This fell in front of me… The Universe never ceases! I’ve been reading a really great book, The Dance of Anger by Harriet Lerner, and this release was very timely!
(~an excerpt from the ‘Sacred Feminine Rising’ course- ready for download this week)
“If I try to paint a picture of self-loving possibility for women who have been abused or deeply disappointed by the masculine, it is simply this. You wouldn’t carry forward any sense of blame for anyone else’s actions- you would not be personalizing what isn’t yours. You would take responsibility for your own actions- but only your actions-, and not in a way that is self-hating or over-accountable. You would have come through the experience or experiences with tremendous self-love, forgiving yourself for anything you feel you put yourself through- for example staying too long in a situation that your intuition was telling you not to. You would be feeling compassion for yourself and nurturing yourself through any pain that lingers. AND you would be walking through life with your head held high and your heart healthily boundaried- open, but boundaried- unwilling to remain closed to life and its delicious possibilities because of difficult past experiences.” ~ Jeff Brown
