Each creature of the dark holds a spark of our light.
We cannot unlock each spark if we don’t get to know these creatures, if we keep avoiding them or locking them out of our lives – if we remain in the periphery of our darkness. We cannot unlock each spark until we set each creature free.
If we continue to disown our own fears, shame, guilt, pain and all emotions and urges we label as taboo, we will continue to be in captivity. They will continue running the show for us in the background. Each spark they hold longs to burn bright.
Setting these creatures free is not about creating more of them. For instance, setting “fear” free isn’t about spreading more fear and allowing it to grow. Doing so actually only holds it in place, keeping it stuck.
Setting these creatures free is all about basking them in the light of our awareness. It’s seeing them for what they truly are and who we truly are. It’s about making choices that allow who we truly are to show up. Under our light, the shell of these creatures will naturally dissolve to reveal the spark they hold.
