Healing

December 19, 2010

December 19 – Healing. What healed you this year? Was it sudden, or a drip-by-drip evolution? How would you like to be healed in 2011? (Author: Leonie Allan)

I healed myself,

my hurts, my wounds

(both self-inflicted and those the inflicted by the world),

with talk and words

and questions and answers and

sleep and bubble baths and

friends and children and

meditation,

listening and dreaming and

hoping and letting go,

with walking and watching and breathing salty air

and listening to music that speaks to my soul and

music that tells my story,

and, and

and I healed myself,

my hurts, my wounds, my mistakes, my fears –

as never before

by crying

 precious

salty

streaming tears.

I just cried, sometimes,

at the beauty, at the impossibility, and the things I did wrong and

the things I did right

and the things I will never see again,

and against all odds

 I actually did feel

better.

    Wow! That’s beautiful. I wish I had been able to answer that question so poetically.
