Lately, I’ve been called more strongly to turn my hurt into my gifts.
My experiences into a lighthouse of sorts, for others in search of answers and clarity.
And while I don’t (expect myself to) hold all the answers or always have helpful or suitable solutions, it makes life rich to have these truthful connections and to come together to explore ways to unlock what’s felt stuck, off, or out of alignment.
Mental health issues are difficult, and confusing.
They also widely unacknowlegded and underestimated in the way that they offer wonderful insights and provide a guide for exploring your unique gifts and what ways you have found to keep yourself afloat through challenging times.
So don’t blame or shoot the messenger, and get stuck in trying to cover up what feels heavy and at times too dark to carry, rather… explore the message.
– What are you not able or willing to hear?
– What is your inner child trying to tell you?
– Will you take her/him/it serious?
– Can you find a sense of gratitude for the things that are arising, for they are helping you become an even more courageous, whole and compassionate being?
Last night I cried while in bed, thinking of all the fierce and incredible people in my life who are giving away so much of their power.
Who feel alone, isolated, or completely stuck.
I know too well what that’s like, for I have lived that way for most of my life – and at times still default to this behaviour.
The other day I was being hard on myself and the position in which I find myself in life today, and was reminded by a friend… that it’s ok.
And it truly is.
I am exactly where I am meant to be.
I missed a lot of things that others got to experience earlier on in life, while I was caught up in treatment centers, hospital stays, or in crisis and isolation.
I came to realize that I ‘wasted’ a third of my life, if not half, to being caught up in an eating disorder, a state of depression and anxiety. For even when the external signs slowly become invisible to others, the internal fight may be raging even louder.
Most days I am on the good side with this, some days I am not.
A need to control my body, my environment, my path, is the first that arises in times of uncertainty or stress.
Quite a paradox for a traveller who’s been around the world multiple times over the past 14 years, with nothing more than a bag of familiarity swinged onto her back.
It’s through my own struggles and healing and all who I encounter that are facing adversity that I feel so incredibly driven to change the course of my life – or rather, follow and surrender into my ultimate dharma – and focus on being mighty succesful at running my business and serving at large.
So that I can have the resources to create a bigger impact.
So that I can have more influence and help finance better & more holistic options for those struggling with eating disorders and other mental health issues.
So that I can offer support for more awareness and prevention, where possible.
To bring together genius health care providers and alternative practitioners (I don’t expect myself to know, learn, or do all, rather I wish to create the space and circumstances for this vision to come into being) and create a more complete chain of care and love.
Welcoming others with wide open arms onto a path to find a home within.
The most powerful gift to yourself, to many people I work with, and to fuel this vision and purpose, is to allow me to bless your household with the purest available essential oils on the market today. This is the best and most aligned way I know how to make happen what I’ve set my mind and heart to in this lifetime.
You might not yet know what you’re up for or what these oils can even do for you.. but I will help you as you figure that out for yourself and as I hold on to a big vision for all of us.
One that beats borders, blockages, and feeling alone or helpless on your path. Whether personally or professionally, there’s space, depth, and service to explore.
I know that you will be amazed.
I know that these oils will transform you.
For I have seen it in others, and have experienced it myself. Over and over and over again.
Even financially, if you let them.
(Let’s let them!)
At a pace that supports you, for nature is clever in her ways.
She provides what we need, when we need it.
We just need to reach out.
Know that there is light and hope.
Be part of sharing it when you have some extra to give.
Be willing to open yourself if you are in need to receive.
That’s how we create a world and life worth living (in).
Lean into the option that there are better ways.
And please know that you can always reach out to me if you are having a hard time.
I might not have a quick, or magical, solution.
But I have a big as heart, and it has a lot of soft and well-cushioned space, to hold you – both in darkness and in light.
Please comment or message me if this resonates.
& Thank you, for witnessing me, through my emptiness and fullness.
During this ongoing process of becoming.
I know in the depths of my being that I am magic – and so are you! – , and I am breathing deeply into the knowing that there is a lot of great work to be done.
Now, together, let’s make it so. <3
