C2E has a number of Community Events on a monthly basis that bring a collection of tools that, if they resonate with us, will become part of our personal practice of personal self-care in body, mind, and spirit. A personal practice of working through our issues, whether physical, spiritual or mental, is how we can begin to experience true transformation. People tend to be so uplifted, excited, and on fire during a workshop, retreat, or transformational event, but also often falling very quickly into familiar patterns of dysfunction. WHY? Because a personal practice that is consistent is not established. Without this personal practice, that is organic, ever changing, and deeply intimate, there’s always going to be patterns that no longer serve us repeating themselves over and over again in our lives.
Here are a couple of excerpts from C2E Tribe Coaches, Chef MO and Mayra McCullough, to share how they have adopted SoulCollage’s method, our Creative Expression series for this quarter with the beautiful, passionate, and excellent Chantel Zimmerman. Our objective is to inspire you to try new things that might connect with you in ways you can’t even imagine. Open your heart, and allow it to guide as you feel drawn.
Chef MO’s Experience w/ SoulCollage: (Thank you for sharing Beautiful!)
I so enjoyed my SoulCollage Card workshop with Chantel Zimmerman. I created 1 card and started 2 more the night of the class, went home after class and finished the other 2. You can see my first three cards in the top row of this montage.
Several days later I felt the inspiration come alive in me to create more. I think I did 8 cards that night, you can see some of those in the middle row, I took the time to sit with these cards for several days just enjoying looking at them , holding them and listening, then spent the next several days writing and cataloging them.
I allowed myself another card session the following week and some of those creations are in the bottom row of the montage. This process has opened something deep and wide within me that wants to come out play and expand. I would heartily recommend this Soul Collage work to anyone who is curious about accessing their creativity and intuition.
Mayra McCullough’s Experience w/ SoulCollage:
I was so intrigued by this process where Chantel took us to an intuitive journey of creating images that will speak to US! The concept of having my personalized deck of cards was driving me with excitement and curiosity. I was so eager to see what my soul had to tell me today! It took many of Chantel loving prompts to keep my mind off and my instinct on. Connecting to how your body responds with pure instinct is one of the key lessons for me here. The process was so peaceful, and joyful, specially since I didn’t get to figure anything out, just trust my Essence (or Higher Self) to pick, choose, glue and paste. It would take a couple of chapters to break down the messages these cards have given me, but in summary, they are filled with new messages every time I incorporate them to my daily SOS (Self Optimization Sanctuary) practice. They speak to me about taming the wild, how to achieve clarity, about my ability to live the dream in confidence. They speak to my heart because they come from my heart! So looking forward to finishing my deck of 12 by the end of June!
