Have you ever had a health scare?  

Something life-threatening?

Or know someone who has? 

I’m sure you have.

When I faced the challenges of depression following a cancer diagnosis six years ago, I knew that traditional approaches alone wouldn’t provide me with the comprehensive healing I sought. 

In honor of Mental Health Awareness Month, I want to share a transformative journey that highlights the power of embracing intuition, dreamwork, and meditation, in addition to psychotherapy, as tools for combatting depression, or receiving a negative diagnosis. 

It is my hope that by sharing my story, we can collectively explore the profound potential of these practices in our own lives.

As a licensed psychotherapist, individual therapy has always provided a foundation for me. 

I regularly consult with a therapist, no matter what is going on around me.    

Talk therapy with someone who deeply listens is the foundation of my profession, and I value this approach wholeheartedly.

Cancer drove me deeper within, tapping into my intuition as a guiding force. My inner wisdom lead me toward other practices pivotal in my healing journey.

Dreamwork became an integral part of my process.

By paying close attention to my dreams and their symbolism, I uncovered profound insights and messages from my subconscious mind. 

For me, dreams are a portal to understanding my deepest fears, hopes, and desires, ultimately guiding me toward a greater sense of self-awareness and healing.

In conjunction with dreamwork and my personal psychotherapy, meditation became my sanctuary, a space where I could cultivate inner peace and harness the power of the present moment. 

By quieting my mind and connecting with my breath, I opened myself up to receiving divine guidance and finding solace amidst life’s challenges. Meditation became the foundation upon which I built resilience and self-compassion.

Through the combined practice of intuition, dreamwork, meditation, and individual therapy, I  experienced a profound shift in my mental and physical well-being. 

Depression and cancer were no longer all-consuming forces, but rather opportunities for growth and self-discovery. 

By tapping into my mystic mindset, I cultivated a deep sense of empowerment and resilience.

I celebrate the transformative power of these practices in honor of Mental Health Awareness Month.

 May we honor our intuition, trusting its guidance as we navigate life’s twists and turns. 

May we explore the rich symbolism of our dreams, uncovering hidden truths that can propel us forward on our healing journeys. 

May we find solace and rejuvenation in the stillness of meditation, allowing it to connect us with the divine wisdom within.

May we support one another as we harness the mystic mindset, recognizing the vast potential within each of us. 

Together, let us embark on a collective journey of self-discovery, growth, and healing.
