Rebel against your limiting beliefs
WITH KAREN RAYMOND
Who is the Peaceful Rebel?
Hi! I'm Karen, and I am the Peaceful Rebel. The name of my practice perfectly explains my life goal - to be someone who peacefully rebels against anything that compromises who I am meant to be in this crazy world of ours.
It did take me awhile to get to this point! I came into the world as a PEACEFUL REBEL. I was happy marching to the beat of my own drum and was content with my huge imagination to keep me company. Those early years were pretty great!
When school started I was a bit of a square peg that everyone tried to fit into a round hole, and I got bruised along the way. This not fitting in feeling resulted in many LIMITING BELIEFS about myself. Life also threw a few negative experiences my way. I lost that peaceful part of me and became a full-time unhappy rebel, who battled with substance abuse, anxiety and various forms of depression.
(A not so Peaceful Rebel)
I was desperate to reclaim the peaceful feeling I knew I had within me. After years of trying different kinds of therapies (including the classic "SHOVE DOWN THE FEELINGS METHOD") and medications for depression, anxiety and insomnia, I started experiencing physical pain with nothing to attribute it to. I was physically, emotionally and spiritually compromised.
On the outside it looked like I had it made with a good job, two beautiful girls, a wonderful husband, a lovely home in a nice town - I even had the minivan. I felt shame and guilt for my suffering because I was so blessed. AND THEN MY LIFE CHANGED.
I had heard of EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques), aka "tapping" when we used it for my daughter and her sleep anxiety years ago. It worked like magic. I wanted some of that magic. After one session with a certified EFT practitioner, I FELT MORE RELIEF than I had ever experienced before. As I began to heal and transform my life using EFT, I made a commitment to become a practitioner.
Today, I want nothing more than to HELP OTHERS whose personal peace has been compromised. I am an Emotional Success Coach, certified by NeftTI, trained by Canada's only Master Trainer of Trainers, Nancy Forrester. I am also an accredited EFT practitioner by AAMET International. I have a practice in which I PROVIDE CLIENTS A SAFE PLACE to unburden themselves, release their tears and guide them as they process their pain and ultimately rebel against the issues that are preventing them from leading peaceful, happy lives.
