SUNBURST

SunBurst In2it! card 1B

SUNBURST

I come here to see my shadow dance.

I come here to exaggerate my shadow

 and watch it shrink as I shower it with love.

With your love, your compassion

Now with my own love and self-compassion.

 

I keep coming back.

Back and forth.

Following my shadow cast from my sunlight.

 

I keep showing up

cutting a groove

that leads down into me.

 

My belly button pounds to escape

my comfort zone.

THUMP! THUMP!

Heart beat.

Loud fear.

THUMP! THUMP!

Feet stomp.

Courage stalks memories.

A tight lipped hiss inhale.

Inhale fear.

A slow pressing exhale.

Exhale courage.

 

Tears and sweat roll down my body

melting my fear into the floor.

I dance in a puddle.

 

My puddle turns into pond.

Pond swells into a creek.

Creek spills into river.

Gushing hope.

Breaking dams.

Flooding my dance

with love.

Looking into my puddle

I see sunbursts.

 

I come here to see my shadow dance.

I come here to exaggerate my shadow

 and watch it shrink as I shower it with love.

With your love, your compassion

Now with my own love and self-compassion.

 

If you pulled sunburst

you are the center of your universe.

What burns inside you

beams out of you

unstoppable.

You know what your heart desires.

You know your truth.

NO negotiating.

NO compromise.

NO shadow operating today.

 

Your relationships feel you

see you

hear you.

Your presence makes this world

a better place.

Show up for yourself.

 

Be SELF-ish with a Capitol S!

you are the center of your universe.

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.
