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 […]

The hurt and pained bully and love

Someone asked to know more about what I referred to as sub-personalities and parts in the last post: The somatic imperative and meditation — she thought that perhaps it was the drug withdrawal that created these parts.

That said, I have encountered hundreds of young folks through my work and social media who are also coming into this sort of rapid maturation of the spirit. We are waking up all over the world!

I experience my life now as far better than ever before…

I am alive. This I know and appreciate in ways I simply couldn’t at any other time of my life. *** A couple of musings to share: no more walls in my detox, but congestion still occurs as cellular debris marking every traumatic moment in my life moves on out… Detox…the nitty gritty Somatic mysticism: […]
