A misguided perception that pain would protect her…
that sickness made her off limits
to the ones who would hurt her
try to control her
use her for their purposes
and then leave her like a rag doll
in the back of the closet
alone in the dark
hiding from predators
It became ingrained
it became a way of life
she never understood that
the better option was to
stand in her power
and watch any attempt to defile her
fall to the ground
and roll down the hill
until it struck a seedling
smack in the middle
pain from the center of being
Now she opens the box where her guts lay
and examines the strength of her soul
and she notices an old pattern that lies ready in wait
and decides that she would rather feel
than continue the abuse
A golden white light emanates from her core
the ground starts to shake
and her power
the same power that lay dormant for eons
raises her up to the clouds
in the realm of Angels
and the fear
and the doubt
and most certainly the pain
fall back to earth
and she feels
We can not change things we are not aware of. But once these hidden truths find the light of day, we must take action, or be doomed to repeat the same patterns over and over!
Fear not my friends, the uncomfortable feelings of change far surpass the idea of insanity…

Wow! Beautiful Lorrie! Blessitudes to you! I love this post and you are so right. The uncomfortable feelings of change are necessary and the blessings that come from them are incredible! I hope all is well with you dear friend. xo
Hehe…I had a feeling you were writing to me 😉
I am walking through my life…and honoring ALL that shows up!! Even the dark, icky things…they have a right to be there too…yes?
Hope you are full of light <3
I am…again…back in the light. Are you nearby these days? Care to meet for a walk one day?
Yes! to both 😉
Lovely! How long will you be here?
Same phone #? I will text…
There is pain in change, and pain in staying the same. Do the one that moves you forward.
This is beautiful, Lorrie. I know my body gets sick when there is something I don’t want to deal with. I try to catch it earlier and earlier, as it has to tap on my shoulder and sometimes yank my arm, but the layers come off easier now, just by noticing, honoring and loving.
Peace and love to you.
Thank you for your heartfelt wisdom, my friend and beautiful soul!! I understand more and more how emotional pain can rest in the body and cause physical pain. Just as you stated, sometimes I have to be hit over the head, but I eventually come to and do the necessary work.
I hope that you are well…I think of you often and I always send beautiful white healing light <3
Kudos on your healing journey and changing perceptions Lorrie. Hugs!
Thanks, Brad! It is truly amazing how, to quote Wayne Dyer (I miss him!!) “When we change the way we look at things…the things we look at change!!”
Sending lots of love and light to you, Brad <3
Powerfully poignant and oh so rich!!!!
Thank you, Dennis! I feel myself moving towards my power every single day! I’m not saying I am fully realized…there is more work to do…but it feels really good <3
I think one of the most miraculous powers we have inside is the power to create a new story in our lives that is so full of life and love that it cannot be overshadowed by the old. Peace!
Thank you so much, Dennis. Your words touch my heart and ring such truth. Blessitude <3
I am so pleased you are feeling Empowered.. May you continue to gain strength.. I know it is not easy to haul one’s self up out of the Pit we so often fall into.. And so understand the pain from the open guts.. So so know that.. So my love and thoughts are with you each step of your journey dear Lorrie..
I know now you are only going to reach upwards towards that light and will continue to glow and grow brighter day by day..
Love and Hugs .. Sue <3 <3 💛💛💛💖💖
Thank you, Sue. The photo I chose couldn’t really be more bright and glowey (is that a word?) I think, at the end of the day if I can look at it with eyes of love…and perhaps a little forgiveness for not being perfect…then it is a good day!!
Time is flying and there are so many things out there that don’t feel right, but again, I know that all I can really do is take care of me…and then hope that a whole bunch of other people are doing this work and that we join together and our energy spreads.
Much Love, dearest Sue 💜
Yes, all you can do is take care of YOU, we try our best and when we have given our best, we can do no more.. So take heart.. For we are Many.. 🙂 xxx <3
Much love 💜 Sue!!
Hi Cynthia! Thank you so much for responding with super energy. How are you? I will be over to catch up soon…its really nice to see you!
Beautiful Lorrie and I think we all dread the teachings and the lessons in life. I always love when I get to the other side and feel joy again 💕💚
Yes, Karen!! I have to remember when I am in the trenches that things will get better…MUCH BETTER!! Thanks for commenting and adding your energy here 💜
This is beautiful Lorrie. And very powerful.
I love the imagery and the ‘learning’ revealed as light.
Thank you Louise 😁 That photo is unfiltered…all o did was zoom in so I could crop some power lines out of it. The sky was so bright…and the energy was intense! It seemed a good complement…thanks 💜 Hope you feel such light!
Lorrie! You look amazing!
I saw this https://tinyurl.com/y9fpufyg, and appreciated the information.
This poem is my new favorite of yours. <3
Thank you beautiful soul…for the info and for the nod on my poem! Glad you like it…bet you can feel the power in it!! 😁
I have not heard about Stevie…but WOW!!! How wonderful if there was a natural plant that would fight ALL forms versus the pharmaceuticals I must take that wreak havoc on so many other things!! I will send the link to my doctor and see what he knows about it.
Thank you also for your compliment…I have really changed my “look” to go along with the new felt confidence in my journey!!
I will be over soon to catch up with you…hope that everything is rolling along in beautiful sunlit pastures!! Much love💜💜💜
Fortunately the article was clear about the parameters about what was tested and reported on regarding which forms of stevia. It’s worth investigating and running it through all channels for confirmation of its usefulness or relevance. Power looks really good on you! 😀 I feel your love! <3 <3 <3
The study’s abstract: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4681354/
It touches my soul that you thought of me 💜
Hope the upcoming weekend has a sweet surprise for you!! ☀☀
Ka…I hate pharmaceuticals….I believe that God gave us naturally everything we need so it is encouraging to read your article! My doctor is open…he truly is a “whole” istic healer! I am taking a new drug…and it is a challenge…I just keep walking forward and try to address the emotional things as they come up. Thank you beautiful soul 💜💜💜
So empowered and expressive ❣️ Keep embracing it all Lorrie xo
Thanks, Val! I strive to…each and every day <3 Many blessings your way. I hope that the light radiates around you!
So poignant and relatable! Thanks for sharing.

That was powerful, especially toward the end! I felt the rising up into the realms of angels. Felt lifted! Wow! Thank you! May the blessings continue!
