I was the little girl who looked forward to Halloween every year, dressed up as a witch any chance I got, and had a rock and gemstone collection under my bed since the age of 4.
I remember how I loved to be out in nature, and still do.
I've always had vivid dreams and would often "see" things before they would happen. I'm super empathic and will feel other's emotions as if I am feeling my own.
It's odd for me to talk about these aspects of my life here on my blog, because I often hid them from most people around me. I was worried I'd be shamed or rejected for my "different" tastes.
But it doesn't just start with me. My family has a long history of being "psychic." Apparently my mom's side descended from a band of traveling Romanian gypsies. Not really the topic of conversation when you want to sound "cool" to other people...
But Ancestry DNA has definately confirmed the Romanian part haha
All in all, I'm done shaming myself for something that has always come natural to me.
I was talking to my homeopath back home and she told me that all people have the ability to tap into their intuition and be psychic. It just simply depends on genetics, life circumstances and an "open-ness" to the idea.
She explained it like a computer with all these softwares running. Some people are more prone to these abilities and cultivate them and some people, usually out of fear, shut the software down.
Most men, who are naturally intuitive also, are taught by society to turn it off because it's not "masculine."
In society, any feeling that isn't deemed "normal" or "acceptable" is seen as bad, and many beautiful souls with wonderful gifts spend their whole lives running from it.
I truly believe that as humans we are both spiritual and earthly. I think we all have the ability to tap into these gifts, and I don't believe it is limited to one gender or one specific type of person. But the real difficulty comes in trying to balance both our divine nature and our daily human lives.
Just recently, I've decided to receive training to better my understanding of who I am and my gifts.
When my gifts first started to appear I was energetically drained all the time. I kept connecting with my spirit guides, and I didn't know how to create healthy boundaries to guard my energy.
I was a college student with homework, classes and activities, but I was also waking up every morning seeing spirits. I was very lost to say the least.
I felt caught between two worlds, literally.
But just recently after the passing of my uncle, I experienced something I have never experienced before.
I was able to channel information from my uncle to my mother over the phone. I started seeing all these images and getting this information I should have never been able to know. I was, after all, in France during the time leading up to his death.
I was able to give my family peace. And that was the most beautiful gift I could have ever hoped for.
It made me question my entire existence and why I am here.
No matter where you are on your own journey, please remember that you are your own guide.
When you clear the mind and tune into your soul, you will receive guidance and signs leading you in the right direction.
Whether that means you are "psychic" or not. It doesn't matter. You are wonderful just the way you are.
Sending you love and light xoxo,
I'm a true believer that there is always a blessing in a hard situation.
Such was the case when I decided to try Accutane. You can read my blog post *here all about my experience on the drug.
When I went back to my dermatologist here in France, she offered to lower me to 10 mg. I told her no. I was done with the treatment.
It's been about a month since I've stopped Accutane, and I was honestly expecting the worse.
If you've ever had bad acne you know that there is this anxiety or fear about waking up to another super painful bump coming in almost every morning.
I woke up almost everyday for the past 2 years with that as my reality.
However, since making minor and I mean super minor changes to my diet and lifestyle I've healed my skin.
Here are the tips:
1. Avoid stress, practice meditation daily
2. Cutting out all dairy products
3. Cutting out triggers such as: chocolate, coffee, nuts, alcohol (everyone's triggers are different)
4. Limiting use of cooking with oil/oily foods (cooking with mostly water!)
5. Almost zero processed/packaged foods
6. Supplements to a minimum (I only take Zinc and B12=vegan life)
7. Simple skin care routine: raw organic honey and jojoba oil (helped my skin the most!) Here's an *article on why.
8. Drinking tons of water
9. Stop picking face/zits (this stops spread of infection)
10. Sleeping at least 8 hours every night (10 is even better!)
Now, is my skin perfect? No. I don't expect it to ever be perfect. I just want to give it the tools to heal.
I don't have some unrealistic image in my head anymore, and I'm not fixed on the idea of having perfect skin.
Now that I know the alternative, and how I felt when I was on that medication, I can never imagine not making these changes.
Even though I am off the medication, I still deal with a super sore neck and aches and pains throughout my body. I may have to deal with that forever.
But now I can live with the fact that I am doing what my body needs and not what is hurting me.
Love and light xoxo,
