Colors – Day 7
January 06, 2019
Did I forget to mention that joy is a feeling too? But the trick is, when we look for joy, it’s hard to find. Joy is made up of all the other colors that exist. Joy is when we’re willing to surrender to all our experiences and all our emotions.
Prayer: Help me to be not so frightened of feeling my emotions. Send me exactly what I need to stay emotionally alive.
From the book: 52 Weeks of Conscious Contact
About the author

One of Melody's more recent titles is The Grief Club, which was published in 2006. This inspirational book gives the reader an inside look at the miraculous phenomenon that occurs after loss--the being welcomed into a new "club" of sorts, a circle of people who have lived through similar grief and pain, whether it be the loss of a child, a spouse, a career, or even one's youth.
