Hard Time Womancraft

If you're going through a "shit hole of a time in your life" . . . 1) How can you, with lots of external support, be with the pain and stop reacting to it or running from it through old familiar behavior patterns? How can you sit with and explore the exact feeling or situation you've probably been desperately trying to avoid for years? 2) What does that pain connect to in your life, going back to childhood? Going back to your ancestors? How can you be with that part of you now and give that part your unconditional presence? How can you meet the needs of that part? 3) Write all of this down so you can understand it a bit better. Gain some perspective on it. 4) Now, looking at that narrative as a fable about a fabulous COURTESAN or Grande Dame, or historical personage, What would you LOVE to have happen in her story next? What is the juiciest juice you could possibly write into the movie script? 5) Live that. ❤️‍🔥 We are cyclical beings and we go through phases of being taken apart, and phases of renewal. ❤️‍🔥 When you are going through a phase of being taken apart, it can really feel like hell. Like a crucifixion. Like a “shithole of a time.” ❤️‍🔥 And it also really seems like whatever it is we were meant to do or become is being crafted in the background of these times of disintegration. ❤️‍🔥 It’s usually not what our ego was trying (sometimes really, really hard) to cook up. In fact, it’s that ego agenda (or the “small self”) that can really feel crucified at the darkest times of our lives (sometimes over and over again). And it really seems as though this happens so that that other part of us, our soul (or whatever you want to call it) can rise. ❤️‍🔥 Save or share if you or someone you know needs this message. 🙌 And reach out if this description of a "hard time" applies to you now and you need a little extra support to get through it.
