Born to American Buddhist parents who embraced all things Eastern, I grew up on a macrobiotic diet, and alternative medicine like homeopathy and Chinese herbs, nestled in the mountain town Boulder, Colorado.
But I had my own path to pioneer; I always felt different and I was blocked for many years from who I truly was and what my true purpose was.
I arrived in New York City and began a career in publishing. I soon realized there was another path I was meant to take, but I felt trapped and confused. After four years I left publishing to fulfill the spark within me that was driving me to contribute to the world in a meaningful way.
ACCEPTING THE CALL.
The event that changed everything was in 2011 when I hit a rockbottom in a breakup that triggered my spiritual awakening. I accepted the call, the invitation to step onto my soul’s path, a new world and leave my old world behind.
Love became a catalyst for my healing, my growth and awakening to my mission to serve.
It was in my darkest hour that I became willing to listen. Stepping out of what some would call the Dark Night of the Soul, I began to live and apply the spiritual teachings, transforming my life from the inside out in ways I never thought possible.
The baseline of my transformation was that I chose to stop believing in illusions and start putting my faith in reality, which was a radical purification of all my fears and limiting beliefs and a return to the truth of the love within me. Dissolving separation and reconnecting with love was my path to freedom.
The final soul lesson, the obstacle that would get me there by shaking me to the core, releasing all that no longer served me was when I lost everything again — except this time it was my home and everything I owned when I abruptly hit a financial wall and couldn’t sustain myself. I had to look deep within myself to see that I was still not fully believing I was capable of creating anything I wanted; I was being called to become the heroine of my own life.
Upon learning this lesson, within lightspeed timing, my world cracked open to a miraculous level of abundance and I could now see that fear was truly the only thing that held me back; when I fully released it, I realized I had the power in me all along. I’ve had to lose everything to gain what I’ve gained today; we are all stripped bare on some level to become who we really are. And who we really are are powerful creators, not victims of our circumstances.
HAPPINESS IS SERVICE.
As we leave our old life behind and step into the new one, we experience challenges and obstacles but every moment and situation calls us to move from fear to love; eventually we rise above the laws of the physical world and become a master of two worlds, our inner life and our outer life, claiming our power in both.
Through reconnecting with my true self, my mission hatched.
I awakened to my responsibility on the planet. Happiness is our purpose, and this is because our purpose is to serve. As we become happy, we are able to serve on a higher level because it’s a ripple effect of love, positively affecting everyone around us and we awaken to our life’s purpose–our mission.
My mission is to make love a global force, awakening all willing hearts and minds by sharing the tools and teachings that awakened me to my best self.
I believe we all have a purpose that we’re meant to wake up to as we shed the shrouds of doubt and fear—and as we do, our gifts and passions are revealed and activated, and our purpose is to share them with the world–to be love in action. As we choose love over fear, we become a love pioneer; the aliveness of this world cracks open to us and we live a life beyond our wildest dreams.
