Over the past two years since I was last active on this blog, I have been working. Working at a new full time job, which has taken up a lot my energy. But in order to stay resourced at this new job, I have had to work to clarify who I am as a person and a healer. This has helped me understand what I can uniquely offer the world during a time of great transformation. I know that this exploration will be a life-long journey, but I recognize the wisdom that now resides in my bones from the little part of the path I have walked so far.
My path has led me into deeper ways of working with plants and nature as a powerful force for transformation. It has also brought me to an embodied awareness of cycles of transformation and how they play out in my own life. I have come to feel gratitude for my bipolarism, which I have learned to see simply as a neurodivergency, and which has gifted me with a stronger experience of what transformation feels like and looks like.
I have created internal maps for this transformation process and, thanks to the work of Cathy Skipper and Florian Birkmayer (see AromaGnosis), I have ways to name these maps and present them to others. And I have found that this process has allowed me to go deeper into my process with courage and resiliency. I no longer fear my "dark nights" or shun the fire of my anger.
And I am excited to offer what I have learned to the world. If you would like support for your own personal evolution, please reach out! You can learn more about my own personal technique for supporting transformation here.
