Swallowing the Day-After Pill! #healing #recoveringfromgrief #spiritualadvice #recovery

When pain slaps across the face, unexpectedly, sometimes you remain more stunned than hurt. But a day or two after, you look at yourself in the mirror and notice an aching bruise that wasn’t there before. How do you deal with that metaphoric grief?

I’ve had a busy week on set, rehearsing, and taking workshops and classes, so I never really had time to digest the death of a close friend. As a result, I’m a little sullen today. I woke up with a knot in my stomach and bit of an anxiety hangover, for lack of a better word. I’m busy again today, so I want to take some quiet time this morning to grieve, sit with my sorrow, and create a plan for closure. You might be wondering what all of this might look like, because you, too, wish you could release from some kind of pain or grief and move forward into the light of love and peace.

For me, quiet time always looks much the same. I separate myself like the Master Teacher Jesus did in the desert and simply be quiet, which is often harder than you could imagine. We keep ourselves busy and occupied, primarily, so we don’t face our pain. But, sometimes, letting go of our psychological drama is as simple as feeling the chair you sit on, surrounding yourself with your favorite blanket, or listening to some beautiful music. The key is certainly the quietness. In the silence, there is a secret place, a secret meeting place—Spirit is the there!

If sorrow has made its home in your heart, then you may want to simply let that grief rise to the surface to be healed. This is like removing a bandage after the bleeding stops, so that the air can hit your wound and oxidize it to scab. Even though a scab is never pretty, it is the next step to healing. Honor the healing process and, especially, protect the scab from anymore harm.

The Japanese have a wonderful tradition. When something breaks, they fix it and paint the crack in the surface with gold. I’ve been thinking about what this tradition might look like with our own hearts. Paint your scab gold. Honor the cracks in your mind and in your heart! Paint them your favorite color. And love them, until they become a vessel of honor.

Finally, the plan to bring closure to your grief, might be printing a picture of your loved one (if it’s a death), writing something special on the picture, and placing it appropriately where you can slowly let your grief turn into wonder, joy, and peace. For me, I have begun to think of my friend who has passed as being an angel in a place where no more pain exists. To add to my wonder, I imagine that now she is in that spiritual place, perhaps, where she can touch my life as she couldn’t being in the physical, human realm. She is always with me in my heart.

Namaste!

Take a look at my book, Uncommon Gay Spiritual Warriors. The book provides physical, spiritual, and mental alternatives to those who have been ostracized and disenfranchised from religion. Also, know that I provide a specific, personalized service, creating meditation MP3 for individuals in need. I do this for a mere $25. The process is simple. You email me what you would like to understand, have clarity about, or tell me you just want to quiet your mind. I take it from there and create a twenty-minute Mp3 that you can download on to your computer or cell phone and listen to daily to clear your mind and reprogram the part that creates negativity in your mind. It’s that simple! My email: bosebastian5@gmail.com

What About the Children? #inspiration #spiritualadvice #artsinschool

In the heart of the poorest part of Fort Lauderdale, ArtServe25 is a museum for Stonewall, gay and lesbian art, and the voices of every individual who wants to make his or her presence known—your sexual orientation doesn’t matter. ArtServe, as well as being a museum, also sponsors many open-mike events for kids to express their music, poems, and rap.

As I sat waiting to sing my song at an open mike night for any adult or child, two young African American men, about fifteen years old, stood up and introduced themselves as rap artists. I held my breath, because, generally, I think rap is a little repulsive. The thumping, annoying beat, combined with the, usually, vulgar repartee, makes me want to crawl in a hole and plug my ears. However, sitting in the front row, I had no other choice but to listen. And listen, I did.

What I heard astounded and astonished me. Though the teens were off pitch and had to start over a few times, the words they spoke touched my heart deeply. They talked of living in a world where the expectation of them was to be in a gang and use drugs and have sex at a young age. They shared their story about finding alternatives to that lifestyle in the arts and rising above the harsh poverty and abuse they lived as children. A few times, I was moved to tears. I’m actually going back this evening to hear an entire evening of just teens called The Voice Box. Free admission. If you’re in the Fort Lauderdale area, it starts at seven this evening (March 27).

The expression of the arts through children is more important than we know. These beautiful kids are in recording artist programs and music schools that allow them to express daily IF they keep a C average in school and never use degrading language about women, express in ways that uplift and inspire, and respect each other.

These rules, however, don’t mean that they have to inhibit the voice of pain in their rap. What I saw, in retrospect, is that this art of music and rap has evolved their young minds in a way where each of them can have an individual voice. I believe that in the culture in which they matured, gang and pack mentality is what had been driving them to protect each other from other gangs and more abuse. But, this arts program has given them a new pack, a new group of amazing friends and family who support their right to make powerful change in their community and in their schools.

When they entered the building with their two teachers, I could see, immediately, that each child needed each other to stay the course, not acquiescing to the animal instincts that drive the adults and older teenagers living that same harsh street and gang life.

In general, if you are not fighting for arts programs in your local schools, you need to be. The difference in death and life is in the hands of our lawmakers who often take away the precious gift of music, fine arts, and literature and give their support to moneymaking sports programs, which also need to be nurtured.

The Hardest Call—Navigating Death #inspiration #lifepurpose #spiritualadvice

A dear friend of mine passed early this morning so unexpectedly, so early—at fifty, at the height of her talent, her beautiful singing and acting talent. I had the pleasure of working with her often enough to know her heart and her inner voice. My soul aches at the loss of her humanness. But, Even though we may be grieving, consider this: The passing of a human soul can be to our benefit, especially when we have a soul connection to that person as she was in a human body. Now she is in spirit, acting as Spirit, completely and totally.

No soul dies—ever. It goes on—to where? we certainly don’t know. But, I am sure, the soul continues on a spiritual journey far beyond my imagination. My hope is that these souls will continue learning, and, perhaps, they may even come back to help the soul clusters that they were living with as humans. I have always felt the divine presence of some of my closest friends who have passed. I know I’ve spoken of it before. You can look up my blog: “Linda Has Passed, Now What?” to find out my views about this.

But, what I want to touch on today is the prayer I was led to in my morning meditation. First, I felt my friend’s presence all around me, as I began to speak. Remember, if she is one in God, and I am one in God, then we are One!

So, I shared this truth with her spirit, and maybe with my own as I began, “We are one today, more One than I had ever imagined, so soon, and so quickly. But, I’m thankful for your transition to perfection, because I know that Spirit does everything perfectly and in perfect timing. So, I’m knowing that you and I, and all the people you have touched are ONE right now, rejoicing in the life we shared together on earth and collectively, with the angels, readying you for your journey onward and forward. I release you to the law of life, knowing that your soul will always be with me. Be happy, be free, be completely and totally LOVE! And so it is!”
