A prayer for your weekend : 19 October 2019

Photo: May you be willing to commit to yourself

I see you, living by the patterns set down long ago, numb and blind to where they have long been pinching you.

I see you, waking up, grieving, hoping, burdened by just how much work there is to do.

You are more than your patterning. You are worth the effort.

 

You are worth it.

You are enough.

You are more than your patterning.

 


 

Once you are awake, you cannot go back to sleep.

Do you feel it, that growing awareness?

 

The last few weeks, months, year, I have had a growing awareness of my own avoidance, my own patterns of behaviour which are not serving me any longer. From a history of dissociation, I’ve come to the point where I watch myself doing all the things to avoid That One.

You know when you should be studying for a test, but all of a sudden the dusting which hasn’t needed doing for months Must get done first, and maybe that cupboard needs sorting too? I’ve watched myself go on these little spins before finally, finally! coming back and doing The Thing.

And it’s not as simple as telling yourself to ‘just do the thing’ would make it seem. There are some very real feelings involved. Because when you are avoiding The Task, you are also avoiding The Feelings. Feelings that might be scary, overwhelming, painful, unwanted. Without awareness, without compassionate awareness, these feelings cannot be tended to.

And so these last few weeks, months, year of growing awareness have been drawing me towards making a commitment to stop avoiding. And it is time for me to stop.

I have been so resistant. It is far more comfortable to stay asleep and unaware. And yet…

Once you are awake, you cannot go back to sleep.

We harm ourselves, in our ignorance. We prevent our own healing, our own fullness.

 

What is it time for, for you?

Because you are worth the commitment.

I see you, opening tentatively, bravely raising your hand to help transform this world.

I see you, refusing to be held down by the shackles of fear, rising up to stretch into your fullness.

Your full Self is welcome.

You are capable. You are enough.

It is time for wholeness.

You are strong enough.

Photo: May your fears lead you deeper into connection.

Original photo by Aleks Dahlberg.

 

I see you, braced against this world, feeling like you must fight to hold your space.

I see you, soft and curious inside, longing to lay down your armour and connect with life and Love.

I see you, guards up, protecting your soft spots from further harm.

I see you, feeling too vulnerable to step into your full Self, yet longing to all the same.

 

You are worthy of freedom.

Your wholeness is worth embracing.

You are worth keeping safe.

You are needed.

Photo: May you have safe space. May you be safe space for yourself.

I see you, off-kilter, trying to find your feet in this messed-up world.

I see you, longing to know there is room for all of you.

 

You are worthy of gentleness. You are worthy of love.

You are worth keeping safe. You are worth holding space for.

A prayer for your weekend : 14 September 2019

Photo: May you touch the holy.

Original photo by Francis Nie.

I see you, going about your mundane life, ticking all the boxes of chores, of work, of the shoulds.

I see you, longing for deep connection to life, to the Divine, to all that is holy.

You are worthy. You are wholly welcome here. You are connected.

A prayer for your weekend : 7 September 2019

Photo: May you be willing to claim your fear.

Original photo by Daniel Kuberek.

 

I see you, fears threatening to swamp hope, old patterns of mind and behaviour rising up to be shifted and resolved.

I see you, struggling to trust the age-old promise that all is well, all will be well, all manner of things shall be well.

It’s okay to be afraid. Your brain is trying to keep you safe. And what your brain doesn’t recognise, it doesn’t know can be safe as well.

 

When I say “claim”, I don’t mean stand in your fear or let your fear consume you. I mean be willing to take ownership, to not live in denial, to face it rather than let it control you.


You are enough. 
You are strong. You are worthy.
