My name is Amanda Emsland and I am on a personal journey of healing that consciously began just over 3 years ago when I decided to start living a life that was true to my inner knowing. It began with ending a relationship with my fiance and was followed by a “Nervous Breakdown”, a diagnosis of Fibromyalgia and Major Depression, quitting my job as a Registered Nurse, giving up my home, selling my belongings and moving to an Ashram where I stayed for nearly 2 years. It was during these 2 years that I began to look at my life and see how I had created something that nearly killed me. I took a good hard look at my self and made significant changes that have lead me to where I am now; a deeply happy, incredibly healthy, vibrant woman with a unique take on life.
I now live my life in a way that is true to my heart and is guided by Love. I have a deep, loving relationship with myself and I am able to see how my skills and natural talents are vital in the world. I see life symbolically and watch for signs that guide me to where those skills are needed most. By accepting and acknowledging that I am Worthy of Love (the literal interpretation of “Amanda”) and that giving of myself to the world is an act of Love, I was able to realize that it is my purpose in life to simply be myself. I do not need to be anything other than what I am or do anything other than what I love. I am enough. In that sense, we are all enough. So by living life in this way I am literally putting “Love In Action” everyday by simply being.
I AM LOVE IN ACTION is a blog that I have created to help inspire myself to continue to do the inner work that has lead to my own personal healing and to move forward into the person I am meant to be on this earth. It is also to prepare me for writing a book. I feel that sharing our personal stories can have a profound impact on the world as it allows us to see our oneness with each other. One person being truthful often makes others feel safe to do the same. My intention is to speak my truth and stand strong in knowing that what I have to say matters. I feel that by demonstrating the Love I have for myself, giving my own Self Love a voice sends a powerful message that others are worthy of the same.
