Turning wounds into wisdom

We’ve all heard the old cliché, “everything happens for a reason.” On some level I believe this to be true, and this belief has helped me accept many challenging events in my life.
Other times, I feel it can also be an excuse to spiritually bypass some big life lessons that we could benefit from.
One of many things I love about my work, is I am blessed to help people turn their life experiences into rocket fuel. What I mean by that is, I help them listen to how it could serve them, process the emotions and energy that has been created from this life event, and then use it for their greatest purpose and path forward.
In other words, I help people turn their woundedness into wisdom. 
Why is this important?
It could be so easy, especially during the times that we’re living in now, to be inundated with negative thoughts, get caught up in the constant media and news available to us, which then creates yucky emotions.  All of this energy bogs us down and keeps us from true joy and happiness.
Add to the equation all of the things that “happen” to us such as death, divorce, health challenges and more that feel out of our control.
It’s up to each of us to create the life that we desire and came here to live. I feel it is our responsibility (& we are more than well equipped for the journey), to show up and do the inner work so that it reflects in our outer world.
I am four years into turning the wound of losing my only sibling and precious brother into wisdom. It is the hardest thing that I’ve ever done and yet I know it’s part of my path.

It’s up to me to stay the course, have the awareness, welcome the healing and then I get to choose what I do with this wisdom.  It is a process that is well worth investing in.
I can stay stuck in my grief and let it eventually sit in my body and age me and not be living my life fully….OR…. I can take this wound and alchemize it into helping others on their grieving journey.
We may not have control of some our life circumstances, but we are at choice in how we process and handle them.  As humans, we certainly all have wounds.  It’s how we handle them that counts.
