I recently put this post on Facebook. I love Facebook. I use it to inspire others.
I am not a CEO or a successful business person. My books which I have been told are excellent aren’t even on Kindle yet or Amazon. (Although I promise you they will be.). I haven’t been to University, in fact I left school at fifteen.
I have overcome severe abuse, electric shock treatment, and masses of forced drugs that put me in a coma after my baby was born. I had six months in a body cast after an accident that threatened to paralyze me, severe PTSD, twenty years of chronic pain (which I am now free of) and many times I prayed to die, before I understood why I was here.
I have never stopped searching, learning and doing all I could to never give up. It is my dearest wish to pass on to others the many ways I have learned to overcome illness, depression and to know joy and peace.
There were lots of beautiful times before even amongst the sadness. We are never left alone and we are always given a way to overcome. Even my ex husband created joy and love and much healing for me and though we separated and he has another life I have immense gratitude for him and for many things in my life along with the challenges.
Don Miguel Ruiz says we are ‘Domesticated’. We are programmed to see life a certain way and until we understand this we cannot awake. We stay in the old patterns, the old thoughts.
When I began to realize that my life was my own I began to change.
I stayed for two months in a rain forest in Maui. I climbed down a very high cliff holding onto a rope (even though I am terrified of heights) down to the amazing birthing pools in Maui and I nearly drowned in the ocean. (But I would not have missed a moment.). I stood in a dormant volcano and called to the goddess Pele. I watched fire dancing on a nude Beach. I spent twelve days with a shaman. I went on a catamaran and saw dolphins.
It was m dream to go to university but I was told we couldn’t afford for me to go. I went for a little while and to my great surprise I got 4.0. After stopping going there I did everything in my power to become a Master Herbalist and Nutritionist. I also certified as life coach in emotional healing and a hypnotherapist. With the wonderful knowledge I learned in holistic healing I got rid of a large tumor in eight weeks naturally and many other illnesses by learning natural laws.
After my divorce I visited Costa Rica and I stayed in the most incredible places. I also went to stay in Los Angeles in Hollywood and met incredible friends and inbetween I still cried myself to sleep because I still had to release the patterns of being told I was worthless and would amount to nothing.
When I was alone it was hard but I spent many weeks in beautiful hotels and treated myself like a princess. At least I was going to grieve in luxury. I ended up owing money because I didn’t understand the tax system but I don’t regret one moment.
I was still in pain at that time and I studied every morning to take my mind off the severe physical pain I was in. I learned that there are Universal Laws to live by and I let go of the artificial ones.
Last year I painted for the first time and I used an old canvas from Savers second hand shop. It was a large painting of an ocean wave. MY budget didn’t stretch to oils and so I used house paint and I used broken glass for the foam and shells and pebbles in the sea bed. It was auctioned at a gala and the money was donated to to The Rape Recovery Center. By the painting I wrote, “No matter how broken we think we are, we are All Beautiful Diamonds. I also spoke at an evening for rape and sexual abuse victims and I read my poetry and inspirational writing.
For years the severe chronic pain had dogged my life but five months ago I got rid of it. Not with drugs. I will not take them. Now I can move forward.
I am so ready to share my writing, my books and the love I have.
I’ve cried a million tears wishing I could move forward faster. And I have smiled a trillion smiles of gratitude. I will never give up. And I’m going to do a You Tube channel. I’m a great grandma now and I love that I have three beautiful daughters and fourteen grandchildren but I am never going to give up on my dream of leaving a legacy, not just for my children, but for everyone I can touch.
So I’m just putting this out there. And I’m saying these things so you will know that there is nothing absolutely nothing you cannot overcome.
No matter who you are, no matter what is happening in your life and no matter how difficult or dark life seems I promise you that when you believe in yourself and when you know your thoughts create your reality you can overcome anything.
There Is Always Another Way. ????????????????????????????????
