When the Black Dog slinks in...



There was a time when the black dog smothered my life,

Filling all the places where I desperately wanted to breathe.

I learned to work with the Black Dog

I befriended him

I learned his needs and wants

And we agreed to boundaries I had not expected would happen.

These days my black dog is called Lucifer.

He is kept on a leash and under control.

He tries occasionally to take over, to swamp me in his energy

But I have many tools to use that stop me from falling under his spell.

I know the signs to look for.

I make sure I fill me with nourishing foods

I get plenty of rest

I stop burning the candle at both ends

I look to what could over stress me.

I understand my propensity to be emotionally swamped

By other's emotions as well as my own.

I spend more time with emotional nuances

I see them as shades of colour

The hues of life either filled with vibrant energy or not

By so doing...

I may live my life in the light

Experiencing every colour and hue.
