Tips for people suffering from depression, loss, or a sudden break up.

What you will need:

1. Your favourite food, preferably something hearty, highly saturated, (no, I do not normally encourage this), but it does work perfectly for grounding ones self, as the food is so heavy. Just try not to make a habit of it after.
2. Thick curtains, or at least ones that barricade you. The important thing at this moment is to grab a hold of your pain, for yourself. Pain has a habit of wanting to spill out & spread out everywhere. If you draw your curtains & darken your room, you can create the illusion just for that moment in time of being separate from the outside world. Trapping your pain where it is, so that it does not have to concern anybody else. Feel free to imagine ceasing to exist. Feel free to imagine time, space, or the present moment being nothing but a figment of somebody else’s imagination. Forget the thing that hurt you. For a second, when you close your eyes, it never happened.
3. A hot water bottle. Comfort is really important in this instant. You may feel as if you need a hug, but also feel as if you would prefer to be alone. Well, a hot water bottle & some cuddly toys could substitute the comfort that you so need.
4. A re-run of your favourite series, movies. Escapism is a fantastic mechanism for coping, as long as it does not become a force of habit. Allow your imagination to carry you into the place of your favourite TV show. Imagine interacting with the characters, imagine what the street would smell like, how you would save the day if you were the main character, completely immerse yourself in somebody else’s story.
5. A draw or corner to place your phone, where you will not be distracted. Your phone being switched off will help to add to the idea of being separate from, away from the world & away from all of the troubles of it. Put it somewhere you will not be tempted to immediately grab it. There is no rush to switch it back on. There is no shame in keeping to yourself. You need this right now.
Please keep in mind that these coping techniques are only advisable during initial grieving periods, perhaps the first couple of days. After a while, exercise, fresh air, & conversation works wonders.

From a very early age, it was clear to see that my path was one paved with difference. Inspiration, intuition, and imagination gripped me long before I could find my feet. I walk the life path of 7, so I am irreversibly bound to the realm of mysticism, spiritualism, and esotericism. I do not belong to this world, for I am a 'tween', always in between worlds. I am the commander of serpents, belonging to the glorious, and forbidden 13th zodiac of ophiuchus. Hidden in secrecy, to one day return as the divine feminine awakens. Love, is my speciality, and has governed my existence. I now use a combination of intuition, natural healing ability, astrology, psychology, sociology, and numerology to bring clarity, healing, and understanding to all. With the energy of ophiuchus running through me, I could never turn away from the path of healing, nor teaching. Not only does ophiuchus represent healing, but also the crevices of the dark shadows that we must crawl through to find our path to healing, in other words, the shamanic process of death, and re-birth, which has pretty much been the summation of my existence thus far. Long gone are my days of depression, I have re-claimed my divinity, and I desire nothing more than to help you to also claim yours. Not only the seeker, I am also the lover. Part of the many trials that I have endured upon this empathic journey, are that of heart break, and abandonment consciousness. For this reason, I have become an advocate for healthy loving relationships, and the harmony between the two sexes. This has taken me on a deep quest, to uncover ancient old secrets, and deeply entrenched beliefs, about man, about woman, and what this reads about where we are to. My eternal life drive and motto revolves around this simple theory, 'Where there is an outcome, there has existed a cause'. My particular areas of interest and expertise lie with sociology, psychology, spiritualism, philosophy, and literary, and creative writing. As I have a deeply intense desire to both serve, and aid humanity, I have naturally been drawn toward topics that have provided me with a more in depth account of societal behaviour, and as it stands, human kind. My roots are as deeply rooted as they can be, stemming from Ghanaian parents, who were raised, and both skilled in the art, and knowledge of superstition, and divination wisdom, it is no surprise that the blood flowing through my veins compels me to do such work, so relentlessly. Unlike other bloggers, this work featured here is not a mere hobby, it is more than just my livelihood, it is the calling of which i cannot ignore. Another prominent focus of mine, is mental illness. Not comfortable, nor fully sold with the western idealisms of the implications of such, i seek research, personal experience, and observation to prove, that many mental illnesses hold spiritual connotation, particularly as the mind is an avid translator of spiritual energies. Follow me on this journey as i discover myself, retrace my roots, fall deeply in love with my heritage, and finally accept my awkward, unorthodox societal position.
