Hallowe’en. The season of masks and costumes. But how many masks do we wear day-by-day? This week, let’s talk about “unmasking”!
Originally, it is believed, Hallowe’en was a time of celebrating the dead. Today, however, this celebration doesn’t seem to have much meaning at all, and appears to be simply an opportunity to dress up and have some “dark” fun. It is a time when people of all ages put on costumes and masks and pretend to be something they are not.
If you think about it for a moment, many of us spend a lot of our “real” time pretending to be something we are not. We put on false airs to appear more confident than we really are. We use humor as a way of dealing with uncomfortable situations, or for getting people to like us. Some of us have the belief that if we dare to reveal who we really are, we will be ridiculed, spurned, shunned…or worse. And so we put up our shields and don our masks in an effort to hide those parts of ourselves.
And what pain do we cause ourselves in the process? What suffering do we cause our loved ones? What strife do we create in the world?
This week, we welcome a wonderful guest, Junie Moon Schreiber, a specialist on the subject of Shadow, to share her wisdom and help us all to UNMASK! In this episode, we discuss what it means to show up in the world as a genuine, authentic being—unhindered by the false representations that we want people to see.
While this may be a challenging and deep topic (as topics usually are on Life Mastery TV), we are committed to making this light and fun. But you only get to see us with our masks off if you take a risk to share space with us!
