This will just be brief as I have to go to an appointment soon but I wanted to get this down as lately I have been crying so deeply and sharing with my therapist yesterday, after reading a blog I wrote yesterday but did not post to her she said to me.
Deborah, I think these tears you are crying are actually tears of becoming, they are the soul’s expression of grief for your lost self, sadness from the real self that never got to fully birth but is birthing now.
WOW! It made so much sense for me, yesterday the post I wrote and will post today was about the missed opportunities and how disappointed I am in myself but in the session we spoke of how the second accident coming at a pivotal time when I was trying to emerge at the end of my marriage echoed the earlier one that happened when I was on the brink of opening to my being and sexuality and self. It was a full scale onslaught that tore my flesh apart and ruptured me, taking me into hospital, an enclosed womb attached by pins to a pully and bed for three months. I carry the deep echo imprint of that.
Katina said to me. I want to say this, please take care now as you are on the brink of emerging again and the traumatic imprint could be retriggered. It scares me but birth is also a kind of death a death of the old self we have to shed like a skin that has grown too tight for us. Shedding it leaves us open, raw, vulnerable and naked for a time very exposed, shedding so many tears. Tears of becoming.
