In my 30’s I was dealing with a lot of stresses, first of all, I was a worrier, felt that if I wasn’t worrying something really bad may happen, uh huh. It seemed logical at the time. Anyway, my mother was dying from breast cancer, I was dealing with an ex-husband who went out of his way to be difficult, was in a job that I was beyond bored with. In a nutshell, I had ulcers on my esophagus and each medical doctor I saw put me on medicines that made me sicker and sicker. My worst fear was that I would develop stomach cancer if I didn’t do something different soon! Long story short, I was led to a herbologist and she also read the eyes (fascinating, iridology).
She put me on herbs and a cleanse ( very important!). My diet was changed to only water, no caffeine, and lean meats grilled or baked and vegetables especially salads. Many mornings salad was my breakfast. The idea was to take away everything I could possibly be allergic to and gradually reintroduce various foods until I knew exactly what my body could digest. After 3 weeks I felt 75% better than I had ever felt in my life, and after about 2 months maybe longer I’d dropped 25 lbs.it was profound!
Since that time I have studied herbs and health and nutrition and I was attuned to Reiki and eventually became a Reiki Master. That’s kind of a cool story too.
My mother was at the end of her journey here and was in the Hospice House dying. I watched her take her final breaths, it was a very slow process but had a profound effect on me. When she passed it opened my eyes to the fact that we are so much more than our day to day concerns and problems, that we are spiritual beings having a human experience and our energy does go on, I saw hers leave her body! I say she gave birth to me twice, physically and spiritually, it was beautiful, sad but lovely and I was so relieved that her suffering was over.
