J. Karen Frank, Founder, A Crystalline Light Foundation
Personally: I grew up in Grosse Pointe, Michigan. I came to Florida 25 years ago by way of 12 years in New Jersey. My father was an entrepreneur and builder. Almost from the time I could walk I would travel with him to his building sites. We would walk them to make sure all the work was being done properly and sometimes I helped to make it so. I guess you might say building is in my blood.
I have many years of experience both professionally and spiritually. I have worn many hats from wife, mother and business woman to a passionate seeker on a personal journey that has lead me through many spiritual disciplines.
For the last 17 years I have been on a journey of self-discovery and that of the Divine within which has taken me beyond Belief and Faith to a place of Knowing. On this journey I have found we all have abilities far beyond our comprehension. To help people know this I created a ministry dedicated to the healing and growth of the Human Spirit. Now, I have been asked to put my business woman’s hat back on and to expand this ministry to include a commitment to change by helping to create a model for communities where we can all learn to live in harmony with each other and our "Mother" earth. I am a woman of purpose and conviction. My greatest joy is when I have the opportunity to be of service to the world. I am dedicated and determined to see these community projects come to fruition.
Spiritually: I have two favorite quotes. One is how I strive to live and encourage others to live, the other describes what I feel has happened to me and is happening more and more to others now:
"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond all measure. It is our light, not our darkness that frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn't serve the world. There's nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others." Marianne Williamson
"When you are inspired by some great purpose. Some extraordinary project. All your thoughts break their bonds; your mind transcends limitations, your consciousness expands in every direction and you find yourself in a new, great and wonderful world. Dormant forces, faculties and talents become alive, and you discover yourself to be a greater person by far than you ever dreamed yourself to be." Patanjali
