The best way to get rid of the pain, is to feel the pain. And when you feel the pain and go beyond it, you'll see there's a very intense love that is wanting to awaken itself. ✨ - Chopra
This beautiful quote really resonates with me... I want to take a moment to re-connect, and let you know what's been going on in my world. Recently, I've experienced five deaths in a six week period. It felt like life had taken a wrecking ball to my heart. I didn't know how to cope with all of the pain, the grief and the loss, so I tuned out the world and went within.
In my weakest moments, I have learned the greatest lessons. NOW is the only reality we have. It's through embracing the ebb and flow of life, hunkering down and getting real, being honest with ourselves and bravely sitting in silence and truly feeling the full spectrum of emotions, welling up inside, that we truly heal.
A monk friend told me, not to think. To meditate more, so I've sat in silence, meditating, allowing myself to feel my way into healing. As I did, an interesting thing happened. I developed a curiosity around what I was feeling. Even though it felt like I had fallen apart, could it be that through times of transformation, we're not actually falling apart, we're simply falling into a more authentic, beautiful, version of ourselves?
It's been a difficult time, that's for sure, however, I've also learned that not all storms come to disrupt our lives. Some come into our lives to clear a path for us. Embrace the storm, because sometimes, healing can be the end of conflict within oneself.✌#storms
