It was a time of transition and rebirth in my life. Sixteen is not well known to be one of the easiest years, but it was particularly challenging for me because I had been hit with a few intense epiphanies after a few life challenges .
About three years previous, my biological mom had passed away, and my dad was behind bars. I was diagnosed with clinical ADHD and put on two medications to numb down my personality. So as you might imagine, I was a very confused 13 year old, especially regarding humanity; I was already discontent with the reality I was living in.
When I moved to the beach, it might have been all the time spent by the Ocean that began healing my mind and empowering me to make decisions that were in alignment with who I truly am. So I quit my medications cold turkey. I started meditating instead. I learned about buddhism and stopped eating all animal products. I started journaling and allowing myself to forgive the people that I had let hurt me. I started using THC and CBD to improve my state of mind. This was the beginning of my journey of self-growth.
Five years later, I am almost 21 years old and I am still on my journey, and so far have healed my mind and body immensely. I now see ADHD is a human made concept that I don’t have to agree with, and rather find my fast paced mind as a blessing. I have grown my self esteem in ways that words can’t describe, after facing feelings of inadequacy due to events in my childhood. I have grown a fantastic relationship with food and have reaped the benefits of years of consuming plants and herbal remedies.
It hasn’t all been the easiest of pathways. I have had to develop self-discipline by holding myself accountable for actions that don’t serve to my benefit my life. I have had to shed some beliefs and asked myself big questions that might have caused mini existential crisis’. I have gone face to face with underlying pain and trauma that I didn’t know existed, and came out of it with a whole new perspective on my purpose.
So long story short, my destiny has been dramatically altered with some inner work and the use of natural healing. With how I have seen it change my life, and many lives around me, I am positive that it will do the same for you.
Whatever you’ve gone through in the past, and whatever is happening right now, I am here to inform you that you have every resource you need to heal within you. Yes, superfoods, CBD, and nutrient dense smoothies have the power to improve your life. The fact though, is that you don’t need any of that to reconnect with your highest self.
So don’t be discouraged if you’re not ready to jump in full fledged yet, you can begin a journey of self growth by incorporating small actions into your day that make you feel good. Taking deep breaths, drinking lots of water, and writing down your goals are good examples. You don’t need anyone or anything else to begin improving yourself.
Natural healing might change your life if you’ve gone through some rough patches that may have disturbed your physical or mental health, or if you have been looking to escape a life of stagnancy and mediocrity. If you have been trying to fill your void with medications, alcohol, junk food, Netflix, and/or tobacco, it is time to start fixing the root of your problems and healing from the mind and Earth is a great way to do that.
There are aspects of life we can’t control, and those that we can. It is time to start accepting that which you can’t, and harnessing the power in what you can. Whether you believe it or not, you have control over your habits, your attitude, and your methods at which coping with inner battles. So if you’re ready for change, it is your responsibility, and no one else’s to begin taking action.
