She waits

She waits for you

the girl you knew

the one with the fire in her heart

and a spring in her step

Too sad to think we lose the way to this

the most natural


abundant essence

of our inner self

Trying to please

and losing connection

suffering as youngsters the pain of hurt

the sting of rejection

of all that made us who we are

But still this essence of ourself

it is alight

somewhere deep inside

So this I think is most essential

that we recognize the healing potential

of tuning in

of looking back

of feeling the sting

that rings with a truth

too important to deny

So do not lie


or turn away

for if you do

the loss of connection

will continue to haunt you

for the rest of your life

if you do not take it seriously

For all of you life

she is waiting

for the adult you

to reclaim your power

To set that beloved precious one

"The religious naturalist is provisioned with tales of natural emergence that are, to my mind, far more magical than traditional miracles. Emergence is inherent in everything that is alive, allowing our yearning for supernatural miracles to be subsumed by our joy in the countless miracles that surround us." Ursula Goodenough How to describe oneself? People are a mystery and there is so much more to us than just our particular experiences or occupations. I could write down a list of attributes and they still might not paint a complete picture pf Deborah Louise and in any case it would not be the full truth of me. I would say that my purpose here on Wordpress is to express some of my random experiences, thoughts and feelings, to share about my particular journey and explore some subjects dear to my heart, such as emotional recovery, healing and astrology while posting up some of the prose/poems which are an outgrowth of my labours with life, love and relationships. If anything I write touches you I would be so pleased to hear for the purpose of reaching out and expressung ourselves is hopefully to connect with each other and find where our souls meet.

  1. This is so poignant and beautifully written, Deborah. I can really relate to your words so much. Only recently have I begun to see myself as the adult who needs to protect and encourage my inner child after all these years. (I’m still on the waiting list for a new therapist. I’m hoping she can help me continue my journey into self-discovery and healing, although I’m wary that I don’t want to be suffocated about all my childhood traumas again.) Thank you for your reply to me on my ‘The Home’ post; I intend to reply to your kind words tomorrow. I have been so busy today, and can hardly keep my eyes open right now, so I will go to bed and start again, refreshed, in the morning. I hope you are well, my friend. Xx 😴🌷💞

      1. Oh, Deborah, I’m so terribly sorry you have been so ill. How awful for you. What has been happening? There is really no need to apologise for your late reply – I still haven’t replied to your comment on my ‘The Home’ post. I really don’t know where the time goes anymore. I don’t seem to stop these days. Thank you for your advice to be the mother to my own inner child. I do hope you are beginning to feel a little better now and that your progress into better health is rapid. Much love to you, my friend. Xx 💓🌹💞

      2. Oh, Deborah, I’m so, so sorry you’re in hospital and trying to cope with the drugs they are forcing on you. That’s just awful. I’m so sorry you are so very unwell. If I could come and get you, I’d wrap you up in a soft blanket and take you home with me until you felt better. I do hope you will be feeling better soon and back to your old self. I send you love, light, healing and blessings, my friend. Xxxx 💙💐💓💐💜

      3. Oh, that’s awful, Deborah. I can imagine what you are going through as I have been hospitalised against my will in the past. It was a long time ago, but I’ve never forgotten it. Hospital, especially, mental health ones, are such disempowering places and, as you say, unhealthy and unhelpful places to be. Do you have any idea how long you will be there for? I do hope it won’t be for too long. Sending you my love and gentle hugs. Xxx 💐💓💞


      4. Oh, I’m so sorry you’re having an appallingly tough time there, Deborah. I’ve been thinking about you every day. I wish there was a way of getting you out of there. Do you know why you’re on a general rather than a psychiatric ward, although I don’t know which is more difficult? I can feel your pain and despair, and it sounds like you are going through hell, and I know it feels that way for you right now. Do you have any idea how long you’ll be in hospital for? Are you under a section? I’ve been sectioned in the past, and although I know it was for my own sake and safety, I hated it. I found it very disempowering. Please try to hold onto some hope, my friend, although that’s easier said than done, I know. You won’t be there forever, but I know you will only be able to look at the present at the moment, so perhaps, it’s a silly thing for me to say. Can you remind me what country you are in? I’ve got a feeling it’s Australia, but I could be entirely wrong, and if so, I apologise. I am hear for you, my friend, at any time you need to chat. I will always reply as soon as I possibly can. So much love to you and healing, comforting, and loving hugs for you. Xxx 💓💐💓


      5. No they decided against that. Since they listened to me and know I was emotionally abused. They are running tests and since I cant walk easily it might take some time to get home im so sorry you had that experience darling. It must have been awful.

      6. I can understand that from my own experiences, Deborah. Try to take one day at a time. I wish I could pluck you from there and take you somewhere quiet and peaceful. Much love to you, my friend. Xxx 💙💞💜
