At the height of my business, I was diagnosed with a rare blood disease and told that I could bleed to death easily.
I was shocked and unsure how to live my life going forward. I spent 6 months depressed.
My business suffered.
I didn’t drive anywhere for fear I'd have an accident.
I didn’t cook for fear I would cut myself.
I kept myself very small and isolated, a victim of my circumstances.
I wasn’t sure I wanted to go on.
Then one day on Facebook, I read that Roger Ebert – a famous film critic who’d lost his ability to speak & move - had died.
I realized he’d remined functioning, well respected film critic even after he could speak or move.
It was that day, I said to myself, “If he can contribute in his state, I can get up and start living again!.”
I redesigned my business and have grown it steadily ever since.
Now I have exceeded where I was 8 years ago and am loving every minute.
When I started working with Patti, I struggling with my weight, body image and self-concept. I thought my body was disgusting, had lost the game when it comes to health and was beating myself up constantly. While working with Patti, I realized that I had some nasty, negative ways of thinking that kept me stuck. She and I worked together to unearth these limiting beliefs and create positive, empowering ones. For instance, I now accept my body, appreciate my health, accept and love myself and have an incredible sense of calmness and accomplishment. After 8 sessions, I have lost fifteen pounds, gone from eating junk food at night, sleeping poorly, being unhappy with my spiritual life to eating a diet filled with vegetables, sleeping 7 hours per night, and feeling energized and excited by my spirituality. I couldn’t believe it when we reviewed my original intake form and everything on it had shifted for the better.
