Spotlight is a page I wanted to start to highlight certain things of interest: People, Art, Music, Restaurants, Etc. Each one stays up for a period of time. Enjoy!
Hey everybody. I wanted to Spotlight a new friend of mine. Traveling our own paths with our own journeys but believing the same things as far as humanity, Love, Compassion, Spirituality, Etc. Like myself, Hannah is on a new path of self-discovery. Learning who she is and using the experiences to help others. Seekers, looking to find the reasons why and how, and looking for answers.
So, please meet Hannah.......
I am so grateful to be featured here on Steve’s spotlight page! Thank you so much, Steve, for giving me the space to share something new and exciting.
My name is Hannah Glo, and I have started my new path toward offering support and guidance to those seeking more out of their lives. Now, more than ever, we are a people in need of deep healing on many levels. As we drift further away from indigenous and communal ways of living, life in the modern world continues to wear on us physically, emotionally, and spiritually. It is far too easy to get caught up in our insecurities, ruminating thoughts and limiting beliefs about ourselves. I work to help my community seek balance, peace, and wholeness in their daily lives through turning down the volume of the mind and tuning into our internal truth.
After a rock-bottom experience over 4,000 miles away from home, in an emotionally abusive relationship several years ago, I chose to prioritize my healing honestly and with intention. My less-than-ideal experiences with psychiatrists and stuffy therapists led me to exploring more holistic methods. I had tried the anti-depressants and anti-anxiety medications, only to find myself stuck deeper in the loop of despair feeling more lost than when I started. Now, don’t get me wrong, I believe some folks need assistance with chemical imbalances in the brain, but things just weren’t working for me. I’ve come to learn that many seek a quick fix for their mental woes, but few take the path toward self-realization and doing what we call, “the work.”
I began seeing with a non-traditional therapist who helped me realize some deeply rooted wounds. Through hypnosis, entheogens, yoga, meditation, breathwork, tarot, and ultimately present moment awareness, I was able to tap into the true parts of myself that had been buried underneath the weight of societal expectations. I finally started to live authentically. With the support of my new community and encouraged by my therapist and now mentor, I started manifesting my dream partner, home, and career as a full-time artist. Living this awakened life has led me to where I am now, and empowered me to step into my role as a healer and guide. It is important to acknowledge that my teachings are not solely my own. Many of my healing modalities are rooted in ancestral ritual and and essential part of my practice is recognizing those who have come before us. I work to adapt these teachings for a 21st century life, while still paying respect to the elders and teachers who made it possible for me to be here today. This work is all based on my own lived experience and while I am not a Licensed Mental Health Counselor, I do believe in its healing capabilities. At the core, I believe we each have everything we need to heal, and it is about giving power back to ourselves to promote positive change.
If you’re interested in working with me, let’s connect! I’m currently establishing my website with spiritual offerings, but you can find me on Instagram @HannahGloPhoto and via email email@example.com
“Acting with compassion is not doing good because we think we ought to, it is giving ourselves into what we are doing, and being present in the moment. It is acting from our deepest understanding of what life is, and not compromising the truth.”
