Sharing is caring!
If you’re plagued by bottling up all the messy emotions, get started, Using your inner darkness to awaken your light.
Do you feel that others don’t really understand who you are?
How strong and powerful do you actually feel within yourself?
How much potential you can share?
How much pain have you endured?
How big your heart is?
How deep do your emotions run?
What can you really do?
People don’t know what you can do because you haven’t given them a glimpse of your inner chaos yet.
You only let them see your perfect image, you don’t let them peak into your darkness, your flaws, pains and mistakes.
This is why most of us feel like we can’t connect with others. We only want them an edited version of ourselves Show up, not our true selves.
Our darkness is what actually creates the deepest connections with others, our mistakes, not our perfections.
Making mistakes is not your end, rather it is the beginning of your journey, To find your hidden genius and unleash your true potential and awaken your light.
Stop thinking about what you did wrong. Lick your wounds if you must. Then move on. Believe in your power and start becoming the person you are meant to be.
And most importantly, do not deny your darkness. That’s the other side of your whole. You can’t be your true whole self without both your darkness and your light.
3 Ways you can use the darkness to awaken your light:
1. Embrace uncertainty and fear your compass.
Seneca says, that the whole universe is in uncertainty. If that’s the case, why not be brave and do things that not everyone does?
Do what your heart wants you to do because your intention is in it. Yes, you will be afraid and face unknown territories, but no one can run away from the fact.
Fear and uncertainty are there forever. They will always be there, no matter what you do, and no matter how big the walls you build around yourself are.
Just look at us, we live in societies that are more protected than ever, and we are more afraid than ever.
So instead of running away from fear and uncertainty, embrace it. Use them.
You feel fear only in moments that matter, moments that have the potential to make or break you.
So use fear as a compass to point you in the direction to grow. When you’re afraid, just remind yourself that this is important, that this matters to you.
Thank your fear for letting you know where to stretch your comfort zone. This is how you can awaken your light.
2. Use your pain to create art.
Turn your pain into immortal art, as Ernest Becker did "Immortality project" calls.
There are so many ways you can turn your art into an artistic endeavor. You can write soulful songs, create inspiring films, write moving poetry, or create a life-changing book.
You can also support foundations or help the environment.
The purpose is, Turn your pain into something useful, something that can inspire others. Alchemize your darkness into a beautiful fruit that the world can use.
Whatever you put your hands into, don’t be afraid if it’s good or bad as long as it helps in your healthy transformation. The process may bring back the pain you once experienced, but in that heroic commitment you actually find the meaning, purpose and significance of your life.
3. Face your shadows and make friends with your demons.
Both the worlds of darkness and light exist within you. Therefore, from time to time you will be confronted with your shadows and your darkness. While these things are usually portrayed as bad, they are part of your nature, just as your light is. And the key to not letting them control you is really counter-intuitive that most people do the opposite and end up doing terrible things. Not everyone knows that facing those inner shadows and demons, rather than running from them, is the only way to break free from their grip on you. These inner demons arise from your wounds, and by avoiding them, you hurt yourself over and over again in the same way.
The truth is that their mere presence only suggests that there is a part of you that needs healing, some kind of blockage that is preventing you from moving forward and awakening your light. Sometimes, if you thoughtlessly avoid these wounds, you might even hurt other people around you who love you and want the best for you. But if you face your shadows and demons, if you stop being afraid of them, you will realize that they are actually messengers. They are there to show you what needs healing. They were never against you, your fear has made you see these inner forces as monsters. Once you have reconciled and healed what needs healing, they will no longer have the power to haunt you again. And the only way to do that is, Love yourself unconditionally. Loving yourself, loving your whole self, both your darkness and your light unconditionally, is the only way that transforms these shadows to become your best allies. Are you ready to awaken your light?
