It has been a year and half since I completed the Lightning Process with Amanda - it has been a literal life-saver for me. I am 30 and had been suffering from chronic migraines for over 18 years and gone through the ringer; countless tests, dozens of medications, diets, biofeedback, having my bite restructured, massage, pain clinics, Botox, acupuncture and hypnotherapy (EMDR/brain spotting) to name a few. Very little gave me any relief. I felt exhausted, sad and hopeless. In the Spring of 2015 I finally took medical leave from work, they had gotten so bad, and this is when I heard about the Lightning Process from a family friend.
One of the biggest reasons the LP worked for me was the realization that I could control what was going on in my body, that I was not helpless. I had a lot more power than I realized. It seems simple but it was monumental for me. There is no pill or treatment that a doctor could give to me. After so many years of pain, I did not realize how badly I had spiraled into this sad, negative, unhappy person, even though I could put on a front at work or with friends. I had so many negative associations.
I cannot even begin to describe how my perspective has changed now... about everything, not just my headaches. I am significantly happier at work, have stronger relationships with my family and friends, and find joy in the little things again. The mindset shift has been HUGE! In my case, I really did need the 3 full day seminar to truly get the content down. But it is the best money I have ever spent. Hands down. I have my life back and every single person around me can see and feel the difference. Every. Single. Person.
I had been out on medical leave for 3.5 months before I did the seminar, taking heavy pain medications, not sleeping well and staying inside all day, every day. Three days after completing the seminar I went on vacation with my family and was outside all day taking walks, kayaking, biking, golfing, etc. I have so much more energy. Two weeks after the seminar I was back at work. Now a year and half has passed and I am still doing great. I am off all headache medications. Most days are pain free, but when a headache manages to sneak up on me, I can handle it with confidence and grace. They rarely last more than a day and are nothing a little self love and the LP can't handle. Now they are a mere blip on my radar, a slight inconvenience.
I am forever thankful for the LP. And Amanda! She is an absolute gem. I cannot imagine going through this process with anyone else. Amanda is incredible- she is extremely supportive, encouraging and knowledgable. It was not hard to open up to her and I continue to have follow-up sessions - partially to ensure I'm staying on track, but mostly because I truly enjoy her company.
I tell anyone and everyone I know about the LP. If you are on the fence, I encourage you to take the leap. I did, and I have never looked back!
