Your Valueable Life #34
Dear Steve, Dear Sis, #2
Quick updateI had originally published all but the very first Dear Steve letters for paid members only but things are shifting for me and I am in the process of changing what I do here in order to help more people.
I am taking my time to make decisions to ensure they are sustainable and aligned for me and helpful to you.
If you missed it, you can see the first Dear Steve here and read them in order:
Steve was my best friend as well as my brother and losing him is the the most painful experience I have ever gone through in my life.
This is a series of letters to him from me and my imagined replies from him. A way of connecting with him. All the things I want to ask. All the family experiences he’s missed. A sort of story/memoir of our lives together and the grace and grit of grief.
From somewhere in the ether
Any time in space
Dear ))) Sis, (((
I am here and you know I am here and always have been. I know it doesn’t feel the same but you know we will never be parted.
I watch and I listen. I see it all. Your struggles. Your successes.
I have been waiting for you to get around to this. Maybe then you will begin to believe that I am still right here by your side.
Look how far you have come. What you have learned. How strong you have been. How resilient.
You say the world has changed and while I know what you mean, I wonder if it really has or if humanity goes around and around in cycles of its own making? The world from here looks much the same as it ever did.
Of course, I don’t mind you sharing. Express what you must. Be yourself. There’s work to be done that only you can do. Messages that only you can deliver in your own captivating way. But remember to do it for you. Do it to heal, to increase your strength, to be fully expressed.
And I? I will continue to be inspired and humoured by you as I always am.
I told you before, when the death of my body occurred and you were still open to communicating with me, you wouldn’t worry if you knew what it was like here. How free it is.
I know about Ashley. He’s fine really. He’s going to be fine, no matter what happens. You are going to be fine. Even death is fine. We have no control over it anyway so why worry? It comes when it comes…
I think your values of True Self and Expression were always your values to be honest. I just don’t think you were ready to admit it or couldn’t articulate it before. Perhaps you were still trying too much to be what others wanted you to be?
Yes, I hear you in the woods and I know you’re scared of someone hearing you and thinking you’re batty! Hah!
I hear you everywhere. I hear your thoughts. I know your deepest fears. I know your greatest challenges and your greatest gifts.
I know you.
Like you knew me.
))) Stephen (((
Thank you so much for being here. How are you?
Steve mentions about my Values in this letter which I expressed and laid out to him in my first letter.
Values are simply the things that are important to us but they are not necessarily obvious or conscious without doing a little exploration. We can be living our lives completely out of whack with our actual values if we’re not aware of them and this causes stress on our systems.
My Top Values (at the moment, because they can and do change over time) are:
1. Self Expression
Your Values are the foundation from which you can live an authentic life.
Knowing your Values helps you to live a life more in alignment.
Refer to them on a regular basis to check in with yourself.
So go and do this simple exercise HERE now to find out what your Values are then meet me in the comments to share.
If you get stuck, let me know. You can always ask for help. That’s what I’m here for. ;o)
From My True Self to Yours
