Love’s Angelic Wings

Butterfly

Love and its spectrum of beauty. True love is not what they have painted it to be. It triggers with pain yet shines with glory that uplifts you into the embrace of its angelic wings.

Have you wondered what love is?

I have come to know that most people don’t know what love is.  They see what might look promising on the outside in terms of common interest and shared experiences while never getting deep inside to what is truly important.

Love is deeper than what you do together.  It is a way of being, a way of relating, and a way to mutual growth.  A passive friend who is difficult to connect with saw the outside images and believed it to be love yet she never opened up her eyes to see the deeper love brewing in front of her eyes.  I can’t help but wonder how many people go through life just by acting out the motions of living instead of truly being engaged with every moment.  What I saw in her was a sense of innocent beauty coupled with ice cold denial.  She grabbed onto the pictures of pretend perfection and turned her cheeks away from the embrace of true love.  It played the melody into the highest glory yet she did not hear.  She tightly grabbed onto what she knew.  I shed her tears and it turned into snow.  I secretly hoped that one day she will wake up to the true sunshine of love – the love that is filled with intimacy, uncertainty, wonder, confusion, tenderness, understanding, healing, forgiveness, non-judgment, acceptance, joy, freedom, beauty, fear, courage, momentary attachment, sparks of inspiration; love that makes you be on the edge, inspires you to give yourself completely, pushes you through your own boundaries, and shines with endless glory…

Today I am fulfilled.  How lucky am I to experience the depth of true love and its full spectrum of beauty.  How warm, turbulent yet romantic this past year has danced within us.  How blessed I truly am to be immersed within the love right in front of my eyes.  My heart sings to all the colors of his beauty.  He shall have my undying gratitude and I shall say to him “yes, it is MAGIC!”

The Pain in Healing

Life can be a sharp needle, cutting into our wounds but healing us in the process.

Life can be a sharp needle, cutting into our wounds but healing us in the process.

As a child, I hated the taste of medicine. The herbal remedies always left a bitter taste in my mouth from the start. It didn’t matter if I knew the healing power behind the bitter taste, I still felt resentful toward it as well as my mother – who gave me that medicine.

This morning as Dr. Revivo adjusted my spine back in place, I felt the sharp pain “he caused”. For a split second, it didn’t matter I knew that he just healed me, I still felt the bitterness in my mouth as I struggled to thank him.

As I walked out of the office of Cardiff Family Chiropractic, I couldn’t help but laugh at how I felt moments earlier. With my neck relaxed, with my strides effortless, and with my body relieved, I knew that I am now feeling much better. So why did I resent the healing? Why did I resent my healer? And why was I so resistant to the process? Perhaps we have always learned that pain is bad and heavier emotions are negative. Perhaps sometimes we are not looking beyond the point of “initial injuries”. Perhaps we have not made the connection that the process of healing can be uncomfortable initially yet this process can offer us the ultimate healing and freedom.

So today, I made a promise to myself – to look beyond the pain and appreciate the healing. This means to thank the sandpaper to my soul, because he really is the sunshine to my soul. I appreciate the gifts you bring into my life (and you know who you are).
