I grew up, studied and worked in South Africa until the age of 43, and have been working in Canada in private practice for 23 years. I work with individuals, couples and families. My practice is eclectic, and I use a combination of Cognitive Behavioral, Emotionally Focused and Depth-Psychology approaches for problems such as personal crises, relationship issues, psycho-dynamic dream work for personal growth and life turning points. I am also an artist; working with and recognizing symbolism in everyday life. The similarities of the human psyche throughout all world cultures drew me into studying the Archetypes, which portrays the unconscious elements in all people. Symbolism and Archetypes is commonly uses in art, and it helps me understand the collective processes humans go through in life. The unconscious framework of being, portrayed in symbols, gives a glimpse of the process of human evolution itself.

Dawn

As I turned on my side in the darkness of my bed, ready to embrace a welcome sleep, I felt the weight of a hand touch my side. It was a supportive and consoling touch. For a moment I took in the sensation of comfort, knowing that no physical person was present in the room, that it must be someone diseased who is close to me. My spider-senses searched the ethers for recognition of some kind that will give me knowledge of who was visiting me. Spontaneously I uttered the words “hello Mommy”. Her touch felt warmer and a tiny bit heavier on my side and then slowly faded as I fell into sleep.

Ever since I was a child I would wake up in the morning when the tiniest ray of light emerged through my darkened room. My bedroom was yellow, a choice my parents gave me. I am still like that today; sensitive to the slightest of light rays that will wake me from sleep.
The softest minutest indication of light woke me in the very early morning. I thought of my latest artwork ‘Dawn”, a free motion quilt of a watercolor painting I printed on silk. I finished it last night. It is very yellow. I like it a lot, because it reminds me of this kind of morning where my consciousness is on the edge between darkness and light. That is the time of transition between the worlds of unconscious and consciousness, where I am most aware of Life. It is a time between the past and the future, right in the absolute aware present. It brings me to such clarity where poetry meets realism, my ancestral self meets my future self and I feel completely alive with knowingness.

The yellow in my art-piece is a color of death and new life, that color that reminds me of Fall and Spring simultaneously.
Just as in my art-piece, the moment is fragile, yet full of potential; the trees are thin and vulnerable, yet the leaves are strong and vibrantly ready to grow. The tulip bulbs are just breaking ground, yet ready to blossom their joyous colors. The sun is rising red, with an overwhelming bright yellow light, as it appears from the dark night, yet it is not blinding. I appreciate this small conscious moment, because the light soon changes into full sunlight that promptly fades my awareness of the intense darkness and night. This is when I lose my dreamworld, my deep unconsciousness and of that world of other dimensions.
The consciousness given in these Dawn moments are unexpected and surprising, just as if they sprout from a source of wisdom in the Universe and from a higher vibration that connects to my humanness.
After the visit from my mother last night, I realized that my Soul family may be people I relate to more easily, but they are also all the people of my earthly family. Many of my bloodline family have departed, like my parents, siblings and others. My Mother and Father still visits me and care now more than ever before. They can truly see me now.
I realize that every human I am in touch with on earth are important, they are my spiritual family, in that we help each other grow through challenges or love. No matter who they are, or whether I like them or not, or whether they like me or not, we affect each other. That makes us ‘family’ in this Earthly journey. My bloodline family, my soul ‘family’ and my Spirit ‘family’, is everyone I encounter on this earth.

Family are not people who necessarily make my life easy or understand me, or even like me.  They may be people who challenge me or disrupt my life violently and uncomfortably. Some family may be supportive, and some may challenge me to grow and evolve. I can choose whether their attitude and behaviour towards me will break me down or moves me to grow. That does not mean that I have to be in their company always, but everyone affects my evolution in some way that I choose. I hope to be conscious enough to choose my challenges as helpful for my growth. Family do not always recognise their role as challengers; their tasks are sometimes completely unconscious, just as mine may be. Even the best intentions sometimes turn out to be challenges to others.
This brings me back to my artwork.
Let the ‘Dawn’ of each day enlighten you and me with real growth and awareness of how we connect to each other (alive or departed) and how we move forward, emerging, each day with some part of ourselves budding with new consciousness and constructive life action.
My art piece also makes me think of the current state of our world. Is there a ‘dawn’ breaking after Covid, or are we still chained by our own dark unconscious underworld unable to reach an understanding of what, why, and how to handle this challenge? Are we listening to our deepest soul and higher vibrational wisdom as individuals and as a humanity, for new answers and awareness, that surprise us, of how to evolve through our challenge, or are we complaining and judging everyone around us for our situation? I hope we will use this time to reach a ‘Dawn’. Let us wake up with illumination about a new way of cooperating and evolving our human relationship challenges, so we can emerge with constructive growth, together as an interrelated humanity.


 Jayni authored two books; “The Riddle in the Mirror - a journey in search of Healing”, 2012, Balboa Press, and “Mirrors to your Soul ™– Keys to unlock Divine Archetypal Portals, 2015; a booklet with accompanying hand painted watercolor Archetypal Images that serve as a psychological projective technique and as Oracle Cards.

The world of Symbol connects us to divinity.

It is the artists, storytellers and those souls who use symbol and symbol systems, that maintained our connection with the Archetypes over the ages. It is them who kept the symbolic themes, that medicine that indicates the paths of human evolution, alive in our unconscious minds so that we can re-connect our reason with that softer voice of ancestors, memory and future knowing through symbolism that unfolds the divine voice within us which steers our true healing and destiny.
Healers and all people who want to be healed, re-connect with the symbolic world. We bypass our cognitive emotional defense mechanisms through symbolism and can no longer deny the truth about the emotional-spiritual healing work we need to practice.

Amazing Artist Entrepreneur, Laura Hollick says that Soul Art can offer that missing healing and transformational piece in the healing process, because:
"1) Soul Art enables people to “see” what is happening within them and their lives. That “sight” is like heightened awareness. 2) Soul Art enables people to enter a realm beyond logic through their creativity. It is in this creative realm where the real healing and transformational alchemy happens. 3) Soul Art gives a solid integration practice with the “Spirit Action” to ground all the creative/higher frequencies energies that are awakened through the process."

 

Integrative therapy is a progressive form of psychotherapy that combines different therapeutic tools and approaches to fit the needs of the individual client. With an understanding of normal human development, an integrative therapist modifies standard treatments to fill in development gaps that affect each client in different ways. By combining elements drawn from different schools of psychological theory and research, integrative therapy becomes a more flexible and inclusive approach to treatment than more traditional, singular forms of psychotherapy.
