“There is only one thing that can triumph over our lower self, our shadow self, and that is our higher self. And the higher self dwells within the highest love of all: the love of our Creator, in whom there is no darkness, no suffering or fear.
It is psychologically unrealistic to underestimate the power of the shadow, but it is spiritually immature to underestimate the power of God. Prayer is not just a symbol; it is a force.
Meditation is not just something that relaxes us; it is something that harmonizes the energies of the universe. Forgiveness doesn’t just make us feel better; it literally transforms the heart. All the powers that emanate from God are powers that will set us free.”
Excerpt From: Deepak Chopra, Marianne Williamson & Debbie Ford. “The Shadow Effect.”
ANITA JOYCE SKOCZ is a storyteller who resides in Central Florida. She credits her passion to her father, who dazzled her imagination as a child with his gift to weaver a tale. After a diving accident in 1978, Anita left the travel industry to journey the inner roads of her soul. The riches found on those adventures inward come to life in her children’s books.
Anita’s books, “Crystal Star Angel” and “Kite Tale,” were inspired by the loving relationships her father had with his grandsons.
From Where I Sit is a blog where Anita shares her life’s stories, or comments on current events from her soul’s perspective. Her insights can evoke laughter as well as take one on a reflective journey. In any case she hopes you join her each Wednesday for a new adventure.
