I came across this blog, rise like the phoenix and sing your fire song, and it spoke to me on so many levels.
It has been two weeks today since I returned from an amazing gathering in Nova Scotia where I opened the doorway inside myself to a world that had been waiting; waiting for me to discover, I believe, from the day I was born.
It has been quite the journey to get here, requiring lessons in abandonment, loneliness, infertility, marriage, separation, divorce, owning my rage, and beliefs of being dangerous, discovering feelings, allowing vulnerability and compassion for myself, owning, and finally, revelling in my intensity…just to name a few. As I look back I can see the stepping stones, each one laid out in front of me just waiting for me to take the step or to make the leap. Each time I chose to leap my world changed; each time I chose to not leap the stone re-emerged at another time. We are always moving towards our greatest SELF, even if it doesn’t always feel that way.
