Introducing The Founder Of Divine Maven

ARE YOU CRYSTAL (BALL) CLEAR ON WHO YOU WANT TO BE, WHAT YOUR UNIQUE GIFTS ARE AND WHAT YOU WANT TO DO WHEN YOU GROW UP, EVEN IF YOU’RE ALREADY IN YOUR 30S?

If you answered NO to any of these questions, You’re Not Alone!!! It’s time to introduce myself and share a bit of my soul searching, find my passion, figure out my purpose in life journey with you.

Everyone says once you hit your thirties…by now, you should have your life figured out… Right? For me, that was totally wrong.

“Adulting?!? Is there like a guide book for that?”

I started dating my husband at the age of 16. At the age 18, I got pregnant with my first son. Before my 30’s we had our last child. My family is everything to me and always will be. They are my favorite humans in the entire universe and I would do anything for them.…Basically, that’s what I did.

I was so focused on them that I stopped focusing on myself. The title of wife and mom felt like the only thing that defined who I was as a person. Like so many wives and parents out there, I put my life on hold to raise a family. I didn’t realize I was sabotaging my inner self by stepping back and owning the title wife and mother. I started feeling like I had no idea who I was on the inside. I needed to figure myself out, get back to who I was or find who I wanted to be. All my energy went to my kids and husband, and I needed to do something for me, to get Christina back. I didn’t even know what I wanted to do. What I was good at, my passions, hobbies. Who the heck am I? I felt like I didn’t know who I was anymore.

I am not talking about the mother or wife title, but me…

Who was Christina?!? I needed to find ME again. My instant response to the question “Who am I?” usually consisted of my name, age, sex, where I was born, my marital status and that I was a mom. But that’s not really who I am or who we are for that matter. There’s so much more to us than that.

When people looked at me they recognized me as a wife, a mother, a sister or a daughter.  They didn’t see who I was as a person just a title. And that’s how I seen myself to.

I DIDN’T ALWAYS FEEL LIKE I HAD THE ABILITY TO ATTRACT MAGIC IN MY LIFE

I lacked clarity of my own souls purpose. I felt lost. How can I be my most authentic self to my family if I didn’t know who I was on the inside 

I felt like I was going thru an identity crisis when I hit my 30’s

ENOUGH WAS ENOUGH, I MADE A RESOLUTION…AND YES, I KEPT IT!!!

I received a phone call from my mom and dad, moms in the hospital and not feeling good, this was the beginning of the summer. By the end of the summer my mom calls me and tells me they found out what is wrong with her, she has a very rare blood cancer and only has a year to live. 4 days later she was gone.

This was a couple years after I turned 30, my mom suddenly passing away hit me hard, (maybe someday I’ll open up more about that, but this isn’t that story) I went through a whirlwind of emotions, but It also made me realize that time stops for no one and that I needed to figure my $h!t out stat! That new years I made a resolution…And YES!!! I kept it. My resolution was to start trying to do things for me, Christina, and also to take everything negative out of my life, family, work, friends, anything and everything that wasn’t serving me and to start bringing all things positive in my life. My mom would of wanted that for me.

So off I went into the world, trying new things and trying to find what lite my fire. My husband started calling me a hobby jumper for a bit after that because I didn’t know what I was good at and started trying all sorts of random things. My family supported me throughout my whole find my mission in life adventure, and that right their made it more magical than I could ever hope for. I started dabbing into complete randomness, yoga, astrology, tarot, hula hooping just to name a few.

To make a long story short, by doing different things to find my place, that’s where I found me, Christina!

Life can change in an instant and I realize that passion is just not one thing. It’s not a hidden talent or a perfected hobby. If you keep on trying to find that “ONE” thing, you might not ever find it. Passion changes in people all the time and I had the belief that I didn’t have a passion or purpose. I came to realize that your passion or purpose changes, like you change. You know the saying ” here’s to the next chapter in life” well, that’s the same way your passion or purpose plays. It changes and grows with the seasons or should I say chapters in life.

I know who I am but am always growing and willing to grow. Never stop growing and never stop believing that you can be who you want to be or who you were or always knew you would be.
