Taking Flight International Corporation

Taking Flight International Corporation Dr. Simington is a Grief and Trauma Management Specialist- Reinventing Joy and Self-Empowerment During those early years of grief I desperately sought healing.

My vision began to take root some years after the tragic death of my 13 year old son, Billy. In my search I frequently attended grief workshops and read numerous grief books. While each offered valuable information on grief, none provided the healing I needed to mend my broken heart, my fractured soul. What I learned in my search I now share with others, through Key note presentations, in my books

and resources, and through teaching the application of these methods to therapists and other therapeutic healers. I have designed and developed two certification training programs, The Trauma Recovery Certification Program, and the Grief Support Certification Program. Certification in both programs can be transferred for credit toward a Master’s Degree in Counseling.

Reflections On the Power of Hope
Jane A. Simington PhD. (March, 2024).

As a child growing up in a farming community, I learned to associate the month of March with the signs of Spring, including the abundant appearance of new life, and of how the continuations from that life would sustain our family. During March, calves, colts, lambs, chicks, and baby turkeys arrived; each requiring and receiving knowledgeable care; in the hope that upon their maturity, they would provide nourishment for the family; and money from the sales of the surplus, to purchase farm and household products, winter clothing for all, and Christmas gifts for us children. Today, as I reflect on memories of those Spring days, I acknowledge and am grateful for the expertise, dedication and continuous work required to achieve the desired goals; and I am also aware that even when those outcomes were not as positive as had been desired, in my childhood home, faith and hope prevailed.

Peace on Earth Good Will to All

The words from this age-old traditional song, based on the 1863 poem Christmas Bells, written by the American poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, are as relevant today as perhaps they were when written.

The Miracle of Gratitude
©Jane A. Simington PhD.
“Give us this day our daily bread” has for me, always been a prayer of both requesting and of gratitude. Among my fondest memories of childhood are the aromas that wafted from mother’s homemade bread, and especially are the memories of the smells that announced that special breads would grace our Thanksgiving Day meal. Growing up in a farming family, while we had limited material wealth, of bread, we were sure. Bread is made of flour; flour is made of grain. Our livelihood depended on the grain crops. We were grateful for the right mixtures of soil, rain, and sun that produced a bountiful harvest.
As a child, I learned that the Iroquois women wove the Cornucopia Baskets and filled them with corn to symbolize the abundance that pours into the physical reality from the abundance of the Universe. Corn sustained the life of the Iroquois. Abundant corn was their reason for celebration. They celebrated in gratitude the corn received, as my farming family celebrated the abundance of wheat.

At The Autumnal Equinox: Balancing Light and Darkness
© Jane A. Simington PhD.

This year the Autumnal Equinox falls on September 23. That morning, at 02:50, in the Northern Hemisphere, the sun will be exactly above the Equator and day and night will be of equal length. In a spiritual sense, as we begin to spend more time in darkness we innately and symbolically shift from an extroverted summer energy of play and connections to a more introverted energy of solitude and reflection.

Summer Abundance Results from Within
©Jane A. Simington PhD.

This morning as I enjoyed the last of my lilies opening into vibrant glory, I knew that the fullness and beauty of summer’s growth was ending, and that it was time to reflect on the successes and disappointments of the choices I had made in the spring. For years, I have been aware of the metaphoric lessons offered in my garden. The natural rhythms of the seasons cause me to reflect on the lessons that accompany those realities. In my early morning reverie, I had not noticed the unannounced visitor. As his eyes surveyed my vegetable garden, he gruffly commented, “Well, I see you will have potatoes and cabbage to live on this winter. That hot weather in May just dried up what I put in. I told my wife just this morning that with nothing from the garden and grocery prices so high, we will be in the poor house by November.” His words reminded me of a story I read years ago that helped me to recognize the power my thoughts and words had in creating my reality. It is a story told by a man who had lost his job and his wife’s meager earnings caused them to live just above the poverty level. One day, his young daughter came home from school telling him that she was to bring the next day something for the poor. Her mother started to blurt out, saying that there were not any she knew who were poorer than they. The grandmother blocked the mother’s words with her own. “Do not plant seeds of poverty in this child’s mind or she will see herself as poor and be poor for the rest of her life. There is still one small jar of plum jam in the cupboard left from last year’s abundant harvest.” 1.
