“Many people following a #spiritual path do their darnedest to stay away from what we call the “ #Shadow.”
Until one learns that both sides, light and dark, equivalently factor into the #whole, all is lost in the search for truth.
The #Buddha speaks of all the necessity of knowing the dark before one can become #enlightened.
Your journey here on Earth is perhaps to experience everything and that means the Shadow too.
When you experience a Shadow aspect, resist not.
Bring awareness into it and #transform it.
This is a true a priceless gift.
In many ancient cultures unless the #healer has experienced the illness himself, he was not considered capable to #heal the condition.
If tribal children were traumatized they were put through serious training to learn to face and transform the Shadow.
Usually they went on to become a gifted #Medicine person who helped others do the same.
It is possible to transform your Shadow.
But first you need to understand what it is.
The Shadow side of #Self, which hinders growth, is constantly inviting you to transform it on a daily basis.
Be they fears, negative thoughts, projections, harmful habits, or feelings of self-importance.
Resisting your Shadow prolongs suffering.
Know in every Shadow death there is beauty unfolding the birth of a new gift or talent.
The Shadow medicine card brings great possibilities of #transformation, #forgiveness, #wisdom, and understanding.
Discovering your Shadow can show you much about “who you are not.”
The Shadow also shows you your #light.”

so you can
when you have
blame and guilt.
Love is acceptance
Love is patience
When we listen
to the feelings
and act on
the good ones,
We all feel it.
Love warms us
like wild flowers.
So if you hurt
to love again.
Don’t seek it.
If you have fear,
to be there
and pour love in.
is the answer.
It is everything. -
I remember when I first realized that my levels of anxiety were connected to my obedience. It was profound. It was when I was experimenting with cutting back on my daily alcohol intake. In the stillness of yoga God had encouraged me to cut back so that he could connect with me more. I had been drinking two beers a night for the past 15 years. So I started a practice of praying about whether or not it was ok to have my beers that night. And he told me. And when he told me no but I chose yes, I woke up the next day with so much more anxiety. And this has not only happened with alcohol it has happened with lots of things- even THINKING unhealthy thoughts! Basically anything he tells me to do, I do it or I will experience anxiety. I don’t believe this is punishment I think it’s a natural consequence of not listening to the one who created me!!! He knows what I need, when I need it and why. He sees the bigger picture and he loves me!! .
People don’t want to think their levels of anxiety (or any psych symptom for that matter) are related to their choices but a lot of times they are!! Instead of receiving shame from this post... perhaps start an experiment yourself!! Take some time in stillness and listen for the still small voice telling you what to do. Try following that guidance and also going against it and then gauge your symptoms. Experience is the best teacher! And once you feel the difference you will find it feels good to do good. God is good.... all the time, so his advice will be just that.
9/2/18: This weekend I inherited a ship clock that belonged to my parents. It’s pretty special to me. My dad loved boats and ships. .
On our last family trip, which was only a week before he died, my Dad told me about his recurring dream: he is on a cruise (which in his waking life, he had been on about 60) and it was going full speed through a no-wake zone. He said it was always very anxiety provoking... but then... he remembers... the captain is in charge ♥️
Giving the father my heart was the BEST decision I could ever think or act on.
My journey with Christ has not been easy.
It’s been filled with pain, rejection, depression, anxiety, hopelessness, loneliness, failures and more.
But through it all I have gained more identity, Hope, peace, love, freedom, joy, and GRACE.
I am still learning how to give Him my heart and allow Him into the areas I have closed off to other’s.
Those areas where no one knows about, where years and years of pain and sorrow reside.
Yes, those areas.
I encourage you today blooming sister’s to allow Him into those areas too.
Give Him your heart + watch what He removes and replaces it with.
This journey we are NOT alone.
Though it can feel so lonely at times we all have that hope and strength to lean on.
That is with Christ + with other blooming sister’s around you.
If you don’t have a sister in Christ to lean on in these moments this community is here for YOU.
Let’s bloom together + arise with one another.
Are you allowing Him in your heart today?
Are you being a blooming sis to another today?
“My child, may you give your heart to me, and may your eyes delight in my ways.” Proverbs 23:26

Three different batches of my finally successful attempt at a #gluten-free version of my #whole-wheat #ChocolateChipCookie#recipe. First two batches melted into each other and the second also baked too long. Added quite a bit more almond flour to make a stiffer dough for the third batch. That did it. Yum!
I knew I was onto something when I realized this chickpea tuna tasted a whole lot like the real deal! 👌🏻 If you're looking for a delicious sandwich filler or salad topper, you GOTTA give this one a try!🙆♀️
15oz canned chickpeas, drained
1 teaspoon dijon mustard
2 teaspoons lemon juice
1 celery stalk, minced
2 scallions or 1/4 red onion, minced
2 tablespoons mayo, I use @followyourheart
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1. Mash the chickpeas really well using a fork or potato masher, then fold in the rest of the ingredients. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator up to 5 days.
When you try to be everything for everybody, you run the risk of being nothing for nobody. You end up sacrificing your peace, compromising your authenticity, downplaying your desires, and neglecting your needs. Starting today, make the decision to choose YOU again! Give yourself permission to be happy, healthy, and whole.....in every area of your life! You have been loyal [to a fault] to everyone else for far too long. Realign your priorities and put yourself back at the top of the list. | ❤ Like | 💬 Comment | 🚀 Share | 👥 Follow @beyondallbordersllc
