Psst. Don’t hide your woo-woo. Own it! (Here’s why)
Sooo. I was at brunch and having this conversation with a new friend. I was talking about something in my past and then I just said welll. My energy changed if you know what I mean, (hoping she did) and I realized I had been attracting the wrong people, the wrong situations and the wrong experiences. And I kind of held my breath after saying that to see if she nodded or looked at me like WTF? Why the face of course.
I asked her if she knew what WOO-WOO meant. Hahahaha. And also my people, why do we even call it that? “Woo, also called woo-woo, is a term for pseudoscientific explanations that share certain common characteristics, often being too good to be true (aside from being unscientific). The term is common among skeptical writers. Woo is understood specifically as dressing itself in the trappings of science (but not the substance) while involving unscientific concepts, such as anecdotal evidence and sciencey-sounding words.” <, umm what did I just read RationalWiki?
So here’s the thing guys. If you have been with me since 2011, and maybe you haven’t, but if you have, you know I was very ill for a long time. I do not care if you can’t science why I am better away. So therefore, I guess it’s anecdotal evidence…but it’s real so it’s not anecdotal to me. Make sense?
The before me was angry, bitter, in loads of pain 24/7 and was a very broken person (spiritually, physically, and oh yeah monetarily). I focused on all the wrong things, but I was doing what I was told by my doctors (which honestly wasn’t much of anything). I was told by my doctors that I wouldn’t get better. I would be in pain. I would always need pints of my blood taken. My stomach was a mess and would cause IBS, glare-ups and more. I was diagnosed with Hereditary Hemochromatosis, Porphyria Cutanea Tarda, Hashimoto’s Thyroid, fibromyalgia, MTHFR gene mutation, secondary depression and chronic fatigue ( as well as constant pints of my blood taken had made me anemic). Anyway, so yeah. It wasn’t looking happy-happy joy-joy.
I bought a tiny book sometime in 2012 >> to read later and share << and I referenced it again here >> PIN this for later << the quote on that will either liberate you or piss you off depending on where you are in your journey, and I decided that I was freaking done (at least I tried to decide that, but then my body failed me, my joints in my body went out and I would wind up not being to move well and cry daily for a bit because it hurt so much to move I didn’t sleep for a year and my husband could do nothing at all to help, and I thought my life was over). << but that is not where we are in this story.
So anyway, after angry bitter me pushed everyone away, I sat on the couch and asked for a sign. I do not care what you believe in, your beliefs are your own, woo-woo doesn’t mean you have to give that up, but anyway things started happening. A new holistic person came into my life. I started back to yoga again even though I had given it up. I then was asked if I wanted to become yoga teacher certified, and I said I did. During that brief 6 month journey, I started thinking about the positive, and my little book and how much difference being positive made in my life. I started my OWN style of journal therapy and that’s when things got really crazy.
I was offered free travel after writing it down and believing it really could happen. I was asked to speak in London. I cleared debt that had been hanging around like a lead balloon. Not a little. Over $15,000. Seriously.
I bought a new car, and more. All because I changed my energy, and I believed I was worthy of a different life. I didn’t know why I was given the path before, but I knew I wanted to take a different one. At first, all the positive thinking was nice, but I wasn’t sure how that would work in making a difference physically as well…until I started seeing it with my own eyes.
I knew that I had always been slightly different and felt the energy of others very strongly. I knew when they lied. I knew when they were being manipulative…and I wanted to believe in the good in people…and that sometimes led to me overextending myself and my good nature. When I started to really look at the energy of people, situations, beliefs and what was draining me, my life got better. Not just a little bit better, but miraculously better.
HUNDREDS of people started messaging me on my personal account. No joke. I would get messages like “How did you lose that weight?” “How are you able to do yoga now and what did you do?” And it goes on and on. I didn’t have a system back then designed to handle the questions, but I would help as best I could. Since I retired as a school teacher, teachers would message me and tell me how miserable they were at work and how they could feel the building sucking the life out of them. Teachers that everyone loved and would have been surprised asked me about how I left (I had no plan in place, I literally said the job was killing me and left).
I could NOT always explain WHY I did things >> The Knowing << and how I explained it is here, but I just KNEW I had to leave. I knew I was not going to get better and it was a very hard decision to make, but I am so glad I followed my gut.
In the end, if I had not followed my gut, I wouldn’t have been able to help as many people as I have. I wouldn’t have been able to start a whole new life, while not claiming my diseases anymore even though I still technically have them as 3 are genetic. Embracing my inner guidance system gave me the very BEST chance at changing my life and you can call it what you will…it works.
Highly sensitive to energy? Own it. Listening to your spirit-guides or whatever you want to call it? That’s great. Invite them to have a party. If it works, don’t judge it or analyze it. If things aren’t working for you and you want to learn more about what I do and how I guide my clients, come grab a month in my Club (stay as long as you wish) BUT this month is really kicking as I am offering them a sneak peek at a new thang I am making just for the woo inclined. >> Check out what others are saying here <<
This is all great information Aimee. WOOO-WOO.
