I was in a workshop this weekend, furthering my shamanic craniosacral training. In a session, I got to meet my shadow side. Not nice. But the survivor, the part of me that knows what needs to be done and does it. The part of me that knows how to go after those negative entities and energies that feed off the innocent. This is my great protector and the part of me that protects everyone I love, from family, friends animals, clients and anyone seeking help. The part that is not afraid to be real. My gifts and talents are a combination of all of who I am, and if I am to truly rise to my full potential and become the Healer I know I am, I need to acknowledge both the dark and light within me.
“One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious.”
Carl Jung (1875 - 1961)
