"When my internal and external landscape told me it was time to up the ante, double down on my divine dharma, and follow direction straight into the heart of a mindbending paradox - I found myself knocking on Chela's door. I was weary, a bit ragged and cautious. There were caveats, mythic tests and fail safes that she essentially sailed through. Then, I promptly sank into a chair across from her (metaphorically), in exhaustion, and spelled it out in the plainest speak I could.
Chela then did what she does, what she continues to do for me, which is blow my fucking hair back.
This woman gets it. I mean, down to the bone marrow, don't pass Go and skip the spiritual bypass bullshit, she GETS it. More, she can hold it. She met all of what I am working with - which as the leader of an underground social change movement that is working in and from the feminine in a culture ill equipped to face and bioremediate the feminine wound in all its manifestations, there is a lot going on here. She is grounded and clear, fierce and funny, spot on in her metaphors, unrelenting in her calls to accountability and unflagging in her support.
I've been in recovery for over 30 years - what I call soul recovery. I do the work because it's mine to do, because I want to, because it's joyful as well as my responsibility. Yet working with Chela has brought a new layer to this work that I'm not certain I've experienced before - a living divine intermediary who I'm pretty certain has got my back all the way to the end.
If you want to do a caliber of work that will pivot you both inward and toward your future; if you want to show the fuck up for what you came here to do and be (be and do, it's the same really) then this is your woman. Be prepared for it to disrupt what you think to surface what your soul or being needs.
We need to be prepared for these times, because these are the times we are alive in. That is no small task. I'm fairly certain that Chela has the bat phone of the people who are rising to the demands of these times, and then some."
