SHADOWS ENLIGHTENING [Text]
As a lightworker, doing shadow work is not only for your client.
How did becoming a healer happen for you?
Did you choose to be an energetic healer / a spiritual teacher? Or were you chosen by the great spirit in an unforgettable moment?
In both cases, I am sure that being in the light service feels simultaneously like an extraordinary light shower and a crazy drive on an unpaved trail while ______ (fill in the gap with the thing that feels the most impossible to you)- you know something incredible is happening, but you have no idea where this dragon drive is taking you.
Because, Oh my,
as a light worker we are ever to be aligned with such delicate unseen streams of constant changing consciousness, which requires both living with hypersensitivity to all those subtle vibrations and maintaining super clear boundaries.
What does this alignment look like? Here are some examples you can surely recognize :
– Feeling profoundly touched by any emotion presenting itself to you and through you while creating and offering a pathway to transmute it all into a greater state of equanimity.
– Experiencing deep love for all being and being itself while profoundly contemplating and puzzling about the essence of all that which exists.
– Intuitively and spontaneously shifting low vibrational energies of places, people and situations while maintaining healthy relationship with those involved, as well as appropriate social behavior.
What’s more, we are to do all of this light work while staying sane and saintly.
Facing your shadow sides
Most likely, when you became a healer and a wayshower, you expected to face the dark, but you might not have anticipated that you would be constantly called to face your own shadow side.
The constant enlightening of your shadows is one of the big elements that contributes to the contradicting experience described above.
Especially because in the work of facing your shadows (that seem to enjoy the show), you may not always feel confident and worthy.
Somehow as lightworkers we are expected not to have shadows, what would be better is it we were expected to do our shadow work with great compassion and mastery.
Hilariously enough, many of us are expecting the same from our own teachers and healers,
and leave, run or speak badly when we encounter a teacher’s shadow.
I remember clearly the moment that I have seen the shadow of one of my teachers, and the time I have seen a shadow side in my master behavior.
I felt shocked, shaken and a little bit lost, I can even say.
It would have been easy to leave, gossip, or complain,
but this was not my response.
Instead I paused and declared within:
“I am here for Mastery, nothing less.
I am here to transcend all into light.
I am here to live light.
I am a master student/teacher/healer
And as such I have the privilege to learn from light
and the brilliant ability to learn from darkness,
as they are all divine, but simply appear differently.”
Once you chose a teacher, it is your job to learn from him.
A good teacher teaches also through his shadow
A great student learns from EVERYTHING!
Enlightening the shadows – From shadow into light
When you are judging a certain behavior as shadow, you might be missing a ‘once in a lifetime’ opportunity to learn something your mind will never be able to catch.
Overcoming your master’s shadow side might be your best training ever on how to transform any shadow, yours or that of your clients.
In today’s spiritual touristic era, Judging (which is energetically like turning your back to something) or leaving because you have seen someone’s shadow (including your own)
is the easy choice,
not the master choice.
Beloved, dear master, we all have shadows,
The art is to learn to transmute them, no matter where they shows themselves,
into a blossoming garden of elated glow.
Transforming chaos into life, shadow into light- is the primarily sacred work.
This is at the womb of life creation.
This is the original Divine work.
You were born to do that!
You are the master!
I love you!
