In my early studies, Chiron being symbolized as the “wounded healer” I was lead to think it was something to actually heal within .
Because Chiron wasn't discovered until 1977, and I could not find it relating to older civilizations that predated Greek mythology, I didn't give it to much though as I focused upon other areas of interest. .
However, around the age of 45, Chiron spoke to me again. I revisited it to discover, how accurate it was in my life's experiences. It wasn't until I was 50, it appeared with a bang again. Creating and experiencing major shifts in my life, I focused upon my journey, to witch, Chiron was highlighting the way and all I could do was surrender. and give thanks for all the work I had done before and allow the radical and transformation to take place. I was willing to continue to do my work and be fearless for whatever was necessary to fulfill my agreement of which I realize I am bound by because I am worth.
Now I've arrived just past it's second rotation within my journey here, and have realized, its not something to heal, rather to embrace, transform and expand through Sankofa about myself.
To embrace the mixture of being human and spirit. I am here to be the best at my independance and share with others the beautiy of being an individual within partnerships. Being comfortable with your lane without need to compete, feel left out nor limited by self or other.
Chiron has assisted me in being aware of and governing one's personal right to be sensitive to energies and motions. Every one is different, all energies work on different modes, needs and frequencies. When we are unaware of this, primal nature takes over and fight or flight kicks in. When we are aware, we are able to identify our individual sources and create harmonious exchanges with mutual respect, honor, compassion and support for one another. When a person need boundaries, its for them, it isn't personal. It's only personal if you don't allow yourself to have boundaries. If this doesn't work within the partnership, changes and letting go with inner peace and acceptance can be achieved.
Via doing my work, I have developed and manifested "healing" via acceptance and focusing upon what is for me. I am gifted with expansion of my mind and heart as I shared with others who are in harmony with my phases. This journey has been so liberating for myself and those who have been willing to take the journey with me. Even those who were unwilling are amongst my greatest blessings, for which I am very grateful for experiencing. I trust they are free and living an authentic life of their heart's desires.
