PATIENCE MONTH: DAY 9: “When your intentions are pure, the right things will happen for the right reasons, at precisely the right time. Get ready, be aware, but be patient.”― Charles F Glassman

I love to tell people I work with that whatever issues they are addressing, be ready to heal. When we set the intention to heal, the Universe is going to line up across the board and kick us into a new realm. We are going to get 1000 new ways to face what we are working  through.

It is always interesting when we are working through Ego to see what comes. If we are aware that fear or anger are issues to be addressed, we may be given 1000 opportunities to face them. In new and creative ways, Universe is happy to provide it all.

This never fails. I know not everyone is going to see it, but each step gives us new things to address. It may take 20 or 30 years to work through anger at a cellular level. Okay. It has been there for 20 or 30 years anyway. We will always be working through these things. There is no magic wand that we wave that eliminates the issues we bring into recovery with us.

We get to see progress through the steps, never an ending. Healing goes on until we are done breathing. And it takes less time and less work every year, as I see it, but goes much deeper. Yay! And Boo! At the same time.

When I am ready to hit a bottom with something, there is so much evidence given to me that I am done, that it is hard for me, the ultimate hide-from-your-feelings woman, to deny it any longer. Okay…no escape…let’s dig in.

And when I do, hold on tight! The Universe is going to kick some Kelly booty with an outpouring of more and more evidence. Yikes, but thank you enormously. Healing is really what I want anyway.

I am a therapist and counselor with long-term recovery from addictions and personal trauma. My writing reflects these experiences and the road I have traveled in 12-Step recovery settings, along with the work I have done for over 30 years in the field. My love of dolphins includes the stories of them being healers in places all over the world. I long to offer every broken spirit and body the experience of a healing hug. May my words and stories inform, uplift and delight your spirit and soothe your weary heart.
