Behind the Healer

“The truth of the matter was, I couldn’t handle myself. I couldn’t handle being alone. That was a whole other beast for me. Being alone with yourself. Me, myself, and I. Oh no. I was not okay with me, myself, and I. I was escaping me, myself, and I with alcohol, with sex, with chasing affection all the time. The reason that that all came crashing down and forced me to deal with it…is I got a DUI. And this DUI forced me. The universe, God, forced me to stop and to slow down, and to deal with it by putting me on house arrest, and by taking away my freedom, in the form of an ankle bracelet, and so I had to wear an ankle bracelet for 30 days. In this house. Couldn’t go anywhere, and was like, ‘You’re trying to run away from yourself? No girl. You can’t run anymore. It’s you, yourself, and I. You’re alone. You can’t go anywhere. You can’t do anything.'” –Bashout.

Moving Energy

“He started to move energy, and he started to pick up on things that I had never told him or anyone, and as he was feeling into my energy it started to get me to believe. As he started healing in my heart, he told me ‘You have a very heavy heart, so much sadness, You’ve been forgiving, but you still need to let go of forgiveness. YOu’re still holding onto it.’ And he asked me to call out the names of the people that I needed to forgive.” -Josephina Bashout
