KC: Why did you decide to participate in this project?
TW: I participated in this project for a few reasons: 1) I was not able to visit my therapist at the time due to a restructuring of the program which offered the therapy sessions and because of the distance it was away from my home and place of employment at the time AND 2) I felt a need to receive spiritual counseling to assist me in the growth I'd cultivated up until that point. In other words, I felt like I was at a crossroads, a plateau which mandated I get the assistance of a guru or a mentor to assist me in moving forward, to grow to the next levels.
KC: What were your goals or intentions for these sessions?
TW: To get more grounded. To take care of myself better, as far as taking care of my personal needs, my health & my well being. I'd created a habit of not taking care of my appointments, bills & responsibilities. To handle situations that present themselves in my life in an efficient way for myself, to stop shrinking myself for the sake of others, to be my full, complete, honest and genuine self, vulnerable, open and real! To speak my truth, regardless of whether people like it or not.
KC: Have your goals or intentions changed? Why or how so?
TW: I've added new goals and intentions, because I've grown through this process of taking on the work you have suggested to me during our spiritual sessions. I've changed, so I am more aware than ever of my wants, needs & desires, something I was not able to express before beginning this project.
KC: If you could tell a stranger what happens in these sessions, how would you describe it?
TW: As a fun, practical, honest way of seeing yourself and how you can move forward in your life in the ways you truly desire to experience.
KC: At any point have you wanted to discontinue working together? If so, what kept you committed? If not, why?
TW: Yes, of course. This is because I was seeing my faults and I was tempted to convince myself that there is no way that I could overcome them. In the end, I knew better. I can conquer anything!
KC: What have been some of your greatest challenges in the months we have been working together?
TW: Being prompt and on time to our Skype sessions, doing the homework that I agreed to do with you and/or at a timely manner and/or when I said and/or promised you I would, being honest with myself and you about who I am, what I want, need and desire as well as facing my demons.
KC: What technique, homework assignment, or energy session stands out to you the most?
TW: The grounding meditation you taught me with the purple rain and cloud, the intuitive scheduling and making appointments technique and the end of call energy blasts meditations you do when ending most sessions.
KC: What changes have you made since we have been working together that you can attribute to this project?
TW: I do more of the shit I need to do in my life, such as my chores, my tasks, my responsibilities. I now know that I'm capable of living a life free of supportive housing, gov't rent assistance and social services! I know that I'm a healer, with gifts in astrology, numerology, intuitive & relationship coaching, energy & sexual healing & guitar performance! I was able to quit my job which was stressing me out, transition a romantic relationship into a friendship & take on clients as an entrepreneur & freelancer.
KC: What impact has this experience had on the way you think about yourself and the world around you?
TW: I know that I am a whole person now, that my diagnosis does not disenfranchise me or hinder me from fulfilling my potential, that I have a purpose and mission I can absolutely take on in this lifetime.
I have more confidence and faith in myself, more understanding of who and what I am. I walk taller and I trust the situations I find myself in to be all right. I don't feel anymore like the world will destroy me, but that I am here to learn from all the circumstances I find myself in, that there's a way out of them ALL, that life is a game I'm fully capable of winning at!
KC: What do you feel the value of this project is?
TW: Priceless value. It's a way of empowering people who feel so disempowered, disenfranchised& disabled to know that we are quite the opposite with the proper guidance, support, tools and knowledge! We need to learn how to get outta the place we're in now!
KC: How do you feel about the 6 month time limit?
TW: I think it's great - it's just enough time to send us off empowered, with a new set of effective tools to deal with the world and show up ready to take on whatever comes our way with a new understanding that we are not forever broken, we are healing now.
KC: How will you move forward when our time together has come to an end?
TW: I have new mentors now, friends and lovers. I have a support system I've begun to plug into now. I've also begun to assist others a bit more along their journeys. I'm doing what I set out to do, be made ready to assist others.
KC: Who would you recommend this experience to?
TW: Folks who feel they have the potential to grow and be more than what their doctors, psychiatrists, psychologists, therapists, family, friends, colleagues and/or loved ones feel they can, those who have tried and tried many ways to move forward but continued to hit their heads against a wall, folks with an unquenchable desire to thrive beyond the realms of their social services environment, supportive housing, single room occupancy, life long monthly and weekly therapy & psychiatrist appointments, doctors visits and mental health support groups. Those who are tired of feeling suicidal or depressed, who long to really live their life again!
