My journey... from the beginning
As a child growing up in the late 1960s and early 70s, phrases like "don't speak unless spoken to", "I'll give you something to cry about" and "it's better to be seen and not heard" were programmed into my subconscious mind. This led me to believe that what I had to say was not important and that I shouldn't interrupt "grown-up" talk.
I was in my early 20s when I started to realize (and then question) this programming. My father died at 53 after developing a blood clot following heart surgery. His medical professionals were not interested in discussing his care, even though my family and I could tell intuitively that something wasn't right following his surgery.
Months after his death, I needed to have a basic outpatient procedure done on my foot. Unfortunately, I was assigned a medical professional who assured me that it was a simple procedure and to not "ask so many questions" until it was completed. My subconscious mind told me that I should trust my healthcare provider. They knew what they were doing, they had the authority. My intuition, on the other hand, was telling me that something wasn't right. Staying silent and not trusting my intuition resulted in more complicated procedures. I spent four months on crutches, had two subsequent surgeries (by a podiatry surgeon) to repair the malpractice and had to learn to walk again.
I started in the "real world" as a sales manager at a pharmaceutical company. By traditional standards, I was successful. I drove an earned luxury vehicle and made an excessive amount of money for what I was doing. That came to an end in 1996 when I felt that something was drawing me to Ithaca, New York to practice massage therapy. At first, my inner voice told me that I should stay at my job. I was "successful" and "doing well", but my intuition was telling me that something needed to change. After being downsized at my job, I knew my intuition reigned supreme again. That's when I started to realize that the events in my life had not been happening TO me, but FOR me.
My greatest gifts... and learning lessons
One year after becoming a licensed massage therapist, my husband and I started our family with the birth of my son. At around 18 months, he was diagnosed with asthma, and we were left scratching our heads with medical professionals as to how he acquired it. Each time we visited the hospital, the medical professionals' solution was to administer medication that would hype up his personality while trying to optimize his oxygen levels so we could return home. Again, my subconscious mind wanted to trust my son's healthcare providers and all of their knowledge. However, my intuition told me that we needed to approach this challenge holistically. My husband and I were introduced to essential oils and were amazed at the benefits that my son reaped from them. The holistic approach proved to be a turning point for our family. It proved that our intuition was once again correct. I'm so grateful that he has not had any asthma-related incidents in over 20 years.
A few years after our son was born, we welcomed my daughter. She began figure skating at the age of six and our family spent the following 12 years watching her pursue her passion. It was incredible watching her learn and grow throughout her career. It was eye-opening to learn about high-level skaters who, after years of sacrificing everything to the sport they loved, identified as figure skaters rather than referring to it as an activity that they did. This mentality is very common in elite athletes. By being there for my daughter during her years of training, it taught me to focus on the journey instead of the end goal, celebrating the victories along the way. It did not, however, prepare me for the void I felt after no longer needing to drive my daughter 90 minutes to the rink and back five days a week for training. Upon her graduation from high school, she decided to skate on a professional level before heading to college. While I was overjoyed and bursting with pride for her, the transition meant that my part was complete. I was no longer the skating mom with all of the associated commitments...and I felt lost. I struggled with my sense of identity. I often asked myself, "Now what? Who am I? Where do I go from here?"
