For a long time I have focused who I didn't want to be. I am not much into labels or titles. The question "Who am I" brings to mind the scene from the movie "The Breakfast Club" where the Saturday morning detention crew gets an assignment to write an essay, I can't help but thinking about Micheal Anthony Hall with the pencil between his lip and his nose asking himself "who am I?" So who am I. I see myself as a flickering flame of light, constantly changing. If I choose I can have many titles, Wife, Mother, Daughter, Sister, Friend, Cousin, Aunt, Sister-in-law,Hairstylist, Shaman, Teacher, Artist, Writer, Business Owner, Entrepreneur, Philosopher,Fashion Consultant, Counselor, Partner, Chief, Maid, Mechanic, Tutor, Seamstress,Vet, Gardner, Angel, Devil, Tree Hugger, ATM Machine the list goes on and on. The point being, who I am is truly just and illusion it is the titles that we hang on to that can bog us down and continue to keep us stuck in an ego based perception. I much prefer to hang out in the possibilities of what is the soul to become? I would invite all of us for just a moment to set down the titles like an old back pack that we have carried for too many miles and take a long deep breath connecting with the highest part of ourself. How does that feel? Ahhh, that feels so expansive! Who am I? For this moment I am precious light of love. Who are you?
