Birthdays are important. Not everyone thinks so, and not everyone understands those of us who do. I want you to know that I get it, and I’m here to honor you.
Your birthday season can hold the full gamut of emotion. It’s a time of contemplation, a time to review what’s happened in the past year and perhaps the entire life so far. It’s a time to notice how you’ve changed, and to really see who you are now. It’s a time to set intentions for the coming year.
I believe there’s something very powerful in being witnessed at this threshold. Unfortunately, our friends and family don’t always know how to hold space for our feelings and needs, so birthdays can feel deeply disappointing. Very often, the only thing we want for our birthday is to just be, and to be seen. Or maybe we want something meaningful, in addition to the party.
I invite you to join me for a birthday ritual, to honor who you are.
We’ll connect up to a month beforehand so I can offer some suggestions for your preparation. When we meet, I’ll create a sacred container for your ritual. I’ll hold loving, supportive space for your truth as it is, whatever it is, in this moment. With lovingness and compassion, and in alignment with the highest good, I’ll witness you as you stand in your truth, offering your heart’s song to the Universe. I’ll provide energy medicine (as in an individual healing session) to help you release what’s no longer useful, offer healing where it’s needed, and clear the way for what’s being birthed in you.
You are welcome to invite one or two people to join us and witness you in this powerful place, for some or all of the ritual.
