Reflections From My True Self

Remembering Who I Really Am

Tapped by a calling

My friend Rose Alexander made this for me after Reiki, some coaching, and working through  The Artist’s Way helped her overcome her creative block.

We caught up again recently, for the first time since she returned to Bangkok 6 months ago. It was such a moment of synchronicity for both of us. She wanted to find answers about her daughter’s aura and, as I explained that she could learn how to find out for herself, I was able to remind her that she had been shamanically tapped for her spiritual path when she lived here, if she chooses to answer the call. Turns out, she’s been seeing signs right and left, including things she wouldn’t believe she could find in Thailand, like energy healers using feathers.

And with the call, I am reminded that this is the way it goes with a calling; I didn’t have to try to do anything for her in order to help her, way back when the Reiki worked for her. I am reminded that she wanted to meet me for the energy she perceived in me, not for anything I was trying to portray to her. I am reminded that she has felt supported by me with things that come absolutely naturally, effortlessly to me. When I told her I have been doing intuitive life coaching, she was so excited… because she knows, it suits me perfectly!

And this is a good time to remind myself: I don’t have to think things through so much beforehand, I don’t have to plan all the time and take care of all the “what ifs.” When it comes to following my inner Truth, my mind is frequently a limiting factor, instead of an enhancement.  I have only to be willing to do the footwork and then get out of my own way. Most times I am amazed by what I find!

And when I fall flat on my face, (with time) I remember there is meaning in that, too, before I get up again.

I am an intuitive Life Coach at, helping women who feel stuck, lost, and stressed, in their business or their personal life, to reconnect to who they really are, so they can build a life they thrive in. My clients want to feel confident, energized, and excited by their life again! What makes me different is that I developed a process that combines coaching, spirituality, and energy work and, with it, my clients quickly get rid of anxiety, change the underlying, limiting beliefs that keep them stuck and stressed, and discover they have what they need to thrive!
