— Over the landscape of time, there is change.
Change inherently includes loss.
People you love pass on from this life, or move away.
Loss can also be a chapter in your life ending and a new one beginning. Or it can be old ways of being giving way to new ones. When you are missing someone or something, give your heart space and time.
Whatever feeling is present, breathe into it. Let it be felt.
Maybe you cry. Maybe you feel angry. Maybe you laugh in remembrance of a joyful connection.
Whatever is felt in the moment, this is part of the richness of your love.
Grief exists because of love and connection.
Even when there’s pain in a connection, its loss will be a grieving (and an opportunity to heal the pain).
Whatever is present in your heart, breathe into it and let it be felt. Breathe it out as a blessing, because what you’re feeling is part of the richness of heart.
All the flavors of remembrance, loss, anger, sadness - whatever you are feeling - are part of the richness of your heart.
Valeria interviews Megumi Burr-Tolliver — She is a Vortexhealing® Divine Energy Healing Practitioner, Founder Of Compassion Tree Healing, Intentional Community Co-Founder, Writer, Teacher And Speaker.
An important stream in Megumi’s life showed up in early childhood when she learned to only express in the range of “appropriate.” Probably something of her expression had been too out of the box for others’ comfort.
Growing up, she felt everyone was missing what mattered. But she didn’t know what that was, and it wasn’t in the range of what was appropriate to acknowledge.
As a teen, she knew she wanted to “understand others and myself” and “help others and myself.” Her adult path gradually uncovered what that meant, as she developed feeling and knowing from within, and stepped into roles supporting others.
Another important stream came in as her dad, husband and mom passed. Megumi experiences life as inclusive of death, grief and remembering.
Megumi’s unfolding path currently has her co-founding a small, land-based intentional community in Vermont. Her practice, Compassion Tree Healing, supports moms and nurturers who want to find their center and grounding, using highest-level tools from VortexHealing® Divine Energy Healing. She creates nurturing spaces where people anywhere in the world can be with themselves with compassion.
Leading up to this point, she supported pregnancy, postpartum and moms as Compassion Tree Mama Care, including as a massage therapist, birth and postpartum doula, and yoga and movement teacher. She has also co-led workshops and classes.
Megumi’s current and next chapters involve cultivating deep listening and communication with self, others and land.
