In my last blog post, I talked about the weight of not listening to my truth when it was time to walk away from my career.
⠀⠀
By the time I admitted the situation was happening for me and not to me, I had three fibroid tumors growing on my uterus and I wasn’t sleeping through the night because I couldn’t stop replaying situations in my head, hoping to uncover things I might have missed.
⠀⠀
It wasn’t easy to walk away from a career I’d spent seventeen years building.
⠀⠀
That is, until my health was in jeopardy. I wasn’t about to sacrifice my health for a job after decades of eating organic food, energy work, yoga, and cleansing. The Universe knew this about me. My health was the knife in my back I couldn’t ignore.

I turned in my resignation and walked away.
⠀⠀
As soon as I left, I felt the struggle lift. I knew I‘d be ok.
⠀⠀
A few weeks into my freedom, I went on a life changing trip to Tulum with friends.
⠀⠀
I immersed myself in the nurturing energy of Tulum. I journaled every day, I cried. I reconnected to my heart and soul. I remembered who I was. I knew the job didn’t define me. I returned to my truth.
⠀⠀
I came home from that trip transformed, but the pain of my past took longer to lift.
⠀⠀
I had to process everything. I had to forgive people who would never be sorry. I had to forgive myself for staying somewhere so painful.
⠀⠀
While I healed, I allowed myself to explore what was next.
⠀⠀
I decided to do all the things I’d always wanted to do. Why not? It was a chance to start over.
⠀⠀
Two things were at the top of my list. 1. Write a book, which I’d wanted to do for twenty years and 2. Use my intuitive gift to do readings for people.
⠀⠀
I wanted to align my work with the spiritual path I’d been on for years. I did that and more.
⠀⠀
If I‘d known then what I know now I would’ve given myself permission to leave much sooner.
⠀⠀
But we don’t know. We have no idea what’s waiting for us in the unknown place I call The Void. The place between “what was” and “what will be”. The place where one door has closed and another has yet to open.
⠀⠀
And we can’t know until we’re willing to step through the door.
