Wisdom by Carl Jung

Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes. We cannot change anything until we accept it. Condemnation does not liberate, it oppresses. Where love rules, there is no will to power; and where power predominates, there love is lacking. The one is the shadow of the other. The meeting of two personalities is like theContinue reading “Wisdom by Carl Jung”

Romantic Love’s Faulty Mirror

Romantic love can take us through the highest heights and the lowest lows. When in the process of falling in love, what we see in our lover and what s/he sees in us are the reflections of the Divine within the observer – not actually from the lover being observed.  In other words, what weContinue reading “Romantic Love’s Faulty Mirror”

Overcoming Perfectionism

As a child, I often walked on eggshells. Never knowing what the mood would be when I arrived home. To help gain a sense of control over my environment, I learned to be quiet, fly below the radar and be as perfect as I could in every single way. I did my best at aContinue reading “Overcoming Perfectionism”

Honoring the Virgin & Vixen Within

When we block or stop an emotional wave of anger, sadness, fear, shame or pride, we must exert an equal and opposite amount of energy to keep the suppressed emotions at bay.  Just asContinue reading “Healing the Political Rift: Permission to Feel “

Today No One Wins

The stakes of today’s election are high. Emotions are fever pitched and yet within others who are boycotting the vote, there is a stark indifference and apathy. Today, no one wins. We project onto and vilify the candidate who triggers within us the darkness parts we wish to not see that are within us. UntilContinue reading “Today No One Wins”

The Necessity of a Broken Heart

We have all experienced at least one broken heart, I’m sure. Perhaps it was a lover, a friend or even our mother. It’s impossible to live without having had someone reach in and pull our hearts out or apart. On what could have been a celebrated wedding anniversary, I’m coming to a new understanding aboutContinue reading “The Necessity of a Broken Heart”
