Hi! I'm an empath in a journey of embracing sensitivity. As a professional intuitive, I support others in their knowing of worth and full expression.
Like many empaths, my sensitivity had been misdirected in childhood. The truest part of me had learned to look for safety instead of joy. I had learned continual sensing of what might be wrong. This is victimhood.
These patterns or beliefs opened up & became my teachers. How? You know how we refer to ourselves as parts, "a part of me just couldn't..." or "the artistic part of me longed to..." Relationship with oneself comes from inner unity. As I integrated unconscious parts, my response to life changed.
Trauma is a catch-all word to describe suppression of energy to fit in or survive. Ninety percent of our limiting beliefs are not logical. They are held as body-memory and can be inherited in our DNA. We can essentially absorb & re-radiate a parent's anxiety. And unknowingly weave it into our own life experience. Unresolved trauma can be inherited. Re-knowing this energy has been crucial for my happiness and I want this for everyone.
In the unraveling of my conditioning, I placed myself under the influence of mentors, certifications & practice groups. These included yoga (with trauma training), Jungian psychology, Thomas Keating's psycho-spiritual teachings, Maurice Nicoll's psychological commentaries, nonduality, metaphysical explorations at the Monroe Institute, and intuitive development with various teachers. I spent years in a community attending inquiry sessions where we shared psycho-spiritual experiences. I'm a graduate of Energy Medicine Squared at the Monroe Institute and a Reiki Master. This has been my exploration; none of this equals the power of presence.
All of this is a long way from my original background in Environmental Science. As a kid raised on a farm in Canada, I wanted to help the earth. Now I work with our inner environment, with the same intent to support harmony with this planet one person at a time.
