About Lise's Journey

Once Upon a Time...

 

Once upon a time, there was a young girl named Lise who was certain she was on the most direct path to Mount Happiness. As she ambitiously climbed up towards the summit, she found approval, recognition, respect, money, and excitement. Surely, the peak of Happiness was not much further…

Unfortunately, the higher she climbed, the more out of breath, anxious, and confused she became. She asked herself "I am lost? Where is Happiness? Is my compass broken?"

 

Fear began to consume her. She became paralyzed. As she lay face down on the cold, unforgiving ground, Lise became aware of this neurotic need for more, more, more.

 

Standing still had always been unacceptable to her. She needed to keep moving to feel good, but she was exhausted. Lise deeply craved rest and comfort, but she believed getting to the peak of Mount Happiness was the only way she could prove to herself that she was worthy, that she was enough. Lise was torn and disoriented.

Alone in her darkness, Lise began to hear the whispers of her own heart through the deafening silence of grace. Her heart sang “I am your true compass. I will not lead you astray.” Lost in her despair, she did not want to listen. She didn’t know how to listen. She felt so disillusioned and broken.

Despite her torment, the stars continued to joyfully light the sky. Lise began to remember that she was made of stardust. She started to wonder if there could be more to her than just a physical body.

 

"Maybe I'm not really lost after all", she thought to herself.

 

"Maybe it's time for me to look at things from a different perspective."

Eventually, Lise realized that the summit of Mount Happiness was nothing but a mirage, an illusion that would always be out of reach.

 

Happiness was never “out there”, in the distance or the future. It had always been right here, in her heart.

For over 30 years now, Lise's heart has guided her towards joy, peace, wellbeing, vitality, creativity, and freedom. Thanks to divine grace, she has discovered the true source of happiness and power. Now it is her honour and privilege to help others on their journey.
