As a young Social Worker I worked for a program for survivors of Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault. While facilitating a group for survivors of abuse I proposed the idea that we are all exactly where we are supposed to be. Some members of the group nodded and acknowledged that their experiences had been an important part of their growth and assisted them in developing positive qualities.
A few years ago a friend of mine completed suicide. She was one of the kindest people that I have ever known. She spent her entire life caring about other people, being aware of other people's needs and emotions, and always being there for someone when they needed it.
This week on Kindred Spirits I will share my story about the goddess Luna. Luna came into my life at a time when I needed to better understand my personal power as a woman. She helped me over come childhood conditioning that taught me that my options were limited because of my gender.
