~ FEEL, DEAL, HEAL .
One of the gifts I have received from supporting clients to integrate plant medicine ceremonies and other peak experiences, has been teaching them how to become friends with their FEELINGS. ✬
Sometimes families and even whole cultures have a spoken or unspoken “no feelings” rules. Feelings aren’t expressed or even spoken of. ✬
Sometimes it’s the opposite, it’s all about the feelings and they rule. Feelings flood all over the place and it’s messy. ✬
My teacher, don Martin taught me that feelings are part of the living energies and we must learn to BEFRIEND all of them so we can be healthy.
Feelings are Gatekeepers! Sometimes we love them, and at other times we want to escape them, but they often HOLD THE KEYS that unlock the doors to transformation and wisdom. ✬
They live and move in our body, standing with keys in hand at those doorways, waiting. And they will wait and WAIT and wait!!
Sometimes if they wait too long, our body will bare the burden and we will develop dis-ease where they have been waiting!
In order for us to step through the gate, we must become a courageous warrior and EMBRACE them.
Not just a hurried hug, but a full EMBRACE where we can listen and learn, rather than ignore or indulge. ✬
This is the DEAL, the price we pay to cross the threshold and enter through the doorway to the realms of transformation and HEALing. ✬
Because some feelings are dense, chaotic energy, to embrace them seems insane. It’s terrifying and overwhelming. But with practice and quite often, good support and a safe setting, it is possible. ✬
Notice the feelings you are numb to, afraid of, ignore, avoid or indulge in, are flooded by. They are Your Gatekeepers to transformation. Pay attention! Perhaps it’s time to embrace them. ✬
