I’m just like you. I am a woman who makes mistakes, and oftentimes I do not even realize it! I am a woman who seeks the truth, seeks purpose and seeks meaning. My aim at this moment is for you to know who I am to a degree, to establish credibility and my essence with you as a human being. I would rather meet you, sit and talk to you, but I will work hard to share myself with you through the following words.
Telling you of all my accomplishments does not sit well with me, but I know this is part of you knowing who I am. In essence, these accomplishments are merely “fall outs” of what is inside of my heart. My soul is not made of my accomplishments, but of the relationships I feel with people, the environment, my spirit and the Spirit of the Divine, or God. In this brief introduction, I would like to share with you my passion and why I live the way I live. Today is the only day that is promised.
My life has led me through many challenges that have shaped me and made me who I am. For as long as I can remember, I have loved the spirit of people. The soul within is what I look to see in people, and even without looking I feel people anyway. I know that this world is full of pain and deep heartache. I could never change this because I do not have that power. The knowledge I do have is that each individual has been placed on this earth with special gifts. These gifts are not always discovered, simply because people do not believe they are worthy of such gifts. My aim and heart’s passion is to create a place where people can learn about their special gift. It takes a warrior spirit to fight with courage to get to the center of the heart. I want to create a place where people can uncover the mystery of their soul and discover their true self.
I yearn to create a place where people can understand the importance of their pain, knowing it can be used for the greater good. This suffering is what brings us to the points in our lives that lead us all to greatness. I know this greatness is at the core of every human being, and each individual has a gift to share. It pains my heart to see people live without hope, their beauty blinded by what they can’t necessarily see with their eyes.
My own pain led to the passion to create a holistic healing, communal and transitional avenue for people so they may feel safe in their vulnerability. This is the moment of change and a new life for those that suffer from tremendous trauma. My long-term vision is to create a Holistic Whole Body Center for those who are suffering. WLO will become a place to find rest and peace, a place where the warrior spirit can shine and feel confident in searching out this peace and love, while discovering their own gifts.
We live everyday among the light of the Divine.
I personally have come from such darkness that I did not care to see with clarity any longer. I am a war veteran and have suffered through the bleak despair that comes with combat stress and post-traumatic stress disorder. I was afforded the opportunity to see past this pain and would like to re-create a similar experience for others. I cannot be the creator of peace, but I can be one whose gifts have been called upon to establish an environment where people can work to discover this peace for themselves. The healing spirit enters through these doors to help many. I want to invite those who seek to discover their inner treasure to walk through those doors and dare to explore a journey they have never walked before. The next step is for them to share their gifts with the world. We aim to help them spread this wealth! Our gifts are to be shared with open hands and an open heart.
I merely aim to continue the path of many. The path to greatness is in the spirit of the Divine world, for Divine good, Love, Light and Peace.
