Go Within to Go On
In these tumultuous times, many people are facing loss: loss of a loved one, loss of a job, loss of financial security. If you can remember the words “this too shall pass” and “with every end comes a new beginning,” you will calm down. Once calm, you can begin to heal by contemplating choices, which aren’t always obvious. Some ideas come only when we have a relaxed demeanor. I was thinking back this morning to some of the things that I have done to heal my own losses, such as family members dying.
A short time ago, my mother died. It was just that sudden, and even though I’m a medium and could still speak with her, it wasn’t the same. I missed her hugs, her companionship, her eye to eye contact while discussing important topics. In my grief I was forced to look for an answer to start my own healing process. And one morning I woke up with an idea that I felt would work for me. I phoned the foster care system in my state and spoke with one of the coordinators. My words came slowly, as I wasn’t sure how this would be received. I said, “My mother just passed away. And now I’m an orphan. She was my last surviving family member and I feel so alone, and all I can do is wonder how young children deal with abandonment? And I was thinking that I would like to throw a Christmas party in December for 100 of your foster kids. My plan is to get corporate sponsors to donate gifts or money for gifts, and I would get a restaurant to donate the space.” Foster care loved the idea and asked me for a written plan of action. I supplied that, and got everything organized to happen on December 6 of that year.
An amazing process happened. The kids and their sponsors all showed up to a very fancy restaurant that had turned their banquet hall into a children’s playground. Foster care supplied arts and crafts tables and supplies, corporate sponsors supplied the balloons and presents for every kid, and I cooked the food. What was amazing was the amount of laughter and fun in the room which filled my heart with gratitude. It went off without a hitch.
The most amazing part of the day for me was the gift of hope it gave me back. By watching these amazing kids that were mostly “throw away kids,” and seeing how well they’re coping and thriving, I realized that I could move forward to find my new place in everyday life. I still see some of the children today, and thank God that some have been adopted, others are out in the world making a life for themselves now. And I’m here helping all of you.
If I can help you to find your process for moving forward, too, please call me.
