“We are constantly discovering how we project our shadow – both its light and dark aspects – onto the other. The dance of soulful romance always includes owning back those projections and transferences. Our relationship will expose all the places we are emotionally blocked, blinded, wounded caged, protected, or otherwise limited.
Invariably, upon first bumping -or crashing! – into those constricted places, well feel fear, anger, hurt, shame, or guilt. Eventually, we learn to recognize these emotions as opportunities to learn about ourselves and sometimes the other. Rather than avoiding these emotions, we dive into them, therby discovering the holes in our personalities, the places that need attention if we are going to move toward wholeness.”
