"We don't grow old, we grow - exponentially."
My story is a 60-year crash course through all human emotions in one little lifetime; feeling and understanding them fast and furiously.
I took on 12 different personas in different countries, diving fully into successes and failures and coming back up to emotional and spiritual highs of magic and consciousness. Climbing up a deep, dark, and hilarious spiral, my journey floated in and out of awareness.
I was a good girl and a rebel, a Catholic and an Atheist, a mother and a warrior, a priestess and a punk, a martyr and a goddess, a boss and a waitress, rich and poor, hilariously happy and terribly sad.
My spiritual explorations weaved itself through decades and entailed breath work, play therapy, psychodrama, guided imagery, symbolic modeling, active imagination, movement therapy, dream work, role playing, Gestalt therapy, sand tray, journal therapy, archetypal psychology and regression therapy, Numerology, Astrology, Tarot readings, Afro Haitian dancing, and shamanic journeys with Native American leaders.
My professional credentials include my MA in literature and sociology, a traditionally published self help book, being a professional journalist for 7 years, 2 years of art therapy college, 7 start up years and my event planning company Eco and the Princess.
On a very practical level I coached close to a thousand wedding couples and families in their wedding planning process; stress, anxiety, melt downs, money issues, fights between moms and daughters, Bridezillas syndroms, even doubts about the love of their lives... You name it, I was there for them. As a journalist I interviewed hugely different characters, always using my intuition to get to their truth and their best stories.
I had to see, feel and taste a crazy bunch of experiences before I could let go of my limiting beliefs. Feisty like a terrier, I was hanging on to blame, shame and guilt. Too old was just another sabotage of owning my essence.
I had to see, feel, and taste this crazy bunch of experiences before I felt ready to share my discoveries and to intuitively understand and assist others. There’s a huge difference in having felt and just having theorized about things.
I was recently asked if I am a fashion stylist. I'm a life stylist, I thought.
