Take a moment and think about when in your life did you develop strength? wisdom? compassion?
Probably during a challenge.
Maybe you are in a funk right now: overwhelmed, exhausted, confused, resigned, heavy.
Maybe you are in a creative block. You feel in a void or trapped in feelings of rage, sadness, fear, hate. The cause may be unclear. This darkness your experiencing may feel socially unacceptable.
It feels pretty lousy, I know. You are probably ready to kick it to the curb
BUT these times can be gold mines for our souls - our personal development. An opportunity for so much growth.
So how can YOU get there?
First things first. You are vulnerable right now. Prone to self sabotage and unrestricted criticism and overwhelming emotions. When you get there:
1.) 3 deep breaths
2.) Say to yourself: Even though I feel X uncomfortable emotion, I love and accept myself, and the fact that I feel X uncomfortable emotion
3.) Dig in with a couple of options:
Are you feeling BRAVE? Are you ready to finally face your demons? unshackle from fear?
Then this rut is where you need to be. Trust and let's explore this darkness you are in to harness some serious strength, wisdom, and zest for life.
This embracing the shadow spread is about exploring the hidden depths of your soul, where some work and healing is need. Use it to find out:
