One family camping trip set a series of events in motion that would eventually change life, and myself, as I knew it. I hope my story will also change everything for you.
My wife, our children, dog and I took at trip to the mountains of Arizona for some much needed family time. Exhausted from our “exploration” hike, and even more tired from my perfection-driven and anxiety-ridden mind, I took a breather and gathered some wood for our campfire. You see, I wasn’t always who I am today. I was living in panic mode, trapped in my mental prison of fear, isolation, worry, and doubt. I couldn’t even enjoy time with my family because instead of being present in the moment, I was conjuring every possible scenario of what could go wrong – my vehicle breaking down, my dog running away, my children getting hurt or lost – does this sound familiar?
I took a moment and hunched over to release a sigh of distress. In that exact moment, I looked up and saw a brilliant light, the kind of light that blinds you when driving on a winters day. You know when you can’t see because the sun is reflecting off your windshield, that blinding light? That’s all I saw in front me, my senses failed, my heart was weak, and I felt like I was gonna pass out. I could hear my kids laughing and I also heard a voice calling one of their names. All of a sudden, the sound of the forest around me, all I felt was, “I can stay or go.”
I call that day “my awakening.”
That day changed me and even as I continued to live my normal routine of going into work, coming home and doing it all over again, I was burning to discover more about myself, my truth. My truth is love and how it connects us all. As I continued searching for myself, Reiki found me. I know the power of Reiki because it changed my world and now I want it to change yours, and that’s why I founded Hug Your Roots (TM). Healing; a continuous process in life, Understanding; understanding is knowledge and knowledge is power, and Gratitude; appreciation of being a part of something bigger than YOU (greatness), because it’s not about you, it’s about US. Your roots are your foundation, it’s who you are. We have to nurture our roots so we can nurture the roots of others. A tree with an unhealthy root system uproots during a wind storm, so let’s allow the storms to pass. Storms are always swirling in our lives, our businesses, our minds, our emotions, and even our bodies, but blue skies are always above. Keep your vibe high, get higher.
