Holistic Health Journey
K-4 Educational Services, Wellness
Five years ago my life was very different. One reason was I lived with clutter in my life, on autopilot and in constant busyness, living my life without really paying attention to my deepest desires and truths. I rarely focused on listening to my heart, staying true to my core, or pause to assess how I was investing my time, money and thoughts. Most of my life I just did what I thought I was supposed to do, how I was taught, how I was raised, beliefs that were ingrained passed down from family generations & society.
I believed stories I told myself. My external world appeared and seemed "perfect", although very busy and full of stuff! I had a great job, a beautiful home/community, an incredible husband, kids, dogs, amazing and supportive family and friends. I felt unbelievable stress, I even rated my stress level a 10! Old belief systems kept me stuck!
I knew there was something missing as I could feel an inner longing, knowing that there was more. How could I "have it all" and still feel this sense of stress and general unhappiness. I believed it would always be this way.
Feelings of guilt, overwhelm and self doubt would keep me up at night. Anxious feelings would creep up on me during work, in my relationships with friends and family and even at my kids' sports events. I’d feel the knots, tightness and stress in my stomach, neck and heart. I’d ruminate for days over a conversation or a situation that I felt uneasy about...I didn’t know what to do about it, often times I’d avoid and prayed it would just go away!
I was a perfectionist....and always felt like I had to do more, be more, do things a certain way, and say yes to things that really didn't resonate with me. I was on a hamster wheel constantly going and not feeling the full essence of true happiness or seeing the results I envisioned. I was high achieving, goal driven and I worked hard all the time. I gave 125% to being a good mom, wife, employee, daughter and I didn’t feel the FULL sense of joy that I knew I so deserved. And I felt depleted. Burned Out!
My heart centered mindfulness journey and yoga practice was the basis for the expansion in my life. I allowed myself to let go and be open to greater expansion and new possibilities. One major milestone for me was clearing all the physical clutter in my life and making space for meaningful things in my life! Another milestone was taking a break from my 8-4, Monday-Friday teaching job. This has allowed me to receive unlimited gifts, creativity and inspiration.
My dedicated practice and lifestyle assisted me in becoming unstuck in my old emotional belief patterns and energy systems. It has allowed me to connect with me so that I could re-gain true health, wealth, wellness and freedom. This has included a true decluttering process (both internally and externally) and upgrade of my life; lifestyle, career, health, relationships, finances.
I love the beautiful friends and mentors that have shown up in my life, the shifts in perspective that have occurred, my new sense of energy, my focused thinking, my clutter free home, my sleep improvements, pain relief, skin-clearing and a reduction of my anxiety!! I love experiencing time freedom (working from home) and beautiful relationships with my husband of 20 years, my two teenagers, puppy and family-friends!
It is a HUGE contribution for me to share my practice with you. Follow my journey and dream! Work with me today!
