Graciella speaks. I channel her words, wisdom, and sentiment. -Theresa
Lament: Graciella reminds us that tears are a gift that we may use to release our deepest sorrows. By allowing ourselves to feel our most profound feelings of sadness and releasing them, we then give space for newness in our lives.
There are many individuals who are in deep pain and grief during these times. Loss of work, homes, and basic necessities have us wondering what comes next. We may be experiencing the pain of the loss of someone we’ve had deep love for or we may be experiencing the bewilderment of the loss of life as we knew it before this pandemic.
Allow yourself to feel. Allow yourself to be. Speak with someone about your innermost troubles. Pray out loud to the heavens for what you may need. The image shows the woman in deep lament. The owl of knowing and the snake of transformation sit by her, ready to give her the aide she needs. The barrenness of the tree is contrasted by the fullness of the moon. The beautiful flowers show that there is growth in pain.
Graciella asks that you allow yourself to be held.
In light and love,
Graciella and Theresa
