ABOUT “ME”

AUGUST 2017

IMG_ngjzdi

I’ve been wearing my authentic self for close to six years now.  It feels more comfortable than it did in the beginning of my journey.

I won’t lie, there have been times that I questioned the authenticity of the person I was uncovering.  Unfortunately, this stems from a past filled with self-abuse that had been ingrained for many years.

Doubt.  I too easily allowed myself to jump into that rabbit hole, following others, or worse jumping right in of my own accord.  When I get real clear and listen to the voice of my soul, I am rock steady and there is nothing that can permeate the shell that is “ME.”

As I continue this walk, I am presented with multiple opportunities to practice and with each one I can feel the strength that comes from my center; the truest expression of “ME!”

I know that each step I take is sure and firmly planted.

I honor my truth and I recognize the power of that.

I am focused on what I want to do, and how I want to do it.

Gone are the days I can be talked out of my purpose.

Most importantly, gone are the days “I” doubt who I AM.

I am Lorrie Bowden.  I am full of light and love.  I am living my life on purpose.  I am touching other souls in the process.  I am human and make mistakes.  I am able to forgive myself for said mistakes.  I am strong and resilient.  I am making a difference.  I am love.  And through it all…

I AM BLESSITUDE!

(So blessed and full of gratitude!)

 

And I like hanging out in The Garden of Blessitude!

Hope you find a nice slice of peace here. ❤

Hi.

I am a middle aged woman who taught myself how to love again. I traded illness and depression for authenticity and vibrancy. I learned forgiveness is the key that allows love to blossom and I have never loved myself more than I do in this moment. My opened heart allows unconditional love to flow to every organism on earth; as we are all connected – shall we all be loved.

Life was happening to me. I gave away my true authentic self and I believed that I had no control over my circumstances in life. I turned my back on the voice that speaks from the center of my chest and listened to the voice inside my head. One voice is truth, the other is lie.

I found myself waging battles externally as well as internally. The fighting exacted a toll on my psyche and my body. I allowed an environment where a life threatening disease was able to take hold of my body and I engaged in the biggest battle of my lifetime.

I have walked a thousand miles and I have met incredible people along the way. I have learned that I am responsible for the way my life looks and that I have the power to change what I do not like. I have healed my sick body and my sick life.

I am so blessed and full of gratitude – BLESSITUDE. Walk with me in truth, and may you find your self through love.

Blessitude,

Lorrie

MY JOURNEY
My journey is real
Full of things that are touchable…palpable
My journey started when I couldn’t walk
Didn’t take a step
Yet I moved so effortlessly
So beautifully
My journey was a long time coming
Like an arrow that goes off course
I pierced the sky
Submerged in pillow clouds
I found my soul
I stopped to listen
I felt her heart and I knew her
I went home and it is the most miraculous place
I do not dwell there alone
I am a part of something bigger
And something stronger is inside me
Gone are the days that I used to fight the war
Gone are the days there is a need for a battle
I rest in my secure cocoon
My place of love that permeates eternity
I have learned much on my journey
I recognize the connection that we have to all of life
A link in a chain
Where even the weakest is integral to the whole
A part of something larger
Something to be celebrated
Something to be remembered
Something to be loved
My journey is deserving of my attention
And I know her

  6. What a great attitude Lorrie. How I wish some of my patients could wrap their minds around your statement, “I learned forgiveness is the key that allows love to blossom.” As a nutritional counselor, I’ve found that some hold onto pain because 1. to feel something is better than being forgotten. and 2. for power. They failed to realize that by not forgiving, it is like acid that burns their very soul.

    I’m looking forward to reading more! Thanks for finding me, blessings,.

  14. If you have the need and enjoy putting words on paper you’re a writer. I believe you do; so I’m going to call you a writer. 🙂
    As for my health, I was the victim of a malpractice. Although the writing was on the wall so I don’t know how much of a victim I actually was. I was probably more of a victim of “not trusting myself,” and believing others knew better. I have my health back now; although I have lost my faith, trust and respect for the medical community. It was a hard lesson but a lesson learned.
    I trust from your writings that your health is better now too. I am also happy that we have connected. Lorlinda

  21. So often our journeys start when we become stuck.. The shadows that pull us down are revealed as we begin to step out into our own light.. And learn once again that we are worthy of love… But most of all we heal from within when we learn to love ourselves..
    In 2002 I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, at one stage I could hardly walk up my own stairs, and would use a stick if going a distance, as fatigue and pain set in.. I self healed, using Meditation, Qi Gong, and Affirmations… of self worth.. using Louise Hays You Can Heal your Life book..
    While I still have a top up of Acupuncture every month.. I changed my life in 2002… changed career paths after 6 mths of sick leave.. Once I had made that move and altered my mind set.. I was set upon the course of my own healing..
    The Journey Lorrie is always teaching us along the way… LOVE is the Key to unlocking many a lock we place upon our lives..
    Thank you for sharing part of your journey with us..
    Blessings

    1. Oh Sue! Thank you for sharing. ..and for reminding me of my journey! Tears are streaming down my cheeks…because you made me remember where I came from…I was very sick…There were days I could not get out of bed. I, too, healed with love…and affirmations…forgiveness…among other things. So it feels kind of yucky to feel so yucky!!! And I know there is some resistance in me that allowed me to manifest this infection. ..I will find it..no doubt…and I will raise my vibration back to where I feel good!! I so appreciate you sharing with me. I don’t always talk about healing my illness because not everyone understands…and I would never want people who continue to suffer to think that I devalue their experience. We all come to healing in our time and our own way…and you are so correct…the main ingredient is love! ❤ ❤

      1. I think it’s important to share, when this happens. I tell people that Faith is not a magic wand–even devout, long-time Christians have struggles and desperately need encouragement. It’s a blessing to meet “sisters” (and brothers) who don’t hide the difficult times–who choose to be genuine and authentic, as it really helps/blesses others. And I forgot to mention how much I love your “Blessitudes”–that is really great!!

For reasons not yet understood, I have a great deal of difficulty concentrating, words on a page or thinking and putting things together simultaneously scramble me a bit. It’s been a looooooong journey. With the help of a very caring friend, I was able to post a new post last night/ this morning, that while isn’t a detailed story, does give a good idea of where I went and what had/has happened. I hope you’re well, I’ve never forgotten you. Like a handful of others, in your own individual ways, our connection touched my heart, and your corner of has remained sacred and held onto greatly. I likely won’t be on WP again for some time yet, my post will explain, but I will be again, and that’s not something anyone has guaranteed me, it’s just my tenacity, which along with my faith, hope and laughter, has gotten me to this point, so I KNOW I will. I so genuinely hope you are well (I’m not quite up to being able to read or catch up on posts from anyone yet, it really does scramble me) and that 2018 will be filled with happiness, health, joy and wonderment for you.

    Love & Light My Blesstitude Friend.

  30. I just looked at your old picture and read your old about me section, and I so vividly remember first meeting you – as you “then” (look and feel so to speak). You used to take walks upon the beach with a friend. I’m not certain if you had met this friend there, or if you would go together, but it was something that was very meaningful you at that time. My how things do change … and my again, how time is nothing, but a moment away in either direction. I loved the old you, and I love the new you – my essence honors your essence. ❤
