The healing process...

I have decided to embark on a thorough healing process of my soul. Not because anything special happened, its just that I have been feeling very happy lately despite the fact that I have been quite ill and been suffering from bouts of migraines and insomnia. So, my physical health is in the dumps. My eyes hurt from writing at nights, my ass hurts from sitting still for too long and the right side of my brain is being attacked with a hammer. So, my physical health needs a lot of work.

However, my spiritual health is on the mend. I am getting to the core of my soul again...the last time I was so in tune with myself was when I was probably high on something so many years ago...I guess sometimes you need a bloody wake-up call louder that a fucking church bell to get you back in focus. Warning bells....they fucking rang so loud and then knocked my head and heart out.

So, for no other reason than the fact that I am high on life, I am starting a process for my soul. This is how I started this morning. I walked to the mirror, I looked at my face properly,(I was surprised to see tears in my eyes) and I said:

I love you. The best thing I love about you is your heart and soul. You always seek the truth and the truth shall set you free.You know how to love and how to care, but you have never done that to yourself. Now, I promise to love you as you have loved others, I promise to care for you as you have cared for others. From now on, I will be your best friend. You are a great human being and I love you.


Then, I made a meal of vegetables and eggs, sat down and enjoyed myself.

That's what Oprah does to you.

for some funny reason i think it's different, difficult even sometimes to see ourselves as others do and love us for who we are...

however when we do finally achieve this....

nothing compares... cause with that comes the acknowledgement and power that we can be anything and everything we want....

I'm also on a a journey of self love and appreciation (in fact I just blogged about it!) It is unbelieveable the way we ignore the vessel that is our body. mind and soul.

I love me. Me is beautiful. Me is kind. Me is good.

Thanks for dropping by mine.
