deeper still

when your longing is holy and good, the sigh comes deep and tears spring

there is knowing and unknowing- an ache so deep for what seems indescribable

the call for more and deeper and to be bound and unbound at the same time, intimacy we’re created for and can’t put words to

it’s the mingling of the divine and with the divine; to be touched with a heavenly hand here on earth, giving us a taste of all we don’t yet get to have

a holy longing, to merge with all that is divine already in us

it’s a yes murmured in the dark, a vulnerable openness to be seen and held

the healing comes and the longing grows, deeper still


About Erika Barrett

Endlessly curious and a strange mix of too simple and way too complicated, I'm in awe of the beauty and glory this life offers, celebrate resourcefulness and finding simplicity in life. I am a certifying LifeCoach, specializing in helping others find a way forward towards crafting a life of joyful purpose. I'm also Masters Level Practictioner of Splankna Therapy, which is a mind-body-spirit therapy model. I'm a currently single mama to three beautiful souls, and I love to be outside, adventuring and exploring, laughing, playing in the water and hugging those around me. I'm a believer that life is rich when we become aware of the little moments placed before us and embrace them fully-the joy, sorrow, beauty, love and pain. Life is too short to be so serious, yet there is so much devastating brokenness all around us that feels crushing. My writing is about a journey into wholeness and restoration. For me, you and those around us. So won't you join me in diving into our experiences and hearts? Feel free to share a thought or many, and please, please, love those you're with.
