Show Notes

In this emotional episode, I share my personal story of how my parents showed me what I needed to change within myself as they began to get closer to the end of their lives. I was a beacon of light for them as their health began to crumble, as a spiritual advisor, caregiver, and trusted executor of their estate. I had many fears come to the surface as I spent a lot of time with them in the last 4 years. Fears and blocks holding me back that I needed to heal within myself, and thereby healing them and the same insecurities and lack of self-worth they carried their whole lives. What a gift! This was truly an initiation into my authentic self and how I have dissolved so much of the scarcity, fear, and self-worth issues going back and forth in our lineage. These were some of the most challenging years of my life yet some of the most rewarding. We learn through relationship and I was teaching and learning as I watched my parents age, sometimes not so easily or gracefully, and take their leave from this planet. It's hard to believe they both died within 9 months of one another. Yet they keep in touch!
