Happy Tenth Anniversary, Blog!

I can’t believe this blog started ten years ago!! I wasn’t even 100% sure why I started it until I read something I wrote a long time ago. When Life’s A Journey Not A Guided Tour began (link to the first entry), it was because I wanted to share what I’d learned about raising a child with Sensory Processing Disorder: what helped and what didn’t. And just what SPD was. Back when my son was diagnosed in early 2005 the internet was still quite young and I doubt we had a fast internet connection yet. The speed of sharing and spread of information was just beginning to ramp up. And even my son’s pediatrician wasn’t very familiar with SPD.

When my preemie began to show signs of developmental delay, as his pediatrician recommended this screening or that, we dove in head first. Screenings and evaluations led to therapies that helped my Little Man progress.

Speech Delay and speech therapy led us to Sensory Processing Disorder and occupational therapy, and delays in multiple areas qualified Little Man for free special education preschool. And on it went, and still goes. These days, the gremlins we’re navigating are learning disabilities (dyslexia), ADHD that doesn’t respond to medication, and Anxiety that is responding somewhat to medication.

After beginning what I saw as a mommy blog, not even a year later I experienced a spiritual awakening. And my personal path took a sharp turn toward learning about Energy Healing (creating change from the inside out through accessing our subtle energy field). My life, when I wasn’t being mom or housewife, was full of learning about Energy Healing and connecting with intuition.

Six years later, after having many healing experiences and several metaphysical experiences, my life changed quite significantly when my consciousness went through a massive shift during a healing session. Ideal conditions were created for Kundalini energy to open up full-bore, initiating a Kundalini awakening that’s ongoing.

Thank you for riding along with me through all sorts of twists and turns of my life. For ten years of learning, of experiencing, of heartbreak and elation, and of complete surprises! Oh, and I almost forgot – photos!
