About


Started under anonymity on January 1st, 2018, Empath Confessions was a hobby with one simple goal -
to be of comfort and guidance to anyone who could relate to any of its content.
The continuous uptick in views is what keeps her writing while she's shifted her focus
 to her spiritual healing business.  [blog banner from 01/2021]


   From an early age, Ashley was able to pick up on and feel others' emotions, read others' thoughts, and see & receive messages from spirits. Not having any proper support to identify or empower these abilities, in addition to a rough upbringing filled with traumatic memories, caused her to attribute everything to the mental illnesses she was consequently treated for. There's no doubt that her PTSD was real, but little did she realize she could completely change her life by empowering her spiritual gifts...

   Ashley Tilson was your average 27-year-old female on the outside... but on the inside, she felt completely stuck. Despite working up the courage to sever ties to unhealthy relationships, she was struggling with many things - her obesity, her unhealthy lifestyle choices & addictions, her career choices, and most of all - her mentality. Just as she was beginning to believe she was destined to a life of negative circumstances & outcomes, something happened one night that began to change everything she ever believed.

   While Ashley believes Awakening comes as a process, she notes it always has a significant starting point. She recalls waking up one morning with a new perspective and drive, literally feeling as if someone hit a switch in her brain overnight, and the first thing she thought to herself was "Things have to change". She felt like a firecracker that was ready and eager to overcome her struggles, one by one. Over the course of a couple of years, she achieved her weight loss goal, underwent groundbreaking therapy that addressed past abuse, and began changing her every-day as she reconnected with all the truths she kept buried with her past.

   But then came a point where she couldn't figure out her place in this world. She wasn't religious or spiritual but was beginning to realize there's a lot more out there. The question "What is my purpose?" was repeating in her mind daily - and somehow, she just knew going to see a psychic would be the only way to answer that question.

This marked the turning point that sent Ashley down her Healing path;
the biggest transformation that she has experienced to date! 

In January 2019, Ashley launched her spiritual healing business..
and subsequently decided it was time to put her name on this blog (coming out of anonymity).
The blog and her business has changed over the years along with her,
but she likes to "keep trucking" with both.


   As she began exploring her spiritual path, she began writing her own journal.. but in such a way of summarizing all the information she wished she had before. Then at the beginning of 2018, she worked up the courage to post these writings publicly online and hit 'publish' on this blog. Ever since then, it's been a wild ride as she pursued further training and empowered herself in ways she never imagined possible. She continues to use this blog as a format to share her spiritual journey and its lessons and connect with those alike.

   She is now certified as a Reiki Master/Teacher, Crystal Healing Practitioner, and Priestess of Light, and is a registered Practitioner with the Canadian Reiki Association. She offers Tarot Readings, Akashic Readings, and spiritual development workshops and programs outside of her healing services. She utilizes various healing modalities in her Intuitive Healing business including [but not limited to] Reiki, Inner Child WorkCord Cutting/Cleansing, Ego Alchemy/Shadow Work, and - a method she developed for an early client's needs - Relationship Alchemy. In 2021, she overhauled her business to highlight her niche of Trauma Healing - based on her own personal experience overcoming childhood trauma, narcissism and sexual abuse.

   Now in her mid-30s, Ashley lives with her husband and dog in their countryside home in Lyn, Ontario, Canada; just outside of Brockville in southeastern Ontario. She continues her personal practices while offering her services full-time (which can be fully done online via homework and Zoom calls) and writes for this blog in her free time. She welcomes her readers to connect with her and sends her sincerest gratitude to all for their ongoing support -- it's because of you that this blog keeps going! 😇
