She’s relentless, consistent in her pursuit to get back home.
She’ll keep on knocking the door until you open and accept, embrace her wholeheartedly with unconditional love.
The traits we form, accept and identify with to get external love, validation, acceptance, adoration from ‘others’ is put under the label of good and our 'owned SELVES'.
But along with it, as duality is the law of the universe, an exact opposite of that trait/SELF is also birthed.
This is our "shadow/disowned SELF".
Also whoever we disapprove of, hate, judge and point fingers at are our own projected 'shadow/disowned/unaccepted SELVES'.
The unidentified characteristics are disowned, repressed, judged, banned, ridiculed and shunned away from our psyche because it's ugly, dark, wrong and unwanted.
Our righteousness refuses it to be considered as our own!
The more we push it away with our labelling/judgment, the harder its effort will be to be accepted in our lives!
The banished inner child (our disowned SELF) returns home with vengeance and entitlement for its right place in our lives.
This is where she was birthed, this where she belongs, this is where she'll stay!
E.g., if I have chosen to be an ‘honest’ person, the traits of dishonesty are present beneath it albeit repressed and unaccepted.
So we’ll keep on meeting dishonest people in our journey.
Also, we need to contemplate on where are WE being ‘dishonest’.
This soul searching is brutal and hits us below the belt!
I am THAT whatever I’m condemning and pointing finger at!
It had been ME vs ME all along.
The triggering energy is our banished inner child who is desperately seeking to get back ‘home’ to its ‘parents’.
She's seeking for her entitled place and needs to be loved unconditionally.
Our heart is its ‘HOME’ and we are its 'PARENTS'!
The child’s been roaming for alms of being validated, accepted, loved, cherished, validated, celebrated by OTHERS…
But that's in vain as her bowl is still empty...how can a hologram/projection fill the bowl?
She’s unkempt and ugly, she’s covered in filth and reeking of stench...
Sitting in silence and interrogating ourselves...who is inside me that wants external validation?
In what ways have I not acknowledged and met my needs?
In what ways have I neglected, abandoned, lost myself?
In what ways I'm not accepting my internal struggle of guilt & shame?
In what ways am I judging and condemning OTHERS?
She’s your child, a younger YOU desperately seeking to return home i.e. your heart.
Open the door to her, embrace and hold her in your arms and let her bask in your unconditional love!
She’s safe now.
She can rest now.
She can be herself now.
YOU integrate with YOU
