Step 12. Remembering your True Source

Dear Reader, when life gets overwhelming, it is easy to forget that we are never alone.

Whatever belief system you might subscribe to, the common element is that we always have a measure of support outside of ourselves.

This is something we can so easily fail to acknowledge since we find ourselves focused on whatever is eating at us.

Acknowledging this support allows us to step back, re-evaluate how we feel and the way we are going to react in the moment.

It allows us to recognize that what happens next is not all on us, but we have the security of our ever present Support System.

Step 12. Remembering your True Source:12. true source meditation

We are not the Source – we are never alone, even when we don’t have each other, we have SPIRIT; GOD-DESS.

When it appear to all fail, we have faith in each other and for each other, through our connection to all that is – knowing that essentially all is well.

When you have a challenging time returning to your sacred self, remember that you are not alone;  that you can turn to your faith – let things rest and come back to the discussion when at least one, if not both of  you, are wanting to honor your Sacred Relationship.

Stay in generosity.

  • What do you do to stay in faith, dear Reader?
  • What do you need in your life right now to help remind you to come from your most sacred self?
  • How often do you recognize Source in you life?

RUNNING THROUGH DARKNESS
MEMOIR OF A SPIRITUAL WARRIOR

BY SANTA MOLINA-MARSHALL ‧ RELEASE DATE: MAY 3, 2022

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.
