I have been in two car accidents, one where I totaled my car, one as a passenger, almost drowned as a child, tripped and slipped on cement stairs and wood stairs, over laundry baskets, legs of chairs, and loose carpets more times than I can remember.
My last head injury was four years ago, a pretty serious one where I blacked out, but was alone when it happened. I almost did not survive this one. I remember vaguely being asked if I wanted to go and give up. I did not as I was not ready to go yet. I knew I had much to accomplish yet. Much to contribute. Here I am.
I have hit my head a few times since, mild injuries, but they add up. I also have been ill with other things and the pandemic was no exception. I am still here. Still highly motivated, inspired, positive, and optimistic, and know I am here for a purpose still unfolding before me.
Migraines, headaches, pain, and more affect me regularly. I am learning to manage all and refuse to give in to the chronic pain I experience along with the challenges put in my path to test my perseverance and determination.
I care at my core. I am here to be a guiding light, to mentor, to teach, to motivate, and inspire. This is my purpose and I accept it gratefully and willingly.
My various head injuries or traumas come with some challenges: issues with lighting, noise, crowds, scent sensitivity, challenges around perception, processing information, memory, headaches, migraines, distraction, need for solitude, anxiety, and depression at times, inflammation, and more.
Add in shoulder injuries, sciatica, head, and neck pain because of where I hit my head four years ago, a cycling accident, miscarriages, fractured toes and fingers, divorce, starting over in my life, and adjusting once again to a new location/area.
No Western medicine for me as I am HSP and react to almost all. Highly Sensitive Person which comes with its own stuff. I am all about naturopathy, essential organic oils, healthy eating, chemical free as possible, nature, homeopathy, soothing music, sound healing frequencies, meditation, visualization, journaling, solitude time, exercise, and creativity.
I am eclectic and unique, different, and vibe at a different frequency, but know my soul tribe is out there. I am connected to some amazing humans.🙏
I am spiritual. Nature is my home which soothes me and inspires me daily. Nature is divine’s gift to us and an amazing canvas is before us to make use of.
Neuroplasticity, sound healing, meditation, and visualization have saved me. I would not be where I am at physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually, or creatively without it.
The same for masterminds. For over two years I have been part of an amazing community and team of professionals and friends I consider family. I have grown, healed, been inspired, and motivated because of all of them.
They, like me, are private, humble, but giving, compassionate, caring souls.
Surround yourself with beautiful, caring, and loving souls who know things you do not. Be willing to learn and grow and you all succeed. BUT do it without expectations. Give and care because you can and that is who you are.
I can be vulnerable in a safe space, have access to professionals on a regular basis, give back with my expertise and skills and do so with an open, caring, kind, and compassionate heart, with boundaries in place of course 👍🤣
Please know you can improve and heal. It is a journey. It is a choice. It is a mindset.
Neurons can fire again. Different parts of your brain can step in and take over damaged or injured sections.
Please do not hesitate to reach out to me. While I am not a scientist or specialist, I am a caring soul who understands and has many years of professional experience in the areas of loss, grief, and trauma.
Thank you and love and light to you💖🙏
