“………It’s about coming alive. It’s about waking up to the grace inherent in every moment.
It’s about unconditional friendliness and infinite kindness to yourself. It’s about making it safe, finally safe for all of those unloved, un-met, unseen waves of the ocean of yourself to crawl out of the depths, out of the darkness, out of the corners and holes and crevices of experience and come into the light, blinking and full of wonder..
It’s about giving birth to yourself, so that all thoughts are finally allowed to flood in, all sensations, all feelings, all sounds, all those waves that we used to label ‘dark’, or ‘evil’, or ‘negative’, or ‘dangerous’, or ‘sinful’ – fear, anger, boredom, doubt, confusion, frustration, helplessness……
are finally allowed to come to rest, to breathe, to be fully themselves in the space that you are. They are not separate entities or enemies, they are intimate appearances of you, and so they cannot hurt you, even if they hurt, and this is what we forget sometimes in our rush to ‘fix’ or at least ‘normalise’ ourselves.
Yes, all of those swirling, pulsating energies of that which we call ‘life’ are welcome in the unlimited room that you are, the vast Living Room in which all of creation sings and dances and paints itself into the ever-changing picture of this extraordinary moment…”
This sublime tender piece written by Jeff Foster is what true healing is about, it’s about becoming whole, it’s making peace with all the different parts of ourselves. Astrology is an articulate and poetic tool that can help us define some of these lesser known or demonised parts. Astrology charts show if the different parts of the psyche are talking (or shouting!) to each other or not. It reveals the qualities hiding in the recesses of our psyche. Often they are our potential gold and our allies. Time to treasure them!
