Great Discoveries [August 2019]

I haven’t written one of these in a while, so I guess I’ll catch up on a few favorites.

1. Anne with an “e”

I’ll start with the most recent discovery, “Anne with an “e””. This one is a beautifully crafted, visually satisfying, emotionally engaging and soul rewarding pieces of screenwriting that makes your heart just fill with good things! And it’s on Netflix!

2. Outlander

Another very well written show on Netflix! It gets a bit lost on the way, but the actors are just so good and the scriptwriters/directors are so incredibly skilled that they make up for the characters’ irrational behaviors and decisions.

3. The “Academy of Ideas” YouTube Cannel

Very well put-together videos on different aspects of psychological self-work. I have had a number of insights watching some of these videos.

4. Suduaya’s “Autumnal Retreat” EP

5. Before I Fall

Yet another good movie that plays on the idea of being stuck in a loop. I saw Russian Doll earlier this year and then Mom recommended I see this one too. I think the Universe is trying to tell me something, because I have indeed felt like I have been stuck in a loop. I later found that this happens when you try to move forward but you don’t want to let go of old attitudes because you don’t understand the connection that you are creating the very situation that you want to get out of.

5 Great Discoveries [February 2019]

1. Anneke Lucas’s Incredible Interview with Collective Evolution

Anneke Lucas is a survivor of Elite Child Sex Slavery and she has had the great courage to speak about it. Collective Evolution did a 4-part interview series (about 4-5 hours of video material in total) with Anneke which was available for free for a while, but now it is accessible only by subscription to Collective Evolution TV, CETV. I highly recommend watching it! It is very eye opening, not only in understanding that child sex trafficking is a horrifying reality that takes place at the top of the hierarchies of power but also in seeing the incredible strength of the human spirit in overcoming the most horrific experiences.

This is illuminating in many other regards, such as the importance of accepting ourselves fully, in forgiving ourselves and those that have harmed us, in seeing that there are forces beyond our comprehension that are assisting us.

I am very grateful for this interview series and for this brave woman for having come forward and shared her story.

2. Russian Doll

Russian Doll is a Neflix show about a girl who dies repeatedly, only to find herself resurrected in the same place every time: a bathroom in an old building where a party for her birthday is taking place. Each time she dies she finds herself staring into the bathroom mirror and she gets to experience the same day all over again. Kind of like Groundhog Day, but with more sex, drugs and rock’n’roll. She tries to find out why this is happening to her and she tests various theories, like maybe the building is haunted, or she is in hell or purgatory.

I loved this show because it is highly entertaining, because it is very well written and because it touches on Jungian psychology of working with the shadow. I loved the characters and I loved the character evolution. That is my favorite thing to watch in a movie: character evolution, and – oh – I was so glad to see it delivered in abundance.

Very grateful to have watched this show.

I loved it so much that I may consider interpreting it. We’ll see.

3. Eva Pierrakos – Creating Union

A phenomenal book packed with wisdom, excellent to read for anyone who is interested in deep shadow work and understanding patterns of behavior and dynamics in relationship, as well as the nature of reality and duality. This book is actually a thematic collection of The Pathwork Lectures which can be found at pathwork.org.
