I Know at times we feel disconnected from ourselves, we feel stuck, uneasy, unbalance, overwelmed, unable to rest/sleep, burned out seeing the same things happening time and time again, broken, and feeling out of alignment with your mind, body & spirit. OR feeling the pressure of having to achieve, perform or stuck in unhealthy situations/relationships that are not serving our highest good. I understand and know what that feels like to be out of touch with my body and ignore its warning signs for years until it shows up physically. Feeling exhausted, depleted and out of harmony, wondering if this is how my life will forever be.
I know, because belive it or not, that was once me....
Just 7 years ago, I was a high level corporate sales and business development executive in the beauty industry, traveling globally fulfilling someone else's vision. My schedule had me traveling 15-20 days out of the month, taking me away from my kids, working long hours, nights and weekends to prove to myself, the world and my boss that I was deserving of recognition, attention, position and salary. From the outside it seemed I had it all, but on the inside I was loosing myself, felt disconnected, lost and unfulfilled. I never questioned my role or my standing in life, because I thought I was fulfilling my passion. But, I never stopped to ask myself, is this your life's purpose and soul's desire.
I was completely our of touch with my body, ignoring the signs that lead to my dis-ease in suffering aches and pains in my body, resetless sleep, headaches, anemia, and being diagnosed with multiple uterine fibroids and cervical cancer. I was divorces and found myself in relationships that were neither healthy nor nourishing. My free-spirited, adventurous and fun-loving self was stifalled by my high-achieving, self-criticism and not-feeling-good-enough self.
