All with love.
This week’s poem/shared writing is by Bryonie Wise. I chose this piece because I appreciate the tender clarity in her words as I think about what it means to keep an open heart in dark times. I’ve taken one of Bryonie’s online workshops and one of her yoga classes in Toronto. She’s a bright and embodied human who illuminates shadows while reminding us of what’s good. Bryonie’s Instagram feed is also lovely if you want some sweet visuals to rest your eyes on.
What contracts do you need to break to heal your heart?
I hereby break all contracts I made unconsciously and consciously before I knew the depth of my own Spirit; the silent ones, the ones I inherited, passed down and accepted as my own from generation to generation.
I hereby sever all ties with that which holds me down and back, unable to see the glimmer of what I know to be true, whether by my own creation or by expectations tied like weights around my ankles by others lost in the sea of their own confused hearts.
I hereby reclaim my right to choose how my story unfolds, armed with creativity, a heart made of gold and reverent humility.
I hereby fully accept all of this living and what-is-yet-to-come with brash integrity and loving determination.
I hereby swear to use my superpowers for the love of all beings and I return anything that no longer serves my Higher and Lower Self (and any of the ones Caught-in-Between) with gratitude and consciousness.
I do this all with love, from the great source of it found in my very own beating heart. I declare myself alive.
