Follow the Lead.

Jill Cooper

Of course, I had to learn to support what I wanted rather than doubting it, but that’s exactly the point. Inner guidance calls us forward to learn, to grow, to experience and to create – the very essence of fulfillment. Learning to say Yes to my inner guidance, and then empowering myself to follow it, has been essential to my evolution.

Living at the Center of Yes and No.

Jill Cooper

What trips a lot of people up is thinking, mistakenly, that honoring themselves means switching from putting other people first to putting themselves first, which they resist because it seems selfish. The open-hearted No arises from an understanding that trying to designate who or what is “more important” makes no sense in a universe wherein we are all inherently and equally worthy.

The Open-Hearted No.

Jill Cooper

The firm “No” to limiting, fearful or abusive thoughts, held with an open heart, is a pivotal awakening point. It allows us to pause and become fully aware of how damaging those habitual thoughts really are, and to realize that we are worthy of being treated far, far better than that. We are worthy of our own respect, compassion and support.

Toothpicks in Avocado Pits.

Jill Cooper

I can still see it, the clear café glass sitting on the butcher block counter in our kitchen: balanced on the rim of the glass, suspended in mid-air. I would always come closer.

Jill Cooper

Falling in love with my Mum at the age of 56 was not part of my game plan. We had never been close. I grew up hearing, ‘You’re just like your father!’—the memory still a divisive wedge among many separating Mum and I. For eight years, I chose to have no contact with her.

A Most Grateful Yes.

Jill Cooper

It should have been a forty-five minute mid-afternoon bus ride. Heading out of Bogotá’s El Centro, the bus filled, emptied, and filled again with silent Colombianos dressed in black and brown, many wearing ruanas and black felt hats. I was the standout, the Norte Americano, and I felt my difference acutely each time I braced myself against the cracked window and hugged the edge of my seat as the bus lurched down potholed roads

Bleeding Out Unicorns.

Jill Cooper

I watch her teeter precariously on the periphery of my past and the person I am becoming now. She’s clothed in camo so no one can see her, tucking herself away into the deep wilderness of my psyche.

Yes...

Yes…

Is the splash of berry through softened green, 

And, the hanging wisps of Wisteria trees.

It is the glistening of the morning dew, 

That adorns the earth in brilliant jewel.

The Well.

Jill Cooper

Today it’s, oh, so different! As I gaze into the dark

of unbounded potential – the contrast is so sharp.

I’m energized and excited by the power of the deep

Yes.

Jill Cooper

My back pressed against gnarled gray bark

Ancient limbs arc to the sun and heaven

My Feet planted to the winter's earth

Watery sunlight splashing my face
