Sometimes life hands us circumstances that feel like too much to bear.

A death or a diagnosis changes life for everyone. Whether it’s you, or a loved one, life is different. It may have been a gradual or abrupt change, but either way it’s unsettling, even frightening.

If you already feel a connection to spirituality, that connection may feel challenged by the events in your life. If you don’t already have a spiritual practice, you may be feeling the need to develop one.

Perhaps you feel sad, confused, depressed or numb, and the support being offered (or NOT being offered) to you from friends and family may not feel very helpful, or at least not enough.

You feel like life is falling apart, and you don’t know what you can count on anymore.

You may feel tired all the time, and really uncomfortable in your body. You may be in pain. Just getting out of bed is an effort, or maybe it’s actually impossible.

You’re probably trying to just keep on keeping on, but everyday life feels hollow and meaningless. You feel out of sync with the rest of the world. So many parts of your life may be suffering from this feeling of disconnection — your family life, your professional life, your sense of having value in the world. Perhaps, even your sense of whether it’s really worth it to keep moving forward.

You may be thinking that somehow this is your fault, that if you’d done something differently things wouldn’t have happened the way they happened.

I want you to know that you can find peace right in the midst of what feels like an impossible situation. There is refuge available to you. You can walk through this time of your life with certainty, right in the middle of uncertainty. Life is changing, and probably won’t ever go “back to normal”, but these changes can be rich doorways to deeper truths in life.

I know. I walk this path myself, and have helped many folks like you do the same.

For now, please, sign up for my newsletter and download Spiritual Practices 101, a home study course put together by my husband, Tom Fuller, and I. It explains what spiritual practice is, and includes a number of recorded guided meditations. This is a taste of what I offer, and it could help you in very immediate, palpable ways.

You are so much more than your current situation. The story of your life has something to show you. Are you ready to step fully into your truly human life?
