It is a ‘funny’ story about coincidences! After our Mandala session on a Thursday morning where we received a SYMBOL OF TRANSFORMATION that I personally found rather confusing at first, in the afternoon, I participated on a workshop run by a lovely American facilitator.
As we were contemplating on different matters, I once gain saw the sword similar to the one I drew that very morning as part of my TRANDFORMATIONAL SYMBOL. I was very surprised. I also saw a lady holding that sword with some kind of a halo around her head. She looked like an angel except that she was dressed like a warrior.

I officially hate the word ‘vulnerable’. The original meaning of the word means that you lack the defences you may need to protect yourself from harm. Rene talks about an aspect of vulnerability that makes us capable of connecting with another person. This kind of vulnerability is not a weakness but a strength. It is a personal power that makes us feel strong and still be in touch with our humanity.
And you know how I feel about vulnerability. I hate vulnerability. And so I thought, this is my chance to beat it back with my measuring stick. I’m going in, I’m going to figure this stuff out, I’m going to spend a year, I’m going to totally deconstruct shame, I’m going to understand how vulnerability works, and I’m going to outsmart it. So I was ready, and I was really excited. As you know, it’s not going to turn out well.
Because, by the time you’re a social worker for 10 years, what you realize is that connection is why we’re here. It’s what gives purpose and meaning to our lives. This is what it’s all about. It doesn’t matter whether you talk to people who work in social justice, mental health and abuse and neglect, what we know is that connection, the ability to feel connected, is — neurobiologically that’s how we’re wired — it’s why we’re here.
Betty Edwards wrote a fantastic book that helps people learn to draw with ease. She believes that by switching off our left brain functions we can start seeing in a way that helps our hands to draw what we actually see.

“The Volunteers” Legends of the 21st century Humans. The video is about our ‘helpers’. Those souls who come as volunteers to Earth to support humans to evolve. I love this video!
