Over the past several years, I’ve been healing the wounds from my childhood. I’ve unknowingly been given an awakened opportunity to see in my “now” adult mind, how I really experienced my upbringing, the relationships I was in, the roles I played and the experiences I had.
Throughout my personal journey, all that I have learnt together with the tools I have discovered, I now share with the world knowing confidently that these helped me not only survive my ordeal but to forgive what I thought was unforgivable.
So, when I returned to my journal, I played around with the words on the list. I revisited and revised my list of transformations by adding the phrase “How can I serve from the heart?”
Yoga and meditation are powerful forces; they hold their own independent spiritual authority and joined together they are a dynamic duo of spiritual practices abound.
We are always in the right place – both in the darkest moments and in the light. It’s from knowing the the low moments that we are able to truly appreciate the richness and the sweetness of the highs.
Sometimes our near grown children become our teachers as they introduce us to fresh ways to do things and creative ideas to embrace. There are moments when we find ourselves talking to sensible, responsible beings who feel like new friends. These wonderful times are followed, sometimes instantly by confrontations with sullen, shouting teenagers who act as if we were the enemy from whom they must escape. Our own feelings grow confused, we feel sympathetic, then resentful, wanting to help them and yet wishing sometimes they would go off somewhere and leave us alone.
