I went to see writer, Michelle Adam, tonight as she read from her book, Child of Duende: A Journey of the Spirit and taught a workshop on how to write from the heart. Aside from the fact that she sounds like a fascinating woman who has led an inspired life as a dancer and writer, she shared an exercise with us tonight on exploring the mystery of our soul’s story.

I was taken on a fantasmical journey as she read to us from her novel about an 8 year old girl named Duende, vines that bleed human blood and spirit guides, getting lost in the storytelling that I love so much. We were then encouraged to write with the help of Michelle’s guided imagery and prompts. This is what I came up with:

  1. Where was your soul born? Close your eyes and imagine the place, then write about it, in complete sentences or just words. I saw a teenager’s room. My room when I was a teenager. There was a record player on the dresser, posters on the wall and frilly, girly, bedding. (I bet I was the only girl in tha ‘hood with bedding for each season).

  2. What do I feel? The feelings I felt were freedom, happiness, security, wonder, adventurous and hopeful. I was alone, but totally OK with it. Not at all lonely but secure. I felt free, as if I can do anything I want. The window was open and the weather was pleasant.

  3. What do I hear? I hear my voice singing and my fingers snapping to the sound of a record playing.

  4. What do I smell? I smell cardboard (this was a little strange- but that was what I perceived that I smelled).

  5. What do I look like? I do not have a body. I am a ray of light. I look like sound would look if it looked like anything.

  6. How do I move? I am pulsing red light, like the light on an ol’ skool Equalizer that pulses according to the beat of the music. I soon realize that I am the music, it is not separate from me.

  7. What do I long for? What is my calling? To join with other light/sound beings and to vibrate together.                                                                                                                           Whoa! I was not expecting any of that! The questions and answers unfolded over approximately 30-40 minutes. I enjoyed this exercise and am looking forward to exploring deeper the experience of writing my soul story. Stay tuned.
