As we are discovering, the path to the spiritual realm comes in many shapes and sizes through life experiences. Some individuals are born with it and some discover it through their life‘s journey. Such as the case with Erin McDermott having worked in a genetics lab and opening herself up to new Awareness, she discovered that in the downtime between certain specific testing at the lab, that when she practiced mindfulness, insights would reveal themselves. A big discovery that occurred to her was that her mind ran with thoughts like a New York Stock Exchange ticker tape that was ceaseless. Having a partner to bounce ideas off of, she threw this one out there, to see if he had experiences with his thoughts running rampantly like hers, only to discover that he didn’t. An upsetting truth that actually made her feel like he may be lying since in her reality, as it became obviously apparent through this awareness, was very different from his. These mindfulness practices that she was coming to terms with will take her to the next level of not only developing a deeper partnership with her now husband, but also to be in the flow of life so that things will happen with much more grace and ease.
Her path to becoming a sound healer was a bit slower in coming but it started from a desire to create beautiful things through music such as she had experience with a harp. After finally being really willing to commit and invest in some crystal balls herself, in Mount Shasta, did she dive into the next level of her now career. Erin is a sound healer, utilizing vibration to help individuals enter into states that either creates clarity, journey or even an ultimate purpose/perspective, helping individuals to dive further into their own spiritual journey. She is able to use her abilities solo or in collaboration with multiple individuals to create life altering events.
Some of the incredible synchronicity‘s that she was able to dive into for us was the very apropos realization that her awakening path started almost 15 years to the day of the interview. Also that when her life in California was ready to transition, all the doors were open for her and her husband to move to Sedona, to start the next leg of their journey finding community and work with profound ease. Collaborations are now becoming more and more common, creating bigger opportunities for awareness and sound healing in her life such as being featured in Travel and Leisure magazine.
Some of the big takeaways from the podcast are to trust the journey, become more aware of reactionary responses within self and being mindful of them, instead of defaulting to assuming what is actually happening. This practice of reflection vs reaction, will save so many people from the judgment, shame and guilt we feel upon finding out the actual truth/reality, which then really allows us to enter into the flow of life, so that we can be more confident on our paths.
