WEEK 20 Shadow Me

~Charles Hannel: Lesson 20: 9-11

9. But perception will come only in the Silence; this seems to be the condition required for all great purposes. You are a visualizing entity. Imagination is your workshop. It is here that your ideal is to be visualized. 

10.  As a perfect understanding of the nature of this power is a primary condition for its manifestation, visualize the entire method over and over again, so that you may use it whenever occasion requires. The infinity of wisdom is to follow the method whereby we may have the inspiration of the omnipotent Universal Mind on demand at any time.

11. We can fail to recognize this world within, and so exclude it from our
consciousness, but it will still be the basic fact of all existence;  and when we learn to recognize it, not only in ourselves but in all persons, events, things and
circumstances we shall have found the “Kingdom of heaven” which we are told  is “within” us.


This week I have had trouble concentrating and staying focus as I work on transmuting fear, anger, sadness, guilt e.g. emotion into a tool I can use.  Trouble focusing on anything really.   I have had trouble going to sleep and staying asleep.  And when I do sleep I have restless, shadowy or spooky dreams or sleep only one or two hours and then I’m up.  I recognize this is my “subby” communicating with me or avoiding it.  I cannot decide.

I have also felt sluggish and at times not well.  I have decided to put more concentration into my Sit or maybe Sits.  Something is going on, on the inside, and I need to take the plunge into the depth of “psyche” and find the bliss of wholeness, harmony, and power.

Note:  This is a rough 1st draft of a prose I’m working on and decided to share it in its rough form.  I need to put more thought into the “word images” I want to convey, so this may change from the original concept.

In the silence of my world within.

My Shadow waits.

As I stroll the gardens and beaches of my mind’s eye alone.

The Shadow waits.

In the meadow fields surrounded by majestic mountains, I embrace “elan vital” dancing with sunshine’s light or cool misty heaven’s rain.

And the Shadow waits.

Nature’s music calls and sings to me.  I rejoice.  I play in the redwoods of my mind, climbing, swinging, exploring, and jumping, searching…

The Shadow waits.

At the sea, I build sandcastle’s, stroll along the waters edge, splash and ride the waves in joy, or lay peacefully in the hammock suspended in the palms trees as the ocean’s lullaby soothes my soul.

Yet the Shadow waits.

Night falls, I dance under the starry domed sky lit by the huge moon smiling down on my world.  I reach.  My face turned to the heavens.  Arms in the air above my head I shout with delight twirling, twirling,  twirling remembering joy is life.

The Shadow moves freely and invisibly through the night.  The ground shakes.  Storm clouds hover overhead blocking the moonlight.  The lonely howl of a wounded creature permeates the air that weighs like cotton on my skin.

I’m not alone.  I turn just as the moon peek’s out to light my way.  I’m face to face with the Shadow.  Dark tears glisten as diamonds sliding down smokey cheeks.

I lift my hand to offer comfort.  Shadow mimics me. My hand floats though smoke but shadows hand gently caresses my cheek.

Hand against hand, in mirrored synchronicity…

We start to dance. We weave.  We twirl, we spin in fluid grace.  It’s a dance of wonder and discovery.   Shadow Me.

This is one of my favorite Lindsey Stirling songs, Shadows.

  2. I, too, have had many restless early mornings, I am up every hour or so. When we started this back in Sept., I had reached a point in my life where I wasn’t dreaming anymore. This concerned me. I’ve always dreamed. Now, I can’t seem to stop. LOL. When I do awake, Subby is constantly thinking of everything we are learning here. It’s like a non-stop flight! 🙂
