The doctors told me I would be in a wheelchair by the time I become 40. Today I write to you at the age of 38 having totally reclaimed my life and health.

Some things they don’t teach you when you are in school is the connection between your mind and body and being able to find answers to your physical and emotional state. Something I would love to see changed in this lifetime. I was 19 years old when a colleague at work handed me a book, You Can Heal Your Life by Louise Hay. Little did I know at the time, this book would open my mind and heart to a whole wealth of knowledge about mind – body connection.

Don’t get me wrong I resisted it at first, but curiosity always piqued my interest.

After birthing 3 children, I decided it was time to get fit, and have something just for me. So I started kickboxing classes, oh how I loved it. Then something really strange happened. I was getting weaker by the day, not stronger as you would expect. I asked my instructor if this is something to worry about, he said it’s probably a good idea to chat to the doctor just to be on the safe side.

10 months prior to that, I was edging towards the end of my 3rd pregnancy and everyday was a challenge, I couldn’t walk far without chronic pain, that would reduce me to tears, I didn’t think anything of it.

With the guidance of my instructor, I saw my GP who started tests… 8 months later I received a diagnosis: Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue. 

OUCH.

I was declining rapidly. Stress was a major factor, and yet everyday I was stressed out. 3 kids and living through domestic abuse, my life and now body weren’t my own anymore.

Fast forward a few years  to 2015 and I left the relationship to find some peace in my life and within 12 months my fibromyalgia symptoms had reduced, flare ups were less invasive and becoming less regular.

It was at this point I started to piece together stress as a trigger for a flare up.

As 2016 unfolded, the physical pain I was navigating became more about the exhaustion, I eventually led into a deep dark hole of burn out. Doctors had referred me for therapy, and after 16 weeks of psychotherapy that didn’t change anything for me, and medication that did not agree with me, I returned to my GP for help. Watching my 3 children suffer because their mum was too exhausted, in  too much pain, just wasn’t going to be my future, I had to find another way.

I  decided to go on my own journey of research and finding alternate solutions. 2017, I retrained in holistic therapies and through mind – body – energy connection, and that book by the late  Louise Hay became my bible!  Little by little I started to reclaim my body as my own, I began  to feel happy again, my body was less exhausted and my emotional and mental health became more peaceful. I gave it everything I had to give. In July 2017, I was feeling stronger than ever and started motorcycle training for my full license. Following a dream I never thought would be possible. I gained my full license in 3 months.

By 2019 as an advanced and accredited in healing modalities and also gained a diploma in life coaching. I was free from the symptoms of fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue, anxiety and depression symptoms had reduced by 75%. I was finally able to live my life riding bikes and enjoying family days out  with the kids,  I had reclaimed my power.  I then created a programme to help others do the same, the 28 days to personal power programme 5 years on and to this day is still changing lives, one day at a time.

Simply by connecting to the mind-body and working with the energies from within, you too can reclaim your health and wellbeing. Are you curious enough to open your mind to exploring the meaning of that for yourself? There’s no one size fits all… remember that.
