“When I came to Heather back in April 2013 for my first BodyTalk session, I had been going through several months of difficulties that had drained the spark out of me. A car accident, my son was behaving badly, a health scare, and perfect relationship with a wonderful man seemed to be unraveling for no reason. I was sad, cranky, and not feeling like a woman. Amazingly in four months it has all changed. BodyTalk has been an incredible experience. And everyone talking about the magic of the 3rd session is so right!!! In my 3rd session I let go of control and ego and let Heather and BodyTalk be in charge! The session was amazing! I have been having the time of my life, my health issue is in control, I have total clarity about where I want to take my business, and something truly awesome has happened between my boyfriend and I. We were able to have the long, deep talk that we both had been afraid to have for so long. It has totally shifted our relationship to a place where we are going to be able to grow from.
Heather is so caring and brings so much energy to her work! I am so lucky to have her as part of my journey. I can't wait to see what future BodyTalk sessions create!!!”

Hello Kauai! Notes on Following One’s Bliss


Follow your bliss.
If you do follow your bliss,
you put yourself on a kind of track
that has been there all the while waiting for you,
and the life you ought to be living
is the one you are living.

When you can see that,
you begin to meet people
who are in the field of your bliss,
and they open the doors to you.

I say, follow your bliss and don’t be afraid,
and doors will open
where you didn’t know they were going to be.
If you follow your bliss,
doors will open for you that wouldn’t have opened for anyone else.
–Joseph Campbell

Campbell said it best – and I felt so called to this invitation that I have the “Follow Your Bliss” magnet on my fridge. I say it frequently, but follow the advice less than I would like. I followed my bliss when I left the extremist religion I was raised in (the Jehovah’s Witnesses) and began a new life. I followed my bliss when I quit my corporate job to freelance write full-time (something I was told I couldn’t do).

And now, today, I have followed my bliss by leaving my home in Oregon and moving to Kauai, Hawaii to live on the beach. This has been a lifelong dream.

Accomplishing it has given me more joy than I can even put into words here. Poetry is pouring out of me and I have spent many moments with tears in my eyes and love in my heart. Joseph Campbell is so right. The Universe has conspired with me as I set out on this journey, and the right people and circumstances have all been provided for me.

Life is such magic.

But you cannot fully grasp the magic of life until you do this very thing – until you follow your bliss. And when you do, you will not BELIEVE what will come together for you. The people that will drop off from your life (and rightly so), the amazing people that will step into your life (blissfully so) and the insights that seem to automatically download into your consciousness (even more surprisingly so).

Why is this?
When we are BEING our bliss (and for me that is living at the beach), we are SO in alignment with who we REALLY ARE, that there is no more struggle, no more strife, only total and complete joy.

I realized over the course of this journey (which is only really beginning) a few key things:

-In times of great transition, the people who are truly your friends step up, the ones who are not (this includes family too), also show themselves. This provides an amazing opportunity for clarity and more intimate bonds with those who are truly in alignment with you.

-Nothing else matters, but right now. Sitting on Poipu beach on Friday, I realized this. It doesn’t matter what I do in my life, what matters is that I’ve done this. That I had a stirring within me, a voice and a message that said “go” and I went. And the going provided me with so much more than I could have ever imagined.

-Happiness is a feeling. Joy is a state of being. I can feel “happy” about circumstances in my life, but when I am living in alignment with WHO I REALLY AM, I feel joy that no outside circumstances can impact.

These are just a few of my realizations and I’m eager to see what’s around the bend.

Thank you to all of you who have supported me in the attaining of this dream (InsideTrack, JenP, and all the rest). I am so excited to see the next bits of unfolding.

And most of all, I have to thank the Universe and Mr. Campbell for reminding me of who I REALLY AM and allowing me to be that.

Much love & blessings,
Heather

    Great read, Heather. So nice to hear about your transition and what it is like, and remember what it is like for each one of us as we change and unfold, no matter where we are.

    I had to laugh as On Call is also one of my favorite Kings on Leon songs…talk about synchronicity! ;) Continue to follow your follow you bliss, and to be on call, and to be open, and willing, and your path will continue to unfold before you. We are with you on your journey, in spirit always.
