Reconnecting to the Zone
Prior to this major event my MOM died. I was 14. My mom was 41.
My years as a teenager left me wondering if in any way my mom's death created a shift in my identity.It was on the night of that actual performance my quest began. Was there any connection to why for so long I could not connect into the Zone.
After many years of studying the mind/body connection in 1995 I found the answer and reconnected to the ZONE.
Last night I wanted more than anything to be able to watch Joannie skate. However, I was on board a flight with malfunctioning TV screens. Nothing by coincidence. Throughout the flight I kept sending her love and empowering thoughts of strength and encouragement. Late last night I got to watch the replay brilliantly covered by CTV in Canada.Watching her skate I could feel her mothers' presence, guiding her, their connection lending Joannie the strength to jump, to spin, to complete what they as a team had started so many years ago.
My heart aches knowing what she has yet to go through by now being a motherless daughter but I also know that this is part of her personal journey.
