Why Do I Write What I Write? by Sherry Puricelli
I first “met” Tzivia when we both led online group dream-sharing initiatives. At the time, my group dreamt with intentions for personal healing on the full moon, while Tzivia’s group dreamt with intentions for world healing on the new moon. I was hooked! Who was this amazing woman? What could I learn from her? Well, I didn’t realize it at the time, but I’d be learning a lot — and I’m learning still… Tzivia is the real deal! She LIVES her work! That means she LIVES mindfulness, she LIVES dreams, she LIVES poetry, she LIVES teaching, compassion, and life-long learning and she writes about it.
It was never my intention to create a traditional tarot deck for conventional readings. Instead, Mystic Illumination invites you to experience archetypal energies as you’ve never experienced them before! Treat yourself by fully immersing yourself and you can experience the archetypes slowly, on a deep, meaningful level so you can make the changes you’re ready to make in your life.
It was inspired when I had a warning dream that my friend was in danger. A few weeks later, that friend died. As you can imagine, I was quite upset! I had not given my friend the information from the dream and I wondered if her life could have been saved “if only.” In the past I’ve had warning dreams that turned out to be true. Some people who have these types of dreams can suffer from a condition that, in the dream community, is known as “dreamer’s guilt.”
Well, that actually depends upon WHAT I’m writing. My blogs are frequently inspired by the archetypal patterns I’m noticing in my dreams and waking life experiences. My poetry, on the other hand, usually begins as a rhythm or phrase that just comes to me, sometimes in my sleep. It typically repeats until I finally write it down to give it a place to rest!
I’ve been told that I have a unique approach, especially with the way I weave together my dreams and waking life synchronicities. While some see them as separate practices, I see all of it as one big life dream! As such, I recognize my deeper patterns and rhythms, using them to live the deeper story, the big dream, so to speak.
I call myself a modern-day mystic. I’m a mom, neighbor, and girlfriend, with all their ups and downs, in addition to being a life-long dreamer with a quest for wisdom and a search for deeper truths. My writing, I believe, is a reflection of my personal way of seeing the world. To all the other down-to-earth dreamers out there, I hope to be relatable, bringing spirituality to everyday life.
I feel “called” to write. It’s my way of sharing, of relating. I believe we’re only here on Earth for a brief moment in time. During that time, I hope to inspire and to be inspired.
