"So often we try to alter circumstances to suit
ourselves, instead of letting them alter us, which
is what they are meant to do" Mother Maribel
Change is one of the aspects in life I cherish the
most. I am talking about deep transformational
change. Freeing change. It's a good thing because
transformation seems to be my power totem.
In the shamanic traditions there is the belief that
the shaman's power/gift walks with him/her.
Wherever they go that power goes and whatever
comes in contact with it is effected by it. This might
be one of the reasons the shaman was often feared as
well as revered. I bring this up as a context, I am
certainly not about to claim to be a shaman. But,
I do have a power that walks with me, and it is
I can't tell you how many jobs or galleries I have
had where the place has been reconstructed or
closed down during or right after my employment
or representation. Once the effect has taken place
it is as if the Universe no longer needs me there
and I am moved on.
Let's just say I know a thing or two about change.
Many people fear change, they may want to
change their situation but they don't like real
change. But what they don't realize is that we
need our external mirrors. This is a dream
remember? So the external is the internal.
Change the internal, the external changes itself.
Don't change the internal, the external will work
its' darndest to wake you up.
I know that our internal workings can be one of
our biggest mysteries. How do we access that
mystery so we can change? One way is through
interpretation of the living dream. If something
transpires that disturbs you, instead of going into
a reactive mode, sit down and write the situation
down. Now treat it as you might a dream you had
last night. Everything in a dream is you and so you
start with the first component of the dream and say
"I am the...whatever"...and then describe the qualities
of the component, realizing those qualities are
describing some aspect of your inner world.
I have been consistently amazed by the revealing
and liberating results of this exercise.
