I'm looking for a very reflective and/or contemplative, but fun and playful girl. :)
so a little about me....
I was really good at sports growing up having played basketball, football, and volleyball in high school and again volleyball at the Division 1 level in college for Loyola University Chicago.
I studied, mechanical engineering for two years at Northern Illinois University, then transferred to Loyola to play volleyball and graduated with a degree in environmental studies. I ran an exterior home painting business the summer after I graduated, and moved to Ashland, OR to pursue my interests in alternative medicine and metaphysics. I needed to heal and to reflect.
I grew up in a suburb of Chicago as a normal kid. I loved playing sports, playing with friends, and I didn't really think about anything, because I knew what I wanted to do ALL the time. There was never a moment, until the age of 13 or so that I even realized I existed so to speak. I was running on automatic. Then I woke up....almost instantaneously, in a big......BIG way.
I had quite a few interesting things happen in my life.......
When I was introduced to Edgar Cayce my sophormore year in high school, I began reading about all sorts of metaphysical subject matter, personal growth, traditional physics, and ET/UFOs, and it took about 15 years to finally get saturated. I had many unanswered questions that I had a burning desire to know the answers to such as, why we were here, the structure of both physical and non physical reality, did extraterrestrials really exist and why did I care so much? where did they come from, how did they get here, and how did they perceive the universe? I wanted to know whether psychic phenomena, like telepathy and telekinesis was real and how these skills could be acquired and developed. I was very interested in the notion of past lives and continually searched for many years, in my very active dream life for symbols, guides, and answers to all of the questions I had. I needed to create an understanding of religion and spirituality that could make sense to me, based on my own experiences and logic. I also needed to know how I could understand what had happened to me physically (another story).
I made enough money running a summer painting business after college to finally start the life I wanted to. I moved to Ashland, Oregon, for a little library there, called the Rogue Valley Metaphysical Library. I spent many years reflecting, contemplating, reading, doing yoga, meditating, enjoying nature, and finding peace in my mind, body, and spirit. Living in Ashland, next to the mountains, in the backyard of the two of the most inspiring and selfless people I know, in my travel trailer, with an open field in front of my door, with the perfectly brilliant star lit night sky, next to a small creek, at the perfect temperature in the middle of the night, while only hearing the crickets and running water in the background was the best and most incredible time of my life. It soothed my soul in a very light and enriching way. It was very healing. I lived my own personal dream. And it was perfect.
After I finally rejuvenated myself to the point where I could work again, I decided to move to the bay area to pursue my new goals.
Since then dived deeply into developing a career in the solar industry and have become very interested in creating financial freedom for myself through the vehicle of real estate so I can pursue all my dreams with no strings attached.
I am a very spiritual person and am constantly checking in with my heart to know what feels right. In all situations, I strive to do what is best for all concerned.
