Are you hanging by a thread?

It might be hard. Maybe it’s wrenching. It could be incredibly painful and so it’s difficult to feel lightness. Or to see clearly.

Hanging by a thread can be disorienting.
Listen to me: It’s going to be okay. You’re going to get through this. You can do it.

Baby, you ARE doing it.

You’re getting through this. Right now your cells are plumping up, and your heart is beating, and you have your breath. *In breath. Out breath.*

In breath, out breath. Sun’s going to rise.
We always, ALWAYS get to the other side.

Take encouragement from strangers. Like me. Go ahead. Take it. It’s free and I don’t feel karmically entangled. So, listen to me: It’s going to be okay.

This will not kill you.

YOU ARE BECOMING MORE ALIVE.

Do you believe in angels? If you don’t, just believe in them for the next twenty fours. There are a hundred thousand angels by your side.

Maybe you’re feeling devastatingly alone, like an iceberg drifting. No one can hear you cracking. It’s cold. But, just like an iceberg, you have so much beneath the surface. Years of layers and lifetimes of experience and strengths to call on — skills of expanding consciousness that you didn’t even know you had. You will not sink.

People have been through what you’re going through right now. Thousands of them.

Really and truly. Your picture of heartbreak, your strain of pain is part of the human fabric, and that tapestry is holding you like an Inuit blanket. Other people have survived this and when they got out of that part of the forest, they left a morphogenic popcorn trail out of the pain. You can trace their steps.

It may be hard to believe right now, but not only will it be okay, not only will you get through and over this, you will thrive again. You will be clear, and vibrant, and INCREDIBLE.

You will not only have more character to draw on, and wisdom to offer the world, but you will feel more joy than you think is possible right now. You will.

You may walk with a limp. You may have scars. You may cry at peculiar times, but you’ll be more alive, and more You. You will be more resilient and radiant. And you will feel a curious sensation of being more useful. And it will feel really beautiful.

You are going to get to the other side.
