As a firstborn, Virgo perfectionist, my pattern was to be in charge of what I put out into the world. In college, when the electric bill was due, I was the one who collected the money and made sure it was submitted on time. When I had children, I left my engineering career to become a full time mom, thinking I was the only one who could properly care for my children. So when I began doing Shamanic work, I was wary of collaborating, lest my co-facilitators be unable to live up to my unrealistic standards.
