“The creative process is not like a situation where you get struck by a single lightning bolt. You have ongoing discoveries, and there’s ongoing creative revelations. Yes, it’s really helpful to be marching toward a specific destination, but, along the way, you must allow yourself room for your ideas to blossom, take root, and grow.”

Carlton Cuse (b. 1959, writer, producer, and actor best known as one of the show runners/executive producers of the television series, “Lost”)

Years ago, I was a young woman, married, a mother, and a working professional, who tried her best to keep up with all that I was living.  I wasn’t particularly happy, although being a mother made me feel extremely blessed.

I wasn’t happy in my marriage.  I didn’t marry well by waiting for my equal, and my sadness became very evident after I had my first child.  I couldn’t ignore the suffering I felt through two years of deep postpartum depression.  And at that time during the late 1980s it wasn’t acceptable to talk about such issues.

So, the only thing I could do was to wrapped up my baby and me, get outside, and keep walking.  Essentially, I was literally and figuratively putting one foot in front of the other to move forward.

After two years of being a stay-at-home mom I decided to look for a job in the arts, and landed a job as a receptionist and then as outreach marketing assistant, working for a prestigious off-Broadway theater company.

At that organization I met some very interesting people, one of which was a woman by the name of Patricia.  She was a brilliant, straight and sincere as an arrow, and a seeker of spiritual truth.  I didn’t get her really at the time.  But, through her generosity Patricia pointed me to seek the help of a shaman, Christina.  That journey which was the start of the most amazing quest of my life.

Not only have I practiced shamanism for 25+ plus years.  I reconnected back to Christianity, my spiritual and psychic gifts.

It took some time, but I began to feel the great support of The Great Spirit and Spiritual Guardianship.  I blossomed into wholeness and followed the paths to happiness and to fuller spiritual and emotional development.

Follow the breadcrumbs, sojourners, out of any pain, numbness, or busyness into the deeper realms of soul enlightenment.

Faithfully Yours, Tonya
