There’s been a LOT going on in the collective lately, and I wanted to see if I could address a few threads today. It felt like they became cohesive as I was lying awake at 3am. ~ N.B. This is a long one ~ I’m first going to start with a little about my own process, so that the way these posts come together might make some more sense. I am an intuitive empath, and pick up energies from the Earth and collective that are most active at different times. Sometimes it feels like a background buzz, with all kinds of things in the periphery of my awareness, and other times, one will come through loud and clear, perhaps riding the wave of a particular Continue reading Narcissim, Privilege and The Patriarchy→
This week a post I submitted to Rebelle Society just before Christmas (2016) has gone live. It’s called ‘Is Narcissism Inherent to the Patriarchy?‘ I love Rebelle Society and the writing on their site. It’s one of those places a year ago I wouldn’t have dared submit to. I felt I wasn’t a good enough writer, expressing the level of passion I saw on their pages. So, submitting and being published there shows me how far I’ve come in my own journey, which is always a nice gauge to have. (The post was actually written on 15 July, 2016, when an upsurge of this energy was active in the collective). Big Love, ~ Jenny
Over the past couple of years, I’ve spent a lot of time trying to understand the concept of responsibility and what it really means. I examined it through the perspective of the tarot, and came up with this: The root of responsibility is the ability to respond to any given situation as it arises. When we are in a state of abundance, acceptance and openness, we feel that innate capacity as the truth. Whatever presents itself to us can be met creatively, with joy. On the other hand, if we approach situations with an air of heaviness or duty, they become less dynamic and more likely to feel burdensome. In the belief that we can control the outcome of our actions and choices, we move Continue reading Self-responsibility: An Empath’s Super-power→
Out on a brief sojourn this morning, I was contemplating the concept of I AM. We’re told it’s the most powerful phrase in the Universe, and as I’m currently exploring the energy of narcissism through the video series, something became clear.
One of the prevalent experiences in the narcissist dynamic is projection, and if you conjugate the verb to be, you’ve got a pretty powerful projection tool. I am, you are, he/she/it is, we are, they are, you (pl) are. So anything you add after these words has the same impact as the powerful I AM statements we are encouraged to use as affirmations.
This is also a nod to the concept of Oneness; we could say that they all mean the same thing. When you say to someone else YOU ARE ____________, you’re actually saying I AM ___________. So it’s worth observing carefully what follows those words, because they’re a direct reflection of what’s in your field.
It also speaks again to the idea that healing begins within. We heal ourselves by addressing and acknowledging our own woundedness. We attain Oneness in the same way, by acknowledging the wounds of duality and healing the separation.
I’ve recently joined something called the Wisdom Bloggers Sisterhood, which is a group of women bloggers joining forces to cover a specific topic each month. November is all about creative self love, using Cheryl Bridges’ book ‘28 Days of Creative Self-Love’ as a tool to inspire us. The deadline for the November posts is today, and as often happens, I’m writing against the clock. I have all kinds of reasons (excuses) I could use for this, but as I sat and examined it, I realised I’m scared shitless of this topic. I’ve written about self-love before, numerous times, and the reasons it’s so important. I’ve explored it from a bunch of angles and delved into it as a rational exercise, understanding it and feeling it. Continue reading Boundaried Self-love→
