ligning with my overeign mbodiment was the rue ustle.
At the time, while I was running a successful house music blog, interviewing the biggest DJs from around the world, living the life of any 23 year old's dream, there was a deep void I couldn't bypass any longer. If I wanted to live the life I always desired, I was going to have to get to work and do the REAL work.
Growing up with severe depression and PTSD, I was always on a mission to do my best to shine my light wherever I was, but truth was, I was in such pain. I had deep, unprocessed trauma, found myself in abusive relationships, and even found myself calling a suicide hotline my senior year of college. All in all, I was a hott mess who needed a reset.
Giving it all up, I devoted my heart and soul to embody the most authentic and truest version of me. Truth was, I couldn't serve others wholeheartedly if I didn't first learn how to serve myself, my needs, and more importantly, my inner child first. I had to learn how to fill my cup, heal the wounds of my past and my lineage, while learning how to best honor and develop my boundaries and overall energy if I wanted to experience true success in the Golden Era and my business.
Along the way, I learned that if you want to succeed in overcoming changing times, you too must evolve and shift. That means getting radically honest about old habits, to rewrite stories from the past that are still running the show, and to do the deep work to heal the wounds and childhood traumas once and for all.
Like many others, I ingested everything I could about all things spirituality and fell for the "love and light" trap of deep spiritual bypassing and false light.
You have to understand something, many people who are just embarking on the spiritual path are doing so because they hit a rock bottom. Where I was, well... while I had low self-worth and confidence in myself, I had a whole lot of faith that I was going to get through what I was navigating through. With all my trauma and wounds exposed, there was a part of me that still had no clue where I belonged. What I knew most of all was that I was ready to finally break free from the shackles so that I could reclaim and embody my sovereignty once and for all.
After years of visiting healers around the world, reading hundreds of books, partaking in countless medicine journeys, and all the certifications and courses around, it wasn't until I stopped looking for answers outside of myself and started to learn to look within and trust myself and my intuition that I was able to finally ascend and align to my full, authentic power.
During my college years, my Marketing Professor at Chapman University anointed me with the name "The Marketing Machine." It wasn't until I found myself hitting rock bottom after a seizure that it was evident that my passion for brand development and soulful strategy always reigned supreme and was ready to be unleashed unlike ever before. Essentially, what kept me moving and going during those dark night of the soul moments was that I knew I had a massive mission to fulfill here on Earth and I wanted to help those who knew they too had a bigger purpose and mission to fulfill.
in 2012, my pup Bud and I were struck by lightning. yep, you read that right.
