You're the author of your life
what kind of story are you writing?
I'm so glad your'e here!
a little bit about me
Hey, there! I'm Meredith, and I'm thrilled to have the opportunity to connect with you here.
We may never meet (though I hope we do!). And you may not ever leave a comment on the blog or send me an email (though I hope you will!). But as someone who's had the privilege of interacting with scores of brilliant people through their art, music, and writing, I know the fact that you're here means we're already connected. And that's the good stuff, right there—the whole point, really.
I've always wanted to love people close up. And while getting close to other people, holding out a neatly wrapped gift of love for them is nice, I've learned that the only way to really love close up is to let people get close to you so they can stand with you in your love for them. Notice this means that you have to be open to receive the very thing you want to give. The love you give must encompass you and the person you want to love—no small task.
So that's why I'm here, doing what I'm doing.
I have a personal writing practice that has become so intimately integrated into my life it's simply the way I move through the world now. It's helped me hone the invaluable skills of noticing, reflecting, clarifying and expressing. It carried me through a greuling trauma recovery journey, guided and supported me as I rebuilt my life on the other side, and has produced well two million words in just a four years. I'm also a writer of creative non-fiction, some of which you'll find on the blog.
Despite a formidably traditional upbringing, I managed to evolve over the years from savage skeptic to natural intuitive. I'm an Energy Interpreter, Body Intuitive, Spiritual Consultant, and Intuitive Astrologer. (Read more about what this means here) I'm also a writer, which is a kind of magic we're all more familiar with.
My educational background is in biological science and english, and my professional background has spanned from freelance writing, editing, and business consulting to lactation support, energy healing, and spiritual consulting.
I've blended over a decade of professional education and experience with the invaluable personal experiences of marriage, motherhood, and personal healing to create a unique style of wellness, personal growth, and business development services.
I've taught workshops on astrology, writing practice, energy healing, parenting, health, and wellness, and I've facilitated groups of women, mothers, community activists, volunteers, and entrepreneurs.
I have unshakable faith in love as the very fabric of the Universe, the thread that weaves through life and ties together all that is—including you and I. Love is the animating force of life.
I also have an unflinching awareness that love is not always what we express or experience. That love can become distorted until it no longer resembles itself. And that there is no greater pain than to find love missing in the places it's supposed to be.
See love even where it seems not to be, to restore order to all things, to reinvigorate the life force by eliminating what interrupts its flow.
Diving deeply into my own story liberated me from fears and beliefs that made my natural gifts inaccessible.
