Triggered: PTSD and the Current Political Environment
Readers of my blog and books know that I was diagnosed with PTSD in 1990 and have been in recovery and active healing since that time. Looking back to all those years ago when I began the journey to seek joy and love, I had no idea that I would be supporting others in their PTSD journey nor did I know the blessings that I would encounter in my life as a result of my healing service. My story is one of victory.  I lead a full and engaging life, and since 1998 I am able to be with people who seek healing but are not recovered from their unique traumas, and hold the space while sharing my medicine with allowing, non-judgment, and kindness. Recently, I have observed that we seem to be having a harder time than usual...and it correlates with the political situation that we're encountering in my View Full Post
Consciousness, Light and Butter (or, How We are Poised to Create  the New World Right NOW)
Hello Sweet peeps. What a time it's been watching 2016 crawl to a close. So much loss, and yet so much to he grateful for. These last few days of the year I am truly trying to stand in honor of this bizarre year as the great teacher and revealer that it was. I wanted to share with you some thoughts in the last couple of weeks that has given me a lot of Hope. Some of what I'm about to say won't resonate or even make sense to some of you. But I hope that you will look below the words or the need for logical understanding to feel the the love and intention with which I offer it. We are in a window of Light right now. I am accustomed to being sensitive to light, both physical light (of the sun, bright lamps etc.) and Greater Consciousness Light. View Full Post
Collective Pain and Ancestral Healing ~ Our Pain is Our Prize
Recent events in my country have brought me back to an important remembrance: Pain is a great motivator. Every time I've experienced intense pain I've awakened to important realizations. You may have heard that "Pain is a message", as a reference to being guided by pain to know what we need to heal.  I have an important question to ask you. How will you USE your pain? This question may surprise you in this pain-denying, death-defying culture.  There are lots of pop- "spiritual" do-gooders who say we shouldn't dwell in conversation about pain.  There are even some who say we shouldn't even allow ourselves to feel it!  We're trained to RUN from pain, to bury it, suppress it, pretend it isn't there.  Let's think positive and maybe it will all go away.... But wait....what if our pain is the key to who we truly are, at a SOUL and View Full Post
A Ghost Story
"A Ghost Story" originally published in the 811 Magazine as my column "Wise Words from the Valley Shamama", (c) Licia Berry 2007 Here we are at that time of year again!  The kiddies are getting ready for Halloween, the days are shortening, and the veils between the worlds are thinning so that we are more able to feel the presence of ghosts. G-G-G-ghosts???? Yep, ghosts. I grew up in an extended family that relished the existence of non-physical beings and the possibility that they were interacting with us physical beings on a regular basis. My maternal grandparents lived in a beautiful, old, and very dark civil war era home on several rolling, wooded acres in North Carolina, and it wasn’t unusual to feel the presence of the history of battle on that land or to sense the presence of something we couldn’t see with our eyes. With great frequency during View Full Post
