The Power of Self-Healing
I want to share with you a story. I believe it is an immensely powerful story.
You know when you’re really focused on doing something or achieving something and even though you won’t stop at getting it because you really, really want that thing that you’re working towards, but the whole time you’re having these really big doubts and fears and questioning yourself and questioning why isn’t this working??
Who has been there? Who knows exactly what I am talking about? I am sure we have all experienced something like that!
Well earlier last year, I experienced just that... with my health.
For the last 14 years, I have struggled with my health after being diagnosed with auto-immune diseases. I had times when I was so chronically ill, I was unable to function, to look after myself and I spent weeks and months at a time, sick in bed, with a whole host of symptoms.
And yet in the last 4 years, I have been managing things pretty well. I had the occasional small flare-up, but nothing like where I was at during the worst chronic stages.
You see, I have poured a lot of time and energy into my healing over the years. I have discovered many modalities along the way to help with my recovery. When I discovered life coaching and hypnosis, that’s when my healing started to accelerate, and in dealing with past traumas, emotions and beliefs I had been carrying, and also with the help of my naturopath, I was able to come off all medications
And yet I have always had this underlying fear that I would get sick again. Not just that, but that I would get so sick and not be able to live my best life.
I have had a few knocks and setbacks the last couple of years and so it did not really surprise me when I ended up with a kidney infection earlier in the year. What did surprise me though was that my Rheumatologist told me that it was likely that Lupus was now attacking my kidneys and I’d have to go on some hardcore medication for the rest of my life otherwise I might end up on dialysis.
As I have been doing things pretty naturally these last few years, the thought of going back on a toxic cocktail of chemicals did not appeal to me at all. In fact, it terrified me.
Knowing that I would spend the next 3 weeks having rounds of tests for my kidneys and other organs and endometrial stuff I’d also been going through, I went back to my naturopath, got the right herbs to support me and thus started a rigorous routine of emotional and energetic clearing.
Because what do we know about the mind/body connection?
We know that everything is connected and whenever there is some pain or illness in the body, it is our body sending signals and messages telling us to wake up and listen to what is really going on.
So, I looked up all the emotional connections to do with autoimmune, lupus, kidneys, endometriosis, inflammation, fatigue, nausea, pain etc and the list goes on.
And I used the many incredible processes I have learnt in my studies for clearing of what we call the “negative emotions” such as fear, frustration, guilt, struggle, resentment and so on.
I used my Matrix Therapies skills, NLP, Colour therapy, Sound Healing, Reiki, and a lot of Grounding and Energetic work and of course Meditation and Visualisation exercises.
And even though I was doing this kind of work every day, I still had that underlying fear.
“What if I’m so sick I have to be medicated? What if I am so sick, I have to go see that kidney doctor and get a biopsy? What if my tests come back positive for cancer?”
I actually rushed home and started writing my Will straight away after being told one test was testing for cancer and told myself that I was actually being very practical in planning ahead! Yikes!
Until one night at 4 am when I couldn’t sleep, I decided to treat my fear like a negative influence on my life and I cut the chords to it, determined that this fear was not going to hold me back anymore.
Isn’t it amazing though that when we have made such great friends with an emotion such as fear, how challenging it is to actually let go of it?
So the weeks went by and I slept a lot as my body and mind system were processing all of this work I was doing and I could tell even in my dreams that the work was going on behind the scenes!
And when I finally walked into my Rheumatologist’s office 3 weeks later and he read the notes from my last visit and straight-up asked me what medication I wanted to go on and I said to him with a very definite tone “none”, well, that was when things got really interesting!
He started going through my test results, asking me a whole bunch of questions, and then got me to stand up and do some flexibility tests etc and then he sat down, looked me in the eyes and said:
“Well whatever you’re doing, keep doing it because I don’t think you even have Lupus anymore”.
I was like “What”????
So many question marks!
“What do you mean? How is that even possible?”
He said “Your Lupus antibodies have come back as negative”
For the first time in 13 years of struggling with chronic illness, this blessed music to my ears was such a huge surprise that I honestly could not even believe it! I could barely even take the information in! And it took me days to process these results!
That I have actually healed myself.
It does work.
Yes, it has taken MAMMOTH effort on my part.
My journey has not been easy by any means.
But I am one determined lady who will do whatever it takes to reach my goal. And my goal of being healthy and strong is now my reality.
I have healed from Lupus. I have healed from Endometriosis.
Not using any drugs or medicines.
Just doing everything naturally – working with herbs and supplements, meditating, working on my mindset and healing my emotional health. And that has been the most important part.
Especially for someone like me who has been through a lot of trauma and carried those traumas in my mind/body system for decades until I was finally ready to release them.
I still have some work to do and I will keep doing my self-healing work so I can be the absolute best of myself and share my story with others.
But the really great news is that I have just had my six-monthly check-up, and my Rheumatologist said that we are done. I have no auto-immune markers, no inflammation, no kidney issues, no anaemia. I no longer need to have any more tests.
All of the good self-healing work I have done over the years has totally paid off. I no longer have any auto-immune dis-ease at all. Isn’t that amazing?
And you know what? If I can do it, then you can too! It is hard work, but damn, it is worth it.
And hell yes, I wanted to give up so many times over the years!
But how I would be leading with love if I were to give up on myself?
For me, this has been one epic journey of self-love, self-care, discovering my true self-worth and doing whatever it takes to create a me who I am so happy with and so proud of, and ready to show the world who I really am.
I am sharing my story with you because I want you to see how far I have come and that with a bit, (or maybe a lot!) of work, that you can heal too. And I am here for you to help you on your journey.
