HONOUR – One Word Can Change Your Life
The Word “HONOUR” had a profound affect on me in 2015 as I consciously choose to start using the word “Honour” and its lovely derivatives “honouring” and ‘’honoured” throughout the year and found myself awed by the deep sense of honouring that developed, grew and permeated throughout my life and especially in my connections, collaborations, and co-creations throughout the year.
I feel so “honoured” to have had this video shared with me on FB at 222am and having the opportunity to witness the friends, families and kindered souls in New Zealand “honour” their brother, father, and son.
The “honouring” ceremony (from the video below) touched my spirit, sang to my soul and triggered a message about “brotherhood” , about “team” , and about “humanity” that turned on the inner sprinklers of my being and left me feel so honoured to be alive, to be human and to feel so grateful.
The “critical moment” of seeing the young ones with their mother triggered the sense of loss, of sadness and of despair that accelerated the tear flow and reminded me that “ each tear is simply a beautiful gift, it is the human creation of a rain drop into the ocean of healing.
Choosing to honour the experience, breathing in deeply, feeling the feelings, exploring the emotions, was very emotional. It felt like a truest true of living .
Grateful for the experience and having an inner certainty, a knowingness , that this too will serve allowed me to shift from tears of sadness, sorrow and pain to calmness, peace and harmony. My dance with the external environment has brought me to slumber and hopefully a magical rest and journey to lands yet explored.
Thank you and may this honouring serve you and your beloveds on your journey into 2016.
