How did I become a powerful agent of change?
Leading up to my awakening were many events beginning when I was a teenager. I had struggled with chronic back pain. I was diagnosed with scoliosis, and the doctors advised that this was a condition that would only continue to progress as I aged. There would be no cure, nor anything I could do for pain relief. This was tough news to hear as a teenager, but my intuition told me to keep looking for relief.
Around the age of seventeen I ran across a book my mother had left in the living room on yoga. I was inspired to read it, and decided to try yoga out. Slowly but surely, as my yoga practice grew I found relief from the back pain. My body was strengthened in a new way which impacted me deeply. I was tuning into my own inner wisdom and letting it guide me into finding methods to reduce my pain.
Then I left for college, and found out I could take yoga as an elective. So I developed a regular practice and relationship with my yoga teacher. She shared her story with me about battling arthritis and using yoga to help her gain back her flexibility. I felt validated by her story. She guided me in proper breathing techniques and advanced posturing. After a while I began to notice a shift in my entire being. I felt much less pain; lighter in my body, and more connected to my spirit as well.
Doing this daily self work allowed me to develop a deeper relationship with my inner wisdom, connect more to nature and know my true self. It also helped me to deal with emotional stress much better. I was gaining a different perspective on life that would become my eternal source of personal power! At that time, “holistic” wasn’t even a buzz word, but I was intuitively following holistic practices for self healing because it felt right to me, I was following my inner wisdom!
When I went through my first pregnancy around age 29, my back pain worsened. By the time I had the baby, the pain in my hip was so bad that I started to limp. I went back to an Orthopedic again and this one told me the same thing the first one had told me a dozen years prior. That due to the scoliosis there wasn’t anything they could do. I said “what about yoga?” She literally laughed at me! I left the doctors office disappointed and very angry!! That is when I decided that I was not going to waste my time listening to dispassionate doctors who don't have a clue! I begin in that moment to take my own intuition seriously!
I decided to find a place to work out and lose the baby fat. I thought that if I strengthened my body and got back into the yoga that I may be able to help myself. I met a woman at the workout center that suggested I look into seeing a Chiropractor. I had never heard of a Chiropractor before, and was surprised that my doctors never suggested this to me. When I began working with the Chiropractor, he told me that he could fix the curvature since it was not a deformity but a muscular issue. That is when I had my second realization that there were two paths to health; a natural medicine path and then there was the other way of drugs and surgery which is practiced by almost all western doctors. That was a defining moment for me! I choose natural medicine for life.!
Over the months to follow while I was having my spine manually untwisted by the Chiropractic adjustments, I experienced lots of heat moving up my spine as the muscles in my upper back were beginning to open up! This caused a lot of inflammation and pain. However, I was not afraid because I believed in the natural healing process. I knew that my spirit was guiding me because of the series of synchronicities that had lead me to begin this whole process in the first place.
So to address the muscle pain, I choose another natural healing modality, massage therapy! I added weekly massage into my treatment plan. Then as I was going through all of this, the need for me to heal on an emotional level came to the forefront. I found out that emotional energy was trapped in the muscle tissue since childhood when I had experienced any kind of trauma. The releasing of physically contracted tissue was also releasing trapped emotional energy. So what do you think I did? Of course, I sought out therapeutic counseling! This was when I began to understand the concept of body/ mind connection. I realized how powerfully our mind and emotions affect the condition of our body.
I continued this trifecta of therapies for about three years. Then I no longer needed emotional therapy but I continued to receive massage a few times a year and Chiropractic adjustments once a month for about twelve more years. Then I had no back pain and became a massage therapist myself for 5 years. I was thrilled to be help others heal their pain issues with massage therapy and many forms of energy medicine.
I continued to expand my horizons intuitively being lead from one thing to the next. For over 20 years I have witnessed many powerful transformations in my clients as we explored mind/body healing techniques together. I felt very fortunate to have seen first hand how we can heal ourselves to a great extent with out drugs and surgery and at the same time saddened about how little attention is paid to natural healing methods in our society. I always guide people to tune into their pain and develop their own intuition. If I did not do that myself I would have been in pain all the time. I have no back pain and I am still strong 40 years after first being told I would have pain and dysfunction by my early 50's.
I am appalled at how health care is handled in our society. I see people give away their personal power in making decisions about their health all the time. The relationships between doctors and patients are rarely collaborative. We have a “go ask your doctor” mentality for everything, which takes away our personal sovereignty.
I healed my entire being and learned how to take care of my self intuitively. Then I started teaching other women who were in pain how they can do the same: I watched their lives become more joyful, balanced and fulfilled too! I have since made a commitment to dedicate the rest of my professional life to helping women who are suffering discover how to connect with their own Inner Sage, experience deep healing and access the keys to their true self.
