The title of this post is actually a quote by Rev. Michael Bernard Beckwith who founded Agape International Spiritual Center in Culver City, CA. I found that it completely summed up my experience back in 2007 that pushed me out of suffering and into a state of bliss. I share more in the video below.
Here is the interview I watched that I mentioned in this video that led me to find more interviews, and watch the movie “Conversations with God” that inspired me to pull out my writings from 2007 that turned my life around, but fear and doubt crept in and I put the writings away. I am happy to say 5 years later I am going back through the work, living it and I’ll be sharing it with you as I go along!

Are you not getting the results you want in your health, wealth or relationships?
Are you feeling drained, deflated, or struggling?
When life sucks it is merely the calling within us that is having a temper tantrum because we have been ignoring it. I’d like to inspire you to stop treating the symptoms of your life, and completely let go of what you think you should be to allow what you are meant to be to flow through you.
Imagine healing every aspect of your life
Imagine waking up with enthusiasm
Imagine feeling deeply fulfilled in your life
Imagine your desires flowing effortlessly into your life
Imagine experiencing Heaven on Earth Now
It’s all possible. Just watch the video of me sharing my story in 2007 of hitting rock bottom which propelled me into absolute surrender. I no longer was questioning the inspired nudges. No longer allowing my mind to talk myself out of it, I was no longer procrastinating. Life felt blissful and my desires flowed to me seemingly effortlessly. Then I snapped out of it went back into my head and resistance and watched the suffering begin again. I am re-inspired to give 100% commitment to act on the whispers throughout my day. Join me!
We are meant to be great! Allow it to flow! This song is a great reminder to stop playing small.
We all have beauty that is begging to be expressed through us. Let’s let go and allow it to flow! This life is meant to be good. Let it be!
It was January 2005, I just closed escrow on my first home. I was happy to get the keys and move in. I had taken the day off work to start the moving process. However, a client called me very early that morning needing my assistance. I normally took the kids to school, but I made arragements to have my long term boyfriend take them so I could go see this client and then get started on moving in.
However, on my way I was involved in a hit and run by a drunk driver that could have ended my life. I was sitting at a red light waiting for it to turn green when I was hit full force. I don’t remember being hit. I was knocked unconscious, but I remember coming out of it being surrounded by a group of people, not knowing where I was or what had happened. Luckily, people saw the accident happen and chased the person who hit me and fled the scene.
The back end of my little 4 door Honda Civic had been smashed all the way to where the back seat was almost touching the back of the drivers seat. I had my massage table in the trunk of my car at the time. The impact propelled the table through the back seat and over my head to the front windshield.
I was laid up in bed for 3 months to heal from head trauma, vertigo, neck and back injuries in addition to some left sided injuries to my shoulder, elbow and knees. The vertigo (severe dizziness and nausea)was so severe that I felt like I got off a really fast merry-go-round. I couldn’t see straight, everything was moving, at the slightest movement I felt like I would throw up. If you have ever been drunk and closed your eyes and felt the whole world spinning, that’s how I felt 24/7. I couldn’t hold up my head. I couldn’t think clearly. I couldn’t take pain pills because my body rejected them. I spent time in the ER dealing with a bad reaction to Vicodin. I was throwing up non stop and heaving into exhaustion. I felt like I had no quality of life. I couldn’t even function: physically or mentally.
During the healing phases, I would get flash images of the accident reoccuring in my head. I was brought to tears when I realized I would normally take my kids to school that morning. Thoughts went through my mind of my children no longer being in my life. I was shaken! My kids are such a huge part of my life, but at that time I was working, my kids were in public school. I taught evening fitness classes and time with my kids was somewhat limited.
Thoughts went through my mind, “Was this a life that mattered?”, “If I died today, did I give my kids the skills they needed in life?”, “Did I make a positive impact on my kids?” I thought about that being my last day to live and questioned the way I had been living. Did I live a life that I could die a happy person feeling totally confident that I had done all I could do in my life? Did I spend my time in ways that mattered most? Did my kids know how much I loved them? Did I savor them or take them for granted?
I wanted to hug them, cuddle them, kiss them, tell them how much I loved them. I wanted to laugh with them, to grow with them, to watch them experience life. I wanted to support them and share this gift of life we had. Even if it was only one more day.
This was the beginning of a major life shift for me. I felt gratitude for the accident, because it made me reevaluate my life. I started shifting my life immediately. I did not return to work full time. I only saw clients when my kids were in school and in the fall of 2005, I enrolled my kids in a charter school. I began a homeschooling program. I really didn’t know how to homeschool or anything about it at all. However, I repeatedly had the intuition and inspiration to do it,so I trusted that guidance.
Other changes evolved as well. I ended a 5 year relationship that seemed to no longer be syngergistic. I discovered raw foods. I decided to take my career into my own hands and become self employed. Freedom in all life aspects became very important.
I was given another chance to live. And ya know, we don’t have to wait until something like this happens to start a new life. Every morning the sun rises we are given another lease on life. What are you going to do with it?
