Salam alaikoum friends,
First of all I think it is time to thank you all for the ever lovely comments and thoughts you always leave here. And even though I rarely find the time to respond to them, they mean a lot to me, Barak Allahu feek!
You accompanied me here now for a while and if you read through some of my last posts, I think it is obvious that I am on a path of personal healing and becoming whole at the moment.
There were lots of changing incidences in my life over the last years and as I grow older I see the importance now to pay more attention to my true self.
Writing, and recently also blogging, means a lot to me. And as I live a happy but sometimes a very solitary life here up in the mountains at the edge of the world, writing is my essential tool to process my thoughts and thinking.
Although I am surrounded by lovely and supportive people, alhamdulillah, I sometimes feel the need to discuss ideas and meet with women who are on the same way.
In this concern internet is a blessing. Surely it cannot replace real friends and an eye to eye conversation, but it’s a great means to connect with others.
But since this blog here is a very public place and mostly focused on Moroccan life, on every-day-beauty, family and living the faith, I decided to create a second blog on a private basis and dedicated only to my personal healing process.
I would like to invite you to follow me and to build up something like an online-women-self-help-group. My wish is to bring into being a community of like-minded-women to meet and support each other on the journey to heal from old pain and past trauma, to share healing resources and ways on how to connect to the inner child and how to become whole again, inchaallah. That’s why I call this project “the healing community”.
No matter what your past was about, if you also are a seeker or believer, a survivor, a courageous, strong woman, who is in need for exchange but has no possibility to meet with others, to go to therapy or support-groups, I invite you to join me here! – “if we share our stories we will have many telepathic companions” (as said by Sark).
Blogging is a perfect way to do so and it is a great healing tool as well, because it allows you to have your own place for your personal musings. It is like an online journal that gives you the chance to create your own thing without obligation and according to what you like to write about; it’s a chance to tell your story, to focus on what is important for you and to gift yourself with a place where you can go when you need a time out, to reflect, to gather beauty (for example through photography and poetry) and to nourish your soul. It is a place where you are the boss but still get the chance to meet others, to inspire, to get feedback, to feel that you are not alone and to be guided to other places of inspiration, if and whenever you wish so.
And because healing is such a personal and also vulnerable thing, the whole “healing community” will be like a VIP-club and I keep my new blog closed to public and do allow only invited people to read there.
So if you are interested to become member of the club you need to make some commitment.
Leave a comment here or send me an email to itto.berber(AT)gmail.com and tell me in short why you wish to join in.
Then I will send you and invitation that gives you the right to read my blog and to join the community. You will then have to create a google-web-account (if you do not already own one) and to create your own healing-blog, or at least dedicate a new “healing”-category on your existing blog, where you write from time to time about your personal healing way, where you share your story and experience with others.
Wanna join me? – I am looking forward to meet you there! Masalama!
(Note: This blog will be continued as before twice a week with news about meaningful motherhood in Morocco, inchaallah)
