Kintsugi of the Spirit

Written by: Michele Borowske

   We have all heard the saying that, “We are spiritual beings having a human experience.” All experiences in these lifetimes are valuable. These are lessons that we agreed to, in our contracts, before coming into this realm. That being said because we have free will, we can still choose to forgo these lessons.  

The Japanese have a wonderful word for this, “kintsugi.” It is the art of repairing broken pottery with lacquer dusted with gold, silver, or platinum. It values the broken object rather than throwing it out. The repairs are meant to be highlighted as embracing its service and value.

This also reflects the philosophy of wabi-sabi, embracing the flawed or imperfections we have gone through. It tells each of us that whether in this lifetime, or previous ones, all of those lessons, traumas and brokenness are part of the human experience. It is your choice on how to handle them. We must learn to heal ourselves. By healing ourselves, we also heal those around us. Sometimes we get stuck in our brokenness or the victim mentality. We must see ourselves as valuable unique souls and see those scars as beautiful. That breakage makes you more valuable. Where ever a repair is made, the joint becomes stronger. We see the potential of our souls repurpose and reincarnate through these experiences.

We need to shift our mindsets and see the value of a life lived, the patina of age, and the wisdom we impart on others through our scars. Those gold repairs are our badges of courage. Wear them proudly. You are more precious than you know.
