My Life As A Dyslexic by Ema Drouillard
Who Wants To Be Normal Anyway?
In 1988 I was a photographer for the Right One, one of the first video dating services. My job was to photograph the new members for five images on a page. From this page people would pull the members video to view. It was a fun job.
One morning as I was walking up the stairs with my gear, I took a fall on the stairs. That fall resulted in neck surgery and a very long recovery. During this recovery all the systems I had put in place to assist me in operating in my life, fell apart as well. Loving friends moved my belongings while I was in the hospital to a more suitable place to recover. My car was sold and gone. For me everything was moved and changed. I was also medicated and in a great deal of non-stop pain. My dyslexic was really in my face and without my systems in place, I was lost.
During this long recovery I did something most dyslexic people would never approach. I wrote an article about my dyslexia and submitted it to the Reader’s Digest for publication. It took a computer and many friends to review it before it was ready for submission. Once submitted to my surprise and delight they published the article in 1989. I have recently come across the pages I submitted to the Reader’s Digest and have included the article here for you, My Life As A Dyslexic. In the article I share my life experience up to that time with dyslexia.
Today dyslexia is more familiar to people but still many families are affected and there is always room for understanding, clarity and information. Recently HBO created a documentary film, The Big Picture: Rethinking Dyslexia. Well done and well worth the view. Share with anyone you know that may benefit from the information. The more the dyslexic understands about dyslexia the more fully they can live their unique experience. Which can be rich and full.
In my coaching practice I enjoy working with people that are dyslexic, highly sensitive and empaths as these are my personal experience as well. Call today! 415-409-9264.
Having a Human Design reading with Ema is all about learning the mechanics of being the best you, based on how you were designed to operate. She shares with you the key information that is like an "instruction manual" for living with the most ease in your life. It can also help you understand the similarities and differences with your loved ones, which can support fluidity in relationships based on design... She's compassionate, knowledgeable, fun, and tuned-in. I highly recommend working with her.
Finding Ema was like finding a gem. She helped me to understand my complex nature, and was able to relate the information to me on a very deep and human level. She has a very dynamic body of knowledge and tools that enable her to adapt to my complex needs and problems. I have had therapists and different teachers over the years, but there is usually a professional boundary which is necessary to protect the worker's energy reserves. However, Ema is different in that she has found ways to be able to relate her incredibly healing compassion without putting up walls while maintaining professional boundaries. She has an enormous heart and although she is highly qualified for a professional relationship, I consider her like family.
As a life coach Ema is focused, extremely skilled, and genuinely invested in my personal fulfillment! Her detailed information has clarified perceptions I have stored in my heart and mind for a lifetime even after previous counseling. Her capacity to hold and simply communicate the information flow is so impressive. But most important to me is her guidance in applying this to my life moving forward. So glad I entrusted Ema with my inner world.
Thank you, Ema, for introducing me to my Human Design. It was very helpful to learn that as a Projector, I should wait for the invitation that recognizes my unique qualities before entering into a relationship or situation, to avoid feeling resentful or bitter later on. Learning to wait rather than initiate is life changing! BL
I had a great Human Design reading with Ema recently. I was surprised by some of the insights she revealed to me, many of which I had never heard before even after many readings of other kinds.
She told me things about my innate personality that helped me make sense out of challenges I have, and put them in perspective.
I would highly recommend Ema's readings for anyone looking for deeper self-understanding and expression.
