I originally wrote this for my website to describe how Greene Light came to be.
Since I was a very curious and inquisitive child, I wanted to learn more about the phrase “old soul”. The first time I heard it I immediately knew it applied to me. Could this explain the ancient wisdom with which I was born? Indeed.
I was taught to be a good listener, a skill for which I am grateful in a world of chaos and noise. Surviving in chaos has taught me valuable lessons that have made me stronger, built my confidence, and given me a wonderful outlook on life. I remember growing up being able to offer guidance to my friends who needed to be heard. Helping people has always uplifted me. I’ve learned that peace and joy are invaluable, precious treasures that must be protected. Sometimes all we get is one interaction, one moment, one chance to offer a sliver of hope. No amount of light is too small to really matter.
My grandfather always had a new joke, brain teaser, or big picture question for me to ponder. This is the foundation for my love of solving problems. I am easily able to listen and understand a problem, analyze the blockages, and offer solutions and direction. I see the light and potential in everybody – whether they can see it themselves or not. One of my superpowers is being able to look into the darkness and see what needs to be brought into the light. I am a SEER.
Healing looks different for everybody because each of us is infinitely unique; therefore, no two journeys are the same. I have been actively dedicated to my healing journey for years now. I made up my mind to rewrite my story after years of being sick, angry, resentful, and just downright unpleasant. I’ve been through some shit and learned a lot of things the hard way. I’ve always had a rebellious streak; going against the grain is a recurring theme in my life. I don’t accept any limits like “what we are supposed to do” or “how things should be”. I encourage everyone to reject these limits and throw them into the trash where they belong. Though the pity party is inviting, I don’t focus on the pain of these hard lessons, only the growth and wisdom I’ve gained. I believe that we all have the power to turn our world upside down, clean out the sludge, and purposefully choose to add back only things that uplift us and feed our souls. I did this by taking control of my choices and you can too.
I don’t have all the answers; I am still learning, growing, and healing. I thrive on making progress, healing myself, and adding light to the world. I know you’re going through some shit too and some days threaten to crack you open. Changing your reality can be painful, frustrating, and scary but you are not alone on your journey. I want to share my tools, hold you accountable, and enthusiastically cheerlead you every step of the way! Does accountability sound too scary? Let’s start with motivation. Does motivation sound overwhelming? Let’s start with inspiration. Inspiration is a product of joy so let’s work together to find and attract what brings you joy. Wherever you are now is a great place to start; whatever you want is absolutely possible. Progress is the priority, where you start is a small detail. I genuinely want to see you succeed and achieve your dreams!
Listening to others is important but the most important person you should listen to is yourself. What is that small inner voice saying? Listen to what draws your attention, how you want your future to unfold, and what scares you; these are all very important details in the story of your life. I hope that you find the courage to invite me on your journey, share all of yourself – past, present, and future – and allow yourself to heal. Allow yourself to break negative patterns. Allow yourself to make decisions of which you are proud. Allow yourself the opportunity to choose your path. Allow yourself to be exactly who you are. Allow yourself to change your story. Allow yourself to ask for help. If you are ready to grow, dissolve barriers, and spark light in every aspect of your life, I am here to support, guide, and inspire you!
If you are reading this now, I wholeheartedly give you the Greene Light to fall in love with and blossom into the magical, amazing person that you are meant to be.
