Angel of Grace

When I’ve worked with clients struggling for sanity, sobriety, peace and the ability to love,

scrambling           scratching     crawling       groping along life’s pathway 
they wonder why it is difficult to heal

Even after they’ve told me about the abuse and violence from their childhood, the disconnect with their body from the trauma does not enable them to relate their childhood loss with their insatiable need for love/satisfaction.  The gratification that only love gives.  The time seems to have passed them by until they look back and remember

the dog     the redwood trees    brush in the golf course    fishing on the river   the wooden staircase to the back door

Childhood loss is on one side of the scale and the addiction on the other. 
Between the two is the angel of grace.
