We Were Made For These Times
Challenging as this may feel, many of us working with energy are familiar with this sacred mantra. I personally find myself weaving in and out of these words, sometimes feeling shaken to the core, and other times, resting fully in my authentic truth - though most oftentimes dancing somewhere in between. I realize it has been quite some time since I last posted. I've been giving myself these last several months to surrender gracefully, and sometimes not so gracefully, into the Void. And within this Darkness, learning how courage really feels, learning what trust truly means, and most of all, learning to play with the sacredness of Paradox ~ one breath at a time, one moment at a time ~ lovingly embodying more of the hidden jewels of my Self and of Life.
I invite you to deepen into the SOMAtic language of your body ~ your sensations ~ by first connecting with Nature, and then trusting in the subtle energy shifts within your Self and within Gaia.
And then allow your body to take you on a most magical, playful and mystical adventure of de*Light!
This image touches my heart as I reflect upon my father, who flew through the veils 30 years ago today. After healing many layers of childhood wounding, I feel a depth of my father's love that I did not feel while he was in physical form. There are moments where my heart longs to see him, to touch him, to dance and laugh with him again ... to sit in his sweet, compassionate, strong and protective presence ... to listen to his beautiful stories of his life ... such a man of incredible honor, resilience, devotion and courage.
I am beyond grateful for the last moments with you, father. You had already taken flight by the time we arrived at the hospital. And although it has been difficult for me to resolve not being present during your transition, I have come to understand your last, and most sacred gift.
Your face and eyes shone the radiance of pure and indescribable Love ... and the expansion of your essence filled the room with the Truth of your heart.
Thank you father for the spark of the Divine re-membered in my soul ... it has changed the course of my life in a most profound way.
I love you. Our heartfelt conversations ... are very different Now.
