⭐️ I found this picture of me this morning- my 40th, drinking tea, (alcohol was long gone by 40) fancy dress-steam-punk-day-of-the-dead. Scream appropriation if you wish!
Back then I was unaware of such things... it was fun and honestly at that point showing up as ‘another character’ was preferable... ⭐️This pic reminded me of who I was- the good and the bad.
Five years on, I have died a thousand times... and I sit here today wondering what happened to that fun part of me. A part that got lost in all the healings, teachings, family dramas and life lessons... I have gained much, my practice has deepened, my understanding has expanded but I lost a lightness of heart.
This concept of living death intrigues me... that we can wake one day and be a different version of ourselves. .
The Shamanic Way teaches us to make an alliance with death, to know where he is at all times, that he may not eat us one bite at a time. That we may live a full life and in doing so, get out of this life alive (conscious living and dying) .
All these version of who we were still live somewhere inside of us.
Some are quiet and content, others still screaming to be heard...some others, awaiting their time of resurgence. .
Peeling back the layers of story, again and again, we change constantly but often in a strange, barely noticeable, fashion... we reveal the next version of ourselves.... and realigned again and again with a destiny that is more fitting...perhaps in line with who we are becoming lifetimes from now. .
This picture has changed things yet again this morning... I invite back ‘lightness of heart’ with a smile and open arms. I celebrate 🎉 the wisdom gained these last five years and honour who I am becoming each day.
It makes me wonder who I will be when I wake up tomorrow, but who ever she is I know that she too will trust the process and nod a knowing good morning to death 💀 .
What a difference a day makes! .
