I was guided to write about my experience of miscarriage, as I was helped by a few of the personal stories I read online. If this issue is still taboo, then I hope this also contributes to opening the conversation wider and sharing our loss and suffering with open hearts.
I hope that this blog can be of comfort to you or someone you know.
We are at a beautiful time right now, if we have the courage to see it.
The illusions are being stripped away, like the sun rising lifts the mists and shines a light where before there was darkness.
We are being called to step forward. We are being called to fall deeply into Big Love.
At the beginning of 2018, I gave readings for a word or phrase to act as a guidepost or guiding light throughout the year.
Now we come to the end of the year, how did your journey map out?
At the start of the year, I also gifted a reading to myself, and my Word for 2018 was “Jing”. I love to see how a word or phrase is given shape over the course of 12 months.
As we offer ourselves greater connection, self-care and nourishment, we will naturally come into balance with the Earth. And vice versa.
Anyone who has ventured into the root of any physical difficulty to the realms of the mental, emotional and spiritual will undoubtedly have encountered the work of Louise Hay.
This week a beautiful friend gifted me with Rise Sister Rise by Rebecca Campbell. I highly recommend it.
Rebecca's writings really connect with the energy I am sensing at the moment, in the midst of eclipse season, the recent blood moon and the gorgeous Summer we are having here in the UK. This energy is all about the rising feminine, the sacred feminine of the Earth.
I feel now the rising energies of the sacred feminine. I see this showing up in women reclaiming their power and in men returning to true connection with the Earth.
There are a great number of ways to connect to the spark of life: Art, Science, Nature, Prayer.
It does not matter what your word is or how you connect. What is vital for your spirit, your wholeness and the alignment of your being, is to invite this greater power to fill your life.
To be truly happy, we each must do our own self healing.
We will need assistance, and sometimes guidance, along the way. Ultimately though, only you can do the work to heal and transform yourself.
This takes hard work, plenty of energy, dedication to yourself and time to rest. It might even mean taking time out of your day to day life and normal routine.
The process of self-examination is not easy, but there is a silver lining.
Solace can be hard to find during any kind of loss. Yet comfort is what the heart most longs for during experiences of grief and mourning.
We lose loved ones through death, illness, and even dementia or divorce. Loss occurs in many ways and grief is an entirely natural response, seen in humans as well as in animals.
