Hi everyone. My name is Heather and I am a young 53 years (in earth years anyway :) and blessed to be the mother of a beautiful teenage daughter. I was born in Toronto, Ontario, Canada and moved to Africa at the age of 9 with my family where we lived for 4 1/2 years. Returned to Canada at age 14 and have lived here ever since though Africa stirred up the travel bug in me at a young age and I traveled a lot up until I became a mother at 35 years of age.

It was in Africa that I began to sense the connection to all living things and came to know the grace and wisdom of the esoteric world. I guess you could say that it was there that I began recognizing and feeling what was sacred in life, that which can be sensed beneath the surface of things, and began to write stuff down.

I’ve been writing about life, consciousness, and other-worldly things all my life as a way to express the feeling of the Great Mystery flowing through me and have found this practice, along with my connection to nature, to be the two most influential teachers I’ve ever had.

Life has taken me through some bumpy rides at times of loss, abandonment, culture shock, co-dependency, dissolved marriage, single motherhood, 29 moves, depression, poverty, fear, and personal bankruptcy, yet on the other side of all that, I have discovered much joy. The kind that can be felt for no reason at all. This is the joy of Spirit.

These life experiences have given me all the material needed to write about what I have learned regarding the evolution of the soul – which I believe to be the true purpose of our existence – and to offer others some comfort and perhaps put them at ease a little bit about whatever challenges they may be facing in life.

Honestly, I am more interested in soothing the soul than making any money from my words. I write what I do because I cannot NOT write, and always the words and the wisdom behind them are a teaching for me too! I already have a job that I earn an income from, and yes, of course I would very much enjoy any money I would make from writing if that were to happen.

People often tell me that I’m a gifted writer, mystic, poet, and healer, but I just like to say that I’m an expert ‘noticer’ in that I can often sense what’s beneath the surface of a person or situation and that's what I'm most interested in...not the masks we all wear.

I first joined WA in February 2015, built an entire website (moneymystic), wrote many posts for it and lots of WA blogs, but then recently (Dec 2015) deleted everything in a fit of frustration and anger at the way first class blogs and awesome people here were being targeted by others who were intentionally "spamming" their blogs for no good reason by hitting the spam button, which shuts the blog down. Being one of the people who was targeted in the past more than once, I became exasperated when it happened to some other friends here, but in a way, deleting everything cleared the slate for me to move forward with my first love and original website. (Read below)

Hopefully, the spam button thing has been addressed once an for all.

I'm here at WA now because I began a writing website several years ago on another platform to offer encouragement and support to the many who are searching to understand all the changes that are taking place within themselves and the world around them at this time, yet I knew nothing about having a website and making it work to help me and others, so at the moment I am in the middle of rebuilding that old website via the siterubix mode and then migrating years of writing over to WA with my own domain.

Warmly,
Heather

Very good goals. Similar to me, starting small and then getting bigger.

Great goals Heather,

The first step to achieving success online is to set some goals and now that you have done this you can start working towards them. Your goals are absolutely achievable and realistic. Dedicate yourself to working through the training, taking action, and getting help when you need it.

I am personally here to help you and there are many others within the community that will reach out to help too.

You are already doing great, keep it up!

That's wonderful, Roland. All I know in Swahili is Jambo and Asante Sana. East Africa is beautiful. I would have loved to have seen much more of it.
