For a dear friend who asked me what I learned after a long recovery from anorexia and for all of us — I found that, without a doubt, who I am is more than this human body and mind. I know this, not because I studied with enlightened beings, even though I did. I know this because I lived it. That is the power and tender treasure in this human journey, especially those that […]
When we feel most lost and disconnected, hold us steady. Remind us we are rooted firmly and held in a deeper place. Amen
Within the great unlayering of my heart and the holding of each precious piece, I found the most beautiful treasure — the gentle, natural setting down of all that was no longer needed — knowing nothing real could ever be lost.
I offer this prayer in quiet surrender of every last piece of what I could never sort alone. I hold only this sacred space in its place — in honor of pure love. Amen
Remind me of the tenderness in going my own way – finding just enough courage to trust my own heart. Amen
Help me to move in the way of the heart. Free my attention to be gently guided — holding unresolved experience a little longer — letting go of unanswered questions — opening even more to love. Amen
One day I looked inside, expecting to see the desperate searching, the longing to fit, the crying out and pushing down – the one who struggled to piece it all together. But on this day, I found none of it. I realized I had it backwards before. All of these pieces weren’t really meant to fit neatly together at all. They were meant to be free.
Because I had grown tired of all the trying so hard to find my way back to my own heart, I found peace in the simplicity of the surrender and natural movement that happened in reconnecting with and being the quiet prayer that had guided me ever so gently back to itself.
I began to filter life in a gentler way, holding and honoring moments as they unfolded, shifted and transformed into the next. This motion of deep reverence and unconditional love became my unspoken, continuous prayer — sure footing in a world in the midst of its own deepest healing.
Thank you for each heart that has answered the call of Love, showing up in a world of great suffering and great beauty, being exposed to all if it — often intensely. Thank you for each quiet prayer from each human soul holding a sacred space because the choice was made to look inside or to reach out for answers, to do what was required — to make this sacred journey into the heart. Thank you […]
