Addiction & Mental Illness in the Pagan Community

So many today struggle with demons, addictions, mental illnesses due to stress, food, being overwhelmed, or even genetics. 


Many of those suffering, or living with, however you come to see it, turn to the Pagan community because of our acceptance of all for who they are. It is true, Pagans are an accepting bunch of folk with little expectations except for bettering yourself and accepting responsibility for your own actions. Even though, most Pagans are this accepting, and the Path of the Goddess is filled with enlightenment, there is also that last statement many tend to forget, "accepting responsibility for your own actions".

"I'm fine, really"

I'm fine, really
When you're down, and thinking everything just sucks, it's hard to find out what got you down in the first place. You start replaying things over and over again in your mind and you just can't seem to find the right reason. You just wake up one day, completely defeated, feeling worthless and you find yourself questioning every action you make, every word you speak, all the way down to wondering if you laughed at the right time during a joke.

It sucks when you have those days, and believe me, everyone has those days don't sit there telling yourself you don't. All you're doing is hiding how you feel and that's just not good for anyone...ever.

Migraines

I wrote this up to send to some co workers and I decided to share it here and on the A Spiritual Blend FB page. I have a lot of friends who come to me for help with their migraines and I have helped them with this information. With the stressful times we are in, migraines have become rampant in society. Dr's do help, however, a lot of migraines can be stopped using only holistic methods. If you are suffering from consistent migraines and nothing I've posted has helped, please seek medical attention because it can be a sign of something more.
For help or more advice, feel free to contact me - Kieran@aspiritualblend.com or TattooedPaganMom@gmail.com 


Migraines are caused by enlargement of the blood vessels that stretch around the nerves forcing the nerves to release a chemical that is to protect the brain from swelling, however, is only causing inflammation, pain, and further enlargement. What triggers the enlargement is shock and stress. Basically, your brain/nerves are hyper sensitive and loud noises, bright flashing light, or starring at moving patterns can trigger the migraine. To help aid migraines is to catch them before they happen.
