As One...
by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

Beatrice, you have granted me the greatest gift anyone could by writing me today. I do believe that God speaks to us—to all of us—but that we are often in such pain and in such isolation and darkness that we cannot see the light and therefore we cannot hear. When we open our minds to the knowledge of what God really is and Who We Really Are, that is when true healing begins. Healing comes from within our Self. When we help each other to heal from within by seeing each other for Who We Really Are rather than what we appear to be, healing continues within our Selves, because we are not separate, but rather we are all One.

Thank you for sharing your story and your powerful thoughts with my visitors and me, Beatrice. By doing so you have opened a door for others on this site to heal. I am so blessed to have you, and people like you, so willing to help bring us all to healing, as One.

A blessing from on hig, your story
by: maurice

How right Darlene is when she says God speaks to us in wonderful and mysterious ways through each other. Great Beatrice you arrived on her site with your story of abuse. I can identify to some degree with all you write ever so honestly. I too was reared in a Catholic Home by a great and wonderful single Mom. Yes I lived with my guilt and fear of blamiing anyone for my abuse. I told no one until I too was 33, the year I began to say I am not the person others say I am. I am a true and wonderful birthed child in my own right. It gave me the greatest feelings to say I can love me, special and unique, There is no other with my specialness. I began to love myself from that time onwards. You Beatrice went trough alot at the hands of your slightly older cousin. I always find it hard when we can't make our Fathers and Mothers our best friends out of fear of what they will think or do to us. Or in most cases not want to bother them with our deep feelings of fear and doubt. Sadly your cousin threatened you with that. You have found Darlene who in her comment has given you her heartfelt sincere love with words of love that can only empower you. You sure have found the wonderful and beautiful you and thank you for your wisdom and encouraging advise in what you wrote to Darlene and her visitors. Always believe in your self. Say over and over again, I love me, live well, laugh alot, love much. Think positive, act positive and be positive in all you do and say each day you take your head off the pillow. Look at that wonderful and beautiful woman in the mirror. Love her, be gentle with her, hug and caress her, soothing away all the negative feelings and memories still there after that very uncaring and abusing cousin of yours. I can accomplish anything I want for me. God certainly spoke to me through you and Darlene Today.
