Lingering with those people and circumstances, whom unbeknownst to themselves unwittingly encourage you to face your own undifferentiated Self – your Shadow – is a brave act of embracing all aspects of who you are. Catching yourself as you attempt to averting your gaze or feeling that urgency to take leave as your heart squirms, why not stay a while, as you are being offered the opportunity to acknowledge the hidden depths of your being, as the complex personal and ancestral layers are have ensnared your heart are being brought forth.
Perhaps it is useful to remind you that running for cover may be the easy path but in truth these ‘enemies’ have perpetually danced beside you, mirroring your movements with uncanny precision. This part of you is not a menacing creature but a silent companion, patiently waiting for recognition.
Whilst the world around you currently embodies something that you fear or doubt, if you stay a while and listen to its whispered secrets, you will discover that profound wisdom is on offer as you understand its origins and what you have gained from it. In this exchange, you uncover unhealed wounds that yearn for attention, and unexplored passions waiting to be nurtured.
A profound act of self-integration and empowerment is on offer and should you embrace what is being mirrored, you build in strength and fortitude, as well as finding solace in the unity of your light and darkness.
And so you have a choice to make – ignore that which is within and perpetuate a cycle of denial and discontent, or engage and break free from the confines of self-imposed limitations. Will you stay a while and bathe in the deep truth, or will you run for the hills?
