Turn Your Face To The Sun And The Shadows Will Fall Behind You

Turn Your Face To The Sun And The Shadows Will Fall Behind You

Early last year, I had a few dark days. I was struggling to find clarity and direction, and I felt lost in an abyss.

Something in me needed to die. Something in me needed to be re-born. Most of us don’t like letting go and letting something die, and I’m no different.

I know death is necessary. I know it’s part of life; part of life’s cycles – part of life’s ebbs and flows, but I was resisting it. And this was making it even more painful.

Usually I process these type of things privately. I’m not one for sharing my personal struggles. Particularly with many people. But I felt guided to share this particular struggle with my Level 2 School of the Modern Mystic students. And I’m so glad I did.

After sharing my pain and grief, I instantly felt better. And, as the hundreds of emails flooded in from my students giving me love and support, I felt carried…

So much so that already on that same day I was rising up again and finding my feet.

A message from one my students particularly touched me.

It is one of the most beautiful messages I’ve ever read, and if you are having a dark day or a tough time, let me pass on this beautiful message to you in the hope that it will bring you solace and comfort.

“Te tiro atu to kanohi ki tairawhiti ana tera whiti te ra kite ataata ka hinga ki muri kia koe.”

(This is Te Reo – Maori language, and in the english language the translation is,) “Turn your face to the sun and the shadows will fall behind you.”

Sometimes it can be a simple as reminding ourselves to do this: Move towards the light, and the dark will fall away.

Sending you blessings and a ton of love.

in White Light + Love,

You're waking each morning in a state of angst. Your heart is racing, the bed sheets are tossed and rumpled, and you feel sweaty and slack. Something is wrong; very wrong. Before you swing your legs out of bed and begin your day, you stay lying down and take a moment to analyse your life.  "What is going on with me?" you ask yourself, "I've been feeling this way for weeks!?" Your start to scan your life, thinking of everything that could be making you feel this way.

For some reason I'm rummaging around in Mum's old white bookshelf. I'm unsure why I got the sudden urge to pull books out, quickly scan their covers, and shove them back into the shelf. But then it catches my eye— a small, old, tattered blue-coloured book with a lily flower on the front. It's my Grandmother Jean's book; the book she wrote while she was dying of cancer in 1978, when she was only fifty-five years of age with two of her seven children still in their teens and living at home.

Male + Female rights, feminism

Heh, wait a minute. Feminism is about equality, not the belittling or putting down of men. What happened this morning in my yoga class is typical of the types of responses I'm hearing from women lately.
