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!

Writing out my thoughts has helped me to gain a new perspective of myself. In sharing these writings, it is my hope to help others to better understand themselves. It is my belief that with each of us who chooses this path of greater understanding of thy self, that it inspires others to do the same. This building momentum is the force that drives me to share, for in my vulnerability, I find my strength. I believe that you can also find yours there. ~~~In reading some of my posts, you will see that growth is not always pretty. It is in breaking apart and coming undone that a seed sprouts and breaks free of its own captivity. It is also out of mud that the lotus blossoms. ~~~Please join me in seeing the beauty of growth within the deconstruction of our limiting beliefs. ~~T.C.

It is a great mystery that though the human heart longs for Truth, in which alone it finds liberation and delight, the first reaction of human beings to Truth is one of hostility and fear! -Anthony de Mello
