Holding space is what we can do for others without infringing our thoughts, beliefs and reactions on another’s situation…including their passing. Stay in the Clear Light. This is the Labyrinth Reader’s mindset. I have been waiting for this article, am incredibly thankful for it and am happy to share it with others: What it means to “hold space” for people, plus eight tips on how to do it well – Heather Plett.
From another article:
“Those are really the key elements of holding space. You’re not trying to influence the situation. You’re not trying to fix it, win at it, or affect any kind of outcome. You are simply being with it fully so that it can work itself out. This doesn’t mean becoming a victim to it. Quite the contrary actually, you’re very powerful in this space, and it certainly doesn’t mean being hurt physically by another. By when you’re deep into a space like this, you are far more immune to any “emotional” hurt than you might realize. So much of emotional hurt is just ego wounding. It’s taking what someone else is saying personally. But oddly enough, what most people say about us is just a reflection of themselves. It’s not personal. And while we don’t turn a blind eye to everything other people are saying, we really begin to understand just how much illusion everyone else is trapped in too.”
