Crouching down in the corner of his room, he was continuously shedding tears, letting the burden of his emotions smoothly trail down his squished cheeks. The weight of society and load of the thoughts was greater; than the mass of his existence. That specific moment was a halt in his life, a point where he thought he wasn’t brave enough and do not belong to this perfectly faked world. The boy was internally shattered; until life once again taught him that it’s okay to not be okay.

We had the opportunity to speak with Amy White. Amy White is an intuitive medium, a channel, an energy healer, and, what she likes to call herself, a truth bomb dropper. She works with people and helps them connect to their inner knowing. She teaches how to use that inner knowing to help guide us each on our individual journeys. When Amy does this work, depending on her audience, she can help bring forward people’s inner wisdom so they can begin to trust, move through things that block their path and begin to lead their life from a place of knowing as opposed to looking outward. She empowers people’s lives, so they can start to feel like they are fully embodying their experience.
