Each Year A Chapter: My Personal Story

On my twenty-fourth birthday, my father died of a massive heart attack while driving his car.

I had always been very close to my father. I felt safe with him. He understood me in a way like no one else. I had heard that a person’s relationship with his father is equivalent to his relationship with God. After my father died, I felt as though I’d lost both of them.

What followed was a period of darkness, an absence of light in my life. I ended a long-term relationship and broke away from activities I used to enjoy doing. I felt as if I were dying inside. I probably was.

I began working with an energy healer who told me that my bottom three Chakras – the grounding life forces in my body – were ripped away from the rest. That was exactly how I felt, as if I’d been ripped in half.

Thus began my journey of self-transformation, one that took me from a series of mini deaths to a spiritual reawakening, from rock bottom to a state of pure bliss. Throughout each year, which felt like chapters of my life, I encountered teachers who helped me work through my difficult issues… to relearn how to tap into my inner resources for healing… to regain the relationships I thought I’d lost.

Core Intention was born out of my desire to integrate the experiences and skills I’d accumulated along the way and bring it all into a higher awareness. My goal is to help my clients through their own journey of self-awareness with empathy and love.
