20+ years Of life's circumstances
As I continue to learn from circumstances that I must go through, the ones I am sharing with you are why I chose to dig deeper, immersed myself in research, and ultimately led me to study more about the mind, body, heart and soul.
As a young girl, I was raised in a family that had many challenges. Because of not learning functional methods to deal with varying circumstances, there were major disappointments within the walls of my home. Having a few siblings didn’t make it easier, but instead, we all went through similar paths. Due to the dysfunction, there resulted various triggers, many causing PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder). Through the course of growing up, the symptoms of suppressing feelings and not seeking help caused anxiety, panic, hypochondria (fear of illness), and depression to manifest in my life. Many might not believe, but the power of differing emotions, not dealt with, can cause so much harm to the overall being.
I looked for comfort in friends, other family members, and boyfriends, but nothing would suffice. I started dealing with every situation in the mode of fight or flight, and chronic stress became the norm. Without realizing, I was slowly killing myself. I would visit the emergency room, over and over again, and they would tell me it was in my head. I went through an inexplicable amount of mental, physical and emotional symptoms. It felt like the world was literally caving in on me. As things progressed in life, having to work, go to school, make something of myself, I found it harder and harder to cope. There were a few times suicide crossed my mind, but I just couldn’t bring myself to contemplate doing it and the impact it would have on those I knew. Not only was I hurting on the outside, but I was dying on the inside.
When I came to know the Lord, there was finally some hope to hold on to. I had experienced a death scare, where my body went into panic mode and almost shut down. Shortly after, I came to the knowledge of how detrimental stress could be. It was damaging my digestive system, and I was fighting through mental and physical ailments just to live through. A few years after this circumstance, I came to know who Jesus is. That was the beginning of learning Truth from lies. I was fortunate to come in contact with some wonderful people that brought awareness on the importance of dealing with suppressed emotions and regaining control of my life. In the years to come, there were several other trials: including two more death scares. Basically, with over 20 years of going through various difficult circumstances, over 12 of those years of walking with the Lord, and over 15 years of learning all about the mind, body, heart and soul, I have come to utilize varying healing methods to identify, process and overcome life’s circumstances.
I am not claiming I have everything figured out, but I have been honored to help many people and continue to desire to bring true hope back into lives of women of all ages. My intention is to continue learning and helping others by imparting many years of "tried and tested" knowledge that will change their lives for good. This is just a small glimpse of what has given me a great vision and purpose to be a vessel of restoring hope through overall healing of each and every woman.
