I could keep going. As could you, if you were to use words to represent what you are. That is the best words can do. Helpful for sure, but the real thing?
What is real? What I perceive to be real is the ever-present, unchanging part of us, our essence. My essence. Your essence. That part of us that makes us real. I call this part the authentic self.
It knows what is in our best interest, what is in the highest good in any situation. It wakes us up day after day, keeps our breath flowing and heart beating.
It is from this place that inspiration comes and enthusiasm springs. In fact, the word enthusiasm comes from the Greek enthousiasmos, which means to be divinely inspired.
When I was young, I was attuned to my divine heritage, my enthusiasm. I felt most at home and expressive when I was cheerleading. I felt joyful and fulfilled as I inspired others into experiencing and expressing their own innate, high-flying energy. By the time I had worked in a corporate environment and earned a second degree in business some years later, I was dimly aware that somewhere along the way, I had left my enthusiasm on the sidelines.
After another decade, I was somewhat relieved that becoming a mother had given me a "reason" to leave my career in finance. Though, as my second child turned two, I became aware that my role as a parent had actually amplified the distance between me and my inner compass. As my two-year-old unyieldingly denied my requests (ok, commands), I found myself drowning in questions...
As I would come to learn, through years of dedicated study, deep contemplation, and honest self-inquiry, there are no simple answers to these questions, and yet there is one very simple answer: I am a divine being having a human experience.
I now see life through this broad context, appreciating the opportunities to know my authentic self experientially, through everyday joys and challenges. I have come full circle, reconnected to my enthusiasm, now serving as a spiritual cheerleader. My work is to inspire others to their enthusiasm, their divine inspiration, their greatest level of authentic self-expression.
To that end, I have recently and joyously opened "The Nest" in Emeryville, California, a sanctuary for divine connection and attunement. Check out what's happening at The Nest now.
I live with my husband, two children, and our cuddly kitty in Oakland, California.
