I began using food to self soothe at the early age of 7. I used food to avoid feeling the weight of discomfort I experienced as a sensitive soul.
As a young girl, I was looking for the unconditional love of the Mother through food. I was starving for connection, warmth and embodiment. I didn’t realize I was only moving further away from my deepest desire as I numbed my feelings with food.
By the age of 17 I weighed almost 300 pounds. I was wildly disembodied yet wildly in my body at the same time. I believe my pain revealed itself through my weight.
I went through a weight loss journey going into my college years. I lost 140 pounds quickly all through exercise and shifting my diet. The weight loss journey was empowering, yet I never truly developed self love or a strong connection to my body. Eventually the journey spiraled into over exercising and under eating. At the time, I was really feeding off of the attention I was getting from being thin.
I have experienced both extremes.
I had a spiritual awakening in 2012. I saw my soul through a large mirror and made a vow to myself that I would truly begin NOURISHING my body from a place of love. (THIS is why I say your healing is the doorway to your awakening!)
I woke up and went on a journey of healing.
I studied Ayurveda, Holistic Nutrition, Somatic Psychology + dove deep into my own body, mind and soul.
It became my mission to serve other Women along the healing process to discover their own medicine, nourishment + soul.
