It’s been a month since I returned home from Peru, a month since my last communication with Mother Ayahuasca, and I am still beaming from the inside out. Anytime I reflect on my two weeks at Amaru Spirit, I can’t help but smile and my heart swells with gratitude and love. The lessons I learned and the rejuvenation of my heart and soul are as powerful today as they were the day I left. A blog has been a goal of mine for some time now, but after going through a sort of metamorphosis in the Amazon, I now feel ready, and like its time, to start putting myself and my ideas out into the world in a way that frightens and challenges me. I’m writing a blog for a few reasons. I believe it’ll serve to strengthen certain aspects of myself that I’m working on, including my appreciation and comfortability with my authentic self, my writing and story-telling abilities, and my connection to the world outside my head. I love to teach and inspire others, and I hope that by opening up my life to the world, I’ll be able to inspire more than just my closest friends to explore inward, to search for a better understanding of themselves, to live more authentically, to embrace change, to see the beauty of life, to seek out a new perspective, and to love life for both its ups and its downs.
As an intense and passionate introvert, my personal odyssey has been guided by a lot of philosophy, poetry and self-helpy books in an attempt to understand who I am and what is this journey called Life. Now, after bathing for so long in the wisdom of some of the world’s most enlightened and educated minds, and after a lot of deep and dark self-reflection and introspection, I find, upon standing up, my insecurities have been washed away and my life and I are now dripping with wisdom, inspiration, and beauty. I know I have a lot left to learn and so much farther to go on this journey, but I’ve come a helluva long way and it’s been an intense and exciting whirlwind of a ride. So join me if you wish on my crazy journey of self-discovery; let me entertain you and guide you; let me teach you and show you how I do it my way.
