My Life – Full Circle

My Life – Full Circle

Several years ago, I went to visit a woman who had lost her husband very unexpectedly at forty-two years old. I was in awe when I saw that she had so much energy in her body. Most people I had witnessed in my life who had experienced the physical death of a loved one would have a grayish color about them, yet she was so vibrant and light. She told me about a visit she had had with a shaman who had done soul retrieval on her by leading her through a deep meditation and retrieving aspects of her life when she was fragmented, weary, and losing her vibrancy; this process helped her retrieve her energy. I was amazed. In just the way life works, I thought I was being there for her when in reality she was being there for me. I thought I was spending my time giving to her when in truth she was giving to me. I was waking up.

I did not call the shaman she had consulted, nor did I immediately purchase the book she suggested: Soul Retrieval by Sandra Ingerman. If you had known me then, you would realize that this hesitation was in itself a modern-day miracle. Up to this point I had lived my life by the paradigm that something was missing, so when the woman told me about something I did not have, the me of the past would have wanted it right away. In retrospect, I realize I was starting to awaken to my natural self, not pushing a new direction in my life but allowing it to unfold. This was a way of being that I had forgotten up until then. This was the beginning of being reborn into the me I was born to be: the healer and the listener of knowing when to do and knowing when to be.

I prayed to my Creator that, if my soul needed to be retrieved, to provide me with the means and way in which this could be possible. I called this experience into my being. I prayed it into my existence. I also eventually bought Soul Retrieval and absolutely could not put it down once I started to read it. It was bringing me back to life. I had a new map, a new road on which I felt the light was shining again to bring me back home to finding me.

Update: I was recently contacted by Sandra Ingerman’s publicist to be on my radio show “The Intentional Spirit”. We have never met and by divine appointment, I will have the opportunity to let her know the impact she’s has had on my life.

Truly honored and truly blessed!

Perhaps life is perfectly designed to be a mystery?

Perhaps life is perfectly designed to be a mystery so we can allow the mystery to be perfect by design. Deep, right? But think about it: The mystery is a mystery for a reason. I remember talking to a student who was asking me why he could not know in advance that his prayer was…

Whole Self

Whole Self

When we live from a place of wholeness, then we are not experiencing life through the eyes of lack. Therefore, we can give freely of our time, our talent, and our love, for we know that the more we give, the more we will have to give. When we live from a place of wholeness,…

How can words convey the depth and sweetness of unconditional love, the soul’s joy in coming home to God, the stunning revelation that despite all your errors, you are forgiven?

What Does Your Mirror Reflect?

What Does Your Mirror Reflect?

I have been doing christening ceremonies for the past twenty-three years, and each time I invite everyone from the immediate “village,” who are there to support the child to come into a circle. I always ask, “What do you wish and pray for with this child?” The answers come quickly: to live his dreams, to…
