It occurred to me today that I have been sharing some of my thoughts and poems with you, but some of you may not really know who I am.

I am Megan Freeland. I’m an ordinary Aussie girl. I am married to a great guy Scott, who I call Freed. I have an almost 9 year old daughter, Trinity, and a fluffy little pup, named Ruby, that I call Moo, Mooey, or moo moo moo moo.

Why am I filling up your Facebook with my stuff? Well a couple of years ago I had an epiphany after my dad died. A few years before that, I had a full on spiritual awakening, and many years before that, when I was a little girl, I was sexually abused.

So, that epiphany I had a couple of years ago led to me writing a book…..The Magic and The Mire.   Book Cover blog image

It’s about spirituality and sexual abuse. So, do you see where I am coming from?

The Magic, that was my spiritual awakening

The Mire, that was my sexual abuse.

The action out of the epiphany; quit my job, write a book and share my story.

Writing is the way I channel my thoughts about the world, the universe and my kind spirituality. This is the way my soul likes to express its stuff through the lens of my ego; which is direct, honest, compassionate, sensitive and a likes a joke.

So this is me, following my soul’s purpose. Sometimes it is very deep, beautiful and inspiring. Sometimes I am blessed to be able to write divinely inspiring or darkly expressive poetry. Other times, I like to write about how much I struggle with anxiety and depression or I will share insights about my spiritual understandings and experiences.

I hope that the things I post inspire you or are informative, helpful, thought provoking or at least interesting. I also hope that if you want to know more about me, how I cope with my sexual abuse and learnt to integrate it and how I try with all my might to live a spiritually aligned life, you might like to read my book. It aims to break the silence we have around sexual abuse, but is also aims to be heartfelt, challenging and inspiring.

Oh, and I am especially passionate about meditation, I can be fierce about women’s empowerment and I advocate speaking out about stuff you think should change in the world. I revere the divine light inside us, but know that the shadow side of life is just as relevant and important. I won’t shy away from talking about it either…and I like to laugh as much as I can.
