Singing is still one of my favorite things. I use music as therapy. I feel the words do matter. I sing what I feel. If it’s sad music, it helps me cry. If it’s upbeat, I feel happy, I have used songs of heartbreak to get through a broken relationships and most recently sacred songs to help lift up my spirits.
Change is the only constant in life. I had learned that lesson at a young age. I was 9 when my mother died. It was sudden, tragic, and final. A door was closed and the woman I knew as mom could no longer hold me and touch me.
One of my favorite poems is Invictus, by William Ernest Henley. My grandmother would read this to me when I was small until I learned how to read for myself.
I love the words, the images that swirl in my head when I focus on them.
Later as I would read it out loud I would connect to all types of emotions. I was longing to connect to source and my soul. This spoke to me and still does.
It’s a good time to review your goals for 2019 and see if some changes are due to your foundation. Whether your foundational changes are spiritual in nature or more concrete like my house, it is always healing to release the past and know you are safe and whole in the light and love of Source.
