It’s the absence of 𝓵𝓸𝓿𝓮 that creates the madness.
That madness we sometimes feel in our heart when we sacrifice our needs for our wants.
🖤 When we betray ourselves to save a relationship.
🖤 When we choose to love another in hopes that the combined love will somehow overpower the love we have within ourselves.
🖤 When we feel resentment or anger from overgiving and testing the hot stove.
Seeing our shadows from the eyes of another loving mirror is such a gift that we all too often push away. When things get hard, it’s easy to blame and walk away. It’s easy to shift and shy away. It takes much more courage to look the pain in the eyes and question its presence.
🤍 When we finally face the fear, the illusions fall away. The darkness shows it lovely face until we meet it with enough humility to where the madness turns to love.
Our shadows want to be acknowledged and seen just as much as our light. They don’t want to be put in a corner and told they are wrong. They want to be witnessed and held with acceptance until they find the pathway to love.
I’ve become friends with every single past lover that I’ve had (post awakening) because I fully embrace this process.
Yet for the past 3 weeks, I resisted the process, choosing to bask in the madness until a dark cloud came around and took away my safety and stability and I was forced to face it.
And when I leaned in with forgiveness, I felt an instant vibrational shift from catabolic to anabolic energy.
From death to life.
From pain to joy.
From resistance to flow.
In a single day.
And on that day, my house came through, a scooter became available, and I found my grounding again.
This lunar ecplise was a forced cutting away of all of the unconscious shadows coming to the surface to be released. This is a cycle completion in so many ways. This is our pathway to liberation. Remembering what our own love is enough, always.
This Decemeber, we will be embodying these initiations and stepping into the next level versions of ourselves and our visions as we step into the New Year during our Wild Heart Retreat. If you feel the pull to join us in Tulum, this is your invitation. 🌹
