Are You an Over-Giver?
An over-giver is someone who puts others' needs ahead of their own. They are extremely loving human beings with the best of intentions, trying to solve other people's problems, "fix" or "save" them.
The problem is that this love and care takes their energy away from themselves, and revolves around the other person so much that they neglect their own needs. This is the initial problem, because these individuals don't take care of themselves, but it can stem into many other problems on a much deeper level.
Over-givers are also known as "Codependent" as they try to gain energy from giving, helping, fixing, serving, or doing anything and everything for the other person, with the hopes of getting love back in return. They hope for some thanks, appreciation, being taken care of in return, and ultimately hope to be loved to the same degree that they offer love.
But the problem is that it doesn't work. Over-givers don't attract equal partners, but over-takers. These can be addicts, narcissists, abusers, or partners with low self esteem. They do not offer an equal love, because they are constantly taking, and they feel no need to give, leaving their over-giving partners feeling exhausted, depleted, and resentful.

Facebook Group for Over-Givers
This is a group especially for over-giving WOMEN. Of course this is not a problem only for women, but it definitely affects women more than men.
This group is a safe space for over-giving and codependent women, where they can support each other, and learn to take care of themselves more.
These tips and tricks come from the perspective of yoga and meditation as a basis for self care and valuing oneself.

Distance Reiki Energy Healing
As over-givers, we often feel depleted of energy, with a habit of constantly giving to everyone else. Our chakras can very often be out of balance, and sometimes we just need an additional boost to get us going!
Reiki is a powerful method of energy healing, that can even be done across distances, making it available to anyone around the world, no matter where you are! I offer this healing to anyone who feels they might need it. It involves a reading and balancing of the chakras, which first detects which ones are out of balance (in a deficiency or an excess of energy), and then brings them all back into balance. After that, there is a little talk to let you know what I felt, and to give you some tips on how to keep those chakras in balance.

E-Book: Crossing Journeys
Crossing Journeys is an e-book that I wrote over the course of six or seven years. It started as a therapeutic exercise for myself, and turned into an opportunity to help others in a similar situation.
