I stayed quiet for days. Because the truth is my confusion and overwhelm meant that I was not ready to speak to the current state of the world and the most recent events in Charlottesville. And I know I am not alone when I say, that as a highly sensitive, empathic woman, I feel the weight of the pain that spans across the nations....
Yes I am a White Woman and so you may say, who am I to understand or speak to this? And I admit there is so much more for me to understand, and that I am learning. All I know is I feel it all and I have a voice that is here to offer up love.
Today on the blog I am speaking about how we are either contributing to the hate, pain and war conversation and creating division, or we are contributing to love and healing. And I wish to also say that despite what people may say, it is okay if you have not shared any of your thoughts on this topic. This does not make you any less committed to the new earth.
Today on the blog I wanted to talk about soul work, sacred contracts and the importance of energetic work and how when we are on the path of awakening and rising into our souls work, we will hit rocky patches and times when we may slip back into old paradigms. Times when we need to call on outside support. Do not be dismayed. This is all a part of the process. I do not know of any awakening woman, soul leader, coach, lightworker or entrepreneur who does not have these moments. And whilst how this shows up for you will be slightly different to the next person, there is one common theme that occurs, a feeling of being stuck in a spiritual awakening rut and that we are back where we were five, ten years ago. But I am here to bring the good news that you are not where you were, even if you may feel like it at times.
Decades ago when I heard the words "feminine" "femininist" or "divine feminine", what often came to mind was a bunch of topless hippies, with shaved heads holding up posters saying, "End patriarchy." To be honest it made me uncomfortable. Firstly because I hadn't yet accepted that as a woman, I wanted to and had a right to be treated as an equal, and secondly, having been harmed by unhealthy masculine in the past, I was coming from a wounded place. Let me just say, any harm done to women by man is 100% not okay and yes we will explore this another time. Being repelled by feminists gone wild made me realise that my trigger had more to do with me and the society I was raised in than the feminists I was judging. I didn't have the awareness of how disconnected I and we as a society had become, or perhaps I didn't want to awaken to the truth that I too was a feminist.
I have been in a deep space of integration over the past month. Between moving out of our apartment and into our temporary home, to three days later immersing myself in the divine presence of Sorya Surya No as I embarked on a five day Live Training in Sacred Circle Work, at Prana House, to a few days later visiting my family in Sydney, becoming a doTERRA consultant and guiding clients on their Sacred Soul Print Journeys, to making plans for building our home, life has been gratefully full, and it doesn't seem to be letting up anytime soon! Suffice to say, it is with great JOY that I press publish on this post that has been sitting in draft form for a few weeks now as I found pockets of time to work on her.
"What is a Sacred Soul-Print and how can I start embodying my own?" I get this question all the time from women who are curious about the work I do. Many are feeling lost and confused about their life purpose and are feeling the call to do some work that not only lights them up but also feels meaningful and aligned with their gifts, passions, personality and life experience. So today in my latest Soul Musings, I am sharing with you exactly how I began to connect the dots of my own sacred soul-print and how you can too.
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.
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.
Welcome beautiful. Here you will find the musings of my soulspeak infused with universal truths on love, conscious awakening, ancient wisdom, grace and flow.
