The dark or the 'not so light' is all the words of the night.... fear, anger, regret, hate, abuse, rage, shame, judgements, lack of forgiveness, blame, guilt, dependencies/addictions, repressed grief or sadness......anything or anyplace where we with-hold love from ourselves and anywhere we resist simply feeling what's there.
One of the ways it shows up is in the body....as PAIN.
Why would we want to go into the pain or the dismembered parts of ourselves during a massage? Because undiscovered truth and freedom are found within the places where we with-hold Love and conscious awareness from ourselves ......and because...
the way out is in.
Inside, below our awareness, we are layered with pains we haven't wanted to feel, dismembered parts we haven't accepted, reactions to these parts and pains and habits and patterns to distract ourselves away from them.
These arise as sensations that we don't like and don't want, but if we allow ourselves to feel these sensations or pains when they surface - bravely surrendered to whatever is there - through feeling them fully in our bodies, without resistance or judgement, they will transform......and so will you!
Your gift in being willing to feel your own pain... is --- it automatically and instantly increases your Peace ! :)
