These are the days, you guys.
I feel it like a drumbeat in my chest.
Like a piper waking me up, whistling me out beyond what I’ve always known and into a foreign-familiar homecoming.
We’re here to heal. To come together. To drop the illusion of separate, competing interests.
When you win, I win. When I lose, you lose. Our planet feels this. Our populations feel this.
But these are the days of moving out beyond even these dichotomies. Of focusing not on rightness and wrongness, winning and losing, but on wholeness. On recognizing our unavoidable part in a bigger story and listening, whole-heartedly, BIG-heartedly, to how we want to shape that unique part.
Jen Louden wrote a practical, prophetic piece on this before America’s election this week.
Julie Daley is writing beautifully about this kind of power.
Amy Oscar is a light for this Way.
And, goodness, we’re in such amazing company! I could link and link and link to the souls that are living out “These are the days!”
In this same vein is my deepening conviction that we who make livings from healing, heart-centered work are not in competition. We are soul doctors and soul nurses and spiritual therapists for a planet.
We each have a specialty, unique to us. And there are folks, many of them, for whom our specialties are most needed.
So. Bringing “these are the days” to these very weeks that finish our year – weeks when nearly all of us need soul support as we up our sugar intake, our activity levels, and time spent with dear ones who trigger our less-than-best power moves…
Here are some soul specialists to assist you this season. We are, all of us, trust tenders, and we’re consciously trying to embody the most healing, transformative kind of power.
