HOPE

Hope In2it! Card 1B

“If you just set people in motion

they’ll heal themselves.”

Gabrielle Roth

HOPE:

I’m Dying to be alive

Violently praying

Holding on to letting go

My opposites crash into each other

Human birthing spirit

Spirit birthing human

In2it!

I am

raw

spontaneous

unrehearsed

Free to express

Tearing my heart open

Breaking down my resistance.

One gasp of breath.

One heart beat.

Through my vulnerability

prayer enters.

Through my heart breaking

spirit enters.

Free to connect

Flesh to flesh

Sweat to sweat

Teardrop to teardrop

Pounding heart beat

in sacred space

Whatever I express serves

human becoming spirit.

If you pulled hope:

There is light at the end of the tunnel.

There is life after death.

There is laughter after a big hard cry.

You are more than your story.

You are more than you think,

You are more than you believe.

A prayer of hope for YOU:

Reigning goddess of penetrating presence

Penetrate my heart

with exploding love.

Pierce through any doubt

of the magnificence I am.

Pop!

Pow!

Boi-ing!

Zap!

Bing!

Viola!

The deeper you go, the higher you fly.

You are a butterfly.

You are magnificent.

Spread your wings.

Feel the air lift you.

Faith fluffs your wings.

Beam

Yes! you are bright.

Bright laughter.

Bright heart.

Let your light shine.

YOU penetrate smallness.

Your presence illuminates all the way

into the corners of the room.

Right now is an exciting time to be alive. We live in a state of paradox. We have the abundance of technology at our fingertips. Despite our ability to connect to the world of people, places and information, depression, PTSD, and addiction plague humanity. As western medicine fails to serve human resilience and wholeness, natural plant medicine demonstrates shocking success in alcoholism, autism, and ‘treatment resistant depression’. Integration is how we find center in the midst of chaos. As adults we know change is our only constant. Integration therapy is the process of honoring our innocence, standing in our integrity, responding over reacting, and knowing our presence is our greatest gift to humanity. We become stronger from conflict when we face our fears, wrestle our monsters, and own our potential. “It’s not what happens to you, it what you do with your life experiences that make you who you are.” Psychedelic medicine is proven to be 80% effective in treating human suffering. It’s possible that distress is the fragmentation of our soul and healing is weaving our wisdom, accepting our humanness and integrating our mind, body, and spark of life. Transpersonal Psychology bridges the gap of science and spirituality; honoring that we are spirits having our human experience. As a Transpersonal Therapist, I help you melt 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 a chaotic childhood I was blessed to encounter psychedelics in my youth. In the absence of belonging to family, home and consistency, I found an abundance of synchronicity and Spirituality. My knowledge of science with a Bachelor’s Degree in Clinical Nutrition provides structure and a solid foundation. My Master’s Degree in Transpersonal Psychology offers tools of integration to live through PTSD, depression and addictions. 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 training facilitators around the globe.
