Evita's WOW Story:
As it so often happens, where we start out in life is normally very far from
where we end up. I was born outside of Canada, in a family where although the
enjoyment of life was valued, life was seen more as a struggle, than anything
else. At the age of 8, I found myself migrating to Canada with my family.
Finding myself in a totally new home, amidst parents who continued to live out
the struggles of life I did what most "good" girls are supposed to
do. I finished high school and went to University getting an undergraduate
degree in science, specializing in biology. I followed with a degree in
education and became a high school science teacher.
Life seemed to be
laid out according to plan for the most part. I got myself to a great place,
landing a full time teaching job within my first year of having graduated.
Having such a secure job, and one that I was proud and lucky to say I loved, one
could have said I had it all. Financial and job security, a nice family, friends
and good health... and yet something was missing.
I knew way back even
in my early teens, that something about life and how people were living it, did
not quite add up. I decided to devote more time to" me" and figure out who "me" really was, what I wanted from life, what was my real purpose in it and
how to transcend the daily struggles.
Well, as it turns out the Universe
had a few amazing surprises up its sleeve. By my mid-20's my love for teaching
was piercing deeper and beyond the classroom. I was a writer and speaker at
heart, with a passion to educate and help others. At that time, I also met the
love of my life, who is today my husband, unity partner and best friend. And
then as if out of the blue, a book came to me that literally changed my life. I
embarked from then, on what can only be described as a spiritual awakening.
All of a sudden my eyes, ears, mind, heart and soul were more awake and
in tune with life than ever before. I wanted to share and spread as much of all
this to others, in hopes that it can help them too and improve the quality of
their life. And so with the awesome skills and support of my husband, I began 2
web sites to share my knowledge and passions with others - one about health
& wellness, the other about personal evolution &
All of a sudden everything changed, as I saw through the illusory
nature of our day to day life, and began to experience the deep inner peace and
happiness, I knew were always missing in my life, and in most of our society. (Continued at Right)
Life, success, love and abundance all took on a totally different meaning. I
was choosing to finally be me, to no longer live out by society's
cookie-cutter rules and live in a robotic state.
I was alive. I was awake, and I
was relishing in the deliciousness of all that life offered when we stepped out
of the illusion. The finale of this initial transformation came when I knew the
right thing to do was move on from my job. The security was seductive, but I
became too much of a free spirit, with too big of a mission to be locked into
what can be seen as a typical 9 to 5.
Fast forward 5 years later, and I
am living the life of my dreams, knowing that I am in a spot of no going back,
only forward, towards more heart-centered living and evolving. Somehow without a
secure or traditional job, all the finances worked themselves out, and each day
I get to live out my life doing what I really love to do. Every action reflects
who I truly am on a deeper level. I am true to myself, and I get to base my life
on a service to others at the same time.
While I could go into details
about this, I will close by saying that my ultimate happiness and inner peace
came simply from doing one thing - listening to and following my heart. And so
may you too, find the courage within you to be true to yourself, listen to and
follow your own heart. The journey isn't always easy, but it is the most
joyously fulfilling one of all!
