At the age of 33, after spending years in dysfunction and abusive relationships, I came face to face with the need to make a serious choice. Arriving at a fork in the road, I could have remained in the comfort of my misery but instead the Angels that guide me whispered from my Soul to choose life. I did and everything changed. At that time, I was divinely guided to a Masters Program in Spiritual Psychology at the University of Santa Monica. While there, I was inexplicably drawn to a man by the name of Steve Hardison, a world renowned life coach. The draw was daunting given calling him a coach is like calling the Beatles a garage band. He is extraordinary man and given I had little to no self-esteem at the time the call to contact him was frightening. Regardless, I choose to be bold and ask for what I want. With a courageous leap of faith, I just hit send on an email that forever changed my life. What I didn’t know at the time there was a deeper level to what was transpiring. My soul was being drawn to my future husband, John, who happened to be a client of Steve’s whose work together at the time had been to consciously create the ideal romantic partnership for John. In synchrony, I was creating the ideal relationship through my work at USM. Steve and I had a 25-minute life altering conversation. With the mentor request addressed within the first 3 minutes, which he kindly declined, I surprisingly found myself pouring my heart out to him about a promise of my heart that I knew I shared with another simply I hadn’t met him yet. Steve, struck by the beauty of my words, thought I was quoting scripture. From our conversation, a light sparked and I birthed the poetic words now called A Promise of the Heart. These later became my wedding vows. Through a series of Spirit led events A Promise of the Heart landed John’s world, where he immediately fell in love with me without ever seeing or talking to me. We were married one year later on 12.12.12. Our love is the greatest gift and blessing God could have ever given me. My intention with sharing this with you is to encourage to to follow the call of your heart. Even if it is faint or doesn’t seem possible. I encourage you to have the courage to Just Hit Send in your life and watch miracles transpire.
