Have you ever felt like life’s gotten out of control? Like you’re stuck running on a treadmill 100 miles an hour and you can’t get off?
In my early 30’s, my husband and I were both working full-time, raising two young children, and racing from one activity to the next. Life felt like it was spinning out of control. I couldn’t slow it down. I was questioning, “What’s the purpose of all of this? Why are we here? There has to be more meaning to life than this.”
Then one day I received a call from my husband informing me that his employment had abruptly ended. We were shocked because he’d just received an award for outstanding performance the previous week.
In retrospect, this shocking incident turned out to be a transformational event. It caused our treadmill to come to a screeching halt. We evaluated our priorities and became more intentional about how we spent our time personally and professionally. It was the beginning of my journey to seek my purpose.
I’ve always been interested in “information.” My favorite thing to do as a child was to play school and be the teacher because that meant I’d have the Teacher’s Edition that contained the answers to the questions. I still have my favorite Teacher’s Edition book that my grandmother used. I LOVED that book because the answers are in RED!
My interest in “information” led me to a career in Information Technology. My role was to implement software solutions that improved efficiency, streamlined operations, and provided data to the organization’s leaders to make informed decisions.
Over the years, my interest in “information” has merged with my passion for spirituality and holistic healing. I discovered the Akashic Records, which is an energetic database that contains information about how our souls are designed. It’s like having the Teacher’s Edition with the answers to questions about our lives printed in RED!
The Akashic Records helped me discover my soul’s gifts and live my purpose.
I discovered that one of my primary gifts is “to create” and “to convert ideas and visions into physical reality.” When I look back on my life, I see how this gift has naturally been expressed through sewing, crocheting, designing and building two homes, creating beautiful spaces, and scrapbooking.
I’ve used this information to customize a vocation that utilizes my primary gifts. I live my purpose by helping spiritual seekers make informed decisions about their lives by tapping into the wisdom of their souls. As a result, they’re provided with the tools to create a vision for a passionate, purpose-filled life and then convert it into reality.
