I know, my blog is about meeting Sam but we can’t get to Sam without meeting Teri first – everything happens for a reason 🙂
About three years ago, my sister in law heard about a diet program – we all signed up and that is how I met Teri. The program at the time was called lovely, lively, and lean and it was really cool for me because this wasn’t a “diet” – I felt better, happier and more alive at the end so when Teri told me about her coaching, I was all over it.
There is a lot I could write about my work with Teri but I would need another blog to say the least. She transformed the way I live and see life as a whole – she took me from a stressed out, fearful, workaholic with no time to spare to the way I am today – loving my life, excited about learning, expanding, etc. The work is never done and she never gives up because her compassion for the human condition is admirable.
When I started working with Teri I thought a few sessions would “fix me” but I soon realized that I am nowhere close to being done. It is hard to explain what she does because she does so much but if I were to try I’d say that she guides me to the happiness I am capable of creating. Teri opened my eyes to the fact that I don’t have to suffer, I don’t have to be afraid and I don’t have to leave in the past, the future or in anybody else’s business. She helps keep me grounded and in the NOW – the present is what I have control over and with a lot of patience and a lot of love she has been gently guiding me to the light.
I am forever grateful that I went on that “diet” and my life hasn’t been the same. One of the first things Teri and I worked on was my fear of the dark and of “other stuff” in my space (empath training 101) – see the blog about my childhood, it had been 29 years of having this inexplicable fear. sometimes it would be crippling – I would not want to be quiet or be in the dark; I would not want to walk from my bed to the bathroom, I would not want to be alone or sleep alone, it was the worst at night when things were quiet…I was anxious.
Through EFT, Sedona and other release methods, Teri helped me feel better, get rid of the intensity, etc but at the same time she explained what was going on, what I was feeling and why. For the first time, I felt safe. I wasn’t crazy and I knew I can get help.
For the next few years Teri worked with me on everything from attracting wealth & business to the fear of giving birth, to the smallest little issues and upsets that would get in my way of being relaxed and present. I could always count on her to shine light on the truth and help me see outside of my upsets, stories, and programming.
Slowly, I started feeling happier, more relaxed and more efficient – who knew I actually had time to have fun, enjoy my life and create the life I wanted to have? Who knew I have all the power to make a difference, that life doesn’t happen “to me”? Who knew my YESs are the same as my NOs? I had options, choices and control – I could live in the present yet create my future and yet it sounded easy, it is incredibly hard.
A recent example is practicing the Magic by Rhonda Byrne – easy, simple exercises – reading them I thought “that’s it? This is easy!” Yet doing them every day for 28 days proves to be a bit harder than anticipated – who do we find it hard to accomplish simple tasks that will increase the quality of our life? The Magic was the latest exercise I did before meeting Sam (when I got a bit distracted), and I intend to attempt it again – 28 days, 28 happy days, 28 grateful days for an even better life. How exciting 🙂
Thank you, Teri, for all your help and for all the help you will continue to give me – what would I ever do without you? If you wonder who Teri is, you can find her here: http://www.accesstheedge.com and yes, you need her, she ROCKS!
