In Part Three I share the rest of my lived experience with grief, the truth of impermanence as well as the five stages of grief and a special message to anyone who is experiencing loss as well as some practical support for moving through each stage. I hope that this serves you beautiful. Please don't hesitate to get in touch if you would like to be held throughout your time of grief.
When we go through illness, grief, loss and trauma, it's inevitable that if we make it out the other side, we will not be the same person we once were. We almost feel a sense of responsibility to share what we know and where we have come from. We grew in places we thought we never could. Places people doubted we would. We have battle-scars, and sometimes it can be hard to relate to the world as it is today. We have a sensitivity and a deep empathy and compassion for people because we know what it's like to suffer or feel pain. Our hearts have been cracked open and stitched up, time and time again. And yet they are whole, and beating and pumping blood through our veins, stronger than ever before.
Losing a parent so young is not something I ever could have imagined to have occurred in my life. As each year goes by without him here, I continue to feel a hole in my heart, but the more I open myself to spirit, the more he reveals himself to me in my life today. I feel his presence almost everywhere. He sends little signs from up above guiding me and encouraging me on my path. The cancer ravaged his body until he was whittled down to skin and bone. To see my Dad go from a healthy, strong independent man, to a shell of his former self, was one of the most painful and confronting things I had witnessed in my life.
The past four years I have been on a journey of healing my relationship with the feminine. It has been a deep dive into all of the shame, trauma and pain, held in my womb. It has been a softening into my essence. A dance between light and dark. An allowing and a flowering. An opening and a tightening. I have not only had to heal my relationship with my own feminine self, but also my relationship with other women. As an Empath and HSP I felt lifetimes of collective pain encompassing me, knowing that if I walked this path I would not be the same woman who entered it once I came out the other side.
As an awakening soul you may be beginning to receive divine guidance and direction from various sources. One form of guidance is your intuition or internal compass. The intuitive voice is a powerful one, but it often needs a quiet, calm, reflective environment. Much like a muscle, the more you practice engaging with your intuition the stronger it will get. When you've spent a lifetime disconnected from your intuition, + you have finally have learnt to trust it, you must listen, even if what's showing up for you is not always pretty or timely.
Today we are looking at Laws Four To Seven From The Seven Spiritual Laws Of Success, By Deepak Chopra. We will explore a beautiful Vedic principle, including what it means to embody personal responsibility, manifestation, intention and desire. We will also be unpacking what it means to be detached from outcome, whilst being in alignment with source, as well as our dharma, higher self, and being of service in the world. The Seven Spiritual Laws are powerful principles you can use to fulfill your deepest desires with effortless joy. Inspired by ancient wisdom, Hindu and Spiritual concepts, which teach the idea that personal success is not the outcome of hard work, precise plans or a driving ambition, but rather of understanding our basic nature as human beings and how to follow the laws of nature.
We are emerging from the hibernation of the Wintry womb, to the lightness that is Spring. We have entered a time of celebration and taking aligned and inspired action from all that we have been learning and integrating over the Winter. On the night of the New Moon, I was intuitively called to do a little Spring Equinox Ritual. And whilst this post is out a little later than I had hoped, it is still relevant to us all as we emerge from our Wintry She-Caves into the light and fertile energy of Spring.
The past few years I have been drawn deep into the texts of the original and classic Spiritual Teachers. From the likes of Sonia Choquette, Marianne Williamson, James Redfield, Amma, The Dalai Lama, Carl Jung, Caroline Myss and more, I wanted to get my paws on them ALL. With such a flooded market of new age spirituality books, it can be easy to get lost amongst the fluff. I wanted get to the heart and bones of what I know to be true. I wanted to be taught by the best and to once again become the keen and enthusiastic learner that I always have been. One of those classic books was The Seven Spiritual Laws Of Success, By Deepak Chopra.
Welcome beautiful. Here you will find the musings of my soulspeak infused with universal truths on love, conscious awakening, ancient wisdom, grace and flow.
