This Chair Has Stories To Tell … #1

20190604_111710_HDR_Signature

A Nurturing Chair

Filled with compassion, healing energy and Love.

I am an Energy Worker.

Holding a space for people to …

be vulnerable …

be real …

be their calm/holding it together selves …

be their messy-life selves …

be their stressed-out-to-the-max selves …

be their sad and scared selves …

be their angry selves …

be … exactly who they are.

No judgement here.

This chair holds sadness, fear, hopes and dreams.  It is a pathway to self-worth, self-care and self-love.  It opens a door to understanding, forgiveness and healing … and hope.

#1 – A husband has died in the mid-night hours.  His wife called to see if I had anytime later the following morning to see her, after the funeral-home details were dealt with.  Coming in, would fill her up enough to deal with the days ahead.  She came in.  Trying to hold it all together.  Be strong.  Afraid to feel too deeply, or she’d never stop crying, the dam would burst.  She didn’t want people to see her ‘not in control’.

The dam needed to burst.  It did.  A torrent of emotions poured out of her …

sadness …

anger …

fear …

so darn vulnerable …

heart-break.

After the emotional flow released … she was able to ebb one minute at a time.  Breathing and getting through the days and weeks ahead.

She asked, and gave herself permission to receive  in the following weeks and months …

Healing touch.

Compassion.

Love.

She did not have to walk this walk alone.

This chair, holds each person sacred.  I hold them in Light and Love.

The story continues …

Thank you for joining me on the journey!  Share with others if this resonates with you.

Details on my Energy Work Here.

 

A year ago today …

… at this moment … writing … I was having a heart attack.  Needless to say, the days that have made up this past year, have been a gift.  I have been blessed beyond measure and have been surrounded with love on so many levels.  There have been days filled with joy and days that have been tough.  I’ve realized being vulnerable is also being strong.  God is ever-present and works through the hearts and hands of people I know … and don’t know. At my age, I’m still learning, making mistakes, having adventures and open to saying “Yes!”, more than ever before.  There’s alot of stuff I’m not good at, and alot I don’t know … but there’s so much to experience, to give and to receive … and it’s all based on loving the gift of life.

Today, realize precious moments.  Watch for miracles.  Tell someone you love them.  Forgive someone.  Say you’re sorry.  Close your eyes and put your hand on your heart and say, “I love you” … to yourself, and picture those who you love … who need your love … and send love out to the whole wide world … because the world needs your love.

… and what you send out … you will receive.

A heart only grows bigger with love.

Sweetness of friendship

Friendships begin at a young age … expanding out from the familiarity of family, into a new realm of the unknown.  Yet, thankfully, when we trust this unknown, our circle of people grows … our circle of friends.

Friendship is both tears and laughter.  The silly little things that can get us laughing so hard we pee our pants, and have tears streaming down our faces, as we clutch our stomachs and catch our breath, to losing someone we love and our hearts are breaking.  It’s the sweetness of the friendship = love, that makes it so.  Would we trade it in?  Wish we never had shared the laughter and the tears, for however long it lasted?  Not me.  You?

Friendship is being vulnerable and willing to trust.  That breaking heart thing?  Yep, anytime we open ourselves up … expose who we are with all our warts and loveliness, we let the light of who we are shine and we’re accepted and loved – YAY – or not, we’re judged for our warts – BOO – (but then it’s not true friendship, is it?) … our hearts can break.  Would we rather not be vulnerable for fear of someone’s judgement of us?  Or, perhaps, trust and be gifted with a most amazing friendship when we’re recognized for the  light within us rather than the warts?  I’ll go for it.  You?

There’s an ebb and flow with friendships.  Sometimes we give.  Sometimes we take. Sometimes we’re the student.  Sometimes we’re the teacher.  We live, grow, and change throughout the years.  Sometimes, as we grow, we take a turn that our friends do not. Then, it’s letting go and trusting the new path will bring new friends.  Sweet.  It’s how life works.  Trust me!

Friendship doesn’t cost a penny … yet … friendship is priceless.   Let’s celebrate our friendships, let’s laugh and share wonderful times together.   Let’s experience the little things in the dew, and tomorrow our hearts will awake in the morning, refreshed.

Friendship.

How sweet it is.
