Woman, put your ache first.
In your pain is the medicine you seek.
In your pain is the guidance from your soul.
Go slow, gently, hesitantly even, but go.
Descend to your depths.
There are no hacks in the creatives’ underworld.
Let it brew you, steep you, dissolve you.
It will distill from you the most wonderful essence you can gift the world.
We need your art, your medicine, your embodied prayer.
We need it in order to restore our collective home.
Collectively we are the salvation of the world.
We are living in rough times, no doubt and no sugar coating, AND these times are the times we have been preparing for.
The burgeoning of personal and collective healing cannot be denied nor stopped.
When you start feeling anxious or overwhelmed know you are being invited to breathe deep belly breaths and slow eeeeeeeeevrything down.
It is life bringing you back into center and reminding you of what’s truly essential in life.
When we surrender to this invitation, we are lifted into alignment and sacred action.
So many times it is our anxiety & mental pressure to make sense of things that keep us from the clarity that wants to emerge.
go for a walk,
go to the ocean or the trees.
Make room & be receptive to inner guidance.
When you’ve been in pain for long, pleasure can become scary.
This plays out in our relationships or in our careers.
Consciously or unconsciously, feeling good can come with shame. So we push our partner away by finding faults or withholding our love.
Doing financially well can come with guilt. So we do just enough to get by or when we do well, we unconsciously seek to sabotage.
The body is always seeking to harmonize into what its default programs are, so if it’s functioning from pain, trauma, loss, or poverty, it will continue to want to remain in the chemical state it knows until it is shown different.
Our limitations live within us, woven in our flesh, in our organs, in our DNA, in our body memory.
Its imprints live in our center, which I reference as our Wombspace. For men, the Hara space.
Until we descend into this center of creation and upgrade our ways of operating, the body will continue on default, and you will continue to try and change it through some external way of doing or thinking, only to arrive eventually into the same results.
