Becoming an Emotional Alchemist

You’re not alone.

I feel it, too.

The hurt, the pain, the agony. The fear, the loneliness, the sorrow.

The crippling weight of a shattered heart inside your chest. The vulnerability of a broken soul being dragged behind you.

Sometimes, the pain is too much to bear.

Sometimes, you can’t help but break down and cry.

I get it.

Maybe you were hurt. Maybe you were betrayed. Maybe you lost the only friend who knew how to mend your wounds. Maybe you’ve been carrying this weight as long as you can remember.

I don’t know — and I won’t act like I know where your pain came from.

But what I do know is that your pain is real. It exists. And it influences every aspect of your life.

The good news?

It doesn’t have to be that way.

You don’t have to carry this pain forever.

There are ways you can transform your pain into something else.

And whether for yourself or someone else, your pain can become a beacon of light that guides those lost to a land of hope and healing.

Your pain can become a source of power you’re proud of.

Over the next few days, I’d like to show you 6 different ways you can alchemize that pain into hope, happiness and love.

Stay tuned.

Halt right there!
