I find it customary that a blog’s first post discuss the details, the logistics, or the information that people may ask, so it’s easier to spell it out from the get-go. This blog is about so many things it’s hard to pinpoint the exact topic. If I had to, I’d label it as a conglomeration of topics related to the extensive field of holistic health. If really looking holistically about health, it isn’t just about policy, or treatments, or global pandemics- we’re also talking about the role of spirituality and/or culture, alternative/complementary therapies, consciousness, movement, diet, meditation, community building, relationships, the role of the environment, and really, anything else. But yet I have a focus.
In my life- which this blog isn’t necessarily about, but would be silly to omit altogether- I am on a journey. Aren’t we all. My journal to to wellness, or wholeness, and higher states of consciousness. There are millions of paths that lead to the jewel within the lotus. I’m not here to judge (I’m working on that one still), and everyone’s path is unique, special and A-OK just as it is. I am a serious student of all these holistic health topics, and in these studies, have realized I am not a healer in the conventional use of the term. I’m not out to save people. But I’d like to help you if I can, and the way I best can is by sharing information. That is what this blog is for. I want to provide you with useful information, things I am currently finding to be interesting/inspiring/useful in my own journey. They say one can only help people to a level of wellness/health with which they themselves are at. I work on me first, and it’s a life-long journey, but I’d like if you came along for the ride, and hopefully I can help you with your journey too. But with this, keep in mind that your path is yours. It will probably look and feel differently than mine. That’s just fine. Also, you may not agree with me on certain points. That’s fine too. The only promise I can make is that I will speak honestly, authentically, and represent my true self in this venture. I challenge you to do the same, be open to the possibilities, and see what the universe provides.
This blog is for everyone, and hopefully by everyone. Please feel free to comment, add suggestions, provide your own tools or learnings and help this community. It truly does take a village; I’m no expert. I will only share things I have personally tried or thought about, and I value the wisdom of the readers. I will attempt to post regularly, but as with any creative venture, it cannot be forced. When my heart has something to share, I will share. I look forward to sharing with you.
I’ll close the introductory blog with a quote:
“There is a candle in your heart, ready to be kindled.
There is a void in your soul, ready to be filled.
You feel it, don’t you?”
