Sojourn

My parents introduced me to world religions and meditation from an early age. At Boston College, a Jesuit school, I learned more about world religions and earned a BA in Psychology. At 20 years old, my best friend passed away from leukemia. In my deep depression, I found that focusing on compassion for another human, even for a moment, was like a breath of fresh air. I sought out ways to be of service. I volunteered at a hotline for frazzled parents. I was a Big Sister to an 8-year-old girl. I volunteered at an orphanage in Haiti. Those people helped me more than I helped them. My service was a life raft that saved me from drowning in my depression. 

My deceased friend’s parents invited my family to their coastal Maine home for Thanksgiving. A brutal snowstorm made the drive up difficult. However, shortly after we arrived, the storm broke. We stepped out onto the back deck overlooking the craggy shoreline. As the sky cleared, a vibrant, double rainbow appeared over the ocean. My inner knowing recognized my friend. Her father locked eyes with me and said, “You know who that was, right?” It was the first time I remember feeling a strong connection to the spirit world.  

Out of the ashes of that depression, I rebuilt myself piece by piece. I felt I had a responsibility to my friend to live my best life because she couldn’t.  

I pursued the most creative, badass career I could imagine – filmmaking.  Bringing a vision to fruition satisfied my soul. On a particularly fun film set, I met my husband. We were peas in a pod – creative, fun-loving, old souls. We married and moved to Los Angeles, where I completed my Masters Degree in Film Production. LA was pure potential: anything could happen at any moment. It was also frustrating always having to wait for someone else to greenlight our dreams. We wanted more control over our destinies, especially after having our first child. After four years, we returned to the East Coast. 

Maternal love spurred another reinvention. Gradually, the free-spirited bohemian evolved into a sovereign queen in charge of her own destiny. I craved control over my schedule and financial security. I chose real estate as a vehicle, another way of helping dreams come true, but in a more tangible form. 

I learned that my business grows to the extent that I do and immersed myself in personal growth. I committed to mastering money so that I could have financial freedom, more time with my kids and pursue my passions. 

A “chance” discovery of Marconics energy healing put me on an ascension path. I quit drinking because it interfered with my clarity and energy. I became a certified Marconics practitioner although later came to understand that it was primarily to heal myself. I began writing and meditating daily. I hired a life coach to release energy blocks and limiting beliefs, overcome ego and connect to my own Higher Self. I received messages from Source that I am a vessel and a spiritual scribe. Onto these pages, I channel Source wisdom, as free of ego as possible. It's an ongoing process that will never be finished. I have learned so much and have so much left to learn.

I am a wife, mother of three, beautiful children, an energy healer and a spiritual development coach. I have largely discovered my sense of spirituality through motherhood and also through a form of energy healing called Marconics. I believe that the feminine divine is being called to rise up at this time to bring more balance to the planet and everyone on it. I enjoy writing, traveling, dancing, reading and hanging out with family and friends.
