From Surviving to Thriving: The Steps to a Meaningful Life

How I Transformed My Life Through Tantra Meditation, Somatic Healing Yoga, and Spiritual Mentorship, and How You Can Too. Parinaz Shams| Spiritual Life Coach

Five years ago, my life felt like a whirlwind of chaos. I was trapped in a cycle of burnout, frustration, and emotional exhaustion.

My career had become a relentless treadmill of overwork, leaving me drained and disheartened.

I was emotionally spent from the turbulence in my relationship. I was angry, on-edge, and confused as to why my life was not going the way I wanted even though I had worked so hard for every part of it.

My physical body was sending constant distress signals – chronic inflammation, stress, acne, and gut issues, making it that much harder to get through each day.

Every aspect of myself – my body, mind, heart, and energy – was overwhelmed and unhappy.

Outwardly, I seemed like a functional individual going about my days. I worked out, appeared healthy, and showed up for my responsibilities. I claimed to be "fine" when people asked.

But deep down, I knew the truth.

I wasn't fine. I was far from it.

It was time for a drastic change, a life-altering shift from survival to genuine thriving.

I had no idea how or where to start, but something told me it started with me and the type of relationship I had with myself.

I summoned all the courage within me and made a resolute decision – I wasn't going to settle for a life that was merely "fine." I wasn't going to allow myself to remain stuck in a cycle of misery.

It was time to leave the old life behind and embark on a journey of self-discovery and transformation.

It was clear to me that doing the usual self-care stuff like gym workouts and watching my diet and trying to have some fun on the weekends was not the solution, because the problem ran much deeper than self-care.

The path ahead was uncharted, but it held the promise of a more authentic and fulfilling existence. So I went ahead.

I began my transformation by sitting down with myself and engaging in a process of introspection.

I turned to the tools that I've come to share with the world today – tools that helped me get crystal clear about who I was and what I truly wanted.

It was uncomfortable at first to look at myself, my belief systems, the conditioning that had accumulated over my essence that was preventing me from being my REAL self in my relationship and in my career.

Although challenging, each step was a step toward liberation.

I could feel myself getting clearer and clearer on who I was and why I wasn't happy.

Every day the anxiety on my chest lessened, my anger and need to control everything subsided.

I was calmer, more at ease, and slowly I started to recognize a happier version of me appearing. It was then that I realized this "happier version" was the real me, she had always been there, she had just been covered up for a long time.

This was really only possible because I tapped into the power of healing tools, specifically Somatic Healing Yoga and Tantra Meditation. They were instrumental in helping me rediscover my inner balance.

The next most important part of my path was having the guidance of exceptional mentors paved the way for my personal growth and evolution. This is why I always recommend to people that they find a mentor, too. It can be really scary and confusing to do deep inner healing work on your own.

And now, five years later, the transformation is nothing short of remarkable. Still, somedays I have to smile at how far I've come and how much things have changed as a result of the inner work.

The path I've chosen, one uniquely mine, has led me to a level of fulfillment and inner calm I never thought possible. I've come to genuinely appreciate and love who I am.

My body is genuinely happy and healthy, my mind is clear and focused, and my heart is open to the beauty and possibilities life has to offer. And it's all because I connected with my True Self.

If you're after true happiness where you really like the person you are, then that's about something else entirely…

It's about fostering a profound relationship with your True Self, what I call your essence. This is where the real magic happens.

When you nurture this connection, you embark on a journey that goes beyond life's scripted roles and responsibilities.

Embracing your essence isn't just about knowing what you're good at or what you like it's about diving deep into your core values, passions, and the purpose that truly lights you up.

It's about stripping away the layers of conditioned identities to uncover the authentic you.

When you begin this inward journey, you step into a realm of boundless freedom.
