Hey Queens!

Happy Sunday. Today is the beginning of a new week. We have 4 months not including August until the year is over and I must say this year has definitely been a transforming one for me. First, I’d like to point out that it has officially been 25 years since I lost my parents. To me, this is very significant because for so many years of my life I have been struggling with a lot as a result of their loss. I also wanted to point out that even though I am extremely grateful for my life, I still experienced something very traumatic at 18 months old.

People who survive traumatizing situations should be looked at in a different light because they are not the same person that they were before that event took place. This can vary from many trauma things such as car accidents, sexual assault and abuse, childhood trauma, domestic and family violence, and abuse.

I am the woman I am today because I made healing my own responsibility. Growing up, I never understood certain things about myself or my life. I did not understand why I was not normal like the other children I grew up around. When I became an adult, things became more clear for me. As I grow older, I learn more about myself and I learn more ways to heal with all the traumatic things that I have endured throughout my life.

Before it was officially 2020, I decided I was going to use this year to heal from what happened 25 years ago. I started working on my book about my life which helped me get out some emotions that I kept bottled in. I also started listening to more self-awareness audio books like Healing Trauma by Peter Levine.

Last week I had a series of surgical procedures to help with my nose breathing. I had a severe deviated septum which was causing a blockage of airflow in my nostrils. For so many years of my life, I struggled with sleeping at night, staying up during the day, breathing during my workouts and while I sing or perform.

This surgery was supposed to be a positive life changing experience for me because this whole time I have not been breathing properly. Tomorrow, I see my surgeon for a follow up appointment and I also will see how my breathing has changed since my surgery last week. I am very excited about this and my new breathing so I decided to add a new waist bead on my body to invite new positive energy into my life before I see my doctor.

I have faith that my surgeon did everything properly and also believe this will be a new life experience for me. We don’t think about something simple as breathing through your nose having such a negative impact on life. Well the struggle has finally come to an end! I am ready for this new healthy lifestyle.

The new waist bead that I added after my surgery have the following colors to represent the following energy:

Orange for passion, creativity and sexuality

Blue for communication and openness.

Green for love, forgiveness and growth.

Red for strength, grounding and stability.

Purple for higher knowledge and spirituality

I keep you all updated as I continue my new journey of life.

Love Always,

-Malon Mahotiere
