I found myself standing in front of a store that displayed some beautiful photos of incredibly amazing nature moments captured in time. For some reason I stepped in and began a conversation with the shop owner/photographer about the beautiful waterways of the area I live in. Into my mind came the thought that I should share a story about a letting go ritual I undertook several years ago in the area I lived in at that time. I undertook that ritual because I needed to let go of a painful relationship. I told the shop owner that I didn't often talk about this part of my life's story, but I felt to tell them. This inner wise voice knows who to share certain stories with and for a higher healing purpose that the little 'I' mind knows nothing about. I knew nothing about this beautiful person's past, but I had a strong hunch they would relate to my story. As soon as I mentioned the reasons why I had left this relationship, their eyes filled with tears. I silently gave thanks for the quiet voice of my Spirit that had guided me to share this story with them. They shared deeply about the pain of their childhood and the issues that tore their family apart. I felt truly humbled that they trusted me enough to share this painful part of their life story. As I left I looked back and made a comment about their beautiful Spirit who was on full display. I said that not everyone could see it, but I could see their Heart shining out through the exquisite images. The smile on their face lit up the spark of JOY in my own Heart and I felt like a thousand angels were dancing inside me. We transform our Hearts through the 'Dark Nights of our Soul', even if we don't know it. My gift in that moment was to see how beautiful that person's Heart was and how darkness can lead us back to the Light in unexpected ways. I left feeling so utterly blessed.
