Transformation of Eli - LOVE in Action, Vanessa Goldeen 2015
Upon reflection of the why I am setting about to do the work I am doing in this field of health and healing where there appears to be so many voices one could listen to....what do I have to say that's different, new or supremely useful?
Meditating on these questions has given me the opportunity to clarify my purpose. Which I can sum up in one word.....
It is my belief that I have arrived at a certain wisdom founded in love that is useful to others. It is my heart felt intention to share this wisdom whether esoteric or practical in application to help meet the needs who are trying to find their way through the maze of chronic illness.
I myself have experienced being down the rabbit hole of chronic illness in my life. Through the circumstances of my life I have been led, in part by necessity to choose to find my own way out of that hole. I was young, on my own and did not insurance for health care, which meant seeing doctors was out. Additionally I had had so many negative experiences with MD's who simply were not listening to me or could not admit they had no answers, so I just stop going in that direction.
Being a little Hippy Girl, I was already turned onto whole foods and detoxing. This gave me a foundation to expand my knowledge beyond support through food, to herbs and other healing modalities. I avidly studied Chinese Medicine, Ayurveda, Louise Hay, the famous 12 Steps and more. I explored health and wellness through every avenue I could find!
I began early on to understand that folks who become ill usually have a crisis of sorts proceeding their decline. It may have been dramatic or subtle. A broken heart, a stressful work of home situation. Happiness falling into your lap as it did in my case.
I suffered a major set back within weeks of marrying my husband and love of my life, David. With all the layers of heartache and trauma I had experienced in my life previous to this, my body literally could not contain the joy! Mold found me and took me down. For the second time in my life I was back in the rabbit hole after having gotten myself out once before. Initially it took awhile to narrow down what was happening, but through prayer and perseverance it became clear I was reacting to high levels of mold on the Central Coast of CA. I'll post that story later in an upcoming Mold Recovery Post!
Over the past 20 years I have been able to pull together all my research, wisdom and experience into what I believe are key foundational requirements for anyone with chronic illness to move toward recovery. These components take into account the "whole person" and reach into every corner of your heart to help you find the courage to ask for and find the help you need.
It is my sincerest desire to share this wisdom with others, because I have learned that LOVE never fails! When you are willing to make changes, stick to protocols, learn the think in a new way in your heart and have faith to believe that what has gone awry can be reversed and that health and happiness can be restored, that's LOVE and Faith in action!
