Do you allow yourself to be guided? I first began listening to my inner guide when I was 18 years old. I was guided on a 12-year transformational journey around the world...
I left everything behind, booked a one-way ticket and never quite knew what the outcome was going to be. I had a vision that acted as my guiding light, and that vision was to heal and help others to heal, to learn and to grow so that I could be of service to humanity.
My prayer was consistent: How can I be of service? What would you have me do? Where should I go? Guide me to deeper healing, guide me to grow that I may become a better version of myself and experience authentic, beautiful relationships and happiness. Guide me to heal my physical body that I may live with high vitality and life force energy. Give me the tools I need to cleanse and calm my mind and transform my thoughts from fear to love...
I was guided to people, teachers, experiences and opportunities that served my highest and best good. I embraced it all and allowed myself to move through the ups and downs of life...it wasn't always easy, my path has been filled with opportunities for growth, which means I've had many hardships and trials in my life that have helped me to grow... I learned to take my power back and stop projecting my ego's fears onto others. My relationships taught me, stretched me and showed me me. I was preparing myself for the most beautiful, loving relationship of my life which I am now blessed to be in.
Professionally I was guided to develop and create holistic healing concepts in luxury spas in over 20 countries. I worked with and trained spa teams from many different cultures, backgrounds and beliefs. And then I was guided to come back to the United States and start giving back all that I had learned to the people I could reach in the US.
My prayer now goes deeper, to know Spirit and allow myself to be guided in all of my thoughts, words, actions and choices... that I may be of greater service in my work and be spiritually full from the inside out. I wanted to share this prayer and my intention with all of you so I created this video... I hope you enjoy it and it inspires you to invite and connect to a power greater than yourself in your own life.
And remember, all it takes is you setting an intention... My wake-up call brought me to my knees and I was ready to start listening. Sometimes we first have to hit rock bottom to get on our knees be willing to receive help and allow ourselves to be guided. Your inner guide will show up to you in a way that is unique to you. Sometimes you be lead to person that can help you like a coach, mentor, teacher or book; sometimes you will hear a soft whisper telling you what you do and where to go; sometimes you might get a "gut" feeling in your stomach when things aren't right and sometimes the messages you need to hear might come through a song you hear, a movie you watch or article you read. Simply be ready and willing to be guided, and then move forward with open eyes and an open heart knowing Spirit will guide you at the right time to the right situation.
