Awww, the journey of a Faith Crisis is an interesting one, isn't it?
I started my YouTube channel in 2012. It was a place to share my story and document some of my feelings and memories along the way.
It has been a place to help those of you who are coming up the ranks behind me.
I felt so alone and scared, back in 2006, when my Faith Crisis (awakening) began, that I wanted to have a space for you to come and see a real face attached to the journey.
Maybe you can see yourself in some of the stories I tell?
We are a lot a like, you and me. We are pioneers in a way.
Leaving one's faith takes time and courage.
I am hear to listen, walk with you, and guide you through the process.
I just added these words to the home page of my site...
I am Amy and I am a Faith Crisis Life Coach. I lived through my own personal faith crisis and I am living proof that there is life on the other side. I know you feel alone and scared, but it will not last forever. Let your awakening (what I like to call it now) be the most beautiful thing you have ever been through. Sound impossible? Oh my dear, it is possible.
I really do believe that this process you find yourself in the middle of is actually beautiful. (albeit so damn hard)
You will look back one day and realize that what you are going through is actually a good thing. It is the beginning of you looking outside the box. It is the beginning of you thinking for yourself.
No matter what side of the coin you land on, you may stay, you may go, but you will have a completely different perspective. You can never look at religion the same way again, and that ultimately is a good thing.
It hurts right now, but it does get better.
Stick around. Things are really getting good here.
How many years have you spent sitting down on New Year's Eve or New Year's Day and written a list of your new year goals???
If you are like me...every year, right?!
Well, of course I still want to lose weight, make more money, improve my relationships, go on a nice vacation, read more etc. All those goals are in check and being worked on but...
This year I am making two changes that will give me more time for all of these things (above list) to manifest into my life; I am not keeping my phone by my bed during the night and I am getting up and out of bed at the same time (earlier) everyday (with the exception of a few weekend days here and there.)
I love my phone. It keeps me connected and it keeps me entertained. It makes it so I can escape for hours at a time, if I let myself. Sometimes, that is okay, everyday and night (into the wee hours of the mornings too) is not okay.
I resolve to connect more in real life. Phone calls, emails, date nights (sans phone,) handwritten letters, and just in general, phone free.
Will I still use my phone everyday? Yes, I use it to connect with people I am building professional relationships with, I use it to life coach, I use it to decorate my social media feeds, to stay connected with my teenagers, but I know I have that phone in my hand far too often. So that stops now.
These two things are going to change my life and I am ready for all the crazy beautiful manifesting that will come from just tweaking things a bit.
How about you? Are you really ready to make 2017 different? Share with me how you are going to do it. What are you willing to do to finally achieve the life you want?
Live now! Make changes now. Start now. Life is happening now.
