CHAPTER 4: BARDO OF DEATH

EXTRACTING DEMONS

It is clear to me that to identify the very origins of my traumas, it is necessary for me to go even deeper, to where it all began. I step into the darkness. Once again, I take a perspective in which my spirit leaves my physical body to enter another state of being: bardo of death. The world of the spirits. I face fear and demons. It is time for me to tell them I have come to say farewell. 

In the spirit world, I encounter spirit animals. Most of them have been appearing in my drawings and paintings for decades. Back then, I never really chose to paint these creatures. They just came as I felt it. Only now do I begin to understand what they intend to tell me. Sometimes they act as companions who lend me qualities I need on my path. Other times they represent parts of my being deeply anchored within me. Many of them are only representations of how energy transforms in the matrix.
