All Wrapped Up

All Wrapped Up

There comes a time and space where each of us longs to curl up in a snuggly blanket, to feel the pressure on our skin, the cocoon of warmth and connection.  This need for contact, pressure, and restriction is also the driver for the invitation of struggle, suffering, and conflict into our lives.

With difficulty pressing in upon me, I will always still find the same comfort and ease on the inside if I allow it.

It is simply a matter of the material of the wrap and the lens with which I see it that determines whether I feel it as nurturing or limiting.

The wrap is just a reminder to feel what’s on the inside – to know the true essence of me, undefined by the fabric of my experience.

Buried Treasure

Buried Treasure

What if the darkest times, the largest struggles, and the greatest grief were treated as gold, jewels, and trinkets?  A treasure box shoved deep down underneath brings richness, bright and full of promise when opened.  Shadows that no longer remain hidden sparkle with hope, prosperity, and joy when realized as buried treasure.
