Your wisest self is your one true leader.
“. . . Ged had neither lost nor won, but naming the shadow of his death with his own name, had made himself whole: a man: who, knowing his whole true self, cannot be used or possessed by any power other than himself, and whose life therefore is lived for life’s sake and never in the service of ruin, or pain, or hatred, or the dark.”
Ursula Le Guin - A Wizard of Earthsea
Even though the above quote is from a fantasy novel, it speaks to the truth of our current times. The truth of Trump’s political games, and his followers continually giving their power over to him only to learn they have lost themselves completely.
No matter who is president of the country, corporation, school board, or town’s council, it’s up to each of us to empower ourselves in connection with Source. To come into the center of who we are, and follow the guidance of the divine wisest self within. Then we are fully capable of making choices from clear Knowing.
For when we come into relationship with our inner source, we are more capable of listening to our needs, the needs of others, and the needs of the earth. To be of greater service. Because we are following our divine hearts in service of the whole.
My intention for this post is to demonstrate the importance of connecting with your inner source bringing forth your wisest self as the leader of your life. This post explores the shadow aspects of the self, and its purpose of provoking us to enlighten our soul consciousness. Ultimately, empowering each of us to be the leaders of our lives so we can share our gifts in service to humanity and the earth.
I also share with you the Inner Source Attunement podcast. A guided meditation empowering you to access your wisest self as the guide of your life’s purpose. Because during this time of chaos and change, it’s paramount that each and every one of us be empowered vessels of light, enlightening our soul consciousness to raise the vibration of humanity and the earth.
Choices create the causes of our lives. From cause, effect shows us our choice.
A definition of shadow in the context of spiritual work:
Shadow — the underlying beliefs, habits, and patterns connected with causes developed from fear, control, hatred, lack, doubt, guilt, shame, and judgement.
Of Shadow and Wholeness. The center of the divine self, the wisest self is always there, like the sun. Shining its light bringing life into us, and illuminating our brilliance. But at night we only see the reflection of the sun in the moon. At times in our lives, we may feel we are perpetually walking at night, traversing situations with only the shadow, the negative fearful aspects, leading the way. And yet, the moon helps us with our shadows. She supports us diving into the depths of who we are. Being connected with your inner core source involves working with your shadow aspects. By doing so, your soul becomes more conscious, and you become more capable of experiencing the wholeness of who you are.
When the sun and moon of our Being are in harmony, we enlighten our Soul Consciousness.
Witnessing the shadow without being effected by it, gives us the contrast to see the light of our souls. Then we are free to receive guidance from the Eternal One, the Grandmothers, the Christ essence, and live life with fullness, joy, love, and happiness.
The shadow of an individual is the shadow of humanity.
Shadow’s Purpose. The shadow’s purpose is to provoke us to come into relationship with our truest selves. However, most often we become over powered by the sheer fear and unknown aspects of the darkness within and around us. The shadow can only have power over us by how suppressed it is within. By paying attention to dreams, working with stagnant patterns of the mind, emotions, and body, the shadow becomes known — revealed. As a part of you. To be listened to, to be understood, to be known.
As our shadow aspects come more into form, and into the light, then we can face the sun, embracing the brightness of our true selves — walking forward with arms open wide in a state of Knowing. When this occurs, the shadow walks behind us, no longer obscuring our way, it finds its place. It continues to be a part of us, yet no longer has its grip on us through the illusion of fear and its cohorts of control, hatred, lack, doubt, guilt, shame, and judgement. Then those who would use fear as a tool of manipulation no longer have their power over us.
In illuminating your shadow, you increase your knowing about which aspects have their tightest grips. Then you become empowered by your inner true source. Your awareness becomes strong, and your heart's intention guides you. Your intention is now connected with the Eternal One and the earth through your inner source — your wisest self.
Your wisest self is your one true leader.
Being connected with your wisest self motivates you to bring your unique gifts into the world. Guiding you to take the steps to accomplish your inner and outer work, revealing your life’s purpose. Once you’ve uncovered your gifts, like finding precious gems in the earth, the next step is polishing your gems so they shine with integrity, honesty, and compassion. Then you're ready to bring them forth into the world. Serving all sentient beings, to the best of your ability, from your wisest self.
