Inspiration to Manifest
Poem by Cari Greywolf Rowan, participant in Kori Tolbert’s ‘Waters of Life’ Continuum Virtual Series
Over a six week series beginning with Emilie's Peace Prayer, dropping deep into the dissolve with lunars, then beginning to stir with micromovements, engaging intentionally with our fluid intelligence, in body and earth, moving through the Primordial Anatomy, and finding our fluid strength to rise up to standing together, a call to ourselves and humanity on the planet, we called, listened, and moved.
After the last day of class one of the participants, Cari Greywolf Rowan shared this poem with me. This was shared with Kori on May 21, 2020. I asked Cari if I could share it with the CTA media project after she shared with me and she said she would be honored and happy to.
INSPIRATION TO MANIFESTATION
Inspiration to manifestation.
Allowing the magnetic core of the planet to carry me to her bosom
Landing at her core,
The place where mama earth holds me in a sweet embrace
To offer sustenance and hope to this weary body-mind-soul
I plead for forgiveness~
Forgive us for the our rapacious greed and callous disregard.
I swim in her tears, as our fluid bodies merge momentarily.
The warmth of her embrace offers me succour and sanity.
As I begin the slow merging,
I experience her fluids within me.
I feel her bones within mine.
I rise patiently,
Becoming more fully human
with each dive and each rising,
embodying more of mama earth,
more heart, more balance, more love.
I emerge renewed, refreshed, remodeled.
The clarity of my cleansed fluid systems moves me to reach for light, and love, andlife
Tenderly, I embrace and then release my fears and doubts.
If only for this moment I feel my sacred union.
