We have all had those days, or even hours, when we seem to experience every emotion possible. Sometimes it even feels as though the emotions are blending together and it becomes an overwhelming task to even consider separating them. Yesterday was one of those days for me.
Can you relate?
I knew from the start that this would be no ordinary day, it would be one filled with highs and lows. For these sorts of days I take self care very seriously and am mindful not to allow myself to get caught within the net of sorrow, but to accept it with love and allow it to flow through me, experiencing it with the gratitude that I am feeling this way because I have experience great love in order for there to be deep grief.
So what was so different about this day? Well, it was my boyfriends birthday, a great reason to be happy for sure. However, it was also my late husbands birthday and I was attending the funeral of a very good friend who had left the Earth plain recently. So as you can imagine, it was a pretty mixed day emotionally.
As I mentioned, self care for me was at the top of my list, so I made sure I allowed plenty of time to get what I needed done done and also for traveling to celebrate my friends amazing life and to say farewell. I took my combination essence Grief Soul Support during the day and also offered it out to friends who were attending, as well as gifting a bottle to her husband.
The celebration of life was held beautifully and the sacred space that was created was a true honour to her name and legacy. Laughter and tears were shared freely.
Before I headed home and back to the chaos of the children and birthday cakes, I decided to visit one of my favourite places on Dartmoor. A place that I often visit, but especially in times of reflection when I need to be held by the energies of the land so that I can tap into my journey with grief and walk beside it.
Brentor is a very special and sacred place, where the Michael and Mary Lay Lines cross and the church of St.Michael De Rupe stands overlooking the landscape from its lofty position.
Whilst sitting here I reflected, I remembered and I honoured. And words flowed through me.
“As I sit here, I see the vastness of the landscape, sweeping moorland floods into my soul.
As I sit here, where guiding lines cross, the comfort of this energy fills every inch of my being.
As I sit here, beneath the shadows, comfort surrounds me like a tidal wave washing over me.
As I sit here, in the moment, remembering those that no longer walk this Earth, I connect with the wisdom that is bled into this land.
As I sit here... I am.” ~ Morwenna Brady
