About Radiant You


Eva M. Stephens –
Spiritual Healing Guide

Growing up both sensitive and empathic was extremely challenging.  Because I could so deeply sense what others were feeling (and even thinking!), my life became about trying to make others happy.  If others were happy, then I would be happy, right?

Unfortunately, as I grew into adulthood, my extreme people pleasing continued.  But now, I had a husband, five children, extended family, and even perfect strangers to appease!  It was an exhausting way to live, and manifested in my life through weight gain and repeated bouts of depression.

Life continually tried to present me with opportunities to see that this way of being was not working for me, but it wasn’t until a very dark night of the soul that I actually began to see the light.  You see, that’s the thing about life.  The wake up calls get bigger and bigger until you finally get the message!

During my dark night of the soul, I realized a couple things:  one, I wasn’t responsible for other people’s happiness, and two, no matter how hard I tried, there were just some individuals I was never going to be able to satisfy.  I also sadly recognized, that over the years, I had completely lost myself.

One night during this most challenging time in my life, I was sobbing uncontrollably and couldn’t find a way to calm myself down.  Suddenly I felt surrounded by an overwhelmingly peaceful presence.  I immediately became calm, stopped crying, and fell asleep.  In the morning, my husband asked “what happened last night?,” but I couldn’t put my experience into words.  It was a feeling of love that was indescribable.  A love that made me believe there was something bigger at work in my life.  A love that would change how I looked at my life from that moment forward.

And that’s when my journey began!

Today, I am proud to call myself a lifelong learner, and continue to seek strategies to help empower myself to live my best life.  Along the way, I have met many wonderful teachers, mentors, and friends, and it is my great joy to share with others what has been gifted to me.  Yes, I am still a work in progress, but I have been blessed to witness in myself, and others, the wonder that occurs when we remember the innate truth of who we are, and begin to shine our lights brightly in the world.

 

“If you knew who walked beside you at all times, on the path that you have chosen, you could never experience fear or doubt again.”
