You just never know where life is going to take you when you answer your calling.

It is said that the soul's journey is to whatever creates more love, or a greater capacity for love and to love and of love...

With each step on the path of purpose and new wave of experiences that challenge me, I feel that to be true, I continue to love more fully and deeply than I knew was possible or that I was ever capable of....

I am excited to share with you that I will be moving to Norway in July. More specifically to the Arctic Circle of Norway, to the city of Tromsø.

My new location on the globe implies a mission, the Arctic and its unique causes, have personal significance for me, and to be able to contribute to the preservation and promotion of its natural and cultural resources is an opportunity of a lifetime.

It was an auspicious day in April 2010, when I saw a picture of the Lofoten Islands in the Arctic Circle of Norway, and became completely lit up by the idea of visiting those distant mountains and experiencing the magic of the midnight sun. What I knew was that I had to go there and to write.

Less than two weeks later I booked a plane ticket taking me all the way to the Arctic Circle. I became obsessed with this feeling and desire to go there and never come back, I declared to my friends that "I am moving to Norway" and I repeated "I'm moving to Norway, I’m moving to Norway!" it as if it were a mantra and the repetition of it, would compel my life to reflect what I felt in my heart.

Granted, there were a lot of things afoot in my life at that time, which I have a better understanding of now; my heart could no longer manage the constant longing and heartache and my soul was calling out to be heard. Some part of me knew I had to change my life or die, and so I began to make drastic changes.

That trip to the Arctic Circle of Norway in 2010 set me firmly on the path of internal and external transformation. Nothing short of a spiritual awakening.

When I returned from Norway that summer— I moved to Seattle, Washington. Landing in a place that felt and appeared about as close to Norway as one could find themselves in the United States. Later, I resided in Ballard, a Seattle neighborhood with deep Nordic roots, where homes fly the Norwegian flag, and each year they throw a 17th of May Celebration, in honor of Norway's Constitution Day that ends in Bergen Place Park. I always felt that my dream had been fulfilled in ways that I couldn’t have planned.

The Olympic and Cascade Mountains, as well as Mount Rainier and Mount Baker, the Puget Sound, the Pacific Northwest Ocean, the San Juan Islands, and Seattle would have much medicine for me.

Though, life had in store another turn of events, ones I couldn’t have fathomed, and I returned to the place of my birth in Virginia and once again the Shenandoah Mountains became my home. Here I have experienced a different kind of medicine, one that could not have been received at a distance or worked through in theory. An experience of coming back to my roots, reconnecting to my spiritual home, healing of my past and familia relationships at a deep and transformative level, and ultimately integrating the whole of who I am—in this lifetime. And who I came here to be....

Nine years later, the dream of the Arctic Circle never left me. Occasionally I would be visited by the Spirit of Whale, or have dreams of the Mountains there, and visions of the Spirit of the Glacier living inside my heart.

Honestly, the thought of being alone in a foreign country, learning a new language, going weeks without seeing the sun, and living with constant cold temperatures — frightens me a bit.

And yet here I go....

When I return from Peru in June, I will be packing up my home and moving to Tromsø, a beautiful city about 200 miles into the Arctic Circle, famous for its spectacular Northern Lights, and venturing out from there— bringing my cross country skis with me as my only form of personal transportation.

Exploring deeply, and experiences in nature are essential to my work with others and keep me inspired and hopeful as a human being. I relish being out of doors, and I experience nature as a kind of medicine.

The years of working one on one with clients as a mentor have been committed to rekindling each individual’s awareness of their personal connection to the natural world around them and their reason for being alive in the world at this time.

I help them to see what is already within them, but not easily perceived through our modern lens of individualism and consumerism. In exploring deeply our own divinity and purposeful gifts, one can find the guidance and resources to bring to life the most extraordinary of dreams.

With this dream becoming manifest in my own life, I understand at a deep and profound level.... that we must do the work, become a clear conduit of the Divine, and be the person who can hold the vision, in order to have the strength and courage to act on our inner guidance to bring the dream into reality.

In my next phase of work, I hope to inspire more people to listen to their soul’s calling, and cause them to look a little closer at themselves, at the natural environment that surrounds them, and at other people and their beliefs of separation, race, culture, and religion.  I will continue working one-on-one with clients in Mentorship capacity, as I dive deeper into the ancient wisdoms and study of the light. There are apprenticeship positions beginning in June. Please go ➳ to the link and apply if you are interested. 

Our life purpose is to use our own personal transformation to help transform society.

I will begin leading spiritual journeys to the Arctic and the Lofoten Islands, to experience the medicine of this land as soon as 2020 and I will continue to lead spiritual journeys to Peru to sit in sacred Ceremony once a year.

I understand this is just the beginning... not the end destination, but a whole new journey—with different vehicles, different mountains, different medicine to learn and to receive— a new road enlightened by all the bright insights that have come to pass on this part of the journey...

May you find the courage to listen to your soul's calling and the strength to walk your path of purpose.

AHO. ARI. 

Much love to you as you walk your path of purpose!!!

Your Authentic Self : Guided Meditation [Free Audio Download]

Be who you want, Healing, Inspiring, Learning to Love YourselfChloë RainComment

At your fullest potential...with no fears...

Who are you?

Listen to the guided meditation above, where you will connect deeply with your authentic self and receive renewed enthusiasm for being just who you truly are. (Less than 45 minutes in entirety.) You may also download the audio to listen on your own time and use the questions below for reflection.


May you be blessed with the peace of knowing your authentic self deeply.

Turn your attention inward...even more deeply inside...to connect with your authentic self.

What is most important to you in life? What do you value? What makes you happy? What makes you smile? Can you remember the last time you laughed?

Now consider what makes you who you are. Finding your authentic self involves learning who you truly are. Your authentic self is the real you, the person you are truly meant to be. Your authentic self is the person you are at your core, the person you can be if nothing holds you back.

Imagine the person you believe yourself to be right now. Now imagine you could strip away all the things that hold you back from your full potential. Imagine self-doubt dissolving...being replaced with confidence and self-assurance. Imagine all the things that get in the way of success...such as circumstances, lack of resources, lack of forgiveness, illness, baggage from the past...anything that is holding this person back in any way at all...

See these problems dissolving ... disappearing ... going away...

Now imagine yourself, standing in the empty room. What is left? Who are you when all those barriers are stripped away?

This person is you. Imagine who you are at the core...the pure character that is left when there is nothing to get in the way of complete self-expression.

Think of your desires...what motivates you? What drives you to get out of bed in the morning? What interests you and stirs your heart?

Think about your personality and your personal identity... think about the characteristics that are left when all barriers are removed and all fears have gone away.

At your fullest potential, your simplest form...with no fears...who are you?

Think about your energy...

Imagine something that makes you feel happy...what is it?

Think of some things you enjoy...things that you like to do...

Think about all the characteristics of the person who is left when all barriers and fears are removed.

Now create one final picture in your mind. Imagine, in as much detail as you can, the person you want to be. Imagine your ideal self...

How would this person behave? What does this person, your authentic self, value? What motivates this ideal self? What personal characteristics are present in this ideal version of you? Imagine all the details of the person you most want to be.

The image in your mind right now, of this ideal person, is YOU.

This is your authentic self. This is who you are. At the core, beneath all of life's getting in the way...this is you.

Now allow yourself to step inside this image, and fully become this person. Become who you are.

For this moment, just be...simply be your authentic self.

You have always been this person...you always will be your authentic self...a positive, confident person. Underneath the challenges, the baggage, the demands of living life...this is the real you that will always be with you.

Keep the image of your authentic self with you as you go about the rest of your day. Express this true self...and allow you to simply be you.

Thank you for being you. Thank you for joining me on this journey.

With Love,
