What it means to be spiritually awakened…

spiritual awakening

Eight years ago I slipped a disc in my back that required me to spend a few weeks incapable of much movement and therefore bound to my bed with a lot of time on my hands to contemplate my very existence and review the direction in which my life was going. It was also the time that set me on a path on which I find myself today and is the reason for my spiritual awakening.

Finding peace when grief strikes

Grief

It has been nearly two months since I have written my last blog post. It has been two months since I have sat down nearly every day with my laptop in hand ready to write yet no words came. A thousand stories have been swirling in my mind, busting to jump out on the page and  yet when my fingers hit the keyboard, I couldn’t find the words to type.

Last night, as I was getting ready for bed and  preparing for what is to come today, I made a mental note to write today’s blog post when I woke up. The plan was set. Until I woke up at 3am with a story bursting to be told. So I, like any other writer who gets a hit of inspiration at odd hours, took my phone out and Whatsapp-ed myself the ideas that were pouring out of me. And at 7am this morning, inspiration hit once again and there was no choice but to pull out my Mac and start typing.

A conversation I had with a friend  the other day about the importance of releasing our attachment to our egos and seeing and treating the world around us from the place of love has been echoing in my mind so it is no wonder inspiration hit me at 3am.
