I love how my friend Michi has come into her own authentic expression of being and is now ready to share it with all of us.
Check out her beautiful new website.
Me encantan los espacios liminales.
I’d been Ayahuasca curious since 2013.
I readied myself to take the journey to hang out with the beautiful Shipibo people in the deep Amazon bush for 3 weeks. The trip was going to be costly in many ways; and yet I was prepared to lose my mind, career, family, home… everything… to connect to something beyond the artfulness of man… beyond all of the manmade bullshit I was drowning in… To reconnect… To remember… To refresh, renew and re-energize... To quicken alive once more.
Me encantan los hongos, la seta.
The H, the sideways capital letter I.
The liminal space.
I can usually feel a big life change welling up and I get antsy. I begin to anticipate it , in joy and fear, like the first day of kindergarten. I hear it rumbling like thunder in the distance. And I start running away trying to escape the natural flow of life through me, as me. Everything is going to change and change is constant. I am either growing and thriving or I’m stuck and dying. Black and white. There’s no in-between here.
The days rolled into weeks; he weeks into months and the months into years. Life whispered: “No. You’re not going to Perú.”
Four years later, I met Michelle Eriksen. I kept my distance. What can I say? I am a wild living being, an untamed spirit on fire. Like the little prince’s fox, I must first be tamed. I heard Michelle had returned from an Ayahuasca trip in the forest, my heart skipped a beat and I made a date to meet her. And that has made all the difference.
Michi shares a safe space full of integrity, love and wisdom along with a delicious selection of hot tea. She listens patiently with an open heart without judgement. She shares wisdom gained from her own direct experiences, insights and innerstanding. Through Michi’s guidance and patience, I’ve grown more and more into who I am in truth. She reflects a conscious awareness where I can quickly access new perspectives and courageously embrace more and more of my true being.
In truth, what Michi has shared with me is loving friendship with the courage to connect. I can speak about anything with her and I know I will have a brilliant compassionate witness ready to show me the next step and reminding me to forgive and remember. Thank you Michi for sharing a safe space where I can be me. I am grateful for your light on my journey.
I love Michi and I know you will too.
