Recently I was meditating and I came across a word I haven’t heard of before. After a little bit of research, I discovered the meaning, and I love it.
In Japanese “Kintsugi” literally means “golden joinery” and it is a method of mending pottery or broken vases, instead of just throwing them away. They are beautifully repaired with golden thread, making every “Kintsugi” piece unique.
So how can this apply to our lives?
I think most of us, at some time or another, have a feeling that something has broken us. For many people this is maybe a bad relationship or bereavement. Sometimes we just feel lost.
But, by changing the way we think about ourselves, by realising that we are all beautiful and flawed and resilient, by looking back at the difficult times we have been through and knowing that we do come out stronger than before, we can remind ourselves that like a broken vase held together by gold, we are not “Broken.”
We are simply going through a change. Changes happen to get us to a better place. Every one of us on our own journey and I have emerged from my struggles like a butterfly. You can too. I am here to help you understand and here to guide you. So, if you’re feeling broken, call me and I’ll help you put yourself back together.
Love and Light,
