The shadow twin of courage

Courage and vulnerability

What I’m learning more and more along the spiritual path is that nothing exists, or indeed can exist, in isolation; everything has its complement. So when you open to something intentionally, you need to be aware that you’re also inviting in something else that you may not be aware of, or quite so willing to embrace!

Diamond facets of the self

Facets of self

Following on from my post Healing with Inner Archetypes, and before I start looking at these in more detail, I wanted to talk about why it can be so helpful to see and understand yourself as a composite of many different aspects.

When there’s something about ourselves we don’t like or are ashamed of, or when we do something that we label as stupid or not good enough, it whacks our self-esteem with a giant hammer blow because in that moment we’re usually seeing ourselves only as that one thing. We forget, for example, the million things we’ve done brilliantly and efficiently already that day and we focus on the one task we just got “wrong”. We see ourselves as a complete and utter failure.

The energetics of dis-ease

Self-care and responsibility

I ended up in bed with flu for a week recently; something that has not happened to me for 15 years. While I accept I was infected by a virus to which I was exposed, I also know that I’ve resisted viruses successfully in the past and so I always have to look at where my responsibility lies for any dis-ease of mind, body or spirit that develops.

It wasn’t difficult to find it, and I wanted to share my honest appraisal with you so that you can be more aware of how things can pile up energetically and result in a lowering of vibration that allows physical symptoms to develop.

Healing with inner archetypes

Healing inner archetypesI recently watched an interesting film called Split about a man with dissociative identity disorder, brilliantly played by James McAvoy. It showed how emotional and physical trauma can cause aspects of the psyche to split off into independent identities, all of them displaying unique personalities and (fascinatingly to me as a holistic healer) physiologies. Some are male, some are female. One may smoke while another is a health fanatic and yet another has to inject insulin to control diabetes.

The film showed an extreme example of imbalance that ultimately led to criminal behaviour, but what many people aren’t aware of is that even in a healthy psyche this sort of separation is present to some extent.

Rebel with a cause – reading for 2019

Posted on Jan 2, 2019 in Spiritual living, Tarot

Thoth Princess of SwordsIt’s always good to see a Princess, as she births spirit into matter so that it can become solid and real. In the case of this Princess, it’s ideas that are being brought through from heaven to earth. Not only bringing those ideas through but, more importantly, putting them into action.

As you can probably work out from the image, this is not always a peaceful process. There will be some conflict and likely confusion as radical and rebellious thinking comes up against opposing forces still locked into tradition and resistance. So the activism, protest and uprisings we’ve been seeing more and more of in the world are going to continue.
