I found myself in a place faced with losing everything that I had. I had no money, no job, no food and no way to pay rent or utilities. I still had three children, medical needs, an apartment to maintain and places to go. I was physically and emotionally sick. I was everything that I didn't want to be. I was my worse nightmare. I was forced to seriously look at how I was living my life. I had to tell myself the truth that I was not in balance. During this time I found a temporary job that soon played out or might I say they never called me back. I was still scared and knew that Help from friends could only last so long. My back was up against a wall with no where to go but up or down. The choice was up to me. I chose to suit up and act like I really had a business, like I really wanted to be well and that Spirit would be the monitor of my life. The only thing left for me was to find a belief system that did not rely on people, places or things. That belief system had been coming to me over the years but I had never taken time to make it a priority in my life. I was a caretaker and did not have the faintest ideas of what self priority was all about. My dedication to community building had no focus or spiritual self investment. My first priority was to recognize that for me only a higher power could confirm the path of my business. I had to get serious about it and go beyond just believing and learn how to act like I believed in a higher power. I had to tell myself the truth. I had no background in the technical running of a business. I prayed and started to have the right information and people come into my life. I had no experience in Spirit led businesses. I started to study, read and network with other people who wanted to work from a Spirit led foundation. lyanla Vansant, author of The Value of the Valley, Meditations for People of Color, and Tapping the Power From Within, was that woman helped me make sense of it all. I was given a tape with her speaking about a Spirit led life a year before I met her. Later, I would have a chance to interview her at KPFT 90.1 FM. She counseled me over the phone and wrote me a long letter that I still study. Her books and tapes became tools that I used to get in touch with my own unique creativity. I was on my way. Marianne Williamson, author of A Woman's Worth, A Return to Love and her newest book l/tuminataczm into my life and validated my experiences and needs. Her work put the icing right on the cake and my whole being screamed YES!!!! I also started to read and listen to tapes of a Course in Miracles. continued from Page 1 I set up a prayer ritual where I would consciously give this business and the day to the Spirit. I went to therapy to figure out more about my victim patterns and why it was so hard to self actualize my dreams. I started seeing a Reiki master and experienced body massage for my physical self. I got real with my 12-step community. I needed people who would tell me the truth and I knew I would find them there. I sought spiritual counseling from various directions. I stopped listening to what other people said and thought about what I was doing and started listening to my Inner Voice for the directions for my life. I cried a lot and talked about the terror. I honored my dreams. I eventually started going into a convent for three day silent retreats, so I could learn what stillness and silence was all about. As I spent less time with people and started to scrutinize who I associated with, I created my own spiritual ritual. I became more clear on what my business was all about. I was starting to feel a peace that I had never felt before. Things were starting to make more sense. I had passion without the terror always hovering nearby.
