Over twenty years ago, I had a powerful awakening in the desert of southern California. Stressed out from my corporate life and suffering from both anxiety and depression, I fled to the desert for respite. Upon arrival, I was greeted by my loving family and many beautiful people who became my friends. I was having the time of my life rediscovering what it meant to be joyful and free. One morning, I awoke terrified at the prospect of returning to my life in purgatory. I jumped out of bed and ran toward the mountains as if they were calling me. I sprinted to the top, threw my arms up and asked for divine guidance. Within moments, a total sense of calm washed over me and a voice resonated within me and all around me saying, “Can’t you see you’ve come home? You will stay here and heal yourself and many others. Don’t worry about the details. You will be guided every step of the way and always remember that you are loved more then you can possibly imagine.” In that astounding moment, I just stood there in awe looking out over the desert landscape envisioning my life as a healer in the desert. I knew the message was the absolute truth and so, without a doubt in my mind or an ounce of fear in my heart. i ran down the mountain and began my new life in the desert as healer. I opened a wellness business called “Lighten Up!” where for twelve years, I healed myself and many others just like the voice said I would. (You can see how this “heroes journey” unfolds in my book, “Wake Up!” and heal yourself and many others along the way!) PLEASE SHARE YOUR HEROES JOURNEY OR A DIVINE INTERVENTION YOU HAVE EXPERIENCED!
