I want to remind you or tell you for the first time, that we’re all in this together. That everyone has messy stuff that’s happened, that’s happening, that’s going to happen. So often, we feel alone in our hurt. Situations, they are unique, but the universal feeling of suffering and pain, it’s shared by us all.
It’s not just shared because we’ve all been hurt (God knows, we’ve all been hurt). It’s also shared because when one person suffers, we all suffer. Energy, emotions - it’s all vibration and these pulsations find their way into all of our hearts and psyches. We are not impermeable beings. We belong to each other.
When you’re exploring, falling into or running up against the hurts in your life, I want you to remember this:
You are not alone. The loss, the hurt, the anguish and suffering that you have gone through in your life, others have felt it too. Through their own sticky situations, they’ve also been hurt. You are never alone. Every human has suffered.
Your pain, it can be shared. There are people who want to listen to you, to witness your experience, not to fix you, but to let you heal your own heart. You don't have to heal alone.
What you do with your pain is what transforms your experience of it. You can bottle it away, you can explode it out onto the world and it can keep you angry and separated from others. You can also practice being with your pain, on your own or with someone who knows how to hold safe space. You always have options.
Your body, it holds answers. The things that you’ve tucked deep down inside, well they exist still in your physical and spiritual body. Movement, exploration, breath - you hold the key to a world of healing. I believe that you have the power to heal yourself. The answers, they are inside of you.
You can be a beacon of hope. Each person who chooses to look deep inside, to do the work, to heal and let go, they become heroes. You not only teach others through your example how to heal and thrive, but you become an example of self-liberation. You choose not to be defined by your pain.
With every little bit of hurt and pain and holding that you release and heal, you come into closer alignment with your truest self. You don’t need to spend your life being held by cycles of suffering. You deserve to heal and thrive. We all deserve to heal and thrive.
