Each of us is born with particular lessons to learn and gifts to give. All of our unique characteristics, as well as our early childhood circumstances, provide us with what we need to learn those lessons and to give those gifts, but that is usually neither obvious nor seemingly important when we are in physical pain, mental confusion, or emotional turmoil.
As we come to consciousness we encounter and integrate our shadow, on the way releasing emotional blocks, learning to honor our physical bodies, and transforming and transcending limiting beliefs and behaviors from the past. The possibility of becoming more whole, more creative, and more free opens up to us, and we are increasingly able to live our lives from a place of deep connection to Self, to Others, and to the Divine. All that is necessary is to be willing to take the first step and to trust the process.
