trauma, psychedelics, and...
In our cultural journey toward healing, it's important to recognize that uncovering the stories that led us there is just as crucial. While trauma can be saddening and painful, it doesn't define our existence. It's a part of our journey that we can overcome and use as a catalyst for change.
For years, I found myself caught in a tumultuous whirlwind of trauma. Sometimes, I questioned my sanity, wondering if I was losing my mind. However, I've come to understand I'm not crazy—I may dance on the edge but never fully succumb. With the courage and support I've gained through my recovery journey, I can finally write about safe drug use and ways of accessing our own healing.
Well, it's been another messy exit from Instagram. (that’s it, insta update!) It was such a practice in feeling defenceless to share honesty in a small, generous way, stretching myself, which still feels a little scary. Honestly, I knew being back on socials was a liability waiting to happen.
Everyone seems to worry about what occurs online... fodder for the right fighters, never just a human to be safe in our pain or share our joy.
Here are three items that have shaped my story and message:
Microdosing psychedelics: The vital work began with microdosing psychedelics. What this looked like five years ago became something very different. This healing journey played a significant role in my process and opened up new possibilities for growth and understanding.
Writing and storytelling: I put my love for writing and drugs here to decrypt my past and create new stories. I'm ecstatic about the impact! It is not always idyllic; most often, it resembles a wild frolic with words. Writing has been a powerful tool for self-expression and reflection, allowing me to make sense of my experiences and connect with others on a deeper level.
Responsibility and personal growth: Uncomplicated realizations have shown me that my personal gain and growth will emerge through this. We don't always control what happens. But we can handle how we crack the code, and figuring out how to respond is badass. Being responsible for our experiences comes with clarity and peace. Choosing to solve the puzzle of our lives is an understanding that comes with allowing the events to evolve. The gift of my past is now the feeling of being extremely loved and poured into—it's a thrilling rush.
