I am a mother of five beautiful children, married for 21 years, and a registered nurse for 19 years. In 2017 I was top of my career. I had come to the realization that I likely would be a floor nurse forever because I would interview trying to achieve promotions and never was promoted. My son, at thirteen years of age, was diagnosed with brain-cancer. My relationships were falling apart. My life motto was “I am who I am and if people wanted to be in my life, they would just accept me’. I wasn’t raised with self-awareness, nor did I have any idea how the things I said or did impacted others and my relationships. Stress management was not something I ever thought about, as I was unaware that I was so tightly wound I was ready to snap. I was going fast as possible, to get as much done as possible and that was clearly evident to everyone but me.
My sister had just completed Christy’s class. I was in a spot with my sons’ treatment where I didn’t know if he would live. Both my sister and Christy shared with me a few things about energy and breathwork that had a huge impact on my sons healing journey. I knew I needed to do this course, but I was financially strained, incredibly busy, full time plus employed, and a mother with a medically fragile child. The thought of taking time off work for self-development was ridiculous.
I followed my gut feeling that I needed to move forward regardless of the time and expense. I signed up and attended Christy’s level 1-2 classes. The results were life changing. Having a non-biased expert looking at my body language, my habits, the way I talked and the things I was wearing was intimidating but incredible. I was able to find out why I was the way I was, what my body was saying about my mental state. I was given real time feedback on what I could change and how. How I was coming across to others was not accurate and the transformation of that was one of the hardest spots to hold.
Even though internal evaluation was so tough, I felt supported the entire time. I had the opportunity-to heal many things from my childhood that were affecting me as an adult that I wasn’t even aware of prior to the class. I was able to mend relationships that I thought could never be mended. When I realized the things about me my body was clearly speaking, I had the opportunity to change them. As I worked through the process, being conscious of my body/mind connection and consciously begin living in my body vs in my mind, my whole life started to shift. Relationships started to shift. Work promotion, after work promotion fell into my hands and I am now looking into opportunities that I never imagined that I could achieve. I am so grateful to Christy and her program. The ability to step into the person I want to be has truly been a gift and life changing experience.
