How this 90 day M I N D F U L L N E S S course came to be:
I created this course to heal my own open childhood wound that caused an underlying, unconscious defensive way of living, with negative belief pattern that would activate themselves, because I had “wired” it that way over thirty years ago.
As a single mom with a warm-hearted daughter, I felt despair, because I was unable to find genuine peace in our relationship. It was as if I was two people.. a wise shaman, free spirited, confident and successful.. and when my daughter made a mistake, without being able to control it, I became an irritated, nagging, lost person, stuck in quicksand. My daughter has dislexia, inherited from her father, but I didn’t know such a mental incapacity existed, so daily, she avoided doing her homework, leading to lying, cheating in every possible way and I took it personal. In my weak moments, I was convinced she was out to hurt me consciously, even though she was the sweetest girl filled with wonderful intentions. Still, since we have a lot of love for each other, daily, we regained some balance doing something fun together, week after week, year after year, we pulled it off. And I justified our ups and downs as “normal for a single mom with a growing up youngster”. But when I realized my daughter had dislexia, I started to see the imbalance I was having.. she was constant in her kindness to me and I still reacted out of proportion when she made a mistake..I started to admit, I was unreliable and unstable..point! And she deserved more, not just a parent, she deserved a friend at home. She had earned it. But how to get better? You see, the quicksand in my weak moments was located in a labyrinth, rooted deep inside of me and no matter how hard I tried, I didn’t seem to have access to those involuntary emotional reactions. Guided by my intuition, in need to know the brain better, I took a university course in neuroscience and emotional intelligence and I realized three life changing things:
1.. my amygdala connectivity and size was out of proportion, the frontal cortex was under-activated, creating anxiety and anger..
2.. we have plasticity in our brain that gives us the opportunity to heal any damage done.
3.. we have several “feel good hormonal connections” and we can manage them.
First off, I admitted to having anxiety and that was the most challenging first step to take.
Accumulating everything I was channeled in self healing, mindfulness and meditations during thirty years I placed it in one folder and I designed a “self rescue course”, which I made some adjustments to before sharing it with you now.
Armed with universal knowledge and scientific proof I threw myself of the cliff, convinced my wings would grow back.. I started the course.. day one of a new beginning. But soon I realized it wasn’t all about wings and free space.. it was dark and scary.. it was more “the 90th day and counting downward”.
The first weeks were extremely tough, but knowing I needed to do this.. I comprehend why it was so hard since our brain is resistant to change and my old habits came to the surface more often than not.. more so when I was tired or had taken sugar.. but I didn’t give up.. I stayed as loyal and flexible as I could be to my own program I was designing daily as I experienced the need for it.. after one month I had each time more and more time between negative reactions and I became more self aware. I saw it coming then and could breathe through it, accepting the cycle “feeling aggravated, irritated, disappointed and lost” and making it shorter each time. After six weeks, I could observe life with a lighter heart, even though daily life challenges appeared, into which, before, I would have created a drama that could have easily become a soap serie for my brain.. in the new version of me, I let it pass by, instead of storing it. Like a rock in a branding I took it and I became smoother. Next thing is that I no longer wish to participate in anything negative, observe “things” and became even more spiritually oriented and that was a very home coming feeling.
After day 90.. With my smile reaching my eyes again, I can now count that my future is guaranteed to be successful. I feel free and worthy of it.
