Rewriting the Story
"You've got Crohn's. You'll have this disease for the rest of your life."
Those were the words I heard when I was eleven years old. Diagnosed with Crohn's disease - a mysterious autoimmune disorder that causes severe digestive issues, I recall that my thought wasn't fear, but a question:
"Uh, What is an intestine?" My body was foreign to me.
What followed was years of bathroom runs, abdominal pain, rolls of toilet paper (I know the BEST brands, btw) and a variety of "shit-storms," treated with steroids, anti-diarrheal pills, and a litany of prescriptions.
Nothing was working.
I would go to sleep at night, praying to God for a miracle.
I was finally given a heavy immuno-suppressive medication that caused my disease to go into remission. Phew! Relieved, I went about my life as any "normal" gal would. But in the back of my mind, I knew I wasn't "normal." I still feared the reoccurrence of the disease.
In 2010, my father died. It cracked my world wide open.
They say that the adventure doesn't begin until things fall apart.
So apart I fell. Spiritually, mentally, emotionally, and physically. My symptoms returned with a vengeance.
That flare would last five years and take me around the world, searching for answers.
I immersed myself in natural healing remedies and processes. I would try a 30-day juice fast, numerous special diets, to the point where I feared anything I ate. I would hurl myself into healing and personal development trainings, trying to figure out what my gosh darn purpose was.
Why was my body doing this? Why wasn't I healing? What was my purpose here on earth? What in the heck is WRONG with me?
But the question wasn't really about why or what...it was about who.
Who am I?
I couldn't run from myself any longer. It was time to step into my true purpose, to be who I really was and to do what truly called to me in life.
So I started breaking the rules.
I started to do my own thing.
And then, when I decided this, when I decided to BE ME...
...my symptoms gradually disappeared.
The more I accepted myself, the more my body healed. The more I chose to be myself, the more I helped others.
The more I helped others heal, the more I healed.
The disease that was supposed to last a life-time gave me a life-time of purpose.
I found out later that this phenomenon is called "shaman sickness" and it was a part of my hero's journey.
The miracle didn't happen overnight for me like some of the spontaneous healing accounts I have read. It was truly a journey. But one night I did realize it was over.
I was healed. Because I am ALWAYS healing.
And so are you.
To heal is to recognize that we are already whole. When you know this, not just in your mind, but in your heart, your gut, your Soul, then you experience the healing that has been there all along.
This is my mission...to be a space for you to be yourself and enjoy the ride.
Now I go to sleep thanking God for the miracle that is Life.
When you align with your true purpose, you Heal.
My healing work is based on a foundation of three core beliefs. These form the paradigm that I teach and heal from, and contribute to the space necessary for radical miracles.
1. You are God.
As in you are the Creator of your own experience. You are always connected to Source. When you realize this, you also realize miracles.
2. You are your own Healer.
You heal when you live your purpose. When you heal yourself, you heal the world. What calls your Soul Heals You.
3. The World needs the Real You.
Being You is the most valuable gift you can give to the world and the highest form of making a difference.
In my down-time...
I love to travel...Inside and Out! You can find me bumping around places like Chaing Rai Thailand, Mysore India, Moab Utah, and my own backyard.
I love hiking, cooking, baking, reading voraciously (I read a book a week!), journaling, dancing, writing silly poems, and practicing yoga and hand-standing whenever I get the chance!
And I love spending time with my loved ones...like my partner, Jonathan :)
