It has been a strange and varied path! I have always felt I was here to do something specific, but never could figure it out. I spent plenty of time seeking answers and was often told "you are gifted, psychic, and are here to help others - but you are veiled". That did not help! I just wanted someone to tell me the answers, point me in a direction, paint the picture for me so I could pursue it. And to explain to me what these 'gifts' were and how to access, control and use them.
Don't get me wrong, I did get many intuitive insights, messages, and visitations and more along the way, all of which helped with the tiny steps I was taking along my life path. And though life has not always been easy, I have often said I lead a charmed life. But it took me a while to synthesize the magic that has been happening all my life is meant to be shared.
As mentioned, my path has been anything but straight and narrow. I have held a variety of professional positions in several industries. I hold a BS in Industrial Engineering and an MS in Data Analytics. I worked in the automotive industry for years, in a variety of roles that include diesel mechanic, manufacturing engineer, product release engineer, maintenance supervisor, project manager, trainer, instructional designer, business developer, operations manager, executive director, and more. I have also worked in real estate and as a high school math teacher and special educator. My path meandered through directions changes as I kept wanting to try something different, or as interesting opportunities arose. I have gained incredible insight, knowledge, skills and experiences through this journey. These twists and turns were for a variety of reasons: I was following what i felt was expected of me, I was following curiosity and a desire for change, and I was seeking something - because as much as I enjoyed and learned from all these experiences, deep inside I knew I hadn't landed where i belong yet.
Through it all, I was 'woo'. Innately spiritual, I have always had intuitive and psychic experiences. Longing to understand them, I read and studied many different resources on spirituality, religions, psychology, and metaphysical studies. I have taken courses on many of the same topics, as well as energy work, meditation, mediumship, and more. I also continued to work my intuition and messages and signs personally and for others. There was even a time, about 16 years ago, when I decided to try to heed my inner calling, published a book on dream analysis and conducted a series of workshops. But, I veered off that path. In hindsight, I was not yet ready. I had more to learn and experience, and I was still fearing judgement and feeling too much of a need to be more normal and mainstream.
Finally, it all came together! I am following my True North, expressing my authenticity and embracing my abilities and gifts. The veil has lifted, I have found clarity. I know I am here to help others do the same. While I will always be learning and growing in my experiences, knowledge and skills, I have gained a unique ability to bridge the gap for people, to mainstream the magic that is all around us so that we can all step into our authenticity and live our best life.
So, here I am. Unveiled and ready to serve.
