Inner work is like a quiet pilgrimage into the mysterious dark forests of the mind and heart – which is the mythological image we use here on lonerwolf.
Indeed, whenever we experience a spiritual awakening of any kind, we become like lone wolves beginning our quest through the dense vegetation of our inner worlds.
We don’t know the way.
We don’t know the path.
We may feel lost, disoriented, and a little scared.
And yet, something deep within us – the Soul perhaps – knows that this is a journey we must undertake in order for us to find true freedom, healing, belonging, and fulfillment.
Like any journey, there are many routes and paths we can take to get us through that subterranean world of our deep psyches and toward our inner Center.
So which path do you take?
That’s where this test can help you out.
Remember: you can return to this test as many times as you want to get an idea of what your needs are (because they can and do change throughout your spiritual journey). Treat this test as a resource that can help you tune into your own inner wolf, and what path it wants to traverse next.
My answers to this test suggest that you need to strengthen my capacity to show kindness, gentleness, forgiveness, patience, and humor toward yourself. It indicated I not do the inner child test/ funny it was the one I was going to do before this test// I best get to work
I have a question. On advice of Matheo, i started with the selflove journal because we need a good foundation. I am almost trough the SL journal. And i’m trying to figure out what would be the next step. The journal test says i still need to work on my self love. Last year(s) i had a really rough time. But the darkest parts are(seem) over. Although, i am still not sure what my life purpose would be and i can still feel myself lost/wondering…I am not sure if the dark night journal would be a good idea or the twin flame solo journal. There are some predictions that say i will meet my twin flame this year. Or next month! Not sure what to believe. But i do know, with or without, i still have more work to do. Just not sure what the best next step would be. I hope you can give me some guidance. Thank you.
I love this…
”Slow down, be quiet, and open your heart. Only then will you be able to truly listen.”
I know I desperately need ALL of them but I definitely want to know where to start.
At first I thought I needed shadow work first and foremost, but then I realized with my therapist that most of the anger and hostility I feel toward myself and the world is strongly rooted in sadness and pain. So I think I’m going to start someplace else like inner child work as well as going through past trauma with my therapist.
Also, happy 2023 LonerWolf! I think this is my second or third year with you and I’m happy to be around for another. Maybe this year will be the one where I actually put the advice in your articles to practice lol.
Self love was my calling.
The foundation of our very existence.
I have tried to build a life on a weak foundation. Emphasis on the word try.
It is in my 40’s that am I becoming more aware.
Awareness that I am the evolving yet un-evolved self.
One tiny expression of all that is.
Oscillating back-and-forth via the vagus nerve, both emitting and receiving.
Hidden from view yet omni-present.
Life happening for us from the inside out.
An earth-heart-mind coherence.
I begin to see, and accept, self love as the joy and wonder in the every day.
Whichever path I choose, self-love and appreciation is undeniably something to become passionate about.
To see, appreciate and love all that is the self is to see and appreciate all that is. Quite astonishing really.
Thank you for your guidance to bring me back to centre.
Beautiful, I’m glad I’ve tried it. Self-love was the result for me
Very nice quiz! I am currently doing shadow work…it is super hard.
