My God Moment

Print

my god moment 2015

 

During the past few months vocational rehabilitation services have come "under fire" making me question and feel badly for our clients, my staff and for those who serve the injured worker population.

As a counselor, we cannot help anyone if we aren't connected and balanced within.  I was on the Big Island last week in Kona and gave myself some time to do my yoga, meditate and pray. I asked to let go all of my sadness and anger and bitterness to those who have hurt us.  Once done, I walked back to the hotel and and started taking pictures on my phone. I started seeing a color which I thought was an aberration on my glasses but as I walked the color grew.  I thought that it was my glasses but I took the picture of the color thinking that if it is only my glasses the color would not come through the photo.  And here is what I took. And that needs no explanation except to say that this was my "God's Moment". 

So I know it still will be hard and tough for all of us working in the field and trying to remain true to ourselves while we help others, but once again I am affirmed that we have a "higher power" working with us.

Love,
Laurie Hamano
