Several years ago, I had a miscarriage. Then I had 4 more after that. Its interesting how the experience of losing a child you’ve never met, can change your life. For years, my constant companions were anxiety, shame, low self-esteem and an underlying inner sadness.
I also had to come to terms that I would never be a mom. For my husband and I, there would be no rainbow babies, we didn’t have the resources for IVF or to pay adoption fees. I desperately wanted to feel a deep sense of peace and it was through this experience that my spiritual awakening began.
I realized how important it was to fully grieve the loss of my babies; even after so many years had passed! I began to search for what felt right for me. From journaling my deep grief to reiki. Reconnecting with my love of nature to creating both ritual and ceremony to honor my experience and my beautiful spirit baby, Bodhi Sean.
I now honor this experience as a rite of passage and have learned to cultivate a deep connection to what is sacred to me. As a ReikI master/teacher, meditation teacher, women’s circle facilitator and sacred ceremonialist, I offer holistic grief support to women on their healing journey.
