Born to be Wild…

“The doors to the world of the wild Self are few but precious. If you have a deep scar, that is a door, if you have an old, old story, that is a door. If you love the sky and the water so much you almost cannot bear it, that is a door. If you yearn for a deeper life, a full life, a sane life, that is a door.”
(Clarissa Pinkola Estés)

Do you have a deep yearning for something more in your life? I often think about what it means to have desires and dreams of such magnitude you wonder how you will ever do it. To achieve the impossible may seem impossible at first. It may seem so far away from where you are that you dismiss it many times over. However, if it keeps coming back to you, then it’s time to stand up and take note.

Our soul calls us in different ways and desires and dreams are but invitations to places inside of ourselves we never knew existed. Other situations may be less desirable to you and that is the time to stand up and listen even more. It could be something old that keeps re-appearing or similar patterns that keep emerging through people and events. Whatever you may feel around these situations, always honour how you feel about them. Let it all emerge in its entirety. Let it fill you up to new ways of discovery. They are all but messages back to who we truly are. Underneath those layers and patterns is the Truth of Self. There is a Wildness that needs no name, nor a reason to tame. Only trust.

“To take the world into one’s arms and act towards it in a soul-filled and soul-strengthening manner is a powerful act of wildish spirit.”
(Clarissa Pinkola Estés)

May your Spirit remain Wild.

Claim Your Power

After recent events in my life, I was left thinking about what it means to be powerful. Does it mean being in control or having specific things in your life? Does it mean being positive and happy with where you are? What does the word power actually mean? These are questions that have been living in my mind of late.

Sometimes no matter how hard you try or how positive you try to be, life just happens and takes you by surprise. Often this is not in the way we hope or like but nevertheless it is what it is and it’s up to each of us to make the best of the situation we find ourselves in, even if it is forced upon us.

It has been a difficult few weeks but I feel such gratitude for my life and the people around me. I truly am blessed and I know that no matter what happens there is always love. Material things come and go but who we are and our connection to Source will always stay.

It is about owning who we are and how we feel in each moment. It is about being honest and true with ourselves. That is not always an easy place to be but it is authentic and I believe that is what it really means to be powerful. Truth is power and within that power to love and forgive, healing can begin.

“Recovery is realising that the fullness of life awaits you,
and that the difficult struggle will turn into the divine path.”
