Warning - the contents of this video may be hard to hear and acknowledge. That's ok. That is where self love comes in. You are not wrong or bad, you are hurting and that's not your fault. Be gentle on you as you listen to this.
The world is full of suffering right now - as it always has been. At the same time we are seeing a LOT of uprising in communities that have been deeply traumatized by a system that is set up to give them less of a chance at finding happiness and success than others.
With this uprising, is coming the reaction from the love and light communities:
‘You just need to empower yourself.’
‘Your anger is immature, you need to express yourself differently.’
‘Can’t you see that you’re being manipulated? This anger, aggression, expression - it’s all wrong and you need to change.’
Either that or we are feeling overwhelmed, and projecting that overwhelm onto others by simply shutting down or running away from what we are seeing.
This kind of reaction is NOT a love and light reaction. This is spiritual bypassing and gaslighting at it’s finest.
I don’t believe we are doing it on purpose - but many of us don’t know what it really means to hold space for pain. To process pain. To go into SELF LOVE and to MATURE the hurting parts of ourselves into wellness. And we are taking our lack of capacity to do this work in our own lives and projecting it onto others.
Today I want to present an alternative to these kinds of reactions. I want to support you in supporting yourself through your own pain, so that you can then become a good support for the pain others are in.
The world does need to change, and we can help. But we have to be actually emotionally mature enough to do so. This is how we get there.
