I Follow Myself

 

 

For nearly ten years, I took part in ceremonies, rituals and sought out healers. I followed many different spiritual paths until one day, I just stopped. Like the journey of The Alchemist, I came to realise that all these paths lead to the same place, that the treasure was under my feet the whole time.  That treasure was self-awareness.

 

Now, I listen to my inner elder, shamaness, wise woman.

Now, I take seriously the wisdom of my body feelings, even risking being wrong.

Now, I follow myself.

 

Dreaming Ourselves Awake Podcast- Episode 1

 

Welcome to the first ever Dreaming Ourselves Podcast. I am so excited to be sharing this podcast with you and very pleased to have Dr Bruce Scott as my first guest. Bruce is a writer, (Being Real: An Ongoing Decision, and Free The Children), a father, psychotherapist, teacher, storyteller and national workshop facilitator. He has worked among Native Americans and within African American, Hispanic and white communities. His extensive experience with families, children, school systems and a variety of relationships as well as large group and relationship facilitation skills, have taken him around the country as a lecturer, group facilitator, therapist wanderer and writer.

Bruce and I connected with each other five years ago and we have been emailing and speaking on the telephone every week since. I decided it was time we recorded some of those conversations to share with others who might also be wanting to live on this planet with awareness, respect and free from old beliefs.

In this first episode, Bruce shares his experience of being with Native America people and their way of being with others on this planet. He talks about respecting others no matter what they age, as well as respecting ourselves by being authentic and real. Bruce offers the idea that we seek out the “Third Way, when dealing with conflict or difficult people by bringing ourselves to others without the need to be heard or seen by them.
