Lessons from my Jade Egg. #1

My Jade Egg has a voice, and she has taught me many life changing lessons.  

She and I have been working together for 5 years.  During that time we've traversed some tricky life challenges.  I've moved country, separated, received therapy for domestic abuse, I've teetered on the edge of bankruptcy, stared repossession in the eye, watched my son dance on the brink of death, navigated a thousand twists and turns in my career and I've lost any sense of illusion that I've got this life sussed. I really haven't.  But my, oh my, oh my, the lessons from my Jade Egg have made the journey indisputably honest, authentic, soulful and courageous.

She and I have kept a diary.  It's intensely personal and revealing and joyful and at times dark.  I thought it might be a good thing to share, because;

1. I've learnt that when we share our journey, our sisters hear their journey, and this can be very healing,

2. I honestly believe that a Jade Egg is every woman's friend and I'd like the whole world to discover this joy for themselves.

I can write this now because I survived.  I've been to the gates of  hell and here I am, still smiling.  Dare I say it... I'm even starting to forgive.  When everything was stripped back and taken away, I was still here.  When the narrative around me and within me told me my life was in ashes, I was still here.  When my worst fear unfolded before me and I touched that place of giving up, I was still here.  I discovered for myself that this body, this pelvis and the extraordinary innate human ability to rebuild and heal and LOVE is untouchable.  

We are strong.  We are invincible.  We are love.  My Jade Egg and I know that now.  I can't wait to tell you more.
