3/5 Dance Theme: Shadows No More

“I was beginning to see these storms {Shadows brought to light} as a harbinger to transformation. Perhaps change only takes place when there is sufficient reason to overcome the inertia of everyday life.   Challenging situations create the force needed to bring about change.
The problem is that we generally use all the stirred-up energy intended to bring about change,
to resist it.”

“The Surrender Experiment” ~ Michael Singer
{brackets my addition}


A word that keeps coming up around me, especially this time of year with Lent (in the word Sin) and the Spring Rituals beginning.

The word feels heavy and in many ways, traumatizing. It feels like many wear this idea of Shadow like a well worn badge of honor ~ entering the room or conversation with their Shadow story way before the real them shows up.

I wish to Dance a different way with my Shadows – based on Michael’s wisdom. As I walk my own Surrender Experiment with my life and my Shadows – I am finding that there is a different path.

One of embracing my Shadows with all the excitement of a young kid on Christmas day.

For in finding my Shadows, I find the inertia to change my stories and my habits.

Which means I can change my behavior and my relationships, first to Self, my Beloved.

Which means I can reclaim more of my already Wholeness that I Am.

Which means I can live with more zest and “F**K Yes!” for life.

How would your Dance with Life change if you changed the way you approach your Shadow discoveries?

If you embraced uncovering your Shadows as a place of excitement because it means there is inertia to change?!

If you made this your story so that Shadows are No More?

How would you then live your life?

Groovy tunes and a barefoot boogie? Who knew being an adult could still be so much fun!
