"Live life as if everything is rigged in your favour" -Rumi
It can be quite the trip, juggling all the ins and outs of life.
As a parent of young/older children, caregiver of an ill or dependent family member.
Roles and responsibilities can weigh in heavy in work places, homes, relationships &
within our society these days.
Life begins with the ability to see the good in many situations, people and things.
Some days it sure can be a stretch to find good, when things feel so heavy.
You feeling the tensions, uprooting, past, sensations, alarming concerns lately?
You are not alone.
When I was young, at times I was portrayed as naive, yet in my heart
I knew looking for the good kept me feeling hopeful, light and connected
to a positive source within and around me.
Then as I grew up, along came human experience.
Hurts, pains, confusions, frustrations, trials, errors, mistakes; they thickened the skin around me & at times can have me second guessing the good.
Yet when I take Rumi's quote from above and remain open to what each experience is teaching or providing me, I also experience the good, warm, kind, fun, lessons, strengths, love and live the times of my life too.
It's all part of the whole but man can it ever be challenging sometimes!!!!
Practicing the art of embodied experience, opens a gateway to knowing myself.
It provides awareness to build upon the things I learn and choose what to do with them.
Because lets be real, you are the expert in your own life.
At times you need life experiences or supports to help you get really clear.
What have you survived?
What do you stand for?
Are you willing to hold yourself in all your gifts & flaws?
It’s through the contrast you see clearly your needs/desires.
Through the pain you get to know your strength.
In the shadows you reach for your light.
Together with others, you can unconditionally hold strong together.
Be witness to each other, share empathy and support the real hearing
of another’s experiences.
Release the need to fix it, judge it; just be together as it shifts.
Stand in your own truth, so that another may awaken to their own.
Taking risks can feel very vulnerable, yet they are your most valuable tool for transformation.
Take risks as you feel the impulse or urge to do so, it's like the waves
& tides of the ocean. Can you listen to the Earth's ocean that’s suffering right now?
Listen to the waters inside you that are screaming for your care, to listen and create a
steady movement or flow.
You go for it, you wait, you weep, you celebrate.
It’s a dance, back and forth, a rhythm that connects you with nature and together.
What I’ve learned from studying counselling, dynamics of groups, natural development, reading/connecting subtle body language/energy is, the need to delve within to survive & thrive. Being a healer in any capacity starts with healing yourself.
As I truly believe we are our own healers.
For the last 20 years I’ve been discovering myself over and over and over.
Yet does it ever end? Never!
What stands out each step of the way, is the little girl inside me that wants to be seen, in her goodness.
So I affirm, I practice, I raise her up and I stand in the storm and brave it with her.
I trust the risks that my heart calls me into action.
I love hard. I really give a shit. I keep doing my best.
Intending that we experience the highest good, for us all.
So with that, I sign off.
With tears of joy, as I take on each discomfort in stride.
I believe in you too.
I pray for grace, ask for help & give thanks for it all.
With an F word in there often or sometimes... lol
Fear not your flaws, mistakes, embarrassments, traumas, hurts or ideas.
They are the thing that guides you to the BEST parts of life.
That part IS you.
Keep find the good and share it. abundantly!
We need YOU.
With all my heart.
Woman, Wife, Mother and Intuitive. Consciously evolving with all of nature and humanity.
