My Story Goes A Little Something Like This…

Writing is the longest relationship I’ve ever been in.

28 years and counting and my Love for words, expression, exploration and uncovering the great mysteries of this life is as strong as its ever been. It’s an enduring Love. A Love that always returns me back to who I really am, that reminds me why I’m here and empowers me to be more filled with Love, with truth, with zeal, with joy.

Being a writer makes me a better human.

And isn’t that what all of the best relationships should do for us?

As I shared above, I was gifted with the clear knowing that I was a writer, long before I knew what it would entail to be one. I dreamed of being an editor at Seventeen magazine (the coolest mag back in my day) and found myself saying yes to any job and to any possibility that would let me write.

My mother believed this to be a terrible choice for my future, and had no problem telling me as much. My sophomore year Global Studies teacher Mr. Dean told me not to waste my time with a journalism degree, because there were – and I quote, “1,000 journalism majors without jobs in Oregon” at that time (1993).

Initially, I believed them both.

But that didn’t stop me from devouring Shakespeare, Poe and Whitman, and later Rumi, Hafiz and Paulo Coelho. It didn’t stop me from reading everything I could get my hands on and filling journals with my poetry, my short stories, my ideas, and my thoughts.

I began at a community college studying marketing and PR, a way to write and supposedly – from what the adults told me – make a good living. I worked in that arena for 7 years before I finally began taking side gigs as a freelance writer.

It was at my Saturn Return that I left my mega-watt corporate job and went full-time as a freelancer. The kiss of death many told me. It would never work out for me they shouted.

But, for me, it was not – because it was my Destiny – and so I thrived, making more money and having more freedom than I had in a 9-5.

I continued on writing as a freelancer when a health crisis took me deeper into my calling – being of service to others (not just writing about it) and a spiritual awakening. I delved into energy medicine and quantum physics with the same fervor that writing had taken me through in the first part of my life.

I had experienced a radical healing – one minute very sick with a “mystery illness” and then after a psychic surgery at John of God in Brazil – completely healed and vital. I wanted to understand what exactly had happened to me, how it had happened and if those results could be reproduced (of course I uncovered that they can).

This Divine exploration took me on a radical spiritual journey of meditation, sacred spiritual practice (all led by my intuition and Higher Wisdom, not by any tradition or dogma) and deeper connection with non-physical energy.

Healing energy began coming out of my hands after my 2008 psychic surgery and through a series of synchronistic turns I was led to the energy medicine modality of BodyTalk. Immediately, I knew it was the modality for me to pay it forward and pass on healing to more Souls.

1,000+ individuals later, I was guided to co-create a mission-based organization called Rising UP for Love as the vehicle for spreading more Love on this plane of consciousness through meditations, healings, Love Activism with key organizations, emotional empowerment tools and more. You can join the movement here.

Still, through it all, I write.

My writing now includes channeled transmissions or automatic writing as I bring through Divine Wisdom from 5 non-physical Ascended Masters of the Highest Light whom I call The JOGs (I “met” them in 2013 at the John of God casa in Brazil, hence the name). This writing has been some of my most easeful and joyous as my ego-mind completely gets out of the way and allows Divine truths to pour through.

I have no idea where my writing journey will take me next – although I do have books #8 and #9 in the works, so I have a small clue –  but even so, whatever it is I know it will be mystical, rich and joyous.

Thank you for being part of my journey, and I look forward to all of the delicious ways you and I meet up – on this plane and beyond. Xo

“I love a book that makes me laugh and inspires me to honor the truth I feel within. The Quest does all of this and more. It artfully encourages us to follow what we know to be true – that we have the answers within. The Quest is a story anyone can relate to and it leads us to knowing that when all is said and done – our truth is all that matter.”
