My mid and lower back are hurting, corresponding to the heart and solar plexus chakras. This makes a whole lot of sense to me at this given moment. I just read an article that said my heart is likely “sore” (feeling) as is what the solar plexus chakra represents: fire, power, autonomy, will, energy, metabolism, technology, transformation, self-esteem. I’m literally experiencing growing pains from my current struggles according to where they manifest in the body. You bet I grabbed my rose quartz mandala and put it around my neck as soon as I read that about my heart chakra. It is true though. My heart hurts and my self-esteem is hurting as well. Anywho…my next client is here. Some positives are that I’m half-way through my day and I am 15 hours away from being able to apply for my full independent licensure in social work. So hoorah for that and body awareness and nurturance.

Hello, my name is Marie. I am a 20-something who wants to heal her emotional wounds and help her clients to heal as well. I am a clinical social worker (almost fully-licensed LCSW!) who deeply cares about my clients. I try to use my own life lessons, trials, and tribulations to better help myself and others. I pride myself in presenting to my clients as "more-human-than-most" and often let them know that I am a work in progress as well. I attribute my vast collection of self-help books on my book shelf not only to my clients' "presenting problems" but also my own. I have attempted to create 2 blogs recently on a different site and found myself feeling frustrated and expressing negativity and anger (this was leading up to my breakup). Now that I am in a different place, I aim to keep this blog positive, but real, as I share with you my journey toward healing my body, mind, and spirit--and finding myself somewhere along the way. I will be sharing my favorite resources, quotes, and pictures that are helping me through this difficult time. My hope is that you will find some healing from this blog and from my experiences.
