This is where I began my true spiritual re-awakening. I started reading the book and I could not put it down. I was feverishly making notes, and every page I turned was another forehead slapper. I just couldn’t believe how much this message resonated with me and it baffled me that I had never found this information before! At the time I felt that it could have saved me a lot of hardship earlier, in my life but I now know it came into my life at the perfect time, what I call divine timing, and I was finally ready to receive the message it carried.
I still remember clearly today, the words that shifted my entire perspective on life, he said “We are spiritual beings having a temporary physical experience”. These words pierced the layers of fear in my heart like a knife and began to shatter that fear into tiny pieces. What a liberating realization! I knew now that no matter what happened from that point on, I could handle it. This physical experience was really an illusion, and the spiritual experience was the reality. My heart leapt for joy and when I finally fell asleep that night, I slept peacefully.
The next morning, when they let me out of my cell, as I approached the stairs to go for breakfast, I felt that fear building again in my chest. Then I repeated those words to myself, “I am a spiritual being having a physical experience and it is temporary.” Immediately I felt the peace return to my heart and I carried on my way.
Both myself and my partner were acquitted of these charges, but by that time our lives were turned upside down, damages were done, and many good people suffered as a result. I myself was forced to declare bankruptcy, as there was no way to dig out of the financial hole that had resulted.
When I look back now, I can see clearly what had been taking place over the past couple years. I can recognize so many signs that were given to me by the angels, my guides, the universe, divine intelligence, source, God or whatever you want to call it. They had given me sign after sign but I had not been paying attention. They were trying to point me in a specific direction but I was not listening.
Well, have you heard the saying, “We make plans and God laughs?” I had been living almost completely in my Ego and had become so disconnected from Spirit, that I was not noticing the signs all around me. So one day the Creator said, “Ok everyone, she is not getting it so we are going to have to do something drastic. We are going to disconnect her from everything in her physical life and that is when we will finally be able to reach her.” And so, I found myself in a jail cell.
I can honestly say, if I had not hit rock bottom and lost everything, I don’t know how long it would have taken me to wake up, or if I ever would have. During this time I went inside myself and found who I really was. I began to feed my connection with spirit and that changed everything. You see, we all have a divine life purpose or mission, and I had strayed too far from my path. People say that when a door closes another one opens. I have found this to be true. I was holding on so hard to who I thought I was, that I could not become who I was destined to be. It is in the letting go of what is, and having faith in what can be, that we finally let go of resistance and all of the doors begin to open for us.
I am sincere when I say now, that I am so very thankful for every single experience I have had in my life, because it has brought me exactly where I am today. One of my favorite quotes is by Albert Einstein, “A ship is safest at shore, but that is not what it was built for.”
I honestly would not change a single detail of my life, because I love where I am today. I am in complete alignment with my divine purpose as a result of what has come before. And I really want to emphasize how grateful I am for every person in my life, all of you who offered so much support and love to me through all of this.
My re-awakening process began with that book by Wayne Dyer, but Reiki is what brought me all the way to where I am today. Reiki is an ancient Japanese form of healing, and the word Reiki means spiritually guided life force energy. Reiki propelled my healing process and my spiritual re-awakening process at super speed. It was the missing piece of the puzzle for me. I had been aware of the law of attraction, and energy vibration for a few years previous to learning Reiki, but no matter what I did or how hard I tried, I could not keep myself in a higher vibrational state. Reiki solved this for me, it raised my vibration and helped me maintain that state of higher vibration.
I also experienced physical healing that I never thought possible. I was diagnosed with scoliosis at the age of 14. Scoliosis is a curvature of the spine, and it was very painful and I had suffered with chronic headaches as a result. After a few months of reiki treatments, my spine began to straighten. This was absolutely miraculous to me. I knew I had to go all the way with Reiki. I did my Master Teacher level in Usui Reiki, and then I went on to do the next levels of Reiki which was Karuna. We have done two Awakened Hearts Radio Shows about Reiki, you can listen to these archived shows at the following links:
I began implementing the Reiki into my massage therapy practice, and my clients were experiencing amazing results. Then Reiki opened up a part of myself that I had never explored before. I found myself seeing and feeling auras and energies, I was receiving divine messages for my clients and for myself. I began doing intuitive readings, using angel cards, and guiding and coaching my clients on their own journeys. Reiki allowed me to access ancient knowledge that I have known before, and it helped me connect to that divine universal intelligence in a huge way.
Along the way I discovered that Boyd Campbell was my Twin Flame, or Twin Soul. For those of you who are unfamiliar with the term, it is the other half of your soul. Twin Souls journey on their own path and life lessons, and when the timing is right they are reunited. These reunions are always paired with a divine purpose that the two are meant to carry out together. The purpose of the twin flame re-union at this time on earth is one of service to others. These reunions are occurring more frequently right now on earth and will continue to accelerate as the consciousness of humanity expands. We have been receiving a lot of questions about Twin Flame relationships and we will do an entire show about that topic on a future episode of
Awakened Hearts Live Talk Radio
Perhaps my biggest epiphany was when I realized that one of the reasons I had experienced so much in this life was so that I could help others who were experiencing similar situations. I truly believe that everything that happens to us happens for a reason and comes with a divine lesson. Now I have been presented with the argument by some, that we have free will, and therefore everything does not happen for a reason, but rather because of what we choose. So I want to share with you a perspective on this that I learned from Wayne Dyer. We do have free will, and that gives us the right to choose. Free will boils down to this, our right to choose to connect with Spirit or not. When we choose to connect with Spirit, all of the choices we make will be in alignment with our highest good. When we choose not to connect with spirit, we are making choices on our own and they may or may not be in alignment with our highest good.
Seriously, two and a half years ago I was sitting in a jail cell, and today I am co-host of a Live Talk Radio Show on VoiceAmerica Talk Radio Network. My life is proof that miracles do happen. Each one of us has the power to change our life, we are only limited by fear. Get past the fear and EVERYTHING is possible.
