Like most people, my life has been shaped by my life experiences. One of my most influential experiences happened when I was just 14 years old. Out of nowhere, I lost my best friend who died unexpectedly of natural causes in her sleep. This was a pivotal moment for me. I was left feeling shocked, devastated, and confused.
In my grief, I began to think deeply about life's biggest questions. What is the purpose of life? Who and what is God? Does God exist? What is my purpose? What happens when we die? What is the nature of life, death, and all that is? Even though I was just a kid, these questions were the only ones I truly cared about from that moment forward.
Around the same time I lost my friend I experienced another major challenge that shaped my life. I realized that I was gay. Ultimately, I accepted this part of myself, but learning to love myself fully when so much of the world was telling me that I was less than forced me to go even deeper into my soul searching.
I not only wanted to understand the meaning of life, but I also wanted to heal any lack of self-love and worthiness that I felt. I began my journey of healing and discovery which eventually led me to study and practice hypnotherapy, past-life regression, and EFT Tapping.
For over twenty years, I've been using these techniques to learn, grow, and heal on a mental, emotional, and spiritual level. SoulStarter was born out of my desire to share these tools and techniques so that together we can heal the wounds of our past and connect with our true, spiritual nature.
"Thank God I'm Gay" - A Self-Love Pep Talk by Amy Ash
It's our differences that make us strong, make us grow, and allow us to be more compassionate and accepting towards others. But, in order to reap these positive benefits, we must first be willing to love and accept ourselves in spite of the things that make us different.
In this short talk, I share my personal journey about moving from fear to love by consciously choosing to hold healthy boundaries and love myself in spite of the judgment going on around me. Self-love is like a muscle, the more you use it, the stronger you become. So strengthen your self-love muscles!
No matter what challenges you face in your life, see them for what they truly are - the opportunity to love and accept yourself unconditionally and authentically. Hope you enjoy the talk!
