I discovered a long time ago that I had a gift for listening to people. Not just listening to the words coming out of their mouths, but listening to the body language, the eyes, the smile....even the silence. I came to realize that while I could listen to the myriad of elements involved in communicating with another person, I was also able to listen to their soul.
It speaks to me when I meet someone and initially, their confidence, strength, and calm or bubbly personality is presented first. However, within a period of time, I can begin to detect a potential crack that could mean there is a brokenness deep inside that needs to heal. This fissure in their spirit is preventing them from living a life of happiness, satisfaction, and fulfillment.
Over time, I taught myself how to listen with even more intent. I went to school to earn the credibility to listen professionally. Not only do I listen, but I help to peel back the layers of masks and goop that has been building up to help you uncover your shine and find that comfort spot to not just exist, but to live unapologetically and happily in your space.
We don't get to choose where we are born, to whom we are born, or how we are born, or why. But what we do get to do, is make the best of what we are given and multiply it in such a way, that we can shape our world any way we want, knowing we have the power to choose life, joy, and peace.
If you find yourself, or someone you know needing to talk to someone, I'm here. 404-490-2426
Love, Light, and Joy,
