Shadow work is messy, and ugly and frightening and painful and, in my opinion necessary if one is to evolve. But my own shadow work was not the original intention of this blog, although my exploration of gender, sexuality and identity has most definitely resulted in that work.
I have reached a point in this process where I need the assistance of someone who has a better understanding of shadow and who can help me to do the work to heal “Pluto’s child” as well as to find healthy ways to allow the “Other” to be expressed.
Most of the impulses of the Other are not necessary (nor are those behaviors acceptable to me, not do I allow them to be indulged) but some parts of her must be allowed to exist because, Anger, Fear, Pain and Rebellion are normal and necessary experiences for a human being.
I hope to learn healthy ways to experience those things and to finally put the thoughts that do not serve our higher good to rest. I had successfully lived for two decades without having those thoughts and I will again, but this time it will be because I did the work to resolve them and not because I shut everything down.
I also find myself in a place on my journey where my exploration of my sexuality has become secondary to my exploration of Love. Love is the greater question for me, the greater mystery. And a mystery I find to be of great importance.
And so, this blog will be refocused on other questions of identity, questions of gender expression and Love. Thank you for walking with me. I hope you will find the mystery as valuable as I do. Blessed Be.
