The Heroine's Journey:
In my quest to heal Lyme disease,
I discovered who I Am"
My HEROINE"S JOURNEY began with a not so ordinary life. Abuse and trauma began at a very young age. Obsessive compulsive behaviors became a mechanism to find comfort in an unstable world with a single parent and three siblings. Growing up in an environment feeling unworthy and unloved led to searching for worth and love and truth my whole life.
Somewhere along the path of 50 years, I became a wife (twice) and mother of three beautiful children. I went back to school and then became an elementary school teacher. But memories still haunted me. Those memories were validated on July 4, 2011 when my fiancé wrenched the engagement ring off my finger and left me. "YOU'RE NOT ENOUGH" slapped me in the face for the last time. And then within the hour, I got what author Joseph Campbell refers to as, "the call to adventure" ... my son was in a motorcycle accident... and that began a period of time where month after month I was faced with trials and tribulations... and wanting to die.
I crossed the threshold of what I could handle. I was taken to a "special world'... a spiritual world... where mediums and psychics began mentoring me to support me through this dark night of the soul. Lily Dale... a tiny spiritual community in western New York.
There is an unseen World that is always present. That spiritual world speaks to us through our own gut feeling and intuition. I began developing that intuition. I was beginning to understand the World on a whole new level! I began learning about ancient teachings from around the World. I read books by Wayne Dyer, Louise Hay, Greg Braden, Bruce Lipton, Neale Donald Walsch, Masuru Emoto and Neville Goddard. I read pieces of literature from all around the world.
July 2013, "HE HAS A DISEASE!" I spat out.
"What? I have Lyme disease??? What is that??? Oh... so much pain.
More trials and tribulations... the spiritual people I have met don't seem so "spiritual" to me... where do I belong?
The approach to the inner most cave... I had a mini stroke?
And my ex fiancé' was in the Emergency Room on the exact same day, at the exact same time I was there? Why?
The supreme ordeal... there is nothing to fear but fear itself. I AM important. I MATTER! My health is important. I am going to Hawaii on a healing journey for the summer to get my life back and heal. So, why is my employer trying to fire me??
June 2017, on the Big Island, I die and go to heaven... and an angel tells me I have a choice; I can continue to cross over or return to Earth. And then a voice reminds me, "your children need you. They need to know."
Maui, Dr. T... you are my Earth angel.
It's time for me to defeat the enemy... And how? I put into practice all that I learned. I receive the reward.... I got my health back! I have transformed! I am an alchemist! I AM the HEROINE of my life!!
The return.... I don't want to go back to New York. I found heaven on Earth. I got my life back! I found.... love. But I go back to my home in New York and to my job as an elementary school teacher. I am relocated to a storage room at the administration building the first week of school. I am told to not speak with anyone. I am told not to leave the room unless to use the bathroom or eat lunch. WHAT????
I am healthy!!! I got my life back!!! I am strong again!!! WHY???? What did I do wrong????
I overcame Lyme disease, a mini stroke, and death? Want to know how and WhY I was pushed out of my classroom and my career of eighteen years as an elementary school teacher... why?
Not even a heart attack can take away my life if I'm not ready to go. Justice will be served... one day. God, Source, Creator... has my back.
I am the HEROINE of my life!
I have succeeded!
I have changed!
I have a new life!
I AM healthy!
I Am a teacher!
I AM the creator of my life!
I create each day of my life!
I have proof of the journey!
I AM the HEROINE!
