"Bringing my artwork out of that dark dirty basement and displaying it on the clean, white walls created a shift inside of me. My work suddenly gained incredible value. And in some way—because my work was beautiful and valuable, I was as well."
C. Fausett - The Course of Wisdom

What is your work, that could be brought from the dark and shown as truly valuable?

Bring the seeds of your work, knowledge and hopes and plant them where they can attain sunshine, and grow. 
This photo is of my newly planted garden. I struggle each year to keep plants alive, to learn how to grow - in more ways than one. 
Step into the sunshine. It's time.

Ariel’s ginger patches shimmer under sunlight, though it’s hard to capture in a photo, or even a video. Most of her fur is also ticked, meaning that it’s a different color closer to her body than at the ends (most of her roots are cream-colored, even the dark hairs). What’s something you love(d) about your cat’s coat?

Within your body, there are seven basic energy centers or chakras. Chakra is an Indian (Sanskrit) word literally meaning "wheel." You feel your best self when all your chakras are communicating and working together, interdependent, in order to keep you healthy. If there is any kind of blockage or interruption, any or all of your chakras can be affected. Keeping your chakras in balance is the key to your emotional, physical, and spiritual health. Reiki helps to balance the overall energy in each chakra and throughout your body.⠀

Last week Parker just completed his last band concert as a middle schooler. It is so awesome to see how far he has come with playing the clarinet. So many times he wanted to quit, but he kept going. I am excited to see how he does with marching band next year. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Did any of your kids play an instrument?

Yesterday my patient smelled of cigarettes. He walked into my office and I noticed it immediately. It was a strong, awful stench. He’s trying to quit, but is struggling. I had no judgment, but my nose did. As I spoke to him, exploring his inner most thoughts, I noticed myself drifting and feeling nostalgic with the smell. You used to reek of cigarette smoke. I say this now, lovingly.

Jan 2018, during the last trip I saw you, I picked you up from the airport. I was newly pregnant and in my first trimester. It was a Thursday night, you were in your favorite leather jacket; the one I kept, it’s hanging in my closet. You got into my car and like the bratty big sister I said, “Ew Code you stink! I don’t want you smoking near me, it’s awful.” The pregnancy nose was making it worse than usual. I couldn’t tolerate the smell.

I’m sorry for that moment. I’m sorry for that exchange. I’m so sorry for shaming you and your struggles with nicotine, with addiction. What I should have said was, “Cody you made it! I’m so happy to see you! I love you so much and I’m glad you’re here to spend time with me.” That’s what I should have said. That’s what I wish I said.

Please hear my apologies and know that I would give anything to smell those cigarettes on your leather jacket as you enter into my car. I would do anything to crinkle my nose at the stench of tabacco and nicotine. I would do anything to be grossed out by that goddamn cigarette stench, if it meant having you back.

Sometimes pain is prescribed so the new you can be birthed. Don’t hide from it. There’s nothing more beautiful than FULLY BECOMING all that you were meant to be. 🦋🌸🌺

My program on Healing Grief is now live on @sanity.and.self 🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼
.
.
Often times we are healing from grief and don’t even know it. Grief comes from change and we can feel it when we change jobs, grow apart from friends and even alongside positive events like having children, growing our business or moving into a new home. .
.
My approach is to help you connect with deeper parts of yourself so that you can become stronger in your experience of change.
.
.
The more we grow, the more drama there will be. This will help you master the inner game so that you can then conquer the outer game. .
.
Check it out in your APP store. There is a 7 day free trial!

The Grief Recovery Method is the reason I went from darkness to light and pain to purpose. I became a certified specialist 6 months after doing the work on myself because I knew Guam needed this. Bobbie Taitano Michelle San Nicolas Sasamoto and Bernice Arceo McGill all had the same vision. Together we continue to share our stories and give grief a voice. My vision of growing beyond Guam and expanding in our region is finally coming to past. We are honored to have Amanda Lambros, The Grief Recovery Institute Executive Director of Australia here this week to help us certify 15 more specialists from Guam and Saipan. This is only the beginning! We are on a mission to expand our reach so we can help the largest amount of grievers in the shortest amount of time. Grief Recovery is our specialty. #makinghistory #GivingGriefAVoice #healinghearts #guam #saipan #griefrecovery #paintopurpose

Friday introduction time! Some of you recently stumbled on my blog from 4 years ago and have questions. 🙃
.
Hey! We are the Burris’s. 👋🏻
.
We have been together for almost 10 years, after meeting one another on Twitter and getting married just 47 days after first tweet.
.
Don’t ask us advice about getting married fast. Pray for my parents. They are still in recovery from shock. 🤣
.
We have 5 kids and number 6 is on the way later this year!
.
But a few years ago we weren’t sure if we would stay married or be sitting here together at all.
.
On this Friday Introduction, we would like to share with you a hot marriage tip: TALK OPENLY ABOUT EVERYTHING. It saves a lot of heartache and actually builds a lot of trust.
.
Here, we touch on one of the boundaries we set in place after a season of unfaithfulness. For more, see my highlight or check out our blog. Leslieburris.com/archives
.
Nothing is impossible. Your marriage can totally heal and be fully restored to something bigger and better than it was before.
.
You’re looking at living proof. ❤️
.
You are loved. You are seen. And you are NOT alone. Which is why we share. Couples often isolate in a season where they need community and church the most.

Memorial Day

You always seemed to appear
Whenever I was holding the baby,
Or working in the kitchen.
And I would immediately know
That it was you,
Because something, "colorful,"
You'd have said,
Would suddenly appear inside my mind...
Larger than life itself,
You had all those favorite expressions
That I remembered so well. 
And then the movie reel of memories 
Would soon follow.
Flashing images of you,
When you were still alive.
And whenever this happened
I would just smile,
Then feel that faint familiar chill
Of just "knowing,"
Run the length of my body.
This was something I had learned
To live with,
When speaking with the dead.
It involved a higher sense of perception
And a willingness to believe.
And on the good days,
I would never question or doubt
My sense of intuition.
Instead, I would just laugh,
And talk back to you,
And know 
That what I was feeling was real.
But on the bad days,
And there were many...
It felt like I must surely be
Losing my mind.
And the anger and regrets
Would come quickly,
Followed by shaking
And a whole mess of tears.
And this never got
Any easier.
This was how it felt,
To lose someone that you loved,
Way too soon.
This was the cost 
Of never being able to let go.

What if you just decided never to be afraid of what others think?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Honestly… what does it matter?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
There’s never anything you can do to control what others think of you anyway.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What’s the point in trying?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Lots of people have opinions about your grief…⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Let them.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Some will tell you that you are strong and amazing…⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Others will judge your every move.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So what?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It’s ok if they are wrong.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Do your life and your grief YOUR way.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It’s the only way that matters.

"Laugh and the whole world laughs with you, cry and you cry alone."⠀
😢⠀
This brings us to the 3rd myth of grief, that it's better to grieve alone.⠀
⠀
⠀
Our grief calls out to be seen, it wants to be acknowledged, it needs to be honoured.⠀
⠀
Feeling grief after loss is a natural part of being alive, just like being born, growing, moving, laughing or hoping. It’s a reminder of how much love and connection you felt. No need for apologies or putting up a brave front to put others at ease, instead give it space to breathe and be recognized as only then can the healing begin.⠀
⠀
Don’t hide your grief away like a shameful secret. Reach out to a trusted friend, coach, or therapist. Letting your loved ones see your vulnerability strengthens the trust between you, and can even encourage others to share their own vulnerable moments instead of struggling alone. ⠀
⠀
We all need emotional understanding when we're grieving, so be sure to check in on those who you thought you best just 'give them some space/time' or that they 'need to be alone' to process their grief.⠀
⠀
Remember, all you have to do is be a heart with ears.⠀

"Laugh and the whole world laughs with you, cry and you cry alone."⠀ 😢⠀ This brings us to the 3rd myth of grief, that it's better to grieve alone.⠀ ⠀ ⠀ Our grief calls out to be seen, it wants to be acknowledged, it needs to be honoured.⠀ ⠀ Feeling grief after loss is a natural part of being alive, just like being born, growing, moving, laughing or hoping. It’s a reminder of how much love and connection you felt. No need for apologies or putting up a brave front to put others at ease, instead give it space to breathe and be recognized as only then can the healing begin.⠀ ⠀ Don’t hide your grief away like a shameful secret. Reach out to a trusted friend, coach, or therapist. Letting your loved ones see your vulnerability strengthens the trust between you, and can even encourage others to share their own vulnerable moments instead of struggling alone. ⠀ ⠀ We all need emotional understanding when we're grieving, so be sure to check in on those who you thought you best just 'give them some space/time' or that they 'need to be alone' to process their grief.⠀ ⠀ Remember, all you have to do is be a heart with ears.⠀ 👂🏻❤️👂🏻⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #grief #griefrecovery #healing #emotions #neveralone #reachout #askforsupport #tearsarehealing #deathcoaching #lifecoaching #dodeathdifferently⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀

I find it weird sometimes calling myself a widow. But that's what I am. On the 1st of June 2017 my whole world fell apart. My fiance, Chris, was tragically killed in a single vehicle car accident. I have struggled with life ever since. I have not much left of him due to circumstances beyond my control I only have his Medicare card left and this jacket. We had 3 boys together and 9 crazy years. I thought we had forever. Turned out he at least got to spend the rest of his life with me. I miss him every single day and wish he was here to hold me and tell me everything is going to be okay he had that ability. I know that he is my past and moving on to my future but he lives on in my heart and his boys. We will never forget and I'll always remember what we had. Yesterday, today and tomorrow love you

Another magical moment in Bali.
This temple was in the middle of a bamboo forest, there was not one other visitor there when I went, just the sounds of the forest, one of 6 temples that is believed to protect the island from evil spirits. 
This picture shows a small mosque at the peak of this temple. 
When I climbed to the top I sat outside the gates and just felt the presence of all of the souls that had sat there before me. As I looked at the offerings all around I wondered; what were people praying for, what kind of things were people going through, what kind of emotions have been felt over thousands of years in this very spot. 
I felt an intense magic in that moment and searched in my backpack to find something to use as an offering to pray myself. 
I found coins and put them through the bars of the gate, almost instantly there were hundreds of dragonflies swarming around me. 
The way the sun came through the trees, the silence, the dragonflies, and that feeling of presence was overwhelming and emotional. 
Another powerful moment in a far away land, but more than the location I realize that it was being truly present that allowed me to find these moments. 
I think we can find magic in everything if we’re willing to look and listen, we don’t need to travel the world to see it, it’s in our backyards in our loved ones eyes, their laugh, it’s in those moments when we allow ourselves to really feel. 
Seek them out, be present in your life, in those moments, they are what really matter in the end my friends. ❌⭕️ #worthywidow #lovefearlesslylivefully #selfworthbuildsresilience

There are several ways to communicate support to those going through this difficult experience without sounding insensitive. Here are six things you should NOT say to a grieving person.

When you're a baby you have your first tooth, first word and first footsteps. All of these are moments of joy. As you grow older you expect to have your first house, your first (and hopefully only) marriage and your first child. The problem is when you lose your mum when your 27 and she was 57, those first moments turn into something else. Instead you gain 'the first without.' Mothers Day, Birthday, Christmas, New Year, Her Birthday and the list goes on. It was painful for me to acknowledge Mothers Day as my mum passed 4 days beforehand. The last conversation we had was about her gift. There should be a medal for getting through 'The Year of Firsts' because it's a nightmare. Everytime one of these occasions was coming up I acted like a BRAT and usually drank a copious amount of wine! But that's okay because it was a difficult time. How do you celebrate your birthday when a massive piece of your life is missing?! What many people dont realise is that once the mourning period is over and you go back to daily life, the universe keeps throwing these days at you where it almost feels like you've lost them all over again. People will forget and try to force you into celebrations that you're just not interested in; be honest with them, you've got to look out for yourself. You are what matters the most in this situation. Yeah they might get a bit annoyed with you, but fuck 'em! People that genuinely care for you will understand and those are the people you want in your life.

Do you know what keeps me going on my health journey? The way I feel. Working out has helped me in so many ways. Why would I want to go back? I wasn't in a good place. I was unhealthy, physically and emotionally. 🌻
I have more energy now. I'm happier. I feel so much better. I like feeling stronger. And, I'll tell you the more I left weights, the more I love it. I just want to keep coming back for more. 🏋️‍♀️
I'm also encouraged by others to keep going. I'm surrounded by amazing women that continue to push me and make me want to do better. 👭 In addition, I watch my older son 🏋️‍♂️ and see him and his progress and he motivates me. I also want my younger kids to see the importance of making their health a priority. And, I hope they start their own journeys before long. 😊
I'm looking for some amazing women to come be a part of this with me. I know you're out there. I know it's what you're looking for. I've got a 3 week group starting June 3 with the chance to win a prize. You've just got to reach out to me so that we can chat. Drop that emoji below⬇️.
Have a great night!🌠

Helvi Frances Johima. 1931-2019. Mom left us just barely over one month ago (April 17th) and I think of her (of course) and miss her every single day. #ThrowBackThursday is for this beautiful musician, Mom, full of dreams and talent ... and a dream to go to music school ... the story that was told is that her father said instead she would go to secretarial school, so from age 16 to age 64 she was the best secretary anybody could ask for, working for both government and the private sector. I always wondered how my life, her life, may have been different had she gone to music school. #LiveYourDreams . On a positive note though, this accomplished musician kept playing ... and I was blessed to grow up with her piano and accordion music flowing throughout the house for hours on end. #TBT #Mom #RIP #creativity #accordionist #pianist #accompanist #musician (P.S. Years ago when I knew Mom wasn’t well, all I wanted was this photo of her) #gratitude #grateful #griefrecovery #thunderbay #portarthur #fortwilliam #vancouver #ontario

Grief is unique for every individual. Even if you have had a similar loss in your own life, you really have no idea how someone is really feeling. It would be better to say, “I can relate to your loss,” instead of “I know how you feel.”⠀

 #tbt to almost exactly two years ago, when I first became involved with @catnapsociety. This was my first encounter with a feral kitten, and I have to say, he flipped pretty quickly! And I was so happy to be around kittens, six months after Hedda’s death. Volunteering with a shelter or rescue is a great way to heal from a resident cat’s death, for many reasons, including that most rescue volunteers understand grief over an animal friend. .
.
Rescues need all kinds of skill sets, from accounting and tax prep, to event planning, fundraising, transporting cats and kittens to the vet... Fostering is awesome, but if that’s not possible for you, there are countless other options. Have you volunteered with a rescue? If so, what was/is your favorite thing about it?

Today was my last Grief Counseling Session at @GildasClubKC. ⁣
⁣
My time here in my hometown of Kansas City, has solely been to deal with the loss of my mother and get my mind right to face the rest of my life without her physically here. ⁣
⁣
I’ve learned so much about myself throughout this time of soul searching and seeking. Everything that I’ve ever believed has been tested and I’ve dug deep to grow. ⁣
⁣
That’s the beautiful thing about this life, about nature about the way things work… you have to dig deep to plant a seed, you have to plant it somewhere where it can grow and live purposeful and you have to have patience to allow it to naturally take it’s time to grow into it’s full potential. ⁣
⁣
I’m thankful for the strength and courage to dig deep and be patient with myself. There’s a lot of growing pains, but I’m just taking things day by day, slowly but surely blooming into the woman I was born to be. ⁣
⁣
I am so happy I decided to get out of my comfort zone and seek professional help. ⁣
⁣
My counselor was a God-Send over these past couple of months and really helped me navigate through more than I was expecting. ⁣
⁣
I am truly thankful for the legacy that #GildaRadner & #GeneWilder (who passed away the same exact day as my mother) have left behind to help people who have been effected by cancer in various ways. ⁣
⁣
Their grief counseling program was exactly what I needed to transition into a new chapter in my life. ⁣
⁣
This is not a sponsored post nor an ad, but I want to share that there are Gilda’s Clubs all over the country and if you are a caretaker, a cancer survivor, fighting cancer or have lost a loved one to cancer, I’d like to encourage you to see if there’s one in your area. They have so many amazing programs, community activities and support groups. And if you’re looking for an organization to donate to, they are the real deal! ⁣ ⁣ ⁣

We Are With You Weaving -So this little weaving I made for a dear friend going through surgery has made quite an impact on me and even though I sent it several months ago it has continued to be on my mind. I had added the beads as a visual image of those that cared about her story and a reminder that she wasn’t alone. While I wove and as I added each bead I realized it ended up being the amount of people left behind in my immediate family after my father died in January. The visual impact this had on me of realizing all these people were with me... attached by different cords to the same story was so moving to me. I am starting a line of weavings for those of you who are enduring something that requires more than you feel you can endure on your own and for the loved ones that want to give a visual reminder to those they love that they are standing with them. These weavings will be in my made to order section of my shop. Flowers are precious to receive when times are hard but how sweet to send a reminder that can physically stay with that person. Double tap❤️ If you think this could be a beautiful way to show someone you care.

I’m unsure what I believe about the afterlife. Does it exist? Is it a paradise up in the clouds with a man named God who rules us all? I highly doubt it. But I do tend to think, and maybe hopefully believe, that there is something beyond our time in these human bodies.

I met a woman last weekend in a training I was leading. She described herself as a spirit medium. I sat and spoke with her in a casual and impromptu fashion. Who am I to say that it’s not all true? I find my curiosity is peaked with all of this. The tales and myths and theories of an afterlife, of the spirit world, of the next step. Recognizing that we don’t really know, and won’t know until we are there. If there is a there.

One thing the medium said to me was that our language is irrelevant; call them spirits, ghosts, energies, angels. She feels it’s all the same and it’s a waste to get caught up in semantics. She said that if you listen, if you pay attention, if you tune in, you can see them, feel them, and hear them. They’ll flicker lights and send you signs, playing with the energies that we are more familiar with.

Could it be true? Could it be you that lights up my son’s toys when no one is near them. Could it be you who blows the wind to send me messages, just exactly when I need them? Could it be you who gently nudges me to look at words and numbers that seem all too relevant for coincidence? Could it be you who, in the middle of the night, flashes rainbow lights outside of my car window when there’s no light in sight? Am I looking for a self fulfilling prophecy, or could it be you.

We couldn’t have said it any better! It’s hard seeing someone we love grieving and in pain. Know you don’t have to “fix it,” just sit with them and love them.

This life is full of chapters ... one chapter does not tell the whole story, nor is it meant to.
.
Some of us are blessed to experience more chapters than others, but we all have a story to tell no matter how short or long.
.
Even though we connect with others along the journey, our story is always our own. We are all on our own journey writing our own story as it unfolds.
.
People will come and go and if they go, then I truly believe that the time we had them as part of our story is exactly the perfect amount of time they were supposed to be there.
.
When we are ready, the next chapter will unfold exactly how it is meant to as the story must go on 🙌🙏♥️.

How many of you have said it will be good when”this happens” I’ve been guilty too!! The thing is, time goes by and if we are waiting for achievements or stuff or events to make us happy we are missing all the best parts! Keep planning for your future, your goals, your experiences and feel excited about them; but remember that isn’t what brings happiness. We were mostly taught to work hard, then you find success and then your happy. When in reality it’s mixed up, if your HAPPY, you FIND SUCCESS and that’s what makes you WORK HARD! Success is personal, only YOU can define what that looks like. Happiness is a choice, whether you want to believe it or not. So choose happiness, find your success and then you will work your ass off because your fuel will be passion. Doesn’t get much better right?? ❌⭕️ #lovefearlesslylivefully #worthywidow #selfworthbuildsresilience

This myth of grief builds on yesterday's of 'don't feel bad' because we think that getting something new will erase the feelings of loss from the old.⠀
⠀
'Don't worry, we'll get a new dog!'⠀
⠀
'The best way to get over someone is to get under someone else!'⠀
😉⠀
⠀
⠀
But replacing the person, place, pet, or thing doesn't complete the loss you're feeling. You're grieving, you're sad, and those are completely normal and natural responses to loss of any kind. We're taught how to acquire things in life, not what to do when we lose them. So, we'll often try to just 'get a new one' because that's how our society works...right?! Out with the old and in with the new!!⠀
⠀
⠀
Again, this is a myth of grief because it doesn't work. Have you ever tried to replace a loss in your life before you were ready to? How did it feel? Are similar patterns repeating in current relationships because of pain endured in previous ones? This may be because of unresolved grief in your life. If you'd like to learn more, check out my latest blog post called 'Action is the antidote'....link in bio!⠀

Some of the incredible #art pieces at @apexsocialclub at the @palms from the Spring Fling Vegas Healthcare mixer last Thursday! These “bodies” were made up of thousands of little trinkets that would probably take days to discover them all. If you look closely at some of the pictures, you can see the distinct pieces! Such story telling, awe, and #creativity!!! So cool. My mind and heart lit up in excitement!

Energy! Life! Soul! We discover and talk and give our children and ourselves many explanations on the topic of energy. What is our energy? Our vibe? Our soul? How are we teaching our children to respect and interact with the energies they come across? Are we building curiosity and encouraging confidence or casting shadows and fear? #wheredidnanago #whiteowlpress #griefrecovery #energyiseverything #wednesdaywisdom #vibeforlife #kidvibes #raisethemright #booksforkids #booksofinsta #writersmusings #bookexcerpt #watercolormagic #showthemlove

Another sneak behind the scenes: Eyes of wonder! There are books to be filled (in my opinion)and songs to be sung on the importance of keeping your eyes, heart and mind free to experience Wonder.
