Have you ever faced a challenging life experience?
Did you ever struggle to shift from a state of anxiety to a feeling of love and gratitude?
This evocative and inspirational book will empower you to make positive changes in your life. Through one of my life’s greatest challenges I lost connection to a deep part in me. I found myself fully aware while the surgeon cut into me. I experienced symptoms of PTSD and postpartum depression as a result of the trauma I suffered.
This story illustrates the powerful antidote to depression and anxiety. It holds many suggestions for you to manage your own stress symptoms. If you are unhappy with life or who you are, I have offered recommendations to help reclaim your complete connection with life through holistic practices and alternative therapies.
You may be holding onto emotions or carrying the effect of something that happened in your life. Maybe you’ve had a traumatic experience. Perhaps it’s an accumulation of life's challenges and you’ve been bearing them and haven’t dealt with them along the way because it’s either too overwhelming or you feel you haven’t had time.
When you’re containing these emotions your building up a reservoir of tension in the body. This can create stress on your nervous system and increase your anxiety levels. This creates a state of contraction, not just in your body but also your life begins to contract. Throughout my own recovery I appreciate the frustration of being locked into that place.
I’m a mom with three children. I’ve been practising yoga for over twenty years and work with clients privately and in groups supporting them through their own life’s encounters. The knowledge and experience I’ve gained has helped me guide them in their spiritual growth.
Throughout my own process of recovery from the trauma I created a context for all I learned. In sharing my story, I wish to provide hope for recovery with suggestions and practices to reclaim what’s been lost. Trauma doesn’t have to define who you are or rob you of your freedom and joy.
