Self-care is the most important part of your life right now. You are responsible for how your life goes and you want to always stay healthy as you develop your psychic gifts.
Even if you don’t choose to talk to a psychic, know that they can help you. Make sure that you are staying away from food and other things that aren’t healthy for you and that you aren’t participating in addictive behaviors. Notice your senses and be kind and patient with yourself.
