Reflections From My True Self

Remembering Who I Really Am

Surrendering Smallness


Each day I speak surrender of myself to what is bigger than me and this world, I speak surrender of myself to the Source of All That Is, and I speak the release of my fears, of my smallness of mind and imagination… of all my limitations.

But today I stand, as if on the brink of one of those huge open wells that the Mayas held sacred in the Yucatan, looking down into the dark, reflective water, understanding that I could jump into that pool and let go fully of all that I hold to keep me constrained. The water is far below, it looks hard and flat, unyielding. If I were to jump, if I were to leave there every piece of baggage that pulls me downwards, if I were to cleanse myself completely of all the muck… what then?

I cannot imagine the shape I would hold.

My smallness leans back, away from the edge.

But the Life in me yearns for it, as if the water called to me. I take a deep breath and I take the plunge.

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!

  1. Beautifully put. Thank you. Of late I have felt the presence of all that holds me back from becoming what I am meant to become. I feel a block, a fear, a lost memory of what I know to be true. The sacred well is a lovely thought. A baptism. A chance to remember what I used to know.

  2. Bernadette, so often I have found myself existing without awareness of what holds me back. Even if it weighs, I welcome awareness as a blessing because I realize that I have forgotten, and so I can gift myself with new opportunities to remember.
