In short, my childhood sucked. I suspect for many of you reading this, you can relate. One thing I’ve discovered over the years is that those of us who are here to make a big impact in the world, also have a big, painful story we’ve needed to work through. We were different from those around us and sometimes that really hurt. One thing I know for sure is that we weren’t meant to blend in – we were meant to stand out. Leaders can’t lead when they are part of the crowd!
My story is your story with an uncommon extreme.
I was born in a secret religious cult in Montana where polygamy, obedience, fear and coercion dictated my life. As a little girl I had a gift for understanding spiritual concepts beyond what my parents and religion were teaching me. Out of their own fear I was taught to deny my gifts. My parents and those around me believed that my free-spirit and strong-will needed to be broken by whatever means necessary. After years of suffering and long battle with suicide, I escaped into the real world – a world I had been taught my entire life to fear.
My childhood experiences had left me feeling broken and resentful until I found the process to mend my life and reconnected with my true-self.
Mending my past resulted in creating a life I had only once imagined. As I worked my process I came to realize that my story and understanding is also meant to serve others. Those principles and insights I now share through my personal blogs, books and programs.
Throughout my adult life I wanted nothing to do with spirituality of any kind – I was almost an atheist. Following a mid-life crisis that I now call my midlife rebirth, I had several almost indescribable experiences. In my awaking I discovered that I have a gift for spiritual counseling, inner knowing and communicating with non-physical energies. I was in refusal of these gifts until I could no longer deny who I am here to be.
Now I get to use all my gifts, hard earned wisdom and a lifetime of skills to assist the awakening and evolution of humanity.
