Like most people, my life has been shaped by my life experiences and challenges. In 1987, when I was just 14 years old, I lost my best friend who died unexpectedly of natural causes. I was left feeling shocked, devastated, and confused. I wanted answers to some of life's biggest questions. What is the purpose of life? What is my purpose? How can I make the most of this life? What is the nature of life, death, and all that is? These questions were the only ones I truly cared about from that moment forward.
Years later, I realized that I was gay. In a world that largely rejected the LGBTQ+ community (and unfortunately still does), this was a huge challenge for me that forced me to go even deeper into my soul searching to seek out the meaning of life, death, God, and all that is. I was raised Catholic, but being gay caused me to seek these answers outside of my religion. Once I left the church, I was free to explore, seek, and learn outside of the restrictions of the Catholic faith which freed me on a human and spiritual level.
I sought out actual methods to tap into my human and spiritual potential which eventually led me to study hypnotherapy, past-life regression, and EFT Tapping. Because I'm a very self-reliant and impatient person, I've been drawn to these particular techniques because they're easy to use, they work, and they facilitate an actual experience. I started SoulStarter in order to share these tools and techniques so that you can heal the wounds of your past and connect with your true, spiritual nature.
Healing and evolving is a lifelong journey and these tools have made it more gentle, authentic, and yes, fun! There's no reason that this serious spiritual growth stuff can't be fun! I hope to share these incredible tools with you to help you on your journey!
"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!
