Hope

Hope:

the feeling that what is wanted can be had or that events will turn out for the best.

Last summer, my husband and I bought a struggling plant that no one else wanted. Unfortunately, I don’t have much of a green thumb for plants or flowers. I joke that plants come to my house to die.

We brought the plant home and replanted it into a bigger pot, and left it outside, where our chickens proceeded to slowly eat away at its struggling tender leaves. We put it up higher than the chickies could reach, watered it regularly, and it flourished. When the cold weather came, we brought it inside. One by one, the flowers fell off, and it began to look sadder every day.

I began to think that this was one more plant that I had brought home to die. My husband felt that it was simply not getting enough light, so we moved it to where it could get more sun.

One day a miracle occurred! A flower bloomed! And, then another, and another, and it filled my heart with such joy. It reminded me that even in the darkest times, miracles happen. What we think may be dying may only need more light to bloom again. You are that light.

Return of The light

Return of the Light by David Copson

In mid-December, I came down with The Cooties. I tested positive for it a few days later. The first few days were easy peasy. I thought if this is it “I got this!” Then it turned into a sinus infection, which then turned into pneumonia. I ended up in the ER because I was having difficulty breathing.

During the first two weeks of this illness, I couldn’t touch the Light. I couldn’t hear my Internal Guidance System. I couldn’t “see” the Light at all.

I was shrouded in darkness.

I’d never had that experience before. Being shut off from the very essence of my being. I’ve always taken my connection to the Light for granted. I just assumed it would always be there.

When I told my husband about my experience he said that must have been very lonely. I started to tear up as he said that because he understood what I was saying. The Light has always been my companion. To have no access to that which makes me whole was devastating. One day, as I began to heal, the Light returned and I could see again.

I do realize that the Light never left but that is how it felt. I had many people sending me prayers and healing energy and even though I couldn’t “feel” it. I knew it. When I originally posted my experience to Facebook I was astounded at how many people had similar experiences. You can check out my original post here. I would love to hear if this has been your experience too.

Darkness is your candle

There is a quote by Rumi which says, “Darkness is your candle.” It reminded me that there could be no light without darkness and no darkness without light.

When I get caught up in fear, it is easy to forget that. Yet, those are the times when I need to take a deep breath in and fan the flames of my Inner Light. On the exhale, I can then breathe that Light back into the world.

Deep breathes calm the parasympathetic and sympathetic nervous system, our flight or fight mechanism. However, when we are constantly bombarded by fear either from the news or on social media, it is hard not to get caught up in the drama and traumas of the world.

If you feel overwhelmed, go on a walk or do this quick energy cleansing technique to reset yourself. And, remember to breathe.
