Hello there. I can’t tell you how happy I am to meet you at long last in order to share many things with you. The most important being that I’ve been able to get rid of my mask. And what a relief that has been as I can now introduce you to the real me.
The real me is the person who eventually found the courage to unmask herself to the whole world by writing my recently launched memoir – Alone. Together. Loved. Forever. A book that traces my transformation from who I thought I was into the person I was really born to be.
Prior to that I was probably one of the most secretive people imaginable - hiding behind a mask of someone who was the complete opposite of me. While also hiding practically all the events of my life that I considered to be “unhappy” - from everyone. Even from myself.
I recall, as if it were yesterday how, way back when, I consulted with a particularly enlightened psychic who told me many things. Some of which were sort of accurate, as far as I allowed myself to concede, and others not that accurate. Or maybe too accurate for me to even acknowledge at the time.
There was one thing however that she said to me as I was leaving following our session and that has stuck in my mind forever more. ‘Just when,’ she asked, as she opened the door to bid me farewell, ‘is the real Ingrid going to start loving and living in this world?’
I remember looking around nervously, before walking to my car on very shaky legs, to see if anyone else had heard her comment. But I needn’t have worried as there was nobody else around. The truth is that a very small part of me had recognised what she had said with a jolt. But I simply wasn’t anywhere near sure of how to go about answering her question then. Even to myself. Or of achieving the outcome it implied.
Many years in fact were destined to pass following the incident with the psychic before I was able to fully understand what she meant - and to allow my real self to be seen, to love and to be loved. Vital components that contribute to all of us experiencing a fulfilling lifetime on this planet.
It’s not that I walked away from the psychic that day and promptly shelved her question. No. Even though I wasn’t fully aware at the time, that very important meeting with her subconsciously started me on my path to enlightenment. One that took many twists and turns before I allowed myself to experience the ‘wake up call’ that has enabled me to see the world and everything in it as beautiful and loving. Instead of a mostly ugly place. One populated largely by unbeautiful people and events that I perceived and thus experienced. And, of course, feared. Fear being the opposite of love.
The person you see before you now is the real me who is not only experiencing being loved but is living in a loving world also of my own making. This has come about through sharing the love that I am with everyone I encounter and who in turn reflect that love straight back to me.
But I am not unique in being this person who I have introduced you to on this wonderful day and who is experiencing more and more of the eternally beautiful life of the eternally beautiful – right here on Planet Earth - with every passing day. What I describe is a way of life open to every eternal spirit who lives on this planet to unearth and experience.
I would, as a result, be delighted to answer any questions you may have about my personal journey and transformation and thereby help you to experience yours. Should you wish.
Yours in love and light, forever more, Ingrid.
