The Healing Journey

Demian Yumei’s thoughts about the healing journey, the dreams that call to us and the voices that hold us back. This is a collection of writings and musings, songs and poetry that arise from quiet moments and panicked ones, from inspiration and despair.

No one is 100% idealistic or positive all the time, but each step we take, dark or light, takes us closer to home — to our truer selves, to wholeness and connection with one another.

You’re not alone.

Welcome to the Journey <3

Realistic, Not Fatalistic

Realistic, Not Fatalistic

Written by on January 9, 2020 in The Healing Journey with 0 Comments

As a Dreamer, I’m sometimes accused of being unrealistic. But I am realistic. I’m just not fatalistic. There’s a difference. Being realistic is seeing reality for what it is — both it’s limitations and it’s possibilities. Being fatalistic is seeing only the shadow and not the light. Somehow, being realistic has come to mean being […]

Dear Dreamer, Going into the New Year, I am filled with hope, but I cannot pretend I’m not shaken by what I see. The specter of war looms ahead and I wonder if we will call it into our reality or draw the line. This is a time when it could be so easy to […]

Casting a Light

It’s important to speak out, to use your voice. In this time of dissension and hate, it’s important to share the thoughts that are meaningful to you — To speak of love and kindness. To shift one’s perspective. To find beauty in the moment. Not to escape but to feed your self, your soul. Don’t […]

Love Does Not Require

Love Does Not Require

Love does not require you to be perfect to shine through you. Our task is to decide how we will express that love, in what ways love will enter into this world through the portal of our lives. Not whether we’re deserving of this task or not. The idea of being a channel for love […]

Every moment you breathe, that you live and bring your conscious mind to is sacred. Self awareness is a form of worship, not of oneself, but of Life of which you are a part and expression of. When you step into your awareness of Life you can’t help but see that you do not, can […]

Anywhere I Please © Demian Yumei Do I wear my heart on my sleeve? Damn straight I do. Betrayed, crushed and used from early childhood on, I can wear my heart anywhere I damn well please. If my father could wear my heart on the sole of his shoe, if the world can close its […]

Taking Up Oxygen

Taking Up Oxygen

Written by on April 10, 2019 in The Healing Journey with 0 Comments

Taking up oxygen. You know that reference? When someone presumably worthless is using up valuable resources better used by someone else? It’s how a lot of survivors of abuse feel like. After pulling through an exceptionally long period of chronic fatigue, I took a short walk last night … more like a stroll. Then again […]

          Silent Night by Demian Yumei and Stacey Young   The story of a baby born in humble surroundings in the dead of winter touches my heart. No matter where I am in my spiritual journey, this image always moves me. It’s not where the baby is born that’s so remarkable. […]
