Ramblings about life . . .

What I share about my life is simply to help reinforce the understanding that it is possible to live with love and laughter, in between the tough times.

Life is what we make of it, no matter how harrowing. We accept and embody this with-in ourselves, thereby allowing the energy to manifest outwardly in our reality.

It starts with each one of us as an individual to form the collective consciousness.

Be the dream.

We honour the light and the life within you.

Please be aware - I upload other bloggers' posts and then delete after a month. This is my journey and others help me understand where I am, until they become irrelevant (a few posts excepted).

Revealing the Light in the Dark

Thanks Ewa for bringing this blog to my attention :-)

There is a universal need to transform our personal demons of fear, anger, ignorance, jealousy, confusion, unwothiness, shame... the aspects that Jung described as our shadow; those parts of ourselves that the conscious mind deems unacceptable. It is the parts we don't want others to know about, and yet they appear in our dreams or manifest in exaggerated form in those around us.

We can see clearly those aspects in others but are reluctant to own them in ourselves. However, we only have to look into the mirror of the other to begin to make conscious the darkness within.

If we look at what we most despise in others, we usually see one of our own demons reflected back. We often ridicule and criticise others who embody something we are trying to repress in ourselves. I smile to myself when I recall a time when I heard myself say "I hate judgemental people!" Hmmmm...

When we repress the shadow we set up a battle within, tying up energy and resources that could be put to far better use, we block our experience of freedom.  However, when we name and recognise our inner demons, the magic of the light in the darkness can be released. Our demons can become our daemons, good and benevolent spirits.

We have a horror of confronting the unacceptable parts of ourselves and yet without the dimension of shadow we cannot reveal our true nature, we remain in a uni-dimensional world. When we dare to embrace the shadow, we have the opportunity to balance our inner and outer worlds, to gain sovereignty over previously rejected parts and thus gain access to the "I Can" power of the universe.

Shadow work can be painful, that is why we resist it, and yet it is the key to freedom.

Jung said:"One doesn't become enlightened by imagining figures of light but by making the darkness conscious." And Rilke said: "Perhaps everything terrible inside us is, in its deepest being, something helpless needing our help."

I have found it really helpful to allow the vibration of the pair of divine names,  #3 Ya Malik, Sovereignty and #84 Malik ul Mulk, Passionate Vision to help me gently and safely bring forth the power hidden within the shadow. These ancient root sounds from the highest planes can activate an alchemical process, a magic that invites miracles to happen. 

Silently breathe the sounds Ya MALeek  and Maleek ul Mulk  into your heart helping you to have the courage to allow the power of the cosmos to come through you and release the magic of light hidden within the darkness.

This work is potent, go gently and be patient with yourself.
