Sċeaduwa – Gold In The Shadows… This painting is taken from some ongoing healing and journey work I have been doing around working deeply with the gifts of shadow.
This piece was inspired especially by all the fear, unrest and confusion currently happening around the world due to the covid virus, which is calling out many people’s shadows.
The teachings I was gifted with were focused on real-ising the inherent power and value of our ‘shadows’ at the personal as well as trans-personal level. We are moving through a very uncomfortable but critical time of change and healing, like the great serpent writhing and rubbing its body, shedding its old skin so that it can leave behind that which no longer serves it and can emerge a new. But we cannot truly let go of something that we have not first held, acknowledged and owned.
If you are (understandably) encountering strong emotions or reactions to what is going on, then please try, wherever possible, to not buy into the fear-mongering that some forces are perpetuating. Try to see these feelings as the gift and the empowering opportunity that they truly are. They offer us the gift of having some of our shadow brought out into the light and the opportunity to heal and integrate it.
It is only through us making conscious these shadow parts of ourselves, healing and integrating them and claiming their power that they can serve us and not those that would manipulate them for their own ends.
Our shadows, made conscious and healed have the kind of power we really need to bring to bear on all the fear and confusion that is happening at this time.
I honor the light and the shadow within you all!
