The last couple of weeks have been intense. Anyone else feeling it?
Sudden endings - the death of my grandmother, the heartbreak of relationships, and life dishing out unexpected twists of fate - all leave me with little to hold onto.
I get to see where I'm holding on to things that don't serve me anymore. That I have to let go in order for something new to be born. I'm thrown into the unknown on so many levels.
I know the intensity of these times is bringing the deepest transformation. This is the medicine. The best medicine.
I've been incredibly grateful for the medicine of 𝘁𝘂𝗿𝗺𝗲𝗿𝗶𝗰. (Yes, that golden yellow spice you have in your cupboard!) Turmeric isn't understood as a plant medicine - as a teacher of immense wisdom and healing. But she is.
She came through a few months ago, asking me to work with her (again) and share her medicine with others. 𝗡𝗢𝗪. This is some of the most potent times of transformation we've had. One of the gifts of turmeric is that she guides you through 𝗱𝗲𝗮𝘁𝗵, 𝗿𝗲𝗯𝗶𝗿𝘁𝗵 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝘁𝗿𝗮𝗻𝘀𝗳𝗼𝗿𝗺𝗮𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻.
How could any of us want to remain stuck in life? In places that keep us small, don't nourish and feed us, and we aren't living our fullness?
The quote from Anais Nin rings in my ears - “And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.” At some point - we just have to take the leap.
We have to go through the whole thing. To step out of the fear of painful endings, often filled with all the emotions of letting go - heartbreak, grief, and sadness. It's only from here can we start to understand the wisdom from beyond, the flow of life, nudging us to grow out of our comfort zone.
Turmeric has a powerful bright light. The ancients recognized her as this - using her to purify the energy field and detox the body on the deepest levels. In this light, we feel safe and held - so much so, that we can step out of our comfort zones. We can leave the safety of what we are clinging to, and step courageously into the unknown.
What begins to emerge and take shape is something incredible. The process of transforming, of rebirth - the beauty, awe, gratitude, and reverence for being alive and having the courage to walk through the fire.
Because what's on the other side - 𝙛𝙧𝙚𝙚𝙙𝙤𝙢, 𝙚𝙢𝙥𝙤𝙬𝙚𝙧𝙢𝙚𝙣𝙩, 𝙖𝙡𝙞𝙜𝙣𝙢𝙚𝙣𝙩 𝙬𝙞𝙩𝙝 𝙤𝙪𝙧 𝙨𝙤𝙪𝙡'𝙨 𝙥𝙖𝙩𝙝 - is 100% worth the transformation.
