Who Am I?
Well, that’s a loaded question, but one I’m finally prepared to answer! I’m a mom, a big and little sister, a hairstylist and, drum roll please… a MEDIUM! You heard right, a psychic medium, as many of those who find their way to my page already know. My mediumship is something I was born with although I did not acknowledge it until the (already awkward enough) age of sixteen, when it was more or less thrust upon me. What can I say, word travelled fast and before I knew it, I was making house calls. However, I did my readings reluctantly, under the radar and always asking people who knew me not to tell our mutual friends about my abilities. Although being able to communicate with spirit tends to be one of the more interesting aspects of my personality, it certainly doesn’t define me as a person. It’s not even the reason I’ve carved out my own little nook on the web!
As someone who has spent most of my life trying to fit in and always desperately seeking my own self worth in the approval of others, I’ve learned a thing or two about where genuine happiness and personal fulfillment really come from. More than likely, you too have already discovered that it can’t be found in a giant, oversized home or a shopping spree at the mall. Yet even once we’ve come to this conclusion, it can still be very difficult to know where to look next. Well, as my dear friend Nancy always says, “healing begins within”. That’s right folks, the only place we need search is within the confines of our own hearts and minds. For some, this may sound cliché, but I would venture a guess that these are some of the same people who will go to whatever lengths necessary to avoid doing just that. We’ve all done it! We distract ourselves with everything from food and Facebook to shopping and Starbucks! Whose got time to heal their broken heart or anxious mind when we’ve got Kardashians to keep up with?! I enjoy all these things in moderation, but as a culture we’re using them and a myriad of other (even more insidious) methods to fill a void we feel, either consciously or unconsciously, within ourselves.
Why Am I Here?
Because it’s time to get honest, to observe (without judgment) all the parts of ourselves we’ve condemned and covered up, and to create a new truth about who we are and what we want out of life. What I know is that life is beautiful, a gift to be grateful for, and an opportunity to evolve our own spiritual energy. What I’ve learned is that it’s easy to lose sight of this truth, take our brief time on this planet for granted, and allow ourselves to get weighed down and disillusioned by the emotional miseducation of our past and that of generations before us.
Authentic happiness is born out of discovering who we are as individuals, our own unique truth, and learning how to express that truth in the world without fear or apologies. I spent years hiding my light from those around me, to scared of what they might think or say. Although I still have my moments of doubt and uncertainty (who doesn’t?), I’m the happiest I’ve ever been, now that I’m living fully in My New Truth.
