Was there a time that you looked in the mirror and asked the question, “How can I run away from you?” Or did you tell yourself, breathe... you’re going to be okay? You’ve gotten through so many things in your life. You’ve got this. Most people regardless of colour, nationality, gender and religion go through some stage in their life where we may find ourselves in deepest pain because of losing someone or something precious to us or friends or loved ones betrayed us when darkness seems to win and our world is crumbling. I was not exempted to that. I don’t think people understood what’s lingering in my mind when I don’t even understand it myself. I felt so alone and devastated. I looked on every side, on every corner until I reached the bottomless pit of despair but no one even cared.

It seemed perfect back then; I do my daily routine, spending most of the time at work and giving my all but in this life, the only thing permanent is change. I totally agree with that, I lost my job and have gone through so much pain and depression. I was totally attached to it that it consumed all my strength and life when it was taken away from me. At first, I was denying my own feelings to make everyone else comfortable, to make everyone see and feel that it did not affect me at all; that my life did not stop the moment I lost it. I tried to hide it but the more I hide it, the more I smile to cover the agony, the more people see how broken I am inside.

God was so good to me, he used someone who had gone through the same pain to let me understand that sometimes He will give us something that we really wanted just to show us that it is not something we

needed. It was a life-changing experience that I didn’t expect. I woke up from a long sleep, picked up the broken pieces of me, started to heal the deep scar of loneliness and despair. Sometimes blessings come in

disguise, it comes through trials and pain so we can realize that there is something more wonderful and fulfilling that is waiting for us.

As I am in my process of healing and overcoming my past, I explored other things that I loved to do. The ones that I used to love and just forgot about because I was blinded by things that are more pleasant and acceptable. I cultivated my talents in the field of music and orchestra. I began to travel all around the world and as I meet different people with diverse cultures and personality, I understood that I have a purpose of reaching out to everyone not just through my music but through my wisdom and experiences. From coaching and conducting hundreds of amateurs and professionals across Canada, USA, Europe and the Middle East in voice and musicianship, I decided to fully retire from engineering to fully devote my pursuit of the music profession. In 2012 I sold all my possessions and booked a one-way ticket to Berlin, Germany; from there I conducted operas across Europe and won 3rd prize in the 2013 International Conducting Competition in Budapest, Hungary. In 2014, I returned to Canada and began my studies in psychotherapy, while continue with my conducting career as an ongoing passion.

It was hard at first losing something precious to me but without losing it, I would never have pursued something worthwhile and fulfilling. I may not end up with a job that people perceived as something that can provide me security financially but I am proud to say that I felt secure and happy on the road less travelled.

The diverse worlds of work and life experiences have built upon one another and connect as a whole. They are what led me to discover my purpose and to develop ‘Heal the Source™’, a method that helps people fast-track their own healing based on their need for change and development. It is through this one-of-a-kind approach that my intuitive leadership and integrity shine through. My visionary way of thinking and my intriguing ability to motivate and inspire is what guides me in serving others through Heal the Source™ to heal the world.

At some point, I thought I wouldn’t be able to recover to the extent of needing someone to get me back on track not just emotionally but also physically, spiritually and mentally. I was able to gather all my strengths and move on, live freely, laugh as if there is no tomorrow and love unconditionally. I would say that I was able to mold a better version of me. I was able to pursue what I wanted and thrilled on what I can share with the people that surrounds me.

Now, as I look in the mirror after all the hardships and trials; with a smile, I say to the person in the mirror, “You did great”. “Thank you for holding on and staying alive”. “Thank you for discovering your
