Hello beautiful soul,
I am writing this letter to you from Costa Rica as it’s raining and thundering (quite a shift from California!!).
I am here for a month on a new adventure, and turning the page on a new chapter in my life.
There comes a time in our lives where the old mechanisms and ways of being don’t work any longer.
Where life as you know it is over.
Where you are asked to grow and stretch into the next edges of you.
Where you are invited to play in a new arena, and the next expression of living as your essence.
Where what you knew as your routine of life must get shaken up, not because there’s something wrong, but rather as to assist you in living truer and more as you.
If you’ve been here with me via this community for a while, it’s no secret here that this past year has been a big one for me. One that has asked me to take the next steps on my very own Essence’tially You path.
August 6th marked a year for me of making one of the biggest life-changing decisions, to turn more toward my soul’s path, that would change the course of my life as I knew it.
Where this one decision I made was a domino effect for so many other choices I’d be asked to make in service of living from my soul’s knowing.
It’s been a year of surrender for me, trust on massive levels, grieving… so much grieving, letting go, being in solitude (a lot!), healing my body, being my own best friend, pausing, being more still and going slower, releasing perfection, restructuring my business and offerings, adventure, and listening deeply to the call within me rather than my logic.
It’s been intense, bittersweet, internal, expansive, and so many times I felt so unsteady and questioning myself, yet I continued to face the direction of coming closer and more home to me.
And while the journey continues, I am slowly starting to feel this new foundation I’ve been building. I’m slowly starting to feel happiness again in a way I have not for a long time. I am starting to feel excited again about what comes next.
I’ve chosen to keep the content of the decision/catalyst of a year ago private for now, although I imagine one day soon I’ll be ready to share more in detail because I feel in my heart part of my journey is to share my healing and evolution with others too to help bring the light to your path.
And so here I am taking this next big adventure. I’m in Costa Rica for a month. Being here so far is food for my soul. I appreciate this country and its roots so much. I appreciate being in the new potential of life. It’s good for my brain and body to be in a different environment where it’s stretching me in many ways. I feel myself coming alive again.
And so why am I sharing this with you?
Because if you’re here you know one of my passions in life is this work, of supporting you in living more and more into the edges of your own essence and true nature, and my hope is that by me sharing my journey it will inspire you in yours. And to also show my humanity, and my own process of growth, and that the journey is cyclical, not linear.
Wherever you find yourself on this August morning (or whenever you are reading this) I hope you remember this…
- You are worthy of the life you desire…
- Even if you don’t know the path, I see you taking the first step to reclaim your full self…
- It’s okay to be scared and still take action and move closer and closer to living as your true nature and creating the life you want…
- Your value isn’t in how much you do, your beingness is of such value…
- You don’t need to know all the steps to take the leap. In fact, you won’t know all the steps ahead of time, and that’s part of living from a place of emergence rather than control…
- Life is a series of ebbs and flows, and there’s nothing wrong with you if you are in the next expression of learning and restructuring…
- And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance, I hope you dance (whatever that means to you).
As you’re receiving this, I am already unplugged. I will be taking, for the first time in my career, a mini sabbatical for the next 3 ½ weeks. I’ve just completed my 12 month women’s group program, and made a very hard yet necessary decision to complete a 9-year cycle of leading group programs at the moment to take space to allow this cycle to be harvested, and to sit in the space of allowing the next creations for what groups and retreats want to get recreated from a space of pause and reflection.
I plan to be back online in September and I look forward to sharing more with you then, and I imagine bringing in new insights, sharings, inspiration, and new possibilities for you to be supported.
In the meantime, if you are interested in working with me, I do have a few private client spots open and I’d love to connect with you upon my return if that interests you, and you’d like support in living even more and more from your true nature and essence. You can click on the link HERE to set up a call with me, and my assistant will set that up for you now, so we are ready to go when I return (these are virtual sessions).
I want to end this note by saying thank you. Thank you for being here. For being a part of this community. Whether we know each other well or not, I am grateful for your presence here. It’s a gift to me to get to have this time together, even if it’s just through these newsletters.
I look forward to continuing to evolve together, and to bringing new possibilities and expressions to our time here together as the months evolve.
And so I will sign off now by saying what they say in Costa Rica…
Pura Vida :),
