Since childhood, I have always been a natural healer and an empathic and intuitive person. Overall, I’ve always easily sensed another’s feelings and very often their soul’s need for comfort. I spent a lot of time in those earlier years out in nature, where I experienced great comfort in simple communion with the wisdom of the elements. In my professional career I carried on an aspect of my healing nature and my deep caring for people and became a Social Worker.

Over the years, I recognized the value of listening to our intuition and consciously chose to develop more of my heart or “love-centered” spiritual/energy gifts – gifts I know we all naturally possess. I took various spiritual and energy healing studies in the many communities I lived in.

In more recent years, I also began to realize that my love for writing was really another avenue to express my heart and feel the same kind of nourishing energies I’d grown up with in nature - energies that comfort and connect our human family, the animal kingdom and all of life that surrounds us.

“... without a doubt the heart is an inexhaustible source of love, insight, and intelligence that far surpasses that of the mind.”
- Baptist de Pape, The Power of the Heart: Finding Your True Purpose in Life

I ultimately believe in the strength and wisdom of our hearts and how this energy can infuse and invoke our minds’ creativity and brilliance.

When we take time to open our hearts with gentle means, we can better hear our own intuitive voice. This inner spiritual guidance can provide each of us with specific messages that individually, we will understand. As we listen and allow ourselves to be guided, we will receive the help we need when we ask – help that comes unexpectedly at times, to further assist us to heal, strengthen and to accomplish our goals. Ultimately, with patience and persistence we will be shown our pathway to fulfill our heart and soul’s true purpose in this lifetime. You never know how close you are to a breakthrough, so never give up on your heart’s wishes. Stay the course.
