Lost Little Girl
LOST LITTLE GIRL
Lost little girl
No one to comfort you
Filling the time with things to do
Lost little girl
You will be ok
Just make it through another day
Lost little girl
Finding her own way
Through song and dance and art and play
Lost little girl I hear you now
Rest your head against my brow
For you were never on your own
Through all your wanderings you have grown
Lost little girl feel my embrace
Life is a journey not a race
The time is now to just be
Instead of searching for eternity
For that was then and this is now
Together, we will figure it out somehow

Many of us have grown up in a world where there is a split between mind- body- heart and spirit. We often experience this as an inner conflict and internal separation, as disconnection and fragmentation. We add to this fragmentation by repressing/ hiding/ avoiding/ denying parts of ourself that we are not comfortable with or that society deems as inappropriate (which is more often the reason why we are not comfortable with these parts in the first place!). This leaves the inner word in a state of constant tension and internal pressure which builds and builds until it finds the point of least resistance to come exploding out into the outer world either in the form of physical, emotional, psychological or spiritual distress.
As a young, rebellious teenager, I was so in my body which meant that I was often in a state of overwhelm without any tools to manage or make sense of what I was experiencing. What I did not know at the time was that I was also carrying all these unexpressed emotions and words, not just my own but of my family and ancestors, all the wounds of my forefathers that had been passed down to me through my blood and bones, through my genes in my physical body but also through the particular patterns of relating and responding to the world.
As excruciating as it was to be in my body, my body was also my primary vehicle of experiencing joy and ecstatic, blissful states. It was the site for the expression of painful and often overwhelming emotional states but it was also my saviour and salvation. I can see so clearly now how my body saved my life. LISTENING TO MY BODY is what saved me. Following the signs and signals, even when it is beyond all logic and reason is the key. Where once this was an unconscious and intuitive process, the journey that has since unfolded has given me a bag of tools, but none more essential and vital as the gift of MY BODY and the reverence that comes from being guided by my very own and unique Master/ Guru/ Sacred Guide.
I feel this split from the body so deeply in myself and in others, and hear the call to come back home to the body. Are you listening to your body? What message does it have for you today? Have you been listening or is it starting to get louder and louder in your inner world? Has it reached a point where the message is now being sent across the mind- body barrier to manifest as dis-ease? That tension in your neck/ back- are you listening to what it has to say?
Well then it's about time to act on it.
Be with your body.
Take some time to listen.
Act on the wisdom of your sacred guide….
