Sharing the music of your soul

As we move forward on your journey of learning, healing and growing, we have the unique opportunity to design our life a step at a time, a day at a time.

The music of our souls is the most perfect sound that exists.  You exist because you are meant to,

Sharing the music of your soul

 because you have much to share, learn and teach.  Sharing who you are can be terrifying.   You may feel as though life has dented you a little.  You were not made to be perfect in every way.  Each day and with each interaction, you have touched another life, another soul.  Feeding your soul enables you to bring your music to others’ lives.

What do you need right at this moment?

I do not refer to anything material or financial, but rather, what does your soul need?

  • Start by examining your emotions as an indicator of where you are.  Next , close your eyes, take a deep breath and shut out all the white noise.  What do you need in this very moment?  Perhaps you are feeling unbalanced, or scared, or lost; maybe you need something as simple as connecting to another.  Take a moment and approach this exercise as if you were helping a dear friend.  With a friend you would allow them time to express their needs and then do what you could to help them fulfill that need.  Do the same for yourself.   You matter.  Your well-being is vital.  It is essential to pause, take time away from things that don’t fill you, and instead give yourself anything that brings healing to you.
  • You might wish to make your voice heard.  Do you want to be part of the change happening? You don’t have to be the person with the loudspeaker or out on the streets actively making difference.  Start with the people closest to you – your family, district or county.  Something as simple as talking to someone from a different area can educate both of you and expand your world.  Using your voice in any way, such as through your blog or social media, and engaging others, makes a difference. 
  • Perhaps you feeling stuck in a rut; feeling as though you live in world you can’t recognize and don’t know how to fit into.  Many people can identify with this.  Start by getting to know who you are at your core – what your fears, your dreams, your heart’s desires and hopes for yourself are.  In so doing, you will find what you are seeking. Discovering yourself takes one single action each day. No matter how small, do something for you.  You will begin to feel empowered and excited about life.
  • Maybe you have experienced trauma.  This leaves a deep mark and changes one.  Be patient with yourself, forgive yourself for your perceived mistakes, allow yourself time to heal. Most importantly, give yourself what you need to heal – not what is suggested to be right for you, but what you truly feel you need.  Going though hardships and dark experiences teaches us, as nothing else does, who we are at our core.  These experiences show us how strong and capable we really are.   People need OUR music most.

You are a beautiful and special soul with your unique music.  Don’t ever forget it!

What does your soul need today?

Be Well, Be Blessed

This debut memoir chronicles a woman’s spiritual exploration and growth as she overcame a disturbing childhood and helped others heal.

Brought to America from the Dominican Republic as a youngster, Molina-Marshall should have led a happy life. Her father was a diligent worker, and his large family wanted for nothing. But the author recounts that her dad had a drinking problem and was a serial philanderer. Molina-Marshall’s long-suffering mother left him for a woman. Then it was all downhill for the bright, 12-year-old girl, who was shuttled between foster care and relatives. According to the author, she was sexually abused by the husband of one of her siblings. This resulted in Molina-Marshall becoming alienated and moody. By 15, she simply tried to survive. In her favor were grit and a restless intelligence. She quit school, rented a room, and found a factory job. Time went by, and for a while she was happily married. Yet when her husband left her, her life truly began. She turned to religion for answers but decided that blaming God for her woes was a cop-out. 

In this absorbing and moving memoir, Molina-Marshall’s vivid storytelling is fearless. She frankly discusses the truths she discovered and the indignities she suffered. These admissions are disclosed with a touch of resignation and plenty of bite. However painful, everything she experienced was a lesson, and she bravely realized that she was part of the problem: “The fear of being hurt, rejected, or abused often led to me feeling lonely and misunderstood. No one knew the agonizing pain I felt being trapped in my thoughts and anger. I was becoming my biggest threat.” 

The author skillfully recounts her intricate spiritual journey. To deal with her psychic wounds, she searched for an inspirational system. Her open-mindedness led her to the interfaith concept—cherry-picking from various religions and spiritual movements, yoga, and Indigenous beliefs as a way of finding peace. Along with her female partner, she built a therapy practice, making use of every spiritual element that aided her and others. The road was bumpy, and she found that women of color in same-sex relationships were not welcomed everywhere. To do good works—and finally live on her own terms—she effectively overcame bigotry.

An engrossing, cathartic account of empathy and success through determination and confidence.
