Returning to the Ways of Avalon, Atlantis, Lemuria. Magickal Community
I know for a fact in my life this was very much true. I had struggled with issues and it wasn't until I started down the spiritual path and started taking my own health into my own hands, that I can now say that I am clean.
I was on different drugs for things like anxiety, blood pressure, and even towards the end, a diabetic drug.
I smoked and drank heavily and even was a heavy pot user.
I started stopping everything back in 2010.
I gave it all up.
Because I chose to though. I just made that decision that I didn't want to be this person anymore.
We are all at choice in this life. And by people telling their stories and us really looking at our health and mental health issues, will others see what we did and then if they want, choose to change their lives.
I am never ever going to deny how hard it was.
It was brutal. Cigarettes are a serious addiction in themselves. And alcohol is crazy addictive. Dope is very hard. I was surprised because I had really felt that I could quit at any time. But it was very difficult.
The prescription drug addiction was hard because I also was breaking down the paridgam that I needed a doctor to be in control of my own health. When we step out of mainstream even our own minds struggle.
So yes, it really is walking in our own footsteps towards becoming our own shaman.
I am very proud of myself for doing what I have done. And I am blessed to be able to talk about it with pride and not shame.
It is a journey and to be truthful I very rarely desire or crave for any of it. Why? Because I healed why I was using.
I found a way to love myself enough to fill the voids. I listened to my own stories and my own hurts. I became my own support system.
I learned that inside of me was everything I was needing.
Over the past 2 years I have had very many users come along on my path and ask for help. I helped only by sharing my story. I allowed them the freedom to know that whatever they chose was their own personal choice.
Happy to say they are cleaning and clearing and on their own journey now.
The path of the own personal shaman is going to be different for each of us because the reason we came to be an addict is always different for example. We may become healers, or teachers or artists. But in the end we are our own personal shaman.
I hope more talking about addiction and mental health becomes more mainstream. I send nothing but the best to all struggling and hope that they see in my message that anything is possible.
Trust me, this really is a magikal world!
Whatever you wish you shall receive. Here is wishing you the best.
