You don’t plan to be healed, it just happens. We might hope but we never know when the penny will drop or the karmic lesson is going to release. Trust, synchronicity and intuition – all ingredients in this healing.
I recently had the incredible unplanned delight in sitting in a workshop with the talented and generous spirited beautiful Alexandra Franzen – writer extraordinaire.
My attendance was unplanned but due to some synchronistic occurrences, I was able to attend. Voila I sat there being mesmerized, whilst my heart was opened by genuine resolve to communicate from a heart space that is more than “the me or you” but incorporates the “we”.
I was there and I was ready to learn.
Write Yourself Into Motion
I was ready to write myself into motion, but had no idea how? But I didn’t expect that I would heal a longstanding karmic agreement. The wounded healer.
During the workshop, Alexandra demonstrated generosity and heart felt kindness with a poetry and prowess that transcended her years. There was a warmth and energy around Alexandra that felt healing. But that wasn’t it. It was the final hurrah that did it.
We did a lot of writing and Alexandra helped with editing. When Alexandra edited, it was like she was seeing your soul and putting your soul into words.
When it came to writing my bio, I got a little stuck. This did not flow as easily as it could have. I asked for help.
Cathartic Release and Healing
I sat there patiently (not really, quite childlike – ready for something great). Boy, when Alexandra had finished, I cried, no I sobbed. It was such a release. I had been witnessed and thus my wounded healer was healed. It was a private, cathartic moment, which I will cherish.
I know that this was a once in a lifetime opportunity to work with someone who is unbelievably talented, epically appreciative of soul speak and enticingly honest, with abundant humility.
Not only do I feel honoured by her words but humbled by the release. Being witnessed, being heard and being seen is the way forward for all us wounded healers. Today, I know I am healer and am open to source as a channel. My role as a healer is in my blood and in my cells. I totally trust and know that I am in the right place.
Thank You, Alexandra
Thank you, Alexandra – you have been what I have been waiting for. I am here and I am ready to heal.
Have you ever felt like a wounded healer? Have done so much inner work that you are still not sure what it should feel like. I would love to support you in the process of healing the healer within.
Beautiful Maria! Yes, being witnessed is very previous. The witnesser allows us to be who we are, and in that moment accept ourselves. Well done. Love deb
Your bio is beautiful and I think I need some Alexandra in my life! Thank you for sharing her and sharing YOU! XOXO
thank you susie xx
as a huge fan of alexandra's work, i am thrilled that you received this opportunity, maria. and i'm even happier that you used it to dive deeply and challenge yourself to accept the forthcoming wisdom and transformation.
Oh I just loved Alexandra and the workshop. It was a wonderful experience xx
That sounds like such a wonderful experience. It goes to show that everyone needs support. One of the greatest assets in being able to help others is through making sure we are taking care of ourselves as well. Sometimes the most beautiful experiences are the ones we don't plan for!
Mmmmm – it was beautiful experience xx
Being witnessed, being heard and being seen…so happy for you Maria. I believe we all possess healing powers in our genes, some just never tap into or recognize. Thank you for your vulnerability and sharing your journey with us.
Hi Dana – thank you so much – it feels good to have processed through to the other side. xx
"Healer, heal thyself." was one of the first principles of naturopathic medicine I was taught as a student of natural health (a principle straight from Hippocrates, father of medicine). So, we spent almost as much time examining our pasts and issues and inner lives as we did on physiology and nutrition. At the time, I naively thought, "Great, that party's looked after." Ha!
It's an on-going process. How lovely to witness a piece of your process here. Thank you for sharing. Because the other thing that became clear to me through my studies: when we own and heal a piece in ourselves, it opens the way for others to do the same.
Oh it feels so sweet too Cathy – it is a journey and it is so insightful 🙂
I'm so glad you had this experience, Maria. There's nothing quite like being seen and heard and held. I'm sure that's how YOUR client feel when they are wrapped in your healing energy. Brava! Thanks for sharing.
That is so lovely of you Sue Ann – thank you 🙂
This is the most beautiful post. I so resonate with your words…"having done so much inner work that I'm still not sure what it should feel like".
What a fortuitous happening for you to be suddenly available for this workshop and to actually meet Alexandra in person! and have her support to create your new bio! Lucky you:) xo
Oh thank you Susan – I feel very lucky too 🙂
