The goal that we set was to support the integration of my whole self: mind, body, and heart. And we have accomplished that. This integration began in the first session, when I was able to locate myself in my body - my belly. And it was from this point that I began to own my own integrity, boundaries, feelings, needs.
I began to understand my own sense of feminine in terms of my own boundaries, the shape I give my energy (circular), the grounding and shielding I can do with my energy, and the positive effect I can have on people.
Each session, we peeled back another layer - because I was totally unaware that integration was a thing. I feel like I have awakened to the reality and possibility of my own integrated Self - I am just at the point of seeing her emerge - and she is me!
And so, I didn’t know I wasn’t integrated. I wasn’t remotely aware of my body; I discovered how much I have supressed my emotions. I didn’t realize that I could communicate and interact with others in a way that not only supports who I am, but supports where others are coming from as well. I am learning to live into my own truth and to share that part of me with others.
Cheryl has helped me realized that I do have a lot of feminine power, I do have strength and choice. I discovered that my energy, my strength, doesn't have to be reactive (hard-edged), but can be proactive and purposeful (softer) and it is grounded in my round belly. So, everything has changed for me.
Taking this coaching with Cheryl has been life changing. I couldn’t have done this and come so far without Cheryl’s gentle, insightful guidance.
