Your fears can be your very own trap or prison, holding your happiness and dreams out of your reach. By inviting your demons to tea, you establish ownership of your shadow. You bravely go where many fear to tread. You have the guts to face your anger, fear, jealousy, lack of self-acceptance.
In order to be truly happy and content, it is important that you are honest about the kind of life that you are leading. Unless you face your demons, it will be impossible for you to achieve your full potential. You will always be held back by underlying issues that are yet to be resolved. If you are going to prevent this from happening, you will need to make a change.
It’s a battle that goes on inside all of us, whether it be our fears, sadness, anxiety, frustrations and disappointments tormenting us and preventing us from experiencing happiness, peace, love and hope. Just like with every battle there are two options: you can choose to hide from these demons and negative energies or you can choose to fight. Fear is has a huge role to play in facing your demons. You know the saying -Flight or fight? Do you know that without fear there will be no courage?
Ever experienced that period in your life that you would simply describe as dark? When all hope and light seems to fade and you find yourself surrounded by negativity with no help in sight? Times where you may feel abandoned, lonely, sad, a sense of dread, even fear. At the time you couldn’t even imagine what the world once looked like to you and all you see now is the inevitable doom that humanity faces. At the time it can be an overwhelming experience that can often shake us to the very core…but handled correctly, it can actually be a very beneficial and life altering experience. It usually is a divine message to you, if you pay attention.
You may be wondering how that could possibly be the case. How could somebody showing dark night of the soul symptoms possibly come out the other side in a positive manner? Surely the entire experience is soul destroying? Well, while it is true that the experience is challenging and many people do come out the other side feeling defeated, it can be used as a form of spiritual healing or therapy.
You must have heard about the power of communication. “Communication is key”, Whether you believe it or not self communication is the golden key. When you go through an experience, it usually is because you need to grow, wake-up, learn or teach lessons from that experience. You achieve this by communicating genuinely with your self. By facing your demons, by looking at yourself exactly as you are, Ask yourself how you feel and why you feel how you feel ? Allow the emotions to flow, they are answers. It is very healing and therapeutic. Every being has to go through this to evolve and come out on the other side. However,there are beings who will not evolve and that’s okay. There are beings who prefer the cycle they are experiencing because it’s familiar to them. Spiritual growth is an unfamiliar territory which is uncomfortable. It’s not for everyone.
Demons are described as crazy, scary monsters, just like the scary crazy habits, thoughts, feelings that you have. If you were to describe those dark feelings and thoughts you had, as an item or a person what would it be?Everyone has the yin and yang. To face your demons is to look in the mirror. it’s time to see your truest nature and be it. It requires vulnerability. Just as I wrote on my last post, The dark night of the soul . If the universe could speak right now, with all that you see happening on the “surface” ( YANG), in our society today? The universe is saying loud and clear , now is the time when you literally face your demons (the habits, patterns, contracts, energies) that has been destroying and delaying your authenticity. The ones you refuse to accept about yourself. These demons have a role to play in your evolution so you should not run away from facing them. There comes a time where you will be forced to face them, accept them, forgive yourself and evolve. When would you rather do that?
Fear is a tool. Use it to your advantage. “Without fear, there will be no courage”.
