When I landed in Greece for 5 weeks in July 2016, I didn't really know this was going to happen, and I am not sure I thought I would be at the place I am at the moment; in fact I know I didn't know it!
As I settled in the room which was to become home for the few weeks I was there, I sat down on the bed and over three days it just came from out from my Soul...
It was if my Soul needed to let out all the pain and trauma that had been locked away for many many years.
I started on paper and wrote everything single detail down and I kept telling myself this is for me, no one else will see this, all the crap came out and I knew it was safe to let it out.

This is my story, trying to piece together and heal an event that happened to me many years ago. By stepping back and viewing from the outside looking in you can see more but that is easy to do when you are not in it, feeling that raw emotion!
I truly believe the way to fully heal is and feel complete is to go in deep and feel that emotion; by ignoring it or pretending it didn't happen is like putting a plaster over a wound and hoping it will heal.
We live in a Theta state which is a hypnotic state for the first 7 to 8 years of our lives, this is why it is crucial you pay attention to the words you use with your children.
Now is the time to heal the wounds - it doesn't have to be painful and it is so empowering.
