A story about the angels we are sent to guide us…
I did’t have the normal journey of an intuitive. I spent the majority of my life as a Type A corporate banker. I always felt a deep connection to the Divine but I did not consider myself “metaphysically oriented.”
And I liked banking. I liked capitalism. I was a republican.
Then something shifted. I didn’t stop liking what I liked, I just felt my heart calling me towards something different. I got a masters in psychology while I was pregnant with kid #1 and then kid #2.
I was still a banker. But each of those steps on my journey seemed to unlock parts of me I didn’t know were there. Psychology got me to look at my thoughts differently.
Motherhood… well motherhood turned my world upside down. Each of my children taught me something new about myself and what I wanted.
Then came Martha Beck and her coaching program and my life tilted on its axis. (Or maybe it righted itself.). I left banking and embraced a new life as a coach.
10 years ago in a desert retreat with Martha and my fellow newbie coaches I started to “know” things and “see” things. It was all surprising and amazing and fun. But once I left the desert I kept that information to myself.
Although I was no longer a banker I was still NORMAL. What would people think if they knew? And maybe it was all in my head. Maybe I was just making it up. To be safe, I only told a few close friends.
Then a year later Martha brought her coaches together in Chicago for the first coaches conference and I met these two angels here – Barbara D’Amato and Anna Hazenberg.
Anna is the angel that was brought to me to help me embrace my gifts. She was pregnant at the time with her beautiful baby girl. In the middle of the night that baby girl woke me up and gave me a secret to give to Anna.
The next day at breakfast I shyly asked Anna if she would want a “message” from her baby if I had one for her. She said “Of course!” But before the secret was out of my mouth she said “Wait. I think I know. Is it…. (and she told me the exact secret her baby girl told me in the middle of the night.”
That conversation.. just a minutes in a single day… changed my life. It was the first step to me publicly owning this other side of me. It helped me become who I am now.
That baby’s secret… a prediction really … eventually came true. And much later on in Anna’s pregnancy another intuitive hit I shared with her changed the course of her delivery and her baby’s birth. I never would have had the courage to share my “hit” had her baby girl not spoken to me months earlier.
I know you are probably wondering what that secret was and what that intuitive hit was. I am intentionally not sharing that part because that is Anna’s story -not mine.
But what I can tell you is that even though Anna lives across an ocean, each time I see her and her baby-turned-big-girl on video … all these years later, I see two angels that changed my life.
And that other beautiful woman in this photo… Barbara D’Amato … she was the very first shaman I ever met. I am not sure she’d even call herself that. What I can tell you is that from the moment I spoke with her I understood that some humans are so full of love that when they speak it feels as if you have received a message directly from the Divine.
Barbara told me to believe in my gifts and for that I am so grateful.
Each day the Universe places in your path angels just like Anna and Barbara. It is your choice to see them and embrace their messages. I can promise you if you do, the path you find yourself on will feel far more magical.
