Jack, 23, San Diego, California “My name is Jack, I am 23 years old and grew up in Kansas City, Kansas but have called San Diego, California home for the past 5 years. I am an inspirational speaker, youth mentor, and mental health advocate. I am super grateful to do what I love everyday. Despite being happier now than ever before, my past was far from smooth sailing. For many years, I was sure that my mental health struggles were insurmountable and mine alone. Subsequently, I have learned that many people, young and old, have endured similar struggles and many others will experience them in the future.
From as young as I can remember, I struggled with severe anxiety and perfectionism. My anxiety was often crippling. Year after year this anxiety continued to become worse until my mental health struggles reached a peak in high school. So fast forward to my high school days. I attended and thrived both academically and athletically in a large suburban high school, noted for its high academic standards. But during my junior year I faced a crisis. The anxiety that plagued me for so many years developed into a deep depression and on top of that an eating disorder. I suddenly realized that I had been waging a long-standing battle with depression, stress, anxiety, body dysmorphia, bullying, injuries, an eating disorder, and I was not coming anywhere close to maximizing my human potential. I was overwhelmed with fear and felt like there was no hope. In the spring semester of my junior year, it became necessary for me to leave school for a seven-week period and become a resident in an out-of-state facility in Wisconsin that specialized in treating depression, eating disorders, and all the other personal obstacles I was facing.
I learned many coping skills and life changing habits while in Wisconsin and continued to use that knowledge upon returning home. Along with developing gratitude and perspective, the skill that worked best for me was and still does is “exposure activities”. Meaning I expose myself to the things I struggle with most..."

Your emotional patterns have an impact. They tend to be the places that block and limit you in your life.
You know you are capable of so much more, but not sure why you can’t get there.
When you have intelligent self-reflection, an accurate understanding of your patterns, you develop a different relationship to yourself. You become connected to your purpose and passion and more open to a wider range of possibilities.
If you missed today’s webinar, “Transforming Emotional Patterns Through The Embodiment Process,” there is one more opportunity to participate. On Thursday 8.23 at 12:00 noon PDT / 3:00 pm EDT. The link is in my bio.
Sounds so simple doesn’t it... As part my little 365 day challenge I’m going to really try this and see what happens. In the past I’ve made half hearted attempts, or focussed too much on the lack of what I wanted, but this time I’m going to just play with it. No attachments or stress about doing it right, just curiosity. I’ll keep you posted 😉 #everythingisenergy #lawofattractionquotes #365daysemptytowhole
"If you say you're worthy, you are. If you say you're not worthy, you're not. Either way you will live into your story."
Do you believe you are worthy of your dreams? Of your goals? Of whatever it is in the world that you want?
If you say you aren't worthy, then you won't be, and you won't ever achieve those things. Won't ever have what it is you are working towards. 🌻
But, if you BELIEVE and DECIDE that you are worthy? Then you are. Then you will be able to achieve those things. 🌼
You may wonder who you are to reach so high, to dream so big. Why me, you wonder. Why not you? Those things you want are out there. Why not you? What makes you and less worthy of making things happen than anyone else in the world?

A taizé service is primarily meditative, but blends music, word, and silence together. It is both a communal and and individual activity. It is meant to encourage a close connection with God through deep relaxation. Join us for a taizé service this Friday, Aug. 24, from 7-8:30 at CSLDallas.

Have you ever seen a photo of you as a child and said to that little girl that “you are fucking awesome.” As a kid, I saw the world through very scared eyes. Anxiety ruled my every move. Fear of everything. Never feeling like I could fully be at ease.
My dad sent me this photo the other day, and it’s a trip to be reminded of that scared little girl and the dreams she had, to only find out that you’re exactly where she had hoped to be.
You are fucking awesome💓✨

Here's some free Reprocessing work:
(This could be just another post you scroll by, or it can be a meditation you use to actually reprocess the way your brain has stored experiences and the emotions that are tied to it.)
With that said,
Here we go
Remember that person who wronged you?
The one who stole something from you?
Or betrayed you?
Or hurt you?
... yeah that one.
Imagine that you're speaking to your spiritual council right now.
Composed of ethereal guides that are each a manifestation of a part of your soul.
They know you deeply.
They know your mission here on earth.
They know your deepest desires.
They crafted you and your life's events.
Imagine you're sitting with them now.
(Really imagine it. Visualize all the details. Incorporate every sense into this experience.)
And you look to them and say:
"I just don't get it. It wasn't right. It hurt so much. I can't believe this person did that. Why didn't I know better? Why couldn't I stop it? How could this have happened to me?"
And they lovingly look at you and say:
it is precisely because of your mission and what will lead you to your fulfillment that this happened.
It would be like complaining about getting thrown into the ocean while what you seek is beneath the waves, or complaining that you lost a love while that lover was holding you back from the love that has been patiently waiting for you.
This pain hurts. Yes. It does.
You have every right to let it hurt.
Your feelings are valid.
The experience was painful.
Please forgive us.
We love you.
It was the only way we knew how to make this part go faster.
We could have dragged it out. We could have had the masks of desire and the lies of comfort ever so gently and slowly wake you up from the fantasy that all was well...
But the way you were pushed off of your foundation, the way the rug was pulled out from under you, the way your comfort was stripped away, was the quickest way to get you to see...

I don't know about you, but I need this verse today. .
I don't know your situation. I have no idea what you're going through, but let's reach out and hold hands and declare this together:
______ (name), Not by might nor by power....not by Google nor by doctors....not by experts nor by the advice of friends and loved ones....BUT BY MY SPIRIT," says the Lord of hosts!!! .
Friends, faith is a choice long before it's a feeling. It's a choice to control your thoughts, and instead fill them with the promises and declarations of God's Word.
It's a choice to stand - even when your legs are wobbly and your knees are shaking.
It's a choice to lift your hand and declare that God is greater, even when your heart is pounding so hard you can hardly hear yourself talk.
It's a choice to look the devil in the eye and tell him, "Not on my watch! You're can't have my family or my kids! You can't have my marriage! You wont raise drama in my home and on my job! You're not going to do this, because I'm driving you out in Jesus' name!" .
Girls - this is what we're called to!
This is the warfare we were created for. It's our destiny. It's our calling. It's our purpose, and it needs to become our passion.

What happens during an intuitive reiki healing?
Each person’s experience is beautifully unique.
Here is what happens from my perspective:
The shared intention of healing creates a bridge of energetic connection between myself and the person/people who are receiving the healing. I begin to receive messages almost immediately throughout my entire body. During my attunements, I was transported to this sacred forest for healing. I recognized this space from other dreams that I had that involved the archangels teaching me how they do energy healings. I knew this was the place for me to share with the souls I would be blessed enough to work with. Sometimes this place changes and I roll with where spirit guides me, but more often than not we start in this sacred place.
One of my gifts is translating energy into words and a deep understanding of how the chakras work. I’m able to feel exactly where there are lingering energies that are not serving and release them. I focus in on each chakra and share exactly what is coming through to me. Combining reiki with my intuitive gifts have made my healings extra powerful because while I use my energy to decipher, channel, and interpret… reiki heals. Reiki activates the healing within you and intensifies inner peace.
In each chakra, we clear the energies of stories- from this life, past lives, etc. Once the space is cleared, we call in new stories in the forms of affirmations, light, symbols, sacred geometry, etc. Sharing what the new energy looks/feels/sounds like is one of my favorite parts. My body tingles with excitement and optimism. It is a process of complete unconditional love and support.
Reiki is loving, intelligent energy that flows exactly to where it is needed. This means that while our focus may be on one chakra, we can trust that reiki is addressing all parts of the mind, body, and soul. Reiki is also not bound to the same rules of time and distance as we know it. This means that reiki can transcend space and time, being just as effective in person, distance, live, or via recording. It all works the same. It is only our ego that thinks there’s any difference.
To me, distance reiki is similar to music (cont)
It really is a choice to have an awesome day, to feel amazing, to be productive.... To be happy.
✨ We can choose pver how we want to feel...
✨ We can choose over how we let outside factors influence our mood
✨ We can choose what small actions can make us feel good
✨ We can choose to do something now, or not and repeat the same story for 20+, 30+, 40+ years...
