I almost gave up...

Oct 08, 2020

Hello, it’s Filly here! I often share about my own personal healing story.

The thing is, it wasn’t all smooth sailing. I remember the first few months into healing my stressed out adrenal glands, I was starting to see some improvements. I was diligently taking my nutraceutical supplements, I was eating all the foods to support my adrenals, I cut back on high intensity exercise, I was doing my breathing exercises, and I was going to bed on time.

The problem was…I still had Rushing Woman’s Syndrome. I was still running around like a chook without it’s head, doing waaaaay too much. I was doing-doing-doing, from the moment I woke up, to the moment I went to bed. I even became a bit obsessed and regimented with my eating, taking supplements and bed time. I got angry when others didn’t ‘obey’ what I was doing.

It wasn’t until my young daughter said to me: “Mummy, why are you always so angry all the time? Why don’t you ever smile?”

I was shocked that she had said this, because I *thought* I had made some progress mentally and physically. I thought I was a bit less anxious, and a bit happier.

It was then that I realised that I could be so much better…IF I worked on those big things that were likely causing me to feel ‘sick’ in the first place. 

It was really hard to change - to even want to change - my in-grained type-A, perfectionist, ‘do-er’ personality. I almost got to the point where I almost gave up even continuing with my healing work. But the need to feel calmness again, to feel true happiness, to have a connected family - pulled me out of my stubborn mindset.

I started looking at what I could ‘let go.’ What was I doing that was unnecessary? How could I change my schedule so I wasn’t Rushing all the time? How could I change my mindset?

Luckily I kept up my healing work, and made the changes that I needed to. My testimony that I had healed came a year or so later when I was down at the beach with my two little girls. My oldest came up to me and gave me a hug and said: 

“Mummy, you’re so kind now. You used to not be a very nice Mummy, but now you’re so kind.”

HEART EXPLOSION!!! Doing the hard-work. Making the changes. Was so worth it, even for that little comment from my daughter.

The system I used to heal, is now the system we share with our clients. It has literally changed my life (and many others lives too!)... both physically and emotionally!
