As a Medicine Woman
I have learned through
my walk on Mother Earth
that my source is a Wounded Healer.
I lead by example,
as I reach in my wounds
and pull out the core of
pain inside to allow ultimate healing.
Once I saw a beautiful video
describing the Wounded Healer
just as it equated to the meaning of
a Peer Specialist as well which I am also.
Peer Specialist is a mental health consumer
who uses their experience and training
to help empower other mental health consumers
to focus on their recovery journey as well.
Again leading by example,
I see the beauty of using
experiences that normally would be
devastating and transforming them to healing.
Great Creator’s power to give beauty for ashes
feels very relative to me as I step out of
the ashes of the Phoenix Soul I have and
transform into something more priceless.
A Child of God.
