HAMPTON UPDATE:. The McDevitts heard from CHOP, all his testing looked great. In fact, his heart function was a little too good, so the surgeon is concerned that he might have wild collaterals (vessels that formed to make up for the lack of normal blood flow). Collaterals could rule him out for transplant depending on the quantity and location of them...so they're headed back to Philly for a cardiac MRI in the next couple weeks. If that looks ok, he will be ready to list! 🙏🙏 #hamptonrichardmcdevitt
Happy Monday! 🤗Thankful for a great weekend, now it’s time to hustle! 🙏Heads up!

Ghosts in your midst, bodies in your wake, but you couldn’t break through the chains to act, to break the pattern.
When our hearts break, it’s devastating. I can’t explain, nor do I want to try, or be told why or how something like betrayal of the heart can cause physical pain, illness & paralysis in the body.
The urge to combat through it with sweat, ambition, “healing others”, new love😍 going back💀quickening the pace, heroics, or some other flavor is rich. Maybe it’s chasing the pain, maybe it’s running from it. They seem related and neither allows the wound to bleed, cleanse and mend.
Mending is like surfing close to shore, close to the break - you’re going to get tiny shells stuck in your teeth, scuffs on your knees and for some reason more sand sneaks into your bum than when paddling further out, but those waves bring everything.
Wipe the blood off, empty the sand, allow the salt water to purify and give the gashes what they need to heal.
I won’t praise heart break like it’s some sort of demented hero, inspiring these words, or give credit to those carrying around their jar of hearts, as if they spark a grand alchemy. Royalty will always turn pain into power, that does not make the infliction glamorous & the days of violation are done.
It’s most important to give ourselves the compassion others were gobbling up.
It may make some uncomfortable the way I’m supporting the break, allowing it to flow rather than denying it, pushing it down, smothering it, silencing it, controlling it, rushing it, medicating it, instead letting it bleed until cleansed, taking a quest to the root of where it all started - beyond the veil, beyond the illusion, beyond the shadows.
Beyond the wound.
Closing doors to all that violates,
gently honoring what I deserve,
is opening doors to deliciously higher elevations.
That’s the rebirth and that’s healing.
Break the chains.

“Show me you are different than those other vampires. Show me you can love me wild.” - me
Love is the healing.
Love is being true.
True to yourself.
True to your destiny.
True to others.
Love is honoring yours & others destined path.
Love is doing no harm.
Love is relinquishing the illusion of control and trusting in yourself & another, despite the noise, the past, the false notions, outdated beliefs & upbringing.
Love is the healing.
Love is being true.
Love thrives when we sink deeply into our truth. Even if there are those shining the “bright side”, the “right way”, “the light”, the illusion of control; Diluting your love, your truth, your delicious darkness, your beautiful multi-faceted rainbow mood.
Sink deeply, softly into your truth anyway.
Truth is boldly both. Dark. Light.
Beauty is both.
Love & Life are both.
Energy is both.
All your might sun & moonlight.
One without the other is not true, not real, not even sexy.💋
Love is truth. The alive part of truth is in what you are ready, or willing to accept as true, what you are prepared to confront, prepared to love. And so the best of us have lived with lies, fake love, fear. All you will lose by staying true is that which is fake.
It’s a dance with illusion.
Delaying the inevitable sharpens the blow.
You will know truth because it makes your heartbeat quicken, soul deep, & there’s this vibe to it.
It comes to you swiftly, but gently.
Without forced effort.
It’s subtle, graceful and if ignored monstrous.
That’s where the medicine lives.
The challenge is trusting your soul through the noise, deception, confusion, seduction.
Lack of forced effort is the heart's true power. All it desires is to be free, allowed to fly and speak through you.
It’s looking for a vessel.
You hold no power over the heart.
It always wins.
Listen, feel and let it flow through you.
Stay Wild. Stay Free.
