Until yesterday, I had no idea there was one.
My sweet daughter, just before leaving, wanted to wear the gold necklace she received for her Bat Mitzvah from her grandmother.
The delicate chain was tangled in a knot with no apparent beginning or end.
"Mom, I have 10 minutes, and you will never be able to untangle it. Even I can't see where to start," she said.
I replied, "Bring it to me. I love untangling knots like that. (I've always enjoyed to untwine things.)"
I sat down; the sun had set, and there was little light, it was quite dark.
The chain was so delicate and small, requiring patience, respect, and time.
The work began...
Relating to the situation
Allowing the density and compressions that is
Gently, gently encouraging relaxation
Tuning into each other—I to the chain, and she to me
Feeling her, feeling me, knowing her, and her knowing my ways
Building Safety and appropriate rhythm
Embracing curiosity and wonder.
And for a moment, it seemed too much,
A breath of panic
Relaxing and softening further
And then, the loosening of the knot began
Like magic, one step led to the next,
And then another
With moments of rest in between
And finally, the big release
A movement that was stuck found its way back on track
Returning to its original state.
This healing process, is much a like.
It's true that a chain is just a chain, and as human beings, our souls are undoubtedly more complex. But the path is the same.
Relaxation around the holding and softening
Embracing simplicity, patience, and compassion
Understanding relationality, attunement and coherance
Prayer and wonder
Restoring a stuck movement to its essence, its original state.
This is the healing process that I know and share with the world.
I invite you to a simple, profound, and elegant healing processes with me.
Like a gold chain, with a sparkling diamond, we too are beings of light with a glowing heart. Each and every one of us can heal and restore movement.
When I read these written words to my daughter, she added, with her ancient wisdom, that both trauma healing and gold are in fact the same, both embody high frequencies and love.
