Past Relationship Pain Be Gone

So you’re still carrying painful baggage from a past relationship, and don’t know how to get rid of it. Your heart is wounded, you have buttons that are triggered when you go into a new relationship. Perhaps worst of all, you have been so traumatized from a past relationship that you don’t even contemplate trying a new one.

– You feel helpless, hopeless & powerless sometimes.

– You lose energy from internal dialogue

– You’re in pain, anger, shame, blame and trauma from a past relationship.

When you heal past relationships you learn about yourself, your patterns, your buttons, your needs.

When I left my marriage I was so angry and so afraid of losing my 5 yr old little girl. I bubbled with anger, hate, fear, desperation and many, many moments of wanting to get back at him. I was consumed by negative emotions. I was in an ugly custody battle so I just put my personal healing in a metaphysical drawer and kicked it shut. I closed down my heart and continued to survive.

Once custody was resolved and the divorce final 3 years had passed and that metaphysical drawer was covered in dust forgotten. My attention focused on raising my child and financial survival. It wasn’t until I was back in a relationship that the wounds on my heart started to be felt again. There is nothing like relationship to offer an opportunity to see where we need to heal. I worked on healing myself, but also chose to numb the pain with food, cigarettes, alcohol and other drugs.

Life continued, but no matter how many self-help books I worked through, I could not get out from under the pain of my past history, and my addictions continued.

I got to a point of desperation and took a leap of faith to enter a shamanic program that focused on addiction.

I finally found out why I had been unable to heal and a way to release past history and move forward in life.

No longer carrying a huge backpack of rocks, I moved forward with shamanic tools and ceremonies which I used and continue to use to heal and grow.

I found shamanic ceremonies and tools so valuable, that I got trained and acquired my shamanic coaching certification in 2012. Since then I have shared this ancient and profound healing knowledge, helping others release pain, and move forward in their lives happier and better equipped to continue releasing what no longer serves them.

Past history is exactly that, everything that has happened to you in the past, and it impacts you in subtle and not so subtle ways. The pieces that leave you with pain, shame or blame are the red flags to where you need to heal.

They do not always show up that way however, they may simply look like

  • irritation
  • not liking someone yet you can’t figure out why
  • passive aggressive behaviour
  • isolating
  • addictions (over or under eating, over exercising, drinking, legal and illegal narcotics, cigarettes, etc)
  • constantly helping others while putting yourself second
  • depression
  • unusually happy, everything is always ok ….. hmmmm!
  • inability to stand up for yourself, always agreeing

The list is endless. We are very creative beings and we are very creative at functioning no matter what.

I grew up in a family were I was loved, had all my physical needs met, food, clothing, housing, how could I possibly have ended up an addict?

Because under all addiction is emotional pain.

Why did I have emotional pain?

I had changed who I was as a child to fit in, be loved, be accepted, to be safe.

I ask you,  are some of your most stressful times you have as an adult, going home for the holidays?

Before finding shamanism I was constantly looking for the ‘why’.

  • Why was I an addict
  • Why was I so angry
  • Why I felt so screwed up
  • Why didn’t I just have more self-control (Now there’s a huge piece of crap served up as the truth in our culture.)

Shamanism takes you out of your head and into your heart.

It’s experiential, which circumvents the mind and the ego.

You actually don’t need to know ‘why’ in order to heal.

All you need is an intent and a process that works for you.

Shamanic healing ceremonies do just that.

I’m a no nonsense, no bullshit woman. It was this ruthlessness in the light that got me to where I am now.

  • Sober (I do use sugar now and again ….. Work in process)
  • Happy and healthy most of the time
  • Using tools and ceremonies from shamanism and elsewhere when I need to release some new emotional layer of the proverbial onion
  • Having a healthy balance between work and play
  • Always learning always changing
  • Moving more and more into my heartspace

It is one of my gifts to tell it straight, to say what needs to be said even when it’s challenging.

I’ve lived a life that has been full of ease and a life that was anything but.

I created both of them, I now prefer the ease.

I do not believe in ‘No pain, no gain’, I think that’s a load of crap, be it physical or emotional.

Now if I’m climbing up the sand cliffs on Savary Island after spending a glorious day on the long white sand beaches and warm waters, with a fabulous book and some delicious food, well that kind of physical challenge is worth it to me.

If you invite me to go for a lovely jog in the woods, uh no, not fun in my world.

I’d rather get together for a walk in the woods with a stop afterwards for some tea and a chat about the new innovations in science and technology, hilarious movies, or some yummy recipe you’ve tried. Don’t get me started on the nature of reality or why we’re here, that discussion could go on forever.

Ten years ago I would not have believed that it was possible

  • to be sober and happy
  • that my past history is actually in the past, well most of it (the proverbial onion again).
  • That I am not consumed by internal dialogue and the daily battle to be sober.
  • I would never have believed that I would not be fearful of winter depression, which would leave me stuffing sugar, watching negative movies on the couch.
  • I could not have imagined that I had manifested a little cottage in the forest with a view of the ocean, and a calm life that feeds me on so many levels.

It would have been inconceivable to me, to imagine who I am now and the life I have created.

I am unique, but I am not special in my ability to create my life.
You have the exact same ability.
To create a life where you are happy
Without the echos of negative past history
Manifesting in the present

I work with women 20 years and older

A BIT OF MY JOURNEY till now ….  Questions are always welcomed.

I have been using and exploring shamanism for 15 years now. In 2004 the need for sobriety brought me to healing through ceremony and shamanism, for that I am extremely grateful. Having lived with an addictive personality and depression most of my life, I had finally found the healing modality that worked for me. Starting with a one year addiction program, and then apprenticing to continue studying. I started my training with the Deer Tribe Metis Medicine Society based in Scottsdale Arizona and continued to certification through The Institute of Shamanic Medicine in Canada.  

In 2007 combining my passions of art (michelefireriverheart.com) and healing work, I created ‘Joy Infusion’. A company providing healing art workshops. Self-created and facilitated, these workshops were designed for people to have fun with no art experience that offered healing opportunities. Workshops from Sacred Self Mask Making to Land Art Experiences, creativity abounded and healing happened.

I started a healing practice in 2012 under the name Galago Healing, which transitioned into HEALING through CEREMONY at the beginning of 2017.

I am passionate about how we heal physically, emotionally, spiritually and what methods can be used to accomplish this. Shamanism is the predominant method of healing I use, but when I find other types of healing methods useful, I blend those into my practice. I am not static and neither is my healing practice.

I offer a 9 week experiential course called ‘Past Relationship Pain Be Gone’
Private shamanic life coaching
Shamanic Healing Ceremonies
Energy Healing of the physical and energetic bodies
Rites of Passage ceremonies & Rituals

I live on an island, in a little cottage in the forest with the ocean at my feet. 

I have dreamed well and I am grateful.
