Greetings All - I have not figured out how to link this to the weekly challenge so if anyone can assist I would appreciate it.
I have probably been doing Shadow work for a long time without realizing it. For this challenge I will tell of one story that I think applies to this challenge. I thank everyone in advance for reading.
I have a photo from when I am three years old and I have always been mesmerized by the look on my face. It is a picture of my mom, older brothers and sister, and my youngest brother probably coming home from hospital. I am the one in the back by the fireplace.
I have studied it for a number of years and had it as the Lock Screen on my phone for I don’t know how long.
I could never quite think of why I would be so serious and deep in thought. Until the other night. It was then that after doing meditation I was looking at the photo and I realized it was at that moment I was no longer the baby of the family. My role as youngest child was over, I was now put into spot number 4, probably the worst spot to be in when it comes to child ranking. But my younger brother was my best friend and we remained that way until he passed away. We were close except for when my dad decided to move and take my brother with him. But even that did not break our friendship and I spent my junior year of high school in Oregon just to make sure he would be okay.
When you are doing shadow work you do have to be careful about what doors you open, as some faded memories are meant to remain faded. But if this ever becomes the case and you open a door you shouldn’t have, keep in mind the following and you’ll be fine. Don’t make choices out of fear. Whatever has been, has already been. Do not spend your days dwelling on or living in the past. Stay grounded and believe in yourself. Like energies attract like energies. Keep your energy level strong and trust in what you can do.
Thank you for reading.
