Hope Amid Tragedy

http://bobjamesjazzfest.org/clinic2012/assessment

Last weekend, I met Bob James, the two time Grammy winner Jazz musician and composer from Marshall, Missouri.  The link I am posting on my blog (up there ^) has a Youtube video called, Jazz in Japan.  Scroll down to the bottom of the page and the video is on the right lower corner.  It lasts about 30 minutes and is a very touching story documenting Bob James’ visit to Japan to participate in the Iwate Jazz Festival to encourage the tsunami victims.  You will be encouraged by the experiences of the people who tell about how this festival helped them to find hope in their lives after such tragedy and the beautiful power of music in Bob James’ gift of song and deep respect for the Japanese people.


My Welcome and Love Letter to YOU!

Hello and welcome from Goldenhealer! I am Shari and I invite you here.  I  invite you to come with me into my garden and sit by the water in the cool morning breeze and watch the birds play their mating games.  We will have tea together and relax for a spell.  Breathe in the fragrance of the honeysuckle, take in the beauty around you.  I want to know what is in your heart at this moment? Take a deep breath and give your thoughts to the earth and be supported in this place, this safe and healing place.

Is your heart aching?  Do you feel weary? May I sit beside you? If I told you that you are in the perfect place for you right now, would you look at me with an incredulous stare? What if I say that you are stronger than you know? Stronger than you ever dreamed possible.

There are many things in which I do not feel I am capable, or up to the task, but I keep risking anyway.  Even in creating this blog to share with you, I wonder, am I creative enough?  However, I  know that any time you put your foot forward for the growth, development, and self-expression of your own life, especially, ON YOUR OWN TERMS, then the forces rise up to meet you.  This is to support you by lifting your dreams into working mode.  The secret is that your determination to fulfill your life purpose has to be stronger, has to be more powerful.  Or you just stay safely where you are now.  Nice and comfortable.  Tempting, isn’t it?  But we all know we are not really happy there for long.

I am here to tell you that climbing the mountain ahead is a thrill.  Pushing forward to find out what you are truely capable of is the challenge of a lifetime.  For me.  For you.  And I am here to serve your unfolding, and my own.

I have a dream that somewhere inside me is an artist, is a writer, is a creative soul that is aching to get out and be seen.  Be witnessed.  It must be a really big dream because I am fighting a tiger to move in this direction.  You know about those tigers, don’t you?  We all do.

Won’t you join me in my journey?  I invite you to open the door to your heart and soul and let that dream come forward.  Are you listening to that voice telling you that it is impossible?  That you are too old, too busy, too committed to other important things, people are depending on you, the kids need you, your mother, father, sister, husband, wife, partner needs you, you already are up to your eyeballs in projects that lay unfinished, you have started many things and have not been able to complete them, you don’t have the money, you just want too much, this is silly thinking, you lack the formal education, why are you always starting things? can you never be satisfied with what you have? your computer is already bogged down with so many emails and you are adding another?  And how do I know this?  Well, this stuff goes on in my head all the time.

Let us be strong together.  And fight that tiger.  And break through together.

I hope you join me in my fledgeling blog. The journey of Golden Healer is very much about inviting your own Golden Healer Within to come forward.  As you follow the progression of my posts, you will learn about activating your own Golden Healer – she who knows how to bring peace into every day even when your heart is dragging.

I have a free gift if you will join, that will be coming soon, my most encouraging e-book, 10 Great Ways to Win Every Day When Your Heart is Dragging and You Need to Get Moving! 

Have a healing day.
