“They just tied us on the bed and we were circumcised”, Chanel Ayan in week’s episode.
Chanel Ayan was seen disclosing a very big information piece related to her past on the Real Housewives of Dubai in the current week episode.
It was during the hypnotherapy session that Chanel, in tears, brought forward her past. She talked about how she, along with her older sister, got circumcised at a young age and that her family, they have no idea about the same.
Holding Dr. Sara Al-Madani’s hand, Chanel brought an important piece of her past in front of the therapist. “At 5-years-old, my aunt and my grandma came to pick us up to take us to another town,” Chanel revealed.
“And then the next morning at 6 a.m., I didn’t know where I was going whatsoever and then they took us to this man’s house and they just tied us on the bed and we were circumcised,” they added.
Was this the first time that Chanel Ayan revealed something so private?
No. The born-in Kenya model, Chanel Ayan, previously too shared a lot of details about the traumatic upbringing she had. She also talked about how her father used to beat her. However, it is for the first time that Chanel decided to go further into the specifics of her abuse and her sufferings.
“I don’t have a lot of memories because I feel like I block things,” Chanel said.
Chanel, the mother of the 20-year-old son named Taj, also recalled her memories of growing up at her home with siblings, parents and tears from her mom.
“The crying, the sadness, the beatings,” Chanel said, holding the hand of Sara and weeping.
“That’s what I remember. A lot of pain,” she added.
Unpacking of previous trauma
While the therapist tried to unpack her previous trauma of Chanel, she started going deeper into the description of the emotional and physical wounds.
She said, “We were tied in the legs.” She added, we “Couldn’t pee. Couldn’t move. When we needed to pee, they would carry us and put us on the grass. I just didn’t understand what the hell was going on whatsoever and my mom didn’t know that that was happening to us.”
Sara was the one who suggested initially the idea of attending the hypnotherapy session. She thought the revelation could become a part of why Chanel finds it troubling when meshing with the group ladies.
With a lot coming ahead, Sara tried to explain the behavior of Chanel, saying, “This explains about her behavior and how she is.” She even noted that all of it would be helpful for making Chanel one better version.
Chanel detailed information about Circumcision
Due to the vaginal part sewn up and shut, Ayan was required to get the circumcision fixed medically. It happened after she met her husband, Christopher. At that time, Chanel went to the doctor to get it fixed and so that she could have an intimate relationship with her husband.
“I couldn’t have sex,” said Chanel, adding “And then I had to wait until I healed.”
Even after all the hardships, it was revealed that Chanel did her best for finding that silver lining in it all.
“I’ve tried to understand,” Chanel confessed.
“The reason that I’m talking about it is to bring awareness to it and I want people to understand this happens every single day, and if that’s my mission, maybe that’s what I should be doing”, she added.
Chanel was also seen revealing the ladies that her father even tried selling her in the marriage at the age of 14, but his attempts were unsuccessful as her sister protected her.
“I actually love life, that is the sad part,” Chanel said.
“I like to be happy. I have a good family, so I’m not going to say I’m a victim because I really am not. I have a good life. These are just the saddest things in my life, but I have a good life,” she added.
A break up from the past traumas
After having a breakdown from past traumas, the aspect of hypnotherapy finally began. Chanel relaxed while Dr. Cavanagh asked Chanel for standing in the garden and envisioning the majestic life tree of hers.
The doctor even asked her for breaking down those trees while her eyes were closed, and it was after a while that Chanel seemed better.
Chanel said, “I feel lighter.”
“It’s like the mountain is off my shoulder. I’m starting to heal. I’m starting to understand that I trusted people that hurt me, and they don’t have power over me anymore,” she added.
At the conclusion of the session, it was revealed by Chanel that she found the forgiveness for all those who hurt her, finally.
“I’ve chosen, for the first time in my life, to forgive them and accept what happened to me,” Chanel said, adding, “I still have a lot of life and I still have a lot of love to give to myself.”
