My niece says I have earned an honorary PhD in self-help. After a significant experience of loss and desire for change, I longed for something but lacked the wisdom or strategies to get out of the patterns that no longer served me. I was spending countless hours reading, workshopping, and planning big life changes. Once I connected with a soul friend and guide, the work I was doing had traction. I was in flow with the process. It took less effort and the benefits were more immediate.
Space began to open up for me to hear my inner voice and see the opportunities all around me. More guidance and more effective strategies continued to appear and I was mindful enough and supported enough to discern how to best use my time and energy. This is the space I maintain through practice, intention, and attention to what matters most to me.
