Not separated / No separada

Anne´s favourite place in the woods

CASTELLANO: Ayer en nuestro grupo de practicas IFS (Internal Family Systems; Sistemas de la Familia Interna) se expresó una parte mía con mucha alegría:

Es una parte que sale cuando la voz racional, lógica, cognitiva le deja espacio y deja de ser protagonista…así se hace ver una parte muy delicada que trae una luz azul, una llama interior que representa confianza en la vida, la voz del alma, una voz que intuye, que sabe de ciclos naturales, que no tiene miedo ni de la muerte ni de la oscuridad, una voz de transformación…

Estoy leyendo un libro de Ursula Seghezzi, “Im Land der Seele”, traducido como “En el País del Alma”. Los cuentos de los hermanos Grimm reciben otra mirada y vuelven a tener vida. Me como si un mensaje muy importante me llega de ellos. Es un mensaje que me trae confianza que puedo sostener los cambios y que puedo aprovechar la inestabilidad, la ruptura, la crisis, el no-saber, la incertidumbre para crecer. El mensaje es tan sutil como esta llama azul.

Hace algunos días volví de Bonn y Colonia donde visité amigas y amigos. Algunas personas son conocidas desde hace mucho tiempo y otras que conozco desde hace poco. Me une nuestra calidad de conexión, la manera que nos escuchemos. La presencia de la otra persona acompaña y facilita que me entiendo a mi y que puedo tomar decisiones de manera asertiva, ser el capitán de mi barco, bien integrada en mi red de vínculos y relaciones sociales, parte del tejido. Hay un sentir de interdependencia, un estado de “interbeing” (Charles Eisenstein- ), de “yo soy porque estoy unida a ti”. Me relajo!! Que alivio de formar parte, un hilo fino en la tela y a la vez influyendo y sosteniendo.


It only takes a reminder to breathe, a moment to be still, and just like that, something in me settles, softens, makes space for imperfection.

The harsh voice of judgment drops to a whisper and I remember again that life isn’t a relay race; that we will all cross the finish line; that waking up to life is what we were born for.

As many times as I forget, catch myself charging forward without even knowing where I’m going, that many times I can make the choice to stop, to breathe, and be, and walk slowly into the mystery.

ENGLISH: Yesterday in our small group of IFS practitioners a part of me expressed itself with a lot of joy.

It´s a part that appears when my rational, logic thinking, making sense part steps aside and stops being the protagonist and when that part steps away from behind the steering wheel. So this other part becomes visible and tangible. It´s a delicate part that cares for an inner flame, a subtle blue light, that is connected to life, that trusts in life cycles, that is not afraid of darkness nor death, that knows about becoming and fading, a voice of transformation.

I was given a book by a friend written by Ursula Seghezzi, “Im Land der Seele”, “In the Land of the Soul”. She has rewritten Grimm´s fairytales in a way that bring them back to life for me. They touch me, move me…with a message that tells me that I´m capable of sustaining change, crisis, rupture, not-knowing and grow with them. The message is as subtle as the blue flame.

Some days ago I visited friends in Bonn and Cologne. Some I know for years, others I met recently. What unites me is the quality of connection and the way we listen to each other. The presence of the other person holds me and helps me to understand myself and allows me to take decisions in an assertive way. I am the captain of my ship and at the same time part of a bigger network. I feel interdependent, inter being (Charles Eisenstein- ), not just thinking it. “I am because I am with you”. I relax into being a tiny thread in the cloth and at the same time making a difference.
