And how I did too.
Life is full of ups and downs, twists and turns, and many times fear and depression. I’d like to share my personal story of the creation of the Life’s dance collection. A collection that may not have come to life had I not faced a fear that almost left my soul paralyzed. The meaning and emotions behind the collection came well before the designs; due to an overwhelming desire to live in a place of empowerment instead of fear.
Late last year, I received an unexpected diagnosis of a form of lung disease that destroyed a piece of my lung and damaged other areas. Surgery to remove this damage was the only way to ensure my lung would not collapse for a third time, potentially taking me with it; a surgery that would remove 20% of the lung itself. Needless to say, I was afraid. I was becoming paralyzed by the fear. Fear of the unknown, fear that I had not done enough, been enough, or helped enough.
I knew I could not let the fear of who I am not, take me to a place of darkness that I might not be able to get out of. Instead of falling apart, I decided to face this energy sucker head on, I told it to go to hell, and found a way to live in a place of empowerment. I studied energy healing, gemstone healing, meditation, breathing control and Reiki. I found strength in the power of positivity and my continuing sobriety, and have realized just how strong I am.
Today I cry, I get overwhelmed, I question and I do worry. Today I have fear; I don’t live in fear. I turn my fear into power, and move forward one step at a time. I look at this challenge as a blessing not a curse. Now I am determined to help others embrace their life’s dance with empowerment just like I do. If I can do this, I believe I can help you do the same.
Today, I create and share beautiful things amid this journey, little spiritual and energetic treasures that have the power to wash away fear and uncertainty, and replace them with powerful elements of positive energy, healing, grace and hope. This is the Life’s Dance Collection. https://tamaramichellejewelry.com/shop/
