SUNBURST

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.

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.
