When first starting off on my healing journey, it took all I had to be able to focus on my mental and emotional wellbeing. I had little time and energy to focus on other areas of my life. Had a great support team in form of therapist and teachers. They encourage a holistic approach to healing. Engaging mind, body and spirit supported me while I worked on building a foundation for my life. I was picking up the pieces of many poor decisions made through substance abuse and untreated mental health issues. I committed to running, therapy and engaging school which had always been a strength of mine. In my schooling, I learned about spiritual principles and techniques that I now share with others. I supported me in learning about intention, affirmations and meditation. These spiritual techniques supported me as I sifted through limiting beliefs about myself, others and the world. The combination of mind, body and spirit strengthened the authentic piece of myself, and I became less identified with the ego. My perspective started to shift from staying connected to the old me and I became dedicated to this new conscious way of being. It all started with the doing of activities that supported my mind, body and spirit. I kept doing the next best choice that supported my wellbeing. A strong self-nurturing practice is essential to the healing process whether you are just beginning or have been on the journey for a long time.
