Contrary to some beliefs, it is pain, that is the great motivator that gives people the opportunity to make a change in their life - if they choose to. . . Pain from being broke, without a mate, losing a parent, lack of health or pain in the body, it really doesn’t matter - pain motivates. . . Pain wakes us up. It pierces through the noise in our heads & it shoots directly through to our hearts. It can open up our consciousness & awareness to things we’ve not been paying attention to or taking action toward. . . Even devastating things that happen in our lives can push us to wake-up to new realizations about ourselves & it might even push us in directions in our lives we didn’t think about before ... . . ... it happened to me years ago, after Chiropractic College, where life sent me down a road to learn about & experience different techniques for emotional healing. It was at that time that I realized I was passionate about emotional healing & how it directly connected to physical healing. I was a very sensitive person, however emotional well-being was not my strength, as my physicality & athleticism was way out of proportion stronger ... now in my life, I’m happy to say they’re equal. . . Various kinds of pain & painful events give us opportunities to wake up & we decide the meanings as to why these events have happened & how we choose to respond to them. . . Years ago, even though I was going through tremendous amounts of pain, I was also simultaneously realizing my passion at the same time. . . And it became my obsession, that no matter how badly I was feeling & the stuff I had to dig through, it was the clarity of the skills I was learning & my passion & vision of what became my work today, that propelled me along all these years. . . People say bad things happen for us, not to us & I don’t agree with that, but what I do know is that we choose who we’re going to be & what we’re going to do with those feelings, regardless of what happened. . . Put all of your feelings into creating something, regardless what it is ... all the heart break, sadness, rage, anger, resentment. Keep healing, keep evolving & keep creating with it all.
"A little over a year ago, I was lost emotionally, in chronic pain, unemployed and financially unstable. These words I just wrote make my eyes well up as they appear on my screen. Not because of the struggle and pain they challenged me with, but because I am free of them. Words can have so much power. They can create a dream and can also kill a soul. They can heal a wound and scar a heart - They can also heal you."
I've never been shy of any kind of self-help therapy. All the books I read and all the therapy I received did help, but it was all so fleeting. The demons would once again show their nasty heads and there I was back to my old self. I just went around in the same vicious cycle grasping for answers, coming up short and out of breath.
Enter into my life, Dr. Harold Turk.
To say that this man changed the course of my life is grossly underplaying what he in fact did. He gave me tools I never knew I needed. He showed me how to breathe…metaphorically of course. I also saw parts of me I never knew existed - good and bad. I learned how to embrace what is, and not run from, but run into my obstacles. I learned how to let my life unfold and watch it take flight without getting in my own way. His touch is nothing short of magical, although at times I thought he'd break me. His words are earth shattering, powerful weapons of destruction...destruction of the garbage we live with inside our heads, so subconsciously. I am here today as proof that we all have the capacity within us, to change, to grow, to conquer. We all have that champion that yearns to be heard and seen. You have to be able to break that outer shell. You have to look inside deeper than ever and you must let Harold be the man for the job. Welcome him into your life. You will never be the same...and, that's a great thing."
