Hey Y’all!

My name’s Joe and I'm a Mental Health Journalist based in Vancouver, British Columbia.

Through my struggles with anxiety, depression, trauma and addiction, I wish to show others, that everyone is capable of improving their circumstances.

I'm sharing my story, as an experiment, to see if it is possible live a life of health, wellness, and happiness.

Why Write a Modern Day Guide to Holistic Living

Why Write a modern day guide to holistic living? This is a book I've thought about for a long time. I have a lot of knowledge about the subject that I can share, since I've literally left no stone unturned in trying to optimize my health, life and happiness. So why write it now?

Because the world and the people in it are in need of guidance.

Mind-Heart Evolution

As a species we must learn to  evolve our hearts and our minds to a higher frequency, vibration and consciousness, to ensure the survival of humanity and preservation of our planet.

We are at a crucial time in history where an excess of hatred violence, negativity and anger resides on this earth...and because this mindset is dominant in societies all over the globe the result is that we are literally destroying ourselves and  the Earth.

As the population grows if we  do not awaken our souls to the reality of the purpose of this charade- that is, we are here to realize we are all connected as one, that we are here to understand each others differences, and we are here to take care of each other, all living things, and the physical environment- we will continue down this unsustainable and self-destructive path.

We are all One - A Holistic Approach

I have begun to awaken myself . By observing the people I respect and whom I learn from, whether they are distant or near, I am beginning to understand connectedness in all aspects whether mental, physical or spiritual, it does not matter because I view them as one.

I share this same philosophy in improving my health. Different sciences, or spiritual forums or medicinal groupings diagnosed me with mental health issues, physical health issues, emotional traumas...but I see it now as one thing...my health.

Also, I view Science and Religion as two sides of the same coin...both have their merits and neither can claim 100 per cent accuracy (though they often attempt to)

Put simply, when we get put in the ground we will realize everything is just one big entity and our ties to each other as human beings are also as one...if we understand this point, how can we harm each other physically, mentally or spiritually.

Love Yourself First

Matter of fact there is not enough love in ourselves for ourselves. Not enough Self-Love. Not enough Self-Care. Not enough holistic inclusive, thoughtful living for ourselves and others.

We should adopt a more inward approach perhaps, because if we cannot love ourselves and have hatred and turmoil internally, how can we take care of the external world. As I begin to evolve and understand more and see that there is an awakening taking place I feel it is my duty to do more and I believe I can be an asset to assist others in their awakening...and I know I can do this the same way I've done everything in my life and that is by making changes in my own life first and than helping others one person at a time.

Peace.
