I have been in a very weird place the last 6 years. It feels like I have been growing and birthing a baby. However, I am not having a human baby (for the fourth time) but I have watched my whole life come together to create a space for Truth. See, Vive Alchemy is not a business. I did not create it nor am I using it to find a new angle to get people to diet and workout. No, VIVE Alchemy is my truth and it is not just my truth spiritually but it is my whole truth emotionally, mentally, physically and relationally. It is all of me and all things past (experiences, skills, mistakes, successes) merging with all things present to create something tangible that can live, grow and evolve beyond me.
How does everything in my past, who I am, what I believe and my dreams, hopes passions and truth merge to become a gift that I can hold in my hands and share with the world? Honestly, I am not sure how all this has happened other than ALCHEMY. I don’t know if you are familiar with alchemy but it is an old mysterious and magical process of taking basic elements and combining them in just the right way to make gold.
My life has not been so much of a journey but more of a process like alchemy. In fact, it was the divine Alchemist, who took my truths, my design, past mistakes, successes, hopes, dreams, passions, dislikes, likes, fears, weaknesses, strengths, skills, talents, experiences and who I am and transformed it, working all things for my good…transforming it to gold.
During this process, I was undone. Not only was the delusion of control ripped completely out of my hands, but I was exposed at very deep levels. It was in this lowly place where I found myself weak, vulnerable, needy, fragile, sensitive, transparent, desperate and dependent on something bigger than me to discover exactly who I was, how I was designed to live and what I was designed to give to the world. It seems that all the ways that I had tried to fill myself up with strength, independence, toughness, security and control just got in the way of me being me and living the life of love I was designed for.
I do believe that you find your true-self when all the performing, earning and proving has stopped and you are forced to be how you are designed. It’s here you discover the best parts of you and even the worst parts of you. In other words, it is here where you can be honest and it is this truth that creates the space to be known and accepted, and where truth and love overflows to transform us, our relationships, our communities and our world. This is exactly what happened to me.
Everything that I hid behind or ran to for cover had to be removed, so that I could stand in this wide-open space naked and unashamed to see love shining through my weakness, vulnerability, neediness and desperation. So welcome friends, this is me and this is my gift to you to rest and remember hope, health, honesty, and happiness. I invite you to create the space to be with me and allow me the privilege to help you rest and remember who you are and how you are naturally designed to be healthy, holy , whole and human
