Healer

Healer, she said, please take away my grief.
I cannot, he replied.
It is grief that reminds us of our humanity.

Healer, please remove my sadness.
I cannot.
It is the valleys that give rise to the mountains.

Healer, please chase away my fear.
I cannot.
It is fear that enables us to cultivate faith. 

Healer, please eradicate my anger.
I cannot.
It is anger that we must learn to turn into compassion.

Healer, please cure my pain.
I cannot.
It is pain that remind us of the joy of being alive.

Healer, if you cannot do any of these, what can you do?
I can hold space, 
I can support,
I can inspire, 
I can empower you to become your own healer.

Spirit of Rapé

There is no pride nor a sense of superiority 
No guilt nor shame
The heart opens
No happiness nor sadness 
No past nor future 
Just simple joy

Iemanjá

A drop of water;
seas within,
oceans without.
She rises.

Floresta; a walk in the forest

Two trees; one still adolescent, the other ancient.
I place my palm, caressing the youngling’s bark;
so smooth, yet a little cold.

Invocation to the Universal Creative Force

Within me rests a treasure trove,
ever-pulsing in symphony with my heart.
Concealed and guarded by resistance,
it trembles with volcanic vigor.
