I feel magical.
I really feel so magical. There is not a day that goes by that I'm not in appreciation, excitement, or feeling truly fulfilled.
Less than 10 years ago, however, I was a mess.
I felt insecure, I felt lost, and I was about to graduate with no idea of what to do. My mental and emotional well-being was at an all-time low. On top of that, I was still trying to wrap my head around the traumatic and unexpected loss of a close-friend. It was around this time when I experienced my first anxiety attack. One attack then turned into two, which eventually became monthly, weekly, and then daily anxiety attacks.
I can vividly remember days where I wouldn't leave my home, days where I was bed-ridden because the fear of passing out or something bad happening to me was overwhelming. In the beginning of it all, I thought I could just ignore it. Believe it or not, I didn't think anything was really wrong.
Months passed and the anxiety only got worse. I actually passed out one time and woke up surrounded by EMT's who seemed just as confused as me. I knew it was my anxiety and I knew something was going to have to change. I was not about to go on medication because the idea of turning into a zombie terrified me. I needed something natural but had no idea where to go. I fell to my knees one evening, tears pouring down my face while saying, "God, please, if you take this from me, I promise I will do everything in my power to help others through this."
Now, I'm sure this story would be so much cooler if I could say that "instantly, my anxiety vanished, I was healed, and angels descended from heaven to dance around me!" But sadly no, the journey for me was just beginning. What did happen, however, was I finally realized that if anything was going to change, it was going to have to start within myself.
The work began.
I started immersing myself in all the education that I could find on the power of the mind, the subconscious, quantum theory, universal principles, and the truth of our reality. I spent years and thousands upon thousands of dollars on my education and coaches who steeped me into Meditation and Metaphysics, completely transforming my mind, body, and emotions. With patience and the focus of a hungry lion, things started to change
It was actually quite incredible how quickly my life turned-around during this time. In less than three years, I became a certified Law of Attraction coach, uprooted myself from Ohio to New York City, published articles online, facilitated programs with New York Times Best-Selling authors, featured my music on Mtv, created hit meditations on YouTube, taught classes all throughout New York, watched my business takeoff, overcame my fear of flying (more on that later), and finally learned how to take control of anxiety!
There was no denying the power of what I knew.
And it wasn't just me. I taught the same meditations and wisdom with my clients and watched their lives take off too! It is the most fulfilling thing to be a part of someone else's transformation. The more I do this, the more I realize how important coaching is.
So what does this say for you?
I know with every fiber of my being that whatever you're going through, there is either a Message or Blessing. Sometimes the toughest times in our lives are meant to take us through the most amazing journey. I also know that there is a much MUCH easier way to live. Constant stress and struggle is simply not normal, they were never meant to be normal. You have a Divine power within you that literally draws everything to you. When you align with this power, you will begin to experience how effortless and magical life can be.
