ABOUT ILLUMINATING CROSSROADS
Illuminating Crossroads supports others along their spiritual journeys to expand and gain a different perspective about themselves. Allowing them to reconnect with their authentic self, which is always present.
My name is Lisette. I am here to support others in remembering that we always have a choice. We often live like a record on repeat, yet the song might be longer or shorter. Illuminating Crossroads is a temporary stop for others to come for support during their spiritual journey to remember that they are everything they need and more. Many times with the things thrown at us in our society today, we think everything we "want or need" is outside of ourselves. The truth is, it is all within each of us. We are here to experience, learn, and grow.
Understanding that there are many paths is essential, and knowing that you can choose the way or course you want to take consciously is necessary. Our lives are like a labyrinth, not a maze. In a maze, there is only one right way to get to the end, but in a labyrinth, there are endless ways to get to the center. Yes, it might take a little "longer," but the beauty is that you still end up where you are meant to be each moment.
There are many crossroads in our lives, some "bigger" than others, but the key here is to know when you have approached one consciously. One might even say every choice we make is a crossroad, as each choice/action we decide upon lays a foundation. We are forming a community to help each other remember our power, support others, question what is presented, and make conscious decisions.
If you feel like you have come to a place where you are feeling stagnant or like you have no choice and want external support along your spiritual journey, I am here to provide that to you as best I can. Using holistic healing, and metaphysical tools, I will support you on your spiritual journey to consciously illuminate your crossroads.
"By reigniting our awareness, we illuminate other available paths for us to take—illuminating crossroads."
A LITTLE BIT ABOUT ME...
"I am not subservient to my spiritual practice, my spiritual practice serves me." - Lisette A.
It has been a bit of a journey putting this idea together but I am so blessed and happy to plant this seed and share it with you. In 2020, like many others, I lost my job and didn't know what to do next. I was working as a project coordinator for an audiovisual company and up to that point, it was the only thing I thought I was good at. I had attempted to start a blog in 2017 about spiritual growth but I only did a few posts here and there and didn’t stick with it. However, the one thing I did keep up with was working on my own personal self-growth and spiritual practice. Since I was now no longer devoting 40+ hours a week to my job in 2020, I now had even more time to do the things I loved doing. What did I love doing? I had already been studying tarot since the summer of 2017 and took a course in 2019 in addition to just exploring other parts of the metaphysical and occult world. Then it dawned on me; I wasn’t thrilled at my job anyway, so why not make a new career in the spiritual field since I love learning about all of the subjects and the history of this seemingly magical world? Without making this story too long, I’ll just say that even though it was a short amount of time, it took a lot to get here and felt like many years. I started a few other business ideas, and they all sounded great at first, but they didn’t stick and ring true to my soul. In 2020, I had been meeting so many amazing spiritual people and reiki came up. I had heard a little bit about it and got a quick session one day. Never did I think it was something I would personally enjoy doing, but I figured if it were meant to be it would be. I got a book and studied then became fascinated with the chakras even more than I already had been. I was trying to find a reiki master to learn from and nothing. It came to a point where I thought maybe it wasn’t for me. One day though it came to me to go to my favorite metaphysical shop and it was strange only because I had been avoiding going there for financial reasons since it was like a candy store for me. However, I said okay I would go and see what is waiting for me. When I arrived, I saw on a bulletin board outside the shop a flyer for reiki training! How perfect could that be, the alignment was just crazy. Since getting certified in Reiki Level 1 it was amazing and I could not stop. I wanted to learn more and continue so in January 2021 I got certified as a Reiki Master in Usui Tibetan Reiki. I still have a lot to learn but the thing is I have learned a lot and have a lot to share. There were so many moments that I was waiting for an answer on what to do instead of just trusting myself and trusting in the divine. It was like I was in this endless cycle of giving my own personal power away in many areas of my life. Becoming consciously aware of this has changed my life in so many ways. That is how Illuminating Crossroads came to me. There were so many choices I had to make this past year for myself that I would never have imagined. The most amazing thing though is those choices were highlighted and I was aware. There were a lot of times though I did wish I had support though and that is why I am wanting to support others. Having external support makes a difference sometimes but only if you are truly ready for the support. I hope that Illuminating Crossroads will grow into a beautiful spiritual community for each of us to support each other in the many areas they may throw us for a loop. So, I hope here at Illuminating Crossroads we will be able to offer you the support you may be seeking during your spiritual growth. Thank you for reading my words and I hope that you have an amazing day filled with love and truth!
