It was 2011. I had been working with abused women who were confused thinking, "this can't be my life," on an 'underground' level, forming groups by word-of-mouth only, not yet fully seeing myself as a Shaman.
The abuse came to these women in all forms, strong enough to prevent them from being who they were meant to be. (or so they thought..) I took a stand for these women.
I later found myself holding space for people frothing at the mouth, trembling in fear, and clawing at themselves... and time and time again the Shaman that was leading the journey called me (more like commanded me) to the center of the ceremony rooms to facilitate healings... as if it was a regular part of the ceremony to call me up, or something! (I was still confused why he would be asking me, as I didn't see my true self yet)
I found myself agreeing to the call and stepping forward in what became many ceremonies.
Having no labels or assumptions about what's happening has been the best way I've let Life teach me.
The results people get with my work are not typical...
One woman was double-majoring in college, and when I guided her to the real root cause of her struggles, she quit school to follow her dreams and was immediately asked to go on tour for her real purpose - singing medicine music. Another woman released 60+lbs, not changing her diet, but only after guiding her to the real root cause - now she is free to live her true identity. After only one private session with me, one gal's eyes began changing back to their original color (shocking to her, after they had been speckled, showing toxicity) - she is now unafraid to reveal her truth and dive deeper into real relationships. Another woman made more money in 90 days, than she had in the entire year previously.... because previous to my work with her, she was living someone else's life plan...
Why did all this happen?
I wasn't guiding them to force self-love, but walking them through the scaffolding to gain self-trust.
They exponentially receive results because we did not rush to get to step 2 (self love) and step 3 (love others / leadership), but rather fully embracing step 1 (trust self, and trust source).
Just a few years before this I hadn't been fully trusting myself. I moved back to my family's house so I could get back on my feet.
The contrast from then to now is immeasurable.
So you could imagine how I feel now, receiving messages of results at this caliber.
Telling me how they could have never imagined life feeling this good before.
Telling me that their families are now reaping the benefits too.
Placing me in front of their communities to ensure their families know about the innerwork that works.
I experience that feeling of flow in every aspect of my life because I now trust myself and am only willing to share my truth with everyone I come across. I am the same person to my clients as I am to my best friends, my mentor, my parents, or my grandma.
