By age 31 I had several miscarriages which led to a hysterectomy and the depression that I had carried with me since I was a teenager swallowed me up further still as I began spiralling further out of control.
To “get away from it all” in the Summer of 2015 I decided to go to America for a couple of months and it was whilst I was out there in this beautiful place, with amazing people having awesome experiences I knew I should be happier than I was. I couldn’t shake the sadness or escape the inner dialogue, I was still sad deep down. I realised that the answer to my grief, sadness and depression wasn’t in pills, running away or making bad decisions and felt a little hopeless as didn’t know where to go next.
Upon returning from the States I spoke with my brother and told him I didn’t feel like I could do this life thing much longer. He gave me the most life changing pieces of advice; to look at my life through the eyes of gratitude and to begin meditating. This conversation happened on the 12th September 2015 and by the 1st October I was ready to stop the pills, and so I did.
A steady practice of meditation, reading, studying and getting reconnected with the teachings of the East helped lift me out of the lengthy and taxing withdrawal. It has been the most stunning journey of self awareness. I have gone from complete sorrow to pure joy and purpose, happiness and love. I am so grateful for every single thing that brought me to this point because it has resulted in the ignition of a purpose far beyond myself, now I just want people to know that if I can do it, they can too.
I have founded Intuitive Knowledge to help awaken people to the power that lays dormant within them, share with them the tools of our magnificent minds and how we can use them to live more happier and fulfilled lives.
Meditation has been an essential component of my recovery, especially during the withdrawal process and now to keep life in beautiful harmony.
Sharing its importance by being a part of an event with MOMM is a huge honour.
