The Phoenix process is about opening your heart up when you have misfortune. It is an individual journey and different for everyone. However, for all, the transformational journey involves surrendering in times of great turmoil.
PART IV: CHILDRENIn this part, lesser introduces us to her children and the extended family. There is a lot that you can learn from your family if you pay the attention. Spending time with family is also therapeutic in nature. When you are around the people, you love you feel safe and can open up to them. The people you love will also be frank with you and tell you as it is.
What are the single-stories that have been told about the people and the places that you work within? The stories that get told to keep people in their place, stuck in the barnyard and unable to soar? Challenge those stories and break hearts open so that new life can emerge. Be the angelic troublemakers in that place.
Background: Preserving the cellular structure at the highest possible resolution is a prerequisite for morphological studies to deepen our understanding of cellular functions. A revival of interest in rapid-freezing methods combined with breaking-open techniques has taken place with the development of effective and informative approaches in platinum replica electron microscopy, thus providing new approaches to address unresolved issues in cell biology.
Conclusion: In this review, I will focus on the platinum replica method after brokenopen cells have been broken open with mechanical shearing or detergent extraction. Often forgotten nowadays is the use of platinum replicas with stereomicroscopic observations for transmission electron microscopy study; these "old-fashioned" imaging techniques, combined with the breaking-open technique represent a highly informative approach to deepen our understanding of the organization of the cell interior. These are still being pursued to answer outstanding biological questions.
And comfort is exactly what I'm craving of as I pass through the fear and vulnerability brought on by another stage of the shift, which is what I want to focus on in this post. It's what I've called in the title "The Rift", and it's the stage at which, if it hasn't happened already, your heart is broken open.
This idea of a heart breaking open isn't about getting your heart broken in the traditional sense of shattering destruction. Instead, as an earthquake cleaves a rift in the planet's crust, this is a heart-opening to allow for passage, relief and better alignment rather than a heart-crushing resulting in shut-down and shielding. The broken-open heart is vast, passionate and vulnerable so it can contain and convey more love than before, whereas a heart-break in the traditional sense often results in a withdrawal from love.
The floodgates opened from the moment Adriana began her favorite pieces - many not only my favorites too, but easily universal favorites -- like "Ave Maria", "Don't Cry for Me Argentina" (sung with both English and Spanish verses -- beautiful), as well as selections from Puccini and Phantom of the Opera. I wasn't the only one crying -- half the small crowd who turned out to see her was breaking out the Kleenex left and right, and these were close friends and family members -- even her own parents whom I sat behind -- people who presumably had been hearing Adriana sing for years.
This was beyond feeling momentarily touched or moved. This was an undertow. Here was Adriana, pulling a whole group at once into her vortex. Precious because through the divine gift of song, she broke open our hearts so that our divinity could flow into the world, and one another, as exquisitely as hers was flowing into us while she sang.
I cried for the blessing of Adriana on so many levels, especially when realizing that this same love and divine talent had been flowing through her to my daughter for years. I cried in gratitude for the gift of witnessing it, of having been invited and present in this small private audience gathered to receive the outflow of this amazing energy through song. Because when passion and connection and talent combine into what I can only call love and it comes through on a high-speed connection like Adriana clearly has, it softens even the most guarded, hardest hearts into opening.
Why do we need to be broken open? Simply because as we shift, and view the external evidence of often chaotic or tumultuous change in the world at large, there will be immense fear, apprehension and unsettled-ness. It's there in spades already -- just watch CNN for an hour. We run the risk of being trapped in downward thought spirals, getting stuck trying to stay secure, or paralyzed to the point that if our hearts are not rent accessible we might never muster the courage to let our own light, our own purposes, pass through them and into the world. Without the broken-open heart, we each run the risk of shuttering it for good.
At the moment our world needs all the light, all the love, and all the open hearts it can get. Including and especially, yours. So if you feel the rift, if you're moving through life feeling broken open, I invite you to allow the superb poignancy of the process to permeate you at every level, and know that that is exactly what is supposed to happen. It won't level you; it will, in the end, buoy you.
When he left, the wall around my heart came tumbling down. The ice melted off the inner chambers of my soul. The doors to my ability to love swung open, inviting me to feel into those tender places so long ignored.

Seeds get just one shot and somehow each seed knows when it has the best shot at surviving and growing. Each seed knows when it is time to unfurl from this bent position. Each seed knows when it is time to stand up and break open its hard shell.
My sense here is that Jesus is not just speaking of his own death, his own breaking open. He is not just, in fact, telling himself that he needs to stop waiting. He is also telling us that we will need to be broken open in order to be who he has made us to be. We too have a purpose, an embryo inside us that God has put in us and we too need to be planted, broken open, in order to unfurl, stretch up and fulfill our purpose.
Unfurling, standing up, breaking open that hard shell does not always involve suffering and pain. Sometimes breaking means tearing down walls and patterns that have only served to limit you. Sometimes allowing the seed to die means waking up to the fact that it is time to unfurl and be who Jesus put you on this earth to be.
