After a day spent sorting through what remained of my previous account, I am constantly drawn back to this image. It is one that reminds me of the cyclical nature of life. This photo is an energetic connection to an intense period of growth, decay and renewal. It was upon this day that nature presented this small altar via my son, who after scavenging our yard found these small offerings. He gifted them to me as he felt they were of importance. Upon receipt of them I felt their significance yet I could not articulate or fully comprehend why at the time. I placed them outside the entrance of our home only to be further bombarded by a looming presence of something that yet again, could not be named. Outwardly, it would have appeared as if this day were unlike any other, but something within spirit was speaking... whispering within muted, inaudible tones and despite my desire to understand its ramblings I could not decode any of it. I knew that I was not meant to and it was not until later within the afternoon that I would understand their presence.It was upon this day that the beautiful matriarch of our family, my grandmother had passed. I was struck with a profound sadness and yet a confirmation that energetically, things were shifting. I had sewn seeds a new life that was germinating within the dark, deep soil of life and now, as a I walk amidst chaos, loss and transition I am reminded that this is merely just a very small, passage in time. All is not lost. I must await and listen for the messages that are being spoken to my heart. The willingness to let go of all that doesn’t serve me is my greatest ally. As I write this, I reflect upon the fact that this nest, now bare and barely resembling its previous form after wildlife scavenged and utilized what it could - has provided safety and comfort for so many other creatures,surpassing even the initial expectations of its purpose. And although it had remained discarded for a time, It merely took the right moment for the rediscovery of purpose through a process of renewal, one that is shifting and aligning my life to my hearts desire as I willingly let go of intentions, plans and expectations.
