I hated my SVT.
I lived in such fear of it.
Every day, all day.
It was all I thought about.
I was crippled from the anticipatory anxiety of a looming episode.
I didn’t want to leave the house, didn’t want to travel, and I didn’t want to be alone with my kids. My mind was constantly thinking about all the worst case scenarios and I spent a lot of time feeling sorry for myself and scaring myself.
I didn’t feel well and I longed for relief, but was in a vicious cycle…
I would eat things to help me forget my troubles and feel momentary relief, but feeling better was short lived, as it always resulted in the same thing…beating myself up for eating something unhealthy and then feeling physically worse.
And then there was the worry. I worried I would have an SVT almost as a punishment for eating something “bad”. Then came the promises to myself that I would eat healthier tomorrow
…I knew that I couldn’t keep my promises. I just didn’t have the energy that I needed to take
better care of myself.
I was STUCK. I was on a hamster wheel. I felt sick and exhausted all the time.
I wasn’t just upset over my SVT. I was upset over a lot of things in my life. And although I worked on
myself…every day…I journaled, went to acupuncture, enjoyed reading transformational books, analyzed
my life… it didn’t feel like it was all adding up to what I yearned for. If I really let myself look at the
“Truth”, I felt helpless to change any of the real things that I knew were eating away at me in my life and
also compounding the situation.
Healing…is a way of being. It’s not something that “occurs” and then just exists in your life. Healing is a
process of making healthy choices for yourself and your life every single day, every hour, every minute.
Healing is a process. It is a choice. It is a hard choice. True healing means looking at painful things and
learning how to let go, process, re-parent yourself, change behaviors, change your diet, face what stops
you, embrace yourself, love yourself as you are right now with all your “defects” and make new
commitments that seem scary.
As I reflect back now, on my journey of healing, I can find a few things that helped lead me out of my
misery and find the health that I experience today.
Here are 3 things that helped me get UNSTUCK…
1. COMMITMENT-I stayed the course. I kept at it. I kept working hard or as hard as I could at the moment, even though I didn’t always feel immediate relief or see evidence that my work was paying off. I did all of that work TRUSTING that if I did, and if I kept at it, I would feel better. I just kept taking steps in what I thought was the right direction. I was like a soldier.
2. TRUTH-I started telling the truth. To myself and to others. Even when it wasn’t pretty and I didn’t want to.
3. -TRUST-I trusted. I trusted that the small changes would eventually add up to a big change. I trusted that if I did the “work” that I would eventually feel better. I trusted that one day the health, wealth, vitality and happiness that I dreamed about would be mine. I trusted that God had a bigger plan for me than to feel sick and miserable in my house every day. I trusted that one day I would figure out my purpose and how to live the life I dreamt about.
Today, my life is so different than it was back then…
I feel healthy. I never worry about SVT. I never have SVT. I recommit to my health and my values every single day to stay on course. I changed careers to reflect the things that I wanted to discuss and spend my time on everyday.
Because my life is so drastically different, and because I have changed my career as one of the many
aspects of my life to reflect my commitment, truth and trust, I now spend my time coaching and creating material for
people who felt as awful and confused as I used to feel.
I LOVE helping people get UNSTUCK and find the path to freedom and healing.
If your SVT is making you miserable, I PROMISE you that it doesn’t have to be like this forever. There are
things that you can do to help yourself. If you want, you can start reflecting on the qualities that I
mentioned that worked for me; Commitment, Truth and Trust.
- What am I committed to?
- Do I tell my truth?
- Do I trust my path?
- Do I have a relationship with a higher source?
- Do I trust that my life has a purpose?
- Do I know my purpose?
As you ponder those questions, I also want to let you know that my first resource for you is ready.
I wrote the exact e-guide that I WISH existed when I was at the beginning of my SVT journey.
The Indispensable Guide to Navigating SVT: What you need to know to start your journey of healing.
This guide is for people who want clarity around their SVT. What is causing it, where to look for ways to help yourself. It is for people who want to TRUST themselves and NOT their doctor to change their health. It’s for people who want more than Traditional Cardiology and want to learn about what an integrative approach is and how it applies to SVT. It is the first guide, in a series of guides, that I plan to publish and is the foundation for all the guides that follow.
- The differences between traditional cardiology and an integrative approach to SVT
- An Introduction into the Heal SVT Naturally Approach
- How to minimize or stop an SVT episode
- Understand and Identify acute SVT triggers
- Discover the concept of root contributors to SVT and their impact on the entire body.
- Find out how to track and analyze the meaning of your symptoms
- Follow a healing plan with flexibility and ease
- Learn about long-term SVT prevention
- View SVT as an opportunity to assess the quality of your overall health and happiness
