Intimate Love Note to my soul family

If you're reading this then something in you desired to drop in and acknowledge the beautiful sisters in your life that you consider your soul family. If you find you do not have this yet, may this love note help you access that place within so you can begin to call incredible women into your field.

Below is an email I sent to my sisters. I share this incredibly tender note with you because you are part of my Sacred Circle Community and I feel one should not only provide you action steps, strategy, and free business content but rather show up and invite you on my life’s journey.

Behind the emails you receive is a human being who desires love and family. Who desires growth in her business because she is here to serve you. A woman who is going to get married and desires nothing more than sisters gathering together in circle after the marriage ceremony to honor this significant initiation.


A Sister Love Note

Eric and I settled on the date of our wedding well before he asked me to marry him. Based on our Vedic Astrology, it seems the most auspicious date for us to have our sacred ceremony was May 23rd at 3pm.

I didn't realize that when Eric took my hand, with Sofia (our puppy), by his side and asked me if I would be willing to create a family together that the lessons would come flooding in.

I'm incredibly grateful that I am on this healing journey and now, at the age of 40, am heading towards being Sora Surya Schilling No. Each day has been an initiation, an understanding, a healing, and honoring, and a coming home to myself.

If the Great Mother finds it is in alignment with our path, Eric and I desire to have a child. If, when, this occurs, our child will be the first of his or her kind. My lineage backs forever in time to the land of Korea and no one, not even my cousins, have yet to marry outside of that. I, and then my brother will be the first. We are stepping into a new line of beings; our future.

I share all of this because I love you. I met each of you during pivotal stages of my awakening.

Let me explain...

Sisterhood truly began with Marni, my best friend from high school. She showed me what family could look like and I love her dearly. She remembers the teenage years that I cannot seem to hold onto.

Then came Manisha. We spent countless hours together as student teachers and then went on a crazy journey in Guatemala together. She was my roomie, my partying partner, my yoga sister, the keeper of my wild days. While in Guatemala, Diane pulled me into getting to know myself. She brought laughter, joy, and deep commitment to friendship. While Claire continued that when I returned to NY. I was wounded, lost and she helped me find my way.

I don't know what I have done in my past life to have been blessed with the next group of sisters. My mastermind sisters, held impeccably by Nisha, were everything to me. They saw in me my potent medicine well before I did. They saw me go from being a quite, shy woman to a fierce, badass, priestess. I am forever grateful for your love, loving all of me. Thank you Alex, Allison, Annana, Carolyn, Cassie, Cora, Ginny, Jeannine, Jen, Kristen, Kristina, Laura, Lois, Nisha, Sara + Sara, and Sirena.

Through my quest of healing my sister wounds, I came across amazing sisters. Elle, Maria, Paula, Susan all came at different times like faeries. They brought additional color and new life to my experience as I traveled the world. Thank you for this.

The one thing I know is that I shall always be on a journey of self discovery but what I had not known was how much I loved going down and deep. To my magi sisters and our sacred space holder Jody, thank you. It was with you that I reconnected to my plant allies. I remembered sitting and working the field in a way that I cannot explain. You get me as a cosmic being and it was through this acceptance that I found my other home, my star home. Thank you Alexandra, Annie, Dawn, Effie, Ginny, Jane, Jody, Kelley, Kristi, Kiva, and Trish.

As I begin to truly root into Asheville, NC, I found a group of sisters who taught me that there is magic in honoring the land, home and family. At a time when I was half in and half out of Asheville, my relationship, my business - these women taught me how to stay devoted. Thank you Anne, Cara, Kayla, Liz, Meghan, and Rachel.

Once I became a YES, a full-bodied yes to creating a life in Asheville, I was blessed to have entered a sacred hoop. We play, we laugh, we sit in ceremony, we learn from one another. It was due to your love and potent energy that I was able to access so much more. My Kundalini was activated, my connection to the outer realms became stronger, and I found women who love earth medicine even more than myself! Thank you for being sisters and teachers. Thank you to Andrea, Binah, Caroline, Ellen, Jen, Krystal, Lea, Sarah, and Suzannah.

Australia, my other home, how you have blessed me with such amazing sisters. Through generous, heart-felt connection, I truly began to understand the magic of an invitation. As a Projector, the ask is important and my dearest sisters are always asking me to play. Your depth in understanding sisterhood, personal responsibility, beauty, and fun taught me to fully receive. It started with Julie and then the miracles occurred. Thank you Jade, Johanna, Sammie, Tahlee, and Yvette. Thank you to all the initiates of the Sacred Circle Path. Thank you to the beautiful sisters I have met along the way.  

And finally we come to my Bali sisters. Who knew that EVERYTHING would change when we landed our feet on Momma Bali. I could not have imagined meeting such an intentional community of sisters like yourself when I said yes to going. You have each brought your medicine that has helped me see how I had limited myself and how much I could actually hold. We weaved similar visions together and I am so grateful. Gratitude to Cathy, Esther, Monica, Melissa, Tiffany and all the other sisters I was blessed to have communed with.

I love you deeply. The gratitude I have expressed is only one layer of what I feel. As most of you know writing isn't quite my go to but I hope you feel all that I am feeling through this love note.

With love and gratitude,
