Why is self work so important?
"Your Self-work is not Selfish it is SERVICE.
Especially your shadow work…
The Planet is burning, the Seas are choked,
The Soils are barren of nutrients,
Everything is becoming more poisonous
and we are letting leaders -that can only be described as mad kings-
Rule us and Ruin us,
We have to address the reasons why this is happening
by looking into the depths of ourselves...
We urgently have to do the shadow work!
We have to face those pains,
the ones that are so scary,
that we do everything in our power to numb them
we have to face the traumas
that we spend whole lifetimes distracting ourselves from
- avoiding them with cheap thrills, drama and screens
We have to face the shames and guilts that keep us small
the reasons why we hand our power over leaders
We have to face the beliefs that keep us bound to systems corruption
and the bitterness that is causing mass poisoning
We have to face the separation that keeps us unloved, egocentric and disconnected.
Because when we are numb to our own pain we are numb to the needs of the planet.
When we are distracted we are living unconsciously
When we hand our power over we are living irresponsibly
When we live bound we serve the madness
and block our paths from happening
While we are bitter with the stories of the past we will keep competing
Until we face the separation in ourselves we cannot live in harmonious connection with the Earth,
Until we face those wounds of un-lovedness they will continue to vacuum life up through desperate over- consumption
My guides often say that change can only happen through inner and outer activism
So yes, do the outer activism!
Give money and feel better for 5 mins
Make new consumer choices and live better for a lifetime
Give Gaia a voice by showing up in protest and
March bravely in the face of looming fascism
Do all of those outer things you can
but please please, please
also, do the inner activism
because when you heal your own shadow
you help the collective shadow to heal
Shadow work is how you become the change
It is time to uproot the causes
and face them fearlessly
This is my service
It is your service
It is our service
and the way through.... "
