“And she always had a way with her brokenness…She would take her pieces and make them beautiful…”~R.M. Drake
When faced with difficult circumstances sometimes we’re left feeling incomplete. That feeling often leads to depression, anxiety and other emotional issues. When left untreated or not addressed, these issues eat away at our spirit. Some describe the feeling as being broken. In a way you are because you’re out of alignment with your spirit. Spirit gives you life.
Those feelings you get are an indication from your spirit that it needs healing. The hope lies in your ability to heal yourself. Healing is possible and most certainly can resolve feeling broken. What matters is not that you’ve been broken but how you put the pieces back together.
I admire those who manage to endure the unimaginable yet they come back stronger than they were before. Think of Tina Turner aka Anna Mae Bullock and how she overcame drug addiction and physical abuse. She found freedom through meditation after being introduced to Buddhism by a friend. Tina found a way to put the pieces back together right when she was about to give up. That’s alchemy. She’s an alchemist. We’re all alchemists but we’ve forgotten how to use our abilities.
Sometimes we use our power unconsciously because it’s a part of our nature. We use our power but can’t recall how it works. We believe that someone or something else is responsible when the outcome is in our favor. So, we downplay it as coincidence, luck etc.
We externalize our power instead of acknowledging that it’s within us. We allow people, circumstances and other outside influences to gain control of our feelings. This throws the spirit off because it’s been pushed out of the driver’s seat. It’s not used to being a passenger. I either lost you there or you’re following me.
You may be able to think of more but I can guarantee at least two takeaways from this:
- No situation is permanent unless you choose to make it permanent.
- Sometimes you break because you need to in order to become what you were meant to become.
Love and light,
