I know that my attachment to my old story had blinded me from many of the spectacular moments that have passed along the way. The pain of the past holding a cloth over the eyes of each moment, blurring the sunsets, and the sweet cuddles with my son. Preventing me from seeing them clearly, and stopping me from being in this moment now, in the full bliss that I am capable of.
Being born into to the privileged west, where we are raised in families with the resources to let us believe that we really can do anything, I’ve realized that this comes with it’s own challenge. First World Problems. Those problems that live in the space between our ears, that torture us, and keep us from being present in the day, and keep us up at night. In a world where we are supposed to have everything, our cars and houses and high paying jobs have taken us away from something crucial that we don’t even realize we are missing.
Happiness in THIS moment, and someones to share it with.
As I began my journey of recovery from the experiences that you are about to read about, I wondered:
What did it all mean?
What was the purpose of it?
Why had I put myself through such torture?
What had become of my life?
How could I possibly make sense of it all?
I knew I had to share the story, to bring light to the pain, to help other see that they weren’t alone, to help some avoid the mistakes I had made, and to share the powerful tools I had created to heal from my misery. After all, isn’t that the point of a good story?
So when I sat down to write this book, and asked JoyGasm, “what is the best way to serve” I knew then that the intention for this book is to create the most powerful tool of transformation for the women and men who read it. To offer you the gift that this experience created for me, without you having to go through all the shit I did. To tell you my story, and to let it help you understand yours, act as an opening catalyst to help you access the emotions you’ve locked away about the experiences we’ve shared. To help you see and feel those emotions, to give you the tools to process it, the community to support you, and by the end of the book for you to have the magic of The JoyGasmic Path at your fingertips.
I will ask you to walk with us
as together we go through the fire of shit that were our worst,
While we do that, I’d encourage you engaged with the online community. There, you’ll find written outlines of the tools, play along videos, and printable copies of the worksheets and mandalas so you can create your own daily practices.
