Balancing Affirmations for Unlocking Authenticity

For over 5 years I’ve had an on-again-off-again relationship with positive affirmations. The challenge I run into every time is that I feel immediate resistance to the new affirmation. The parts of me that reject the affirmation quickly rise up. Then within a day or so, all of the areas in my life that don’t meetContinue reading “Balancing Affirmations for Unlocking Authenticity”

Fading into Infinity

Under rocks Hidden well Sheltered from storms Isolated in a shell Finite existence Personal hell. ~~ Budding desires Something new Building fires Clearing out Impaling spires Dying to live. ~~ Breaching boundaries Branching out Building strength Confidence renewed Retreats bidden From which she grew. ~~ Accepting it all; What she had to do Crescendo ofContinue reading “Fading into Infinity”

From Judgment to Compassion 

Over the past few months some things have come up in my life that show me how judgmental I am against myself. Friends and enemies can commit far worse “crimes” and I can pardon them. Yet the slightest mistake on my part and I’m flaying myself with mental barbs and hooks…for much longer than wouldContinue reading “From Judgment to Compassion “

Eris ~ The Trickster 

Eris is the Greek Goddess of deception and discord. She was the one who threw the golden apple inscribed with the words “for the fairest” between Athena, Aphrodite and Hera.

Our Deepest Fear is Our Greatness

According to psychoanalyst Carl Jung, it is easier to get someone’s skeletons out of the closet than it is to get the “gold out of the shadow.” At first glance this may seem counterintuitive. However in digging deeper into the book “Owning Your Own Shadow,” Robert Johnson gives the analogy of the ego (the persona:Continue reading “Our Deepest Fear is Our Greatness”

Breaking Free of The Mind’s Prison

In psychology, the ego refers to the persona or image of who we we wish to be and to be seen by others. This mask becomes our prison when it takes on a life of its own and becomes self-preserving. The ego thus becomes driven by the fear of being discovered as not true. WhenContinue reading “Breaking Free of The Mind’s Prison”

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”

Honoring the Virgin & Vixen Within

All systems seek balance including our inner and outer selves. We often become unbalanced when we suppress the expression of our hidden, or shadow, aspects. This suppression is learned during the process of being raised, as we are taught to deny parts of ourselves to fit into society. We cut ourselves off from our truestContinue reading “Honoring the Virgin & Vixen Within”

Balancing the Edges: Creation & Destruction

All systems seek balance including our inner and outer selves. We often become unbalanced when we suppress the expression of our hidden, or shadow, aspects.

The Misunderstanding of Spiritual Enlightenment

A man is born gentle and weak. At his death he is hard and stiff. Green plants are tender and filled with sap. At their death they are withered and dry. Therefore the stiff and unbending is the way of death. The gentle and yielding is the way of life. Thus an army without flexibilityContinue reading “The Misunderstanding of Spiritual Enlightenment”

It is a great mystery that though the human heart longs for Truth, in which alone it finds liberation and delight, the first reaction of human beings to Truth is one of hostility and fear! -Anthony de Mello
