whispered conversations

I started a new book!

I only stayed up till 1 am reading this time......

oh dear

This all very well and good if you get to sleep in a bit......

must stop before Monday!


There are good and true things happening within our 'circle' just now

Strong and healthy things and women who decide to be who they are

Speaking their truth regardless of initial discomfort and discovering the empowerment that results from this and the healing that follows

Excellent

I am proud to be a mary

I have found, over the past few years , that to speak MY truth is the very hardest thing to do. It takes much guts and practise and thought and ALWAYS feels better than fearful silence

In fact, speaking is so important, such an integral part of healing that I will talk about it some more.

I believe that things that are not spoken, remain, festering inside of us, until they turn into huge and dark energies that lie just underneath our skin. By speaking of them, even if we don't know where to start, we release them, by telling another soul we take the power away from this darkness, by sharing our pain we lessen it. Our words, however weak or puny or dirty or shameful they may seem to us, allow movement.

Healing

Growth

Often, just the very act of speaking something out loud to another person allows us to gain clarity and insight and to put our problem into its proper perspective and that was all we needed.

By listening to someone, just listening, we can allow them this insight. Other times we may need a helping hand to show us a better path to follow right now or to give us a different veiwpoint than the one that is currently blinding us.

This is how it works.

I know this to be true.

By bottling things up we infect ourselves with secrets and toxic shame and give darkness a handhold into our bodies.

We must speak, no matter what. We must not hold onto our 'stuff' and allow it to fester.

It is okay to be confused, it is okay to be lost and most of all it is okay to be wrong. In fact, often it is a relief to be wrong.

If we do not speak it, it cannot be healed.

Funny that.

If you don't know, say so

If you do know, say so

If it hurts, tell someone

If someone tells you, listen

This is a gift we can give each other

Healing happens here

Trust.........
