Living a life of authenticity and integrity takes practice and determination, even if that means picking yourself up from rock bottom. Today’s guest, Sydney Campos, knows this journey all too well.
Sydney is a visionary healer, author and strategy advisor among many other wonderful things. Her mission is to create heaven on Earth for all people looking to live a more authentic life. She accomplishes this by various types of healing retreats, Akashic record healing, breathwork, meditation and more.
A Long Road to Recovery
Her journey began at a young age. After a decade of drug and alcohol abuse, Sydney was at rock bottom and needed to make a change. Ever since she was a child, she struggled with feeling too much. As an extreme empath, reality was often too much to bear. To cope with these intense emotions and painful situations, Sydney self-medicated with alcohol, drugs and other self-sabotaging behavior.
For years, she led a double life. Working in advertising during the day, while dancing at a strip club at night, drinking to the point of hospitalization in some cases. It wasn’t until she confided in her therapist that she realized how severe her situation was. She hadn’t told anyone about her addictions before. This was the wake-up call she needed to make a change. She then began the slow process of recovery and treatment.
Embracing the Empath Experience
In her recovery, Sydney was able to learn how to embrace her empathic gifts and use them to help others heal through her various spiritual modalities. She emphasizes the importance of self-worth and how your personal journey is always ongoing. After the crazy year of 2020, it’s important to recognize gratitude and disconnect from any feelings of doubt or unworthiness.
For those struggling with addiction, Sydney offers her words of wisdom. Don’t be afraid of change. You have so much to live for. Not only is there so much joy and love in the world, but maybe your purpose is to share that love with others. Asking for help is scary, but know that there are people who care about you and are ready to help.
