Whether you have experienced multiple meditative and journaling practices or none, you will in this workshop, significantly and newly discover more multiple dimensions of self-healing, greater insight and coping in this time of transformation as your time of transformation and creative resolution
Journaling offers a space of sacred pause, from which honesty and creativity easily emerge as core requirements to come to related resolution.
We are all heroes, say all great ancient spiritual traditions, or we wouldn’t be here adventuring and evolving on the earth plane. Whether we talk about designated recovery from addictions, trauma, self-healing, empowerment, therapeutic intervention, they all, to me and actually Carl Jung as part of his definition of archetypes, challenge us to become who we truly are – heroes.
We truly earn our wisdom through being wholly responsible for our lives; and daring to choose what we come to know in our heart of hearts is right and supports our authentic selves is a sacred act of separating out and choosing with higher clarity and awareness. These choices, in turn, always support the greater good.
Focus on these words: Willing to be Lead Towards Your Heart to open your heart. Are You? How does it feel when you read this title? The heart is our multidimensionally operative center of being. It rules our bodies, feelings and insights. Ten Guidelines to Open Up Willing to open up (perhaps, again – after …
I see the story as a key “handle” to self-healing, recovery, empowerment, and transformation. It is a simple metaphor that offers centering inner “links” to children and adults who feel they have lost their sense of self to be able to develop truly greater selves, and the wherewithal to successfully meet and transcend life’s challenges.
Bullying has finally become a key topic and recovery focus for our times. Merinda is fundamentally a story about understanding that bullying only continues to occur when we believe ourselves to be victims, which directly creates an inner “giveaway” of ourselves along with a covered-up “inner bully.” Like Merinda, we “please to survive.” Dysfunction creates and perpetuates unending power struggles in relationships endlessly ricocheting between dominance and submission. I am excited to tell Merinda’s story in all settings that commit to teambuilding, interdependence, new leadership skills, and healing partnerships.
The Core of Codependency I had not heard this particular phrase to describe a key symptom of codependency until my publisher mentioned it when we were collaborating on Part II of my recently-published empowerment fable, Merinda and the Magic Mirror: A Tiny Tale of Transformation. The faulty belief system that can perpetuate codependency is exactly …
Please come and bring your friends and family to this unique community event and holiday food drive to launch the empowerment fable for women and girls by Marjorie Baker Price, MErind and the Magic Mirror: A tiny Tale of Transformation just published through Productivity Publications. The book includes Your Magic Mirror by Marjorie and Kay Whipple, the special journaling and guided meditation section which follows the book. The book is available online at Amazon.com and other online bookstores as well as to order at any bookstore across the country. Merinda and the Magic Mirror presents a little girl who is so caught up in “pleasing to survive” that she is unaware that she is cut off from being able to listen and be her own authentic self. It presents her journey of transformation, looking within to find herself, knowing she really can freely, creatively respond in empowered ways. It breaks repeated cycles of dependence and abuse, supporting self-healing and inner trust.
We remain such a barbaric society in great denial, filled with excuses, blame, resentment and entitlement that takes us as far away from our own great spirits as it endlessly perpetuates great abuse. No wonder we cannot make peace within and without! The political challenges of our times are the spiritual challenges of our times; and we cannot afford to continue to deny, excuse, justify and blame who we decide to objectify, neglect and violate. As it was said, “what we do to the least of them . . . ” we do to ourselves – and we all continue to lose…We can only recover through self-healing, which then leads to enlightened knowing about how to really care and be compassionate without condition. That in turn supports the greater good – said to be our spiritual mission – that we continue to seek to actualize throughout our lifetimes.
When peace, intimacy and freedom are missing or fractured, dysfunction, codependency, entanglement, addiction, hopelessness, blame, and violence result. These results extend their poisonous effects terribly, horribly into ours and others lives; and great suffering results and continues until recovery can occur. We functionally recover and transform into our higher selves whenever and however we heal and develop.
