This week on KOWS Wise Woman Storytime, my guest was Lynn Kwitt. Let me tell you a little about the story she told.
Imagine yourself a young child and think what would it look like and feel like to grow up unable to participate in childhood games and activities because the right side of your body just didn’t move the same way your left side did.
What would it be like for you, bright and smart as you were, to not be able to clearly express yourself because it took you longer to articulate your thoughts and say your words? And what would it be like to be called a “Retard” and to be constantly bullied as your differences became the target of abusive and cruel behaviors and taunts?
And what would it be like to have this physical deficit and have absolutely no idea why you were so different and what caused it?
When my guest today, Lynn Kwitt was born with the umbilical cord wrapped around her neck 3 times, no one at the time had any idea of what this young baby had already suffered in utero. It wasn’t until Lynn was 8 months old that a rigidity set into her body ultimately limiting movement and sensation on her entire right side. No one had answers or solutions. Her mother overprotected her; Lynn self-isolated and stayed to herself and as you can imagine this young child became extremely self conscious.
For many people an early beginning like this could lead to a complete shutdown and withdrawal from the world. But not Lynn. Instead of giving up, Lynn eventually sought answers and ways to give new life to her body and spirit as she began a lifelong quest to understand her condition and to find healing and peace. Along the way, she became her own healer and now offers hope and healing to others through the many healing modalities that changed her life.
I invite you to listen to Lynn’s story.
