I was in a workshop this weekend, furthering my shamanic craniosacral training. In a session, I got to meet my shadow side. Not nice. But the survivor, the part of me that knows what needs to be done and does it. The part of me that knows how to go after those negative entities and energies that feed off the innocent. This is my great protector and the part of me that protects everyone I love, from family, friends animals, clients and anyone seeking help. The part that is not afraid to be real. My gifts and talents are a combination of all of who I am, and if I am to truly rise to my full potential and become the Healer I know I am, I need to acknowledge both the dark and light within me.
“One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious.”
Carl Jung (1875 - 1961)
Living my Purpose is what I am all about. How do we bring who we are authentically out into the world. Breast cancer was a huge wake up call for me and using that illness as a teacher was tremendously healing. I have been a healer all my life, but somewhere along the journey I started to lose sight of who I was authentically. It's been a real journey getting that back and given me more tools to help others find their way back.
