For the past fortnight I've had chronic back pain and our car broke down, so I've been forced to stop and consider things. I ask my higher self questions.
Firstly, why I might find myself in such a situation; what external and internal factors have brought me to this position?
What does it really feel like to go into the space of vulnerability?
Who do I go to for help, who can I ultimately trust to help show me what needs to be addressed?
Why is asking for help so difficult for most of us/me?
What's the project mirroring in my personal life?
If my issue's alignment, what am I not aligned to? How can I change it?
What's the recurring theme when my back/car goes?
What else needs to be noticed to bring me back to full health?
Am I fully receptive to the help that might be offered?
In order to address these issues, I've had to ask for external help, I ask Spirit. I ask my husband Mark, who is a constant rock and a great source of support on every level. I trust him and love him and I know he will help me.
That feels good.
Then I go to Val McNamara whom I've also learnt to love and trust as a healer and a friend, who will gently help bring a shifting of perspective and restoration. I needed their help and they were more than willing to give it to me.
Working with so many different people, I also need time out for myself and sometimes, I just don't do enough or in time before something drastic happens.
Really, this post is about seeking healing when we need it, being prepared to feel vulnerable during the process but also entering into a space where we are asking and getting the heart connection with another, when we are prepared to let down the guard and receive it fully.
It's also worth remembering another's physical/emotional pain and often times the disconnection that happens from ourselves and those around us when we have difficulty in asking for help or wallow in the blame of it. This must have been an extra excruciating factor for the 'home mothers and children' but might also have been something experienced by the nuns. It's worth considering anyway.#Tuamspiritbabies
