Hi there! I can’t tell you how happy I am to meet you. For many reasons. The first is that I’ve been able to take off my mask and the second is, that by doing so, I can look you straight in the eye and introduce you to the real me.
The real me is the person who eventually found the courage to unmask myself to the whole world by writing my recently launched Memoir – Alone. Together. Loved. Forever. A transformation of who I thought I was into the person I was really born to be.
Prior to that I was probably the most secretive person imaginable - hiding behind a mask of someone who was the complete opposite of me. Someone who had chosen to hide practically all the events of my life that I perceived to be “unhappy” from everyone – even from myself.
I recall, as if it were yesterday, how I consulted way back when with a particularly enlightened psychic who told me many things – some of which were somewhat accurate as far as I allowed myself to concede - and others not that accurate. Or maybe too accurate for me to acknowledge at the time.
But the one thing that she said to me as I was leaving following our session, and that has stuck in my mind forever more, was this: ‘Just when,’ she said, 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 to see if anyone else had heard what she had said – but there was nobody else around - before walking to my car on very shaky legs. 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 how to go about answering her question then. Even to myself. Or achieving the outcome it implied.
Many years in fact were destined to pass following the incident with the psychic and before I was able to fully understand what she meant and thereby allow my true self to be seen and to love and be loved. The two vital ingredients that assure us of experiencing a fulfilling lifetime on this planet.
It’s not that I walked away from the psychic that day and promptly shelved her question in the hope that it would be answered by whoever could answer it. No. Even though I wasn’t aware at the time, that meeting with her subconsciously started me on a 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. Instead of a mostly ugly place, populated by largely unbeautiful people and events - that I previously 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 of my own making. 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 the eternally beautiful life or the eternally beautiful every day. It is a way of life that is open to every eternal spirit who lives on this planet to unearth and experience.
I am therefore more than happy to answer any questions you may have about my personal experience and transformation and thereby help you to turn it into your experience too. Should you wish it to be.
Yours in love and light, forever more, Ingrid.
