Operation: Overlord

 

Overlord refers to the Allies’ code name for the Battle of Normandy. The day is referred to as D-Day (June 6th, 1944) and represents the first day of Victory of the Allies over the Axis Powers. D-Day was also a day of significant loss of life for the small town of Bedford, Virginia. The town had the highest per-capita loss of citizens on that day with 19 soldiers killed, most were in the same Company. To honor the 4,400 U.S. soldiers lost on that day, the National D-Day Memorial was dedicated on June 6th, 2001 in Bedford. https://www.dday.org/

This morning as I gently stirred from sleep, I could see a vision of the main arch of the memorial in my mind. It is a tall granite and stone structure and appears as both a tombstone and a Victory Arch, with the word “Overlord” carved across the top. It visually represents the cliffs that the soldiers had to scale, while gun-fire and artillery shells hailed down upon them from above. A tactically disadvantaged position to be in for any battle. Not to mention the vulnerability of a beach landing and having no where to hide nor to be protected.

As I write, I can see how this morning’s image is showing me where I find myself as this time in my life. Through my inner warrioress, I have worked many years to overcome the wounds of my life and particularly those of my childhood. For so long, I felt I was fighting “an uphill battle.” Often my emotional healing involves imagery of waves and beaches. This morning as I awoke, I was being shown how the tide has turned; I have overcome so, so much. While the battle has been won, there is still work to do… Thank you for joining me on this journey!
