“If you were going to die soon and had one phone call that you could make……..
Who would you call and what would you say?
And why are you waiting?”
~ Stephen Levine 1937
A thought to ponder – who would it be and what would I say – and exactly! – if I want to say it, whats the reason for not making that call and saying it today…..
From contemplating this quotation, I realise just how much there is to say that is left unsaid….
Wow! For me, there is definitely more than one!
I have contemplated and mused over this in a couple of ways….
Firstly, I went to a quiet place within and just asked the question of myself – “what do I need to say to who” and allowed the images of each of the different people in my life to come into my mind and the words that need to be said to just flow…..
I tried to keep out of my own mind and almost observe this like a movie, checking in with myself to how each one was making me feel once the words had flowed…. then also consciously allowing this to float past me….. almost like as if it was written on a cloud.
I realised that I have different things to say to different people that range from “I forgave you a long time ago” to “Never ever forget how much I love you, now and forever more” and others from “You are amazing”, “Let your beautiful light shine”, “You make my life so rich”, “Thank you”… to name just a few
I found this to be quite a releasing exercise…. It is touching to the level of making me tearful – you know when something feels so beautiful, so heartfelt and so real that the tears flow….
Secondly, For the ones that really stuck in my mind, I also completed some mirror work (Louise Hay’s technique) and expressed out loud what I needed to say.
“Sometimes you search so hard for words. You look for a way to interpret the language of this heart and the unspoken bond you feel. But in the end you are left with nothing but silence. And deep down you hope it’s understood.”
— Yasmin Mogahed
There is so much to say – and yet, so often we forget to say these things and it may be just what that person needs to hear…. it may be the last added ingredient that that person needs for their own journeys….
I invite you to try this too, either write a list or go to that quiet place within and just let each person come into your mind and say what you need to say…. you could also try this using mirror work…. all different ways – all have the same end result….
I hope you find this releasing too and find the courage to give your gift of words to the person who needs it.
Till next time
