Addiction, Death and Using the Past as a Catalyst for Change w/ Molly Murray – episode #13


In today’s episode you’ll hear from a mother who has actively chosen to not be held back by a “broken childhood”, but instead use it as a catalyst for change.

Soul Work Sheet 13

Song Lyrics:

Song one:
throw a stone into the water
making circles for young girls
stones can harm you
stones will heal the world
choose them wisely
change the world

Song two:
giving birth 1000 times (x 2)
to be a mother of so much (x 2)
this life I’m the spindle of this life (x 2)
it moves so quickly it move so fast (x 2)
there will be stillness but not yet (x 2)
this life I’m the spindle of this life

Song three:
weave and spin
weave and spin
this is how our work begins
mend and heal
mend and heal
take the dream and make it real.
