So we survived the Mayan apocalypse and are spiralling quickly towards 2013. This year certainly brought changes for me in terms of mental health. I started with a new psychiatrist and re-started with quite possibly the most amazing therapist in the US. That took effort and financial debt I’m currently paying back through ‘volunteer’ work. It’s been worth the difficulties, though.
Therapy took a few twists and turns along the way. There were milestones; sharing the name of the cult that my family belonged to, exploring some of the darker SRA memories, expressing strong and open emotion. There were also major setbacks; a relapse of bulimia, the ‘formal’ attitude to distance therapy, the consideration of abandoning therapy as a whole. All of those, however, average out to what has probably been my most extensive and forward-moving therapy experience to date. I’ll keep moving forward. Very little has changed in other terms.
Friday was the Long Nights Moon, the most powerful Full Moon of the year. During my rite, I considered what I might need for the upcoming year. The answer was simple: peace, healing, and fruitful endeavours for myself and my FOC. I need to focus more on physical, spiritual and mental health for myself, and I need to learn more about how to project energy to those I love. We’re scattered about in two different countries, afterall.
Wishing peace and happiness to all of your for the upcoming year. May we all work together with love and harmony as a global society. We can still fix this bit we call the Universe. It’s all in our power.
