I spent 18 years of my adult life in Germany after my teaching degree in Edinburgh. I got married and had my 3 children amidst a roller coaster of life experiences that stretched me beyond belief: these included several car crashes and major illnesses which brought me back down to earth with a bump, tuning in to what was really important in life. It was just after my father died of cancer that I packed up and moved to Glastonbury to start on a spiritual quest which I continue to this day.
I realised really early on that my heart and calling lay well beyond conventional teaching and so I began to focus more on working closely with other people. I took several courses that gave me the skills to coach others, facilitate self development workshop as well as training in alternative therapies and hands on healing. Meditation had become a daily practice, one I hugely valued due to the clarity and inner guidance it gave me. I loved the depths to which my guidance sessions with other women were taking me and felt very blessed to be able to do this kind of work.
But the huge turning point came for me when I became very ill for a long period in Ireland and was given what I like to call â€˜a second chanceâ€™. My weight plummeted, I had terrifying panic attacks and body pains and I lost the will to live. And yet when I hit the floor, there was nowhere else to go and nothing else to do but surrender.Â Â Sometimes it takes those dark nights of the soul to really waken us up to see and appreciate why we are here.
An amazing experience during this time brought me back with a jolt and gave me the chance to affirm that I did indeed love my life, that I had a mission to fulfil and there was work to be done.
Looking back I am so grateful to know that I was able to go to the depths of my terror and return again with renewed strength. It has given me so much more trust and certainty that there is nothing in this life that we cannot overcome. For the truth of the matter is that your destiny lies completely within your own hands. When you come to realise that it is alone your choices that determine what turn your life takes, things begin to take on a totally new meaning and you start to discover the amazing power you have within you.
Today I do individual sessions with people who come to me for spiritual guidance, sharing on heart level. I do readings for them them and intuitively ask questions that open up areas they feel trapped in. It’s so easy to get caught up in the ‘lies’ we weave around ourselves and reflecting on that with another helps to turn the light on again.
If you’d like to book a session, please contact me and let’s do some work together. It’s time to let your light shine again.
