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.
