I was living the American dream with a husband, two children, a home, loving family and friends. Why was I constantly getting sick? Why was I so unhappy? I was ignoring the signals my body was sending me. What I didn’t realize then was how my emotional health was affecting my physical health. I learned how to stuff my feelings and not say what was truly on my mind. This created so much dis-ease within my body. During the last several years of my marriage I began to explore alternative methods for healing. I spent thousands of dollars on supplements, doctor visits, and all types of alternative healers. I was desperate. I would make some progress for a short while and then regress. I was addressing the physical but not the emotional. Finally, after losing nearly 30 pounds without even trying, I looked in the mirror and was startled to see the shell of a woman looking back at me. I knew something had to change. I was giving away my personal power, not only in my marriage, but with my health care providers. I was looking for someone to “fix me” without realizing at the time what I needed was to go within and challenge my belief systems.
As my journey continued I was introduced to one of many energy healers and after a session of Hypnosis in 2012 I was finally able to face my fears. It was then that I knew I had to end my 30 year marriage. It was the toughest decision I ever had to make but also the right one for me. In 2015 I was diagnosed with Lyme disease that went undiagnosed for many years. This time, I not only treated the physical symptoms but the emotional issues as well. I began a journey of self-discovery and True Inner Reflection. Ultimately, the Lyme disease has led me on a path to help others and to greater self-awareness, which is why it has truly been a gift. So as I continue on my road of health and wholeness I have gratitude in my heart for all of the wonderful healers I was guided to. There is a famous quote that says “when the student is ready, the teacher will appear.” I’ve learned many valuable lessons along the way but the most important one is that “true healing comes from within.”
I am committed to helping others on their own path of self-discovery to overcome obstacles that are keeping them from living their best life. When you focus on True Inner Reflection you create balance in your Mind, Body & Spirit.
