Through releasing what is stopping you , you can nourish your mind and heart and unveil your spiritual glow,How did I get here.
Well, let me share my story and recovery with you
Writing or actually re-writing my about me section; it is not easy.
I have been on a spiritual and business path almost all my life. Throughout this experience, I have been re-discovering myself through the light and love of the Universe. For years, I suffered from physical, mental and emotional pain, and also I kept going with a feeling of emptiness. I became a master at hiding my pain and emotions from everyone, even myself. I was addicted to approval, to say yes, to get the job done, and to push over the limit of my exhaustion.
Until one day, I just couldn’t keep it up. I felt broken, empty, and like a failure.
I was two women in one. One that was stronger, confident, driven warrior that just went chasing her dreams against the current. And then the other one who struggled with deep insecurities, anxiety, and deep inside, I felt really unhappy and ashamed for being so.
My life had no meaning; it just had recognitions, titles, frenemies, cool parties, and nothing really fulfilling. I was drowning and experiencing depression and anxiety. Besides that, I also battled against anorexia for several years. Somehow, I kept going and going… until my body collapsed.
When I recovered from my eating disorders, I started a path in healing my body/mind. However, it was years later when I realized that what I had experienced in the past was step 1. I realized that I have been lying to myself for years by pushing and running away from the pain. I was looking for happiness outside of myself, trying to be authentic by pretending to be this character I had built long ago that was so hard to keep updated and to have an exciting life or routine. This character helped me get distracted from my old wounds, but it was exhausting to hide my true self from my false self.
I couldn’t keep up the “everything is under control” mode. I had so much pain inside it was just too heavy to keep going. Living from the outside-in was not sustainable anymore. I was terrified, but I had no choice… there was nothing else to loose. I took a break and prayed for a Divine intervention. I desperately craved for a meaningful life, but I had no idea where or how to start. The only thing I had in my pocket was my discipline and this discipline allowed me to commit to finding my truth and purpose in life.
I started my journey into a deep transformation process.
My healing was very unique, and it didn’t happen overnight. My process drove me to dive deep into several layers of my psyche, breakdowns and breakthroughs moments, and divine guidance. The basis of my healing is founded on my evolving relationship with God.
During this time, I got certified in different fields, coaching, reiki II, tapping, spirit junkie masterclass, yoga, meditation, and started studying A Course in Miracles among many other tools that brought me back to life and unveiled my purpose. These experiences have taught me different ways to connect and relate to my body, to release repressed emotions, to reprogram my mind, and to live in SPIRIT.
This gift from the Universe inspired me to take a new route in my professional and personal life. It was through this transformation process that I was inspired to create my own method: MdM Inside out Method, which is an integral approach to build a meaningful life or career by integrating the four bodies: mind, body, energy/emotions, and spirituality.
In order to lead anything in life, we all need to learn how to lead our lives first and get really intimate with our truth. That is why I developed a method to peel the layers, get to know yourself, release what is holding you back, what is stopping you from success, happiness, and fulfillment.
Let me help you live and empowered and authentic life
