Today’s blog features a poem contributed by one of my clients (with her permission), Janet Fietz. Her poem came out of a creativity/meditation exercise I gave to her, similar to something that might appear in an Authentic Freedom class or something I might invite a client to do. The goal of the Authentic Freedom protocol (whether learned through a course or through one-on-one mentoring), is to give participants tools through which they can transcend and even heal the feelings and sensations Janet describes in her poem! I am happy to report that Janet is doing a great job getting “untrapped.” 🙂
My shadow self envelopes me,
Grasping silver threads of weaknesses,
And it’s a knowing, an awareness that has arrived.
The darkness knows me,
We are deceitful, faithful friends,
Breathe into my soul,
Take my life.
We are as one.
And it is me,
I am the darkness,
I’ve trapped myself.
