This winter was an incredible blessing for me, since I didn’t have to commute to the office after January. I had more time to spend at home between clients reflecting on many issues and being with myself. I was reminded of those long summer months of vacation in Australia growing up, of having the opportunity and time to do nothing if I chose. There was a slowness, a stillness, a time to dream, a time to reflect, a time for play. I remember one of my favorite things to do was to read in the back of our car in the carport. It was the shadiest place around and I would read, nap, think and daydream. That has got to be one of my favorite things to do even now. Mostly though I don’t give myself that pleasure enough. I was always too busy and would feel guilty if I spent time either not doing anything or playing.
Something wonderful happened this winter as I was in this apartment with beautiful views and sun bursting through the windows. I felt called to spend time here, to slow down, to go inside even more deeply. Anything that was ready to heal came up to the light. Being that our life is a journey and we will always be on that journey of finding deeper love, connection and acceptance. Just like nature which is quiet in winter, resting, renewing and working underneath, preparing for Spring. It was important for me too, to do the same, to slow down, reflect and renew.
Most people are running away from themselves. I am reminded of Rumi’s quote: “The wound is where the light enters”. If the wound is where the light enters wouldn’t we seek the light? Problem is, we have to go through the wound, sometimes opening up a scab that underneath is still not completely healed. We have to reveal that which is uncomfortable and sometimes scary. We have to look at the negative judgements about ourselves that we hold. We have to find the place where it is safe to transform them. We can safely heal with gentle techniques such as EFT (Emotional Healing Techniques), Matrix Reimprinting, Grief Recovery Method and Internal Family Systems. When you do heal, what is revealed is more and more of your connection to Divine Love and the discovery that you are enough and that your dreams are possible.
I have always sought the truth and this winter wonderful things have opened up to me of such beauty and bliss, that it is hard to describe. I continue to have everyday miracles, insights and guidance. We are all so much more than this life, this particular journey. I’m not saying it’s always easy, life can be very up and down but it is so worth it. Our pilgrim journey of discovering who we are, this journey of lifting the veils to discover the amazing light within each and everyone of us.
I think of clearing our energy, of getting our energy system unstuck, of changing any negative thoughts as something to be done continuously. We go to the gym and exercise classes to keep our bodies fit and flexible. We eat healthy food and pray and meditate. We brush our teeth and floss. I also take care of my emotional system and get rid of any fears that crop up and get in the way of me achieving my goals.
I encourage you to take care of your emotions and spirit which affect every part of your body and create your life at every moment of every day.
