Enter the Forest Where it is Darkest
The Grail King said this, to the knights of the Holy Grail, "Enter the forest where it is darkest and there is no path." According to Joseph Campbell in The Heroes Journey. This is the only way to insure that it is your journey and not someone else's. Those of you that have read Campbell understand he speaks in metaphor and allegory.
As a Hypnotherapist I also utilize the power of this language in my work. The conscious mind only knows how to follow paths and in doing so keeps us trapped in repetitive patterns. Breaking these patterns through speaking to the subconscious mind, stirs curiosity and awakens us to new possibilities.
Each of you started out as children, on the greatest adventure that you will ever experience and yet few continue. The feelings of frustration, unworthiness and shame, that many still carry is directly related to this loss of purpose. Most of the sideways behaviors you exhibit only serve to distract you from having to look at what you gave up.
My job is to guide you back into your adventure because isn't that what you came here to do? I cannot tell you what it is, though I am pretty sure that you have some unfinished business. Do not think of me as a guide that points out your path. Instead I will help you remove the veil that has been blocking you from seeing it.
