Dearest Readers,

As I was lying in the corpse pose at the end of my yoga practice this morning my mind began to wander to the subject of today’s blog. What would it be?

“The transition you are in,” came the response.

I am currently in the process of shedding yet another old belief system. Yup, some more old BS that is no longer working for me has got to go.

Admittedly, it’s not a lot of fun. What keeps me willing to go through the Grief of Change is having faith in the fact that I will come to know a new freedom at the end of it.

Before I began this post I checked email. Not a good idea and a habit in which I do my best not to indulge. Email has a way of sucking the energy out of the creative act. But it turns out it was the right thing to do this morning for I was sent a quote by a friend describing perfectly the Healing Process and the Courage required to go through it.

“If you enter into healing, be prepared to lose everything. Healing is a ravaging force to which nothing seems sacred or inviolate. As my original pain releases itself in healing, it rips to shreds the structures and foundations I built in weakness and ignorance. Ironically and unjustly, only I can pay the price of having lived a lie. I’m experiencing the bizarre miracle of reincarnation, more lucidly than at birth, in the same lifetime.”

Courage to Heal by Ellen Bass and Laura Davis

I haven’t read the book nor have I heard of either of these women but they just made my day.

Inspiring Message of the Day: When I am in a time of transition I will remember that the pain I’m feeling is rooted in my reincarnation. I will practice acceptance and keep my eyes on the prize: Re-Birth.
