I share stories about high-achieving Highly Sensitive People on the Hero’s Journey hoping they will inspire you to create a truly fulfilling life rooted in your Authentic Self. If you are not fulfilled, it may be because you conformed to what your family, your culture, or an outdated version of yourself thought was best for you. Read more

As a highly sensitive introvert, you were born with an innate desire to fulfill your potential. Although life is not always easy, you want to learn and grow from your struggles.
Your spirit beckons you to live congruently as your Authentic Self. Nothing less will be fulfilling.
You may not know exactly how to get there, but something …
a divine something … pulls you forward.
I’d like to share an overview of a story from my book that illustrates the deep emotional healing I experienced during my Hero’s Journey to the Authentic Self.
Staying conscious through the Dark Night of the Soul enabled me to excavate my Authentic Self.
Why did I embark on such a grueling Hero’s Journey to the Authentic Self?
I realized that I had been trying to gain emotional security from all the wrong places … mostly from people and work.
My Inner Critic insisted that I needed to excel at everything in order to be acceptable and lovable. No wonder my Inner Child felt like she was thrown under the bus all the time.
I needed to connect with an enduring source of love and wisdom. I wanted to become my own best friend instead of wishing that someone or something outside of myself would make me feel whole.
I intended to develop a rich intimate relationship with my Sacred Inner Beloved, aka, the Holy Spirit within me.
Eventually, after a long while …
unconditional self-acceptance sprang up from the ground of my being …
like a flower blooming in the springtime.
This enabled me to love others with more purity instead of manipulating them or myself.
This spiritual relationship provided a brand new foundation of emotional security.
After my roots grew deep, I took a giant risk.
I placed my faith in God, stepped out of my comfort zone, and created one of my most cherished dreams.
What is your dream?
· What is most meaningful in your life?
· Do you yearn for emotional security instead of anxiety?
· Are you absolutely true to your Authentic Self?
· Do you experience a rich relationship with the Holy Spirit?
I hope my story inspires you to stop settling for less.
There IS more possible for you …
if you would just take the risk to step outside of your comfort zone
and reach for the stars
the stars that are engraved with your name.

When discussing the Highly Sensitive Person (HSP) Retreats with Benita, she often mentioned that a retreat is more healing than several weeks of individual therapy. I heard this a few times over years before I ever attended a retreat. I always thought it was a sales pitch. I’ll be the first to admit, this is not a sales pitch. This is real. Read more
Devon, a highly sensitive man, called me for counseling at the prompting of his mother who was concerned about him. His dearest friends told him that he no longer seemed like himself. He was depressed. He was not eating properly, he had severe insomnia and he had trouble focusing on his work. Normally, Devon was an exemplary worker. Read more
