A sketch of an unhappy looking woman.

Reading Time: 4 minutes I’ll never forget the day I felt something inside my mind break. It was the day after the Manchester Half Marathon. Physically, I was the strongest I’d been in months; exhausted, yes, muscles screaming in pain, yes, yes, and yes, but I’d smashed my personal best and felt exhilarated. It was October, 2016. It was […]

An abstract painting: bright orange and yellow, broadstrokes.

Reading Time: 5 minutes Fourteen weeks migraine free, then bam! Over the weekend I was struck with a migraine: a day and a half of pain and puke. “This is painful” I tell myself. I allow myself to feel it and accept that yes, it’s unpleasant; adding a reminder: that it too shall pass. That’s unlike last year, from […]

A collage featuring a woman facing the eclipsed moon with a snake wrapped around her.

Reading Time: 6 minutes Often the one person you’re stuck with for life (you), is also the most mistreated and neglected (by you). Let’s dive right in, shall we? I’ll begin by explaining what I mean by self-abuse. Abuse, as per Google, is defined as treating someone “with cruelty or violence, regularly or repeatedly.” Self-abuse is thus the act […]

An abstract painting of a sacred symbol centering a temple.

Reading Time: 6 minutes Miami—back to its vibrant self, but dead to me. I wanted to write a follow-up to my initial relocation therapy visioning, and I tried; depressingly, I found it impossible to discuss my trip without tripping into pandemic surrealism—none of us want to hear about that right now—so I left. That reduction reads like a joke, […]

A drawing of a dark man with a white man in his chest, who in turn has a red door in his.

Reading Time: 8 minutes Aromas can captivate the soul and bring us so many memories. Memories of joy, hurt and those that have healed my spirit. I have, I admit, took a great risk to hold onto the aroma that reminds me of love, love that only my grandmother could give me. Saying goodbye is never easy, especially if […]

Reading Time: 6 minutes There is no soft way to put it into words when you have been sexually abused as a child, how that defined your sexuality and messed up your perception of friendship and intimacy. You can only become aware of it, accept it, hate it, hate everyone, use people, feel guilty about it, start the pattern […]

A blurry painting of a woman changing in what appears to be a locker room.

Reading Time: 8 minutes Working Together in Understanding the Inner You It’s quite something if you don’t want to nourish yourself anymore, if you deprive yourself from your daily needs. When you feel the inevitable need to control yourself in such extreme ways, if you starve yourself, something must be haunting you so deeply that you aren’t able to […]

Reading Time: 3 minutes Every day, Reiki practitioners are encouraged to sit in meditation with their hands in Gassho (Anjali Mudra or Prayer Position) and recite the certain principles aloud or to themselves. Just for today… Do not be angry. Do not be worried. Respect your teachers. Do your work diligently. Be grateful. Be kind. These principles passed down […]

A painting of a woman relaxing on a sofa.

Reading Time: 4 minutes “Relax. Just do it.” It’s easier said than done for the majority of the world population that is living in a globalized, stress-based society. Stress is one of the biggest modern epidemics and its damaging effects on people’s health and immune system are widespread all around the planet. With the immensely increasing number of burn […]

A painting of a woman about to dive, and another woman mid-leap, watched by a group of three in the foreground.

Reading Time: 4 minutes Abuse Abuser – Audrey Michelle Once upon a time I felt the beauty of an entangled existence As another body coated my soul with the sweat of true acceptance It soaked into my needy pores Disease infected through its absorption Constantly intoxicated by new found spirituality You were my prince And I, sir Was your […]
