It is through Awareness that we Awaken
Sample Live Online Webinar: Emotional Triggers and Integration
Fear will run your life by default if you try to push it down, ignore, avoid, or try to numb it.
Any fear we are not willing to look at will run our lives either by sabotaging our relationships, inhibiting intimacy and connection, or limiting our ability to live a fully authentic life.
Fear hides the light of the Soul. Fear drives us to lead the same life over and over. Fear causes us to repeat the same patterns. Fear renders us powerless. What fear is driving your emotions? We want our Soul to be the driver in our life not our fear.
We are all born whole and complete. In order to get back to that place within ourselves, we must accept and embrace all the human qualities we were born with. It is only when we love and accept these qualities within ourselves, both the "good" and "bad" qualities, that we can truly accept others without judgement and become whole again.
As children, our fear of not being loved and accepted caused us to hide certain aspects of our personality. As a means of survival, we settled into a safe place where we only behaved in acceptable ways in order to please others. We shut down parts of our true authentic nature. By doing this early on, we suffer as adults. We find we are only living half of our lives. This is what prevents us from reaching our full potential and realizing our Divine gifts, talents, and abilities.
All through our years of growing up, every traumatic event that occurred, every humiliation, every time we were shamed or made to feel guilty, we gave up another piece of our self. These unclaimed parts of us are what the Swiss Psychiatrist, Carl Jung, described as “the shadow.” The shadow holds the parts of ourselves that we would rather not be. These are the aspects of ourselves we hide or deny and the side of our personality we do not consciously display in public.
Our shadow self consists of all the qualities considered unacceptable by the personality. All the qualities you think are not part of who you are. When these qualities are denied, they remain in the dark or the subconscious, but they lose power over us when we bring them into the light of consciousness. At that point, these aspects can be embraced and used for good because only then can their gifts be revealed. By acknowledging the shadow’s presence, we neutralize its potential negative impact on our lives. Acknowledging and reconciling these aspects of our self will fill the void within.
In discovering these aspects of ourselves, we release the restrictions that keep us from expressing ourselves freely. These aspects of ourselves are stuffed deep within our unconscious. When uncovered, the shadow can teach us things about ourselves that may have been deeply buried for years. The shadow is always pushing us in this direction. True peace and freedom are attained when we acknowledge, claim, and love our repressed qualities. This is the road to awakening. We are selling ourselves short by not claiming all of who we are. We cannot embrace what we are not willing to own. We cannot truly love others and have healthy relationships until we acknowledge our own self-hatred. We cannot truly be courageous, confident, and empowered unless we accept our insecurities and fears. We cannot truly embrace success until we admit our fear of failure.
When an aspect of oneself is denied, repressed, or hidden, its energy is strengthened and creates a dark side. It is exhausting and drains us of our vital life force energy when we are constantly trying to hold down the parts of ourselves we deny. By uncovering and accepting our shadow, we reveal the light of creativity, courage, power, and joy. These important aspects of self are required to assist us on our journey to wholeness and in becoming the authentic, soul embodied person we long to be.
Owning is an essential step in healing and creating a life we love. In order to manifest our full potential, we must reclaim the parts of our self that we have denied, hidden, or given away to others. This work is deep and powerful. It is an act of true self love–a gift we give to ourselves.
Learn to make peace with and embrace your authentic nature by discovering those parts of yourself you are denying. With this one action, you will transform your internal suffering, heal your relationships, and restore your health.
