Creating a community for healing, freedom & renewal
I was introduced to natural healing and holistic living at an early age through my Mexican heritage. From my grandparents, my mother learned early on about natural remedies and cultural philosophies that had been passed down through many generations in my family.
Growing up my mom taught me a lot about using natural solutions as substitutes for western traditional products that helped to clean, to heal and even to ward off pests. As a teenager, my mother sought out alternative approaches to handle my health issues, such as going to a chiropractor for my scoliosis, and an acupuncturist for my digestive issues (IBS & lactose intolerance). I did not realize it at the time, but my mom was preparing me for my own path as a mother, and a holistic healer.
THE POWER OF HOLISTIC HEALTH
When 2 of my 3 daughters were born with severe food allergies to dairy, egg and peanuts/tree nuts our world was turned upside down. Traditional medicine failed to provide a solution. My openness and experiences from my youth, combined with my determination, propelled me to find a holistic method to help my children. Through Allergy Release Technique®, (a modality that treats the whole person, not just the symptoms), my children were ultimately cured of their food allergies and can now eat all of their allergen foods freely.
EMBRACING THE JOURNEY
In 2017, I made a monumental decision to leave the security and prestige of my corporate job of 14 years with Converse, Inc. As a mother and a wife and working full time, my tank was empty. I was burned out. I was having panic attacks daily, I was 35 lbs overweight and I struggled significantly with depression and anxiety.
TAKING A NEW PATH
I knew in the deepest part of my soul that I could not continue living this way, but my analytical mind would push back and say but “you have such a good thing here”. If I left, what would I do?
I was terrified and broken, but there was something inside me. It was a light, a small burning blue flame that never burnt out. It was always there. It was a constant thought, a voice, a pulling that I knew that I was meant to be doing something different. I wasn’t sure what, but I knew it had something to do with helping people in need and those less fortunate than myself. For as long as I can remember I'd had this instinctual and intuitive draw to help people.
Since leaving my corporate job and by investing time and energy into myself and my own struggles, I have been able to naturally eliminate my daily panic attacks, come off of my antidepressant medication (after 20 years) and lose 35 lbs. What helped me to overcome many of my issues was becoming aware of my mindset, my constant negative thoughts and self-criticism that needed to change. I educated myself, I trusted my intuition and took leaps of faith without having everything figured out (that was difficult for me). Through this process of self-healing I found holistic approaches that targeted the issues that I was struggling with such as the Emotion Code, Nutritional Response Testing (N&WHS), Reiki and Shamanic Techniques to help with anxiety and issues of self worth. I discovered books and teachings from Dr. Joe Dispenza and Dr. Joan Rosenberg.
And then, I found my tribe.
I started to surround myself with like-minded people that had the same passion and philosophies as me. The passion to help, educate and inspire people. I met people through my certification programs and my classes and began to step into my new life. I began to use my voice and to let people know that there were things they could do to help with struggles and ailments that they were facing. I found a community that taught me, that inspired me and motivated me to make the world a better place. All of these pieces helped reduce my stress, helped me to learn how to deal with my emotions and to make healthier, proactive lifestyle choices.
For me, the proof is in the results. I have seen my life and the life of my family change so significantly that it’s hard for me to express in words. And now I look at all of the twists and turns and mountains and hills that I have climbed that led me to this moment… and I sit in a complete state of gratitude. For these experiences have led me to where I am today and have enabled me to do what I love and to do what I am meant to be doing....which is helping you.
