There comes a time in almost everyone’s life when they wonder, “Is this all there is?”
They experience a sense of something missing, a feeling of discontent, a longing for something more - something deeper. It may be in their work or contribution to the world, or in their relationships or interests. Somehow, the things they have invested their life in seem empty and trivial. This can be horrifying!
You may be in the middle of a great marriage, succeeding in your career, surrounded by glorious children, and BAM! suddenly you lose interest in the whole damn thing. Or it feels like you are just going through the motions.
Have you ever felt that way?
And in our society this questioning, this longing is viewed as a negative event and is called a “crisis.” It becomes something to resolve so life can get "back to normal." It is something we don't talk about. It is something to figure out on your own.
That’s where the mistake is made, I believe.
You see, I’ve come to the conclusion that this feeling is actually our soul speaking to us, telling us that we have outgrown our current life in some way, and that it is time for us to grow. It's a GREAT sign!
For reasons we may never understand, you have been given stewardship of a human soul. It was born into you, into your specific life. It is a unique event in the history of the universe. And I believe that your soul came here for a reason, that you signed up to learn certain lessons, and to complete certain tasks in this lifetime.
Maybe your soul wants to learn to love. Maybe it wants to learn how to forgive. Maybe it wants to explore connection, or be a warrior, or a leader, or a gardener.
Whatever it is, it’s your job to discover what your soul wants. What it came here to do.
The more closely you can listen to your soul's desire, and follow its call, the more clear your path in life is. When you feel stuck or that something's missing, it's because you have lost touch with what your soul wants. You can't hear your soul anymore. When you feel that discontent or longing, it's because your life is moving forward, but your soul has stalled, my friend.
That’s where I come in.
I empower people to become ferocious stewards of their souls. I support them to embark on the journey to follow their soul, rather than ignore it. I help them cultivate their soul’s voice rather than quiet it. I advocate for them to take a stand for a life of their greatest fulfillment and purpose rather than being a cog in someone else’s wheel.
To answer their soul’s call, like these people did:
- A dis-illusioned corporate employee felt overlooked, under-utilized, and de-valued. She was at her lowest point personally and professionally. Through our work together, she re-discovered her self-worth, her self-confidence, and her power to create change. One year later, she accepted her dream role in her dream city, pregnant not only with new possibilities, but her miracle baby as well.
- An ambitious young man was struggling to create his own life outside of his family’s traditional religious norms. He wanted to live an authentic life for himself that didn’t include religion but he didn't want to disappoint his parents and feared damaging his relationship with them forever. After we worked together, he was able to create a deeper connection with his family than ever before, and he found the courage to marry his girlfriend, despite his parent’s resistance. Their relationship is now flourishing.
- An unfulfilled wife of 30 years realized that she did not return the love and devotion that her husband had for her. She knew she didn’t want to leave, and she wanted to be able to meet him in his passion and love for her. After I worked with them, they discovered a deeper love than they had ever experienced with each other, and re-kindled a passion for each other and for the world. They created evolutionary love.
What about you? Are you hearing and following your soul’s call?
One thing I know for sure. You are a unique event in the history of the universe. NO ONE has ever tried the experiment of YOU yet. And, trust me, it’s all a WILD experiment! In my experience, walking this path is not easy. But it's worth it. And no one can do it for you, because YOU are the only one who can hear your soul’s calling.
But…you are NOT alone. You have a divine voice inside you, doing its best to guide you on your path.
And you have me. I am walking this path with you, and I support others just like you.

The normal way never leads home.”
