It's all a process. Healing is hard. It takes a great deal of courage and strength. Most people avoid it because it's too painful, too difficult if they are even aware they need to heal. You must face the things buried deeply inside, resolve them, put them to rest so healing can take place.

The universe is infinitely patient. She will keep giving you your lessons over and over again until you deal with it, get it, or not, and She will still keep hitting you over the head with it until it's healed. You don't necessarily have to know what are the emotions that arise. They don't always have a name, but you can open to them fully, send them love, integrate them.

They often just melt away when love is radiated to them. Fear is the opposite of love. You may be able to feel sadness and love at the same time, but fear and love just can't be there together. We can intend that it be love, most of the time. I hope for that.

"What you bring forth out of yourself from the inside will save you. What you do not bring forth out of yourself from the inside will destroy you."
Gospel of Thomas

Butterfly, flutterby, floating by,
Where are you going? Tell me why?
Peacefully soaring, gently soft,
Light and airy, effortlessly aloft.
Translucent wings, edged in ebon,
Lemon and gold, silver and saffron.
Do you own the key to love and life?
Unaware of pain, hurt, and strife?
Do you feel the fear of fragility?
Loss, grief, vulnerability?
Beautiful, open; you seem so free.
My heart as yours, this I wish for me.

Each being is unique and on a unique path. We all learn in our own way and at our own pace. We can give our gifts of advice, care, love, or passion to a loved one, but then with love it must be released along with our expectations of them and their choices.

Our relationships are mirrors that allow us to see ourselves more clearly if we look honestly at our reflection in them. We can learn so much from them if we are willing to look deep inside with love and compassion and understand why we are being irritated or hurt by their actions.

We have the power to be like an oyster and transform the irritations and the hurts into pearls. With these pearls of wisdom, we can learn to release the desire for control and instead enrich their lives as we enrich our own. Trust the universe.
Create magic. Create love.
