Hey there! I’m Shawna
a spiritual business mentor with a little bit of 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.
I made many mental notes-to-self that went something like this: 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 I was very aware that I didn’t belong there. 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.
When I was in my 20s I was working as a sign language interpreter. I was using a lot of my innate skills and felt pretty good about being of service, but I was also caught up in negative thinking, anxiety, and depression. I was so used to trying to blend in personally and professionally 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 business led by your own inner-guidance system: your heart. I can’t wait to see you walk your path with confidence.
