Sinking To Elevate

Sometimes I stay afloat

Sometimes I let the weight of everything that I am feeling submerge my body into the depths of my waters

I just let go

I found solace in all of my acceptance

I’m in love with me

Drowning is enough to breathe through this pain

This isn’t me giving up

This is living to find a resolution to reach a peaceful outcome in life

My name is Shan Bae. I am a 25 year old artist and creative writer from Kansas City, MO. I am also the small business owner of Insaei Healing which translates into True Healing. I hand make jewelry using gemstones that have the ability to help aid in the healing of the chakras in the human body. I am also a Reiki Energy Healer and I use this powerful energy source to charge the gemstones in my jewelry.
