Life wasn’t always a merry-go-round of happy rainbows and unicorns for me.

A lot of people look at me and think I’ve never had a down day. But that’s because happiness is my commitment, not because it was given to me on a silver spoon.

Far from it. Not to get into a trauma-share, I had to take care of myself growing up because my mother was simply not up to the task. I had to determine my own direction because what my mother was telling me just didn’t feel good. It turned out she had multiple personality disorder so it was a good thing I learned my own way. 

But I will tell you I learned that nobody was going to give me happiness and I wasn’t going to get anywhere playing the victim either. I had to make my own happiness.

In fact I’ve always felt like I was trying to break free from things that didn’t feel right, and run toward things that did feel right, making my way like Dorothy down the Yellow Brick Road. There was a wicked witch threatening to burn me and my friends to the ground, and poppies luring me to sleep, and even a bunch of flying monkeys trying to take away my dog, but I wasn’t going to let these challenges keep me from my own emerald green Oz and my horse of many colors.

Along the journey to happiness I noticed that good things happened for me and others when I followed the good feeling notions that came to me…what I learned people called “intuition.” There were many ways I learned to follow the signs that came to me to help myself, my family members, co-workers and friends. I took the part of me that people said was, “too sensitive,” and turned it into my super power.

What evolved was the ability to consciously feel what is going on with other people, and it became a playground to me to open people’s awareness. All I had to do was trust the messages and feelings I received and share them with my people, and their results were magical!

Like the friend who…literally paved her path with glitter after she decided to stop diminishing her own light while waiting for other people to catch up to her intuitive speed and started honoring what made her truly happy, which was to implement her brilliant ideas as fast as she received them + shine as brightly as she wanted.

And the woman who...decided that ending her life was not the only option, that she was worthy of happiness and to pursue her passions and big dreams, that her life was valuable and worth living and that she had much to share with others from her life lessons.

And the family member who….stopped feeling the pressure to be perfect, worrying so hard about letting others down, judging herself for her thoughts and emotions and instead allowed herself to enjoy her own life more, to feel what she was feeling and give herself kindness, understanding, and credit for all her achievements, to appreciate the amazing person she was.

Wayne Dyer said when you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change. What I have discovered is that if you change the way you feel about something, everything changes. 

You’re not limited to any circumstance. So if something is showing up as a negative, the law of opposites says the positive is right on the other side. I want people to get a glimpse of what could unfold for them when they look beyond their own limitations and let their soul soar.

For most of my life I felt like a misfit, and I hid a lot of myself. I spent so many years feeling embarrassed about the sensitive part of myself. I tried to hide it, shut it down and pretend I was someone I was not. I took on other people’s energy without even realizing it, believing all along I was unable to control my emotions.

But when I started sharing my message, what I thought, how I felt, and about how my sensitivity was a powerful way to help people, that’s when people started coming to me. I began to listen to my intuitive voice and trust it, which led me to make better decisions that enhanced my relationships, path, and life.

This epiphany about my sensitivity + what made me feel different, made me wonder if there were others who were struggling, burying their emotions, putting on a strong face while feeling a mess inside. Most likely, blaming their sensitivity, or what they believed was wrong with them.

What if what you think is wrong about you is what’s really right about you?

I wondered if they were taking the same approach I used to. Over-achieving, over-extending, over-tending to everyone else and over-committing my time, energy and focus. All in an effort to feel good enough.

When I stepped out to help people from a place of power, I found the breakthrough I had been searching for.

I know how lonely and isolating it is to be so different from others in your family and community, how it can feel like nobody in the world understands you. 

That’s why I do the work I do. I wanted to share what I learned along the way. I created a global community of conscious creators, supporting each other to come out, shed the layers of whatever is not working, and have fun on the journey to fulfillment. 

I created a life that is literally unicorns and rainbows, it’s happy, fun, drama-free. It’s not that contrast doesn’t show up in my life, but when it does, I feel resilient, confident, and energized to take that negative energy and transform it into something positive.
