So I'm listening to #OWN 's super soul conversations and this lady she's interviewing says "The soul is covered by 1000 veils" and I'm just stunned because she says "veils" are the things that cover up your true self. They send you farther and farther away from who you are. And veils could be anything; from childhood struggles, to adulting pains and aches, the dead parents, the absentee dads, the hurtful or sometimes just unhelpful comments from our loved ones, expectations, the lies we've been told, lost love, the miscarriage, the betrayal etc.
And I choose to call them aches,,, within these veils that cover our souls are aches and pains some of which we may never admit to anyone. But healing is available for us! That's the good news. And the first step to healing and wholeness is the naming of our aches and pains.... Then we get on the journey to scraping off ALL the veils till we are the truest, version of ourselves.
We are love. We are joy. It's somewhere under the veils. Let's find ourselves, shall we?
