When quitting drinking is a catalyst to deep soul healing, a massive awakening, and a whole new career! In this episode, Ruby talks to tarot reader and healer Lindsay Mack about how sobriety was a gateway to the breakdown / breakthrough that helped her finally confront the ghosts of the past and step into her healing gifts.
A survivor of childhood abuse, Lindsay acknowledges how she turned to medicating with alcohol as a stand-in for more profound healing modalities—and how this prevented her from moving on for good. In this episode we also discuss:
-What our body is telling us when we have an allergic reaction to alcohol.
-Using alcohol to mask misunderstood intuitive, psychic, and empathetic healing gifts.
-Being the only sober person in a family of “passionate drinkers.”
-The breakdown / breakthough that led to her addressing her childhood trauma and PTSD.
-Emotions and feelings as signposts for how to use our power and our gifts.
-Alcohol as a way to perpetuate abuse and self-harm when it’s all we know.
-Using the tarot to understand addiction and as a tool for self-healing.
