Clowning Around

Last June I attended a holistic and spiritual healing group run by a dear friend of mine.

Last night I had the pleasure of attending another session. Unfortunately for me, my nervous system was on “red” alert all evening, making it very difficult to sit still or stay focused at times and I found myself getting quite emotional as one by one, the lovely group of women in attendance shared their stories. My emotions grew deeper with each share and by the time it got to my turn I could barely get the words out. 

Like in June, we each started off the evening by picking two random cards from a deck of spiritual cards. One card with a word written on it, the other, a picture. We were to use the combination of the two cards together as part of our share, giving our own interpretation as to how they connect to our journey. I had a really hard time doing this the last time (see blog; My word had been “disgrace” and my picture was that of some silly faced clown. This time around I picked the word “slave” which I easily interpreted as me feeling as though I have been a slave to my disease for the past 8 plus years but if you can believe it, somehow, in that big, shuffled up deck of cards, I blindly chose the exact same picture card again. What are the odds of this actually happening? It’s gotta mean something, right?? I mean, what could this silly faced clown really be trying to tell me??

We ended the evening with a beautiful guided drum meditation and spiritual circle. It was both impactful and empowering.
