Sorry I haven’t done this before, I am always so busy!!!
Just wanted to say what an amazing thing “The Lightening Process” was for me…
I got glandular fever in February 2010 at the age of 50 . Prior to this I led an extremely active life I owned a horse which I competed to a high level in dressage and rode at least 2 or 3 other horses a day as well as teaching other people on their horses, had 2 grandchildren who I looked after regularly and actively played with.
To cut a long story short, I started to get back on my feet in October and then started riding again towards Xmas time just a little at a time and taught the odd lesson. The following year I went to teach a lesson and after it I felt a little shaky so I went home and thought oh no I’m ill again. Anyway I then remained at home on the settee for the next 3 months, as the time went on I decided I’d better face reality, I had ME something I thought previously didn’t really exist!
So I started to look into this, the more I read the worse I became. I sent off for their info and read the stories, only a minor chance of some form of recovery by doing Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, I went to the doctor got an appointment to see someone for CBT and did this to no avail.
Just to reiterate during this time I lay on the settee all day did absolutely no housework (and I like my house clean) became totally reliant on my partner and daughter for everything cooking included! I remember one day my sister phoned me and I was quite proud of myself as I had walked into the back room and put a toy away!
I then heard about “The Lightning process” so I followed this up and then my dressage trainer told me her grandson had done it when at school after he had to have 2 terms off ill and hadn’t looked back.
So I did the 3 day course with Heather at the end of June 2011 and immediately started to put the process into action and began my life again. I resumed riding and teaching, started to compete again and then my horse had to retire, I bought a new horse which entails a lot of travel and stress.
It is now 2015 I have had this horse for 2 and a half years now and we have qualified for the regional finals each year and we are now competing at Advanced level, also keeping a pony for my granddaughter and going out to shows with them almost every weekend and continuing to teach and lead an active social life.
What I learnt on The LP apart from getting my life back again has been a very useful tool for whenever I have needed to use it, which could be in a little dip in my life or nowadays more often to keep me positive when I’m competing.
Many thanks Heather
