Excerpts

Unsettled Spirit Chapter     “I remember one show where Oprah asked a guest, “do you think you can have it all?” I can’t remember what the guest replied but Oprah said, “I think you can, just not all at once.”  I agree with her for the most part. You see, I felt like I had it all at one point in my life; husband, kids, house, career, cars, money, traveling, etc…but of course as humans we’re always chasing for more, going back to the distractions again. Looking back at my life, I did have it all, all that I needed and what was really important; my husband and two kids, God and my health. “All” is like how each of us defines “success,” everyone has their own definition.” Awakening My Spiritual Side Chapter “...my tunnel was dark right now but the only way to make the light appear bigger was to walk towards it, there was light at the end as she indicated. I also had to work on getting rid of the negative energy in and around me, this included letting go of fear. What people fail to recognize is that fear can be inhibiting and destructive. My soul was weakened and not yet properly flourished and equipped therefore allowed for fear to consume me. Fear came in all forms of elements, whether it was the reality of defining a new life that’s normal to the fear of the unfamiliarity of opening up to another side of me, my spiritual side. My spiritual side was always there like a seed in the dirt but it needed to be fertilized and nourished in order for it to grow.  Now was the time for growth to help rebuild my foundation...... I’ve always had an inclination within me that I truly had a purpose in life to fulfill. Some may say it was just a reaction to my traumatic experience and part of grieving, but I disagree.  That inclination was always there even before becoming a widow. Maybe this traumatic event just lit the final spark and ignited my inner reserves. Yes others may need to hit “rock bottom” for their shell to crack but for me it was just this final spark. My goal to explore my purpose further grew stronger as I became more in tuned spiritually and connected to God. Was it a challenge, of course, my background is in engineering, so how much more logical can one get? On the other hand, my faith was always there therefore it wasn’t a complete struggle for me. To look back at all the atrocities I faced in my life, only the divine can intervene and either walk me through it or carry me.” “I firmly believe that anyone can obtain their full potential once they’re willing to accept the spiritual awareness. Start exploring, discovering and embracing the change that could transform you to your fullest potential as God views you.” Relationships Chapter “I was questioning myself, “why do we always let our minds overpower our heart and soul?” I’ve been able to heighten my spiritual awareness and my acceptance has allowed me to recognize that my heart was not settled with my mind.  This goes back to my previous chapter on Spiritual Awakening, why are we so disconnected with our souls? We exercise our bodies, we educate our minds but what about our souls?   We're trained to shut down our feelings from our heart to the point where it's desensitized, thinking (from our minds only) that our heart is just hippy nilly feelings without thought and hence validity. When we follow our heart/soul it has to be on its own terms and time (organically). The mind wants to overpower and create timelines, expectations, confusion, fear, etc...So what do we do to avoid and/or address this confusion and conflict?” “We allow our lives to be defined by boundaries but where do these boundaries come from? They come from society, our religious beliefs or what our brains tell us. We can either stay within the boundaries as long as our hearts are truthfully content or either deviate from these boundaries when we’re willing to risk the consequences or change the boundaries ourselves. Do we draw these boundary lines in the sand or build a wall? Sand can wither but the wall will block all other aspects that can foster; friendship, business, relationships, and more.       .....It’s like going against what’s just natural that God gave us (our intuition and our souls speaking) yet at the same time we were being tested by what’s “right” and “wrong” by human standards.”
