Do you Need to Create a Chrysalis?

Do you Need to Create a Chrysalis?

I want to share with you the magic of my most recent shamanic performance that took place on Sunday, May 17th in New York.

I just emerged from my ceremonial chrysalis and did a magical Butterfly Dance.

This was an in-depth ceremony for me as well as a shamanic performance and journey for the women in the audience.

I first wrote a poem and then danced it. The poem was a shamanic journey through the process of creating my chrysalis, feeding on it to become my dream and finally emerging as my embodied potential.

“But what is this chrysalis?” you may ask.
In nature, the chrysalis is the new skin that the caterpillar builds in order to nurture and protect its transformation into butterfly.
The Sacred Feminine School of Wisdom teaches us that women also need to create a chrysalis to nurture and protect our transformation. Throughout time, there have been different ceremonies, rites or special places for women to do this, from the Moon Lodge to the Red Tent.
If you are right now undergoing a change —or even […]

Dream Express Oracle
My new inspirational fantasy novel is out, and I am celebrating through fun Book Signing Parties both locally in New York and globally online.
Here’s a preview of the Dream Express Oracle I am using to present this magical story to those who attend the Book Party.
Card:Dragonfly
Chapter: No 8- Dreamboro Plaza
Synopsis:
Angelina finally accepts her Shadows and how they have distorted her perception and trusts Dragonfly Diva’s guidance. As she surrenders her resistance, the “N” train stops and they exit the wagon. Angelina finds herself in utter darkness. Then she falls into a vision where she meets her DreamSelf, the person who she is in the future if she reclaims the Dream in her Soul. That exquisite vision breaks Angelina’s heart apart, to open it to the secret longing in her soul.

Prayer: Help me grow wings

Sunday Prayer
Help me Grow Wings
 
Great Spirit in All that Is,
Help me grow my wings
like the Butterfly,
from within.
Bring me back home
when I march ahead,
collecting feathers
all over the place
of flapping madly
to change the winds
without feeling the flight.
Bring me back home
to prune the feathers
forming in the chrysalis
of my imagination.
Bring me back home
to feel the flight
in my delight.
Bring me back home
to gather the faith
the joy and the desire
in my heart.
For only from my heart
can I leap to soar.
Only from my Sacred Heart
can I open my wings
to change the winds of the world.

NOTE: This prayer holds wisdom from the acred Feminine School of Wisdom. Here’s a preview: When we want to fly to our dreams, many of us tries to find the means outside. We do things to change things in our external environment. But it does not work like that, and Butterfly shows us why. Our wings grow from within, through Internal Actions, like allowing, receiving, releasing, embracing. They grow through our change of perception and the release of old stories. They grow by us embracing and owning […]

Poem: The Forest of the Wild Red Rose

Saturday Poem
The Forest of the Wild Red Rose
 
 
Beloved, you are about to enter.
Here is what you are reaching for:
 
A deep red rose
unfolding in perfect velvet spirals
emanating
a sweet musky aroma
that spreads through the dwelling
and penetrates every aperture.
It stands alone, unguarded
at a clearance
showered in golden light
surrounded by ancient trees
near running water.
 
The deep in the red is for my depth.
I dive into the mystery of Soul.
I am not afraid to touch
the darkest folds of truth.
 
What this means to you
is that I can see into your Soul.
If you are hiding, best not enter.
I can dive with you to that pain
hiding inside the most secret folds of your being.
I can rise with you
to the most sublime regions of your luminescence.
I can be there for you. With you.
I can hear the Infinite Whisper of the Soul.
It is the ink of my poetry.
 
The red is for my passion.
I am fiery.
Mine is the fire that initiates.
The fire that illuminates.
The fire that cooks and shapes.
The fire at the center of the ceremonial space,
around which the muses dance,
the Goddess sings,
the people gather for warmth.
 
What this means for you
is no comfort.
No […]

Poem: Soul Hatching

Saturday Poem
Soul Hatching
 
Your Soul is hatching.
You are descending into your Sacred Self.
Broken open is the shell of your consciousness
that treats you as a stranger
Veils of Forgetfulness and Deception
descend upon your mind.
Voices call your by a name
you have often heard,
yet you know in your heart
it is not you.
You seek the Majestic Swan
though you believe yourself
to be the Ugly Duckling.
You stay in the mystery
of your disowned, unknown Self.
You enter the terrifying silence.
You dive into the petrifying stillness.
And even when you see its reflection
in the pure waters,
even then you hear your voice
that is not yours crying
“Go back!
This is not real!”
But you stay. You dive.
You crack that shell
and feel the old wound hurting,
feel the loss and find the love
and the shell breaks open.
The bird or your Soul
breaks free.
The Swan flies into the light.
Delight in its emergence.

Open a space for what you want

Monday Meditation
 
Open a Space
 
Whatever it is you want today…
Open a space for it.
 
Open a space in your senses
so that you can perceive it.
Open a space in your mind
so that you can believe it.
Open a space in your eyes
so that you can see it.
Open a space in your heart
so that you can trust that you deserve it,
that the universe wants to give it to you
and that it wants you as much as you want it.
 
Open a space in your heart and your hands
so that you can receive it.
Open a space in your voice
so that you can summon and affirm it.
Open a space in your time
so that it can find you.
Open a space in your home
so that it can walk into your life.
 
Open a space in your emotions
so that they can sing it into space,
a frequency launched inside
a magnetic capsule that bursts
and attracts all the allies, resources, tools and materials
for it to show up in time and space,
for it to rain in possibilities, opportunities and synchronicity.
 
And if there’s anything or anyone inside or around you
shooing it away, denying it, doubting it, canceling […]
