MOON:Subconscious, Secret, Dreams, Night, Passive
MASK: Perception, things aren’t as they appear, deception
Today’s message is to acknowledge the shadow. You’ve probably heard about “the shadow” or “shadow work” – the subconscious (MOON) or hidden (MASK) aspects of ourselves that create discord in our conscious lives. It is only by recognizing and acknowledging this shadow that we are able to heal and experience true spiritual (SPIRIT) growth. We have to reveal what’s casting the shadows instead of being blinded by the light source. Ignoring the shadow only serves our ego and allows it to continue to affect our lives in a negative manner. This is more evident in our current social climate than ever. Do you feel like the world is crumbling around us? It is! The collective shadow is being revealed and it is shaking our perceived foundations to the core. This is what “awakening” looks like. It is choosing uncomfortable growth over stagnation for comfort’s sake. Many of us have been able to turn a blind eye to ugly areas that “don’t affect us” (which is fallacy), and it is really overwhelming for so much to be revealed at once. And if you’re reading this and thinking “Yes! I’m so overwhelmed and miserable right now! Thanks for pointing that out <insert sarcasm>”, I say to you: “I’m glad you’re paying attention!”. So what can we do about the misery? Change! There’s the adage that says “the only constant in this Universe is change”. When something isn’t working anymore, we do something different until we find something that does work. Let’s do something different. Change may look different for each of us, but we each have a role to play in the changes that will affect us on a global scale. Step 1: acknowledge your own shadows. What “triggers” you? Step 2: follow the clues from the “trigger” back to the source (Here’s a hint: it’s almost always fear). Step 3: find ways to reconcile the issue(s) you find at the source. Ask for help. Listen. Rest. Try again. Go forward with new information and a new perspective. Never underestimate how the small changes in your own life affect society as a whole.
