Heal Anxiety & Depression Naturally With These Resources

A list of resources available on my blog and elsewhere for understanding anxiety, depression, and mood disorders from a spiritual perspective, and methods to heal it free from medication. 

by Sarah Petruno, Shamana 

Hi - 

My name is Sarah Petruno and I'm a shaman. 

If this is your first time visiting my site, welcome. If you're a returing reader - thank you! 

I wasn't always a shaman. In fact, I didn't realize I had this ability until about 10-12 years AFTER the signs started popping up in my life. 

The signs - were symptoms of depression, generalized anxiety, social anxiety, and bipolar disorder. 

I was diagnosed, treated, and medicated for these disorders for 10 years before I found another way. 

On my blog and YouTube channel, I've shared tons of techniques that have really helped me release the energy causing the symptoms. 

I've talked about what it all means, how it works, and things that I have done that have WORKED to heal it. I've shared my own experiences. 

In this post, I've compiled all those resources in one place. 

I share these with love and with the intention to help as I have been helped. Please share if you know someone who could benefit.

It is possible for you. I know, because I've done it. 

Start small. Choose ONE THING. Begin implementing it into your life. Then, when it feels comfortable and natural for you, add another. Don't try and do it all at once. Cut yourself some slack and give it time.
