Want to know what your life’s purpose could be?
What’s the greatest adversity you’ve had to endure and overcome?
Help people to heal and alleviate their suffering of that same ordeal, somehow. If only just a little. You may know how to move through it faster. You can be an inspiration.
There are approximately 7 billion people in the world. What you have been through – others are going through right now. You can help. Even if you’re not quite there yourself. You’re slightly further ahead than someone else is right now.
In healing and teaching others, we heal ourselves even more.
Connect. We live in an age where in little to no time at all – you can create connection, with the people you need to. If you can’t do it face to face – you can do it through the internet.
You might not be ready to help people in that way, you might still be healing yourself and the pain is still too much. When I first started to move through depression – I couldn’t talk about it, for fear it would engulf me again and pull me under.
So I started the page ‘Free Spirits and Hippies’ and everyday I posted uplifting, inspiring pictures. Message of peace and love and happiness. Positive vibes only, on people’s Facebook newsfeeds. That page boomed, it’s got something like 35 thousand likes – people really dig those good vibrations – and it made me smile everyday.
Later I started to make Crystal jewellery, this had helped me – and in my own way, I could help other people. It also fed my addictive personality and obsessions – as I tried to get as many different types of Gemstones, for the same intention – onto one bracelet, in an attractive way!
But I still didn’t talk about depression.
It’s only now, that I feel so much better, safe in the knowledge that as i’ve learnt so much, I can never go back.
That I feel I can even start to discuss it.
Not really my own experience of it. But how I want to help others move through it, faster, and with more support.
With the attitude and goal of ‘Wellness’.
I’m writing a book ‘101 ways to get out of depression’ or something like that.
Because there’s nothing that I didn’t try. I have given everything a go. From Sensory deprivation tanks to buying every single tincture, vitamin and immune boosting, brain chemistry balancing product on the market.
I got qualified in Reiki and I learnt NLP. I read every self help book that’s ever been written. I learnt yoga, meditation, mindfulness and the Law of Attraction.
I wanted to move into the Buddhist centre. I did spells, synced myself to the moon, connected with my angels, studied Quantum Physics, had acupuncture and attended laughter yoga. I RE-learnt the top 10 positive emotions and how to cultivate them. I learned to paint, I learned to sew.
I had massages, sat in saunas….I studied philosophy, psychology – inner child work and Jung’s ‘core-beliefs’ – along with my personality type (Infj). I came across The Chakra energy system and Crystals and absorbed everything to do with spirituality and personal growth.
I discovered I was a socialist.
I set up a business.
I tried medication. I tried becoming a runner.
There’s at least 75 things I haven’t mentioned.
I also had a toddler, chronic fatigue and an allergy to stress. I think I’ve learned most of this from bed.
I know my shit. I might not have depression any more but I know I’m definitely, obsessively nuts.
My future lies in helping stressed out people, families, mothers…with addictions and mental health..in a way that promotes wellness. I’d never have known what I was really supposed to do with my life – If I hadn’t been through the pain.
I believe we’re here to help each other – because it furthers humanity and in a way this level of pain gives rise to cultivating so much compassion within our society – it may not look like it at the moment – but that’s our job now!
We are all one!
