A Jung illustration I stumbled on without knowing it was signaling the beginning

This is an embroidery/photography/words work-in-progress.
A recount of a  journey through the alchemical processes of healing : through the darkness toward the light, and back again, to life.
There is a field, wanting to bloom…

Sacrum departure

A title Returning Home originally came to me when I literally returned home to be a full-time caregiver at an earlier time in life. Years down the line, I realized those two words ringing in my ears actually meant something like returning to the origin, to source, to oneness.

As it turned out, ignited by Kundalini: the serpent fire, the healing nature force awakens and uncoils through the spine. The process seems almighty and all-knowing : it fiercely pushes the spiritually closed to finally walk their true path, and as it puts us back to balance, it heals our energies and bodies. 

This is a radical shattering of our world, a shift from the material linear thinking to the spiraling world of energy that will guide us much further than who we thought we were.. 

Sacrum departure I

The excruciating pain, the emotional roller-coaster ride, the destruction of all things, the energetic and physical symptoms, the psychic rewiring, the denial, the craziness and sickness, the wonderment, the karmic lessons, the miracles… and finally a new level of peace and transcendence are all part of this inevitable transformation arising from a sudden wake up call at some point in our lives.  A call for a heart expansion.

Although we definitely need a framework to navigate this bewildering transition, what I’m envisioning here is another kind of testimonial,  to attest of this phenomenon with more contemplation and less analysis. Or maybe some. But how could we meaningfully tackle this. Could we ever bring justice to such profound experiences, or even share them. Shall we stay silent.. Throughout the years I’ve kept record of this process with images and some writing. They are yet scattered from being born inside the loop, but I will let it grow from there, as the path unfolds.

Nowadays we are being challenged to anchor new ways of relating. But it is an unveiling which starts within. And from inheriting suffering, we can turn it around and reflect on how we function as multi-sentient e-motional beings. We are being pushed in this direction, as we allow the transformational path brought upon us.
