Katie ended her fantastic interview by sharing that in the midst of her turmoil someone had given her a stone. Written on it was the word ‘BELIEVE’. She’s learnt to believe in herself, in her experience and is now encouraging others to do the same. Here’s the synchronicity, here’s what came through to me when I was writing the dedication for my new book:
I’ve written this book because I believe in you.
I believe in your ability to heal and grow.
I believe in your ability to wake up, to become self-aware,
to move towards love and away from fear.
I believe in your ability to take ownership of your journey towards wholeness.
I believe in your courage, determination and perseverance,
all of which you will need to succeed on this journey.
Above all, I believe you. I believe your experience.
I believe it has a deeper meaning, a soulful meaning.
I honour that and I honour you.
So, Katie, I honour your experience. I honour you and ALL that you are bringing to help raise awareness and understanding of the spiritual perspective on mental health. Here’s to Synchronicity Worldwide!
In Kimberley’s interview, I really appreciated how she shared living totally from the heart, moment by moment, hour by hour, day by day, following her intuition and joy. I’m still learning how to do that more consistently and felt really validated in all my trials and errors by what she shared.
Kimberley ended her interview by telling us about her free gift, her Soul Whispers e-book, which covers 11 ways in which your soul can be calling you to wake up; 11 signs that your soul is whispering to you to give yourself permission to live the life you want to live.
And here’s the synchronicity: when I was working on my new book (sorry, I’m not trying to plug it, really!) I didn’t want to call the first section an Introduction. I know a lot of people skip ‘introductions’ and there was some important information that I didn’t want readers to miss. So I asked myself ‘what is this section really about? If I’m introducing the book as a whole, what sums up its message in a nutshell?’ The title I came up with is ‘The Life You Want to Live’, the very phrase Kimberley ended her interview with. And that is the message of the book, that a mental health crisis is an opportunity for the kind of healing and growth that will lead you to the life you want to live.
So Katie and Kimberley, once again it feels as if this whole journey is being orchestrated from above. We really are all singing from the same song sheet now. You both and Dabney are such an inspiration to me. Thank you, Katie! Thank you, Kimberley! Thank you, Dabney!
