A Shadow Work Practice

Posted on

wild-thing

This practice is sort of intense.

It is about bringing the monsters in the basement– the exiled parts of ourselves —

up into the warmth of awareness, so that they no longer can run the show from the shadows.

Make sure to connect with your feet and your body before you begin.

Put a hand on your body, on your heart perhaps, or belly.

Make sure you breathe, deeply, throughout the practice.

The practice is to watch this short animated film from Steve Cutts.
It is about the disconnected, consuming, abusive, lonely part of ourselves.
This part is you. And the awareness of this part, is also you.

 

 

Breathe…

We can feel overwhelmed and hopeless when we open our eyes to how we treat the earth,
so much that we rather just ignore it, but don’t underestimate the resources within you,
we can turn this around.
When you see the power of your shadow self, you can begin
to understand the power of your love.
Your love is a hundred thousand times more powerful than this.

 

May all beings have loving kindness

May all beings be well

May all beings be happy and at ease

May all beings have loving kindness
