The Adventure Begins
At fours years of age, I freaked out my parents by waking them in the middle of the night to ask, “Can we talk about infinity?” I alarmed the neighbors by announcing their unknown pregnancies- and once that the father was not my neighbor’s husband! I stopped giving messages to people from those who had passed on when I saw fear and anger in their eyes instead of the happiness I thought it would bring them. I soon learned that keeping my awareness to myself might ensure I actually made it to adulthood! I was aware at a very young age that, though I was in a child’s body, I had lived many lifetimes before. Like many of you, I’ve always had extra sensitive abilities and trying to understand them eventually led me to pursue a path committed to seeking knowledge about my spiritual gifts.
I’ve survived Catholic school, drugs, sex, rock and roll, hitchhiking cross-country, anti-war demonstrations, college, a couple cults, heartbreak, betrayal, psychic experiments, being an ordained minister, therapy, UFO research, horse ownership, travel to many countries, and a career in radio and television. Each experience taught me what I needed to not only survive, but thrive.
Miraculously, I emerged from a dark and stormy childhood without winding up in a rehab clinic. Though I admit, in my frenzy to escape pain and experience the world, I tried everything! Seeking insight into what the heck was going on in my life, I read any book I could get my hands on and put myself through college taking any class that interested me (must be why it took so long). Upon graduating, I realized traditional learning wasn’t enough. I yearned for deeper answers and dove into the world of spiritual teachings, practices and wisdom traditions. Ultimately, I discovered the great secret; surprise…your answers are within you, not without.
On a quest for truth I left the Midwest to embark on a spiritual quest to travel the country on my intuition. Not that I really knew what that meant at the time. Everything I owned was stuffed into my Orange VW Bug After waving goodbye to everyone, I was off!
