Life before Journey Work
I was born in Mauritius and I had a happy childhood. As I grew up, I practised Reiki, yoga and meditation during my spare time. After doing my BA in Political Science in India, I came back to Mauritius and I started working as a reporter at the age of 20. After 5 years I was a magazine editor. I had a good salary, a happy family and many friends. So what made me leave everything and move to England? Well, as you might have guessed, it was a relationship issue.
My peaceful life was shattered when my relationship broke up. Strong emotions that I had not previously experienced surged up. I felt rejected and unloved, anger and fear of loneliness. I chose to leave and I moved to England thirteen years ago. You can run away from fear, but it has its own way to track you down to come and get you.
It was a bit downhill from there. The same pattern showed up in my next relationship. I started having health problems. When I look back now, I can see that it was partly related to the loneliness I felt after my father passed away when I was 17 years old. My relationship with my boyfriend came more from a place of needing to feel safe and protected, rather than from a place of love. I tried several therapies to improve my health.
I knew that my search was over the moment I had my first Journey Process in 2010.
I am grateful to my mother who found out about the Journey. She asked me to accompany her to one of Brandon’s book launch workshop. I knew nothing about The Journey at that time and I signed up for the Journey Intensive programme without having even read the book. I still remember clearly how on that day 8 years ago, I was both curious and apprehensive about attending the workshop. During my first process, I almost ran away as it brought up unexpected strong emotions and scary memories that had been buried.
Today, I can honestly say that The Journey has saved my life. Journey work is an ongoing process and I am discovering my own healing journey. I consider my life to be a ‘work-in-progress’. When problems arise, I ask myself, "What’s the best that can happen?"
My inner voice tells me that the problems I experience are here to help me discover how I can support others who are on a similar journey. I am now in a place of deep gratitude and trust. Through the Journey, I am on a path to reach the very best for me. You can find yours too.
