For many years, I lived in two worlds: the external world of academia where objectivity and evidence are required and my internal world where I could come home to my subjective experience of the spiritual, mystical and magical nature of life in connection with my soulful essence and personal connection with divine intelligence. Out of necessity, I kept these two worlds very separate, which caused profound discord and persistent existential angst. I lived in a perpetual state of incongruence with a fragmented sense of self feeling like my inner and outer worlds had to be separated.
Fortunately, over time, I was able to heal the inner divide and I am now fully integrated in all my humanity, spirituality, creativity and professional identity. I continue to do meaningful work at the university while also doing what I love in my private coaching practice AND I am also having so much fun letting my creative spirit fly freely in the world. After a long and arduous journey of transformation (which I am still on, of course), I can say with all sincerity that I am whole and complete being who I came to be and doing what I came to do in this lifetime. It is the greatest feeling in the world and I wish this for everyone else too.
