For the past few weeks, I have shared the story of my life journey; from discovering who I was and why I was here at a very young age…to losing everything due to my addictions…to rediscovering who I was.
However, as exciting it was to get back in touch with who I was, it was no longer enough. I felt an overwhelming urge to know more. It was rewarding to be able to help others at work and in my 12-step program, and I even attended school to receive my credentials for Alcoholism Counseling. But as I was finishing the course, I found that it wasn’t satisfying, mainly because it dealt just with the physical level of the disease, rather than the spiritual. So I dropped the coursework…and kept looking.
Counseling others was a step in the right direction, but I still sought more. Finally, I realized that spiritual counseling really resonated with me! People have always told me that they feel comfortable and safe around me, and that can share anything with me. Many people told me they wanted what I had “spiritually.”
So, I started to work with people more and more. I was attending a workshop when I heard my angels tell me that I am to write my story. They said others would heal from hearing my story and, while I was still grieving my loss of my fiancee, I eventually followed my angels’ direction.
I began by writing my story. I remember thinking that it was strange that, after all I had been through, I was incredibly at peace with all the pain I had caused and received during my life. And I was amazed at how I was able to talk/write about the abuse and destruction in my youth without reliving the pain and anger. The process of writing about it all actually healed me, and I was able to start to see it all differently.
I began to see that all of the difficulties in my life helped me to achieve a deep, rich, rewarding relationship between God and myself. I realized that I was here to help others to see the pain and destruction in their lives from a different perspective.
Next up: where do I go from here?
