Experiencing my grandmother’s death has brought me to honor her in a very big way - in honoring her worth to me, and her worth to all those sharing a piece of her story, I must honor my own worth -- and this has brought me new levels of abundance and self-love.
In this episode, I share my grandmother’s story, and mine with her, explore some recent thoughts on death, and how I am integrating the wisdom I am gaining from her life.
I jump into shadow work and how we can use loss to bring us to more wholeness, and we can use our imagination to empower us now. I share three ways in which one can explore death to breathe in life and to know oneself more deeply.
To ignore death is to ignore life. So here’s to embracing it to bring more and to know more of ourselves.
