A Quote by Shakti Gawain on acceptance, avoidance, and wisdom

We avoid the things that we're afraid of because we think there will be dire consequences if we confront them. But the truly dire consequences in our lives come from avoiding things that we need to learn about or discover.

A Quote by Shakti Gawain on evil, shadow, and light

Evil (ignorance) is like a shadow. It has no real substance of its own, it is simply a lack of light. You cannot cause a shadow to disappear by trying to fight it, stamp on it, by railing against it, or any other form of emotional or physical resistance. In order to cause a shadow to disappear, you must shine light on it.

A Quote by Shakti Gawain on relationships, healing, self-love, and confidence

My Primary Relationship is With Myself
My primary relationship is with myself- all others are mirrors of it. As I learn to love myself, I automatically recieve the love and appreciation that I desire from others. If I am commited to myself and to living my truth, I will attract others with equal commitment. My willingness to be intimate with my own deep feelings creates the space for intimacy with another.

As I learn to love myself, I recieve the love I desire from others.

A Quote by Shakti Gawain on channel, channeling, and creativity

Every creative genius has been a channel.  Every masterwork has been created through the channeling process.  Great works are not created by the personality alone.  They arise from a deep inspiration on the universal level, and are then expressed and brought into form through the individual personality.

A Quote by Shakti Gawain on transformation, old habits, and old patterns

As you learn to consciously observe the transformation process, you will watch yourself repeating a lot of old patterns long after you seemingly know better.  Spiritually and intellectually, you realize there is another way, but emotionally you are still clinging to the old habits.  This is a difficult time.  Try to be patient and compassionate with yourself.  When you recognize the futility of an old pattern so clearly, it's about to change!  A short time later, you will suddenly begin to respond differently, in a more positive way.

A Quote by Shakti Gawain on awareness and choice

... my life has been dedicated to my growth and evolution as a conscious being.  ... becoming more aware of all that was taking place within me and around me; how my inner world affected my outer world and vice versa.  I realized that the more awareness I have, the more choice I have in how I create or respond to the circumstances of my life.

A Quote by Shakti Gawain on life, balance, the journey, and consciousness

... consciousness is an ever-unfolding, deepening, and expanding process with no end point.  We are infinite and complex beings, and our human journey involves not just a spiritual awakening, but the development of all levels of our being - spiritual, mental, emotional, and physical - and the integration of all these aspects into a healthy and balanced daily life.

A Quote by Shakti Gawain on guidance, energy, power, spirituality, and time

Every time you don't follow your inner guidance, you feel a loss of energy, loss of power, a sense of spiritual deadness.
