The Unfolding Of Authentic Self, Soul Purpose and Optimal Wellbeing
Learning to trust and follow your highest self and inner purpose can change your entire life – including your bank account!
I know first hand since I used to live from a place of scarcity, imbalance and fear.
I was born a miser – great at compiling money and creating a safe but restrictive bubble around my life. I also had innate reaction of saying NO when it came to money, which affected how I engaged with life, unconsciously saying no to investing in small and big life experiences.
Beyond the monetary impact, this pattern affected how I felt about myself and my ability to express my truth in the world. I spent 7 years struggling with compulsive overeating in high school and college and had trouble communicating about my needs in relationships. It even restricted my professional growth.
My journey of inner expansion began when I entered massage school, which marked the start of my professional and personal journey of health and self-discovery. Up until that point, I had lived very much in my head. In fact, I excelled at doing organized, logical, and capable tasks – all of which are highly prized in our goal-oriented society.
What wasn’t so developed for me was how to fully know and trust who I was, much less know how to BE – expressing my spirit and heart as well as my mind. This was not only unchartered territory, it was also downright uncomfortable! And yet something – I’ll call it my inner spirit spark – led me to step out of my head and kept nudging me over the years as I explored deeper.
Although I had been practicing yoga for over twelve years, I had not been able to hold a daily practice until I became introduced in 2004 to a style of yoga called Kundalini Yoga As Taught By Yogi Bhajan. I felt energetically alive, aware and connected in a way I had not experienced before. And I wanted more and body did I get it!
My transformational self journey skyrocketed when I committed to hold a meditation for 1000 days for prosperity at the beginning of my yoga teacher training. Thinking I just needed more money and all would be good, I focused on prosperity.
And it worked. In one year my salary doubled!
But other amazing things began to happen. I started to say yes to investing in life including doing a kitchen remodel, taking a big international trip, and doing further professional trainings. While the money went down initially in our bank accounts, it quickly filled back up and more.
I discovered money is simply part of an energetic flow. By holding tightly in fear to that money, I was constricted myself and blocked the flow of new money, and all the energy and experience it brings with it, from coming in.
I discovered my lack of prosperity wasn’t about money, it was about trust. And what I gained was more than financial freedom – it was the deep acceptance, love and understanding of my essential self and the knowledge that I am always supported by the universe when I open to that support. I began to better live in alignment with my truth and from that space prosperity flowed into my life in so many ways.
My relationships improved as I developed ways to express myself more effectively and honor others truths even when they weren’t full comfortable for me – what I call “balancing the me in we”.
And as far as my wellbeing, I have never been healthier.
- Gone are both the physical and mental habits of compulsive eating.
- The digestive symptoms of periodic gas, bloating and mild constipation, which I thought were normal, are rare.
- I am rarely sick and, when I am, I recover easily and quickly. I use the opportunity to clarify what is imbalanced and to ask myself, “What do I need to pay attention to?” Coming back into balance is now a simple process of making small adjustments and knowing what tools I need to use in any given moment.
- I’m even going through the fun hormonal changes of peri-menopause with ease and I’m happy to report that I have avoided hot flashes completely!
- My energy is stable allowing me to enjoy all the activities I love.
I had the courage to start my own prosperous business and step into my dharma or soul purpose in a fuller way. As my value in myself increased, I was able to charge more equitably for my services. And, believe it or not, charging a higher worth actually helped my clients deepen their own commitment to get more transformative results.
My mission to make the world a better place took the form of helping individuals to step into the full expression of their authentic truth. From living in alignment with their essential self, you too can enjoy more optimal health and abundance!
I used to think of enlightenment as an end point – one that loomed just out of my reach. My vision of enlightenment was the end point of a journey, a state of permanent balance and health. I thought if I learned enough, had the perfect yoga practice and diet, and worked hard enough, I would eventually achieve it – and could then cross it off my life “to do” list and move on.
Along the way, I discovered that this end point I was searching for doesn’t exist because life and balance are always changing. I am not static, but rather am always growing, changing and flowing with the external forces in life. Instead of enlightenment being the end point, it is being in my best alignment with my Self – no more, no less – as my best changes in each moment and each day.
It was at this point that I quit “working” the process and began enjoying the ride.
Instead of just wanting to get the job over and done with, I began to wake up each morning open to experiencing the fullness of life.
In this space of essential connection – grounded in my lifestyle self care resources – my life flows with EASE, ABUNDANCE and GRACE.
