“I’ve never seen any transformation that didn’t begin with the person in question finally getting tired of their own bullshit."
That's my favorite Elizabeth Gilbert quote. She posted it on Twitter in 2014 after she skyrocketed to fame following the release of her book, "Eat, Pray, Love". And of all the wisdom and relatable content in her books, that Twitter quote is still my favorite of hers.Until you acknowledge what's getting in your way you can't clear your path. Whether it's an excuse, a fear, a resentful or disempowering thought or relationship, the bullshit you're subscribing to is going to keep holding you back. You cannot change or fix what you will not acknowledge. Truth taught me to be brave and to respect myself.
You've seen those games where you match the name of the street you grew up on with the last thing you ate to come up with a comical alias for yourself? Well I saw one of those a few months ago that was based on a coming up with a spiritual nickname, and it led me to this moniker: I am THE COURAGEOUS GUIDING ANGEL. On one hand - WOW, that's a lot to live up to! And on the other hand, YES, I AM.
My belief is that I'm guided by a higher power and that I have been placed here to help and inspire and guide people. Most days, knowing why I'm here and what I'm here to do keeps me focused and determined to do the work. Occasionally it can feel like a big responsibility. But it never feels like it's not 'for me'.
So what does that mean to me, to be a Courageous Guiding Angel? It means I am doing my best to live in a honest way, taking good care of myself mentally, physically and spiritually with the intention and hope that it will inspire others (like you) to do the same. Now, I can’t pull you from your bed or sofa and put you into your gym shoes or pull you onto your yoga mat. I can’t change for you what you don’t like about yourself or your life; I can only guide you when you need the kind of guidance I can offer.
Your "karma" (your task), if you want to change something in your life, is to do the work. I can be your cheerleader, I can give you the workout plan or the spiritual assignments or the blueprint for a yoga flow. I can give you my compassion, my support, and share my knowledge. I have been active in the field of personal and spiritual development for 20+ years. I have walked on fire twice (literally, at Tony Robbins seminars), and I have studied under dozens of outstanding yoga and meditation teachers and fitness trainers. I have embodied physical movement since I first put on ballet shoes at age 3. I'm committed to daily practices that support my own evolution to living with more bliss everyday, and I want to share it all with you.
Everything around us is seems to be in transformation or reconstruction right now and it can be heavy. Whenever you are ready to jump into your own transformation I'm here, ready to guide you.
