Looking around you, can you honestly say you know anyone who hasn’t been struggling mentally or emotionally since the pandemic began? Whether we want admit it or not – the changes in the world over the past two years have been staggering.. and everyone has changed inside somewhat. Whether you are (or have been) avoiding the pain, denying your own self care (sometimes without even knowing it), fearful, anxious or uncertain, this energy can be felt by everyone all over the world. It has not been pleasant, but, in darkness there is opportunity for new choices, growth, strength and resilience. Many of us have reconnected with our inner guidance system – you know.. the soft little voice of truth that has always been there that you may have lost or forgotten about many many times; A lot of us have shunned our feelings our whole lives, only to have them arise to be experienced and felt; Some of us have made major new life decisions and changed, and are now on a path of self realization that would not have happened had this pandemic shift not occurred. In our culture though, these monumental movements toward realizing who you truly are are not widely discussed.. so many people are focused on going back to “normal” although many now are seeing that that just is not possible (or ideal). The shift is REAL.
We have both shifted massively in many ways since the pandemic began, and we have (along with most of you) have experienced grief, fear, anger, loss and more while working to become the best versions of ourselves possible. We want to start talking about these things more, and challenge the conversations that are sometimes too difficult to have, but also so necessary.
Join us for this short episode about where WAGS of SCI is headed this fall and winter. We have events and discussions coming up that will support and empower you to become the best version of yourself possible, while showing you that you are NOT alone wherever you are at.
“In order to know the light, we must first experience darkness.” – Carl Jung
