I’m living my dream in this very moment. I’ve worked “hard” to make it happen. I’ve stayed committed and pulled out my GRIT toolkit many times which includes courage, tenacity and never giving up. I’ve mixed in just the right amount of fire from my inner core, so it’s all happening in perfect timing.
I now experience deep connections with people that I never imagined existed. It’s such a joy and honor to serve and I look with excitement to the possibilities for the future. I’ve gotten more serious about my paintings and even have some of them turned into clothing designs. I attracted my soul partner almost 2 years ago and finally have an amazing, conscious relationship. I co-authored a book and became a best-seller earlier this year. But it wasn’t always this way.
I came onto this planet with immense fear. This lead to life experiences that were scary and difficult. I was molested at any early age. The next door neighbor tried to kill me. I was run over by a giant farm tractor. Three boys pulled behind me when my car broke down as a young teen (cell phones weren’t common then). I knew something bad was about to happen when out of the blue, a tow truck pulled in front of my car to assist. The Universe had a way of sending help whenever I needed it. When I turned 18 the panic attacks and heart problems started as well as agoraphobia, anorexia and a more intense fear of dying. Boy problems began around 18 with one cad after another. I went to college and started, stopped, started, stopped. I was always sick. I drank a lot. I did some drugs. I was raped by several boys at a frat party. By the end of my fifth year of college, I was offered a singing job on the road with a national act. It gave me a chance to leave home and explore the world, so I took it. And being “on the road” was a road filled with many lessons.
Throughout my life I was lost and unhappy. I survived 2 abusive marriages, which ended in divorce. Through my second marriage, I was gifted with a beautiful little girl who ended up suffering terribly from the chaos and disconnection, but who is the love of my life. I was also gifted with a voice and pursued a 38 year professional vocal/musical career, which had its ups and downs. In 1999, I landed in a very toxic relationship and during a 14 year period, suffered terribly. I stayed because I felt I had no way of making a decent income and believed no one would ever love me again. 2007 brought the San Diego wildfires. We had 15 minutes to leave our home, with a 100 foot wall of flames coming up from the canyon across the street, 100 mph winds and flying embers that burned our skin. We lost everything. My daughter had lost her home with her dad in the Cedar fire 3 years previous. We moved 4 times until we found a decent rental, settled in and not two months later, I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I went through months of surgery and treatment while rebuilding our home.
One year later, we moved back into our home and the unhappiness hit. Hard. I had a gorgeous, brand new home, new furniture, new clothes and zero joy. I was an empty shell. Within 3 years, both of my beloved dogs died, my father passed traumatically and I just couldn’t “do” the old, heavy, joyless life of misery any longer. I knew if I stayed I would die. So, I followed my heart, packed my bags and my kid, and moved out.
The following year brought more freedom but an intense hatred of my jobs as an elementary school admin and flood insurance agent. The music industry experienced economic disaster from 2008 on and gigs were scarce. Things just dried up. I was afraid but knew I was created for something more. I listened and followed my intuition, even when I didn’t understand it. I was prompted to work with and for an intuitive group to expand my abilities and create a coaching business, which required a move to Malibu. My daughter and I went our separate ways. The year held the highest of highs and the lowest of lows. When the company decided to take everyone’s money and go back to Australia, we all felt deeply betrayed. Six months later, I moved back to San Diego.
Through a series of synchronicities and clear inner guidance, my next step was to sign up with a business coach to learn practical skills on how to build my business. I had no idea that the program would bring up my deepest fears and bring me face-to-face with myself. I allowed myself to be seen, I hit walls and worked through layers of old beliefs and patterns. I allowed myself to expand, to become more and that’s where I am today. I have two coaches now, an amazing community, clients and my dream business. I’m free. I’m able to serve. I’m making money doing what I love. I get to teach others what it takes to do this, too. It ignites my inner fire and makes my life worth living.
After all I’ve been through, I’m here in a big way. Not surviving, but THRIVING. I give thanks for all of my life challenges. I’m grateful for my inner guidance, all the “angels” who crossed my path and who continue to support me along the way as well as the beautiful synchronicities that always lead to the next best step. I know that I’m stronger than I ever imagined myself to be and because of that, I’m a very transparent, courageous, authentic leader. I hold a space for others to rise to their greatness. I know I’m needed just like so many others. If this was possible for me, it’s possible for everyone. My success truly came when I found the balance of surrendering to Spirit as the CEO of my life and standing in my power. When I began to align with my core essence and started trusting my inner guidance. When I made that inner commitment to finding myself and walking the path to service to others, no matter what.
Each soul comes to this life experience with a guidance system and with incredible super-powers beyond anything imaginable. So trust that if you’re being called to something more, you have all you need. You just need to take the first step and then, keep moving. I’m living proof that anyone can do anything they desire if they commit, act and keep going. And this leads to a full and magical life, one with no regrets.
I’m here to help you be all you came here to be. I’m an Authenticity Coach at the core and that’s been my journey. Discovering who you are is a priority as your conscious business IS you! Next is building a solid foundation by learning to align with and manage your energy and mastering hearing your intuition and living from that space daily. This makes navigating life much easier. And if you lack the skills to become visible, I teach the business skills necessary to get started, to get you real clients. I’m a “one stop shop.” And I want YOU to live your life ON FIRE.
