It can seem like the entire world is falling apart right now and in a way it is, as the 3D glue that holds the world together has dis-integrated completely. Not only is the veil gone, so is the opportunity to be fully asleep, ignorant of what is going on in the world.
Every lifetime has a soul mission for healing and a life purpose designed to bring closure to the healing cycle. Every healing path mirrors your soul’s desire for wholeness, to release pain and trauma so you can know joy and peace.

Every wound leaves a physical scar that is different in appearance from your normal skin. It is a lasting reminder that there was once a broken place there which is now healed. Every emotional wound also creates a scar, one that is invisible in the physical world, but very real in the emotional and energetic reality.
In truth, I’d never really acknowledged just how challenging it would be for me to put my struggles down in writing and then share them openly and wholeheartedly with others. I had no idea how it would feel to become completely vulnerable and transparent leaving myself nowhere left to hide.
This year I’ve fallen apart. Everything I once held dear has been torn down and ripped away. My beliefs have been shattered, my sense of spiritual connection has disintegrated and turned to dust, and my physical self has crumbled with ill-health and disability.
I know life requires us to be present to everything – the success and sadness, the peace and pain. Learning to be with all of our feelings is fertilizer for growth and healing. It’s just not that easy.
These days I feel like I’m getting a Masters degree in dealing with grief and loss, and I hope I’m not depressing you. It’s just that right now I can’t pretend that everything’s okay. Because it’s not.
