Wild Woman Healing Philosophy
Greetings. My name is Ifasayo (Ee-fah-shy-oh) and I am the healer at Wild Women Do As They Please where we know that healing should be practical (earth), adapted to the individual or group in need (water), administered with love (fire), and take us to our highest destiny (air).
Healing should be practical.
Healing processes are made much easier when we honor the fact that the earth is our home and practicality is highly valued. Any divination, class, guidance session should leave you with new ideas, and modalities of healing that can be applied immediately by YOU. You're healing is mostly your responsibility. Ritual assistance from others is great, but your biggest source of power is within you.
Healing should be adapted to the individual or group in need.
Just like water will take the shape of whatever you pour it into so should healing. We take a look at each case with fresh eyes to see what is needed rather than offering a blanket approach.
Healing should be administered with love.
Love is the master healer, and always the first step. Love opens us up to really see the person we are healing first and the condition second.
Healing should take us to our highest destiny.
You destiny is of the highest importance to YOU. Destiny is very centered in selfhood. In order to reach your destiny, you have to put you first and then every one else in EVERY area.
How did I heal myself?
I began to be honest about my feelings and my issues. I use the healing modalities that I’ve learned like yoga, breath work, meditation, and journaling on myself. Sisterhood has also been a MAJOR part of my healing. Sisterhood is vital to my well being.
What would you like to see in the world in regards to healing?
I would like to see indigenous women relearn and remember how to be their wild selves. I would like to teach indigenous women everyone that recognition of autonomy is the foundation of self love. I want to empower indigenous women with the freedom, and they will in turn heal the nation from a place of love.
Why do I believe what I believe?
I believe what I believe because I have lived it. I have tested it through trial, error, and success.
How will you contribute to bringing about what you’d like to see?
When I worked in a nursing home an elder with Alzheimer’s had Spirit speak through her in a way that literally seemed to pause time. I was tying her shoes when she stopped the random conversation she was having, looked me in the eye, and said, “Young lady? Make sure that you always help people anytime you have the opportunity.” It doesn’t sound like much, but for some reason it resonated with me in a way that I will never forget. That’s how I’m going to contribute.
The modalities I am most passionate about?
I am most passionate about divination, selfhood, sensual yoga and dance to shift energy, and being in nature.
