One of the hardest lessons that I’ve had to learn throughout my spiritual journey is understanding, creating, and maintaining healthy boundaries. As an empath, I am susceptible to the energy, feelings, and emotions of others. I effortlessly feel the emotions of strangers, family members, friends, and associates. I began to experience a constant state of energetic drainage and physical fatigue. It took me a while to realize that I was carrying everyone else’s emotions, insecurities, doubts, expectations, pain, confusion, and fear all by myself. Through introspection and “get your life” meetings with my spiritual mentor, I realized that I had to learn how to create boundaries.

When my mentor presented the idea of me having to create these much-need...

Yoga greeted me in the darkest hours of my night. It creeped into my thoughts after years of severe anxiety, codependency, and debilitating fear. It moved in silence slowly coaxing me out of the traumatized skin I had made home. It taught me to listen to the voices in my head rather than fear them. This did not mean I agreed with every thought or emotion I had. I had to recognize that who I thought I was in that moment was saturated with outside influences that may or may not have satisfied my soul. Yoga helped me begin to sift through the pieces of myself to figure out which were my own and which were created by outside voices. It helped me realize that I could decide who I wanted to be, then be it.

I got to know yoga in silence. It was the firs...

How do you heal yourself? What is your favorite form of self-therapy?

I use orgasm to heal myself.

When/what was the catalyst that made you start?

I noticed that every time I had sex (either with myself or with others) that resulted in orgasm, the stress or self-doubt or disconnection from self that I was feeling before had completely faded away.

How has this form of healing helped you?

It connects me to my sensual body when the world around me is trying to shame my existence. It reminds me that I am worthy of pleasure when inner criticisms tell me that I am not enough. It creates intimacy with my lover in times when I feel isolated and alone.

What does your process look like? (Please share...

How do you heal yourself? What is your favorite form of self-therapy?

I heal myself in many ways, all are intuition-based. Whether it’s through listening or creating music instrumentals, dancing, traveling, camping in Nature, grounding, channeling and/or journaling. My favorite forms of self-therapy however, are journaling and spoken prayer.

When/what was the catalyst that made you start?

The catalyst that made me start into spirituality was when I heard God/All That Is actually tell me inside of myself not to commit suicide. I had come from an abusive and dark home environment dealing wi...

How do you heal yourself? What is your favorite form of self-therapy?

I heal myself by listening to my body and responding to what it's telling me. My favorite form of self-therapy (or when I feel my best), is when I sleep enough and allow myself time to process.
 

When/what was the catalyst that made you start?

This is a fairly new process to me—I was diagnosed with depression and generalized anxiety in the summer of last year, but I've lived with both of these conditions undiagnosed and untreated for much longer. I had recently made several large life changes (ending a long-term relationship, moving, starting a new relationship, starting a new job, starting a band) in the span...

How do you heal yourself? What is your favorite form of self-therapy?

I feel like I’m always showing compassion for myself, even when I’m not experiencing direct pain. Poetry, crystal meditation, delving deeper into my natal chart’s meanings, and learning about witchcraft have all been incredible methods for helping me embrace who I am. Another really effective, personal and beautiful way that I heal myself is crying. I’ve always been a crier; when I was in elementary school, I was so sensitive to the hurt and pain that others felt, I would just cry all the time. Every man I’ve ever cried in front of has told me to stop, but every woman and non-binary person has provided...

How do you heal yourself? What is your favorite form of self-therapy?

Anything from crystals to herbs; psychotherapy, yoga and meditation; painting, dance, water (in all forms), energy/light work,  & nature * always nature. Sound healing is resonating with me very strongly at the moment; 

- - - * I am in a place; Now; where everything is healing, everything is my medicine. That is the ‘Being’ aspect of life that I so wholesomely connect with, that we all connect with. My life, your life, our life – it’s all the same life, as we are all One. One in the same, and all there is – is Now, then the only way to heal is to stay present and Be. -- Every day is a new opportunity to heal some undiscove...

How do you heal yourself? What is your favorite form of self-therapy?

I heal myself through the various tools that I've learned throughout my 20's. Astrology has been my favorite form of self therapy because it is a filter to demystify my experience and provide insight. 

When/what was the catalyst that made you start?

When I was in my early 20's I kinda laughed at a friend who told me a story about carrying 'a pocket full of stones'. I went and tried it i put 3 pieces of citrine and 1 piece of clear quartz in my pocket and it changed my life. My posture seemed taller, my outlook brighter and it was the first time I've really recognized the nature of energy. From then, I immersed myself in...
