I smile when remembering a segment of the spiritual seeker I quickly became in early adolescence. I would ask older friends for rides to yet another religious group so I could interview its members to see if there was a fit for me. Although, not really knowing how “a fit” would feel, I somehow imagined a flash of light would descend and I would know that was it!
I mostly felt that I was on a long journey, seeking something I couldn’t quite describe by using the words in my vocabulary at the time. Yet, there was an inner knowing from the “Little Me”, the same “little me” who wanted to be a psychologist long before she knew the correct spelling or what was involved in that profession.
The route to the realization of this childhood dream took many twists and turns, with life experiences bringing actions that turned me away from realizing this destination. An early arrival of a traditional family with children brought a focus of the heart and mind that wasn’t originally aspired to. Inherent within this segment of life were traumatic experiences which both impeded and accelerated the original professional desire, by encouraging the emerging "wounded healer “to seek to heal.
Soon followed immersions into multiple studies and learning programs that required deep personal involvement and introspective transformational process work, while simultaneously embodying the principles and practices of these approaches to healing.
A commitment was established and is honored to this day. I remain committed to finding light for this journey by planting the seeds of spiritual evolution deeply into the soil of my existence.
