A glimpse into the past.

If you could see me ten years ago, you wouldn’t recognize me.  I was depressed, in a marriage that I desperately wanted out of, and I felt like I didn’t have any real connections with anyone.  The next three years of my life were a blur of bad decisions and events that broke me down to a point that I thought I would never be able to recover.

My life was a mess.  I desperately wanted it to change.  I needed to heal on so many levels.  The levees that I had built up to hold in all my emotions and feelings were so close to overflowing.  Anyone who lives close to a river knows that a flood brings with it massive destruction.  After the flood, however, new life always springs up.  That is exactly what happened to me.  My levees broke, and I was reborn a happier, more alive person.

I think anyone who has been through a very traumatic experience and comes out better on the other side tends to have a desire to help other people do the same.  I went into Massage Therapy because I wanted a holistic way to help people feel better.  Being that close to people all the time helped me get an idea of what energy felt like.  I knew years ago that I wanted to be able to help people heal on deeper levels.  At that time, I didn’t know how or what else to do so I just kept flooding people with as much light and love as I could give.  Eventually, I started to burn out and I had no idea why or how to fix it.

This past year has brought with it some very deep healing and renewed my desire to help others do the same.  Early last year, I started training in High Vibration Energy Healing and learned to help people heal in a way that was a little healthier for myself too.  The attunements that came with my training have helped me transform my life.  Those emotional floods that used to hit me out of nowhere are suddenly a little easier to handle (most of the time!) and I recover and heal so much faster than I used to.  If you ever have the chance to experience this type of healing, please take it.  You will be amazed at the changes it can bring into your life.

There are times when I look back at my life and think that I should’ve done something differently.  Now I know that I experienced the things I did so that I would have a deeper understanding of suffering and the strength to get through tough situations.  I am grateful for this life that I am living.  I am grateful for the people who surround me with love and kindness.  Most of all, I’m grateful that I have the ability to do the same for them.
