Welcome to My World!

 

I’m so excited to share my heart and my life with you!  This site encompasses what has become my spiritual journey from scared and blossoming blogger, to full-time writer and Spiritual Life Coach.  I timidly started this wordpress blog back in 2010, in an effort to get back to my passion for writing, which was something I had walked away from at the age of 21.  I walked away from it because I didn’t believe in my own vision for myself or the passion that was burning inside my heart for the written word.  Instead, I listened to the voices outside of me that didn’t believe in me or my writing talent and I walked away from my dream of writing in order to obtain a sensible job and pay my bills.  I shoved down feelings of boredom and disheartenment for years!

I essentially took a 16 year detour from my writing, endeavoring to live life the way ‘they’ told me I should.  No bueno.  However, what could be seen as a fatal mistake has actually been the thing that has been one of my greatest teachers.  Always listen to your own intuition.  A quote from the famous literary character, Dorothy Gale, comes to mind.

“If I ever go looking for my heart’s desire again, I won’t look any further than my own back yard. Because if it isn’t there, I never really lost it to begin with.”

And before you ask, Yes, I am a Kansas girl….born and bred!  :)  So I decided to follow my own yellow brick road and it led me to the full-time writing career that I’d always dreamt of and gave me an extra bonus….Spiritual Life Coach!  The physical manifestation of that dream can be found right here, on the pages of my new and improved blog turned into business website.  My trip down the yellow brick road has definitely included some tornadoes and flying monkeys, but I refused to let that stop me and I didn’t give up!  I made it to the Emerald City with the help of some wonderful friends whom I met along the way.  No, they weren’t actual scarecrows, lions or tin men, but I’m certain that quite few of them embody the very traits that those beloved literary characters are well-known for.  And now I honestly do feel like I’ve found my way home to ‘Kansas’, except that home is not a place anymore, but a feeling.  I feel like myself again and it feels wonderful!

It should be noted that I don’t believe in coincidences.  I believe that everything happens for a reason.  And if you’re reading these words right now, then you haven’t found yourself here on the pages of my website by accident.  I’m sure that deep down, in a place you don’t often acknowlege, you already know exactly why you’re here.  But if not, take a look at my video below in which I share some more of my story.  Maybe it will resonate with you.  If not, no worries.  I thank you for stopping by.  But if you think you’re ready to look within and go on a magical journey of your own, then give me call.  I would love to walk you down your yellow brick road and help you find your own Emerald City!

Loads of love,

Amber
