For as long as I can remember, I’ve been fascinated by transformation
The process of one thing becoming something else, all the while being made of the same essential stuff.
People often baulk at the use of the word “healing”, as if it denotes that there’s “something wrong” with them.
However, I tend to think that transformation is a more useful word. To me, it means the same thing as healing, but it’s much more empowering.
As a child it was all about…
Caterpillars/butterflies, blossoms/flowers or fruit, growing green beans from seeds (I. Grew. So. Many. Beans!)
And how small animals and people turn into to “grown up” ones.
And just where DID the small animals/people go?
Later my interest turned to supernatural things
Especially those that began as humans, such as vampires, werewolves, and ghosts.
Okay, full disclosure: I’m still a bit vampire obsessed, and might just own (and have watched many times) the entire Buffy The Vampire Slayer TV series. Not to mention my space adventure fan-girl status (top fave = Serenity!). 🙂
Somewhere along the way, I began asking myself… what all of this was about?
What is that process like, to become a vampire from being human? To become a perpetual space traveler instead of living on a single planet?
The answer that came to me was: a distinct interest in the process of transformation.
Or in other words, change
I really dig learning about the possibilities of shifting beyond what was previously thought to be true and/or possible.
Reality TV, gyms and personal trainers have made a fortune from focussing on physical transformation (i.e. weight loss), but what other limitations can we transform?
Like… when we think we’re a certain sort of person, and we think/feel in certain ways and there’s nothing we can do about it?
Thoughts, feelings, behavioural patterns, habits and even the way we perceive the world… can all be transformed too.
Of course, this is the work I do with Kinesiology
So in some ways, it’s no surprise that I find myself doing what I do. Yet it was also completely unexpected.
Every time a client expresses a desire to know their life purpose, I tell them a little about my journey:
I didn’t ever know I’d be doing this work until it suddenly occurred to me. I didn’t expect to be a yoga teacher, but found myself shifting from an in-depth yoga studies course to a teacher training at the request of the school’s principal. And I’ve heard other Kinesiologists say how they didn’t even know what Kinesiology was and yet they knew they wanted to be one. Not so for me. Instead, I’d a deep and abiding love for having my own Kinesiology sessions and then one day, the thought of studying Kinesiology flooded every part of my mind and body.
So my journey to doing the work I was meant to be doing?
Came from pursuing my passions. Following my interests down the rabbit hole. Trusting my heart. Finding those things that brought happiness and fulfillment into my life, and doing them.
And here I am: My name’s Ambha Amanda and I’m a Kinesiologist, intuitive healer, writer, educator and storyteller.
My motivation is the desire for transformation and growth for myself, and anyone else who wants it.
Wow. For most of my life, I honestly never knew I’d be any of these things.
This is the way of transformation
I don’t think transformation is always painful or fast, the way it’s often depicted in those vampire/werewolf stories.
Of course sometimes, the process can include painful experiences (physically, mentally, emotionally or spiritually).
But the overall process does take time.
Transformation involves the re-purposing of every cell in our body. The ushering in of new ways of being and thinking and feeling.
On my journey to re-forming and transforming myself, I’ve traversed many less than enjoyable life experiences.
However, I think they’ve helped me understand that real change is possible.
- I’ve completely reversed out the “life-long” autoimmune condition I was diagnosed with.
- I’ve also successfully recovered from PTSD, depression and anxiety.
Did any of this happen overnight? Hella no!
My autoimmune condition was diagnosed early and I made my #1 priority, the goal of healing and being free from taking pharmaceutical medication. It took roughly two years of dedicated treatment to feel well and energized again.
For three years, my PTSD was undiagnosed, and it took approximately five years from the time I began receiving treatment for it to resolve.
But what got me there was a belief that I could do it, and determination in pursuing appropriate healing modalities.
My underlying motivation?
I was completely dissatisfied with how life was, and I felt there HAD to be other possibilities for my quality of life.
Even if I couldn’t see them at the time.
My goal was never achieving transformation
It was about finding happiness. To create a life and lifestyle that supported me in positive ways.
Which meant I didn’t want to live with trauma. I didn’t even want to feel just “mostly better”. I wanted to be free of the impacts of trauma on my life and my perception of the world.
And when I was diagnosed with an autoimmune condition – which was an impact of all the trauma I’d experienced – I was only temporarily crushed, before I decided I wasn’t about to give up on creating the life I wanted.
I’d come so far already and this was just going to be one more thing I would find answers for.
Of course, the work continues
If I can transform a health condition or my depression or anxiety, then I’ve done something powerful for myself.
I’ve used all parts of who I am (including those parts that needed healing) to create change in my life.
The way I see it? Transformation is about taking the hero’s journey for yourself.
This is what I want for my clients
I care deeply for the beautiful souls who come to see me.
Heck, who am I kidding? I care for ALL beautiful souls (and all souls are beautiful).
When you come for a session, I always see your Highest Self. Your potential. The most empowered, embodied and open-hearted You.
And regardless of what you come to see me about – physical aches and pains, allergies, emotional/spiritual issues or anything else – this is my ultimate view of who you are.
My invitation to you is to see yourself this way, too
Transformed into the most limitless version of yourself possible.
The hero(ine) of your own story.
Powerful. Healed. Whole.
