✨Another week of training, done.
I realize that I don’t share much of what I do on here, and that’s my edge. The space right outside my comfort zone. I like to share my expanded insights, but offering my services, or the messy reality that got me to those insights feels scary. I let clients flow to me through word of mouth, but that can feel limiting at times, too.
After 4 years of energy healing, I chose to continue my training in group facilitation and 1:1 integrated counselling.
When I started this path 5 years ago I was an active drug addict, I had no idea why I was drawn to energy work and I openly scoffed at it. In my first year a student asked me wtf I was doing there, because of how closed + disinterested I was. I didn’t believe in it, and, a part of me knew it was exactly what I needed.
Connection. That’s what called me there, it’s what kept me there, and now it’s the only guidance I follow.
I had no intention of being a practitioner. I was there to heal, to feel better, to feel anything. Finally dealing with the trauma of my little 8 year old self watching her father die abruptly and dramatically, acknowledging the physical abuse I went through, processing my strict catholic imprinting; It helped me gain compassion for my choices, my addictions, my resistance, my escapism. I even thanked those choices.
At school we are taught that our wound is our greatest gift. It took me a while to figure that one out. I thank my pain because those deep wells are now the vessels for my love. My capacity to hold another. My vocation has been birthed from that pain, and there is nothing that fulfills me more than seeing my clients heal and expand.
I am a healer, I am a supporter, and I am figuring my shit out just like the rest of us. The hard part of this training isn't the “content”. It isn't the readings and the case studies. It isn't even the facilitation with clients. The hard part, the unseen part, is the dealing with my own shit. Being radically honest. It’s never assuming I’m “done”. It’s reaching into my messy pain and looking at it in its beat up face - then, loving the shit out of it. Honouring it. The same way I honour my clients.
💕Stay soft. Stay open.
Helichrysum is THE dream oil for highly sensitive empaths. ✨
It even feels sacred showing up here to talk about it.
I’m completely in love with this oil; it’s my all time favorite, hands down, by a mile. And I really believe that’s true because I am a highly sensitive empath with quite an internal collection of trauma and pain.
Helichrysum removes emotional pain quickly and effortlessly. It aids “the walking wounded,” those of us with a history of difficult life circumstances, trauma, addiction, loss or abuse. (Think: chronic pain, narcissistic abuse, etc.) It offers powerful spiritual support to the wounded soul, bestowing strength and resilience and the ability to go on living despite past (or present) difficulties. 💗
Helichrysum has a powerful relationship with the sun. It restores our confidence in life and in ourselves. It imbues within us joy, fervor and hope for living when we can’t access that for ourselves. ☀️
Helichrysum helps us to have gratitude for our trials. (This is talked about a lot, and even fairly easy to intellectualize, but to feel the lightness in our veins and cells and body . . . that’s another thing altogether. That’s embodiment. That’s a massive, healing thing.) It helps us see that were we not wounded we would never have sought healing, and set into motion vital and deep spiritual transformation.
Helichrysum lends us warrior spirit so that we may face our darknesses with courage and determination. It brings hope to the most discouraged of souls and life to those in need of rebirth. ✨☀️🌸✨
Best usage is to inhale deeply as often as possible, but ideally: place 1-3 drops over your heart and rub in a clockwise motion. You will feel these things immediately. 💝 It’s so, so beautiful.
Note that therapeutic-grade Helichrysum is not cheap, and only comes in 5mL size. But this oil is special. This oil is truly magical. And if, in your deepest heart, you resonate with the type of pain described here, I can’t recommend it enough. It’s mending, and gentle and true, and there’s nothing else like it, anywhere. 💗
Hop on the link in my bio if you’re feeling called to it or, of course, DM me with any questions.
Are you surrounding yourself by people who lift you up ⠀
Or people who bring you down ⠀
Look at your circle. The five people you surround yourself with the most. ⠀
We can often absorb the energy of others so it’s important to understand what energy you are surrounding yourself with. ⠀
Are the people around you supporting your dreams Are they encouraging you to keep going Do you often feel positive support Or just positivity in general from these people ⠀
Remember it’s not selfish to want to heal and live a more positive life. Sometimes that takes going against what others around you are saying. Sometimes during this process we have to step away from the people in our circle and see what those in that circle are bringing to our life. ⠀
We sometimes have to check ourselves as well. ⠀
Are you lifting others up Are you lifting yourself up ⠀
That part of you may need healing as well and that’s ok too. ⠀

I am not alone
in the myriad of lives that touched my soul
I leave pieces of the ways of old
to surrender into this being
to yield into the paths of the whole
to return and turn
to the wisdom of the ages
found only in love
