Shining in the Shadows: Mining the Treasure of Your Inner Landscape

Shining in the Shadows: Mining the Treasure of Your Inner Landscape

Love.   Courage.  Wisdom.   This is your divine essence, who you really are beneath all the layers of mask, pretense, and defense.   Easy to say, but can you feel the truth of that? Or somewhere along the bumpy, twisting road of Life have you lost connection with your Real Self?   Instead, does your journey feel filled with dead ends, wrong turns, painful mishaps? Do you long for more purpose and meaning in your days? Would you like to share that most sacred and precious journey with kindred spirits?   I believe we are all continuously being called back home to our original brilliance. We are called to live life aligned with our integrity and our true power. We are here to discover and transform whatever stands in the way, and to offer our gifts to the world.    To do this we must embark on a journey below the surface of our consciousness, into the shadows of our psyche where the treasure that we are lies buried and waiting for re-discovery.   This is the place inside you that has never been wounded, broken, or tainted regardless of your life circumstances.   It’s there, shining in the shadows.

We pack up our fishing pole and tackle box and head down to the river.    We often have a favorite fishing hole, that place we return to again and again in search of the fulfillment of our endless hunger.  We may never have found it there, but this time will be different.   After we bait the hook and set the line, we sit back and tend to the distractions we have brought with us, like our favorite consciousness altering beverage, or the cell phone that will serve up an endless supply of empty data, devoid of true connection. And so we pass the time, sitting and waiting for the big one to finally bite the hook.   When we become frustrated that nothing is appearing on the other end of the line, we get restless, abandon that strategy, jump in and begin swimming upstream in search of our dinner.   If patient waiting around doesn’t produce results, expend more effort! Will it harder! Find that fish and capture it with your bare hands!     I know, it doesn’t sound like the smartest way to catch a fish, but have you ever found yourself engaged in this strategy in your life? Struggling frantically to catch the only thing you believe...
