I always knew I was different.
I was born an empath, so feeling EVERYTHING has always been a part of normal life for me. I grew up talking to my spirit guides/angels, sensing energy of others, places, and things around me, and would often receive audible and energetic messages from seemingly out of nowhere. I was raised Catholic, so I never talked about these things out of fear of being perceived as weird, crazy, or “of the devil”. Let’s face it, had I mentioned these things to most people, I would have either been burned at the stake or at the very least sent for a psych eval. So, I kept my head down, tried to bury it, and pretend it didn’t exist. Funny lesson I learned….things don’t always work that way. It wasn’t as simple as “turning it off”. It persisted, (obviously for good reason) but I just didn’t know why, yet. So, I had to learn to channel it and use it alone. No one else ever spoke to me about these things happening to them, so I assumed I was the odd one out and I hid a lot underneath the surface. On the outside everything seemed “normal”, but inside I felt like a complete outsider. I questioned my place in this world and felt very alone and confused. I felt that I was somehow being punished or cursed. Little did I know how wrong I was.
By the time I entered my mid 20’s I had accepted this as a part of me. I began to embrace it, educate myself about it, and I started practicing journaling, meditation, and tarot. From these practices even more of my gifts were called forward. My intuition became super strong and also had clear knowledge of things beyond feeling them. I felt more and more connected to my Self and God/Source/The Universe, but I was having a lot of questions about life, its purpose, and our existence. Why are we here? Why am I here? Why do I feel like something is missing? What is my soul’s purpose? What is this pull I’m constantly feeling? Where is it trying to lead me? Why do I feel like I’ve been here before? Why am I drawn to certain people, places, eras, and things? Are we infinite? What does it all mean? What am I being told? There has to be more….This can’t just be it? The questions kept coming and my curiosity led me down a very large rabbit hole of information of a world I knew existed, but had no idea the depth and magnitude of it.
My late 30’s were a huge turning point in my spiritual journey when I discovered that I’m a healer. I was totally gobsmacked to discover this about myself because I never considered this possibility. I mean, I’m not your typical healer type. I’m not a quiet, calm, or peaceful energy. I’m a fiery, magnetic, highly energetic being. But to me, so much actually started making sense about this new discovery. When Reiki found me, it was very obvious that this gift was to play a huge part in my life’s journey. Holy shit, I’m a freaking lightworker! And this is where my lifetime commitment to energy work began.
It was during these four years that life coaching started calling my name. I’ve always been the person family and friends have come to when they either needed some insight or advice, brainstorm with, or even just someone to listen. It’s in the energy I project because random strangers will come up to me and just start sharing their life stories. All signs pointed to life coaching and this playing huge part of my soul’s purpose. The pull was undeniable and I couldn’t ignore it, so I dove head-first into it and never looked back.
My spiritual journey will never be complete. It’s a neverending spiral and I will always choose to dive deeper into discovery and exploration of my Self and gifts, and my education and growth. This journey hasn’t always been easy, but it’s always been worth it. It fascinates me and I’m excited to see where I can go from here. I’ve already learned so much about my Self in this lifetime. Everything I’ve had to go through, the hard lessons I’ve learned, and gifts I have, are what make up the groundwork of the path I’m on. For years I doubted and was ashamed of myself. I thought my abilities were some punishment or curse. These gifts (as I now call them) that caused me to question my existence and place in this world, are the very reason why I’m here.
I am different. Nothing about me is typical or conventional and I never want to be. I’ve been training my whole life for this. This is my work. This is my bliss. This is my calling.
