I feel compelled to write this post because I have been noticing an inner and outer shift when it comes to my healing and wellbeing. Holistic healing and clean eating as a lifestyle has been knocking on my door lately. I have had numerous guests on my podcast that are in this field – whether it’s nutrition or energy healing. I have become a member at Saffron & Sage where I receive Reiki once a month and other forms of energy healing. I purchased essential oils and rely on them throughout the day to ground me and fill me with happiness. I even went out and bought CBD oil to treat my anxiety which has been working wonders.
And then today, as I sat in my podcasting studio interviewing the founder of the clean beauty living boutique, Shop Good (episode airs next week), I got hit with a ton of bricks. Here I was, talking about healing and engaging in a conversation where healing came holistically and energetically, when it hit me: how many times can I be faced with this topic and not realize that it is time to be fully living this way myself?
Call it divine intervention, an “a-ha” moment, a revelation, or a realization – the verdict was in: I am meant to walk down a holistic path when it comes to my healing process. Having been rooted in the therapy and psychiatry world for twelve years, something has always been missing. There was something I wasn’t getting from these traditional and clinical worlds that I needed.
Enter: holistic healing.
Whether I treat myself to more reiki, grow my essential oil collection, or tap into my own intuition and energy, I know one thing to be certain: this is what I am supposed to be doing right now. My track has lead me here and it’s been smacking me on my head for about six months now.
I put practicing holistic therapies on my New Year’s Resolution list making the action I need to take so obvious.
SO, I am making the commitment to explore this arena further and will definitely be reporting back. Living with bipolar disorder, I am always on the lookout for different healing modalities. I think fully immersing myself in the holistic and natural sphere is going to help immensely.
Sometimes life shows you exactly where to head. Call it my intuition, but this where I am being pulled and so this is where I will gladly go.
