I will admit that during my daily meditations, I sometimes feel as though I’m doing it wrong. Often, I notice a place of constriction, usually in my belly, that just won’t surrender into easy flow. And because it doesn’t feel like love and light, part of me wants to make it wrong.
This making it wrong, however, only serves to cloud my meditation with feelings of self doubt, and worry. Exactly what I’m trying to avoid. My resistance to my constriction only heightens the feeling of wrong.
And then, I remember what I’ve told myself, and my clients, so many times. This dark place within me is calling for love. Calling for my embrace of unconditional acceptance.
That little girl inside, hiding in the dark, afraid of her own power. Afraid to unravel and illuminate her light.
She waits patiently, persistently. I feel the pain of her clench.
So this time, I stay long enough and listen closely enough. And I understand: she’s waiting for my help.
It’s when, and only when, I embrace her deeply with love and acceptance, that she begins to unravel. That she summons the courage to re-ignite her light.
It happens every time. When I embrace the place I’m judging, and hiding, I get the shift I’m longing for.
In this world filled with judgment and competition, it can feel impossible to accept our darkest places. But resisting our darkness only grows it’s persistence.
No matter how inconvenient, annoying, painful, unfair, or embarrassing, your dark places are always calling for your unconditional love.
It’s in the embrace that you see your light, hidden beneath the clouds of judgement.
It’s been there all along, waiting for your return.
