Finding Freedom Within ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

My Journey

                              Growing up I'd always felt life didn't have to be a struggle. Yet, I somehow managed to fall        
                               into the existence of modern society, obtaining a job I didn't enjoy, a lifestyle that lived for
                                the weekends, and felt all the limitations of what I SHOULD do as oppose to what I wanted to do.

I was unfulfilled, lost and exhausted.

This finally came to a head in 2012 when I fell sick with severe depression and a debilitating virus. On top of this I was fired from my job (ironically working at a gym) because of all the lost time at work.
My body shutdown, my brain wasn’t communicating with my body, so even just driving or showering or any basic tasks were super challenging for me. Life’s everyday tasks moved in slow motion. I felt like I lost everything - no job, no health, lost most of my relationships except a few close ones...
I had to start all over from scratch. 
I had always admired others who led healthy, active lives of joy and abundance - people who seemed to enjoy the small things in life and wakeup with fulfillment and gratitude. And looking back now, it was such a deep desire for change that I never thought I could achieve.
One day I sat myself down, and let my heart write down a list of dreams. And while I didn’t fully believe that I could have all of these things I was jotting on that piece of paper, slowly things started to change. 
Armed with my list, I started to put one foot in front of the other. 
So began the long intense journey of releasing the attachment to who I thought I was, and embracing the truth of who I was becoming.
I was terrified.
Yet trusting, on the most subtle level
I didn't know where to start, all I knew was I needed rest.
I started nourishing myself: lying in the sun on the beach, resting, journaling, spending time with the only two people who I felt really supported me. 
I also attended regular therapy sessions and kinesiology sessions. 
I ran with my daily desires and upon reflection, my intuition. Every day I made the decision that I was the only person in the world who mattered.
Every day I made the decision to take responsibility for changing my life. I knew I needed to return to exercise once I was getting stronger. Gradually I built on this every day. I had found something to focus on that was building me up because I was listening to what my body needed daily.
By rebuilding myself through exercise, I came to understand the power of the mind. I was able to push myself and push my boundaries through my daily thoughts.
I was able to run distances I didn’t think I could run and do other things I didn’t think I would be able to physically do.
I returned to the health and fitness industry, helping to support others in their journey back to health. I quickly discovered the limitations with only nourishing the physical and nutritional, and knew I needed to understand the relationship between the mind and body.
Enter: kinesiology.  
I signed up for the one year course thinking it was a stepping stone, but since then it’s opened me up to a whole other world of how we function. I didn’t realize how much this modality would change my life and allow me to understand the direct connection between our mind and our health. 
I learnt the language of our body's and how our physical health is a barometer for our mental health, and life.
Since then, I’ve become passionate about educating others in the mind-body-soul connection and how this creates your reality. 
 I have since made a commitment to helping others breakthrough their mental limitations, find a sense of peace within their thoughts about themselves and their life and better understand themselves so they can easily release these blocks, and enable them more freedom and abundance.
To know that you DO have a choice as to how much you suffer in life.
That your only responsibility is to look after yourself, and life will deliver abundance, freedom and fulfillment as a bi-product.
