Depression is drowning in an ocean of despair while another part of you is cutting away your lifeline that would keep you from drowning. Can you imagine how frightening that could be? Imagine fighting that fight every day. Depression can come and go for me. I have good days, bad days, and really, really bad … Read more Depression: You Don’t Have to Walk Alone
Hey everyone. I’m gonna take a step back from mental health to talk about this book I just finished reading called Wonder Woman: Warbringer by Leigh Bardugo. I promise I will not spoil it.

I initially created this blog to share my mental health experiences with others. I hoped to seek a connection with others, break the stigma against mental health issues, and start conversations about topics such as self-harm and depression. However, all of my blogs neglect something that I believe is absolutely important for those with mental … Read more Supporting your Friend with Mental Health Issues
As someone who has managed depression from early childhood into adulthood, I have learned a variety of different coping mechanisms to help me. Different things work for different people, just like the same coping mechanism won’t work for every situation. And it is extremely, extremely important for someone dealing with any kind of problem, not … Read more Finding an Oasis in Nature
When you understand that you can never lack, that you are infinite in each moment, that you are everything, that everything is yours, living to “survive” stops making sense and you start to wonder why do you are here and what is the purpose of the life that you have.
That’s when you find your calling, that when you finally “get over your life” and place your attention upon the intention that brought you here into this beautiful planet.
Then, you calling/your purpose becomes naturally everything that makes sense for you to be and to align your life with.
Aligned your life with the intention that it was generated from is one of best achievements you can have here in this physical experience.
An achievement that is worth “dying” for, the 1st place on the Olympics of being alive.
Only at that moment, your true life had truly began.
It’s the start of July and here’s the lay of the land. Scarily, it’s over half way through the year and I’ve had so many amazing, life changing experiences.

Since the day we opened our eyes for the first time, we were led to believe that our minds are important, that they have tremendous significance, are powerful and through our minds we will get to have a pleasant life if we are somehow blessed with a great natural set of thoughts or if we manage to educate and nurture it in the right ways.
But as your world is an illusion, your mind is also not real and you don’t need your mind’s permission to become more.
Your thoughts are layers of distortion defining an illusion, that’s how fake they are.
In your mind exists confusion over your mind lies true clarity.
We were raised with the belief that we are pretty much the bodies we are wearing an that the outside world is undeniably real, solid and unquestionable.
We believe that are always four walls surrounding us, we believe those walls to be real and without question we believe to be limited by them.
We assume our circumstance to be real, powerful, potent, existing somewhere outside of ourselves, apart from our will and that we cannot change unless they do.
Take a deep breath, relax your mind and allow transcendence of the world happen for you.
On the previous post I introduced you to your “Higher Self”, as being a version of yourself existing a higher dimensional perspective, like you in the future or you from a higher place. As we previously covered, your higher self knows everything that is to know. From his higher place, he/it simultaneously sees “past”, “future”, … Read more Higher Self – Ways of communication
What is the point of this life? Why do I do what I do? What would happen if I just quit today? Where is all this hard work leading to? . . . Those are some very deep and tough questions to answer. And. Well. I don’t know the answers to those questions (I don’t … Read more Authentic Love!
