I’m not sure you are aware, but I struggle with anxiety and depression. At its worst it can feel like there is a darkness so heavy and thick on me that I can’t see any light at all. I see a huge dip in my ratings. I’ve lost a long term client because I wasn’t able to give them the service that had come to expect from me. I don’t blame them for not wanting to pay for something that at the time I couldn’t provide.
Why am I telling you all this? There is this preconceived notion that spiritual practitioners and energy workers are somehow beyond dealing with daily life struggles. We’re supposed to be energetically above depression. I will say that learning how to follow my own path has fixed a lot of problems, but there is no such thing as a quick fix. I’m still out here in the same weird world everyone else is. In some ways being empathic makes me more vulnerable. Denying that leaves good psychics open to being used up and discarded and leaves clients open to falling into a sociopath’s cult.
What am I doing about it? I know a lot of people deal with this, but I have to take action to help me. As a matter of fact one of the things that helps me claw my way out of a depressive episode is blasting it all over the internet to see who also really just needs to talk. Helping people is the number one reason I do what I do. A rising tide raises all ships as they say. That’s not to say other people are my only tool in my toolbox.
What is a toolbox? It’s a box for tools. In this case tools are an analogy for coping techniques. For example, getting back into meditation helps clear my third eye. Then I can read better and feel more content in the world. In this case meditation is the tool I’m using. I also like to get a reading when I’m down so that I can actually have an outside perspective on what is going on. It’s also just nice to talk to someone.
If you need to talk I’m right here on Keen. Available for chat or call Monday through Friday 10am to 10 pm with a break from 4-7. This week I will be unavailable Wednesday and Thursday, but keep an eye out.
Save travel and much profit to ya.
