The purpose of sharing my story is to ignite hopefulness, share strength and courage and raise awareness. Everything in our life happens for reasons we may never fully understand. As a result of my life experiences I have formed tangible wellness tools designed for you and I to personally work with. I came to learn that wellness starts from within.
For 38 years I lived every day with a mental diagnosis of severe anxiety and depression. Daily I experienced 4-6 panic/anxiety attacks. I was paralyzed in fear. Could not leave my home, go shopping, socialize, or work. In my mind I feared that I would go crazy and be placed in a mental institution. I was told I "had" the following:
- Social Phobia
- Situational Phobia
- Irrational Fears
- Panic Attacks
I enlisted the help of a psychiatrist as I felt if anyone knew how to prevent me from going crazy it would be that medical professional.
One day I heard 9 words that changed my life in the blink of an eye. The words were, “Crazy people do not know they are going crazy.” Those words resonated with me. Unbeknownst to me, it was in that moment my personal healing began.
I returned to the psychiatrist excited to share that I could not possibly be going crazy that I have an “awareness.” The dear doctor leaned forward and looked in my eyes and said to me, “There isn’t anything wrong with you. You have a thought disorder” and we took it from there. That statement designed the work I now do in my holistic practice. One of my platforms is The Power in Words we Think and Speak.
I heard about Reiki while on my “wellness tour” and signed up for the training's. Reiki therapy was the catalyst that jump started my path to wellness, peace, clarity and other healing modalities I offer and work with.
