Reflections From My True Self

Remembering Who I Really Am

Caught by a wave

Leave a comment

I have a memory of myself once, as a small child, at the seashore, walking into the sea, playing there, relishing the cool water that came up on the sand and receded, moving into it with enthusiasm. I remember suddenly being caught— a wave that gripped me, flung me up, pushed me down, whirled me.

I spluttered, coughed, desperate for clear air. I didn’t know which way was up. I could feel panic closing my throat, my eyes, blinded. I struggled, kicked, flailed.

Unexpectedly my head bumped the sandy ocean floor.

I whirled again.

And then my head broke through the surface of the water, into the freedom of breathing. I filled my lungs.

It is good to remember this. For today I am caught by the wave, rolling. I don’t know which way is up, which way is down.

But I do know this: either my head will hit the sand or it will break the surface of the water. Either way, I will know which way is up.

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!
