I died

I died

I underwent serious Shamanic Death in 2015. Everything was stripped from me – health, family, “friends”, work, etc. As I began to understand the enormity of what was transpiring, I would witness as more was leaving, taken, purged, and I would remain detached and curious about the process. I decided to actively partner with the process as I purged and released more, and more. Willingly, even, after a time. It wasn’t easy. But necessary. It was also achingly beautiful. Towards the end of the active process, I made an effigy of myself and all the things about me that I was letting go of. And I buried her. I gave her(former me) a lovely, private burial ceremony. I wept in gratitude. It was quiet, peaceful. So much so, that my next thought became “I have no idea what I just did, but this ought to be HUGE.” And it was. I surrendered to the process and watched as more was stripped away – my home, my business, more of my possessions. And to some extent, my community. Then a sudden, intense AF heartbreak occurred. And I was broken open more than I ever had been in my life. I came to understand that the pain I was experiencing and expressing was the culmination of pain I’d never felt, released, or expressed throughout my current lifetime. And some from past lives. The miracles that flooded in Graced me in such an astonishing way, I’m filled with tears to recall it. I sobbed from pain, from opening, and from gratitude all at once. I easily felt all the pain of the...
New Paradigm Partnering – walking the path

New Paradigm Partnering – walking the path

**Note – This was originally written in July, 2017 and was updated in September, 2017. As I’ve delved deeper into these themes, I’ve gained more clarity and share those thoughts as an addendum. Stay tuned as I will be sharing much more about this path very soon!   Wouldn’t it be nice if what we wanted and what we needed were the same thing? This could apply to anything in life, but what I’m immersed in exploring right now is how this applies to love. Please don’t take my musings here as indications that I possess answers. I’m sharing in this conversation, offering my thoughts and processes because I get turned on by thoughtful dialogue, and because I see that many of us are contemplating these same themes. I’ve engaged this contemplation for years, and have come to believe that many of us are still stuck in old-paradigm thinking about relationships, as well as what it means to partner, what it looks like, and what it feels like to partner romantically. Even those of us who lay claim to consciousness and live on the fringe.   Old paradigm   We think we have to be in partnership or find “The One” who is our soul mate, twin flame, our forever. The spiritual community is rife with this sort of thinking.   Let’s be honest – we are indoctrinated to grow up, get a job, get married, buy a house, have kids, buy more things…. to live within an old ideal, an out-moded system.   When we marry/partner we have these ideas about what it’s supposed to be, how life isn’t...
