I’m vulnerably sharing what really happened post-surgery
Exactly 3 months ago today, it was the day after my emergency surgery for a broken clavicle. From the ‘accident’ on July 26th to those 10 days waiting, it was the most painful and challenging moment of my life. Up until that point, I never had surgery and I never broke a bone. Real talk: I didn’t recognise myself physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.
And just when I didn’t think it could get any more difficult, that day after surgery I was literally fighting for my breath. The nurses said it was stress and anxiety, proceeding to top up my anti-stress & anti-pain IV, but I knew something wasn’t right. All those years practicing yoga & breathwork were whispering to me that I knew my body and myself best.
They wheeled me to have an chest x-ray but I nearly fainted, so instead, after resting in my room for an hour or so, they had me lie down for a CT scan.
It turned out my left lung had filled with blood which required me to do another emergency procedure. Again not my first choice, I was done being cut open – poked and prodded. But it being summer in Spain with one thorax specialist available and in the middle of COVID, the choice had been made for me. I was moved by ambulance to another hospital for an additional procedure to drain the blood. I was released 3 days later once my left lung was clear.
When I finally came home August 9th most of the pain had subsided, but the discomfort was still real…and the ability to “do” like I used to were no longer available to me. The Universe was giving me a big lesson of slowing down even more, to lean more into my Feminine and ALLOW myself to be supported in ways I never had been before – by my husband, family, friends, peers, mentors, coaches and even my community.
And at the same time the Universe was giving me huge healing and blessings as I allowed myself to RECEIVE love and support. This terribly painful experience not only convinced me more how powerful and transformative this work is, but also how much more I am committed to getting this message and medicine out in the world.
I share this story because I AM alive and know that I am here to live to tell the power of this work.
Hand over heart, I would not be where I am today, able to hold space in five days for my biggest event of the year, had it not been for the practices and teachings that I share with my client and in my events.
I don’t just preach. I really do practice what I preach.
I also know that being connected to something bigger than myself and being pulled by a vision is the very thing that deeply motivated me to keep going and trust the process.
I’ve heard the writing on my soul and I know my purpose.
If you’re a woman I want this for you too.
I want you to get to the other side of your pain and heartache, and finally feel empowered so that you know and trust life is happening FOR you, not to you.
You may not have my exact story, but if you’re a woman (or know one) that had a challenging year and could use some connection so that you can rise to step deeper into your purpose & pleasure-filled life, then I highly encourage you to join me. Come experience for yourself the power of this work and the power of sisterhood.
We start Thursday 11-11 for my biggest event of the year, a FREE 5-Day Masterclass.
