Hello and thank you for checking out my website.
I hope this piece of my story can help you get to know me a little and see into why I do the work I do.
I have been focused on my spiritual path for as long as I can remember. As a child, I had a natural connection to a world that I could not see or understand but knew it was there. Many experiences and emotions I had growing up did not make sense to me until I found a group of like minded people at A SpiriTouch Institute (school for Massage Therapy). Human development, understanding of how our connections with others changes the dynamics in our lives and how to use this for healing were the main focus of my studies and changed my world forever.
While I write this, I have spent two decades educating myself in the field of Health, Wellness and personal growth. I’ve learned so much about energy and how it flows between people and the universe and find it fascinating. Celebrating life with people, sharing stories, and supporting others in creating a more balanced life, finding their inner guidance and having an overall feeling of peace and connection within themselves is what fuels me up.
But…. because there is always a but in a good story…. I have challenges just like everyone else does. Working through shifts in my own well being is not as easy as working with someone else on theirs. It’s hard to see our own stuff, our own blockages and a clear way out of them. Looking at our own lives can be hard, it can be ugly and downright exhausting. Even though I am a health and wellness junkie I need mentors and guidance also. I need support to keep my body fueled up to maintain my optimal health just like all of you. Have I always done this? No, I have not. I have ignored my own beliefs, my inner voice and the universal signs screaming at me. What I have learned is that when the big bad wolf knocks on your door and you don’t invite him in, then he is going to blow your house down. And that is what happened to me……..
About 8 weeks after I delivered my third child I had a total system shutdown. It felt like my electrical wires had been rewired incorrectly. I couldn’t breathe without it hurting, I had numbness in my face, sharp pains shooting through my legs and my brain felt like it was disconnecting from the world, myself and anything I ever knew or cared about. I spent several weeks in a state of walking coma. I couldn’t cook a meal, get myself ready or even carry on a conversation with my children. I had no idea how to get out of this. I was trapped in a state of fear and physical pain. After several trips to the ER and multiple doctor visits the diagnosis was, there was nothing wrong with me other than anxiety. While I should have been grateful for this, it left me feeling hopeless with no solution to get back to my normal.
I sat on the steps at my parents house while my mom cared for my newborn baby and I realized I had to get out of this or I would end up loosing my ability to function physically and mentally. I was really starting to loose control of my mind. I knew at that point I needed to do this for myself, nobody had more control than I did. I had a lot of emotional support from family, a very patient husband who gave me time to sort this out and an incredible tool box I had built up over the years with all the classes I took and mentors I had in my life, I just didn’t know how to look within. I called one of my mentors and she told me “you just need to remember your connection to all”. After I got off the phone and sat there for awhile, I don’t know if it was an answered prayer or my inner voice or what occurred in that moment but it was a clear sent answer for me to run, to run as fast as I could. That is exactly what I did. It was what I needed to bring myself back to remembering who I was and that this experience I was having was just an experience, and could be shifted. From there on out, I knew I needed physical movement to kick this crippling barrier that had formed. I began each day with physical movement and calming essential oils and day by day life got easier. From there I sorted through my toolbox and found what worked for me to build a daily regimen which keeps me remembering who I am and supports me in living a healthy life physically, mentally and spiritually.
Tools (which I call your fuel for life) are so important for living a life in balance. First you need to find your fuel, learn how to use it and have it readily available at all times in your toolbox for when life gets tough and you need a little push to get back to you. As long as we keep our eyes open and our hearts wide we can allow these tools into our lives to shift our perception and create balance for ourselves.
Now that I have rebuilt my house, I am ready to invite others in and support them in recognizing when something is knocking on their door.
My mission is to support others with healing work to inspire them to build a life in wellness.
