Seeker Wellness - Morgan Wasylyk, where is this coming from?
There might be some of my people out there having this thought - or just straight up wondering what the heck is going on here?!
I invite you to read my story, check out my training and look at what I have to offer.
Love and Happiness,
Life should be fun! It feels so ironic saying this now because I can tell you this was not always my life experience as a teen and young adult. On the bright side, my journey has allowed me to grow in ways that I didn’t even know were possible. Now, I’m so excited to help others on their path to leading their best life too!
I was once a master of putting on my happy face for everyone to see. I know you know what I’m talking about – so many of us are conditioned to be this way. On the outside, I really “had it together”. I was a social butterfly, fit, had a successful career, settled down, and involved in everything in my communities. However, if you really knew me then, you would have known that I suffered from many mental and physical illnesses as a teen and young adult.
It’s unbelievable what can happen to our mind and bodies when we don’t consciously make an effort to recognize what’s happening, accept it, and begin to restore our health through mental, spiritual and physical healing therapies. At the peak of my health deterioration, I was drowning in a sea of sickness in my mind and body. First of all, I was battling back and forth with an addiction to smoking and substantially abusing alcohol. It was very rare that through my grade twelve year to my early twenties that I could even go to bed without drinking. Eventually, a lot of my decisions and behaviours lead to mental illnesses as well. Anxiety, depression, severe anger outbursts/psychological instability, an eating disorder, compulsive exercise, and even suicidal thoughts were incarcerating me. I honestly don’t know how I kept it together looking back now. Over time, my body decided to send me some red flags and take charge as I wasn’t even willing to recognize that this was all happening and things could be different.
Slowly but surely, my body began to fail. It started off minor with several skin irritations such as rashes and acne. I became overwhelmingly self-conscious and embarrassed to face the world. My self-worth was plummeting. Eventually, this inflammation moved to swelling in my hands. My joints had become so swollen that the skin was cracking open on several of my knuckles. Once the swelling began, it was like there was something new happening on a week to week basis and I couldn’t keep up with it. I began to lose my eye sight, fainting, repetitive infections, couldn’t keep weight on, high blood pressure, more swollen and aching joints…I was literally falling apart. I had several doctors tell me that they suspected arthritis, Lupus, and Raynaud’s phenomenon to be the culprit and to take x, y, and z to “manage the symptoms”.
I was unable to accept patching myself up with prescriptions to mask my pain and discomforts - this wouldn't heal me. There’s a time and a place for pharmaceuticals and Western Medicine – and I’m so grateful we have it and it’s saved my life on at least two occasions – this just wasn’t my solution to these circumstances. I wanted to get to the root of what was going on, so I began to climb down the mountain off illness that I had created. I began working with a life-saving Naturopath, Homeopath, and Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioner/Acupuncturist and was exploring the healing arts of energetic therapy, aroma therapy, crystal therapy, meditation, life consulting/mentorship, and yoga. Through time and immersing myself in these healing therapies, I slowly started to bring myself back down the hill of sickness due to chronic stress and inflammation. Along the way I took several courses to learn these therapies so that I could help others too! After all, teaching, healing, and building others up is what I love to do!
I have a very specific desire; to be the person that I needed when I was a teen/young adult. I am so passionate about helping other people because I know so many of us are going through our own struggles. As a teacher, I’ve seen first-hand how many of our youth, young adults and adults are in the same boat as I once was. Different details to everyone’s stories, but still the same underlying issues. Honestly, whatever the story is, it all comes down to a struggle – a personal struggle that seems so daunting and insurmountable that we don’t even know where to begin in order to feel better or live the life we want to live.
Through my journey I’ve found my struggles to be a catalyst for my personal growth. Just like the lotus flower, we have the ability to bloom out of the “mud” and “darkness” and radiate into the world. Without my “mud”, I wouldn’t be the person I am today. I wouldn’t be able to relate to you and help you on your life journey. I’m SO thankful for all of my life experiences. All of the good and bad things that I’ve endured have played an intricate role in shaping me in who I am today, how I live my life, and how I empathize/help other people. I no longer struggle with my health or with a mental illness on a day-to-day basis. I am now THRIVING! I couldn’t be more happy with the relationship I have with my loving partner, Ty, our beautiful son, Kitt, my other personal relationships, my self-care routines, the ways I move my body to be healthy, the foods I eat, etc. Life is just SO good! That isn't to say that I don't ever have my struggles; I wouldn't be human without them. What's different is I am able to move through them with calmness and ease by applying my understandings and strategies that I have learned over the past 5 years.
Through several truth seeking journeys, courses, certifications, and getting in touch with my true self – I’m proud to say that I’m both HAPPY and HEALTHY! It’s an amazing feeling to be content, joyous, well (mentally and physically), and loving living life. I’m so excited to share simple life tools and strategies in order to help you be the best version of yourself too!
I look forward to working with you to end your inner struggles and to help you step into the life you deserve. It is your absolute birth right to be happy and healthy and I’m so excited to guide you to being so!
