Every day I pray that I can be true to my spiritual practices. One of my practices is holding a space for all energy I see, no matter if I determine it to be positive or negative. When energy is coming toward me I want to decide to let it pass through me or around me. When energy comes from me I pray the Lord is coming through my thoughts, words, and deeds. Occasionally, I falter and say or do something I don't think the Lord would have said or done. That's my ego's shadow side, usually through the Victim archetype (see Caroline Myss). But I don't get too sad about it, I know it's a practice and I'll do better next time. But what do I do with the energy that includes something I don't want to do anymore ever? I have to trust it is not right for me right now because I'm only human, as the song goes. That's how I remain kind to myself. Deb B.
I'm very happy to be blogging about my spiritual path. I've a long way to go but I've come a long way, too. Love to all, Deb B.
