Love, and the twelve steps of how to attract the right person into your life.
The tenth step – The shadow.
By Marzena Pyzio.
Before the light can be perceived, the darkness works its wonders…
To work on self- growth is the hardest job in a world. One can perform many jobs in life, follow many different steps of others who already know the way, however; when it comes to work on self we as humans try to skip it by creating excuses for ourselves. Usually we are telling ourselves that: it is not important right now to think about self, our job that we perform now is more important because brings us money, everyone is more important that we are etc. Nevertheless, in reality, we (I) are more important that everything and everyone around us because if we will not care for ourselves, then we will not be able to help others anyway!
Working on self-growth and following those steps it is not an easy task, but if its followed closely, even though; has definitely some rough edges, it will get you to your dreams. Those rough edges are created by a shadow creeping out of your unconscious memories. Before the sunlight always, the darkness overpowers your energy. Do not fear it, but face it with all of your power because this is the time when all the unneeded parts from your past are being cleared out. This process feels uncomfortable, scary, dull, and one can feel like everything what was worked on before it is gone forever, nothing makes sense anymore, and life feels empty.
The homework for today is: to feel those feelings, let them be, then let them go. They (the bad feelings) will go away and leave you with the light in your heart growing strongly into a great creative power. Thomas Fuller long time ago said: “The darkest hour is just before the dawn” and that is the purpose of this step to caution you about it and to give you hope that this is not the end. This is just a step to be lived and to be noticed by you, to keep the faith in your heart for better (a lot betterJ) things coming into your awareness!
