Can you truly, madly, deeply be there for yourself, when noone else can…? Are you ready to take up the mantle of ‘keeper and guardian’ of the flame of your original innocence (inner~sense)?
Of late, I have witnessed several of my clients as well as my own experience of this growing realisation that, ultimately, we are the ones who must be there for ourselves, when all else falls away.
There will always comes a time, when we feel let down, abandoned or betrayed by another’s actions, and we are left to our own devices.
Sitting in this profound place of ‘aloneness’, and meeting whatever pain, hurt and anguish shows up, literally builds our resilience to enter these places within that rage like forrest fires
Rather than spilling this burning energy onto another, blaming them for having caused it, there comes a time, when we dare to step closer to the epicentre of our suffering and instead turn inwards and confront it.
This literally triggers a profound purging process.
In meeting head on, the full wrath of our deepest longing ~ a miracle begins to spread throughout our entire being.
The masks, manipulative acts and false ego structures all of which have protected us from our core wounds, start to melt in the intense heat within.
Some we were born into, others we developed, nonetheless, all must go, as these fires rip through us, leaving no place unsinged.
The idealisation that another can give us those things we didn’t receive as children also dissolves back from where it came.
That which is true, eternal and free remains incombustible. All that is false and fake drops away.
As we burn off all the layers of toxic unconsciousness, co-dependency and victimhood, the more revitalised we become.
Our fierce and primal innocence emerges intact from these wild fires of our once fettered souls.
Ironically, we have spent entire life times seeking succour outside ourselves, only to find this ally, we always sought, was always right here within.
Where wild infernos once laid waste to entire landscapes, a sacred flame now burns gently in the sanctuary of our heart.
This passion, now harnessed, feeds our soul, accompanies our inner child and guides us on our way home.
