Numerous self-help books promise a quick way to reach spiritual enlightenment. The real 'guts to glory' way is to get to know yourself. It's that simple and that complex.

Fall in Love with the Whispers of Your Heart invites you to lean in and unravel the mystery of what makes you YOU. It is overflowing with meaningful and sometimes challenging information yet a dynamic approach to discovering the gems within. Fall in Love offers a collection of thought-provoking reflections on various aspects of psychological and spiritual life. Each quote has accompanying questions to elicit thoughtful engagement and a related mantra. It is a poignant invitation to deeply understand yourself. Fall in Love is written to inspire curiosity, open to reflection, and step into an honest knowing of who you are. It is a guide to the rich tapestry that has been woven together from the threads of your life experiences. This book encourages slowing down, being gentle, and accepting all of you. It supports the process of growth and empowerment, offering tools to bring clarity and light.

Be courageous. Fall in love with the whispers of your heart.


The heart and soul of life are connected to the journey within. Let Fall in Love support you on a self-guided journey of healing, bringing comfort to the discomfort, acceptance to the rejection, and love to the unlovable. 

Fall in Love builds connection to what is in your heart instead of operating strictly from your head. “The quiet mind hears the truth of the soul.” (p.7) Understand the importance of emotions as a sign of strength and empowerment. Learn patience, perseverance, and commitment to yourself and your dreams.

Dive into deeper self-acceptance and self-worth. The reflective nature of the book allows you to vulnerably explore your inner truth…in your time…in your approach…with answers that are true for YOU. There’s no standard to be measured against, only a whole-hearted approach of gentle discovery.

Fall in Love kindles connection with others through kindling connection with yourself. It illuminates how you get stuck on expectations; awakening you to how judgment interferes with connection. It gently nudges you to dig deeper and release limiting beliefs. “Fall in Love” contains a poignant collection of poems and prayers to support your connection within.

“Finding the fire in your heart will continually lead you where you need to go.” (p.131) Discover refreshing, meaningful ways to understand what your heart needs. Reveal the eloquence you hold within through the journaling pages at the end of each chapter. Open to the inner wisdom and allow what is within to pour out.

Fall in Love offers juicy nuggets and facilitates diving in and spending time with introspective concepts, leading to transformation. It invites you to explore and navigate your inner landscape to reveal the gems hidden within. Useful mantras are offered to support identifying your inner truth.

The engrossing insights and reflections take you by the hand to elicit thoughtful engagement. Find gratitude for who you are and what you have to offer. Learn to celebrate all of you, even what you judge as unlovable. Fall in Love walks with you as you open to your soul.

With Fall in Love, you will find joy in the midst of the unexpected. You will understand what fears surround your expectations. You will reclaim mindfulness regardless of what feelings arise. "Through your feelings, you are given the opportunity to open yourself to life, to experience the richness of learning about yourself and to use that information to connect with others." (p.119)

Fall in Love will help you choose connection over perfection. The rich nature of the content wraps you in a sacred blanket of serenity and support. It brings light to what you hold in the shadows.

Reflect on past pain still being carried and find peace in its release. Understand how to be with pain to learn of its profound messages. Accept how pain is part of your path in the role of a teacher. Discover how pain is nudging you to listen within. Allow the reflection to lead to inspiration.

Experience freedom.

Release what holds you back.

Celebrate the journey.

Your whispers are waiting...

About the author

I was always a pleaser and happily obliged others. What they wanted to do, I wanted to do. Their opinion about someone or something was my opinion. When I finally slowed down to pay attention, I found myself without a voice, without an opinion, with a lot of sadness, and a divorce under my belt. It was time for me to discover who I was.

The question became how. How do I heal and reveal me?

I received my first two Reiki attunements and used those tools to dive into discovery. This opened the door to continued training in integrated energy work and crystal healing. I stepped into using these skills to serve others as a practitioner. I continue to grow and develop every day. The key discovery I made was the importance of feeling my feelings. Feeling is healing. Emotions are energy in motion and need to stay in motion to be released. I learned how my mind would create resistance to feeling where my body wanted to allow the emotions to move. The energy work facilitated the release of the blockages and unlocked my heart.

As an intuitive energy and crystal healer, I provide an emotionally safe space for people to lean in and listen to what is held within, teaching them to feel in order to heal. My practice fosters balance mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually. I also concertize as a pianist, bringing healing through sound. I love creating depth and connection beyond the notes on the page.

I am passionate about guiding others to a place of love and acceptance for who they are, the experiences they have had, and the challenges they face. Through balancing the energy within, I facilitate alignment in mind, body, and spirit. I want to inspire curiosity, shift perception, and guide transformation from the inside out. It is an honor and a blessing to continue to create and heal with my hands: writing books, my healing practice at Lux Eterna Healing, and concertizing at the piano. I am grateful for the journey we all share, embracing being the student as much as being the teacher.

Awaken. Empower. Heal.
