Life Happens To Us
A True Story
In this heartbreaking, extremely personal memoir of a life touched by profound tragedy, author Ashta-deb invites readers into her world in the hopes that they might benefit from the discovered remedies that at last elevated her above it. Here is a soul who had suffered abuse at the hands of both parents, abandonment by her mother, and the tragic death of her thirteen-year-old sister by the time she was just nine years old. As she struggles to emerge from this devastation over the next long stretch of her life, her past is relentless in its haunting. It takes many years before doctors diagnose her with PTSD, and many more for her to find the right combination of Western medicine and Eastern wisdom to heal her. Her medication with cannabis, experimentation with Ayahuasca in Peru and finally a breakthrough healing with psilocybin offers a diverse look at mental healing. In the background of it all is her dedicated cultivation of yogic and psychic abilities. At last, Life Happens to Us endorses the importance of embracing unresolved childhood experiences. It is a must-read for anyone who wishes to understand their true potential as a human being.
