1888's Take: We all possess a great and powerful capacity for healing that is held deep within in the seat of our hearts. And, whether our scars have been passed down from our ancestral wounds, our childhood, the loss of a loved one or perhaps the end of a romantic love, we all have the emotional and spiritual tools to heal ourselves. We simply need to take the time to sit and be with our pain. Understandably, most people will avoid this at any cost...but as the buddha teaches us...sitting with our pain until it becomes something else is the only way. Its called transmutation and it is the changing of one form of energy to another through our spiritual work. There is no greater gift you can give to the collective consciousness of this planet than the transmutation of pain to kindness, forgiveness, acceptance or any other higher vibrational energy. But it takes work. You have to choose it, and although that may seem daunting at times to face what you fear, the outcome will be the gorgeous release of self imposed shackles. You will free yourself a little more with every past pain your change. Heal...Sit...Change...Release...Repeat.

My Mother used to say that if you came across a feather lying in your path, it’s a sign that you are headed in the right direction, your true path, and you should pick it up and keep it as a talisman of luck for your journey. The Navajo Indians used hawk and eagle feathers to make their “Headdress of feathers”. Only warriors who had displayed extraordinary bravery were allowed to wear it
