    My heart aches for young Viga…
    While at the same time, my Spirit celebrates the courageous, resilient, and most loving real-time Viga.

    It’s true. There is healing in every telling…
    Hugs!

      Thank you dearest friend. It’s your support and encouragement, along with that of my family, that is keeping me going with this very important piece of my life.

    Thank you, Viga for your words and for mentioning my blog post. The blogging world is full of other survivors like you and me who are now beginning to speak out about their abuse and their healing. Not all blog posts are about the bad things that happened to us as children. Some of them are written about the healing and the freedom that comes from healing from incest and other forms of child abuse. Welcome to my world and to my blog Spiritual Journey Of A Lightworker. Some time over the next few days, I would like to add your blog to my blog roll too if that is okay with you.

      Oh absolutely Patricia. I was hoping you and the other bloggers who I support here would do the same for me. The more we work together and share our ideas, the more we can help others who might be just that little bit hesitant to come out from under. And it’s my pleasure to mention you as I feel you have so much positive and healing material to share.

    I can feel your inner spirit shining through your courageous journey- to finally have a Voice; has freed you from a prison of shame. I believe you remind me of my favorite bird- a red tail hawk, who is learning how to fly again, in spite of his injured wing. Love You!!!

    Hi Viga, just found your blog through My Justice, Having a voice is so important, and I applaud you for finding your voice, it’s not easy to open up to the world and say hey, I’m a victim of incest, I’m speaking up. I too am a victim of incest, and have finally found my voice, and am speaking up for all to hear, Now that my two children know, I hold nothing back anymore, have posted many poems on groups I belong to on facebook, have my blog where I post all my poems about my incest and abuse by others. I have written a poem that has been made into a song which was a dream of mine, and it is going to be played at the festival in West Virginia through a group Healing through Creativity. I am finally a survivor, but like Trish said, those nightmares and flashbacks still haunt us, and sometimes it is hard to stop them, I have been haunted by them now for 2 days, and like Trish am having a hard time getting them out of my head. Patricia Singleton, is also a friend of mine, and I love her dearly, for also speaking out. We need to speak out and be heard, the world needs to know that abuse of any kind is not something to hide away, forget about, pretend it’s not happening, but it did happen, and one difference can change all that, and that is what I hope we can all do..God Bless You for what you are doing, big hugs to you..Mary
    I would like to add you to my blogroll also..you can find my blog at http://www.nippercats.blogspot.com

    Thanks so much for commenting Mary, along with adding my blog to your blogroll. I’ll be doing the same with Nippercats. I also originally found you via My Justice (I think) though I recall emailing you from another blog since your location was shown as Ontario, where I am.

    Congratulations on your wonderful rise above incest and abuse an on having one of your poems made into a song.That’s wonderful. I often think experience like our unleashes some of the most creative people in the world and like to think there’s some good that comes from the bad. You, Patricia McKnight, Pat Singleton, and so many others are proving that.

    Thanks too for joining my Facebook page at OUT FROM UNDER. I look foward to more correspondence with you and all our fellow survivors. We’re one heck of a great bunch don’t you think :))
