Sometimes things get weird

By Jen Peer Rich

Sometimes our weirdest behaviors are actually the unspeakable expressions of grieving, healing and transformation happening inside. Energy always finds a way out.

Waking up is full of recognitions that hurt. It’s sad to realize we’ve been victimized. It’s heartbreaking to realize we have been stretched into such painful dimensions by outside hands and outside situations. How can we not hurt for what has happened? Once we realize the state of our pain, how can we not just break down and freak out? How can we not feel angry and overwhelmed? And sometimes that breakdown shows up in the world through behavior. And that’s OK.

Open the door to this turbulent human experience and let it all arrive into your heart. Go ahead and fall apart. Don’t judge the pieces as they collapse. Let the weirdness come and go and honor it as your most sacred and important work. This inner unfolding is yours to behold. Only you can appreciate the forging happen inside, you know it, because you live it. SO WHAT if you’re a mess? Honoring the weirdness of transformation means that we are consciously aware that something magical is happening inside in all this breakdown. As much as we stumble and make mistakes, there is a great unfolding underway.
