My mother died of cancer when I was 18. It gave me the opportunity to experience death from very close and the precious gift of having to listen to myself and trust my own knowing as a young woman and later as a mother myself. The following year, I moved alone to France. Creating my life in a foreign culture was adventurous and exciting, but losing the connection with my energizing and nurturing nature started wearing me down within a couple of years. My body started sending me signals of an imbalance. That not being “part of my plans”, I didn’t listen to those signals and my body had to start screaming louder for me to stop and acknowledge the situation. It expressed a “dis-ease” through a chronic ulcerative colitis. An inflammatory bowel syndrome that was invalidating and disturbed my life on a regular basis for a couple of years, before the situation finally got critical. At a point, after several medical treatments that weren’t helping, I got so weak that my largely inflamed colon and rectum were entirely removed. I went through a series of three heavy surgeries, difficult, and shameful recoveries. Alone abroad, at the age of 23, I painfully tackled through this challenging sickness episode along with completing my international business education and taking my first steps in the professional world. Even with supportive friends, I experienced deep loneliness, intense pain and profound despair. I was ready to let go of life and give up, but my newly met boyfriend at the time, now my husband, stood relentlessly beside me holding my hand, cleaning my wounds, crying with me and dreaming our magic future.
“I tried to control everything and everyone by resisting change and was fighting against myself avoiding vulnerability at all cost. I wasn’t willing to let go of who I was and allow myself to become something new.”
But deep within myself I somehow knew there had to be something more to life, this could not be it. I was not meant to fade away, to be constantly unsatisfied, experience chronic suffering, only longing for time off and holidays without my children ! Something easier, lighter, brighter, joyful and more meaningful had to be possible. It didn’t FEEL like I was living MY dream. I was living someone else’s life. It hurt !
I had anxiously seeked for help and guidance for my health issues for years without finding any. At the age of 33 I’d really had enough of suffering when I found myself in the hospital again, this time for an urgent bowel obstruction surgery followed by another one a couple of month later to extract an inflamed fallopian tube. I was now afraid of my body and of the painful ways it stopped me regularly. After eight abusive and violent surgeries, years of chronic stress and disease from resisting myself, my nervous system broke down. I had attained a point where I no longer could function, connect with the world outside. Everything seemed unfamiliar, the language, words, culture and this entire society where totally overwhelming to me. I could barely take care of myself and my family. I knew this was a breaking point in my life, that I couldn’t continue down the same way as before if I wanted to stay alive. Things had to change !
It’s then that I knew I had to take responsibility of my own body, healing and wellbeing instead of giving myself into the hands of modern medicine, trusting doctors & medical diagnosis and having pieces and parts being cut out of me. I woke up to myself from a collective hypnosis. The pain and suffering had empowered me to choose to come out of my victimhood and I was invited to follow my wise body’s guidance and called to become my own doctor.
“The pain and suffering had empowered me to choose to come out of my victimhood and I was invited to follow my wise body’s guidance and called to become my own doctor.”
I started to develop my attitude that I then called “healthy egoism” and that I now know is love of myself. Through this holistic process of healing I’ve changed my beliefs, thoughts, feelings and emotions, created a healthy, happy & orgasmic living WITH my vibrant body.
I resisted myself extremely dynamically and the amount of hard work I had to put into my healing journey was directly related to my level of resistance.
I was desperately trying to fit into this reality and inside my body. I now know that change doesn’t have to be that hard and painful. I’m now willing to be ALL of ME, as weird, wonderful, different and amazing that might be. Constantly observing and being in question has entrained me to perceive patterns and symbols and to see the collective and individual dimensions of life. I believe questions create awareness, open up new possibilities and are one of the most powerful tools to create change. I would love to make change easier for YOU by inspiring you to stop resisting yourself and by teaching you how to receive and be more of you by accessing your infinite knowing and tapping into your energy.
My mission is to wake you up, share my wisdom and to guide you through the process of change, whatever that change is for you.
