‘I am mentally and emotionally equipped to enjoy a prosperous and loving life. It is my birthright to deserve all good. I claim my good.’ -Power Thought Cards by Louise Hay

July 7th, 2018. On that day, I decided to cut everything out of my life that was extraneous…I committed myself to 3 months of it (all this based mainly on my intuition at the time). At that point I was suffering from the following symptoms:

  • Excessive weight I could never keep off no matter how much I’ve tried in my life (and believe me, I’ve TRIED).

  • An up and down/roller coster relationship with food (and my body) that mirrored my relationships with men…indulging and then starving myself…overall just so fearful about certain foods; and also, commitment and intimacy.

  • Chronic and debilitating lower back and hip pain that I had always just chocked up to being a bartender and something I was just meant to suffer through.

  • Nonexistent periods unless I was on the pill, which made me feel crazy and not like myself. This has been a trend my whole life. (As you might notice, a lot of my symptoms are sacral chakra related…more on that down the line…)

  • Intense unexplained guilt and shame that made it hard for me to be vulnerable and go after and receive the things that I wanted.

  • Anxiety and paranoia….never feeling safe in my own skin.

  • Exhaustion, moodiness, resentment, and all the other shitty feelings that come with being at your emotional rock bottom.

  • People pleasing…overextending myself to others in my personal life and at work…not believing I was worthy enough just as I am…giving too much at the expense of my own needs and desires and instead of asking for what I need, just assuming rejection and abandonment and letting the story of ‘I won’t be shown up for’ repeat itself over and over.

Let’s jump back to January 2016 real quick…
