Are You Ready To Return To Your Divine Nature?
A Nudge From Your Intuition
You might relate to all or part of what I am about to share. There is a dynamic that may have developed when you were young. On a deep level, you knew that there was more love available than you were receiving. So you asked yourself two questions: Who do I need to be to get more love? The next question was: What parts of myself do I need to hide in order to receive more love? The parts you chose to hide would have included your unique gifts. What started as an unconscious agreement with your parents or caregivers, created a template you applied to all parts and phases of your life. It is likely a nudge from your intuition that has brought you here, as you look for answers and support. You are likely feeling stuck in many aspects of your life and you are missing, or longing for a different way of living or being. The force or pressure beneath the surface creating this feeling is your inner child, your soul, your intuition, your spirit, your most inward, protected and original voice, who has finally gathered enough strength to ask you to respond or answer the call. Upon recognizing this call, you may feel any combination of empowerment, fear, joy, and confusion. It may be hard to know how or where to begin living with this new truth and honouring this voice.
Answering The Call
A wise part of you has called you here to read these words. This part of you could also be described as “the you who knows”. This voice of your inner self could be considered a primal wildness wanting to awaken and be re-animated into your life. This wildness is your natural and original energy that wants to be expressed and integrated into your being. This energy has always been waiting for the time to re-emerge, and the first step is to answer the call. The call can show up as a whisper, or if ignored for long enough, it can show up as intense turbulence or suffering in your everyday life. Regardless of the intensity, some part of you observes these experiences and has a deep knowing that something needs to change. You may ask yourself, why is this pattern, person, situation or thing repeating again? The repetition is the call, an invitation to bring a deep awareness and change to your life. Saying yes to this journey takes strength, courage, and commitment. Perhaps, on some level, you know there will be no going back to the life that you had, as this is about rebirth and powerful transformation. As you look in the mirror and take responsibility for your life, you will step over a threshold and begin to transform.

blind-spots to you with universal love opens the door to change and growth."

You Can't Do This Alone
Our original wounding often happens in our early relationships, which creates a template or pattern that we then unconsciously repeat in our future relationships. When you say yes to this journey you are allowing yourself to heal and consciously create new patterns. The key is to share the process with someone whom you feel safe with. This allows you to be 100% open and honest and comfortable enough to receive the reflections of your blind-spots. Are you the type of person that cleans the house before the housekeeper comes over? In the context of counselling, you might be inclined to only show your best while deflecting the truths that linger under the surface. To ensure you have the best experience and results, I will walk with you as we create a space that allows you to share openly and reveal these truths. Together we will do the work of slowly transmuting your unconscious shadows into your light, which will allow the voice of your inner-self to re-emerge. One of the many gifts I bring to this work is the ability to quickly create a gentle, loving, and safe space that allows you to show up with all your wounds and stories so you can love them into wisdom.
Exploring Emotional Trauma
You may relate to these symptoms of feeling stuck:
"The essence of trauma is disconnection from ourselves."
- Gabor Maté
I have spent thousands of hours working with people in groups and individually and it has become clear that our emotional trauma and the resulting unconscious patterns, creates all symptoms of our suffering, both personally and in our relationships. In other words, what happened to us in the past impacts our present experiences, which means sometimes we must look back to move forward. The hard work, the real work, is to bring awareness to the unconscious repeating patterns playing out underneath our suffering. To use a gardening metaphor, we must remove the weed and all the roots rather than just cutting off the top of the weed. To re-awaken your original inner voice, your inner wildness, we must consider the source of the emotional trauma held in your body.
A Little About Ross
I see myself as a blend of elder, life coach, and counsellor without the letters behind my name. Although, I often joke that if I did have letters behind my name they would be SOL (School of Life). I am passionate about helping you see yourself and your unconscious patterns clearly so that you can learn to embody unconditional love and self-acceptance. I will bring compassionate wisdom, unconditional love, and fierce honesty to your sessions. "Fierce Honesty" may sound harsh, but it is, rooted in love and care. My goal, is for you to feel deeply seen, supported and accepted as you do this work. My #1 passion and zone of genius is working with people individually and in groups. I completed my life coach training in 2006 and have been on my journey of personal growth since 1999. More about Ross.
"My experience working with Ross was truly a gift, I went to treatment expecting an institutional feel and Ross made it seem like I was at home. He is understanding, trustworthy, caring and truly has a passion for helping people. I truly believe that if it was not for Ross I would not be sober and thriving today. If I could find a way to re-pay Ross for what he has given me I would, but it is impossible to quantify. That is the thing about Ross he cares so much and never expects anything in return. Thank you Ross, you are truly one of a kind."
"Ross supported me to the best mental/emotional health of my life. He equipped me with knowledge of my self that continues to fuel my growth daily. It took a genuine commitment to the process for both of us, and it was not easy for either of us, but he showed up for me while showing me how to show up for my self. Honouring who I am at the core. I know there are a lot of men who don't have this kind of support in their lives. This is an excellent investment in who you want to be, with strength and freedom from the chains we grew up being shackled with. What if you could wake up one day and truly be who you feel yourself to be? Ross can help you get there. He is the sage of the "choose your own adventure."
"I am so grateful for Ross and his intuitive counselling service. I have seen Ross a couple times now and both times I am left with a lot of dots connected and a lot of ah-ha moments. He's gone into a mixture of human design and gene keys work, and we found a lot of connections and things that just made sense in my life and personality. Ross has a very empathetic and compassionate energy about him, and he is very intuitive and in tuned with peoples body language. I was able to feel seen, heard and understood in our sessions. I would recommend seeing Ross for any extra support on your healing and self-discovery journey!"
