Day Twenty Three : The Mirror of relationships. Light and Dark

‘Relationship means communion without fear, freedom to understand each other, to communicate directly.’

Everyone we encounter is a mirror of ourselves. What do you recognise in other people? Do you see truly or as you wish to be seen and see? When you understand what it is like to see your reflection, there is no room for blame, judgement, nor to feel like a victim of another’s actions or words.

There is only room for love based on understanding and gratitude.

Compromise comes easily, forgiveness and compassion makes way for inevitable growth. This truth applies to all of your relationships, your partner, family, friends and colleagues, and even to those you deem your ‘enemy’,

Love is a powerful force that inevitably brings to the surface the parts of ourselves that we desperately try to keep hidden. Being in a close and loving in a relationship provides powerful light and mirror that reflects back our greatest and darkest aspects, like any strong light it casts a large shadow. When you stand in the light of a close relationship, you will encounter the shadow. ‘The psychological rule says that when an inner situation is not made conscious, it happens outside as fate. That is to say, when the individual remains undivided and does not become conscious of his inner opposite, the world must perforce act out the conflict and be torn into opposing halves’ (Jung)

Aisha will be running a workshop

Embracing the shadow in relationships and unleashing your creative light; which will explore the concept of mirroring light and dark in relationships in depth on  23rd – 24th November in North London NW5.
