There’s a lot of talk about this year of huge change, 2016 being the endings of things that no longer serve us, taking care of ourselves in a deeper way, and opening up in a bigger way spiritually! I’m feeling it and I am ready! How about you?
A big part of what inspired me to begin WISH – Women in Soulful Harmony was my loving mother. My mother was my greatest teacher in learning love, compassion, patience, forgiveness and trust.
With my husband I in the ‘sandwich generation’, we were in the middle of caring for an ailing parent along with making sure our daughter was taken care of while she was in grad school. Financially trying to maneuver through it all with my husband being laid off was definitely a huge worry for the both of us. I needed to be more available to mom so my therapy practice went very part time causing more financial stress. Our lives appeared on the outside to be really out of control. Thank goodness we had money saved and sparingly used that to hold us over but then again the fear of using that money we’d saved stressed us out as it was our retirement money! We were in a cycle of stress and worry!
The quote: “We are not physical beings having a spiritual experience; we are spiritual beings having a physical experience” by Pierre Teilhard de Chardin came up in my mind often and I knew the worrying and stress was physically not serving my husband, my mom or me. I knew deep down, that I needed to let go and trust that we were going to be okay as we always were. I came back to the present moment often and took deep breaths often.
You see, I’ve always believed there was more to this physical life. Being an empath, I’ve been sensitive to energy, very intuitive and on some level, knew that my angels, guides, ancestors have always been looking after me. I KNEW that I needed to let go of my own ego, trying to figure it all out. I let go and let God and my guides guide me. I called on my angels and guides to give me the strength to manage and juggle all I was doing.
As a young child I had a difficult time figuring out who God was (being raised a Catholic). Over time, I’ve realized for myself, that God is everywhere, all around us, and within us. God is Universal Life Force Energy and we are part of the beautiful energy. We are Divine, Light Beings living on this earth to learn to love ourselves more, love others, be more compassionate, forgiving, patient because God (Universal Life Force Energy) is a symbol of these beautiful, spiritual virtues.
This was my focus and my mission for my mother’s last days of her life. I didn’t know when she was going to physically leave this earth plane, but I was going to focus on being more compassionate, forgiving, patient and loving to my mom every moment. I let go of worry and fear and focused more on love. I can say I have no regrets and thank my mom for being such a gift to me in learning this.
To this day, I remember and practice present moment awareness when my ego gets in the way and I get in a worry mode. I meditate and call in my guides to support and guide me daily. I take a deep breath, shift my energy and focus on being grateful, loving, and patient with others and myself. Because in the end, doesn’t it feel better to feel good??
My mission is to live a spiritually driven life as we maneuver through our physical lives with more intention! I would love to partner with you to teach you tools I have learned to ‘align with your divine’, to live a soul-inspired, spiritual, purposeful life, EVERY day.
