Dear Tantric Blossoming Friends
Reflections and Shadow –
what happens in your relationships?

What has been coming into your life recently for reflection and integration? It has been a very intense time with a number of major astrological shifts and transits bringing our shadow elements to the fore. Asking us to go more deeply, to look at what may have been hidden in the past. This can be a very uncomfortable journey and can be increasingly difficult if we resist looking at these parts of ourselves.

November 2013 - Reflections and Shadow

In recent months of my personal journey I have been required to look at my shadow element of helplessness. For someone who is always seen to be capable and in control of what is going on around her, this has been challenging at times. There have been life lessons though, where embracing this part of myself has been necessary and essential. In acknowledging that I don’t always have the answers, I get to experience new parts of my vulnerability and allow space for others’ strengths to shine. Through embracing what has been kept in the dark, I come to experience more of my wholeness, which invites more vulnerability, deeper feeling and more of my unique power and gifts.

This is important in all of our relationships. It is often the things that we are insistent on hiding from the world that show up most in our significant relationships. If we don’t want to acknowledge our fear, people around us will magnify fear by displaying and acting out their fears. If we avoid feeling pain, others will keep on talking about or demonstrating their pain. And if it is something that annoys or triggers you or leaves you feeling uncomfortable, then it is something that needs to be addressed in you.

Tantric practices can support you in being naked and vulnerable with your shadow and discovering a deeper level of integration through compassion. If you would like to learn more, please let us know and we can direct you towards the workshop or session that would best support you.

It’s a great way to incorporate practical tantric experiences into your life today.
