Re: Affirmation and Quotes

"When we have been in a state of overcoming for much of our lives, it can be difficult to surrender to the fact that there is no longer anything to overcome.

Wilfull overcoming and goal-centeredness become an entrenched way of being- one that is associated with our very survival- and it can be difficult to slow down and realize that we made it out.

That we are no longer at risk. That we created a healthier, safer reality.

This is as true for people who overcame poverty as it is those who made it out of unsafe home environments.

Many of us- and I am one of them- have great difficulty recognizing and integrating the fact that we are no longer back there.

Our minds know we got out, but our animal bodies are still carrying the same anxieties that fueled our overcoming.

In my own experience, the key to the shift in awareness is developing our capacity for surrender to our bodies.

Only when we can drop down below our willful warrior, only when we can slow down and truly FEEL the change, will we be able to integrate the fact that we are no longer back there.

For us to know the war is over, we have to allow ourselves to breathe deeply into the beautiful world that we have created with our own efforts.

We have to raise the white flag in our hearts. This is no easy feat- surrendering brings up the old anxieties at first- but if we stay with it, it will become a natural way of being. And the wars of overcoming, slowly a thing of the past." ~Jeff Brown

Pain is not an illusion- its as real as real gets. I try to never forget how good it felt to cry as a child. At the end of the release, I had new eyes and a regained freshness of appreciation.

And I also try to never forget what it has feels like to repress tears as an adult. I feel agitated, disconnected and ultimately depressed. I think of depression as frozen feeling.

When I thaw them out by feeling and releasing them, the depression lifts. It's not the pain that will kill us. It's all the efforts that we make to pretend its gone. The feel is for real." ~Jeff Brown
Whoah, that's a really good quote.

I tend to internalize my feelings, not deal with them, and distract myself as much as I can from them.

I guess it's scary because I can have big emotions sometimes.

Thank you for this.

*Edit* I decided to focus on the pain I was feeling, I guess I was stuffing some stuff down all day. I felt an immediate release when my awareness shifted to actually feeling. Wow. Thank you. It's not as scary as I thought.

It was scary as crap at first, but it's amazingly powerful and healing. Thanks for sharing your experience in trying it out.

Re: Affirmation and Quotes

"Sometimes we forget how far we have traveled while we are looking ahead to the next steps.

Good to lie down and remember what it took to get this far, all those karmic hoops we had to jump through, all those overcomings.

Good to stroke our face with love and to remind ourselves how much courage it took and who we would have become if we hadn’t braved the journey.

Good to say ‘thank you’ to the inner spirit that walks within and beside us, whispering sweet somethings in our inner ear, reminding us that we are simply and utterly worth fighting for.

We ARE simply and utterly worth fighting for." ~Jeff Brown

Re: Affirmation and Quotes

"Once I've been given a dream answer or, in many cases, a poetic refining of my question, I look for ways to dream it forward. To fully acknowledge a dream means finding ways to walk it in the world: to materialise the ineffable.



Maybe this just means carrying your symbol in your heart, letting it change the way you see things, or maybe you'll render the dream in paints or song. Perhaps you'll fashion an altar for your animal helpers, or maybe you'll even take the risk you've been prompted to take, stepping further in the direction you know you've been nudged.


Dreams make the inner life substantial, giving it dimensionality, colour and form. Ritual is the further enfleshment of the unseen; a way of feeding that which is nourishing you so that your living conversation with the holy in nature grows in strength and vocabulary. " ~Toko-pa Turner
