Kai's Profile

About

Hi! I'm Kai. I'm a New Age Spirituality & Illness blogger, and a Resilience Coach. I've been in the mind, body, Spirit field for the last 17 years, and I help Spiritual Spoonies & people dealing with illness navigate the Dark Night of their Soul. When I'm not coaching clients, I like to blog about #NewAgeIllnessShaming .

My Dark Night of the Soul came in 2011, when I found out that I had a genetic connective tissue disorder called Ehlers Danlos Syndrome (EDS), and it had destroyed 48% of my spine (and counting). I discovered my spine condition at the age of 23, after facing a severe spinal injury of 4 herniated discs. Despite pain & disability, I pushed on, working and taking part in normal activities, until my spinal condition finally tripled in the short time of only 8 years.

Hi! I'm Kai. I'm a New Age Spirituality & Illness blogger, and a Resilience Coach. I've been in the mind, body, Spirit field for the last 17 years, and I help Spiritual Spoonies & people dealing with illness navigate the Dark Night of their Soul.

My Dark Night of the Soul came in 2011, when I found out that I had a genetic connective tissue disorder called Ehlers Danlos Syndrome (EDS), and it had destroyed 48% of my spine (and counting). I discovered my spine condition at the age of 23, after facing a severe spinal injury of 4 herniated discs. Despite pain & disability, I pushed on, working and taking part in normal activities, until my spinal condition finally tripled in the short time of only 8 years. With much heartache, I was forced to retire from my successful vintage furniture business to care for my health.

As a result of my EDS I've faced a Near Death Experience, intracranial hypertension, a cerebral spinal fluid leak, 11 herniated spinal discs, and glaucoma. It was through these trials that I developed my intuitive gift more fully and invented THE WOUNDED HEALER MASSAGE BALL (TWHMB).

Because of these worsening complications with my illness, I've been stuck flat in bed since January 2014. Despite all of this difficulty, and the tough task of being bedridden 22 hours per day, I'm still resilient and bring a smile with me most places.

I hold certifications in Reiki II, Lifeforce Energy Healing, Sound Healing, Yoga Instructing, Yoga Peace Ambassador and am a self-taught artist. I've traveled most of the US as a flight attendant and hold a BA in International Relations.
