lightworker? let’s be clear, the real work, is shadow work

SHADOW

Lightworker? We don’t need lightworkers we need shadow workers — people with the courage and skill to move right into the darkness and assist in bringing people out. “Lightworkers” talk a pretty game but also talk about avoiding negativity. If we want to heal our species we need to be fit to feel everything and avoid nothing.

That which we avoid is right inside of us hiding — waiting. Let us make it conscious. When we know our own darkness the darkness “outside” can be neutralized.  That is Shadow work.

Self-protection is often necessary. That’s okay. One can still work towards being able to be with and transmute all the ugly in every encounter that we might not need to avoid anything at all.

The more we avoid the dark and ugly the worse it gets…there’s the rub…we really do need to be able to look into shadow. Our darkness and the darkness of others too (it’s the same thing!)…

There is little will to do that all around…and among those of us who actually claim to love and want to change the world it’s often the worst. It’s possible to face the dark, in ourselves and others, and be at peace both. When we deny the reality of shadow aspects we inadvertently feed it. I challenge all of us to not only look at the darkness but to love it with all our hearts.

The dark wants more than anything to be LIT.  Let us light up the world.

    Monica, How do you choose what books to reference on your website? My teenage daughter has written 2 poetry books regarding her journey with psychosis. Her intent is to give people hope. Both are available on Amazon. She wrote the first one at 16 and the second one completed this year at age 18. I would happy to provide copies of either or both to you. You can also do a Sneak Peek on Amazon. First books is How to be a Human and second is Love Letters to the NSA, by Jennifer Wilson.

    Thank you for your consideration, Kim Wilson
