The Healing of Self-Blame and Judgment
As one awakens to the Truth within as we walk the Path, the journey, and wake from the slumber of separation from parts of self and step into full union with self and Divinity, the resulting self-forgiveness allows one to move forward in wholeness without the false archetype of perfection. When blame and self-judgment are transformed, healed, and cease to be, we have reawakened without the myth, “the mythos,” of separation from Source. We come to understand that Divinity and “all that is” is within the self.
All things can heal by opening the heart into forgiveness and love rather than being in a place of suppression due to grief or fear held on the conscious, subconscious, or even unconscious levels of being. Unresolved grief, shame and fear can accumulate throughout one’s life, and impede, constrict, and block the natural flow of energy in the subtle bodies. We all come into being with infinite love; a wholeness of the heart that lacks suppression. In separation from Source or ‘all that is’, there is a closing down of the heart that stagnates one’s authentic self as past shrouded impressions have become blocked energy. Constriction of the heart energy imprints a marked influence on how life is perceived as one projects past obscured and limiting impressions into the future as guideposts, and this, inherently, disengages one in the now. Liberating and strengthening fundamental heart energy enables an untethering and our authentic self to remember that oneness is the union of the now and always. This true self-reunion is a remembering and reawakening that reveals itself with uncomplicated Universal Truths.
Invocation for Peace
Together let us hold the intention that all aspects of this living planet come together in love, acceptance, and celebration of both our diversities and commonalities. Let us possess the common purpose that we heal from our hearts into compassion and forgiveness for ourselves. Together let us own the belief that we will no longer unite with blame and judgment, but come to accept that we all carry the same wounds. In acknowledging this, the hope is for the whole planet in its jubilant diversity to be healed from any and all wounds so that we come together on equal footing, living in peace and joy and setting the tone for a future of harmony within and on this planet. Peace to all and healing to all.

In our fast-paced modern reality, there is a renewed awareness of our oneness with all humanity, nature, the cosmos and the Divine. As we remember and re-awaken from the illusory separation of self, love and Divinity, we must reconcile with self-blame and judgment. It is in the healing of self-blame and judgment that the self is liberated from the constraints of binding emotions and one comes to remember the true authentic self. Hindering emotions like shame must be replaced with self-responsibility. Self-examination does not involve judgment or self-blame; rather it allows one to approach forgiveness and begin to understand that compassion starts with the self. It is only when one has found true empathy and forgiveness of the self that one can radiate compassion to others. In the process of this inner healing, one begins to see that inner compassion emanates out to others with an increasingly less comparative and judgmental stance. The self, love, and Divinity become progressively evident and commence to come into full union when one releases judgments, labels and comparatives. The spiritual and Divinity are always present even in the seemingly mundane. This knowing is cloaked by self-judgment and self-blame, and when these hampering qualities are hidden, allusions distort and project out from the ego onto others. It is one-by-one as we heal and come into unity and oneness that we may then impart compassion together as an increasingly larger unified frequency. It is through self-compassion that we connect to Divinity and then, without effort, may emanate forgiveness and love so that others, too, may remember the union of the self and Divinity resides within all.
My own journey of inner transformation and self-reconciliation is expressed in my creation of The Traduka Wisdom Poetry Series®. The poetry is the expression and integration of the inner dialogue with Divinity and the spiritual journey of self-discovery through vision quests, spiritual awakenings, and the dark night of the soul. The words reflect deeply on both the hidden and revealed relationship of nature, the cosmos, humanity and the healing of archetypes both esoteric and known in the individual and collective psyche. The poetic formulas are both wisdom and method; a sharing of words that open doors and invite readers on their own spiritual evolution and journey of awakening, inner transformation and healing to remember their own inner wisdom. The true continent of one’s authentic self will be revealed and formed as the poetry guides one through the geology and geography of one’s soul, and one’s inner wisdom and Truth remember that the separation of self, love, and Divinity is merely an illusion.

Of these sounds:
A train, lizards in the bush,
Distant religious music
Loud enough for me
To chant with,
Celebration of voices
Rising up into the sky
Simplicity with sitar
Climbing with the moon,
A lute and the stars
All become you
