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.
From a young age I felt there was something more, something magical and unseen—a Loving Source. My mother had left the Catholic faith by the time I was born so I grew up surrounded by beautiful stone churches with stained glass windows while very aware that I didn’t belong in any of them.
I always knew 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 in my way of being and thinking.
Suring my 20s I worked as a sign language interpreter which used many innate skills like supporting others independence, facilitating communication and learning and helping others connect. I felt pretty good about being of service, but it didn’t really hit the mark for me.
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.
When I discovered yoga I came home to myself in the way that I had always wanted. That began a 20 year journey of spiritual self-discovery back to my own sacred centre. Eventually I began to mentor others spiritual lives and, more recently, to mentor women who are here to hold space and guide others back to their own sacred centre in their own unique way.
One final note: if you’re reading this you probably have a sense of the word SACRED, but you may or may not consider yourself a rebel, so let’s have a chat about that.
To rebel is to resist authority, control, or convention. To be a rebel in the sense I’m speaking about is to come back to your own inner authority, to recognize your own innate power and to forge your own path regardless of what convention dictates.
Let’s just put it on the table – women like us? We were never meant to fit in. We were born with an immutable sense of free will, a desire for justice and equity for all and the desire to know the Love from which we came so we can share it with others.
True power comes from within. It comes from anchoring into the knowing that you are loved and celebrated exactly as you are. However you choose to use your unique gifts you can be a conduit for that Loving Source to help others to come to the same knowing.
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.
