SoulCollage: Powerful Vulnerability

Self-Love Post: 11/10/11

Yesterday was a magnificent day. The women who joined me in the SoulCollage® mini retreat were an amazing configuration of powerful vulnerability. I am consistently reminded of the power that images and symbols have to move and guide us in our lives. I will share the SoulCollage® “I am one who” protocol with you through sharing my process of speaking from one of the cards I made yesterday.

Speaking from the Warrior:

I am one who fights the fight and knows the battle
I am one who is renewed by the sunset and takes time to watch the sunrise
I am one who is fierce and loving
I am one who battles to love myself
I am one who calls you to the battle

Speaking from the Tree:

I am one who is firmly planted in the ground
I am one who reaches into the sky
I am one who is a small part of something bigger
I am one who is mirrored in the water
I am one who offers shade to those in need
I am one who provides a home for many
I am one who changes with the seasons
I am one who knows how to stand and be still

Speaking from the Sun:

I am one who shines brightly
I am one who paints the sky and warms the earth
I am one who is beautiful
I am one who is loved by many
I am one who rises and falls
I am one who brings lovers together
I am one who helps you see
I am one who is reflected in the waters
I am one who is ever present even in the darkness

  1. I absolutely loved doing SoulCollage with you. It was just what I needed. It replenished me, renewed my energy and helped me reconnect with my emotions and feelings. I have been go go go with all of the projects that I’ve been working on that I barely make time for myself where I have a break from some type of work. I felt like my energy was cleansed and I was more open to the energy around me after during and after the SoulCollage mini retreat. “Powerful vulnerability” – that’s exactly what I was thinking. You created a safe environment that allowed for powerful vulnerability, which allowed us to explore our inner wisdom. It was perfect.

  2. Thanks Emelina, I am always pleasantly reminded of the power of these mini retreats. Your presense added to the perfection of the day!
