Treading this nameless path 2017

2016 seemed to have been an emotionally challenging year for many of us around the world.

What we believed in got shaken.

Who we believed in got overthrown.

What we wished for did not happen.

As a facilitator I have heard endless stories, seen flowing tears, felt soothing embraces for many whose life course came to a halt, who suddenly lost all that they have ever built.

These are instances where your own sense of identity gets shaken. Who are you now that the title, the friends, the circle are gone? Who are you through these tears, fears, pains? Who is this numbed person? Who are you now that you broke open?

What if we run away to hide and let the storm calm down,” whispers the mind

Darling, this is the time to be, this is the place to stay,” hummed the bleeding heart.

In moments when you bleed profusely from within, these are moments when you will be called not to run away.

These are moments when you will be called to let the wound open and let it heal – for it knows the way to it’s healing. There are moments you will be called not to hide, for there is power and growth in that one vulnerable phase of yours.

But then can you hear those cries of our human mind? “Plan, plan and plan! Where are we going now? What do we do now? What is the next destination? We have to find new grounds!

How to plan when you are still healing? How to dream when are you emerging from that storm?

Why plan when holding on to your breath is the ultimate act of savior you can think of right now?

As much as planning is important, as much as setting goals and intentions play a defining role in one’s life, I feel 2017 calls for to let life unfold the way it will for each one for one.

We may be taken on paths we would have never imagined to

We may meet people with whom we would not have connected to naturally

We may love as the heart heals, a love deeper and bigger than ourselves.

We may travel lands our soul have been on lives before

We may embrace life as never before

I say “may” for there is a simple condition to all, it all rests within our willingness to trust the signs from life and to act without second guessing. 2017 will be the year to act from within, not from the guts but from the heart.

This heart pain of yours, this breaking, this burning, this churning and this storm in your heart was purposeful. It was the only to make you become so aware of your heart till you reach a point where the only choice you will ever make is to listen to HER and lead your life from this Heart Centeredness.

2017 whispers to you to embrace your heart’s whispers, the path, the rest and the tribe will be shown to you. Not because you cannot see it, does not mean it is not there waiting for you.

Hi Megha,

Man, did I need to hear this. So true. We need to embrace the inner-feminine more than ever... embrace what our heart says and go with the flow, rather than forcing and being logical 24/7. Now, I actually need to implement this for my dreams and intentions for 2017. I feel like I'm being tested yet again to see if this is what I really want, but perhaps I'm trying too hard again..

I love reading you - it resonates how the echos from the four corners of this world are indeed carrying the seeking of sisters.. I wish you flow and flow and flow with whatever is aligned with your highest purpose.. But beyond all, I wish you align with all will ever serve you best.. And you are right - it feels like we are so many being tested right now. Do we let go? Do we keep struggling? Or do we trust in that we do not see yet? And what if this while we simply choose to listen to HER and not question no matter crazy it seems.. loads love light and vibes

yes yes yes

"use me for the purpose that your wisdom chooses

guide me on the path of thyne own goodness"

technology shows our emotions spread out around us

lets walk forward with love, not run away in fear

in the breath, in the space between inhaling and exhaling

i will put my attention there

Indeed - we are so much in this same phase right now. we tend to believe we are some loners scattered around the world but in truth we are more connected than ever and I feel this connection will deepened as we awakened to the deeper love within.. Much love

I love this!  I relate so much to what you wrote here, and I love that question- "Who are you now that you broke open?" Beautifully said!

Who are we now that we are broke open? And what if this was the one openings we most needed to learn to love deeply like never before? I am grateful reading you and we are so much connected, much beyond our understanding. Humbly, I am still growing in awareness of same. Much love Carrie
