"The worst that could happen is terrifying, yet the freedom to choose can be paralyzing in its own way... We live lives bound in tides of anxiety that flux and flow, yet despair is not inevitable..." goo.gl/sG8jsK

Rising Through Forgiveness
Learning to forgive ourselves while learning life's lessons takes some time. Radical, near instant change is usually trauma induced, as well as trauma inducing. "Slow but steady" gives us time to process, adjust and fully incorporate with understanding, the values of these lessons. Often we find that there will be people reminding us of our past actions and mis-takes. Focusing on our life lessons, as opposed to the judgements of others, assists us in remembering that they are learning also. Aiding us to rise above it, and through forgivness both of self as well as others we open the door to self love. Life requires growth and we are all learning through our own journeys of awareness and self discovery.

Self-pity is easily the most destructive of the nonpharmaceutical narcotics; it is addictive, gives momentary pleasure and separates the victim from reality.

There is a tremendous Power in meditation, rituals and spiritual practices; - I just don’t label them that way! For example; the word “Spirituality“ itself could be easily replaceable with “Harmony”. In fact, I love the word Harmony better, because it tells you a lot more about it!

Spirituality is basically a natural and simple way of being and living in a well balanced Harmony. Being in harmony with yourself, with the World around you, and knowing who you really are, that’s what spirituality is. We are in Harmony when we discover our true self, and not what we “think” we are...

Well put! Often they are the times we look back on in gratitude, because we realize their value, but may not recognize it until we work through it, and come out victorious.

It is with great pleasure that I announce the publication of my second book: Hear Me Sing Book I (Edery, R. 2016) https://goo.gl/B4gvsZ

My work with victims of great suffering have brought me to a new level of spiritual transformation, which I invite you to experience.  In my new book, Hear Me Sing Book I, I completely embody my identity as a spiritual healer and I become a psalmist.  My songs are of transforming the pain of unrequited love. My poems celebrate the heart that continues to be grateful for love after rejection, for love abiding in spite of the trauma of abandonment, a love that prevails through being forsaken, that survives the obliterating cruelty of solitude.  I show my reader how we are never alone, as whimsical healing partners emerge in the form of Rivka's various crones, goddesses, trolls and monsters in a landscape glittering with wonders.  Hear Me Sing Book I is a passionate recording of a beautiful heart that never stops singing and loving.  The pain of this poet is not that of a victim asking for mercy, but the seizing of archetypal adventure and relishing a full, joyful emotional life.

Now available in both paperback and Kindle edition!  https://goo.gl/B4gvsZ

I look forward to receiving your comments and feedback!  Happy Reading!

Warmly,
Rivka Edery, M.S.W., L.C.S.W.
