“I'm not myself today….Maybe I'm you.”
Many years ago a friend gave me a button with that quote on it. I thought it was hilarious. It seemed like the perfect slogan of a codependent.
I'm thinking of it now in a more cosmic and connecting sense.
Starting over has presented me with lots of logistical challenges that I could have never imagined.
But beyond those logistical frustrations, I notice how beginning again challenges me to trust the process even more,
and at timesI slip into fear and confusion.
These past couple months I am struck with how many feelings and situations have arisen that capture the issues that my clients and I have addressed through the years. (fear of loss, lack of clear direction, grief, feeling disconnected and creatively blocked, overwhelmed, fatigued, disappointed by unrealized expectations, etc……..)
Not that I haven't experienced the issues before, but so many re-erupted and converged in a very brief time….).
So I stop and recognize that even though it is frustrating to go through some of these experiences, they are sharpening my therapeutic skills and of course preparing me for a new awakening !
"It's not soup yet"---another quote I like, another reality, but nonetheless--
When you are anxiously awaiting some kind of answer or closure and all you know is that "it's not soup yet"---
How to rest in that space of trust, and into the lap of the wise woman rather than slipping into the default mode of frustration, judgment and impatience?
I needed a sabbatical by the end of February--I was tired and overwhelmed with the grief of saying goodbye and the logistics of moving. I have now had 2 months of putting my therapist hat on the shelf except for phone consults.
I have cocooned in my home, unpacking, reliving, reflecting, rejuvenating, regurgitating, remunerating,
I recently shared this frustration with a wise friend and she said "You can be happy now!"
I heard her say that and it felt like the veil had lifted, like Glinda the Good Witch waved her magic wand over my crown chakra and my wise woman resurrected.
"I can be happy now---what a concept----do I really get to be happy now?"
On Sunday a dear friend and I blessed my new office by spending the afternoon doing SoulCollage® together.
(I will be writing much more about this magical process--now that I am an official SoulCollage® Facilitator !)
As many of you know, I have been a part of the healing journey of many people living with Lyme Disease.
Right before we moved, Paula Quinlan provided this video sharing about her experience with imagery and Lyme Disease. You can hear her inspiring story on the video below.
Book Release "The Tick Slayer"
Perry Louis Fields, Olympic Athlete has now released her book "The Tick Slayer". In her book, she offers a detailed holistic accounting of her healing from Lyme Disease. Like Paula, she is a courageous and determined woman who's journey of healing is very inspiring.
She also features a free audio download in which she and I discuss the power of visualization and I then provide a guided meditation incorporating Perry's healing affirmations.
In addition, Perry offers my audios for sale on her site--
