In the first episode of, “Shaman Pornstar” (Perspective) our gregarious host, WillowJon discusses what is was like growing up feeling, somewhat like one of the “X-Men,” a mutant, if you will with secret powers, due to being born with the cloudy white covering of a cataract in his left pupil. He talks about the process of seeing this, at first, as a immutable curse, but over time how it has deepened his ever evolving compassion, grace, and unconditional love for his body, mind, and spirit and all of humanity.
What is the connection between our physical waking world and our symbolic dreaming world? Well there are many, symbols in the physical world such as; animals, oceans, crucifixes, circles, triangles, numbers ,and body parts, that serve as a connection or conversation about something deeper we are tying to understand. Take a walk down into the basement of your unconsciousness to see what fears, or desires are there and what they are trying to communicate with you. Before you close your eyes at night, ask yourself what you would like to learn more about and then allow yourself to be taken into a magical world of interrelated symbols, meaningful metaphors, and wild imaginations. Welcome to the dream world. Time for some fun!
Throughout my life I’m constantly learning and re-learning how I can best be of, “Service” to the world, to my friends and family and to myself. It seems over and over I keep coming to the same conclusion, “Follow Joy!” “Play Often,” “Dream Big,” “Stretch, Exercise, and Meditate,” “Activate, Challenge, and Silence The Mind,” ” Stoke the Fires of My Imagination,” “Get Into Nature,” “Play Music,” “Move My Body and DANCE,” “Laugh LOUD, PROUD, and OFTEN!” and, “Continue to Become Lost in the Wonder and the Glory OF THE Moment!” Blessings to all my Light Workers out there floating in the vastness of the Unknown! How the Darkness provides us such a wonderful Opportunity to Become the Brightest beacons of LIGHT we can for each other Like friendly Fish Chasing each Other in an infinite tank of possibility.
Through out my life I’ve dealt with my overactive imagination, my up and down personality, impulsiveness, addictions, curiosities about death and more by trying to be as healthy as I could in my mind, body, and spirit and get out my negative energies with music, exercise, meditation, laughter, reading, writing, nature and dreams.
I’ve been called, “Crazy” most of my life partly due to my zany, wild, louder than life personality and I usually took this comment in stride and almost as a, “compliment” as a creative writer, musician, and traveling gypsy I was attracted to people who were also so called damaged goods. I’ve always been attracted to the saying, “Are we an sane people adjusting to an insane society, or insane people adjusting to a sane society?”
The question begets much thought. I recently heard a comment by social media mogul Mike Majlak who said something like, “There is a 100% connection between mental illness and drug addiction.” I’m working on coming to more self-understanding, forgiveness, and change in perspective about my so called, “Mental Illness” Thanks so much for watching and supporting WillowJonT.V. I love you all!
Balancing my mind, body, and spirit has been quiet the adventure during this life time. I’ve always strayed away from the path of big pharma because of my attitudes and beliefs about, “The System,” But I’m expanding my perspectives to include, (all that is needed to give myself the best possible chance of living a happy life.)
I am currently in therapy and it is going really well. I’ve always thought that I didn’t want to seek help because I would loose my manic personalities or my wild lows that connected me to my art, music, and dreams, but it seems I may be able to live a life without so much pain and confusion and still be creative and full of humor. I’m so excited to bring my best self to the table from now on in life. A huge thank you to everyone at Mental Heath Partners for all the support, advice, and medical attention. I thank you from the top of my beautifully beating heart.
