Most people don’t want to feel ‘better’ they want to feel numb.

It’s a myth that by feeling better, everything in your life will be magically fixed.

(TLDR it won’t.)

Feeling ‘better’ requires feeling.

When you open up to feeling – that means feeling everything – the good, the bad and the ugly. The human soul is designed to be this way.

With feeling comes pleasure, pain and everything in between. We can’t choose to have one and not have the other. It’s an energetic impossibility.

In the same way as suppressing our difficult emotions might hide them away temporarily, it always leads to disconnection and numbness on the other end of the spectrum. That means the joy gets sucked our of life too and we end up in a wasteland of ‘meh’, numb, bored and frozen.  

I’ve been there and done it more times than I care to admit. Do not recommend. Zero stars lol.

Your soul is built to experience the whole entire spectrum of feeling and emotion. It’s just that we have been indoctrinated by society to believe the mind is king. If you’re unfortunately enough to ‘live in your head’, like many of us, then you already know it’s more like a cold, punishing, psychotic tyrant than a considerate and courageous ruler.  Fortunately there is another way.

Living means breathing means feeling. Don’t be afraid of the darkness because it’s where your magic lies. 


Breathe the change you wish to see in the world.
