Hi! My name is Liesl Frank and this is my storyLFHK2018-01-06T12:45:53+00:00
So you are considering Kinesiology and you are considering me. And you want to get a feel of exactly who is Liesl Frank? Why should I trust her with my healing journey? So I will share with you who I am and what I have gone through and why I love Kinesiology so much.
I was born in Sydney and grew up in the country. Firstly, in a small village (pop. 200) for my primary school years and then for my high school years, I lived in a rural country town (pop. 16,000) and during that time I lived in Thailand for a year on exchange. During my 12 years of schooling (excluding Thailand) I was bullied and ostracised for ten of them. How did this affect me? I had zero self-esteem, zero confidence, I felt completely unaccepted and believed that no one would want to be friends with me. I hid it all behind a “bright smile” like I had been taught to. The excellent advice of the 70’s and 80’s (not) – “just pretend like it isn’t affecting you”
And I continued to suffer
I have memory of “a moment in time” that has always stuck with me. It was in 1995 and I was sitting in my lounge room with my two flatmates. And I remember thinking to myself that I wish that you could just ask your friends for recommendationsfor a good psychiatrist like you would a hairdresser or a car mechanic. But because I was too embarrassed back then to share my problems with my friends, I continued to suffer in silence for another eight years.
My Breaking Point
It all came to a head in 2003. I was working in Advertising and I was so stressed and so under pressure because I had an underlying fear of I’m not good enough. I was working 6o hours a week, every week and 20 of those hours were unpaid overtime (every week). I was lying to my partnersaying that I was shopping on a Saturday, when what I was really doing was going into work, to work even more over-time. Even with all of this stress, I still hadn’t reached breaking point.
My breaking point was after a lunch with a friend who was a sales rep for one of the magazines. I took the information that he gave me about low sales, to negotiate a better deal on the campaign that I was working on. And in that moment, I thought to myself “Who am I? The old Liesl would never do anything like that. How did I get to this place?” I felt like that my true self had stretched so far away from my body, like a stretched rubber band – that I was in danger of snapping
It was in that moment that I decided – that I had to make myself a priority. I had to find my way back to my true self. And I had to see it the whole way through. I made myself a promise that I would continue on my healing journey until I had cleared all of my baggage.
More about me . . .
If you would like to know more about me and what I have gone through. How I went from zero self esteem to totally rocking belief in myself.
I recently did a radio interview for Mental Health Week. I share what it was like for me growing up feeling like an outcast. Plus you get to see some truly daggy photos of me from my earlier years 😉
I had been introduced to Kinesiology by my flatmate in 1996 as she was using me as her guinea pig as she was learning the technique. And I remember being blown away by the fact that the cause of my sore shoulder was a result of me being angry at my then boyfriend.
I thought to myself, this is what I want. I want a natural, intuitive method of healing myself that would remove all of my negative thoughts and feelings. I liked the concept of my body healing itself.
How has Kinesiology helped me?
How has Kinesiology helped me? In so so many ways:
I was bullied all throughout my primary and high school years and by several bosses in the workplace. This lead to crippling self-esteem / self-confidence issues.
I was always so concerned with what other people thought of me. I was desperate to be liked, and I would keep on changing my personality trying to figure out which one would make me acceptable to others.
I grew up believing that I was unworthy. Unworthy of love, unworthy of friendship, unworthy of having good things happen to me, unworthy of achieving what I wanted in life.
I was sexually assaulted when I was 7 and again when I was 16 years old. Both of these incidents had a major impact on how I behaved in relationships.
As a result of all of the above, my head was a mess. I was constantly having negative thoughts rattle around in my head all day long.
My life now? Well . . . .
I have never felt freer in my whole life. I have found and am living my life’s purpose. And every day my soul and heart sings with joy.
My confidence is rock solid.
I am no longer a victim of / trapped or effected by my past
I am full of self-love
I know my value and my worth
I know that I am deserving of good things in life
I have awoken to a spiritual journey beyond my wildest dreams
In 2010, I decided that I wanted to help other people to be able to leave their baggage behind and to realise their dreams. So I studied a dual Diploma in “Holistic Kinesiology” & “Mind Body Medicine” at the College of Complementary Medicine.
And it was the best decision that I ever made. I love my job. I love seeing my clients transform their lives. Every day I go to work is a blessing. So . . .
If you are tired of feeling numb?
If you are tired of feeling stressed?
If you are tired of not feeling good enough?
If you are tired of life not going your way?
If you are tired of not knowing what you want to do in life?
Then it is possible for you to take control and change your life. Then Kinesiology is for you.
