My Emotional suffering was my wake up call.

I knew something was up with me. My body ached and I felt like I was on an emotional rollercoaster. I had a face full of Rosacea and I felt like a firecracker just about to go off.

I worked harder to keep my mind busy on my work and not on how I felt on the inside and sadly this lifestyle was what ground me down to seek help and start to heal.

My suffering showed up in the form of Rosacea. For others it might be back pain, digestive problems, insomnia, overeating, under eating, anxiety, depression, low-self esteem, low confidence. Or maybe just feeling ‘is this all there is to life’?

For me, my suffering was the reason for me embracing change. My face glowed red, and my body pain was unbearable. I felt so unsatisfied in all aspects of my life. Looking back, I was so out of tune with myself and how I wanted to live my life that my work success and popularity was the only thing getting me out of bed in the morning. A pretty rubbish way to live.

All my suffering was my bodies signals telling me I needed to take notice of myself. The body is a fascinating miracle that we all get to live in, in this lifetime. Life pressures can push us in to desensitising from trauma, past experiences or generally not giving a shit about ourselves and starts to show up for us in the shape of pain, illness, mind control or in my case Rosacea.

My wake up call was the start of a beautiful love affair with myself and the only remedy for my healing. Spending hours and years dedicating time to myself through yoga, breathing and writing was my cure. As time passed my Rosacea started to fade, my body pain began to ease. I became enthusiastic about living and felt the clarity of how I wanted to live my life became my driving force into fulfilling my dreams that I had stuffed away deep into my layers.

So you see my suffering showed me my route home. It was showing up in my body and on my face for a reason. To get to take action to reveal my truth and guide me back onto my path. Up-leveling my confidence and courage to own my Life.

Dedicating time to take notice of how you feel from the inside out is paramount to live a happy, healthy life.  We must make getting to know self a priority. Your body, your rented space for this lifetime is doing all it can to keep you living a balanced life and away from suffering. The symptoms that arise are your nudges and warning signs that something in you needs attention. They are prompting you to show up for yourself.

Take note and take action to heal release and live a happy, healthy, vibrant life.

I looking to talk to people like me who are suffering from Rosacea or any of the emotional trauma Rosacea can bring by offering a Free 60-minute call with no obligation at all. Why? because when I was suffering in my mid-twenties so few had even heard of Rosacea. Not like now the market is huge with products advertising Rosacea. Product ranges, creams it has become a money-making market as they pray on desperate people.

I really would have loved to find a person like me that had lived through it and is now sharing to help others. Just to talk about how I felt and how Rosacea made me feel would have been amazing. That is why I offer it. In fact, after just one call I have had people writing to me saying how much it helped them see Rosacea for what it truly is and was excited about there healing journey to taking back there life and fading there face.

If you would like to have a conversation with me? I would LOVE to hear from you.

    This resonates so much with me Jo, in was in so much emotional pain my body was screaming at me to stop and change my life. It wasn’t until my back went with two torn discs I was forced to stop. I made plans to leave and practise yoga when better but then worst thing happened my Mum died. I can’t get over her death. It has been 2.5 years and I feel my body hurting again but I feel too old (50) and too late to change now but I think I will try to go in Rishikesh for a month intensive yoga in hope it helps. I went to Goa last Nov but had an anxiety attack and left after three days, I was meant to go to a retreat then. I hope I find the strength.
    I was in Side and Antalya, Kas and Kalkan last May, I love Turkey. I will keep your retreat in mind next time I go that way.
    Best wishes
