Unfurling... like a bird finding its wings into freedom

There’s something I want to bring into the open today. Let us have this conversation – because conversations about what is hidden, what seems ‘wrong’ or shameful, is where our healing happens. In talking about our hurt, our pain, our doubts, we are opening the door for RELIEF to settle into our spirits and our bones. So: let’s talk about what a Spiritual Awakening feels like (note: continues in Part 2 “How you can navigate the pain of doubt and isolation on your journey of spiritual awakening”.)

The Journey Of Awakening is magic. And – there are moments when it hurts.

When we feel all alone on our journey.
When the people around us don’t seem to get it.
When we doubt the very experiences that set our soul on fire with passion and joy.
When we feel deeply abandoned, an abandonement made all the more painful in contrast to the overwhelming love we felt just days before.
When we don’t seem to ‘get’ it.
When we’re seemingly the only one whose life doesn’t become rainbows and unicorns ever after…

So I wrote you a letter. From my Soul to Yours. With love.

Unfurling... like a bird finding its wings into freedom

Dear Awakening Soul,
Your Pain Is Real.

And underneath the glimpses of magic, of sparkles and beauty
that has the power
To take your breath away,
in one fell swoop, utter awe and immense gratitude,
There is, too,
The nagging suspicion that you are going insane.

Why else would no one
Seem to notice
The crazy coincidences,

The utter amazement,
Of hearing a loving, tender voice
Urge you forward on your path,
Against all logic,
Against all reason,
Against everything you have been taught
To worship
To consider unnegotiable
In its importance,
In its RIGHTness?

Teachers. Textbooks. HIS-tory.
The utter REALNESS
Of black and white,
Of numbers on white paper,
Or the smell of dusty ancient texts,
Telling you
That this is so,
This is the world
And life needs to be lived a certain way
If you are to come out of this
Well not exactly alive
But relatively unscathed
Relatively unhappy
But then that’s the way things are
No arguing please.
We know best,
And don’t you start
With your finger pointed towards the rainbow
There is no pot of gold
So stop wasting (y)our time
And get in line.

Why else
Would your best friend
Look at you worriedly
As you stammer and stare
Unsure how to convey
The utter amazingness
That you have tapped in to
When it really defies words
And needs to be lived
Before you can look at each other
With love in your eyes
And utter knowing
That you, too, have seen beyond the veil.

The pain, my friend,
Is real.

So, the truth is,
You are not going insane
You are simply
Tapping into
A new dance with life
Where the veils grow thinner
And the wisdom
Of ancient times
The beyond
Lies wide open for you
To peruse
To browse
To savour, one delicious discovery at a time
And linger over
As you would
The most precious gift
Most gorgeous meal
Made with love
By your soul
For you to unravel
And finally
Feel yourself coming home
Rising up in your fullness
And smile towards the world
