God, the Thorn in my Side- Unraveling our Childhood Gods

I have a story to share.

This story starts with a Facebook post I made after finishing a session with a client.

“When our parents aren’t safe, available, loving gods, we become vigilant and over responsible gods, thinking it’s all up to us, with wounds in our hearts.”

It’s been a long time coming, sharing this publicly. I’d experienced it in myself, and had been seeing it with my clients for years. It has been such a pivotal part of my embodiment journey that I’m currently writing a book about it – yet never blogged about it.

The Dark Night of the Soul online book launch

 

At this online book launch, Jen and Fiona talk about many aspects of the dark night of the soul, including the falling apart of the mask or adapted self, the pull to withdraw from the matrix of oppression, the challenge of staying with our nervous systems, and the richness of deep honesty. This discussion will be of interest to anyone who is going through or has gone through a dark night of the soul, spiritual emergency or crisis, or some kind of awakening journey.

He replied, angrily and brim-full of conviction: “I know that’s how it is, because I AM RIGHT!”

Wisdom or Idiocy? How to Move Beyond Sound-Byte Spirituality & Blind Convictions.

A few years ago, during the bedraggled final tatters of our relationship, my ex-partner and I were out walking our dog when we got into yet another heated argument.

I can’t even remember now what we were disagreeing about, but as he asserted his view I asked, “But how do you know that’s actually the case?” (Even then, I knew how to ask questions that would piss people off.)

He replied, angrily and brim-full of conviction: “I know that’s how it is, because I am right!”
