We are sovereign, and so is every other person of this earth. Step beyond polarity, into unity, in your centre of your heart. Allow the mind to be one with the heart and soul. Change starts with one heart. Unity happens with another when we harmonise, when we are in resonance with another.
Love unifies, love knows no fear, love heals. Love seeks no ill will, needs no explanation. Love respects oneself and the other. Love seeks not. Love just is.
Love is abundance. Love is health, wealth, joy, freedom, peace, harmony. Love is also powerful, forceful, determined, strength, resilience. Love transforms dark into light.
It’s the mind that should serve the heart. The heart inspires and the mind gives direction and form to our inspirations. By learning to calm the monkey mind, by allowing space for it to quiet, we start to hear the whispers of the heart and soul.
Discernment is maturity. It is wisdom distilled with time and experience. Discernment is knowing right from wrong. It can be kindness through absence. Discernment can look like doing the ‘wrong’ thing when everything is seemingly right but something just feels off. With discernment, inspiration, intuition, love, wisdom, spirit and some guidance we can find our way.
It’s by facing our shadows, allowing them to show us what is in disharmony that we heal. By not shrinking in fear to them, we allow ourselves to grow. So by quietening the mind, we create space to observe the triggers. By giving space and time for the triggers and shadows to say what it needs to say – we have a chance to see and understand them. To let them unravel, to unpack them. To start to declutter them. We start to discern for ourselves what is really going on for us. This is shadow work.
It’s in a safe contained sacred space, we listen and can stalk the shadow. Stand with love and allow the shadow to give you it’s message. By not judging, criticising, diminishing, ridiculing and ostracising the shadow, we let the shadow settle. That part of us that is wounded, that hurt inner child. The one that cries because it’s been neglected for so long starts to see that you are serious, and that you can be trusted. Over time doing shadow and inner child work, harmony can be attained.
So be gentle with oneself. When you walk the path to healing, you are doing all that you know best, even if it looks and feels like you’re doing nothing at all! It’s inside work this. Shifts can start slowly and only be visible outwardly over time.
Healing isn’t linear and it does not have a particular time schedule. The soul has its own understanding of time. Sometimes things seem to take so long to change because so much is happening behind the scenes. And at other times, healing can happen in an instant. This is heart work, it is intuitive, it is yin. It can be gentle and at times it can be yang, like a powerful force. Like a bitch! Because sometimes we are so out of alignment that the therapeutic process can feel like a savage bitch slap.
When you do the inner work, what you’ll find is that you’ve always held the power to your wellness. Ultimately it’s ourselves we have to face. It’s only us that can take our medicine and walk the path to healing. The choice is ours, be a victim or be the victor. It’s up to us, we are sovereign.
