Time to share my own transformation.
Let me begin by stating that it doesn’t come easy to share something so personal publicly but at the same time I am dedicated to be completely transparent about my own journey, and my former struggles, and to offer as much guidance as I can through my blog and coaching services (although, as a disclaimer, none of what I share with your based on my own experience should be used as a substitute to a medical advice). In addition, the mission of my platform is to show that vulnerability is the first step to healing. When we begin to perceive our low points with more compassion, and less shame, we then realize that eating disorders/body dysmorphia/ binge eating/alcoholism, imbalanced hormones, low (or extreme) libido and severe stress are just a symptom of a deeper issue…. a lack of self-love, safety and life purpose.
I strongly believe that social media can be a powerful tool for bringing more social awareness about the significant amount of young people battling eating disorders, depression and addictions. I was one of them!
And I am a success story!
We are never victims of our circumstances. We are warriors who need the extra push and courage to show up for ourselves and win our battle.
Long story short, during puberty (around my parents’ divorce) I developed body dysmorphia and disordered eating that soon escalated to depression, very low confidence, skin issues, loss of my menstrual cycle (for three years), lack of sexual drive, fear of commitment, ongoing feelings of unworthiness and “not being enough”, constant excuses not to follow my dreams, an an overall dragging sense of being a victim of my past. It took me more than ten years to reach a bottom level of exhaustion, adrenal fatigue and self-fulfilled prophecies that I wasn’t worthy of love, success and happiness. While, during this whole time, still wearing the facade of “I am fine” and “I am too self-conscious to talk about it”….
THEN, ONE DAY, I AWOKE TO MY TRUTH AND AUTHENTICITY. My life changed completely!
Five years ago I was first exposed to the healing properties of journaling, mindful eating, dance therapy and meditation. And my whole life transformed. I started to let go of all limiting beliefs about myself, and my body. To realize that we, in fact, are not our bodies! We are all beautiful souls equally worthy and capable of attracting love, happiness and success…. just by being authentic, practicing self-love and compassion to other beings, feeding our cells with proper nutrition and distressing our mind with meditation. Recent studies in neuroscience clearly show that our mind is constantly creating entirely new pathways… You can always change your beliefs, rewrite your story, and let go of the past! Took me a couple of years to fearlessly dive within, to develop my own practice, and to confidently step in the shoes of a health, life and meditation coach. And now I am so grateful for all of those past experiences. They were a blessing which helped me see the light!
I am here to be your guide… and to show you that it can be done! You can transform your life!!!❤️
With Love and Care,
