I had the chance to attend Gabrielle Bernstein’s Spirit Junkie Masterclass in NYC, September 12th-14th (If you haven’t checked out Gabrielle Bernstein, do it) I had an awesome time in New York and met some really amazing coaches. The class gave me the opportunity to learn some new tools to share with my clients and network with other coaches who have the desire to spread love and light to the world. I am now level 1 certified with Gabrielle Bernstein! I feel so grateful for having the opportunity to take the class and understand the importance of this work. I knew I loved helping others create a life they love, I just didn’t realize how many tools I have for those really ready to step into their personal power.
I started my journey when I was suffering from extreme panic attacks. The Doctor who treated me asked me if I planned on taking my life because I cried in his office. I didn’t know what was going on? I needed help, not a Dr. asking if I was going to end it all……..WHAT? He sent me to see a Psychologist who asked me a ton of really hard questions and in the end tried to put me on anti-anxiety medication. I was so sad and felt so alone. What the hell was I going to do? I didn’t want to pop pills and ignore what my body is trying to tell me.
I went to see another Dr. who tried to treat me for asthma because I had a low lung capacity result. He handed me medication and sent me off. I was so confused and still suffered from panic attacks.
Years later I decided to take voice lessons and that’s were everything changed. My teacher only dressed in white and started every class with these wacky breathing exercises. I was kinda weirded out, but also really curious. He taught me how to sing jazz but he mostly taught me to breathe. I later realized, after taking yoga classes, all of the kooky breathing exercises were pranayama. I learned mediation and chanting from him and was connected to my first ever spiritual group.
It took me years to heal my crazy anxiety and be ok with myself. I needed tools and my wacky and amazing journey led me here to this Blog and my dream of helping others show up BIG in their life, free of self-loathing and kooky panic attacks.
Fall-ing in LOVE with you
