Wow! The first week of my Transforming Your Shadow telesummit just ended and what a week it was! Now is the time to reflect! What does it mean to live into a dream? Certainly not what I thought and yet so much more! More complex – rich, yeasty, meaty and more. Challenging – a stretch, an ache and a joy.
Transforming Your Shadow is a cheeky undertaking. Rather than offering quick fix solutions to all your problems or promises of wealth, love and happiness in 3 easy steps, it invites us all into a deeper understanding, a greater awareness – a process that entails confronting our pain, our suffering. Only the courageous sign up for such an undertaking and I’m learning to accept, only the courageous offer it. There I’ve said it out loud. I am bringing out of the shadows an aspect of myself I’ve seldom acknowledged – my courage.
So what was it like, you ask, to pull off a feat with so many moving parts?
Front and center were extraordinary moments AND gripping fears. The fears showed up around money – which we learned from Mayuri Onerheim, author of Money, Spirituality and Consciousness, arise from old family structures unconsciously taken on which never hit awareness. (And the social shadows surrounding money.) I got to work with those as I waited for people to purchase what I felt was a fount of wisdom and guidance for a very affordable investment.
Extraordinary moments wove through some of the interviews when a guest shared an insight in blazingly clear language that rushed listeners into an an ”aha”. Or when they provided an action step that had the audience saying, “Yes, I’m doing that, today.” Sometimes, the sigh of recognition wafted loudly, as a shadow element was described.
Other extraordinary moments occurred when I noticed, I was doing something challenging and new – running a control panel, interviewing people I greatly admired – choreographing the needs of the technology, the audience, the speaker and myself simultaneously for the first time ever, and enjoying myself. Who would have thunk it? I could even bring poetry into it – a joy!
As Gregg Levoy shared insights about the suffering in ignoring your calling and how to tune into the body’s whispering, and Rita Hovakimian told listeners the 4 Money Mirror types each held in emotion, beliefs and behaviors, emails and texts flooded in thanking me for providing this opportunity.
Yet there is more to come. We’ll be tuning into the suffering around of meaningful work, intimacy, leadership and parenting and bringing more consciousness to each in the coming week – and more after that.
I’m breathing deeply in appreciation and feel the enlivening energy flow as I contemplate what’s ahead. Yep, and I know that there are more lessons ahead, for me, my incredibly supportive team, the speakers and you, he audience.
Come join in the conversation – profound, fascinating, human.
