Marie T. Russell's Daily Inspiration

The focus for today is:  I reclaim my lost selves with love and restore my internal harmony.

We all have a shadow self, or selves. This is the part of ourselves that we do not acknowledge, that we deny exists. We pretend it isn't there, yet as with a smoldering fire, you may not see flames, but the heavy smell of the smoke persists. When we add fuel (or light) to a smoldering fire, the flames jump back to life, and the fire becomes vibrant with light and energy.

We can gain some understanding and insights from the Lakota Sweat Lodge card for the Shadow Self:

"I am the one you choose not to see. I am caught, trapped, unnoticed, unable to change because I am without recognition. I am unloved and unnurtured because I am unseen. I am powerless to move on without your help. Bring me into the World of Light with your attention. Guide me on my path. Love me."

It is time for us to acknowledge, accept, and love our shadow. It is not "bad". It simply needs acceptance and healing. We can reclaim our lost selves with love and restore our internal harmony. 

Today's Daily Inspiration is excerpted from the InnerSelf.com article:

Living in Harmony with Reverence for All

Today, we reclaim our lost selves with love and restore our internal harmony.

by Chief Archie Fire Lame Deer and Helene Sarkis.

cover art of The Lakota Sweat Lodge Cards: Spiritual Teachings of the Sioux by Chief Archie Fire Lame Deer and Helene Sarkis.This book and beautifully illustrated deck draw on the ancient Lakota ritual of healing and purification known as the sacred Inipi, or sweat lodge ceremony, which has existed in the Lakota culture for thousands of years.

The cards and accompanying book comprise a self-contained and highly original system that will help you harness creative energies to deal with issues that are of concern in your life. Used for self-discovery rather than divination, the cards gently guide you toward inner growth and self-knowledge in the time-honored tradition of the Lakota people.
