From my late teens I have been dedicated to healing old patterns of behaviour and emotional blockages which prevented me from becoming the highest version of myself possible.
WHERE DID MY JOURNEY BEGIN?
I began my journey as the eldest daughter of 2 alcoholic parents. My father, not long returned from the Vietnam war and suffering Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, drank to suppress his feelings and emotions. My mother was extremely angry with his emotional distance and often took that anger out on my two brothers and myself, both physically and emotionally. I received absolutely no love or physical attention and learnt to become ultra self reliant.
My eldest brother harbouring his own emotional wounds, projected his rage onto me. I was bullied by him and lived in fear of him my entire childhood. Our family life was, as you can imagine, quite chaotic. The result of the continual stress that I lived with was that I learnt to suppress my emotions and not ‘feel’ , and took this way of being into my adult life. I learnt to control my life to feel safe and to disconnect from my body and my feelings. I took on the belief that my brother’s behaviour was my fault and I learnt to be overly responsible for everything and everyone.
STRESS MANIFESTS IN THE BODY
By the age of 25 this bodily stress had manifested in an autoimmune disease and Chronic Fatigue. I no longer had the energy or life force to continue life activities. My immune system was failing and I knew that I had to get help. From 25 years onwards I sought answers, dealt with my emotional scars one by one, and my health began to improve.
WHAT CAN I OFFER YOU?
This started me on the life long journey into ‘higher self’. After 12 years of daily meditation, Qigong and spiritual practices, I have learnt to lift my energy levels to a point where I can assist others along a similar path of recovery. I know what it takes, not from reading it in a book, by living it. Not only do I know what it takes, I know how to get there. I welcome the opportunity to share my inner wisdom with you.
“This is one of my favourite photos of my cats. All everyone really wants deep down is to be loved. This photo for me is the essence of unconditional love. This kind of love for is momentarily touched by many of us in special moments, but I am passionate about learning how to hold onto this type of love for extended periods of time, to maintain it and not let it go, no matter what!”
