guiding you through grief, loss, and new life

A Blessing for You

My wish for you is that you don’t get stuck in grief, that the losses you experience take you on a journey of greater wisdom and compassion. This blessing came from Medicine Ceremonies I participated in years ago, and the 4 words seem to capture it all.

more love

May you have more love, in all the ways that it can come. May you remain open to receive the greatest Medicine of all. May you let the love you have flow to others.

May you have more life. Not just longevity, but more life wide and deep. May you feel your spirit alive and at home in this body. May you have more opportunities to smooth out your sharp edges in relationship with others. May you know the place that is only yours in this world.

If you are stuck, please contact me

I’d love to support your process of opening to more love and more life.
