– Masaru Emoto
As far back as I can remember, I always felt “different”. I had a sense of somehow not fitting in. I had a pretty dysfunctional childhood. My parents divorced when I was very young, I had 3 different stepmothers and went to several schools as we were always on the move, which doubtlessly played a big part in my feeling out of synch with society’s norms.
Nonetheless, I did my best to conform and went through all the right motions – finding a great job that allowed me to travel the world in my twenties, getting married, having children. On the surface, nobody could have guessed that deep down inside I had this niggling feeling that there was more to me that met the eye and that I was somehow denying my own self because I lacked the courage to speak out and be who I truly am.
When I discovered the amazing world of alternative physical and spiritual teachings in my 30’s, I began to have a sense that I was finally on the right path. I’d always had the feeling that my purpose in life was to help others and after a period of intensive study, I embarked on a second successful career as an alternative practitioner.
However, this was all within the safety net of what I thought was a happy marriage that lasted 22 years. So when my husband announced out of the blue that he wanted a divorce, the outwardly confident persona I’d created – crumbled.
At the time, we were living in the Far East and finding myself far away from my childhood friends, siblings and birth mother, I didn’t just lose my sense of security but lost my identity completely. I was stuck, lost and had no idea how to move forward and was terrified at the prospect of facing life as a single mother of two adolescent boys.
I count my lucky stars now that as an alternative practitioner, I had all these coping techniques to hand that enabled me to embark on my own transformational midlife voyage of self-discovery and recovery. I finally allowed myself to reconnect to the spiritual side of myself that we all have within us but which unless we have an unwavering religious faith, often goes ignored. This gave me the courage to delve deeper and finally face my life up until then with a total no-holes-barred honesty.
As I started peeling away the layers, taking it slowly one step at a time, and from a place of complete self-compassion, I was able to unravel and understand all the limiting beliefs, doubts and fears I had been carrying around from my childhood conditioning.
This acceptance and understanding enabled me to move forward and embrace the challenges ahead. I packed up my bags and moved back to the UK with my boys, with a renewed sense of self-assurance and haven’t looked back since!
