Our Hurricane Survival Story (Documentary)

spirituality trauma & mental health Sep 20, 2018

This was the hurricane through our eyes...

As many have, I’ve carried this story for a year. I know now, the absolute power of emotions on our physical body. It’s been an absolute rollercoaster.

The mind, body, and soul are one. At this time last year, the course of our lives changed forever. Life was brought to a standstill in Dominica.

I am fully letting go as I close a very special chapter of my life, and open a completely different book as I rebirth into this new life. Healing requires giving it a voice and having a safe space for that voice to be heard. Here, we share our voice.

Our home, business, livelihood, and community were destroyed. Our family; husband, two small children, and I survived the storm in our cob home, sheltered under a wooden closet while our house flooded and our roof was forcefully ripped off. We were sitting in the dark not knowing if we would come out alive.

With my heart and soul, I share the story here. This is the hurricane through our eyes, my tribute to the anniversary of Hurricane Maria. Thank you for helping us all grow and for showing us the strength and resilience of the human spirit.

Now, I am free of you Maria.
