What is this all about?
In 2001, at a particularity low point in my life I unknowingly tapped the universe for help. From the outside no one could tell of my struggles - by design, or intent, one could say. Being empty on the inside yet pretty intelligent, I turned to what “society” says we all must have and want to be happy. And I had everything – a new house, which my husband and I had built, a budding career, two young children, a Suburban, Mitsubishi sedan, a golden retriever and a cat. Yet on the inside I was filled daily with feeling of anxiety, guilt and worthlessness. I had it all but I didn’t have me.
It was then and there I started on my journey back to me. Beginning with a bit of yoga and meditation, I soon realized that physically, mentally and spiritually we are all connected – start working on one an the others respond.
Two years into my journey, walking into the Barnes and Noble in Sioux Falls, South Dakota with a colleague, I came across this book quoted above by Cheryl Richardson. This was the beginning the daily mini-miracles I still have today. Somehow, every time I had a question, the answer would appear. And it was not as if I would read something and have a question about it. Rather I would come up with a question and the very next things I read, heard, come upon was the answer. It was, and still is, truly a miracle every day. Cheryl was right. The universe responded and everything I needed was right there in front of me.
Six years into my journey began the incubus for this website. I wanted to share with you the daily miracles I had been having and the books, songs, movies and intuitions that showed me the way. So I started writing.
From my glorious string of mini-miracles I started to piece together what I present here as “Waking Monologues” or common themes. As I read through these books, or listened to a friend, saw a chance happening or a certain song came on the radio with the exact right message, I noticed common themes coming through -”Waking Monologues”. I did not pick up on them right away as they say ones needs to read and/or experience things in several different ways, at several different times to really start to see them. And so throughout this website I have written them out – the Waking Monologues, my thoughts and the books they reference.
