At the end of a sermon in church, sometimes the minister gives a blessing, or in other traditions a well wish. This is where the person sends the other person off with a message of hope. Irish blessings I find to always be the best. Like this one:
Wishing you always...
Walls for the wind,
A roof for the rain
And tea beside the fire.
Laughter to cheer you,
Those you love near you,
And all that your heart may desire
Blessings are about heart. This is about putting your ego aside and getting down to humanity, seeing how we are all connected and all lovely in some way. We are all deserving of some kindness and compassion. From this realization holding hope for the other and sending them out to a better life.
Therapy is like this for me. The room may be filled with pain and fear. I also know it is filled with hope and joy. Regardless, when someone leaves my office, I hold excitement for their week, knowing that they are changing just as everything around them is changing. So if you go out from therapy...this is my wish for you
May you reap love from your honesty
May you give yourself compassion daily
May you know that the mystery lies in the not knowing
May you know that you're journey is perfectly yours
May you let the good in always.
