My transformation journey began in 2009. I was living in Orlando, Florida. My focus had been completing my Master’s degree and climbing the corporate ladder in a male dominated corporate role. As the Vice President of Human Resources of a Fortune 500 company, I had built the corporate infrastructure of the human resources department. I achieved all of my personal and professional goals. However, my life was missing love, happiness and joy! I worked long hours dedicated to my career. I did not allow myself to experience emotions in my life. I had been focused on gaining physical belongs. I had a new home, two cars, and a life filled with material things, but it was missing so much! One evening during deep reflection, I surrendered to the universe and asked for major change in my life to bring in love, happiness and joy. I did not know what that really meant, so I surrendered to all the possibilities.
The Surrender card represents my soul surrendering to the universe. I placed my life in the hands of the universe to bring into my heart and life the feelings of love, joy and happiness. I did not know how this would happen or what would occur. I had to surrender the control to something bigger than myself. I had to be accepting of the outcome and the direction that the universe chose to take in my life and future.
From 2009 – 2013, my life took a journey of the unknown. My world went through major changes. I had spent the last fifteen years on a progressive track with my career. I had taken on challenge after challenge and had always been successful in the roles that I had taken. Most individuals would have described my career as a “BIG” success story. After I surrender to the universe, the universe blocked all attempts to return to the same patterns of the past including my natural instinct of climbing the ladder again in my profession. The universe forced me to look at the world through a different lens. In order to move forward, I was forced to reinvent my life, my world and my future. I began to find a deep appreciation for the simple things in life. I embraced the relationships in my life with a deep appreciation.
The Journey card really reflects my life from 2009 – 2013. I moved back to Colorado in 2011 to live my daughter. My daughter feared for my safety. I had been evicted from home and had given away all my remaining personal items. My valuables had been sold and I was facing “homelessness.” As I made the move to Colorado, I faced major uncertainty in my life. I had no idea of where my life was going. I had struggled with getting a job in my career field. Was I supposed to go in a different direction? It was a true “journey.” It was time to look outside of the box.
From 2011 – 2013, I had been on a spiritual journey of classes and exploration. I began to look at the world from a different perspective. Our life is about experiencing love, happiness and joy. It is not about competing with the Jones family next door and what material possessions we have gained in our life. My soul was nudging me to different teachers, programs and spiritual resources. I was connecting with what life is really about. In 2013, I legally changed my name. I wanted to release my past and my struggles and to step into my spiritual plan and purpose. As I began my name change process, I experienced the release of the things in my life that no longer served me. I was connecting with my true and authentic self. I was finding that I had all the wisdom that I needed within myself. I just needed to trust myself and my divine intuition.
The Wisdom card really stands for this part of my journey. I had been raised with the idea, “Work hard and get educated, so you never have to struggle.” My family had always worked hard and had been dedicated to their career and accomplishments. During this period of time, I discovered that life is not about your profession, your career or your physical possessions. Life is more about our connection to the divine, our relationships with people and our love for life. My inner intuition was wiser than all the advice that I had ever received from others.
In 2015, I married an amazing man and my life began to shift again. My husband, Tom, would ask questions about what makes you happy? What would you love to do? What are your dreams? I had never thought about these questions before. I had always been focused on supporting my children, my family and others. He would continue to tell me to trust that he will always be there and that I will always have what I need. Tom is my hero. I have learned how to be a woman again and to allow him to be the man in our relationship. I have all that I need to be who I want to be in this life and all future lifetimes.
The Grace card is me with the Dress of the Stars. I have an amazing support team: my husband, my guides and the universe. The universe is teaching me to move away from fear of stepping into opening a spiritual center and trusting that the universe is supporting my journey and I have everything that I need to accomplish my dream of having a successful spiritual center in Littleton, Colorado.
Thank you for the opportunity of sharing my transformation journey!
