Time To Go Within
“Patricia Blumhagen is a gifted healer in the Wise
Woman tradition. In Winter’s Mystery she shares some
of her methods and fruits of her own inner healing.

darkness--an offering of inspiration and hope.”

I I Interfaith Minister, Registered Nurse, and Certified Nutritional Consultant, as well as a grower of organic herbs.
As an Interfaith Minister and Spiritual Coach, my concern is finding the best approach to assist others in connecting with their souls and in birthing their hidden potentials. I offer tramsformational rituals for celebrating personal growth.
I have been on a spiritual journey for many years and have experienced the pitfalls within the changes of life.
I lived 21 years as a catholic nun and out grew the conditioning and expanded the word, "vocation".
Leaving the convent created a lost of identity. No longer was I a nun and the question, "who was I"? "What is the purpose and meaning of my life"?
This journey began the search for purpose and meaning.
Here the tearing away of my false persona, as each mask was removed. I began to discover the deep emotions that had been buried for years.
As I searched for words to name the emotion the words set me free. Each poem set in motion the feelings I had buried for years.
Free at last I climbed the mountain alone to face the God within.The words set me free!
'THE DEPTHS OF WINTER'
There were many times during my spiritual journey that my direction was uncertain and I would call out into the night, "is there anyone there?"
The tiny voice inside kept calling and slowly, I began to listen. I had to confront and grieve for what was no more.
Letting go was my medicine to heal the emotional pain. The Hero's journey of becoming lead me to my inner writer. I began to realize, that I had denied this writer any relationship of becoming friends.
Once this awareness became a reality, the transformational poems unfolded and I began to write my book:Winter's Mystery-Time To Go Within:Spiritual Journeying.
I found the process of transformation a tearing apart of all I had known.
My search to transform the emotional pain led me towards wholeness.
Some fruits of my labor are in the present collection of poems in my book.
