Anxiety and emotions shouldn't get to steal your life
Back in 2011, my heart started racing and my palms started sweating.
Nothing had happened, just BOOM anxiety attack at work, again. I ran outside for privacy BUT instead found myself hyperventilating in tears against a wall in a crowded area. I was 2 years sober and hadn't yet discovered how to instantly calm my emotions and anxiety down.
Months later, I was at a meditation retreat. The teacher said, "Focus on your breath," but I had an injury that throbbed with intense pain and that's all my mind could focus on.
Then it hit me. What if I go INTO the pain instead of AWAY from it? So I did and felt instant relief! I was shocked and in that moment — I knew that I'd stumbled upon something powerful.
Then I used the technique with anxiety, guilt, shame, loneliness and all of my early sobriety intense emotions...
Before I knew it, my anxiety was gone! People kept asking me how I got free, so in 2012 I started teaching my techniques...
Hi, I'm Kirsten AKA Sobriety Bestie!
When I got sober in 2009, I was afraid of almost everything, including leaving the house. All I wanted was to feel comfortable in my skin.
Alcohol and anxiety almost killed me, I knew I couldn't drink again. But at the same time, I couldn't live with all the anxiety attacks, emotional overwhelm and insecurity that terrorized me in early sobriety. I could barely work, let alone focus!
Desperate, I flew around the world seeking out teachers, gurus, trainings... I fully devoted myself to finding a way out, to calming my overwhelmed inner world.
In short, it worked! I healed my anxiety and went from legit phobias of freeway driving, public speaking and dogs to driving 13,000 miles across USA, sharing all my secrets in a TEDx talk and falling in love with my furry bestie, Luna.
I'm also no longer afraid of leaving the house and have been living overseas and traveling the world since 2014. I'm here to save you the time and frustration I went through figuring it all out, I'm here to guide you to freedom.
