Hey there! I’m Shawna- a spiritual mentor with a little bit of an inner rebel….
I never really wanted to be a rebel. In fact, I tried reeeallly hard to fit in. I was a social butterfly growing up and managed to blend in most anywhere, but occasionally I’d blurt things out that (to me) seemed like common sense. This clearly made others uncomfortable and I’d be met with blank stares or glares of horror.
Like the time in high school when I went on a rant during theater class about how women’s bodies were freely shown nude in movies, but then I dared to point out that not once had I seen a penis on screen.
It was moments like that when I made many a mental note-to-self: Shawna, shut the hell up! I started to bite my tongue a lot.
I also grew up feeling like there was something more, something magical and unseen—a Loving Source, but by the time I was born my mother had left the Catholic faith. I grew up surrounded by beautiful churches, but in this regard there was no blending in. I was very aware that I didn’t belong (in any sense). I was way too independent, strong-willed, outspoken, radical, wild….and I did not like rules.
See? A little bit rebel.
Yet, I wanted so desperately a spiritual home to call my own.
I had so many clear inner-knowings that I seemed to be born with but almost everywhere I turned I got the message that I was wrong ~ wrong in my way of being and wrong in my thinking.
By the time I was in my 20s I was well caught up in negative thinking, anxiety, and depression. I was so used to trying to blend in that I didn’t know who I was anymore.
Then I discovered yoga and came home to myself in the way that I had always wanted. That began a 20 year journey of spiritual discovery which ultimately pulled me up from the depths of depression (several times) and helped me to uncover the truth of Who I am.
I am sacred and I am a rebel (in all the right ways). I am a Sacred Rebel….and I’m guessing if you’ve gotten this far you are too.
To rebel is to resist authority, control, or convention.
We were never meant to fit in. We were born with free will and we seek to walk our own unique path. Our authority is right here, in the heart.
Power comes from within. Power comes from the knowing that you are loved exactly as you are, that you were born from a Loving Source that celebrates your unique Being and that, no matter what anyone might say, you will never be cast aside from this Love.
I believe that when we truly know this it becomes our spiritual super-power.
I’M HERE TO SUPPORT YOU IN CREATING A MORE MEANINGFUL AND PERSONAL SPIRITUAL LIFE RULED ONLY BY YOUR OWN HEART SO YOU CAN WALK YOUR PATH WITH CONFIDENCE.
