Why Wait for a Dark Night?

Why do we wait so long before we reach out to get help?  I’ve heard again and again that we wait until there’s a dark night of the soul.  Until we can’t survive a moment longer without doing something.  Change… yes, it’s inevitable. 

How we change and when we change can be a choice. No, don’t roll your eyes, I know you’ve heard it before.  I know, I’ve been there, and more times than I would like to admit.  Yep, I resonate with the whole wounded healer thing.

I had excuses for the pain.  I really did unload tractor trailer trucks of 50-pound steel drums, stacked above my head, by slamming them into my legs before they landed on the ground.  One week my legs were so bruised and in so much pain that I rolled a kneeling pad into a denim apron to cushion the impact.  I couldn’t stop working, I owned the business.  I couldn’t hire someone, it wasn’t making money, yet.  Even with family help, I broke.  There was a legitimate reason for the pain in my body.  But no matter how many doctors I saw, there was no solution, there was no diagnosis.  I look back now and say, thank God.

Why?  Because the physical pain I felt was the surface work.  The real pain was hidden, emotional, old mixed with new.  Roots that went deep and rarely if ever surfaced.  They were hidden, ignored, buried and even if I’d known I wouldn’t have understood.  Understanding took hindsight and a lot of work.  Yes, it took many dark nights of the soul.

That’s why, when I found a safe place and began to heal, I did everything and wanted more.

There is an understanding in the Shamanic world….. we do the work, the heavy healing, the really deep dredging and unearthing of the pain and trauma, so that our clients, years later in our practice can think, “That’s easy”.  Yes, every once in a while, I’m working with a client and they have such a breakthrough with a simple treatment and I think to myself…. “Wow, I wish mine had been so easy.”  Then I think again and in hindsight I see my journey of learning.

So, again, I ask “Why wait for a dark night of the soul?”.  Are you in pain?  Are you frustrated with your life? Perhaps merely satisfied and not excited, wondering, is this all there is?  Am I meant to do or be more?  Are you getting nudged and just don’t know what it all means?

I’d love to sit down with you.  Perhaps all you need is a little spiritual guidance, or an illumination to see your world a little clearer.  I have regular office hours for one on one sessions and I’m always happy to take a moment to chat on the phone to see if the fits right.  Reach out before the dark night or after it, if you’re in pain, confused, frustrated, I can help.  To make an appointment call Robin 860-709-3903.

Healing Circle-Spiritual Community

Have you ever been part of a great circle?  A Community that supported one another and was always there when someone was in need? 

I’ve been lucky to have been a part of a few amazing communities, first when I was young, because my dad was a volunteer fireman, I was part of the group of firemen and their families.  I remember each man and his family as if they were my own…. because they were.  They’d march in parades and fight fires, but they’d also put on new roofs and rescue teenagers when cars broke down.  They never hesitated to be there for one another.  They gave and they didn’t hesitate to ask for help when it was needed.

I’m part of a long-standing Reiki Circle.  This circle was held at two other homes before it came here to Spirit of the Lotus for Monday night, Healing Circle.

A circle is more than a random get together, it’s a community.  It’s about coming together, community, family, support, learning, practice, giving, receiving and sharing.  It’s not about showing up only when your hurting, although there is no better time to show up.  It’s about being there for anyone who needs help, love, and support as well as having an entire circle of people be there for you.

Each of us know that if we have real health issues, Reiki Circles, Healing Circles are a great stop gap to booking a one on one session.  Believe me, I have my healers on speed dial and I’m not afraid to call. 

That said, there is nothing better than a community of like-minded, spiritually guided healers that come together with one intention….

To support each other.

I’m shaking up the Monday night circle. Each week will be healing based but different modalities:

  • 1st Monday will be Sound Healing, bring your instruments. 6:30 – 8
  • 2nd Monday will be All Levels, beginner to advanced.  6:30-8:30
  • 3rd Monday will be Advanced Practitioners only.  6:30 – 8:30 ****by invitation. If your interested in joining the Advanced Group, please call me first and we’ll chat.
  • 4th Monday will be Sacred Fire and Drum Circle.  6:30 – 8

Cost: $20 per person.

NOTE:  August will have 3rd Monday with Holistic Community Practitioners and a Sacred Fire & Drum Circle.  No Charge in honor of the group.

Please join me and a core circle of healers that have been getting together for years.  If you’re a beginner, see how being in a circle amplifies your strength, intuition and knowledge, if your advanced feel comfortable knowing your only being worked on by those with the highest of intention and vibration.  Enjoy a fire or the sound of crystal bowls, share your favorite instrument and your voice, if you’re not ready to share, listen, absorb and join us for the fun of it.
