Introducing you to Gifts of Inner Wisdom on Love Psyche and Soul©

"Many life experiences are fascinating and awe-inspiring, connecting us to something larger to ourselves or to experiences of joy and wonder. Here, the miraculous is felt within the inner workings of self-awareness, having the potential to shift a prefatory way of being into a deep instinctual relationship with the natural and imaginary world. The unique intrinsic meaning to which each person characterizes these significant moments accounts for the possibility of there being “something more” and is distinctly based on individual experience. In this show, host, Danielle Burns, explores the gifts of inner wisdom that validate and orient one’s perception of psychological, spiritual, and creative phenomena. To explore this realm of understanding is to delve into Carl Jung’s theory of archetypes, the essential lens through which each person instinctively and intuitively confronts unconscious self aspects through pivotal and life changing experiences, and connections with numinous material." - Danielle Burns
Love, Psyche and Soul® - April 5, 2019 (Copyright©, All Rights Reserved)
Life is not static, but a complex interweaving of differing holy moments and searches for quintessence in the deep and vast territory of self-meanings, awareness, and understanding of human experiences that lead to sources of wholeness and well-being. Throughout this journey, we use wisdom traditions of the heart and imagination to cultivate a caring presence and fullness of life that is grounded in love, compassion, creativity, and inner transformation.
This process of becoming is a journey that each person does not enter alone, but is accompanied by one’s imagination. This is the essential lens through which we instinctively and intuitively confront unconscious self-aspects through pivotal and life changing experiences. In my opinion, each individual has a very unique way of achieving wholeness, self-understanding, or awareness through archetypal experiences. Today, I share my personal story with you. So now, let us begin...
The Flower Sermon
"...Attributed to the spirituality of Zen Buddhism is the long-told story known as the “flower sermon." During this story, Buddha is said to hold within his grasp a delicate flower and with patient, gentle focus and no words, a sermon is delivered to his disciples. While several of Buddha’s disciples were lost as to the meaning of his sermon, still one walked away having uncovered its true essence, a revelation etched within the flower itself secretly revealed to the one who held it.
As demonstrated by the Buddha’s sermon, flowers have the potential to transmit ineffable messages of wisdom, revelation, and becoming to a chosen few, without the use of words. In particular, I found myself placed among the minority of seekers and appreciators of nature’s ethereal beauty - a timeless vessel of awakening in spiritual tradition, folklore, and on a more recent note, personal life experiences.
My appreciation for flowers began in childhood, an innocence met and chosen by the radiant essence of the lily. In folklore, the lily holds several meanings - hope, faith, birth, passion and becoming. In one such Greek tale, Zeus desires for his son, Hercules, to become a god. So, he lulls is wife, Hera, into a deep sleep, while invoking the god of Somnus. He then instructs Hercules to drink milk from Hera’s breast. Only to Hercules’ surprise, the milk does not empty, eventually spilling over into the Milky Way, the remainder of which seeds the development of beautiful white lilies on earth.
Given the story’s concentration on the lily as a symbolic representation of fertility, birth and renewal, there is much to consider in terms of the way the lily takes form within one’s personal life. Honoring this message meant to once again hold the lily within my own grasp, as did the Buddha within his sermon.
Thus, holding the image of the lily within my mind’s eye, I envisioned a tall, slender flower, erupting out from the soil, succumbing to the weight of its branches, the tips of which had buds and blooms that exploded with pink and burgundy hues.
I observed the flower within my mind’s eye as it gently leaned toward the direction of the spring sun and swayed to the rhythmic pattern of the wind as it came and went. I surrendered to the wind’s tune, in sync with the flower. I moved to the rhythm of time…of deeper, more spiritual calling…an inner beauty long forgotten…still buried within the soil of my past.
I took another breath, emptied my mind’s contents, and refocused my attention on the flower, now with ever more determination to uphold the essence of its meaning. I gazed at the flower until my eyes were no longer used as the primary focal tool. All other material in my peripheral vision faded away, but for a moment’s glimpse of the Spring sun, and my bodily senses joining me to capture the flower’s ethereal beauty.
I began to see the flower from the perspective of its true essence, released of the movement, texture and form I applied to it. I noticed that it had its own beauty. I blinked my eyes, took a breath, and realized my own eternal beauty..."
Love, Psyche and Soul® is a radio documentary that explores emotional challenges from a depth psychological perspective. Mindful attention is given to experiences that inform the development of the whole person while cultivating a caring presence and fullness of life that is grounded in love, compassion, sensuality, consciousness, and inner transformation.
The radio documentary explores archetypal numinous experiences in singers, songwriters, musicians, clinicians, teachers, and authors using prenatal attachment-oriented Jungian analysis and stages of development. The project aims to develop a broad understanding of psychoanalytic approaches to healing through multimedia art, music, and film.
By exploring this vital intersection between the arts and sciences in such multisensory works as, writing, narration, choreography, theatre, music, and poetry, we bring consciousness to important issues through the power of healing, storytelling, and participatory action research to transform and renew lives.
