There was a fragrance called Obsession that was popular in the mid-80’s. I never cared for it. This isn’t about that. This is about humanity’s obsession with light and shadow and our ongoing attempt to eradicate the shadow, leaving only the light.
News flash from the Animals: When we remain focused on this duality we continually reinforce its existence. In other words, the two work together, actually. Only by embracing the shadow do we have an opportunity to shift its vibration. Not only that, our fear of shadow prevents us from actually transmuting it into light. Which is entirely possible – I’ve done it before and so, I suspect, have you. It’s why we’re all here on planet Earth, a very interesting galactic petri dish. In an effort to separate ourselves out from that which we deemed unacceptable – the shadow occurring in Nature – we created a schism within and without. One where imbalance reigns supreme. Because there is a constant tug-of-war going on between perception of light and shadow and how we are affected by this duality. A duality that we’ll do pretty much anything to escape. Which we can’t until we transition.
To complicate matters further, there really isn’t even a “we” among humans, except the Queen’s “we” used when one is being facetious. There is no other species on Earth whose members actually focus on what makes them different than what unifies them. The Animals are mystified by this, completely so. How, they ask, can you except to survive as a species, if your first thought isn’t about how healthy the herd, pack or flock is as a whole? Where every single member is embraced and supported in their quest for happiness and health. All within one species which is one race.
And the Animals will tell you that the hardest part about this shadow is that you’re invited – sometimes it feels forced – to gaze upon your own part individually and collectively that you play in creating shadow. Oh, yeah, that’s part of the gig on Earth. Our union stretches so far, wide and deep that you are not ever separate from light and therefore, shadow. And rather than fixate on how to have one over the other the Animals and I invite you – to breathe. To rest on the edge of exquisite balance between the two. And know how powerful you are in raising vibration wherever you are and wherever you go. You take your light with you and no one – especially not shadow – can take it from you. Step into the dark places you fear to find your light. It is there waiting for your steady hand to fan its eternal flame.
