If you want to give birth to your true self, you are going to have to dig deep down into that body of yours and let your soul howl. Sometimes you have to take a leap of faith and trust that if you turn off your head, your feet will take you where you need to go.
“In many Shamanic Societies, if you came to a medicine person complaining of being disheartened, dispirited or depressed, they would ask one of four questions:

“Tree limbs spiral and flow out as they grow. And so do human limbs.
The spiral flow of fluid is the magic behind all growth.”

~Gabrielle Roth, (1941-2012)
“Faith does not need to push the river because faith is able to trust that there is a river. The river is flowing. We are in it.”
