There have been three critical junctures of healing in my life. Through my odyssey with ovarian cancer at the tender years of 18 to 23, I was fortunate to uncover pearls of the spirit that can never be stripped away. These gems formed the early foundation that led me to my purpose.  I discovered my true purpose as a woman: that we are empowered with the energy of The Goddess Mother - Shakti. She gives us the power to create life, nourish and nurture nature, preserve the creative forces that support life to make us whole, happy and prosperous. 

The last layers of cleansing and the deep dross of karmas plunked upon the divine bed of my soul has been unfolding in my life for the past four years. This has been the most painful awakening of my entire journey. It has brought me to my knees as I dredged the deep well of being to forgive myself for all and any action on my part that ran counter to the integrity of my magnificent soul. Now, I will forever more be wrapped in the rich bosom of my Mother Goddess, peacefully lying on her eternal breast. 

Each and every person has this powerful energy to grow, change and transform our karmas – in healing our karmas, we become the nexus for healing self, family, community and the world. Unfortunately, the majority of people do not recognise this divine gift that effortless lay at rest awaiting its awakening. Women, in particular, are endowed with Devi's staff to nourish, nurture, guide and heal all of life that is, when we find the courage to stand tall and be stoic in our purpose.

For a quarter century I lived in the forest communing with nature whilst disseminating the work and education of Wise Earth Ayurveda. Through this education, I restored the earth-based sadhana practices of the Vedas wherein we reclaim the light of awareness in which presence we heal and become whole. Through this long journey I have come to know the pathway to wellness, joy and enlightenment, peace, and the cultivation of inner harmony. But in order to reclaim salubrious life, we must be prepared to let go of the erroneous beliefs, ideas, and habituations which we have garnered through centuries of mentalized living. 

We are better equipped to influence a successful outcome when we understand how critical it is to honour our process to heal however unexpected or challenging it may be. The process is often hard to face because it is not so pretty. In so doing, we develop a greater awareness of who we are, where we are going, and the nature of our purpose. In other words, we find our golden wings. Bear in mind, this course of action is sacred, and requires a sanctum of privacy around you. 

To expunge negative energy, violent habits, untoward image of self, it is best you create a retreat for yourself so that you can more easily open the shroud to reveal honesty. It is equally important in this space that the process be witnessed by one other person to whom you feel intimate in spirit- a spouse or a friend who listens and hears you, and who would never judge you or your process.
