“It is during our darkest moments that we must focus to see the light.” -Aristotle
Oh, the things we take for granted in life. Like words, or writing, or even how we string words together to make a complete thought. I really went down the rabbit hole tonight and wondered “how do we know Aristotle even said the things we attribute to him or any of the great philosophers that we love to quote?” And then it was “who wrote the first writings that we know of?” My research took me to Mesopotamia where it was discovered that a little-known poet wrote almost 3000 years before Aristotle! Enheduanna was a high priestess and was very prolific as she wrote about life. We got a glimpse of what it was like in that time. As I tried to tune in to what this poet saw through her physical and spiritual eyes, it seemed so bright there. It was a much simpler time and therefore plenty of opportunity to explore life’s meaning and deepest thoughts. Again, I pondered if there was the tendency to look at the shadow side of the human existence as we all have that within us. The poet’s name means “Ornament of Heaven” and so there must have been an understanding of a Creator or spirit being. She wrote about Ishtar, and certainly there was shadow depicted there as this was the goddess of war and love and fertility.
Dear Angels, I believe from the beginning of humanity we have contemplated the contrast that is here on the planet and inside of each of us. Without the darkness we would not recognize the immensity of our Godspark.
Dear Ones, shadow work is the process of exploring and integrating your unconscious and repressed aspects. It involves acknowledging and embracing the darker parts of yourselves that you tend to ignore or reject. By shining a light on your shadows, you open doors to self-discovery and transformation. Contrary to popular belief, the Divine exists not only in light but also in darkness. By embracing your shadows, you come face to face with your vulnerabilities, fears, and insecurities. In this journey, you discover that even within the depths of darkness, there is a spark of the Divine waiting to be acknowledged and integrated. Through faith you develop the courage to confront your shadows and trust in the transformative power of the process. Shadow work is not an easy path, but it is a rewarding one. As you embrace your shadows and engage in shadow work, you gain profound spiritual insights and a deeper connection with yourselves and the Divine. By integrating your shadows, you become whole, and in that wholeness, you find the true essence of your spiritual journey.
Dear Angels, thank you. I love you. Namaste y’all.
Today, I promise to look for the Godspark in both the light and the shadows of life.
