while writing the last blog article I realised how important the shadow work and the dying out of the limiting structures, identifications is and although we have already digged deep and transformed a lot in the Study Circle since March, we have not reached bottom yet. so the intention for the tele study circle was to gain a bit more strength and power and to find out more about the magnificence of our true Self – by doing a bit of alchemical work, by changing a bit of lead into gold….
An exercise one can do more than once, resp should do often: Imagine you stand in front of the mirror, resp you step in front of the mirror; and it shows you your shadow. Your fears. All that makes you tremble, scars you to show yourself, gives you the feeling of being less important, causes you to feel pain, activates the need for outer confirmation. Your addictions, expectations, limiting beliefs. And then you step into the mirror or, choose what is best for you, let the shadow step out of the mirror, and embrace your shadow (the alchemical moment).
In case the mirror is not working for you, you can alternatively place yourself (as lead) into the alchemical flask and light the fire underneath.
if you knew that this darkness
this not knowing
this separation, social distancing
what is my life about,
this falling apart,
this digging through your past
this change that is pushing on you
will stop soon,
would you not want to take advantage of it
to set yourself free?
its the perfect shape to do so,
in fact this is the shape of change
a whole new life is waiting
a whole new way is coming
listen to the small voice within you
land inside your pain,
don’t keep running,
hungry for what?
afraid of what?
is your landing spot
to belong, to love, to be
inside your own vessel
