I had always dreamt of creating an impact that would change lives for the better. Let’s back up a little. Halfway through the marriage, my husband came to me and said that he didn’t want to be married to me the way I was anymore. Little did I know that he was having an intense emotional affair with the man he claimed was just a good friend, and at the end or our relationship, admitted that he had been in love with him. Not knowing about the affair, willing to look at my issues and wanting to save my marriage, I embarked on a journey to heal my past, which became the key to my freedom and my future. Knowing I didn’t want to sit in a therapy office for hours and hours (good option, but the slow-boat to China) I wanted something that could get to the root cause fast. I found The Journey and became a Certified Journey Practitioner (CJP). I had no idea at the time that this would lead to where I am today. Through my work with The Journey, my inner and outer walls came down, and I found a freedom I longed for my whole life; the freedom to live in joy. I opened to the truth and the light that I am today. And it seemed like my marriage became more of what I knew it could be.
Little did I know that he was making choices to lay the foundation for betrayal. Ultimately, despite doing my healing work, my past weaknesses were held against me. It wasn’t until I was awakened to the betrayal, trauma, and manipulation that had been my life for 34 years, that all the puzzle pieces came together. I’d been emotionally abused my whole marriage.
