Drenched in Catholicism and rebelling all the way, I spent great deal of my younger years as a bad girl. I did very naughty things, with very naughty people, in very naughty places but despite my wicked ways I had a stunning career, a sought after lifestyle, did pretty much whatever I wanted, whenever I pleased and always thought I loved every minute of it. I was on the fast track to fame, fortune, bigger and better but somehow never found best until the world as I knew it came to a crashing halt in August 1999.
There is such a gift in traumatic events. (The intimate details of mine are irrelevant. You can insert your own drama here if you must.) And oh yes, suffering can bring you to your knees, but when searing pain breaks you open, you’re left with incredible options. You can decide to retreat back into the discomfort and familiarity of your former life or to invite in the extraordinary.
Sitting on a plane headed for Vancouver, I opened Eckhart Tolle’s The POWER of NOW, and was overtaken by a book so inspiring, that I had no choice but to be transformed to the depth of my being. I’ve never, ever looked back. Not even a glance. (If you haven’t read Tolle’s work, I highly recommend it.)
That day in January of the year 2000 I began allowing my spirit to observe my mind and from then I read, watched, studied, attended workshops and took courses on anything and everything that would feed my soul.
Now riding the spiritual wave is a journey inward. If you’ve ever spent time by a large body of water, you know that waves can be totally unpredictable! On this voyage, the route is rarely direct and there’ s never a time when emotions aren’t flowing.
For me it started with gentle rolling waves that carried me gracefully forward. Then there were the medium size waves that excited me and stimulated my desire to dive deeper. When those big ones came along I was totally slammed up against my stuff and then there was the occasion tsunami that had my ego screaming endlessly at the insane part of me I had allowed to take over my mind and decide any of this was a good idea!
Over time there were flashes of incredible stillness. Fleeting as they were I felt it. I sensed what every person who had walked this path before me was talking about and completely understood why that feeling defied description. I’d found that best I’d been searching for and it filled me in every way possible! Then in one extraordinary instant I realized it had always been there ~ at my core ~ just waiting to be acknowledged! It was ME, my blessed sacred self. My connection to all that is. Oneness with the Divine. Divinity. Always there. Always available. Eternal. ME.
And it’s you too. YOU. ME. US. ONE Spirit, shared by each of us with ALL that is.
Over the coming months I have the privilege sharing my passion for Spirit with you. I welcome your suggestions, questions and appreciate your feedback. Let’s ride this Spiritual wave together!
