in the deepest part of me, i had always been searching for a soulful connection with me.
I was yearning to embrace who I am, to know and be at peace with all of me, particularly as a professional woman without children compounded by a traumatic childhood. the unexpected death of my father and a car accident resulting in PTSD.
There was this gap between the woman I showed to the world and the woman I felt inside. I couldn’t find the bridge to connect the two and reconcile all these emotions swirling inside of me. I had lost sight of who I was.
This created such shame and an inner turmoil that no one could see – even myself for a long time – as it can be hard to acknowledge and talk about your emotions when you have been through a life-changing experience.
As a professional woman, I was fearful of what would people think. Would I be judged and it be seen as a sign of weakness or failure in this world where logic, planning and structure are more important than emotions, creativity, and intuition?
I often felt shame, stuck, restricted, unhappy and my life felt effortful without much fun, even though I would have denied this.
I never felt I was enough. There was something missing – ME – my glorious, beautiful, vulnerable, intuitive, and divine part of me.
I was aching to be me. But who was I without my stories? My conditioning about having to be a mother? My beliefs about being a woman without children? Without fear, guilt, and shame?
It was time to let go of these restrictions with love, compassion, gratitude, and forgiveness. To put my past to rest. To listen to the whispers of my soul. And to allow me to be me.
That is how Unfold Your Freedom came to pass. To support you as I have been and still am with personalised sessions incorporating a combination of Akashic Record readings, guided insight meditation, EFT (tapping), Reiki, and psychotherapy.
It now gives me such joy seeing women, like I did, get excited about being themselves with a sense of freedom knowing they are creating their lives in their own way free from social norms and beliefs around being a woman in this pronatalism society.
That is how I am part of women’s transformation knowing they have been seen, heard, and witnessed with total acceptance and without judgment. I love weaving and connecting the threads of their life to create their own beautiful and unique tapestry from what has brought them to where they are now to where they want to be. To ultimately live a life that is theirs and on their terms.
