The Healing Journey is Not a Game

This isn’t love and light; it’s facing fear, pain and your worst nightmares in the shadows where you’re at your most vulnerable. Are you ready to play?

A red heart shaped candle surrounded by green stones.

I didn’t have a plan B when I quit the job that was soul sucking my life away. I just didn’t have a choice. I wanted change but I wasn’t ready to change. It didn’t matter whether I was ready or not, I had to go with the flow of the Universe because she knows best and she had already chose for me.

The same thing that I warn people of, that the healing journey is not one to be taken lightly, is the same thing tripping me up right now. You never know where this journey will take you.

The part of this that causes pain, is when we have emotional or familial attachments to people who’s vibration doesn’t resonate with ours, then it hurts when they are naturally pulled away. But there can be no other way.

Self love is not a game. No one ever teaches us these things. We live in a capitalist society that only encourages…
