For myself I find the stillness through ancient and traditional earth ceremonies. Drumming, working with a group of like-minded people and healers/Light Workers and plant medicine. What seemed like a subtle shift was actually quite profound. I was able to heal my inner wounded child from holding onto false beliefs I was told and let go. It wasn’t about forgiveness but about healing; to see, embrace and love the little girl within. When we go through a healing process sometimes the things we hear from others to help us really need to sit and marinade for us to absorb the information. In working through some of the old yuck and sharing my deep vulnerability with others was I really able to start to move forward.
I left my healing ceremony with a quiet mind. When I say quiet, I mean not a single thought, other than where is my crazy brain? I know it’s working but what is with the quiet? I didn’t have a million thoughts as to what do I do next, grocery lists, bills, work, kids, pets, problems, etc. So I just sat and let the silence soak in. I felt like now that I have peace of mind, what am I to do with that. What am I to do with a blank slate? To have no thoughts, worries or concerns racing through my mind. Who am I? Then I realized that I am me. I AM. I am at the beginning of creating a new future full of purpose and to work towards doing a job I love and the best way to do that is with a blank slate. One can’t come up with new ideas and listen to divine guidance if the mind is constantly overwhelmed with thoughts/worries/concerns/problems etc. So as discomforting as it was at first to have such a quiet mind I realized that now I get to put new, positive, uplifting and empowering new thoughts in there. Wow! I just received a new lease on life. Of course I was fortunate to have this pointed out to me as well when I was addressing my concerns of having such a quiet mind to others and what was I going to do with it.
So the lesson I want to share here is; though sometimes the healing you receive may seem quite subtle, it can actually be quite profound. The healing that is provided during a session or ceremony of any kind doesn’t stop working when you leave but it continues working hours, days and weeks following the session. When we are open to healing and letting go great strides can be made within.
