29. Lorah Gerald; "The Adopted Chameleon"
21st September 2021
Hello! My name is Lorah Gerald. I am a same race, domestic, Baby Scoop Era, preRoe adoptee. I post as The Adopted Chameleon on Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, Twitter, Patreon and Pinterest. I started these pages after reunion with my biological family. Reunion was a rollercoaster of emotions. It opened up feelings I had suppressed. I found writing and being creative was therapeutic. My pages connected me with others that were experiencing adoption trauma. Since that time I have been educating people on the trauma of adoption and how we can help heal ourselves.
To better deal with my own trauma, I became a certified kundalini yoga instructor, TIYT-Trauma Informed Yoga Therapy instructor, and Reiki Master. With my training in trauma, yoga therapy and energy healing, I share these tools online and in person in my weekly yoga classes and workshops. Working with these techniques, I have learned to better understand my own trauma and how to help others in their path to be the best version of themselves.
When we heal ourselves, we heal the world.
Having worked for Whole Foods Market for almost 7 years as their Marketing Team Leader, I relearned what whole, unprocessed food was. I enjoyed hosting many cooking classes, and healthy eating events, in turn, I cleaned up my own diet. When I was young, my adoptive parents and I grew our own food. Food is important to our physical and mental well-being. I learned what foods to eat for optimal health.
I was born with abilities that allow me to see/feel/hear things that other people may not. I found out after reunion with my siblings, that a strong intuition ran in my genetic family on both sides, as well as with my adoptive mother. My intuition and training, are both used to help others along their journey.
Using all these tools, I have helped myself manage the trauma that adoption caused me. I had some life-changing events that have sent me on this path. This healing power lies within all of us. I will share my knowledge and training, to help you unleash your own healing power.
