Honoring Our Gifts: Our Golden Shadow

We’ve talked about the Golden Shadow before. The basics: the Golden Shadow is all of those things we would benefit from using that we don’t claim. And I know what you’re thinking – if I don’t claim them, how do I know I have them? Here’s how I realized my Golden Shadow: I envied another woman

Honoring Our Gifts: Our Sage Archetype

We’re coming to the end of the 30 days of honoring our gifts and one of my favorite archetypes is the Sage Archetype because of the amount of gifts it offers us – whether we know it or not. Our Sage is our inner wisdom and intuition. It is the ancient piece of us that can see the big picture and offer us spiritual wisdom and for me, emotional support.

Honoring Our Gifts: Our Value

Our value. This can be pretty challenging if you don’t feel valuable or worthy within. I admit, there are days that I still struggle with value – especially when someone else contradicts what I believe about myself or says hurtful things.

Honoring Our Gifts: Shelter

Shelter may seem like a fundamental, and it is, however, I thought it impressive that this would come up the day after Black Friday. While we are shopping for things to fill the house, I think it’s also important to remember the gifts of what we already have.

However, I’ve asked for each challenging experience mentioned here and upon reflection of the experience I can see that I’ve received a gift from it which I am grateful for.

Honoring Our Gifts: Fool Archetype

The Fool Archetype is one that isn’t often talked about. It’s the archetype or energy in us that wants nothing more but to find the fun and the joy in the present situation.

The Fool has a lot of great qualities – they enjoy the journey of life regardless of where it leads,

Honoring Our Gifts: Inner Wisdom

Have you ever been humming along in life, making decisions, seeing people, and doing things when suddenly a strong internal sense of the situation arises? Thought forms begin to coalesce and suddenly you are seeing the situation from a different perspective, or your attitude adjusts and things don’t seem so dire. Perhaps you’ve been hearing some in

Honoring Our Gifts: Rewarding Experiences

Rewarding experiences bring us something which enriches our lives in some way. When the experience is over, there is a feeling of accomplishment. It doesn’t really matter what the belief or judgment is which makes the experience rewarding for you. There
