“I Live for the Dark; It’s the Only Way Someone Like Me Can Shine.”

Write • Music • Spirituality • Metaphysical • Addiction/Recovery

This blog contains two parts:

A) Notes, chapters, and excerpts from what is to be a memoir of my years struggling with heroin, as well as my ultimate recovery, which brings about the next part. My memoir is planned to be told in two, or possibly three, full-lengths books (think Augusten Burroughs, Running with Scissors, Dry, Magical Thinking). This sets up the other part of this blog…

B) Blog posts inspired by my recovery that began my spiritual journey to discover purpose and meaning in my life and the world. My purpose, for the time at hand, is to share my experience, strength and hope to those who struggle with addiction, depression, anxiety, codependency, grief, and/or issues dealing with being an Empath and/or Highly Sensitive Person.

If you’re struggling in life, whether it be from addiction, loss of a loved one, depression, loss of worth, or just feeling different from your peers and not knowing what’s wrong—you’re not alone. Talk to me… I’ve been there, and there is a way out. My desire and purpose in this life is to help others understand certain life struggles by offering my experience and knowledge from reading/studying over 150 books, ranging from recovery, addiction (nonfiction/memoirs), Buddhism, ancient knowledge, metaphysics, pseudoscience, Law of Attraction, Catholicism, Christian alternative, Judaism, Taoism, personal transformation, self-help, etc.. I want to share my thoughts and discovered wisdom to help you look within and find that light inside you that’s been suppressed since childhood. Echolightworker@gmail.com Or allevi8ed@gmail.com
