I went into meditation recently with the question for my Spirit guides – What information would be most useful for people now? Healing our shadow, they said.
Healing of the self. Honoring the shadow as part of the self. Gazing with love at the shadow is extremely important right now.
We must do that now within ourselves, and we must do that with those we consider the Other. Especially those whom we consider to hold entirely wrong beliefs.
They reminded us that those others see themselves as whole. That they see us as the Other. That the Other is Us. (Who remembers Pogo?)
They remind us the Shadow is also divine. The more we love and see clearly our shadow, the more love we have to see the shadow in others and to send love to that shadow. It is about bringing love into the darkness. To receive and send love in the darkness.
Send love. Send love inward and send love outward. Send love into all the dark places, and honor the dark, as you honor and love the light. It is necessary for balance.
Accepting and loving the shadow in the self leads to healing the collective shadow.
Yes, action is necessary, they said. Love also spurs us into action. When we act from love and compassion, when we act from this place of being in balance with our own shadow, we are much more effective. And we bring healing, and we bring understanding, and we bring our listening, and above all, we bring our love.
Refuse to hate in the face of what looks like hate to you. Remember, the others see you as the Other. Remember, the others are seeing you as the hate. Remember, the others are us. Remember, the other is you. Remember this. Remember.
This is just a taste of what they said. To listen to the full 7-minute recording of this session, click here. (Sorry, my dogs chimed in during part of it…)
