was in 2017 that I started to discover self awareness, even if that discovery was a hard path, that was the year it all started.
The fact that I am even writing that line reminds me of how far I have come
since then. You see it was in 2017 that everything that I thought I was died,
or should I say the ego's image of me died. By been aware and surrendering to
the fact that I cannot control the external factors in this life I was able to
start focusing on my internal self from within. So it began, the journey of
discovery that has me seeking discomfort in all areas of my life.
So come late 2018 I was asked to take part in a Wimrise, this is basically getting up for the sunrise, breathing the Wim Hof method then getting into the Irish sea for a dip. I had no idea as to what I was doing regarding the Wim Hof method, but I gave it a bash and then got into the cold sea. Little did I know that this was the start of my journey into the world of Wim Hof.
The year 2019 was a pivotal year for me as it was the year of major inner growth as well as going deep with the Wim Hof Method. Over the year I would take park in Wim Hof fundamental workshops, and it was in these workshops that I started to unearth a powerful feeling from within me, I would feel this strength, have clear focused vision and a strong sense of empowerment. When it came to the end of 2019, I was booked in to do a Wim Hof workshop, it was in this workshop that I had that lightbulb moment. I found my passion and it was coming from a strong place within. I knew there and then I wanted to be the best version of myself and tap into my unlimited potential and through the Wim Hof method I was able to do this. So there and then I decided to become a Wim Hof Method Instructor and singed up the WHM Academy.
Then came March 2020, I would travel to the Nederland's to the Wim Hof Academy to start the advanced journey as a Wim Hof Method Instructor. Here is where I met some amazing people and instructors as well as Wim Hof himself. During this time, I had an outer body experience where I see nothing but myself as this tribal warrior but without any weapons just me standing there slightly swaying staring straight back at me, the message I got was this is who I am deep down beneath it all, I just need to show up do the work and share this tribal warrior strength that's within me. To say I felt invincible after that weekend at the WHM Academy would put it mildly. I arrived back home with this relentless feeling and since then and throughout 2020 I have been sharing the Wim Hof Method and allowing a space for others to try and connect to their own inner warrior, a warrior that we all possess and that's waiting there to be unleashed to heal this world.
The year 2021, So as the world around me stopped due to what was going on I continued on my path of self-discovery and so it was in September 2021 that I went over to Poland for a week to attend the master's Wim Hof Academy to become fully qualified as a Wim Hof Level 1 instructor. Again, just like that when you are surrounded by strong powerful humans who are leading from their hearths that you get to expand on so many levels. It was a powerful time spent with Wim Hof and the other Wim Hof Instructors.
It’s now 2023 the journey is continuing, and I am heading into the future as a qualified Level 2 Wim Hof Method Instructor. I am humbled and so grateful that I get to pass on this amazing method with a powerful message "we are the alchemist of our own mind, body and soul" but as always, I'm staying present, living in the unknown and creating the life that I desire.
