Guardians at the Gate

I really haven't used these collages to work through personal challenges. This one came out of the blue at me. Was stranded for several days by fear, unable to move past it. Then I remembered Pema Chodron & her discussion of the Guardians at the Gate who are very ancient, created by me as child for protection; they have good intentions, but since they were invented by a child they are no longer productive protectors. They are still powerful & I must give them their due. As soon as I acknowledged their presence they evaporated away. I no longer felt stranded. Its so interesting to me. And even though the Guardians are sort of destructive I love them so.
