Finally on the up 😇

Finally on the up 😇

Hi everyone🌻🌻🌻 I have suffered with anxiety and depression for a very long time along with thyroid disease. meditation , chakra healing , crystal therapy and journals have been a huge saviour for me , I have been on setraline ,prozac and metazapine along with levothyroxine and proponanol , I still take my proponanol and thyroid medication but have decided no more chemicals and I will fight the anxiety with a chemical free brain , the difference is incredible I am in so much more control now but the path I have taken with insomnia mental breakdowns unable to drive self harming have all been a huge learning step and that feeling of no one understanding when I just needed 1 person to get me . I think it's a very long process and relapse is very common but if we can all help each other with tips and advice it makes huge differences 💛💛🌷🌷🌷🌺🌺🌺

Was the chakra healing called bi-aura therapy?

I did my own chakra healing with the help of very dear friend who is a clarevoyant and reiki master chick xxx

I agree antidepressants did not work for me in fact they made me so much worse! I came off them and have got better without them. It took a long time though and I too tried different healing without drugs.

I think one of the best things to do is not let it beat you. If you feel like you can't face going out just do it anyway. You might feel awful for a while but in the end you'll feel better for having done it. The best thing I did was apply for the job I have now. It gave me alot of confidence and even though I didn't sleep for the first week due to nerves here I am 20 months later enjoying the fact I can now provide better for my family and along with my husband's wages we can plan exciting things to do with our kids and provide better for them. We don't earn loads but just enough to pay all the bills and have a bit left over. My husband also suffers with his mental health and has been put back on the tablets but it seems to work for him. So while they don't work for some people they do work for others. It's definitely worth a try so you know either way. He has been doing driving lessons for months and failed his first test but has another soon. Keep trying to achieve your goals cause when you do it's so rewarding! I'm glad you're feeling better and good luck for the future!

Wow! Such an inspiring story mam. I am returning to my old job too tomorrow, I hope I can still function well with my GAD and meds. I think I will try to get off my meds too ASAP, since it is too expensive and it seems like it is controlling my emotions, I feel like I am a zombie 😑. Hopefully soon I will really stop my meds and manage myself without it, just like what you are now mam. :) gave me hope :) Not to be a forever slave with meds :)

That's the thing. It makes it hard to do my work. But I experimented this evening and sang a song when I was upset and it actually really helped. So perhaps I will do that more often as I'm a Singer anyway. Music calms me down alot good outlet for me. But my art and writing it's harder if I'm bad. but I guess that's cos I have to sit to do that and singing I can stand.

Keep singing then sweetie if that helps music is very therapeutic xxx

I've been getting bi aura therapy privately and it was really helping but when I came away on holiday I've been feeling really bad again. Anxiety has been terrible and it has spoilt the holiday cos I couldn't eat or drink cos my anxiety made me have no appetite. I've only had 4 sessions of bi aura. Do u think I need more to benefit from it? Xxx

Have u tried meditation hunni creating ure own santuary corner in ure home using materials u like and colours sensory items really help it's like creating a bubble and safe zone for ureself ? . I created one in my home using velvet materials and fur cushions and dream catchers and crystals and insence sticks ,smells help so much for example burning lemongrass in a morning to refresh ure mind and then lavender at night to calm , white sage is also beautiful it cleanses ure home . I also use essential oils on trigger points on my body that really helps chick , sorry if I am going on I just have so many tactics that I used that I found so successful and may help others such as ure self 💞💞 no one deserves to deal with anxiety it is so hard xxx

Kel34, I love the idea of creating my own space. I might get some fur cushions for my bed and burn some oils. How do you burn yours? 🌸

Reply

I don't burn oils I use natural ones on trigger points on my body such as temples and back of neck that's where we carry anxiety the most . I burn incense sticks and light candles just create a space just for u that's just ures take time out and relax it will help I promise u xxx

Reply

Oh that sounds lovely, I have a nighttime roll on, I'm going to try that tonight

What incense sticks do you find are the best? I love candles, but I find some scents just smell fake 🌸🌸

Reply

I use naga u can order them off amazon white sage , chamomile, lavender , citronella, sadlewood are fantastic for anxiety they change the dinamics in a room and create a calming space even my children love them and no they help me and they now can tell which smell is which . Also affirmations are fantastic to use I have many of them I use depending on my frame of mind 💛💛💛💛

Reply

Oh thank you, I'm going to order some now. I've just sprayed my pillow with a nighttime spray and lit some candles.

Where do you find affirmations? 🌸💐

Reply

Look up chakra balancing and healing and then research under affirmations each one has different meanings and it's very positive mindfulness I am a big believer , a red jasper crystal would help u also it keeps us grounded to the floor and a tiger eye crystal is a protector 🌹🌹🌹

Reply

Thank you so much for all your help, I really appreciate it. Im going to get some incense and look into those crystals. I already have rose quartz, amethyst and clear quartz. Do you keep your by the side of your bed or carry them around? 🌸💐

Reply

I keep mine on me hunni but when they not on me they r in my meditation room and put out on the window ledge to the moon on evenings this cleanses the crystals to keep them positive . Please don't thank me anything to help if u need to chat message me anytime 💞
