The Jewel in the Shadow

Our greatest treasure, our knowing of our true Self, is found deep within that which we have long denied. We identify with our experiences, and those of our experiences that are deemed unacceptable – by ourselves, by others, by society – are hidden by us from our awareness out of shame, fear, resistance and/or pride.

To open to and allow revelation of our essential Self is to open to the darkness that surrounds that Self. The time has come for our shadow self to be illuminated through our intention to know the Truth, so we may find the jewel long hidden within.

What is required to meet the challenge of our own mysteries is our intention to know the Truth of our Self, and our willingness to allow exposure with acceptance of that which has been hidden from that knowing.  When we create sacred space, and honor our own rhythms and timing in the unfolding of the mystery, we can meet and embrace the previously unacceptable, shadow aspects of ourselves.

In that embrace, the jewel of our true nature, the essence of Love, is revealed and can become integral to our sense and experience of our Self.
