With a warm heart I welcome in 2016. 

The year 2015 was a year filled with change and challenges for me. I founded Chrysalis Healing & Coaching in the spring. A time for new beginnings for me and with enthusiasm I embraced the challenges of owning a business.

Along with those challenges 2015 also brought some personal challenges from my past that I had not completely dealt with.

For the first time in my life I was in severe physical pain.  I could barely walk the pain in my left hip and leg was so extreme.   The x-ray revealed arthritis, bursitis and tendonitis in my left hip and leg.  

The root cause of the symptoms - my deep hidden emotions from my past abuse had manifested into the physical and gotten into my bones.  I could no longer hide my anger, pain and shame.  The time had finally come to deal with the past abuse and my lack of self love.  

I decided to attack the deep pain from a variety of therapies so the pain would no longer have a place to hide. I underwent a combination of treatments- Reiki for both the physical and emotional, physiotherapy, acupuncture, shaman healing circles, journaling, art therapy, along with a major change in diet and lifestyle.

The result I feel so much better.  I am healing from the core inside to the outside. I am ready and willing to move forward with my life, 2016 Here I come!!!
