My personal story of Freedom from an eating disorder.
I have been on a journey that has brought me to my knees and taken me to the highest peaks. I’ve always had a love/ hate relationship with food. I either deprived myself of it; or gorged in it. I suffered for years with anorexia and bulimia and felt as though this was my life sentence.
Every time I looked in the mirror I was disgusted at who was staring back at me. I wanted things to change, but change seemed like a fairytale to me.
It took years of conventional therapies to recognize why I was punishing myself with food. But finding out the whys, never gave me the tools to change.
I remember the day that my whole life transformed and everything became Crystal clear. I went to a local bookstore and a book called, “Infinite Love & Gratitude” fell off the shelf onto my lap. I took it as a sign, purchased the book and read it from front to back in one day. When I read, tears streamed down my face. I felt this wave of peace come over me knowing that I wasn’t broken, nor did I need to be fixed. I was reacting to life rather than creating it. I knew I had to learn more and that this was my ticket to freedom.
The next thing I knew I was on a plane to Chicago to meet the most beautiful loving soul I have ever crossed paths with, Dr. Darren Weissman. I was the first to raise my hand at the conference for a lifeline session in front 50 people. I bared my soul; I let it all out so that I could free myself of the years of guilt, shame, and remorse. A miracle occurred that day. I left knowing the truth; I was a brilliant, radiant light who was pure, whole and complete.
I came home and no longer needed to stuff my face with food. I saw it for what it was, nourishment.
I continued my monthly trips to Chicago to become a Certified LifeLine Practitioner and have been helping women love who they are from the inside out ever since.
I know what it is like to be on your knees praying, hoping, and wishing for something to change. Feeling like you just can’t-do another day this way. I know now that there is hope. I know because I have walked down the path and have found my FREEDOM.
