I recently came across this wonderful quote by Wayne Muller:
“Your challenge is not to keep trying to repair what was damaged, your practice instead is to re-awaken what is already wise, strong, and whole within you, to cultivate those qualities of heart and spirit that are available to you in this very moment.”
In the past, I put a lot of energy into healing the things that made me feel broken. I attended seminars and retreats that assisted me in releasing the emotional pain, anger, and stories of victimhood that ran my life. I also learned processes that supported me in helping others do the same.
But, something was missing.
I noticed that after these experiences it often felt like there was empty space inside of me where the hurt used to reside. People leaving these healing seminars often looked dazed and a little lost as they described feeling peaceful, yet empty as if there was a void inside.
But, we can never truly be empty. Our souls were calling out to us the entire time.
One day when working with a client on healing her history, I instinctively supported her in filling that empty space in her heart with the light of her soul. That wise, strong, and whole part of her that Wayne Muller described. Her healing experience felt more powerful and complete and I have included that step in my processes ever since.
We don’t have to have a special experience to re-awaken to our hearts and spirits. It is something we get to practice every day. Every hour. Every minute.
Your soul is calling out to you, even now. It is always with you, because it is the essence of who you really are.
Will you answer it’s call and cultivate those qualities of heart and spirit that Wayne Mueller describes?
Imagine how great it would feel if you did.
I think you want to. I really do.
If you would like support healing your history and reconnecting with your beautiful, wise, and empowered spirit, I would love to help. Contact Me Here to learn how we can work together to make this happen for you.
