I wanted to share a realisation that I had today during what we call a drop in - an embodied and internal felt senses meditation, if you will. During this meditation, I was drawn to look at, feel into and really experience a crystal that I have on my desk.
I realised that this crystal that I walk past and have occupy my desk, every day is more than just an ornament.
It is beautiful
It is flawed
It has bits that are broken and dented
It has many different shades - light and dark
It holds different meanings to all
It holds energy and inspiration
It supports and holds space
IT IS ME
AND it was a great reminder that it can do; and be; and have all of these qualities and experiences at the same time.
Its ok to be in the dark depths of pain and suffering.
It is also ok to feel pleasure and and joy.
independently AND simultaneously.
You can be both beautiful and 'flawed'.
You can be 'broken' and whole at the same time.
You can be alone and hold space and energy for others.
You can still stand tall with a dark and damaged foundation and...... that foundation can grow and change and develop into a bright and beautiful future.
This is the realisation and reminder that I needed today and felt like maybe you needed it too!!!
