Our creative potential is often in hiding. It's inside the suppression of ourselves. It doesn't have to be this way...it's just that shit happens, mistakes are made and thus it takes a certain amount of getting real with ourselves to face our music...to see what we've been holding onto...and understand why we've been hiding from the best expressions of ourselves.
You need vulnerability in order to really utilize shame as a tool to support change.
Shame is a tool I've used to support myself through difficult points of change.
Vulnerability is the point of exposure. Your exposing to yourself that which you've been hiding from yourself....your discomfort....your judgement....your inferiority...your superiority...whatever is there.
Shame is the pain and discomfort in seeing your mistake(s) . The experience is self-humiliation.
Shame as a tool of support works with vulnerability because vulnerability enables your self-stability to go into your discomforts and source the issues with words. Without vulnerability it is difficult to work with discomforts because your holding yourself in resistance as defense and offense to vulnerability...and it creates a block from being able to see your shame....and really feel your pain.
If you really shame yourself effectively - you won't make that fuckup again. It would be too discomforting to make that fuck up and you know and understand how humiliating that would be. You simply could not do that to yourself. You no longer have it in you to compromise yourself like that. You've forgiven yourself for real without a doubt.
Shame yourself into making great change, it's the least you could do for yourself and all of existence.
When you experience resistance in following through with your best play....Shame yourself into making the necessary adjustment.
