What’s My Story?
It wasn’t always like that. I didn’t always know that the answers lived inside me.
In my twenties, I was called out to take a deep dive into my own Inner Core when I was delivered the news of my only sister’s fatal diagnosis. On the heels of a very difficult childhood where my voice and my spirit were squashed, this news rocked my world with profound impact. It forced me to choose between run or stay. I tried to run, but life guided me to stay.
In the very moment that she told me of her incurable illness, time stood still. I was in a phone booth on Qualicum beach in BC, Canada, and a wave of grief washed over me. Then I did the only thing I could, which was to look at what was right in front of me. There it was, a large body of water and brilliant sparkling light. I felt it wash over me and had a sixth sense about something that was much bigger than me. It was a life changing visceral experience that I wanted to hold onto.
Finally, after a long and agonizing 10 year journey my sister took her last breath. Once again, time stood still as I had the privilege and honor of holding her hand in her dying moment. This time the brilliant sparkling light, like an electrical charge, travelled through my whole body.
This powerful encounter and connection with something much larger than myself cracked me wide open.
It was the beginning of my remembering who Julie really was. It was the beginning of my understanding the power of my own infinite intelligence and intuition. And it was time to start really listening and paying attention. It was the beginning of realizing that each aspect of my life trickles into the next, and that my mind, body, and soul are intricate components to my wholeness. I came to know that nothing is separate.
My sister’s death was a life defining moment. It was also a message of courage to turn my despair and adversity into GOLD.
This journey has taken me through many fields as I learned to listen IN for my own answers, and move through the fear of the unknown, fear of being imperfect, fear of death, and habitual fear of not having or being enough. Little did I know that I had arranged my life to protect myself from pain. Strangely, and without realizing it, I later discovered that it was the very thing that kept me in it.
And so I made space for inspiration to come in and developed practices that supported my healing and personal transformation.
Learning the art of deep listening to my Inner Core and my body’s intelligence have become the greatest gifts of my life. They’ve led me to learn how to care for myself first so that I can be of greater value in all my relationships.
The way I think, feel, speak, listen, move, eat, sleep and how I express myself keeps transforming itself on a cellular level as my nervous system adjusts itself, and there’s no turning back.
These changes are occurring as a result of my decision to let my intelligent body and Inner Core show me the way, so that I can tend to living a life true to myself. As a result I can better tend to the relationships that matter most – those with myself AND with others.
Joy and clarity has now seeped into my bones and when I get off track I use powerful practices to get back on.
And so can you!
