The ROOT of HEALING
This is the time to dig deep, lean in and totally embrace who you are. What I mean by that is, lean into everything that is presenting itself in your life today. Yes, we are in the storm, a pandemic and everything is heightened due to fear of COVID-19. The Stress and Anxiety is at an all time high. Fear is in the air.
It is times like this, that we can once and for all free ourselves from the demons that have been haunting us for, a long time or maybe even a lifetime. I was turned inside out in 2017 after being diagnosed with breast cancer. I was in disbelief at first, I screamed and cried, I was angry and afraid. As I stayed present to all of this, (with the love and support of family, friends, colleagues and my entire team of warriors) I realized that I can connect with the deepest part of me, heal and apply all of the tools and practices I knew, to HEAL.
I am forever GRATEFUL to each of you that LOVED me through it. Thank You...
I went inside. I was able to take the time, (because I was laid off the following week from a Health Coaching position due to downsizing) , which at that time seemed like it was the worst possible time for me to lose my job. I thought about what we would lose, financially. What I discovered, was there was so much more to this for me, and it was in that space, that I chose to take the path of HEALING. HEALING, not only the trauma of a diagnosis, but HEALING the trauma that I had locked away in my body. It was a long journey. It was a hard journey, it was a lesson in GRACE. I now live life with GRACE and GRATITUDE .
I know now that I was given a second chance at life. A chance to HEAL and get to the core of who I am. Fear will take you down if you let it. I had to fight hard, strong and every day. I was isolated, weak and completely alone with myself and what I call GOD. I made two deals. They were at two different times. My deal was "I AM NOT READY TO DIE, I HAVE TOO MUCH LIFE TO LIVE." I want to grow old, see my son live a full life, and see his children, my grandchildren. I made a promise to myself and to GOD. I promised to never waste another minute, never wait for anything, share myself authentically and always, always, BRING LIGHT TO THE WORLD! My mantra from this is, LIFE IS NOW!!
This is one of those times for all of us. Find your LIGHT, LOVE MORE and GROW from this. Yeah, its a challenge. It isn't easy, but it is a time of AWAKENING. We humans AWAKEN outside of our comfort zones. Now is the time to expand and grow. Now is the time to become the Amazing person you were gifted to be in this life. RISE UP or not!!!
