The Struggle

I am struggling.

You are struggling.

We are struggling.

How could we not be?

Our mental, emotional, and spiritual health is lower as a collective than I’ve ever experienced in my life. At least that I can remember. It breaks my heart.

How have we lost our way? How have we become so deeply disconnected from ourselves, each other, the Earth? How can I make a difference in this world?

These are the questions that crowd my mind at four in the morning when I wake with an anxious heartbeat and feeling of despair in my stomach.

Like many of you, 2020 was one of the harder years of my life. Last fall, I checked out. I consciously checked out. I made the choice to let go and step away from my practice, both personally and professionally. I just couldn’t do it. I needed to turn away for a time to simply be in the present moment and face some of my own deep-held traumas and shadows.

I knew it wouldn’t be forever. But I also didn’t know when or how I would return. It took some powerful (sometimes painful) and transformational experiences to turn me back around and bring me back to myself in ways I never thought possible. It reminded me that every part of our journey has meaning.

As I approached the summer of 2021, there was a shift. My inspiration was back. My passion was re-ignited. There was a light turned back on in my heart that had been missing for some time. It was like the universe gave me a hug and said, “Welcome home, my friend.” It felt good.

And now I know how I can make a difference in this world.

By being me.

By shining my light out into the world.

By coming back into practice and creating a healing oasis for the lost and broken souls who are seeking love, connection, and support. A safe space free of judgment, hate, and shame where I can remind us that we are not lost or broken at all. We simply have forgotten or misplaced our connection to self and source in a world that easily extinguishes our light.

Believe it or not, we chose to be here at this time. We came to this world with a purpose and it certainly would be a shame for us to lose our way entirely.

We are the creators of our dreams. We get to write our own stories. We need to remember that every morning we make a choice to wake up, face the darkness and say, “Not today. No, not today.”

Let us stand together and refuse to lose our way. Let us support each other in reuniting with ourselves, our hearts, our instincts. Let us beam our lights together so brightly and beautifully that the darkness of this world does not stand a chance at pulling us apart or down any further.

Let us hold hands and join hearts and rise together to reshape this planet we're standing on.

The time is now.
