Be gentle with that tender heart of yours.
It may be holding a years worth of grief inside it.
Be caring with all those parts of you that feel life’s tender moments, childhood pains and unmet emotions.
Take yourself out into the gathering light and breathe a bright ember into the very centre of you, into your hearts red soft middle, holding yourself in love and warmth.
Wake your heart slowly, allowing it all to be felt, allowing yourself to create space in which to rest and to breathe.
Let the coming light light up your bones and remind you of the gold that is held deep within you.
