When you learn to integrate spirituality into your daily life as you thrive to be the best you can be, there is no limitation as to what you can achieve. The right spiritual practice is the juice. It's the fuel. The right mindset is they vehicle.
I graduated with a degree in computer science, worked with Fortune 200 and Fortune 500 companies for 11 years. I had a successful corporate career that brought me much reward and satisfaction. I still live that life today.
Additionally, I am a priestess of the Yoruba Orisa tradition, initiated in the mysteries of ancestral science. That is the shift that saved me.
My career and building wealth always felt easy but I struggled internally with identity issues because of traumatic experiences I suffered in childhood and as a young adult. The environment that should have supported me, failed me instead. I knew I was hurt and that this hurt fractured my relationships and outlook on life. I needed healing. The healing I needed took me to the beginning and that is where I met the Orisas and ancestral spirits.
The Orisas taught me to accept the lessons of great pain
in order derive joy from the blessing of life.
I learned that there is as much hardness in the soft
as there is softness in the hard.
My work with Orisas and ancestral spirits helped me grow in wisdom and humility. Humility is grounding. It lends lifelong lessons that eventually grooms the apt student into their better and truest selves.
I also learned that there is no limitation
as to what you can achieve when you live
in alignment with the universal forces.
Reaching emotional and spiritual balance is key to achieving personal success and joy. When you learn to integrate spirituality into your daily practical life as you thrive to be the best you can be, there is no limitation as to what you can achieve.
