Trusting My Wise Woman

Trusting My Wise Woman

Stirring in the tenuous

moment of possibility.

The day begins.

My time of hope –

What to do?

Where to begin

on this new day – this new dawn?

Shall I run? Shall I sing?

Shall I skip through my day,

filled with joy?

Time to move.

Only I can choose how to begin.

Only I can create the story of my day –

of my life.

Only I can fill it with laughter and love –

wonder and heart-stirring music.

Only I can choose my way forward

knowing that it is my journey home

to the truth of who I was born to be –

to the me my soul has always known.

To know my truth, I must trust

my wise woman whose voice

comes in whispers.

I need only stop, breathe

and listen and honour her words to me.

It is as simple as that.



About Authentic Vibrations

My life is about learning and personal growth. I was an educator in the public secondary system for over 33 years. I now work with women, individually and in small groups, using words and music, art and language to help them explore their individaul sense of self in ways with are authentically meaningful for each of them. I also facilitate discussions with educators at all stages of their involvement in the teaching profession to help each of us explore the meaning, value and potential of learning and teaching. It is my belief that, in working individually and in collective, we have the power to transform and evolve. In the power of the collectives which we create together is the power to create culture. As a musician, I believe that the arts have the power to change lives. Certification: CODE Model™ Coach WEL-Systems® Institute Affiliate Education: Ed.
