Authentic transformations empower you to holistic alignment your 5-part identity ‘matrix’. Transformation of fear and doubt into love and trust is the foundation of this alignment. In this process core values and the connections within the matrix of body, mind, heart, soul and spirit are strengthened.
Journeys through watershed moments of trauma and joy are both opportunities for enlightenment and transformation. Emotional awareness in the presence of emotional pain can be transformative.
The more consciously engaged you are, the stronger the foundations and connections of this matrix can be. Living according to your authentic identity-narrative opens the door to a passionate exploration of life and the matrix that is you!
Emily Dickinson: time and eternity
my cocoon tightens, colours tease,
I’m feeling for the air
a dim capacity for wings
degrade the dress I wear
a power of butterfly must be
the aptitude to fly
meadows of majesty concedes
and easy sweeps of the sky
so I must baffle at the hint
and cipher at the sign
and make much blunder, if at last
I take the clew divine.
transformation of your gestalt
The gestalt of you includes mind, body, health, soul and spirit. In my blog posts and related reading reviews listed in The Reading Room, we delve into these attributes in more detail and from different perspectives. Empowering yourself would involve a diverse set of opportunities to grow within. Joy and compassion, creativity, mindfulness, philosophy, symbols and images, all offer opportunity for expanding your awareness and potential.
Transformation is not about just re-organizing the parts of your current collection of personal attributes. It is about changing the parts as well as the whole.
transformation brings the genuine you into reality
For marked changes to take place, all parts of the Gestalt need to make sense to you. They need to connect in a personally, meaningful way. We accept, reflect, and transform in an interconnected helix of experiences.
Building on active processes of acceptance and reflection, you begin realize and actualize, with greater self-confidence, what ‘matters’ to you. Core values become easier to identity and embrace in an empowering way.
In the A.R.T. Project blog posts, I bring different ideas, thoughts, strategies and skills to guide transitioning into a healthy, well-connected, genuine you. And not only will you become more interconnected within, but you also begin to recognize the inter
the 5 E’s or essentials of a healthy matrix
With intentional attitudes we transform the attributes of being human, using the ART processes creating the 5 E’s at the heart of a well-balanced, identity-narrative gestalt:
— ethical foundations
— clarity and connectedness
— balance of opposing forces
— fully engaged in lived experiences
— contentment achieved through right action and thoughts
transformation into le papillon …
Letting go and being vulnerable, open and exposed can ironically empowered you. You build a more confident voice and stance in the world.
The butterfly emerges as it is turned upside down from a twig or a leaf. It spins into a shiny chrysalis of a gold, metallic sheen.
Like the caterpillar transforming into a butterfly, you are given wings to fly.
…. is a radical transformation
identity change in the cocoon
chrysalis time of greatest transition to second cocoon
call to the chrysalis transformational
imagined image of self
destiny unknown to ego
buds are the soul to the uninitiated ego
you prepare to die once the soul is wrapped in the cocoon
the call to adventure
and trust inner guides, intuition and resources
the survival dance and the sacred dance
each of us has a survival dance and a sarcred dance
survival dance must come first
foundational component towards self-reliance
right livelihood said the Buddha
finding a patron for your art, soulcraft
for the wander — inward and outward
north, south, east, west
You know it because you feel born to do it
thank the opportunity to do this sacred dance
your soul wants what the world needs
gradually give up survival dance
and fully embrace the sacred dance of your soul
… with an intentional, flexible, creative attitude
As we navigate through different life experience, we are continually accepting, reflecting and transforming our knowledge, values, identity and voice. Strengthening is the first step. Then, with an awareness that we personally embody those values we take them with us into the world.
There, in our connections with others, we reflect and strategically adjust to find balance and cohesion, both intrinsically and extrinsically. By being actively involved in the process, we stay both conscious and authentic.
Being true to my values involves growth, adaption and transformation. It is a continually evolving process that shakes things up and forces us to reflect and adjust our habitual ways of existing.
