I did not live in my body.
My normal state of being was a headache centering around my left eye, nausea, a neck which ached so much it hurt to hold up my own head, motion sickness, and vomiting. So, I would mentally leave my body and function without connecting within to the day-to-day ongoing pain. I would push through each day, simply to start over again the next.
When my children were young, I realized if I could not care for myself, how could I care well for them? What type of example was I setting?
This was the start of my holistic health journey and discovery of the power of choice, becoming aware and claiming my home – my body.
I started with opening my awareness of current patterns and shifting my products and habits. First by reading food labels, understanding real food, finding local food sources; second by connecting with my body with Tai Chi, breathwork, meditation, and yoga; as well as becoming aware of underlying emotions and habit patterns; and even tuning in to my body’s natural cycles and their connection with the rhythms of nature.
