I am 52, I live in California (Orange County). I have been married for 19 years and have two beautiful children. A son who is 16 and a daughter who is 14. I have always had a knowing that there is more to life. When I was around 14 years old I remember sitting in my ethics class thinking that I am here for more, I thought there was more to life than stuff, getting stuff. I also had the realization that gossiping about other kids just didn't feel good. I was raised catholic and attended catholic school for 12 years so there was some major programing that I have had to work through. One thing that did help me was learning about the mystics in the catholic religion. My grandmother was a very special woman who prayed all the time. She would also give money to help people all the time. She did not speak English and my Spanish was not that good but we had a special connection.
I was adopted and was very quiet when I was young. I got into crafts so I have always made things since I was very young. I have been a stay at home mom for almost 17 years. I felt it was important to be home for my family, I love to cook and I focus on my kids and husband.
When my son was 18 months he got sick from several ear infections, he was not talking yet or pointing we were afraid it was autism. I started to read every book on the subject and I prayed like never before. We found the Son-Rise program and traveled to learn how to reach our son. We also had Raun Kaufman come out here and train us on their program. He had been diagnosed with autism in the 70's and his parents came up with a program to help him completely recover.
This changed our lives for the better. When I was in Massachusetts in 2007 I saw the movie The Secret. When I came back home I enrolled in Reverend Michaels meditation I attended Agape whenever I could and learned so much.
I love learning about what we can do, what we really can do. I was excited to find Mindvalley and I thought I would try the Duality course, I really loved it, I meditate everyday and I have been able to practice the Duality exercises everyday. I decided to join the course because I want more, not just for myself but for my family. My kids are experiencing so many things being out there in high school and I want to.help give them tools that will help them to be successful in life. Most importantly I want them to be happy and to be able to connect with other people and to help themselves and others.
The most memorable thing for me from this course - funny enough I didn't know how to ground myself to the earth. After the class on grounding I was at the beach, I practiced the grounding and them I had to go up a huge flight of stairs. I let go of my grounding cord and I was able to easily get all the way up the stairs without getting winded. I was so grateful.
