From a young child, I’ve always had a unique connection with creation and special relationship to God. My path was far from easy and I carried a lot of anger and fear in my heart from a lifetime of pain, always begging God, why me? Until ultimately coming to the conclusion that all is meant to be, and even my suffering is a gift,”
She also said that she denounced her religion four years ago and went on a different path of “spiritual discovery” adding that the main path that led her to this point was her decision of coming to Pakistan, “The universe brought me to Pakistan, not only to challenge myself to let go of the last remaining traces of pain and ego, but also to show me the way,”
