Something that we, each of us, have a degree of both fear and fascination about… I’d love to know what you think about the questions posed in my Insta post!

Let's talk about death. In every one of us there is some degree of fear as well as fascination when it comes to death. The big fear primarily falls where the idea of death is singular. The idea of life… and then death. Done. I am hoping to shed a little light in terms of the symbolic meaning of death, particularly as it applies to astrology, tarot, analytical psychology, dream analysis and Shadow integration; but also as it applies to our physical beings. Death is merely the END needed in order to begin something new. An example that I often use in sessions is; when an infant is born, there has been a symbolic death of the fetus. The cycle is; life/death/rebirth, or beginning/ending/transformation. It is never just the two separate phases of LIFE and DEATH. It is a continuous loop or spiral, where one morphs into the other. Shadow integration is a death within this cycle, which allows for the rebirth or… transformation. The death of things such as self-sabotaging patterns, critical judgements, explosive triggers, uncertainty, self-rejection, miserable relationships, suffering and in famous 6th House lingo… “stuckness”. When we take power away from these things in our lives, as the divine beings that we are, we enable ourselves to transform. Each little death, each integration, brings us closer to the wholeness that we strive toward when doing this powerful soul dance with our Shadows. What are your fears and fascinations surrounding death? What things come up from your depths when you think about endings? Is there something inside of you that feels as though needs to die in order for you to live more fully? Be curious. Be courageous. Be well. #shadowworker #transformations #shadowintegration ##death #rebirth #transform #digdeeper #shadowcoaching #shadowcoach #wellness #wellnesscoach #holisticapproach #soulworker #souldeep #holistichealing #fearless #lessfear #symbolism #tarotcards #astrology #depthpsychology #analyticalpsychology #fascination #dotheworkdaily #healingtrauma #bewell #magic #magicmaker #settingtrends

Thank you for the kind mention in this thoughtful post, Mary.
My best friend died years ago, only 24 years old. Her death made my think a lot and transformed my life & thinking in many ways…
