Patricia R. Blumhagen is an Interfaith Minister, Registered Nurse, and Certified Nutritional Consultant, as well as a grower of organic herbs.
As an Interfaith Minister and Spiritual Coach, Patricia's concern is finding the best approach to assist others in connecting with their inner known and in birthing their hidden potentials. Patricia offers transformational rituals for celebrating personal growth and teaches holistic principals and lectures on healing herbs.
Patricia has been on a spiritual journey for many years and has experienced the pitfalls within the changes of life. Patricia lived 21 years as a catholic nun and outgrew the conditioning and expanded the word, "vocation." Leaving the convent created a loss of identity. No longer was she a nun and the question about her real identity began to dominate her consciousness. Patricia's poetry answers the question, "What is the purpose and meaning of life"? Why are we here?
This journey began the search to uncover the hidden meaning of her life. Here the tearing away of her false persona disappeared as each mask was removed. Patricia began to discover the deep emotions that had been buried for years. As she searched for words to name each emotion, the words set her free. Each letting to become free. Free at last "I climbed the mountain alone to face the God within" The words set her free!
'THE DEPTHS OF WINTER'
There were many times during Patricia's spiritual journey that her direction was uncertain and Patricia, would call out into the night, "is there anyone there?" The tiny voice inside kept calling and slowly, Patrica began to listen. There was no way of turning back. Confronting the fear and lost identity and grieving for what was no more, is held within each poem.
Letting go was Patricia's medicine to heal the emotional pain. The Hero's journey of Becoming, lead Patricia to The inner writer. Here, Patricia began to realize, that she had denied this writer any relationship of becoming friends. Once this awareness became a reality, the transformational poems unfolded and she began to write the Winter's Mystery-Time To Go Within Spiritual Journeying.
I found the process of transformation a tearing apart of all I had known. In return I obtained wholeness. Some fruits of my labor are in the present collection of poems in Winters Mystery.
