I am the author of Super Spark, an inspirational speaker, a kundalini yoga instructor and the owner of Arjan Publishing. Just a few years ago, I could have never imagined any of those titles appearing after my name. However, I must say the best title of all is that of mom.
In February 2009, I began asking some big questions about my life: Why am I here? Is this all there is to life? Who am I? That summer, in search of answers, I went to a 28-day intensive Kundalini Yoga teacher training in New Mexico. To my amazement, I found that when you ask these questions, answers start to appear. I became fascinated with self-improvement techniques such as affirmations and visualizations. The concept of ‘thoughts become things’ seemed too simple, too crazy and, if it really worked, why didn’t we all know about this stuff?
I was so intrigued, that I started reading every book I could get my hands on. I was discovering the power of affirmations, the power of thoughts, the power of now and realizing that we create our life and that there are no limits to what we can accomplish. I went from total disbelief in the power of these concepts, to believing in them and finally applying them in my own life and, lo and behold, it actually worked! Thanks to my new-found knowledge, I changed my life from existing to truly living. My whole outlook on life changed from thinking that life is a never ending to-do list to realizing that life is amazing, full of beauty and that the purpose of life is to find joy. Go figure!
I was inspired to write a children’s book, Super Spark, that summarized all the incredible concepts I read about. I decided to publish the book myself. To me, the book has a magical quality because of Ray Ocampo's illustrations. I am blessed to have been able to work with an artist of his calibre.
You can read about the history of making Super Spark here.
After doing many Super Spark readings in classes, my message evolved into a school presentation. I started going from class to class and then developed a school presentation that I share with up to 500 students at one time.
And once again the message has evolved and I have developed a program for corporations. Igniting individual greatness and having happy people at work creates a positive work place and a successful business.
For me, my Super Spark book, meditations and presentations are proof that dreams really do come true. If you believe in yourself, visualize and feel the outcome you want and are able to hold onto your dreams no matter what others think, you can truly accomplish anything! I love sharing positive messages and good energy with children, teens and adults. Empowering people to discover their own greatness that lies within is just about the best job on earth.
On my website you will also find my blog Spiritual Shenanigans where I share my knowledge, experiences and life lessons that I continue to learn every day. I am well aware that I am still a work in progress, but I figure it could be inspiring, entertaining and somewhat humorous to take others along for the ride.
And last but certainly not least, thought I'd share a picture of my children. Here are my two little superheroes, Tyler and Ryan. I feel very grateful to be their mom. Love, love, love them!
Oh, how they grow up so fast!!
