Falling apart is alchemical, a process of dis-memberment that promises repair, re-membering, and growth.
Re-membering what is important, what matters most, what you are called to attend to, what to love, what to share with others lovingly again and again.
Starting over again and again offers me continuous opportunities to play with, cycle through, spiral around what is not completely done with me.
Do you ever notice that the same issues keep coming up again and again?
What are the issues that you re-play over and over?
Throughout my life I keep spiraling around:
- Not Being Heard and Seen by Others
- Recurring Dreams of Betrayal, Woundedness, and Criticism
Being Seen and Heard
A few years ago I was in an ongoing dance group. During one dance someone in the group started to shout, I want to be seen and heard! This proclamation was followed by others until we were all shouting out what we needed most, I want to be seen and heard!
It seems there is a human need to be acknowledged. To be seen and heard. Really seen and heard for who we are and who we are becoming… (not for what others want us to be).
Recurring Dreams of Betrayal, Woundedness, and Criticism
For many years I have been receiving a recurring dream where other dream figures representative of my tribe criticize and berate me. I have just begun to write about my shadow (what is hidden from my conscious view) and how my recurring dreams are helping me to find my way to acceptance and forgiveness.
