Feel it to heal it!

This photo was taken by my beloved in the outskirts of Austin TX the one time we chose to break our quarantine of over a month so we can take a ride out in the country side for our mental wellbeing. The Universe had other plans for us that evening. The car broke down on us and we had to reach out for help, having to come in contact with our helpers. One of them was a dear friend who I was very happy to see and very sad to not be able to hug, as we still maintained physical distance the best we could. Oh, the cosmic joke!

IN ORDER TO HEAL WE GET TO FEEL

(words by Adam Roa)

These words are ringing truer right now than ever before.
How beautiful that we get to feel what it’s like being ALIVE!
And even when it is so painful, sometimes. Often times, lately.
All the sadness, all the sorrow, all the anguish, all the pain…

Maybe your experience is completely different; maybe it’s filled with joy and pleasure, and that’s completely valid, also.
Each journey is unique, and each psyche gets to unfold in its own due time. Plenty of ebbs and flows for all flavors.

It took millennia of ancestry to bring us to where we are. The timing of what’s unfolding, in comparison, is a blink of an eye.

What’s going on out there is a reflection of what’s unfolding within each of us.
With all its shadows and light, each gives meaning to the other, all coming from the same Source.

AND, we can no longer afford to haul our past, our pain, and our trauma along where we are headed; it is time to compost it all!
It all serves its purpose, until it no longer does. It is time to let go…
This is a one way journey to Oneness.

And while on this journey…
May you see the beauty that is your existence, with all the shadows, for they give meaning to light.
May you choose love over fear, as you feel and heal within and without.
May you remember the ephemeral nature of it all, joy and sorrow, sadness and pleasure, and everything in between.
And may you finally realize the Oneness that we all are, unconditionally, eternally.

As deep as you feel it

Some days I lay face down on the grass, feeling caressed by the Mother, feeling her heartbeat, as she soothes my pain and drinks my tears. While I hurt feeling the collective suffering, I feel her heal.⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
Other times I stare at the sky, the marvelous vastness and beauty of the mystery beyond my human mind’s understanding of all that’s out there. I bathe in the sunlight, healing my deepest crevices. I reach for the clouds and stars with my voice and prayers, as I cry a little inside… ⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣
The Moon is my witness and my nightly companion. As she ebbs and flows dancing with shadow and light, my heart does, too.⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
I cry, I sing, I dance, I laugh and weep, for all those who can’t. ⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
I feel the pain for all those in suffering, physical and mental. The root is all the same.⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
I bow to all the angels who are holding us through these times; ethereal ones and the human ones in the frontlines and hospitals. ⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
I practice compassion for all those who continue on the path of shadows. For all those who choose to repeat rather than evolve. You can’t rush healing or learning. That I’m coming to understand the hard way. ⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
The times, they are changing, and my heart remains open, as I gather her pieces and remember the dance, once again… ⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
“…go as deep as you feel it, ⁣⁣⁣
the deeper you mean it, ⁣⁣⁣
the more the stars can hear it. ⁣⁣⁣
The deeper you mean it, ⁣⁣⁣
the more healing can happen, ⁣⁣⁣
the Earth heart opens, ⁣⁣⁣
connects to your own…”⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣

The Rising Phoenix

Notes from the heart . . .

Redefining yourself is never easy. But just like the seasons change, so do we. It is not easy but it is natural. You get to look at your old layers, stories, patterns, facets that no longer represent you and learn to release them. Judgement too. It never served you anyways. One by one, slowly and maybe painfully as they’ve become part of your skin. You get to shed… It may hurt, it will hurt, but one thing you’ll soon learn is how strong you really are. You’ll see.

Shadows may come up, monsters from under the bed and skeletons from the closet will all make themselves at home in your house of fear. Old patterns may attempt to replicate themselves, over and over, until you learn to observe them. Self-doubt will show up to join the party, all uninvited taking up the space you need to breathe in…

You may find yourself in an inner storm of questioning everything, self-worth first and foremost, sanity next. It is all part of shedding. Just like the caterpillar, you may not know what’s coming. You can choose to let fear masquerade you from the inside out… Or, you can choose to trust. Allow a spark of hope to ignite within. It’s there, it has always been, since the womb. Find your breath, bathe in it. Find the eye of the storm deep within you and allow everything else to fall off. Doubts, fears, stories, patterns, limiting beliefs… Let their madness storm up around you and stay strong in your breath. It will all pass… It is all passing… Keep breathing. Let the cocoon fall off, you have wings now. It is time for you to learn how to use them!

Spring is here. Allow yourself to open up to the sunshine and let yourself bloom. Like the wildflowers, your redefined beauty may pop up unexpectedly in the most random places. Nothing is random. You brilliance will be noticed exactly where you are meant to be. Come through the cracks of the pavement and spread your beautiful petals toward the light. Rise, step up, grow, embody. Like the phoenix, ignite from your ashes…

The world awaits for your magic. Now go ahead and spread it!
