I rarely talk about my personal life however, many have asked how and why I went into holistic wellness, so here is a quick overview as to how I ended up where I am today!
I found myself at my wits end. I had left a domestic violent relationship of 6 years. I was now left to raise my child alone with no support and I was suffering with crippling post-natal depression along with injuries sustained during child birth to the point where I could not walk without pain accompanying it or I had to walk with crutches and push a push chair. (Not easy for me as I find multitasking a tad challenging!). It was even more frustrating when none of the medical professionals who I sought help from could understand why I could not heal, yet were happy to prescribe medication to abolish the pain (which did not work anyway). Ultimately I was told I may never be pain free again and the injuries may be with me for life. No one, including myself, saw that the physical pain I was experiencing was hugely influenced by the emotional pain that resided within me and my body just could not carry that burden anymore.
One of the main reasons I found multitasking challenging was because I sustained a head injury from my former partner which left me with mild dyslexia and memory problems. I had to learn how to learn again all whilst going through the arduous family and criminal Justice system. Not the best of times eh? Especially when my second relationship ended in tatters and I found myself internally broken again.
It was truly at the point of my second relationship ending that I felt enough was enough. I was sick of constantly being sick. Tired of being always tired and was fed up with the people and situations I had attracted in. For me, it was time to be accountable for some of my experiences and look into why I had opened myself up for such horrible experiences and people! I made a decision to no longer be a magnet for negativity and chose to create happiness in my life one way or another.
I decided to delve into energy and how it worked. I researched the teachings of people such as Louise L Hay, Dr Wayne Dyer and Bob Proctor to name a few. I wondered to myself, how did these people manage to get themselves out of debt? Homelessness? Even cancer? Energy. It always boiled down to the positive use of energy and the mind that facilitated it. I read The Secret, I saw the movie, and I read the books that followed. I began to learn of another dimension of living that I was unaware of. I say unaware but I was always sensitive to unknown energies, I just was not open or awake to it due to all of the terrible things that had happened.
One of the biggest things for me to discover was my inner pain and lack of love for myself. Wow, what a painful journey that was. Not many people like to feel vulnerable. I used to see it as a weakness. Now I see it as beautiful and raw. The real core of me. Reiki had come into my life many years prior and I had dismissed it. It was at this point in my life when I was finding out more about myself and learning so much that it had reappeared and this time I grasped it, with initially hesitant hands but I grasped. We never grow when we stay in the box we place ourselves in. Discomfort will often allow growth. This is what I truly wanted. I wanted better in my life.
I started on my level 1 and never looked back. Reiki flowed into my life. I became Reiki. Accessing this beautiful energy equipped me with the resources I needed to remove negative people and situations in my life. For the first time in years I was no longer experiencing physical pain. For the first time in many years I felt what real love was. The love for myself. It has been a journey that energy therapy has supported me with wholly. I found myself free of 13 years of domestic abuse from my previous partner, new people and situations who work for my higher good come onto my path, I can honestly say my stress levels have reduced significantly as I set the intention to go with the flow and know that what is happening is happening for my higher good. I have also learnt through experience of how powerful my thoughts are and to be mindful of them so not to cause dis-ease. My world has transformed in so many ways and I am now living. Not just being. I know energy healing is not for everyone but I trust in energy healing. I trust in myself. I am not ‘perfect’ but I have learnt about the importance of me and that I simply deserve the best. I have seen amazing miracles occur for myself and others who I have come into contact with, up to today I am still astounded by how energy therapy has changed so many lives. This is why I believe to my core that we all deserve the best quality of life and this is why I do what I do. Because I believed in me and I believe in the power of you.
