As the oldest girl in a family of 12 children, I started bossing people around from the seat of my tricycle.
I thought I had all the answers. That is, until illness and tragic deaths struck my own family. Suddenly, all my hard-won healing powers as a successful psychotherapist, teacher, author, and energy psychology pioneer couldn’t help me. Even religion failed me.
I went on a search for truth. I read everything I could get my hands on, from esoteric teachings to modern courses on healing and spirituality. My quest led me to a spiritual Master, Her Holiness Sai Maa. Finally, someone could answer my questions.
What I didn’t expect? Maa challenged me to face the fear lurking beneath the bossy, know-it-all facade I had lived behind my entire life.
For years as her student, I resisted. But eventually Sai Maa’s powerful love won out. My defenses crumbled, and I found a terrified child part of myself in need of healing. What evolved from our work together was a profoundly better version of me, as a healer, a wife, a sister, a mother, and a friend. Eventually I was leading programs for healers around the world.
Then my world really fell apart.
Even though I was busy answering emails and saving the world, I somehow managed to fit in a long-overdue mammogram.
Are you kidding me? After all the work I’ve done to heal the split off parts of me? The shame and helplessness took me to my knees. I sobbed for months.
I knew: If I didn’t dive deep into those dark waters, I wouldn’t be able to find my way through this.
I came face-to-face with
I made peace with her, and brought her home. This shifted everything.
Your life is calling.
You have gifts to offer, and you came here for a reason. Even though you’re a leader, maybe you just can’t seem to make it all work. You hide your light or you blast your way through, and both are painful. Or you have an emptiness that nothing–not work, food, money, success–will fulfill.
If I can break free of the bonds that held me from the life of my wildest dreams, I know you can too.
I know the hiding places. And I am fearless enough to take you deep into your own dark waters to reclaim the parts you left behind … and lovingly guide you back.
Let’s do this. Together.
