Reflections From My True Self

Remembering Who I Really Am

I Dream of Biking


I dream that I am riding my bicycle. I travel quickly down the steep mountain highway that leads, for a fistful of miles, from my childhood farm. I hear the wind whistle and feel joy, in spite of the fact that I am careening, slightly out of control.

I realize, vaguely, that I will need to turn at some point, before I reach the crossroads at the bottom of the precipitous incline. I feel, first, confident, and then, afraid.

Meanwhile, in the back of my mind, I remember the Olympic cyclists training, sweat pouring down their faces, their breath rasping in the rare air as they slowly pumped up this mountain, in the opposite direction. I hope that, on the return, I won’t have to push the bike uphill.

I awaken to the uneasy knowledge that, as I roll through life, I feel comfort, because I can see my hands on the handlebar. As if that had any bearing on my path at all.

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. I am loving this. I am cyclist and realize that as I pedal I move energy through my body and with the co-ordination of my hands, I move with ease and momentum. Life exists in all our metaphors cause we are that, Life. On the bicycle of Life we encounter much in our momentum and have the opportunity to experience more in the now as we observe everything now. Cycling has a great way of making us present to what is now.

    Thank you so much Andrea for reminding of how cycling supports me in being present.

    What a gift.
