Recovering from trauma


“Man learns through experience, and the spiritual path is full of different kinds of experiences. He will encounter many difficulties and obstacles, and they are the very experiences he needs to encourage and complete the cleansing process.”-Sai Baba

I feel as though I have been put in a very difficult situation, I’ve had the duty of revealing a secret to a community of people who confided and trusted in a man who has crossed the boundaries of patient-healer. I found out that he has been abusing of other women as well, this created feelings of fury and anger within me. I am grateful that I have a group of women supporting me in my decision. I am grateful for the space that people have held me in and allowed me to cry, share, and let it go. This is such a challenging time for me-I feel drained and challenged to my max on all levels.

On one hand I feel the anger for what this man has done, and on the other I feel pulled to see him as the human that he is-mistakes and all. I don’t know that there is a right or wrong in this situation-all I know is that I’m in the middle of a big tornado and that I was not at fault for any of it but that I do have a responsibility to speak up about what happened so that it doesn’t happen to any more women. This is my position-I have to move forward-I only ask that the light guide me and that I may not be blinded by this anger.
