I also learned firsthand that when I knelt down to pray, I could not offer only the ailing parts of me for healing. I had done that all my life and being specific on the portions I invited Spirit to touch was self-serving. It never worked. Offering my heart to Spirit began my soul's journey and brought healing into all aspects of my life. Whatever healing I was searching for took a new form, shape and attitude each time I surrendered.
By asking for and offering forgiveness, I reclaimed my personal power and took responsibility for my thoughts, emotions and actions so that I am able to stand by them in spite of other's expectations. It is the process of knowing and honoring self, which ultimately sustains the comfort, joy and love in my life. I harness my personal power by defining the role I want to play on this earth.
Losing oneself in another in order to find and feel love is a sacrifice of a woman's innate beauty and the love that the ancient mothers inspired.
I have had many experiences, from visions to dreams, and altered states of consciousness, that opened doors for me to witness an infinite pool of wisdom in the universe. To know that I am part of that pool of wisdom has been the greatest gift.
