Happy New Moon Loves,
Endings and beginnings. Sunday was the last day Maha Rose at 97 Green street was open to the public.
Pausing to reflect this morning in meditation on the past seventeen years. Thinking about the successes and the failures. It's an interesting thing with spiritual business, the personal is professional. Healing as a business. It's a delicate art and filled with grey areas: our own challenges, our own blind spots. Most of the people I've met who are in the healing world, myself included, have come through the doorways of our own wounds.
Then here we are, working professionals but still unhealed healers. And the thing is- until we are totally enlightened (someday, hopefully...) we will remain unhealed healers.
It can get messy. This thing called life. It's messy. My favorite description of reiki from Luke Simon, years ago, I think it was you Luke? said that reiki is like combing out the energetic body. We can get kinked up, tied up in knots, karmically tangled with others. Humans and healers alike, it's messy.
I'm grateful for some time to slow down, reflect on these past chapters and vision and listen for what's next.
Right now I'm still in a tender place of letting go, feeling all the feelings, surrendering, letting go some more.
Here's one of my all-time favorite photos of Maha Rose, taken by Monica Kapoor. Our door in the fall, circa 2010, the shadow of the tree that I watched grow over the years. Here with no leaves, having let go completely, surrendering to the next season of change and growth.
Thank you God. Thank you Goddess. Thank you Maha Rose. Thank you Amma. Thank you to all of you for being a part of it. Thank you Mariko Tamegai for the distance reiki on Sunday, to help me slow down, cry some more, remember Green street in the early 2000s, remember there’s more to write. More to remember. More to come.
If you're free this eve come to Trae Harris' New Moon Glo Up Ceremony. We have online workshops and healing sessions available for the next month before we go into hibernation/sabbatical/retreat September 18th...
