The Largeness Of Your Calling
In The Archetypal Imagination, psychologist and Jungian analyst James Hollis wrote,"The ultimate end of depth psychology is to stand respectfully before inner truth and dare to live it in the world. What blocks each of us is fear—fear of loneliness, fear of rejection, and most of all, fear of largeness. We are all afraid to move from the confining powers of fate into the invitations of our destiny, afraid to step into the largeness of our calling to be who we were meant to be" (p. 104).
Ask yourself silently for a moment, "How am I still playing it small in my life? How am I still limiting my own voice in the world?"
Be honest, report back to me! Let's dialogue about this. There is nobody else but yourself with the full power to take a step today towards your calling. I know for myself today, it's going to be to sit down at the piano. Just that commitment to my own music, floods me with energy and life. So simple, yet so easy to ignore and put off. Crucial to listen to our soul callings. Crucial to find a way to give them voice in our lives!
I believe voicework can support a person to step into their full spectrum of vibration, from the dark, deep guttural sounds of the earth to the high, rushing sirens of the sky. When we sing, our fear of largeness looks us right in the eyes. Vocalizing is the act of being willing to welcome our whole self into the room and to be witnessed in all our humanness. When we welcome ourselves, we invite all aspects of our voice to emerge. The voice of pain and the voice of pleasure. The voice of judgment and the voice of acceptance, the beautiful and the ugly, the entire inner archetypal choir.
