It was then that I began the journey of healing myself.
During my graduate school education, I began to tap into a vision for myself I had not understood previously. I COULD change. I COULD put my mind to something and do the work. From 2013 until 2015 I lost 60+ pounds through changing my eating habits and exercise. Yet, it wasn’t until 2015 after gaining 30 or so pounds back during my last semester of school, that I realized something in my journey was missing. I hadn’t integrated my fitness into a sustainable lifestyle. Yes, I lost the weight, without a group, without a personal trainer, and without much support minus a few friends along the way. I had put in the work. Yet, what I had missed while focusing on my Body, was my Soul. I wasn’t doing the Soul-work, and that left me feeling depleted.
This led me to a place of self-discovery at the end of 2015. It was then that I embarked on my journey of post-graduate studies, training, and personal development in African Indigenous Knowledge Systems. I first began and continue with a life of self-healing from womb trauma, Adverse Childhood Experiences, food addiction, weight loss obsession and anxiety, allergies, sexual trauma, Spiritual disconnection, and more.
