I had a very long road and a long journey to get to where I am now. I grew up in a not-so-nice way and I faced a lot of challenges in my life.
When I was a little girl, I would see and hear spirits. I would have conversations with those who passed over. I remember walking to elementary school holding my hands out as if I was holding hands with two people walking next to me although there was no one next to me. I know now, that they were my guides. I was made to believe that it was ‘wrong’ and something was ‘wrong’ with me for doing that. So I stuffed it way down and tried to forget about it. In my teen years, I rebelled. I decided to dabble in the ‘darker’ side of it, mostly because things were happening and since I was told I was something was wrong with me, I played with the Ouija board, played jokes on my friends and I loved to scare people. Then I got to a point where I felt like I had matured enough to not play those “games” anymore. I let it go and shoved it way, way, way, down deep as if it never existed.
I had health problems pretty much my entire life. Mostly migraines, and endometriosis, were the big ones. However, after I had my first child at the age of 25, those migraines turned into hemiplegic migraines. Hemipelegic migraines are really severe migraines where the symptoms mimic the symptoms of a stroke. So when I had one of these migraines, I would present as though I was having a stroke, not a migraine. These migraines were extremely debilitating. I also had 12 surgeries in 14 years.
After this, throughout the years I was diagnosed with one after another, after another of multiple diagnoses. By the time I was 35, I was diagnosed with hemiplegic migraines, Reynolds disease, rheumatoid arthritis, anxiety, panic disorder, childhood PTSD, I had a bulging disc in my neck, I had a herniated disc in the lumbar region of my spine, I had spinal stenosis, the list goes on.
I was told there was no cure and that rheumatoid arthritis and the reynolds were progressive diseases that did not have a cure and it would only get worse all they could do is try to slow the progression and help me to be comfortable. I was ‘permanently disabled’, I was on 37 medications a day at one point, one of these medicines, cause me to gain 90 pounds in less than a year. I was getting back injections, I wore a back brace, and walked with a cane.
I could not even stand up without putting my back brace on. I was in excruciating pain all day every day. It was very rare that I had even had just a few minutes being pain-free.
Then one day, I lost my medical benefits! I lost my medical insurance. Which meant no more doctor visits, no more procedures, no more medicine, and nothing to help with my pain. Just so happened, one day, completely out of the blue, my best friend, whom I haven't spoken to, at this point, in a few years. She calls me one day and I'll never forget her words. She said, “Hey do you still get those migraines?” I said, “Yes”. She said, “I've been working on something new can I come over?” “I told her I wasn't really up to company because I really wasn't. I didn't feel good and I didn't feel like entertaining anyone. She persisted, which is very much her character. So, I finally agreed. She came over the first time and she spent 8 hours sitting at my dining room table talking to me about spirituality and meditation and all the benefits of it because she had recently found it herself. I took it all in and for the first time, in a very long time, I was actually hopeful but I really didn't put it into practice yet.
Then another day she asked me if she can come over because she's been working on a healing modality and she would love to try it on me. I agreed. I was desperate. She came over and told me she was learning Emotion Code. I've never heard of anything like this. But again, I was desperate. So I allowed her to do something called kinesiology, a.k.a., muscle testing.
This was very bizarre, she was pushing down on my arm while asking me questions and then she was running a magnet from my scalp all the way down my back. While she was doing this, I have to admit, remember I had not seen her in a few years prior to her coming over that one day to talk to me about spirituality and meditation. In my mind, all I could think of was, “wow, I haven't talked to her in so long and during that time she went crazy!” This was my mentality at that time. Oh, I was in for a HUGE surprise!
When she finished this session, she told me to stand up and I grabbed my back brace. She said, “No, you won't need that”. I said, “Yes, I do. I can't stand up without putting it on. It's too much pain and my back is too weak”. She said, “I got you” and she held on to me and she told me that if I needed it, I could put the back brace on. I stood up and
for the first time in a long time I felt zero and I mean ZERO pain in my back. Then she told me to touch my toes. I laughed so hard. I said, “I haven't been able to touch my toes in years”. She said, “I got you. I will help you if you need me”. Since I wasn't feeling any pain when I stood up, I trusted her. I bent down and I touched my toes for the first time in more than a decade with NO PAIN! I could not believe what was happening. It felt like a dream. I looked at her and she just had a huge smile on her face. At that moment, I knew that she brought something amazing into our lives that could heal and help people. Then I wanted to know everything she had to say and everything she knew. She explained everything about Emotion Code to me.
Then when she left I fell down the rabbit hole. It began with Emotion Code and meditation. The research I was doing was so mind-blowing, I couldn’t stop! Then it went to tapping and chakras to reiki and sound healing and breathwork! And it's still going!
I started meditating every day. I have to admit in the beginning it was so hard! I couldn't calm my mind down for even two minutes. It took me a good six to ten months before I got meditation down and I started seeing benefits and results. I started to not need the medicine anymore. I didn't need the procedures anymore. I didn't need my handicap placard anymore. I was able to walk long distances, I was able to clean my house, and best of all, I was able to be a mother again!
I studied and I studied and I studied and I became certified in everything that I felt joy in and saw results myself from and I felt could bring healing to people. I knew that if it was helping me, it could help anybody. I wanted to show people that there is a better way.
I wanted people to know and I still want people to know that we don't have to live a life dependent on medications. We can try other ways first. Also, my abilities came back! I was once again able to communicate with those who passed over and I was able to ‘read’ people’s energy so I knew how to help them!
I opened up a crystal shop. I have closed the shop to focus more on my services but I plan to one day sell crystals again!
All of these modalities are so natural and they've been here long before us. Our ancestors use them before medicine came along. In other countries, they still use these modalities because they work!
I am not against doctors and I am not against medication. I feel as though we should try alternative options before we begin to put toxins in our bodies. My problem with medications was, once I took one it created side effects that led to me taking more and more and more it was a nasty vicious cycle. The problem with this cycle was when I would experience side effects from a medication, I was not told that it was a side effect. Instead, I was given a new diagnosis and I needed more medicine.
I can't believe I was living my life that way. I was literally asleep and just going through the motions of life. I was not living. That has all changed now! I live! I live every day! I love life now and I love helping people! My best friend still does her work and she helps people every day. I am now also helping people every day. Let's Tap In To Your Wellness as I did mine!
