I’m sending this out on the day I’ve completed my 50th year on this planet.
It’s been about 2 1/2 years since I’ve written. Some of you I’ve had continued contact with through client sessions and the monthly Soul Salon Gatherings. In the fast paced, ever changing world of online information, others of you may have forgotten that I used to send these letters with musings and updates from my mentoring practice.
When I look back at the time around my last post , so much has happened. In May of 2016. I had just come back from a deeply moving retreat with my mentor. I suspected something wasn’t quite right, but couldn’t have known I was sliding into a very challenging time with my health, which would bring about new awareness in so many ways. I also couldn’t have foreseen circumstances, some monumental and some ordinary, that would create profound shifts in how I operate. I’m still integrating some of what I’ve experienced, as I suppose we are all from day to day. At least, if we’re prone to contemplating what the hell life is about and who we are within it.
What I’ve been up to
In addition to navigating health challenges, I’ve lost a grandparent. Secrets that belonged to others were revealed to me, which precipitated me being less secretive and more authentic with my tender bits. Our household has navigated shifting routines and patterns. I’ve spent most of the past 2 years in a sort of hibernation and narrowed focus. There have been deep lessons in self care, as well as learning to receive support within my circle. While I’ve not been seeking new clients, I’ve remained grateful to those who have been part of my practice during this shifting time. I’ve learned to be ever more compassionate, internally and externally. I’ve continued to hone my skills in both of those arenas, through reflection as well as structured learning.
What I’m doing now
My energy is back and I’m feeling my lens widen. In the past six months I’ve been naturally moving back into the rhythm of things I enjoy when I’m more well and whole. I’ve enjoyed the return to playing in the dirt, creative projects and more time spent with people I enjoy.
I’m happy to say I also have more internal space for clients once again. I continue to support others in becoming more comfortable where they are in the moment:
- Honoring truth
- Honoring when there are whispers of truth, but it’s too scary to act on them
- Honoring those times when what’s true is, the truth of the soul can’t be felt or heard because there’s too much in the way
