I've always been a natural Way Shower, but I couldn't OWN my gifts until 2023 when I felt I had finally fully evolved beyond my past conditioning and wounding and was truly 'walking my talk'.
Before then I felt out of integrity as a leader as I still struggled with anxiety, felt ungrounded and disconnected from my body, and was stuck in ‘masculine energy’ and numbing out patterns.
I’d experienced childhood sexual abuse, chronic bullying, and domestic violence that led to co-dependent relationship patterns and addictions. And while I had already healed enough to create peace in all my relationships, my heart was still not fully open as I didn’t feel safe to be seen and shine my light bright everywhere I went.
I never gave up on myself though as I had made a promise when my darling first husband, Greg, who died at the age of 42, that I would become the confident woman I had not been able to be while he was alive (even though I didn’t know HOW I was going to do that).
Unfortunately, my self-destructive patterns ran very deep, and I experienced 3 burnout periods, the last one taking me to rock bottom in 2020 (you can read more in my book chapter here)
Finally, I had to humbly face all the ways I wasn’t in my power, such as not taking care of myself, over-giving to be liked, and pushing myself too hard to achieve. I was teaching personal development to other women yet felt like a fake.
So, I chose to surrender my ego and look deep within to face, embrace, and transcend my darkest shadows, deepest fears, and self-sabotaging victim patterns.
From there I healed my heart and reset my nervous system back to ‘normal’, which has allowed me to live joyfully in flow, be grounded and able to fulfil my purpose of helping brave women like you to take back control of their lives and live fully and joyfully.
