I found new ways of self care that , if before the breakdown I would have never found. First, I have developed a HUGE sensitivity to coffee. It makes me quite ill now if I have more than one to two cups a day. My body is still detoxing, yet I am craving gentler foods now, my tea is now slowly steeped and I love it more. I can actually breath deep before I sip! ( who knew!!)
My heart gained a new level of hope I needed. I am working hard to find a way to afford a home and circumstances keep presenting themselves for me to sell more soap( thehousethatsoapbuilt.com) and share about my book, Building Blocks of Recovery. ( PS people love my book and I just found out it is being used in a treatment center!) I have shared my products and dreams with people and they understood my dream! I needed that support, that my dream makes sense and could be sustainable. The validation has been wonderful. ( I am still needing a supporter in this real estate market, but my dream feels so much closer!)
Spiritually, well, some of the parts I won't put here but some have been incredible! In my work, people have asked me if I am an empath.....no, I think I am just listening at a different level. I am also crystallizing my beliefs in yoga and in prayer. It has been beautiful!
My work is becoming clearer. I was a workshop leader at a conference as well as a Keynote speaker. It was my first time but I have to tell you, I think that I did ok. I love teaching upcoming counselors how to manage their stress and care for clients. Also I have been doing some volunteer work for an organization that I have come to appreciate, they help formerly incarcerated individuals to get a second chance through education and housing. I would have never had the courage to reach out until I leaned deeply into my mat to find the answers.
Yes, I will be doing this again. It was amazing. I hope you will join me in the best way you can. My hope is that you will gain the joy I and two of the others have found in this practice.
