I completed a difficult time in my life and want to write about healing this trauma. I have many spiritual practices, including meditation, Course in Miracles, and using Unity principles. Because I’m a strong person and this series of events was so disorienting and upsetting, I decided to write about recovery from it. I was lucky: I got out of the situation quickly and was able to resume my old life in a matter of weeks. I’m going to attach a poem which describes generally what I went through in a year.
This was the year of trauma and illusion,
of new beginnings and abrupt endings.
This was the year of bears and owls,
curses and dark energy, of infidelity
and incest, lies and drowning
then reaching for light,
of betrayals and sinking in fear,
then rising out of the muck
to forgiveness, a year of meditation
to calm the mind.
This was the year of yoga nidra
every night, of John Vosler at 3:00 am
and Tara Brach at 7:00.
This was the year of opposites:
Illusion and truth
Truth and lies
Justice and mercy
Fear and love
This was the year of blessings,
of finally knowing what is important.
This was the year of standing up to abuse of power,
This was the year of losses; a house,
money and sometimes my mind.
This was the year of gain: Friends,
This was the year of coming home, to myself.
My book will include various healing methods I used to recover, as well as description of the mental disorder which can be so destructive to other individuals in a relationship. Just like alcoholism, it is cunning and baffling and in some cases, hard to detect until it is too late..
