There are no accidents in this life—and the more aware we become, the
more we’re able discover the patterns that challenge, elevate, and
enlighten us. In “Conversations with the Past,” Dr. Aura Imbarus
delves into many of the profound experiences she’s had over the
years—from emotional breakdowns to spiritually elevated
states—in order to help people discover and understand their own
purpose in life. Through this exploration, we will all be inspired to
examine our own lives and take the necessary steps to enhance our happiness
Emotional, physical, and spiritual experiences are all part of the
intricate, interwoven tapestry of existence. And though it may sometimes
feel like finding our life’s purpose is difficult and elusive, Dr.
Imbarus demonstrates how it can, and will, be revealed to the curious mind
and willing hear.
Looking back at my life, I realize I have as much fun now as I did in my childhood, if not more. My experiences are varied, my joie de vivre doubled, my trust solidified, my happiness increased, and my inner joy skyrocketed. I am an adult who plays and looks at life through the lens of a child. My job, as a high school teacher at one of the best, highly awarded high schools in Southern California, two South Bay colleges, freelance journalist, and founder of See Beyond Magazine, is my life and my calling. As a result of my knowledge and experiences, I can guide others toward fulfilling and attaining their goals. I teach while learning from my students at the same time. We are all students of life, and, as there are no coincidences, we are always at the right place at the right time, for the right reason, whether we realize and accept it or not. My awakening happened one night when I retraced my life in a couple of minutes, from the day I was born to that frozen moment in time, making me realize how fragile we are, but at the same time, how powerful we can be.
