Dancing in the Dark

42 Days of Teresa – Day 31

I was reading about the healing energy that can come from embracing the shadows that we all have.  It occurred to me that we spend a lot of time trying to constantly connect with the “light” energy.  I realized that I have hard time with all the notions of finding happiness by focussing on only the positive in everything.  There is positive in everything but there is also darkness. There is the balance.  I am comfortable with the dark side of things.  I can go there, look around and still see a beauty in this space.  It’s not scary or overwhelming for me.  In this, I can visit often and bring what I have felt, seen and learned over to the softer, light aspects of my life. Shadows and light can be intertwined without trying to smother each other.

I find a lot of peace in this.  I feel blessed to be able to help others find that balance.  This clarity has brought me a lot of joy in recent weeks.
