IT BEGAN WITH AN IDEA…AND THEN BECAME A DREAM
As I sat down to map out the true desire for what Ritual Haus could truly be, the emotions hit me all over again…
In 2021 I gave birth to a perfect bundle of tiny tiny love. Aria was under 500g when she was born at a very early 23 weeks gestation. Aria was not meant for this imperfect world, but she left a lasting impression on myself, and my partner. An impression that I had to learn to traverse through with 5 other children at home to care for. Having not needed or required professionals in the mental health space prior to this time, I found myself in unfamiliar territory and feeling extreme discomfort sharing my story and bringing up that trauma over and over again. It was at this moment I knew what Aria’s legacy would leave for me, to assist other women in this space needing multiple modalities under one banner to traverse these feelings and ultimately overcome them.
And that’s when Ritual Haus was born. I truly believe we are only dealt what we can handle, which means we are able to overcome these times to ultimately find our purpose again.
Unfortunately for me this wasnt my only hurdle to overcome at this time. I was in the middle of a divorce that been going on for some time and I was struggling with the emotions that surrounded a space that was uncomfortable and really sad for me. I truly thought in the harrows of this tumultuous time that I would never be the same again, that I would never truly recover from so much fear, manipulation and utter depths of brokeness from losing a child whilst trying to juggle all those other events simultaneously. Today, some things are still hard, I struggle to fully understand why things happened to me the way they did but I have truly grown from these experiences and I hope through these experiences I will be able to help another woman move through these emotions in a more controlled environment than the way I did.
