I heard a thought, for a lack of a better way to describe it, stating, “if you can’t take your distractions away, then I will take them away for you,” and suddenly, the world shifted and everything became more clear to me. I instinctively knew that my life would never be the same.
My whole life I played small. I taught myself that I was dumb, I knew nothing, and I needed to rely on others to guide me. I now see that there is not one human out there with a rulebook for life, and just because people have important titles like father, or teacher, it still doesn’t mean they know how I should lead my life.
Every one of us has our own navigation system (our intuition), and although we can be a part of a community of inspiration, it is up to our own individual daily decisions that determines how we live our unique lives. For 35 years, I convinced myself I knew nothing and I must follow the words of others, and now I see that if I quiet my mind and sit in stillness, answers come to me on their own accord.
When my awakening happened and I was gifted with overflowing self-love, self-compassion, and an awareness that I needed to turn up the volume on my life, for I was more powerful than I ever let myself believe. Before the accident, I had none of these traits. So, I traveled to a local yoga festival, where I knew no one, for a weekend of camping and activities, to allow myself to be 100% me, and this is where I found my tribe.
Every person I met at the camping retreat also experienced an awakening of their own. Although none of our stories were the same, we all had the same feelings surrounding this awareness that life would be different for us.
At this retreat I allowed my effervescence to come out to meet the world; I danced big, I sang big, and I did not allow myself to think of how others may be judging me. This is Kimberly, and I am who I am, and the experience was more powerful than I ever imagined it could be. It is evident to me that I have an inner Goddess that has been trying to get out for decades.
It is my purpose to help girls, women, and feminine energies recognize and encourage their own inner Goddess energy to flourish; It is my purpose to assist others to love themselves and to cherish and care for the body they have been bestowed. My new motto in life is to love yourself so much it pours over onto the universe. Wouldn’t it be grand if we all did this? What would the world look like then?
Envisioning myself eventually residing in a woman’s retreat center, I see myself as a LMT providing women with healing touch. Prior to my life shift, I never paid attention to my body’s requests for more hydration, more stretching, more love, and more exercising, but now I do, and now I see how important our love and care for our bodies are.
I want to help others become aware that our body, our emotions, our situational events, our self-care is all one in the same, and that it is imperative to keep our thoughts, actions, and environment in tune with our desires to fulfill our life quests. I want to give love and energy and inspiration, and I have found that human touch is one of the fastest ways to get this task accomplished.
I took away all my “distractions” including credit cards, alcohol, cigarettes, and other mindless tasks and I stopped attempting to escape from my life. Spending the last 6 months examining my past choices, I see that I want to surround myself with like minded individuals who lift and inspire others as well. Humans take on the energy of people we surround ourselves with, and entering a field of other healers feels like the most perfect next step for me; I start January 3, 2017.
Because I left a marriage and career that was not in alignment with my spiritual path, I have been left momentarily without abundance. It is my intention that with the MTSI scholarship monies, I will be gifted with the energy of financial abundance once again and be able to become financially independent again and continue to gift others with my healing touch.
It is my belief that I will become a healer, working primarily with feminine energies, teaching others how to gift ourselves with love, time, and touch, and how to adore our inner compass and the vessel that moves us. Thank you for this opportunity.
