WHAT DO a Racecar Driver, Sailboat Captain, Fashion Model, Modern Dancer, Realtor, Mom, Shaman, Entrepreneur, Writer, Reiki Master, Astrologer, Medical Intuitive, Lifelong student, Loving Teacher, and Spiritual Guide have in common? Me. It has been a full, terrible, wonderful, challenging, and exciting life.
Living in many worlds consciously I understand the journey of life, relationships, love, success, spiritual awakening, and living it in our everyday world. I have been blessed with great love in my life and challenged beyond belief.
From the time I was a child I had deep questions and lived the answers even when they did not agree with what I was taught in the family and culture. Very sensitive and aware and unafraid to explore, living true to me made all of the difference. Amidst the challenges, there were great friends, guides, and teachers. I knew the world and her people were confused and hurting unnecessarily, and I wanted to find the clear truth, live it, and teach others too.
My father was in and out of critical condition from before I was born and we did not know if he would be alive any night, or morning, many days, weeks, and months each year. He died at the age of forty-eight.
In 1967, when I was fifteen, our family doctor told me I would not live as long as my father did and that made me question everything and changed my life. I was very sickly in similar ways and decided then and there that I was going to live a long, healthy, happy life and figure it out which started the journey to Be The Medicine.
SHARING THE JOURNEY I began teaching mothers how to heal and assist their families with health and wellness and behavior problems in the later 1970’s with nutrition and natural methods.
At the same time, I also raced Porsches on Watkins Glen, Pocono, Lime Rock, and Bridgehampton Road Racing tracks on weekends for six years. I was a natural and this gave me many opportunities to test myself and develop important life skills. It has taken the same courage it took to step into that fireproof racing gear as it has taken me to live as a Shaman, Healer, and Sage in these times.
I birthed two babies and studied yoga and meditation, astrology, healing, whole foods eating and more during that period of my life. By the mid-eighties, I had divorced, completed another degree, and began my real estate career while studying and practicing living spirituality and healing.
I found my life purpose when supporting my family as a top Realtor. I was a natural at business and helping people, and figured out how to manifest for everyone. My success in real estate came from living wisdom in business and assisting people in balance with taking care of my family.
In 1992 I discovered quite by surprise, my calling as a Shaman, from this time on, so much more opened up. Some of my greatest experiences and studies came during those years and I began teaching Shamanism and Reiki and life’s wisdom to many as I sold homes and assisted people on their journey as homeowners.
In 1999 I went to full-time healing and teaching and writing. I had assistants and a housekeeper so I could be focused and explored even more. Each time I opened to something big, I found another missing piece and asked for the answer and followed where that led me.
I studied with renowned teachers, healers, Shamans, Gurus, Masters and many others in many disciplines around the world looking for complete health, spiritual mastery, and living it now. It has been a wild journey and full of love and pain and choosing love and happiness and health all the way.
I could have stopped at any point to make money and build a larger business where I was, and yet I knew the greater gifts to be shared required me to continue to study as I taught and healed. My focus has been to make it real for all of us to live as the Masters of every tradition have always taught. My search for unity and oneness brought all of the pieces together after over a decade of integration and refinement as I continued to work with many.
Letting go of the world to live in it has been quite the trip. Discovering the highest truth and deepest love and translating it into simple, logical, common sense practices and ways for those who are open has been a daily journey for decades knowing this is my life purpose.
After my youngest daughter Lisa died in 2008, I deepened the journey by living it through that life-changing trauma and so many more that followed. I was back at square one and lived in the tender space where many join me looking for help, which helped me refine the work even more. I saw the work I had developed with new eyes and a heart that was broken open, yet again. I was grateful for all the wisdom and tools I gathered to be able to survive through difficult times and focused on thriving.
During the past ten years, this deep journey led me to heal in ways I always knew was somehow possible and rarely achieved. I am always awed and surprised and grateful for each subtle and huge awakening and healing, and encourage the same in everyone. After being stripped to the hollow bone, life is new and clear and fun. Love is all there is in real ways.
Each one of us has our own experience and I love to assist people to discover, deepen, and love their way through their unique journey. It is exciting to watch and participate as we are all waking up to higher possibilities and realities.
CHOP WOOD CARRY WATER In 2015 my oldest daughter asked me to bring my real estate skills and wisdom to help her build her business in Title Insurance. Coming out of a very deep spiritual space and back into the world part-time has been another rebirthing experience allowing me to bring all of my pieces back together.
It was not easy and yet it was. Living spiritually in a material world is natural to me. This experience was my next awakening journey, and quite complete. I have been working with her as I continue to work with individuals and groups and write and develop the wholeness and more clearly defined pieces of Be The Medicine.
Living in business brings more depth to all aspects of wholeness, healing and spiritual living. It has also brought new perspectives and understandings that have informed the work and what people are looking for and need.
Wisdom comes from living it wherever our life takes us. Being spiritual is integrated with everything and makes life better. Even when we feel like things are over, life offers us new beginnings.
For over three decades I have been leading thousands of people of all ages in healing and spiritual awakening and living it. Training healers and awakening innate gifts have also been an important focus. It is always exciting for me to see past students sharing their special offerings with the world.
Live your spirit and soul, heal, become, and enjoy. Problems become solution as we straighten out the illusion and confusion and go for it together. Our life is our journey. I love helping people make Magic out of their life. We all have it. let’s live it together.
