A profound personal transformation that began in 1999 and went on for two lengthy and enriching decades, has allowed me to discover that which I call the authentic Self (from the ancient Greek authéntēs, “principal, master”), and create as this Self, inner and outer experiences where wholeness, peace, joy, wellbeing and fulfillment, abound.
From a past, where my disconnection from my authentic Self - disguised as emptiness, depression, anxiety, addictions, suicidal behavior, and all sorts of negative thinking - created a somber and superficial reality without an easy way out, I shifted into this happier, self-realized woman I am today.
A few interesting facts about my story:
I was born in Colombia, South America, and brought up in a tiny, yet magical island of the vast Caribbean called San Andrés, where my family lived until I was a teenager.
Having different races, cultures, and languages as my background, I see myself as a peaceful and compassionate world citizen who loves to travel and feel at home, wherever I go.
I have been married and divorced twice. I have two beautiful daughters from my first marriage, who are 30 and 26. My first ex-husband passed away and I continue to have a great friendship with my second ex-husband.
I am currently 54, and I feel deeply grateful for the years ahead of me to explore more of this extraordinary life.
I graduated from college as an Anthropologist and went on to study two master’s degrees in the Humanities and Social Sciences.
Before becoming a Life Coach, I worked as:
- An Anthropologist in various archaeological projects;
- The Editor In Chief for a prestigious university;
- A Political Scientist in a presidential campaign for an elected president;
- The Founder and CEO of an NGO focusing on education.
- An HR executive in corporate America.
In 2009, I finished my autobiographical novel which in 2011 became an award-winning and bestselling book under the title “While I Was Learning To Become God.”
I have traveled and lived in different cities throughout US and Europe.
I believe in and practice mindfulness and conscious living.
Meditation is my most cherished practice.
In God I trust.
A few degrees I have completed:
-BS in Anthropology
-MS in Political Science and International Affairs
-MA in International Policies and Practices
-Certified Life Coach and Executive Coach
-Certified Reiki Practitioner
-Certified Alchemical Healer
-Certified NLP Practitioner
A few teachers I have been honored to learn from:
Neale Donald Walsch
(only to name a few.)
And so… why am I telling you all this?
Because I wanted to share with you the “story” of who I AM NOT.
Yes, none of that past I just mentioned is my true and most authentic Self...
The happiness and fulfillment I have found, have nothing to do with my story.
You see, your happiness and fulfillment can only be found once you know how to live from your authentic Self.
What is the use of having a successful career, if we don’t know who we truly are?
What is the use of having millions in the bank, if that money is not allowing us to be all that we can be?
What is the use of having a family making us proud, if our family is only seeing us for the roles we play, and not for the magnificent being inside us creating it all?
What is the use of taking care of our body and choosing a healthy lifestyle, if we are not connected with our inner peace and infinite joy?
After 20 years of being fully dedicated to understanding who I was, and why I was here on this planet, I now believe that true success has nothing to do with the things we accomplish, or the things we have, our names, our titles, or anything else related to the distracting and illusory material world that our limited eyes see.
In the past, life took away from me, all my material world, including people and things, not once but twice. Now, I know it was what I needed to find my authentic Self and live as the worthy, fulfilled, and the self-realized version I always wanted to be.
Now that I have shared about who I am and who I am not, I would love to hear about YOU.
Do you feel as happy and successful as you can be?
How are you living your midlife?
Has life taken something or someone away from you?
Has life not brought what you expected?
Have you found who you truly are?
And if not, have you ever wondered if this is something you must find before your time is up here on planet Earth?
If you are still reading my words, please find Her, not only for your own sake but also, for the sake of all those you love.
Your authentic Self is the ONLY one with the key to all that has been missing up until now.
How much has it cost you, NOT to do the work that is required to find Her?
I am here for you. Don't forget to reach out.
I look forward to hearing from you soon,
