
HERE I AM....I AM ME!

I was raised with the understanding that God didn't care if I went to church or not as long as I believed.
My mom's philosophy was my introduction to spirituality although I didn't know it at the time. My aunt went to church so I would occasionally go with her. I became interested in religious philosophy and I needed to explore it so
I chose to attend church regularly becoming an active member throughout my teenage years.
If I wasn't at home or school, I was involved in something at church.
On my 14th birthday, my grandmother passed away. We were very close.
I spent a lot of time wondering why this had happened.
Not long afterwards, my mom took me to my first reading.
To this day, I only remember two things that I was told during it.
1) You are a healer
2) Your grandmother is your guardian angel
I wasn't exactly sure what the first statement meant but knew exactly what the second one did and listened to what he said.
He told me that she was a light over my right shoulder and of course I looked but didn't see it.
I felt comfort and security knowing that she was with me, watching over me.
I didn't have a clue about what the phrase "you are a healer" meant.
A healer was a doctor or Jesus and I was neither.
Then I saw the movie "Resurrection" with Ellen Burstyn a short time later.
You know that moment when a light bulb comes on above your head? This was mine.
Needless to say, I tried to heal everything.
As with a lot of things, growing up and life in general put healing on the back burner, so I thought.
Looking back at my life, I have always been a practicing healer in one form or another....
physical, emotional, spiritual, psychological...
I just didn't look at it like that.
