The Art of Healing

On March 5th, I had to have surgery. Not something elected, but a “have to” surgery. I was in an accident (not my fault) back in August 2017 and ever since then my life has been turned around. Certain tasks we take for granted, like raising your arm up, are challenges for me, and pain….oh the pain. I try to stay on a natural, holistic approach to health but since this that has been a challenge. I have went from a detoxed body, to one full of pharmaceutical chemicals. One of the hardest is the burden it has put on my family. My husband, that is the ultimate bread winner has had to miss work and my Mom, who is her only income, has had to miss as well.

During this transition, I have learned a lot….and had big eye opener moments. One thing I learned is that I am not a good patient. I detest being limited in what I am doing, and having to wait on others to help me or do the things that need to be done. I have learned the true meaning of humility. Another is clarity. When you are at your lowest, you really find put how much people are there for you. Unfortunately, the people you love, and think we’ll be there aren’t. Surprises are abundant during this time. Through the pain comes clarity in many forms. This situation has brought about a big transformation in my life. I view things a bit differently. The snall things are important again. Slaving away at a job where you’re just another body is ludicrous to me now. The time I’ve missed with my kids, especially my younger one. The trips that were supposed to be, but were cancelled because of work. I could go on and on about the sacrifices we make foe people that wouldn’t do them for you. One of the most important things I learned is who I truly AM. I have found more balance, peace, and self confidence…things I was not expecting. I am strong enough now to face those challenges I was running from. I feel a deeper connection to my Spiritual Path and I can hear my intuition clearer. I have found a new voice, one that was muted by empathy towards others. I will stand up for myself, and not allow someone to dump their BS at my feet. Yes, you see people have a karma they have to live out and I will no longer take that on for them. No, NO! We all have life lessons, and who am I to keep them from theirs?

It seems it took a lot for me to hear the voice of the Great Goddess, oh but now She has my attention. It also took a lot for me to get out of my own way and allow others to help me, love me, and to allow my body to heal. Yes, as you may have guessed it, my priorities have truly changed, with things and people.

Hopefully you will not have to go to these drastic measures to turn your life around. We stand in our own way many times, and point our fingers at others. We have to look in the mirror and see our Soul, and face our Shadow. Always surround yourself with people who support you and know your worth. YOU know your worth, and dont sell yourself out.
