Most of us have been fortunate to be on the receiving end of kind, supportive, loving touch. Perhaps a childhood memory of a kiss or a hug after falling down and getting hurt. Or the shoulder touched in giving support, or a warm hug of understanding, maybe a squeeze on the knee. Your hand, held.
No words needed.
It was perhaps, the briefest of moments.
Compassion. Love. Presence.
Receiving support. Not needing to understand or explain.
In that moment … you softened, your heart slowed down, maybe you were able to take some deep, needed breaths.
You were seen.
You were not alone.
Touch is healing.
We feel the energy from someone’s touch. It can be powerful, as much as it can be gentle. They are giving. We are receiving.
It’s vulnerable to receive.
It’s a gift we give ourselves. Allowing ourselves time to soak up some kindness offered, some compassion given. That loving touch accepts us, our authentic selves, no matter how messy, scared, snotty, angry or hurt we are.
It helps us heal.
Pure and simple.
Kind. Compassionate. Loving. Touch …
My encouragement to you: At one time or another, you will be on the giving – or receiving end of healing touch. Simply be present in the moment, either way. I believe it’s the connection of Spirit that brings us together. To support, accept, to strengthen and to breathe in the blessings given in the moment.
Blessings and Love,
