At first glance, you might assume that my sister and I have nothing in common. Her favorite clothing store is Ann Taylor; mine is Betsey Johnson. She opts for honey-coloured highlights; I go for pink. She is highly educated with a Master’s degree in Organized Systems Renewal; I am a proud graduate of the school of rock.
But upon closer examination, you will discover that my sister and I actually have a lot in common. Take our bookshelves for instance – they are virtually identical. David Hawkins, Marianne Williamson, Eckhart Tolle… both of our libraries overflow with the same spiritual and self-help classics. We are both passionate about the evolution of human consciousness.
The reason I find this interesting is that a lot of “spiritual” people feel like the black sheep of their family. No one “gets” them. They feel alone. And yet here I am, with a sister whom I can talk to about present moment awareness, yoga, energy medicine and pretty much any other topic on the “woo woo” list. Pretty cool if you ask me.
I also want to mention that my sister is a brilliant therapist and coach. She just opened up a practice in Toronto, so book an appointment with her if you live in the area. If you don’t live in Toronto, I’m sure she’d offer you a session via Skype if you ask nicely. Click here to visit her website.
On a side note, I just realized that one of the reasons that my sister and I have identical libraries is because we steal each other’s books. So Ang, if you’re done with Three Magic Words, I’ll have it back now.
