With my book, "Windows of Opportunity," I'm officially coming out of the "New Age Closet" and announcing to the world that not only do I believe in such things as reincarnation, Karma, and life after death, but I channel information about these subjects (and more!) from my guides on the other side of the veil. It will be interesting to see how the gang at my "day job" work reacts to this information!
I've been in the business world since I was 15 years old, starting with McDonalds during high school, and working my way up the corporate ladder from secretary to Director of Specialty Sales. While working full-time, I took college classes at night and earned traditional degrees in English and Communications. After years of dealing with the same health complaints, I wanted to find out what was causing them instead of continually just treating the symptoms, and that led me to study herbology and naturopathy. I started my journey with Rosemary Gladstar's herbology course and later earned an ND degree from the Clayton College of Natural Health.
I've always had an unquenchable thirst for all things metaphysical and frequently raided my Mother's bookshelf for her books about reincarnation, Karma, numerology, and "life after death." A friend introduced me to Shirley Maclaine's "Out on a Limb" when it first came out, and that was it, I was off on my own personal search for the truth! I attended psychic development classes during the 1980's and it was during one of those classes that I first began to channel through automatic writing.
My first major metaphysical influences were Ruth Montgomery and Shirley Maclaine, because they risked their reputations to bring new and important information to the world. They gave me information and direction when it came to my own search and spiritual growth. About two years ago I discovered Dolores Cannon's books and have definitely added her to my list of influences!
Business-wise, Marlo Thomas was a huge influence for me. She wasn't just "That Girl," she was "The Girl" when it came to taking care of business! She was in total control of her show and that was virtually unheard of for a woman at that time in history. She inspired me to continually push the envelope, and for that I am forever grateful.
