As I write and go out about sharing with others, often people think, I am just a happy person with no stress or understanding of it. My disposition bright and my passion to share inspiring only because I have walked through incredible amounts of stress that effected my health! Your mess is your message so to speak and I was one in quite a quagmire a few years ago. I wouldn't even say I am out of it but I still have a happy life of joy and pleasure in spite of that. It is why I teach for what I share WORKS!
I left my home where my "job" was as an organic flower farmer. I left a man I loved but couldn't make things work and moved into a friends home in quite a scurry. I just needed peaceful energy. I had no job, was a bit broken hearted, dissolved my family of sorts and started anew with nothing of my old life. Many friends disappeared, my income had to be created, my kingdom was gone where I balanced and played and I was a mess. Yet something inside said this is how you will thrive eventually so I kept going.
2 years in, I was exhausted trying to manage all these things of a new life and I got very ill for 2 weeks. Just exhaustion. That illness brought on migraines that I never had before and upon getting better, I couldn't see fully out of my right eye. That became misdiagnosed and a year later, as I thought I was getting glasses, I was sent immediately to a glaucoma specialist. Upon arrival there, a panic ensued over me and my eye which I still wasn't sure what was going on, was there for hours for the pressure in my eye was the highest the expert had ever seen. She was saving me from losing any more vision at that moment for the pressure on my eye was 70% and it should be 15%!
Needless to say I was under pressure both emotionally, mentally, physically and in a very scary position. Had I known how hard it would of been, stressful, burnout, exhausted and in adrenal stress enough to lose vision, maybe I wouldn't of ever left! However, i didn't know and I knew that something had to change in life. I would never suggest anyone do this "runaway" thing that I chose for I didn't have cash, didn't think it through and just knew I needed a shift in living.
Fast forward 5 years, I am here, happy, healing, more joy filled and living the mastery I was taught. Thankfully, I had some Himalayan masters drop into my farm 3 years before I left that taught me of my body vehicle and physical ways of living. For I needed that brand of understanding for the next leg of life or I would have graver health issues.
The radical lifestyle change and stress upon me was incredible. Smart I was to put into practice for 8 years the understanding I gained and continue to do the things I was taught. There is no easy road here on the planet. We all have our issues. They turned me on to a wisdom that helped me through the hardest ordeal of my life. Still finding joy, bliss even, learning of my body, how all life dramatically effects it and how to keep going, find my balance again and again until I could reach a greater level of awareness and health.
It is an unfolding continually for we are in a stressed out world. Yet, the understanding of my body finally kicked in through practice to where I am healing my eye and have no doubt that my sight will come back again and this glaucoma pressure will be healed. I learned intimately how the emotions, mental thoughts and body unawareness can hurt us physically. I learned how to manage despite conditions that life is still beautiful, birds still chirp and can bring me back to precious states of loving life in all its maladies. I learned that stress can be released and flow can exist in the worst of conditions. I learned that mind, body, emotions are so connected to health and must all be dealt with or we do injury ourselves terribly.
Had I used Western medicine only, I obviously use it for my eye currently, I would of been on antidepressants, stress drugs and who knows what else. Instead, other than my eye drops, I used all of these issues to learn of the healing and expressive arts more fully to balance my health. With the body wisdom I learned from the Masters and continually investigation into all healing modalities, I am finally on the back side of this great healing crisis.
I fully understand stress, fear, guilt, anxiety, survival, recreation, loss, loneliness, displacement, no home of my own, sadness, all the deep dark emotions of life as well as running in full adrenal burnout. I am also a minister and at the same time, I still supported others and walked through challenge with them. I had to learn to care for me first and not be the endless caregiver. I learned to live in the moment, not past or future for all scared me. I am just now realizing the full brilliance I was taught. I understand my emotional nature implicitly and that is a saving grace as a woman. I know energy vibration from all sides and was powerfully instructed how to enjoy life through it all.
When I go out and teach, share my knowledge of pleasure, play, oxytocin, relaxation and less mind, I am very clear on how and why this works. It is powerful and although not of your normal fare of answers to stress, I watch science back up those Masters wisdom as time goes by. it is a powerful shift to be truly aware of your body and its magic. It takes time but the results are faster than anything else I have seen or tried.
I wanted to put my story of anxiety, burnout, adrenal stress and health issues so all could see, I am not different with those issues. It is the approach to healing and life that I share. The Yoga of Living is indeed a great way to ride in the flow!
