Up until that moment, cruising through life had been smooth, comfortable and familiar.
Suddenly and completely unexpectedly, this ‘smooth’ and ‘predictable’ game of ‘happy families’ came to a shattering end and I found myself falling into the deepest, darkest depression possible. To label that period of time as the ‘Dark Ages’ of my life would be an understatement and the only reason I am still alive to tell this story, is because I could not find a way to end it without hurting anyone else… (thinking of others’ pain came in handy this time!)
Now, as I look back on this troublesome time, I can only feel gratitude and humility for this change that I so passionately and thoroughly resisted. It turned to be the best present I could ever have received. Yet, back then, it was as painful, gruelling and horrifyingly scary as pain could ever be… because I fought against it with every smidgen of my being. The shame, the guilt, the blame, the judgement, the resentment clenched their tight and mighty grip on my heart as it was bleeding from the hurt. The soft and comfortable rug was pulled away from under my feet and with it my identity as a mum and a wife was taken away from me. I was left with nothing, having previously lost my dreams, desires, wishes and myself… Empty shell with no will to live – that was me in those dark days and months…
Nature does not know vacuum and from this empty shell, came the biggest growth, personal development and empowerment. If it hadn’t been for my broken heart, I would have carried on living in a dream, willingly suppressing my talents and ignoring the fact that everyone had a purpose in this life, including me…
PSYCH-K put me on the right track to finally return to who I was meant to be from the start but had forgotten along the way.
One day three and a half years ago, my path took me to a Beauty Show in Olympia London. There, at a small stand, surrounded by exhibitors of all trades and kinds, was a tiny diffuser… The significance of this tiny diffuser is huge! I had thought that it would be a cool thing to have one but because my wants and desires did not matter for a long time, a diffuser never really materialised in my house. This particular diffuser had changing lights and was producing amazing aroma at the tiny stand I happened to pass by. My immediate elated reaction was that I was finally going to get it, right there and then! Never, ever had I considered what I would diffuse in it. After what now seems the shortest Master Class in essential oils use and application (including how to use a diffuser), surrounded by noisy tradesmen at this humble doTERRA stand, I ordered my first doTERRA kit with the 10 most important essential oils and a diffuser! I had trust!
Since my 20s when I had my children, I have been a keen Homeopathy fan and so my kids grew up without antibiotics or any other allopathic medicines. As a result, now both of them enjoy excellent health as adults. We started taking supplements when supplements became available, and have had a healthy diet to this day. However, 20 years ago, in the former communist Bulgaria, it was not easy to replace conventional medicine with homeopathy. But I did it, despite all odds, against people’s prejudice and regardless of the common accusations and comments of the kind “You are experimenting with you own children, shame on you!” I trusted my inner knowing that Homeopathy is the way forward and stuck to my guns (This is the one idea I fiercely embraced!) My soul knew the truth and this gave me the courage to face the challenges.
The same thing happened with essential oils… The inner knowing that these 10 little bottles contain nature’s power of incomprehensible magnitude created a huge driving force of empowerment and new discoveries… The ME that had been growing continuously prior to that encounter had to grow even more, in order to keep up with the momentum the oils generated. I had no idea that essential oils support our body’s healing capacity on multiple levels! Now I do, from personal experience too! Did you know that they start with the physical level and help restore the symptoms we experience? Then they go deeper to affect our emotions, our beliefs, our thoughts and even any unresolved generational baggage! (Trust me, I can write a whole book on the topic alone!)
You can tell I am deeply in love with these essential oils as well, can’t you? I have seen them in action with so many people that I can’t stop talking about them. Now I do the most amazing thing. In the time when I am not teaching in a primary classroom (Surprise! Like the mother, so the daughter!), I sell essential oils! I teach people how to use them and how to share them with other people. From a tiny baby to the elderly, everyone can use these oils. From the simple flu and cold to some serious health challenges, there is an oil for that!
To conclude, I would like to extend a humble invitation. A conversation with me about forgiveness, mending a broken heart, shifting limiting subconscious beliefs, or about the healing power of essential oils could very well be your solution when you think you have run out of options, so get in touch. You never know what change is waiting around the corner… And it is ALL GOOD!
