As winter changes to spring, here's a new way to do some spring cleaning: Let the baggage you've been carrying, hiding behind, making pretty on the outside...go.
We spend so much energy fighting against our social, ancestral and evolutionary conditioning behind the scenes. Once that is transmuted, elation follows a big butt face plant on the floor. Realizing how heavy that load is, the one we all carry, is only brought to our consciousness the moment it's let go.
We are conditioned to fit into someone else's rules, structures and routines, sometimes so far away from the way we want to love ourselves.
Being brave enough to trust, then pause and to shine the flashlight into the veil that keeps us away from the way all humans are meant to be can seem so scary that most people prefer to stay in autopilot. And yet, an epiphany can fuel you to take another peek and then another.
Identifying baggage is as simple as looking at your life - map out the most significant events in your life, objectively, to become your own life forensic expert. You'll find patterns, sometimes with exponential levels of pain, in doing so. The good news is that you can remediate life patterns by transforming the trouble in your life into a metaphor (the language of the subconscious) then finding its opposite.
Let the two talk, listening to the pain metaphor's story....it's a gift that has been trying to express itself to you and allow the love that's been denied to come to the light for reunion with your soul. That's all that it's been trying to tell you. It just wants to be heard so that it doesn't have to continue to yell for your attention.
What happens when you shine al light on a shadow? It transmutes and disappears into light.
So contrary to social conditioning about looking at our shit, right? It's not the hard but we've been lead to believe that only experts can help us.
Letting go of our shadow, our baggage, our wasted energy only takes courage or enough pain to change. And no one else can do it for you because it's your life.
Make some space so you can use your energy freely towards your true life.
So, this spring, lighten your load by shining a light on it, and let your life be light. We're all waiting for you.
