I have worked with physically hurting clients and patients for almost 2 decades. From serious painful conditions to debilitating digestive, sleep, and hormonal dysfunction. Most of my patients were women who had spent a lifetime taking care of everyone but themselves. Many of whom struggled with weight problems. I saw numerous diseases in the years I practiced Chiropractic and Wellness Coaching, but I know without a doubt that every single case I saw of disease and dysfunction has some ties to the person’s emotional health and past.
You might be thinking WHAT how can my past give me a disease or dysfunction in my body? Well let me give you a few examples.
Marilyn struggled with a lifetime of constipation. She ate well, lived well but just couldn’t get “regular” without laxatives. Then through some processing she remembered as a young child pooping her underwear and getting a severe punishment for it. Because of that trauma her body now saw pooping as being “BAD” and associated it with pain. Thankfully she was able to do some healing around this trauma and get her colon moving again on it’s own.
Marta grew up with driven parents who only showed love when Marta had successes or accomplishments in her life. This drove Marta to constantly be striving, pushing and doing more. She never felt good enough, fit enough, important enough to win her parents affection. Marta had a poor self esteem and never felt truly loved by her parents. Interestingly she developed heart problems in her thirties. Then Marta found MamaHug’s Solutions for an Abundant Life classes and began to heal the wounds of her childhood. She found her worth, goodness, and realized she was ENOUGH. Ironically she stopped having heart problems.
Sarah lived as a shy introvert mom for many years. She prioritized her family but never herself. She felt a great deal of grief when both her parents died and her body started to dysfunction. She attended MamaHug’s Solutions classes for several years. She says it was like these sunglasses came off of me and I learned about me, healed my past, my body, and saw myself as valuable and worthy. Today Sarah is a Speaker, Educator and Facilitator for thousands all over the United States.
I can go on and on with story after story of emotional wounds leading to dysfunction in a person's body and life.
The first few years I was in practice I couldn’t understand why a big percentage of the clients I saw were not getting better. They would come in week after week with the same issues. They would follow my eating plans, take the supplements, do the stretches, get the exercise but still not fully heal. What was missing?
Healing Emotional & Spiritual Wounds
In late 2007 when I started to offer healing sessions with prayer and anointing clients started sharing some of the pain and trauma from their past. Whether it was a small hurts or big ones I could hear their pain and pray for them during my sessions.
The result was 75% improvement in their conditions. WOW. I couldn’t believe it, but over and over and over again I would see such an increase in clients health with this new way of wellness.
But because I didn’t fully understand it the work became emotionally and physically exhausting for me. I was just one person with lots of clients wanting my time. I got burned out and stopped seeing hands on clients for many years.
Then in 2016 God called me to connect with MamaHug. I didn’t listen for 9 months and then BOOM an opportunity came up for us to work together. My jaw was hanging on the floor the entire hour she presented at a Wellness conference we were doing. This work, these classes, this training WAS incredible. It was a simple and easy way to bring Wellness to clients everywhere without burning out the Facilitator. I knew I had to bring MamaHug to to the world online. Then people everywhere could get this deep Christ centered inner healing.
For more than 45 years Mamahug’s counseling, classes, books, and trainings have helped heal hearts, RESTORED Relationships, alleviated Fear and STRESS , and TRANSFORMED lives.
