Let yourself be silently drawn by the strange pull of what you really love.
I'm native to Portland, Oregon. I have a large Italian family here, which includes my ten nieces and nephews, whose lives I am actively engaged in. Currently, I manage a very unique residence with several personally designed apartments created by myself and a friend. I have a cat and two kitties that help fill my home life with humor and sweetness. I love nature, especially experiencing the trees. One of my biggest passions is finding freedom in this life, moment by moment. This kind of freedom, means living in depth, meaning, and unique creativity in each and every moment.
To me, freedom is not a static state or end goal. I've discovered it's definitely not the idea I had bought into from my culture. I find that it's a forever changing, creative, and evolving process that happens in each and every moment. It looks different all the time and it's always free to keep changing. It's been many years of exploring this path towards an ever deepening/changing freedom of living in the moment that I've learned to to trust my process more and more. My ability to subtly discern and use practical wisdom in my daily life has grown exponentially. I am increasingly deepening into a more direct and intimate connection with all aspects of my life and with Being itself.
The past 25 years of my life has not necessarily been easy. My struggles with a variety of issues including, depression, anxiety, OCD, ADD, and body image issues, has pushed me into an intense search for resolution. It was through spirituality and healing that I found ways to navigate these challenges.
The Living Inquiries stood out amongst the variety of techniques I explored over the many years of spiritual seeking. It offered me a safe avenue to dive deep into the subtle traumatized parts, while also recognizing the spacious presence that holds and meets it all. I love that the Inquiries bridge awakening experiences with the healing/integration of my personal self. The combination of those two is a key component to how I explore and navigate this life.
But the Living Inquiries is not the only technique I have learned that has aided me in my explorations. Some of the other tools I use to assist me in finding wellbeing on a daily basis are; gratitude journaling, setting intentions, prayer, yoga, walks, contemplative meditations, and growing my intuitive guidance system through an experimentation and observation process. My own intuitive guidance is ultimately what leads my life, my path, and my connection to wholeness and joy. When working with you, I combine the variety of all these skills and tools I've gained over the years. My love for assisting others is growing every day, especially as I integrate and embody the creative, enlivening process of living this life within the ever-expanding depths of this moment.
Today, I navigate life with a greater sense of spaciousness, creativity, discernment, and joy - there is more ease in my relationships, my work, and my connection with spirit and the Divine. Now, even when difficult experiences or deeply vulnerable feelings appear, there is a solid sense of okay-ness and a more persistent feeling of well-being. Life is enjoyable and magical now, solutions appear easily and quickly, and I feel empowered to embrace rather than run from fear and pain.
