The pandemic is serving a purpose to slow us down, to “go within” and reflect on what is important in life. I call this period the time of the collective and personal “shadow” where those aspects that we swept under the rug are presenting themselves. When we are more aware, we have the choice to heal them. It is important to embrace all parts of ourselves with compassion and non judgment.We are called to “anchor and spread the light”, to return to our spiritual center of peace during these challenging times.
“We can hunker down in fear, or look for the opportunity to care, each in our own way. Our kindness is a light. The more we extend it, the brighter it becomes and the more darkness we illuminate. We can give without any expectation until goodness flows from our depths, presents new possibilities, and expands our sense of purpose.” Jean Houston, author of Jump Time: Shaping Your Future in a World of Radical Change
An inspiring poem written by my husband to awaken the Divine feminine in all of us:
My Love Letter to the Divine Feminine Within
By Dave Birr
Touch me with your warm tenderness and share your strength of allowing me to welcome all the feeling of your body in my body, every sensation and chill of presence the magic of the moment that connects us to everyone, and allow me to share you in my touching others that they may feel your love incarnating in me. May the beauty of your vibrant colors fill my eyes with joy and let your ears be the altars where I remember my innocence. Speak to me always with the whisper of truth, so I can not forget what my heart wants. Let me live as your child, blessed by your cradling.
