ELASTIC

Elastic In2it! Card 1B

“You can’t have creativity

unless you leave behind the bounded,

the fixed, all the rules.”

-Joseph Campbell

ELASTIC


You’re vulnerable.

Your hard muscles go soft.

Your fleshy raw emotion oozes out.

Authenticity burns like blue fire.

Your muscles get tired carrying your weight.

Letting go feels like you’re dying.

Salty sweat and tears

wash your old hurts clean.

Your bloody heart

feeds your tired liver with hope.

You breathe love into your lungs.

You see with soft eyes,

feel with new skin,

and hear with fresh ears.

Your bones carry you, not your muscles.

Your community cradles you.

If you pulled elastic –

You are ready to step In2it!

You are following your sense of

Sight, sound, touch, smell, taste,

And your 6th sense of Trusting Your Intuition.

 You entered this world as a baby. 

Your bones were not developed yet.

You were more cartilage than bone.

Your bones strengthen when

you started carrying your own weight.

Your strength is that you’re liquid.

You’re elastic.

You stretch.

You bounce.

You rebound.

Your boundaries are elastic.

You’re either expanding or contracting.

You surprise yourself with how elastic you are.

The floor that carries you

is like a trampoline.

You know that being ‘rock solid’

is flexible and everchanging.

You know that being ‘together’ is being relaxed.

REACH BEYOND

WHAT YOU THINK YOU CAN.

Creativity is what 'saved' me. My earliest mantra as a survivor was "It's not what I have, it's what I do with it". And my little jingles in my head continue to ring true. "Rules were made for people, not people made for rules. You can take my body, but you can't have my soul." Self discovery is my spiritual practice. I want to make sense of my world. The past few years with the Me Too movement and our current climate change shakes me to my bones. I use creativity for self discovery. I roam outside the box and stretch my comfort zone, knowing the fastest growth is on the edge. As a coach, I nudge you off your cliff, applaud your leap, and trust your creative process of messiness and chaos. Writers block, depression, nervous break down, even menopause are opportunities for spiritual growth. My coaching is meant to disturb your reality. It's in the cracks that light comes through. Whatever taps your creativity, unleashes your brilliance, helps you hear your soul's calling serves humanity and makes our world a better place. As a Transpersonal Therapist, I help you shed fear and resistance for rapid evolution. As an Ordained Minister, I understand that being human is a spiritual practice. As a published author, I advocate speaking your truth. Despite dropping out of high school, I accomplished a Master’s Degree in Transpersonal Psychology and Bachelor’s Degree in Clinical Nutrition. I am the author of Sensual Eating and In2it! Trust Your Intuition Deck and Guide, and am the co-founder of Body Choir Community Ecstatic Dance (1994) in Austin, Houston, Sante Fe and Ashland which inspired Ecstatic Dance around the globe.
