Dear Reader,

Here is my story;

I have studied the Law Of Attraction for 12 years as part of a self healing process. Using the tools of positivity and manifestation I healed my health, wealth and wellbeing.

I went from a life of debt, pain and suffering to living a life of abundance. I now live the life of my dreams, living a low impact lifestyle, with my beautiful partner and best friend, on our own land, a Permaculture Project, surrounded by our animals which is something I manifested a few years ago.

It has been my life goal to help others help themselves. A few years ago I created a hub on Self Help By The Spoonful to begin doing just that!

I believe that everyone has the power and ability to change, to turn their life around and return to their natural state of peace and happiness where they can live their dreams.

When Reiki came into my life, I was trying to recover from a stroke. I had just lost my dream job and was physically and mentally in a bad way, I also lost my sight not long after the stroke. Reiki helped me to heal myself.

In 3 years, I have healed my mind, my body and reignited my spirit using a combination of techniques I had studied. I can now see, read, write and draw. I can walk. I can run. I can drive.

I wanted to teach others the tools I had discovered to help them heal themselves.

I studied so many things, Aromatherapy, Assertiveness, Body Language, Body Scans, CBT, Coaching, Conflict Management, Crystals, EFT, Ho'oponopono, Innsaei,  Law Of Attraction, Meditation, Mindfulness, Neurochemistry,  Reiki, Religion, Sacred Freedom Protocol, Service To Others, Shamanism, Spirituality, Visualisation, Yoga, to name a few.

I have many other qualifications and had so much more training which empowered me to self-heal. We humans are so powerful. We hold the key to creating the life we deserve.

It would be an honour for me to join you and support you in your healing journey, as Ram Dass says " we are all just walking one another home"

Much love

Mama Bear
