It's an amazing life, don't waste it, come find yourself, follow your dreams and live a Magical one.
I'm italian, was born in a small town called Rogilano in Calabria, my parents emigrated here when I was 3 years old and Maidenhead is where I grew up and have lived all my life so far! I never really fitted in anywhere when I was growing up, didn’t have many friends and found it difficult to connect with people. I was extremely shy. From an early age I was very empathic and would pick up energies from people and places around me, I would see and hear spirit but as I didn’t know what was happening I was fearful and didn’t like being left alone at home.
To cut a long story short It wasn’t until the birth of my baby boy that my life started to change. The epidural went terribly wrong, I really thought I was going to die. Coming home from hospital I discover that I now needed to have a back operation as I had a slipped disc. My physical and mental health went from bad to worse, I was in constant pain, I was so sad although I had a beautiful baby boy and a 4 year old daughter.
6 months down the line I had the back operation, moved in with my parents so I could get the help I needed, and start my journey to recovery.
I had a lot of time to think about my life I kept asking....
What is missing in my life?
Why don’t I feel complete?
Why don’t I feel Loved?
Why don’t I fit in?
I remember asking for help but didn’t really know what help I needed. I just wanted to feel well and happy. Help came in the form of a French lady who was full of energy and smiles. I had my first Reiki session with her, didn't know what Reiki was I just knew I had to try it.
My life changed from that one session. Yes its true. I had quite a few sessions and eventually this “crazy” beautiful lady pieced me back together. I decided to learn Reiki as it had helped me so much, what I hadn't realised then was the power of energy and thought! within the year I found the courage and strength to leave my unhappy marriage behind and move on to a new life on my own as a single parent, with the help of my parents who were struggling with the whole idea of “divorce”! I stated to make a new life for myself. I trained in Massage, Reflexology and became a Reiki Master. I started to use Reiki with all the treatments I did and soon started working with a great team in spirit. Learning to use and trust my intuition more, my work became magical.
I made the change, my world changed dramatically and the people around me changed.
I'm not going to say it was easy. It wasn’t but once I had set my intention to creating a happier life it was like a snowball effect, the universe sorted the rest out. Lots of tough lessons and learnings along the way, but I was happy and I was free becoming the person I was always meant to be.
When I finally felt in a good place I decided to try manifesting LOVE and that arrived too in the form of a wonderful man, teacher, my best friend. We have been together now 11 years.
I continued to have great results with my clients, but I soon noticed that there was more I needed to learn. I could take my clients to a certain point in their healing but no further. There was a piece of the jigsaw puzzle missing. So, I asked for help and went on a quest to find it. The quest took two years, until I finally found Shamanic healing. The most powerful and complete healing system. I had found the healing tools that were missing. The training was tough, long and the hardest thing I have done so far. I did three years of deep self-healing. My teacher would always say.
“you can’t take a client somewhere you haven’t been to yourself”
I was invited to join the Medicine Wheel Team for the last year of my studies and this is when I found my love and passion for teaching, where I finally found my voice and my confidence.
Today I hold workshops, Active Meditations and have client’s here and abroad. I feel happy, content and loved. I still have lessons the difference is now I am more aware and have tools to help me navigate through life.
Anyone can change, all you need to do is set your intention and allow the Universe to send you what you need. I hope my story inspires you to take that first step to change.
