My spiritual awakening unfolded as it does for many of us: propelled by a very dark night of my soul. At the time, it was terrible. I sometimes felt like I could not breathe. I had no idea how I had gotten to that place. I felt extreme anxiety.
But it turns out that it was just what I needed–and indeed, even what I had asked for.
First, my marriage became untenable. And then, it became heartbreaking. In the face of separation and divorce, I turned to God in a whole new way. And I turned inward in ways I had never done before. I began to lean on faith, and hope, and the God of my understanding. I sought wisdom from the world’s faith traditions. I found yoga in a whole new way–and the practices that yoga teaches, like breathing and centering and quieting the mind, began to lift me, began to be grounding rods in my darkness. I am so thankful for yoga, and yoga teachers, who hold space for healing and opening and awakening. It’s why I also became a yoga teacher through this time.
But the biggest gifts of all came through persistence, through seeking, through connecting inwardly and upward to a higher realm. It is through deep guidance from my angel realm that I cracked open even deeper secrets to who I AM, who I have been, and most importantly, who I am becoming each day on this Earth.
We are always in a process of becoming, you see. And we are not powerless. In fact, we are powerful beyond measure. We are our own creators. But we usually do not know this. We rarely ever hear this.
Through my trials, I reclaimed my power. For me, it came little by little. Small, new awarenesses that led to greater discoveries of self. One breath at a time. One meditation at a time. One healing at a time.
And along the way, I learned that I have tremendous healing abilities. I learned that I was healing my own path, and I began to share new truths and healing with others. And slowly, I found great strength and abilities in working with others, as well. And I found a love of sharing what I find works, what I find as Truth.
My angel guides are always by my side. They show me how to be like them. They teach me compassion in a world that needs it so. They teach me how to see myself the way they see me. They guide me in working with my family and my clients. They show me that we are always on a journey of evolving, if we want to, and they show me how magical it can be to surrender to the light inside of me that connects with the light all around, and the light in others.
I would not trade my dark nights for anything. They propelled me to BE who I am today. And I did not ever for a moment do it alone. Instead I found help in the most unexpected places, through friends, mentors, and angels. I know that’s a strange one for lots of people, but it’s truth. I remember the times that I really worked to take that in – that angels are real. That they are here, for ME.
They are here for you, as well. I am so fortunate to be blessed with gifts of helping others awaken to their angel connections. It always happens when the time is just right. When the stars align, and the human reawakens and connects with Spirit and says, “Let’s do something differently now!”
This awakening is beautiful. It is a process of remembering.
Are you remembering who you really are? Are you curious? Do you seek guidance on this journey? If so, let’s talk.
