Yesterday, March 28, 2014, I celebrated 1 year of being free of a heavy burden that I had carried for my mother for my whole life. Since that release, I have grown exponentially!

But, let me back up a bit...this major purge actually started about 10 years ago, when my instinctive, knowledgeable friend & massage therapist  (more of a massage 'doctor' to me), Tara Hedges Griffith (Body Sattva Therapies; Columbus, OH) was giving me a massage. I could sense that she felt I was holding back (something)...I didn't know what the tears symbolized then.

Five years later, my gifted and perceptive masseuse, artist friend, Jane Maru (MT), saw that I was holding onto something in my body during a session. We stopped and discussed who or what it might be. Since voicing it with her, the layers started to drop more quickly, because by voicing it...I actually created 'drainage process'...as I see it. It was no longer sealed air-tight within.

Then, 1 year ago yesterday, I really got to the nitty-gritty, when another highly-intuitive therapist,                   Shawnna Laymon 760-408-8016 (therapeuticbodyworksshawnna@gmail.com) in Yucca Valley was giving me a massage. Something just broke open in me and allowed me to let go of misdirected responsibility. I forgave long ago but still was carrying something that didn't belong to me. And Jane showed up (mystically) to encourage me.  My mother slid off my back, literally.

I am forever grateful to the Divine, my supportive husband & Sparky, friends & these therapists who helped liberate me. And now, March 28, 2013 is an extra birth date to celebrate!

If you are not having success, with talk therapy sessions, you may want to start with massage therapy.... as a means to figuring out a problem. Illness in the mind and emotions, eventually, finds a home in the physical.

I was prompted to share this last year but felt resistance at the time to be so open. But, one year later, I am braver and embracing boldness.  I am willing to 'bare all' because my story  just may help someone else to be liberated.
