I've been where you are...
It’s hard to believe, even for me now, that for most of my life I felt directionless and depressed. Perpetually swinging from the highest highs to the lowest lows. I used sex, relationships, drugs, alcohol, eating, not eating, shopping, and work as ways to escape and avoid the dark, vast, void that I felt within myself. I had multiple failed suicide bids and all of my relationships were strained or non-existent. The saying goes that no man is an Island, yet that is exactly how I felt. I found myself as a baron desolate island surrounded by deep waters of emotion that I just couldn’t seem to navigate.
I was always a very perceptive and sensitive child. This showed itself in many ways, one of them being I had an uncanny abilty to always know where things were and to my parents chagrin, I would always intuit the truth of a situation with complete fearlessness. Like many Empaths, I grew up in an unhappy enviroment and also one of oppressive religious dogma. This helped me to further "turn my gifts on" as I became even more sensitive to my enviroment as a way of avoiding conflict and emotional abuse within the family home. As many who have been raised in orthodox religious surroundings, there was no freedom of mind or spirit, which is vital to a childs growth and happiness. I graduated school at 16 and found the impetus to leave my home situation shortly therafter. I didn't know what I was in search of, but I knew I hadn't yet found my truth. This lead to my family members shunning and cutting me off, even to this day, twenty years later. Having been sheltered from the outside world up until my mid teens, I was naive and unaware of the depths of my suffering. I started using drugs, alcohol and sex as a way to connect to others, and numb my pain. Trying to find my way in the world with no worldly education. As an overachiever in my early twenties I built up a solid reputation in the field of film and television and went from stylist to production designer for commercials in the ten years of my film career. At this point I was finding success financially but I was working eighteen hours a day and my health was failing, I was drinking or using drugs when I wasn't working, and eventually it caught up to me in the way of a massive nervous breakdown in 2009.
It worked for me, it can work for you.
Shortly after my major breakdown and subsequent failed suicide bid, I skeptically visited a healing psychic in Los Angeles, CA. The psychic was located in a wellness center which to me felt more honest than someone on the street asking me if I wanted my palm read. I felt in my body that the universe wasn't ready to let me go and that I had a greater purpose than I was currently fulfilling. I was desperate to find anything to alleviate the emotional pain I was in. The psychic informed me that I was an "Empath". "Yes, I 'm very empathetic!" I thought, I've always been very compassionate, always looking out for the underdog. "No" she said "you are a psychic Empath". I went home and started to explore what that meant. All those feelings, am I bipolar? Am I schizophrenic? Now I could finally put into words what I had been attuning to psychically in all of those years of confusion. What followed in my journey until now was a whole mess of learning esoteric tools and practical spirituality. I began with sobriety from drugs and alcohol, and almost two years of coaching with an Empath Life Coach of my own. I then got my certification in nutrition and holistic wellness at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition and my Certification in the Dr Usui method of Reiki. I have seen countless healers here in the United States and India for support in the fields of Energy Work, Ayurveda, Accupuncture, Nutrition, Holistic Chiropracters, Muscle Testing, Natropath, Herbalism, Past Life Regression, Hypnotism, Sound Healing, Breathwork, Therapy, Yoga, Tarot, Massage, Cranio Sacral, Astrology, Shamans and Psychic Mediums. In the pursuit of my own personal healing, I found what works for me to be an amalgamation of many modalities. The healer heals themselves first and foremost. As a healing practitioner it is my goal to empower my cleints as their own best healers. By channeling healing and information they need I help to support them in this, and many have gone on to become coaches and energy healers themselves. The goal with my sessions is not to come and see me indefinatley. I work to set my clients on the path to healing so that they see results through accountability and support with short term goals and long term results.
I only practice what I know, and what I have direct experience in healing for me personally. This makes it my pleasure to look at my clients when they are having a difficult time, and be able to say honestly, "I healed it, and I believe you can too". I'm a prime example of a life lost then built back into a life of purpose, clarity and fulfillment. It can be hard to invest time, energy and resources into our self care and self love. Fear always leads with obstacles. If you are like me in anyway, you know that the investment you make in your health and happiness, is the only thing truly worth investing in. Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions, I'm am here in service to your healing.
