The last few years have been full of deep sadness for me. I had to go through a process of letting go of what I thought I knew and allow myself to go within to find my self again. I allowed other people’s actions to hurt me, I’m not one to fight. But by not fighting for me, I became my own victim. I held back from speaking my truth, this not only lead to depression but I became very sick, my body was pissed off and I knew I had to listen to all the emotions I had pushed way down in my gut. I know I should have told some people to fuck off! I knew that if I didn’t learn how to process my emotions in a healthy way, this would kill me. I healed my body, heart, mind and soul. It took me about a year of not taking on stress, healing through meditation, essential oils, herbs, healing foods, walks in nature and finding true friends. The sun is out and shining every day in my heart now, I’m the happiest I’ve ever been! If their was one thing you could do every day to help you cultivate a deeper connection to you and the world around you, I would say take time to pause, listen and feel. It took me becoming very sick to where I was forced to listen. Our thoughts are the products of our emotions and our emotions are the products of what our body expresses. Listen!
