I first sought therapy in 2004 because I no longer could handle the pain of life as I knew it. In the last 12 years or so, I have not been able to cure my PTSD, Chronic Fatigue and Fibromyalgia after trying every treatment I could find that was supported by research, medication and alternative medicine. However, what I have managed to do is to turn my daily anguish into possibilities of grace (joy) which leaves me feeling deep love and deep gratitude throughout my day. I now feel these are the two life lessons I came to earth to learn.
This has made me think differently about my mind, body and spirit. I now think of my body, mind, and spirit as perfect the way they are because they have brought me to this beautiful and blest place in my life. It has helped me to turn my suffering into gratitude on a daily basis. I never thought this would be possible.
While I feel my suffering daily, and with grief and sadness that accompany it, I also hold a warm loving inner smile that fills every cellular structure throughout my body. I am so alive and connected to the life force energy within me and around me. I am complete. I am in resonance with all that is.
My blog over the next few months will be about these moments of grace and my connection to source throughout my day and week. I look forward to sharing them with you.
I am moving into a new role as both teacher and student. The last 12 years I have been a student of life and it is once again time to share what I have learned and continue to learn as I embrace my life of anguish and deep joy, gratitude and love. I look forward to hearing about possibilities of grace and source in your life as well.
