Have you ever done a basic year outline of your life see what accomplishments you had and the challenges you got through? It's part of a self-love tool ❀️.

I recommend keeping at least 5 things you are 😊 proud of on a small, laminated card in your pocket when you feel blue to pull out and remind yourself πŸŽ‰

🌈1967 born a Lutheran and knew there had to be more than one way of getting into heaven as heaven wasn’t even outside us--- pretty early on.

❀️1972 or 1973 saw my first angel.

😭1982 saw my first mental health unit for talking about seeing Angels.

1985 moved to Europe as a jazz, blues, and house singer....until 1994.

1986 /1987 .. WENT FOR Harmonic CONVERGENCE - found I was not alone in seeing Angels and beings of Divine Light   LIVED IN GLASTONBURY England  ..met and studied with Druids and Krishnas...

🀠1990 sang with and cooked for a slew of famous jazz legends ..Nina Simone , Clark Terry , Kenny Drew Senior, Christian McBride, Met Harry Sweets Edison, and Benny Carter.  I told him that my current boyfriend said that  I had to get an ABORTION or I had to move out ..Benny said to move out.

1990 I moved out back to Switzerland and saw one of my best friends, to this day, Michelle, after just having a MISCARRIAGE and lost my mind.

1990 flew back to Detroit where my dad lived and he put me in a 5150 rightly so..... 😭 After suicidal talk....if you ever have had a miscarriage you know it sucks big time... πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™and did not honor or remember this Swiss trauma until 2023 during big EGO DEATH Swiss retreat.
