I’m Andy Pentecost-Beck
For more than 20 years I have worked within the Natural Healing Industry. In that time I have learn’t many modalities and skillsets, from Massage, Healing, Intuitive Life Coaching, Chakra Balancing and many more along with working with a Maori Tohunga who taught me a lot about spirits, god (or the man upstairs as he said), blessing houses and moving lost spirits on to where they need to go. He also taught me to have respect for all things spiritual. I was very blessed to have this amazing man as my mentor for so many years. Unfortunately he passed away last year although he has started to work with me in spirit.
I also learned to connect to and work with the Angelic realm or my Guides and Angels. This has been a total blessing knowing that I am never alone and spirit has my back.
I love being guided by my Guides and Angels to relay messages, coaching and healing and sometimes people’s passed over loved ones pop in for a chat. When they do they can be such a healing experience and have people know that they are not alone. They get to complete things that were left unsaid so that they can move forward.
I am a mum of two awesome boys now 23 and 19 years and they have been my biggest gifts. I have learnt so much as mum.
My lovely man and I have been together almost 8 years and we were married in December last year. He is so loving, kind and supportive of everything I do. Such a different relationship to anything I had experienced in the past.
Post Natal Depression or an Awakening?
At the age of 21 I was diagnosed with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS). At 23 my partner and I decided it was time to have kids (I never knew if I would be able to have kids because of this diagnosis and was told I should start earlier rather than later, so that time was on my side) I had to have hormone tablets to regulate my cycle and after 7 months and triple dose tablets, I fell pregnant. Less than a week later, I was in hospital with excruciating abdominal pain, the Doctors thought it might be an ectopic pregnancy. They discovered that I had cysts on my ovaries, PCOS. I stopped work and had to take it easy so the cysts wouldn’t turn on my ovaries. At 18 weeks pregnant I had an operation to remove the cysts. The rest of the pregnancy was brilliant and Sidney was born on the date I had expected. At three weeks old he started experiencing colic. At 6 weeks old he had emergency surgery for bilateral hernias.
I was diagnosed with postnatal depression when he was 6 months old and in total was challenged off and on with PND for over 7 years. I went down the orthodox medicine route off and on for just over 6 years (I improved a little and stopped taking medication because I didn’t like the stigma attached to it) When Sidney was just over 3, I got pregnant naturally with my second child Bailey, I experienced depression from the time I got pregnant, which I didn’t know was possible. My moods swung terribly, one minute I was happy and the next I felt terrible.
Once I had Bailey, things slowly got harder, I kept to myself. It was worse the second time and it took me longer to seek out help. When I did it didn’t work and made me feel worse, so I stopped. When Bailey was 15 months old I changed doctors, it took the new doctors 3 months to get the medication right. I functioned every day and took care of my kids, but I couldn’t get down and play with them. It was like there was a glass wall between us. I ended up on 5 antidepressants a day. I had managed to reduce it to 4, which gave me the headspace and strength to begin to explore the natural side. Being a massage therapist at the time, and having a friend suggest it, I knew it was right for me.
I began having my chakras (energy centres of the body) balanced and to look at the emotions I had unknowingly suppressed since a child and throughout my out life. They were sitting in my energy field which I had thought I had dealt with or put them behind me and pretended they weren’t even a thing, Within 9 months of starting to have my chakras balanced on regular a basis and my willingness to look at these emotions, even though it was freaking uncomfortable at times and learning how to release them from my mental, emotional and physical body. I was able to totally come off all medication(reducing medication should always be carried out under the guidance of your medical practitioner)
Through my intuition I have come to know that for me the physical act of giving birth, unlocked emotions that I had subconsciously suppressed and I didn’t know what it was or what had happened to me. I also became super aware of energies around me including other people’s thoughts, feelings and emotions, however at that time I thought they were my own.
After researching postnatal depression over the last few years, I have also discovered that if a woman has had any kind of intervention or trauma, to get pregnant, during pregnancy or after birth; they are four times more likely to have postnatal depression and say nothing. They wanted this baby and they should just be grateful. However it’s not that simple. As much as you try and pull your socks up or get it on with it, you just can’t. I know for me, I had been successful in the banking industry, but as a mum I had very little confidence, and after everything we had been through and my focus of keeping these babies safe, I was scared I wouldn’t know what to do. I was full of fear about anything and everything. I became irrational and I was trying to be the perfect mum so my children wouldn’t leave me.
Through this experience and working with many clients in all areas of life, I know that balancing the chakras, along with with addressing the mental, emotional, physical and spirituals aspects for each person and empowering them to love, trust and know themselves and follow their awareness is the key to have the life you know is possible. You begin to see the light and heavy cloud lifts.
Please remember you are not the only one going through this, you are not alone, and please reach out and ask for help and support.
