Coquelicot Gilland

Coquelicot's work has evolved through her more than 20 years of experience of being a minister with the Association & Integration of the Whole Person (AIWP). To every session, Coquelicot brings her intuition and vast knowledge base. Then she gets out of the way to let something else arise; she makes room for a larger knowledge, and invites grace to enter. Coquelicot has a capacity for deep listening, listening beyond the limits of her personality and academic learning. By dropping and melting into something much larger than herself, she becomes simultaneously a student and a teacher, a facilitator and a catalyst. From there, she supports people to free themselves from the internal obstacles that block their innate ability to access this source directly.

Grounding and Boundary Meditation

(A compilation from Kathleen Vasvary, Richard feather Anderson and myself plus various friends –feel free to add to it or change it to best suit yourself)

- See yourself sitting in a favorite place in nature with your back against your favorite tree and a stream gently running nearby. It should be someplace safe, warm and cozy.

- Feel your heart

- Send a red arrow from your heart straight down your spine and deep into the earth feeling it move through changing soil textures, crevices, between rock, through water, and caverns, between crystals, minerals, or into lava.

- Let it travel as deep into the earth as it longs to go and then let it gently anchor in its own time and place. Feel the strength, security, and stability of that connection.

- Now breathe up the red energy from inside the earth. Feel it flowing into your heart and in your lungs. After a few focused breaths take a moment to rest and savor the fullness inside of you.

- Now feel your heart again and send a blue arrow from your heart up through your spine out the top of your head into the air, high above you. Sense it traveling through the atmosphere, the air getting thinner and thinner. Sense it as it travels straight out through the atmosphere of the earth past the planets in our solar system, out into the cosmos. Let it travel as far out as it longs to go.

- When the blue arrow has found its home, feel it anchor solid where ever it is meant to. Do not censure the journey, just participate in it moment to moment, experiencing the images unfolding inside you.

- Now breathe down the blue energy. Take a few breaths with blue energy letting it fill your heart and lungs. After a few focused breaths take a moment to rest. Again savor the fullness inside you.

- Now breathe the red energy UP from the earth and the blue energy clown from the sky and Let them mix together in your heart. Let the colors blend until they make a vibrant pulsing purple.

- Let this purple energy start to seep out of your Lungs and heart until it fits your whole body. Now Let this color change until it is the right color for your today. Let your cells bathe in it, let it permeate all your tissues into your bones. Drink it up.

- You are now so full of this energy you can't contain it anymore. It starts to seep out the pores of your skin filling up the space immediately around your body, forming an expanding sphere or egg shaped bubble around you. Allow it to get as big as it wants to, large enough to hold your essence. See this bubble extending below the ground your feet are standing on and well above your head between your inner essence and the outer world a membrane starts to form around the bubble and Leaves your grounding cords intact. When the bubble is just the right size the membrane starts to coalesce, creating a skin on its outer surface.

- Into this membrane you impress/imprint all the ideas and intentions you have about what you are open to having in your life and what you wish to screen out. This membrane is permeable and responsive. On simple days you can ask that your membrane only let in what comes in the service of your health and wholeness. You can also ask that your lessons be gentle. This way you won't get caught up in valuing only pleasant experiences to the exclusion of more challenging ones which are often very rich. Everything you come into contact with will be meditated through this membrane before it touches the essential you. You feel so full of your light essence there is no room for anything else.

- When you have imprinted this membrane with your intentions and wishes for the day, sense your connections with ground and sky again. Feel the completeness of your essence within the bubble. Feel the competence and elasticity of your membrane. Feel its ability to know what to let in and what to screen out, without you even needing to think about it during the rest of the day.

Coquelicot teaches didactically, experientially and by example. She brings to each session a lifetime's worth of tools, exercises and practices that I use at home to further my own development. Her genius combines intuition, sensing and a comprehensive knowledge of human emotional and biological development. What I've learned from her has not only given me a deeper understanding of my own patterns, dynamics and behaviors, it's also enhanced my understanding of others. I am a far more compassionate person thanks Coquelicot. In fact to the degree that I am a more evolved being in any regard, Coquelicot was instrumental in my transformation.

"Dear God:

Please untie the knots that are in my mind, my heart and my life. Remove the have nots, the can nots and the do nots that I have in my mind. Erase the will nots,
may nots,
might nots that may find a home in my heart.
Release me from the could nots, would nots and should nots that obstruct my life.
And most of all,
Dear God,
I ask that you remove from my mind,
my heart and my life, all of the 'am nots' that I have allowed to hold me back, especially the thought that I am not good enough. Amen."
