Today is my birthday, and I’m so happy to be sharing it with you! I am so grateful for all that has happened in my life. There have been some wonderful times and some tough times, and I’m grateful for them all. I’m looking forward to the year ahead. Every year gets better and better as I continue to follow the voice of my Spirit. Who knew this carrot-head baby would living such an amazing, joy-filled life?
I was a pudgy baby. But according to my mom, I was also a very happy baby 🙂 Here are some random facts about me:
My favorite movie of all time is Dirty Dancing. I watched it for the first time when I was a little girl, and I’ve seen it at least 100 times since then. I thought I was going to marry Patrick Swayze, but then I grew up and married my wonderful love, Mark.
Growing up, I wanted to be a Broadway Star. I studied dance and music in college, but there was still something missing. Eventually, I became a clinical hypnotherapist, and that led to my career as a psychic medium and spiritual teacher, which brings me more joy and fulfillment than anything I could have imagined.
Before becoming a psychic medium, I was a ballroom dance teacher, worked in the emergency room, and in the neonatal intensive care unit.
I started meditating and talking with my Guides when I was in middle school. I found a book on talking to Angels, and that’s how I met Gabriel, my Guardian Angel.
My mom has always been my best friend. My husband is my best friend too! You can read the magical story of how I met my husband, how he proposed, and see our wedding photos by starting with How I Met the Love of My Life.
The most influential author in my life is Wayne Dyer. Watching his talks on PBS as a child helped me get started on this spiritual path.
I’ve learned that following my internal voice will lead me to the most joyful reality for myself, even if it seems impossible or illogical at first.
I’ve learned that I choose whether to be happy or grumpy with each circumstance. It doesn’t matter what the situation is, I can find the joy and the blessing in it and choose to focus on that.
I love bright, happy colors, and I don’t wear black. In our home, almost every wall is a different bright, happy color. Everyone who comes in says, “Wow, this is such a happy home!” Yep, it is 🙂
I’m a vegetarian, which was something my Guides led me to do when I was going through hypnotherapy training. However, if I’m absolutely starving and someone puts a piece of bacon or barbeque in front of me, I’ll eat it! The switch to being a vegetarian happened almost instantly. I was talking with my Guides about it, telling them I don’t know how I can stop eating meat because I like it. They said, referring to the chicken sandwich I was eating, “That is flesh,” and instantly I stopped having a taste for meat. I couldn’t finish my sandwich, and even though I tried eating meat for several days, I just couldn’t any more. For weeks, my husband and I had nachos and salad to eat, because we didn’t know how to make any other vegetarian meals! Over time, we’ve come to loooooove learning new recipes and cooking delicious, healthy vegetarian meals together.
Oh! My husband had just made me breakfast in bed for my birthday! Gotta go! I hope you enjoy this beautiful day – My Birthday!!! I’m sure I will!
Lots of love to you!
