There is a difference between a move and a God move. Call it destiny, call it fate or call it the soul’s purpose: untold mysteries deep within the inner being of us all, stored in the deepest part of ourselves; yearning to be discovered only when the timing is right. The key was in the lock. More simply, sometimes things choose us, we don’t choose them. We have an unexplained calling.
Walking through my fears, my losses and my hardships – they are the gifts that have taught me well. My sustainable strong roots continued growing and expanding in awareness and understanding over the years. I became seasoned with greater knowledge and maturity gave me much wisdom. Experience is the real professor. Our most valuable classroom: life.
A degree from the University of Washington in Speech-communication was only the beginning. My lifelong commitment to learning and reading guided me to worlds of nutrition, human nature, psychology, esoteric studies and personal transformation. Along the way, each have added much to my journey – including my holistic health coaching practice and pending grief counseling certification. Just like Dorothy in the Land of Oz, the yellow brick road brings great insight and wisdom. Each step and experience was necessary for Dorothy’s growth and expansion; so too was mine.
Unbeknown to me, this journey began itself over 30 years ago with the purchase of the Elizabeth Kubler-Ross books on death and dying, and early hospice work. Like a moth to a flame I was guided to The Dying to Live Again Foundation in South Florida. My relationship to this organization lasted 10 years – professionally, and as a close personal friend to Steve and Sally Baldwin, until – like all cycles in life – it closed suddenly with Sally’s passing. My participation in their Mother-Child retreat in 2009, given to a select group of women who had lost children, demonstrated to me miracles can happen before our very eyes. Revelations in astrology have further brought more clarity to my purpose: all pieces of a puzzle which have slowly revealed themselves like the most beautiful red flower unfolding, blooming in all its color, perfection, divinity, and might I add symbolism, before me.
And, so with the potentials laid and the conception complete so many years and lifetimes ago, Soul to Soul was born in 2014, a seven (7) year in numerology meaning Divinity – Wholeness – Perfection – Learning Life.
My soul’s purpose, part and mission in this life is to teach others to understand what is difficult. It is to help our souls – our very real and sometimes painful human aspect – to let go and see the eternal light expanding our thought, to examine new beliefs and to break free from old conditions which hold us in bondage like rusty chains around our ankles or wrists. We must unlearn what we thought we knew; being flexible and open to explore new paradigms and new worlds which exist as Truth deep within innate selves; a knowing there is something more. We must have the courage to get in touch and know new-found awareness of our spiritual divine selves – that “other piece” – disregarded in so many ways as unimportant, or put on like a coat only to be shed quickly when it gets too warm.
Soul to Soul is about freedom and authenticity. It is about discovering joy. It is about letting go. This retreat is a purpose of love. This is a purpose of compassion. This is a purpose of inspiration – from spirit – for a few minutes touching the hand of God and realizing we are much bigger than we could possibly imagine. It’s about awareness and understanding and healing. I am the catalyst for your healing. You are now ready to be healed from difficult losses, and begin your personal journey, to “What’s next.”
We are ready for you. When the student is ready, the teacher appears. Please read more about the retreat and sign up today– space is limited. Freedom is a state of mind.
Love and light,
