Being initiated into Motherhood with empty arms, Athanasia used her Shamanic Yoga background and Spiritual connection as a Psychic Medium and Energy Healer to dive deep into the healing journey her sweet daughter, Sage, brought into her life. Surrendering, accepting and allowing the sacred relationship of mother and child to unfold as the Universe would have it, not as Athanasia desired it to be.
Athanasia turned to the Bereavement groups to help support her process of grieving Sage. It was hearing other women’s story of healing and grieving that gave her the strength and courage to discover a unique relationship with her daughter on the Otherside. Links to these support groups are listed in the show notes below. A very special thanks to Athanasia for allowing me to record her and Sage’s story, and allowing me and trusting me to hold space for her in this way.
She is also very grateful to her doula, Maíra, who offered a very special closing of the bones ceremony and postpartum support. You can learn more about Maíra’s birth work at www.birthinghearts.com and follow Maíra on Instagram @mairadbmbirthkeeper.
