I vowed to stand within my heart in all of my experiences. In that moment, I learned the value in the willingness to allow myself to feel my true essence and to be led gently from there.
I found my deepest peace in turning down the volume around me and within just enough so that I could feel my own quiet prayer. And so I always returned to this.
I held a me that didn’t need to try to be a certain way. And though it felt like a risky move, I held on just a little longer and trusted just a little more deeply. And I saw that I was that me. I was that Love.

And there was a beautiful silence within my heart I wouldn’t ever try to fill again.
Life continued to unfold with all of its challenges and pain and beauty. Questions like Who am I and the unshakeable determination to keep showing up became more important than any one insight or set of explanations — pulling me each time back a little more into Self — not deeper down into thought, but straight through all if it to its core — where I sensed intuitively and found great relief in knowing this as my […]
