Q. What has been the most challenging part of your path?
A. The most challenging part was growing up in a family not on a spiritual path. My calling to leave the family was so great that I would sleepwalk at night. I often woke up in the middle of the field in back of my house and would wait until it became light to return home. I was too scared to walk in the dark. While I didn’t remember sleepwalking, I would remember the visions I received. When I finally left home to live with a family friend, I dreamt that half her daughter’s body was being eaten by cancer. In the dream, her daughter was calling to me and I couldn’t find her. I woke up pounding on the neighbor’s door and when they answered, I was so scared that I ran, tripped, and broke my ankle. The daughter died later that year, on my birthday. No one knew she was sick, as I had not told anybody about my dream.
Q. What changes are you noticing about your life and the world?
A. Life becomes easier and lighter as I follow my passion and do what brings me joy. When I live my joy, I am able to get out of the way and be of greater service. I’m a people opener. I connect people to their inner genius, that part of themselves that knows exactly who they are and where they want to go.
The world has become a softer, gentler, safer place because of this connection. I know I’m going to be shown the changes I need to make so that they will happen with grace. I also know we are very young as a culture, like a baby horse trying to walk after being born. We stumble, fall, and learn something each time we get back up.
