Harnessing the Power of Storytelling

Harnessing the Power of Storytelling
Many spiritual seekers aim to silence the mind and frown upon the stories it tells. “I am not my mind. I am not the story.” No, but you ARE the storyteller and there is great medicine in owning this. On Shameless Feminine Speaks “Sabotaging the Sabotage”, I shared a pivotal moment of confronting my doubt. Though instead of simply telling it to shush, I commanded it to tell a story with me. “Ok,...

Rebecca's Memoir - Chapter 1

A new chapter emerges from an old story in which now I feel as a ghost, returning to a life that is no longer mine.  Was it ever mine to claim or was it a gift lent to a young girl in search of her truth?  In all certainty it was a gift; a gift of many gifts.  Like a Chinese puzzle box, each compartment was a treasure which revealed the key to...

Rebecca's Memoir - Chapter 2

I remember the first time I sat and gazed into her eyes in that tiny healing room in San Diego, California.  Like the room, her little body didn’t seem big enough to produce the amount of light radiating from her presence.  I recognized her eyes instantly.  They accompanied my dreams on many a cold night in the previous Vermont Winter:  A mirror reflecting not the young face of my youth, but the sun-worn...

Rebecca's Memoir - Chapter 3

Rebecca's Memoir - Chapter 4

That North Star led me back to my dear friends in Vermont where I took a farming job up the road from our house.  It was here that I met my first teacher.  It came not as one person, but as a group of people who welcomed me into their meditation circle.  I joined them for a brief time, learning their chosen technique of meditation.  And it certainly was a technique!  It was...

Rebecca's Memoir ~ Chapter 5

Though I didn’t know it, agreeing to travel with my Aunt Maria would put me on a direct path to my teacher, Sarita.  At first, all I knew was that the purpose of Maria’s trip was to intensify her apprenticeship with a man named don Miguel Ruiz.  Since she was a dancer, I made the assumption that Miguel was a dancer as well.  I even went so far as to daydream of somehow...

Rebecca's Journey

Rebecca's Journey
Life for me has been a series of awakenings, each leading me towards the next. We all experience these awakenings. I see them as invitations of truth knocking at my door. Although it is not always convenient or comfortable to let them in, when I do, I give myself the greatest gift of moving forward in my spiritual evolution. One of those knockings came to me atop a mountain in Vermont.  It was...
