My curiosity is something that has always led the way for me. My healing journey started when I found a chiropractor that does NET work, which is a form of muscle testing. Having him talk with my subconscious mind and those emotions going back to childhood had me so intrigued. I found my subconscious mind and body had a lot of emotions for me to tend too.
I have struggled with a deep mother wound, self love & body issues, not feeling good enough, control issues from not feeling safe, anger from not wanting to be vulnerable, lack of boundaries, people pleasing, & emotional eating. I had a lot of healing to work through. I spoke very poorly to myself without realizing it. When I was anxious I was putting myself into a fight or flight daily. I needed to tend to these emotions and my body was so ready. My mind though was afraid but when I got past the fear with breath work my transformation was so beautiful. Through reiki my journey went the fastest. I was uncovering parts of me I had hidden away! My transformation was more about meeting more of myself and loving the parts I shamed.
Doing shadow work, mirror work and finding so much self love and acceptance of myself I came back home to myself. I am such an emotional person and when I saw my emotions as gifts and not a curse I was able to lean into them and not abandon myself. It’s been such a mind blowing and beautiful journey coming back home to myself.
