Most of my life was spent hiding and burying my own heart. I kept trying to be something and someone I wasn't. It was awful! I led myself down a very dark path into depression, pill addiction, toxic and abusive relationships, and a general hatred for self. I knew something had to change, but I didn't know how to go about it or where to even start. I knew I wanted to live life; I was so tired of just surviving. So with a whole lot of Mom's encouragement, I decided I was going to change that...I decided I was going to love myself unconditionally and live my life.
There was a lot to process and even more to heal. I had much to learn, practice, and to let go of. In this, I started to get back into spirituality, but it was vey slow. I had some deep religious wounding that kept me guarded and afraid of falling into any sort of dogma. I tended to isolate because the idea of spiritual groups just freaked me out.
In my isolated state of seeking my own healing I found oracle cards. They became one of my favorite resources for my learning, growing, and healing journey. I began to journal my card readings, while allowing myself to think about things differently, and question everything - my beliefs, my attitudes, my behaviors, my whole way of being.
Through my daily practice with cards and journaling, I stopped seeing myself through eyes of contempt and judgment. It was in this space that I finally saw a part of me that was naturally empathetic toward others; who sought to encourage and support them in their challenges, and who would offer to hold their hand through the darkness. I wanted to nurture that part of me. I wanted to bring this part of me out into the world.
So I chose a new life direction. I was ready to leave behind a long career in the environmental and safety world because I was miserable. So, I started to get my various coaching certifications to head in that new direction.
I was ready to live life and stop just surviving it, and I wanted to help others do the same.
After two coaching certifications down, I still felt like I hadn't quite found "it", though. I was feeling very discouraged. Then I found Denise Linn's Soul Coaching Oracle Card certification course. I LIT UP inside! I was like YES! This is IT! THIS is my thing!
So I did my thing!
It truly takes a Rebel Heart to unleash the chains and shackles, and step out of the cages and boxes that keep you "surviving" life.
It's the Rebel Heart that says "I choose to love, to live, and to be what I choose to be," and then rise up, brush off, heal, grow, evolve, transform, and LIVE life!
"The Rebel Heart lives by its own compass with its true north set towards unconditional love."
I offer you authenticity, honesty, and integrity of heart.
I offer you a hand as you walk through the shadows of your own heart; a beacon of light in the darkness when no other light appears to exist.
I offer you encouragement through Spirit, who freely gives an unconditional love that brings healing to any wound.
I offer you empathy, as I have known the depths of pain, despair, and darkness.
I offer you guidance as you learn your truths and how to live them in your day-to-day life, and through the challenges - and the victories - you face in becoming your highest self.
Above all, I offer unconditional love and a safe space for you on your journey.
So much Rebel Heart love to you! <3
