Lancing boils and knitting scarves
Bore da from a misty Welsh coast.
I used to have a friend who mocked how the British reacted to the weather. It’s misty today and that makes me feel mellow and thoughtful. If it’s a windy day – speak to a teacher and they will tell you when it’s windy they know the children – at any Key Stage – may be noisier and bonkers!
Thinking of how much an external factor like the weather can affect us, imagine how susceptible we are to our interior world – our memories, decisions, acts and omissions, slights, failures and triumphs – all neatly stacked away, ready to highjack us at any time.
To help to prevent the highjack a Life Review can sort through the life laundry putting some stories into the compost heap and others into perspective! Lance the emotional boils and tame the monsters (apologies for the former image).
I don’t know if any of you are knitters? A Life Review is like knitting a scarf, checking the facts of your life without commentary or judgement, row upon row, helping you identify a disconnection and bringing the realisation that you may have dropped a stitch.
The knitter then traces back to where the stitch was dropped, hooks the stitch on the tip of a knitting needle and weaves it back carefully through each row to bring it back to where it should be, looking at the affect it has on each row as it is repaired.
A Life Review can show you where you dropped a stitch and can help you thoughtfully restore it to its rightful place and something inside you will be healed.
