My Personal Healing Journey

When I was 6 years old I had an incredible spiritual awakening...I just did not realize it at the time! I just knew I was connected to the Universe and trusted I was being taken care of. I now realize I was manifesting anything and everything I wanted because of the trust I had. Then as I grew older I began to question the why's of this profound faith I had...and so began my journey, not so much of awakening, but being fully in the moment of awareness! When I stray out of the awareness, the Universe has a way of guiding me back...sometimes not so gently or comfortably (I can be stubborn), but effectively. When I was expecting my daughter at the age of 30, I was still in the Canadian Military and a very driven "Type A" personality. After my beautiful daughter came into the world...my body started to break down on so many levels! I had ignored it's/my needs for too long and as I said, the universe spoke to me the only way I would listen...by making me fall hard...I was eventually diagnosed with Myofascial Pain Syndrome/Fibromyalgia/Chronic Fatigue syndrome...and the list goes on! Now up to this point I had been a very active and hard working individual...well all this fell away! I gained so much medication weight and this created more problems and I then  became submerged in a world of pain and disability...my world shrunk in around me! This all coming while I was a brand new Mom! Well I refused to accept the reality of a life of chronic pain and way too much medication...so I decided to change my reality and started my healing journey exploring many wonderful healing modalities. I took early retirement from the Military in 1994 and started to explore - herbal supplements (to replace the medication that was seriously damaging my body)...yoga...massage therapy...chiropractic treatments...Naturopathic treatments... acupuncture...physio-therapy...Structural Intergration (Rolphing) ...Raw Food life style...Reflexology...Reiki - practicing & teaching it (my passion), Sound Therapy (another passion of mine) & the Shamanic Medicine way! Everyone of these modalities helped me go further on my healing path and I have been medication free for more than 12 years. I try to listen to my body more readily and if I forget or become stubborn...the universe and my loving husband give me a little nudge to stay an active participant on my own healing journey!
Now my daughter is in her 20's and I am in my 50's...I am again reclaiming the wisdom I had as a 6 year old...that divine trust in the universe and being guided and taken care of.


Namaste...blessed may you be on your own healing journey!
