In this video, Bentinho Massaro discusses the distinction between indulging in a victim story and holding space for a wounded or rejected part of one's consciousness.
Indulging involves being swayed into new beliefs and feelings about one's story, while holding space does not create any new feelings in response to old ones, but rather clears them and replaces them with love, acceptance, forgiveness, and healing.
Bentinho highlights the need to be vigilant for indulgence, and clarifies that true space holding feels like love and acceptance, allowing thoughts and feelings to dissolve into one's awareness and cosmic heart.
He cautions against avoiding negative thoughts by swiftly shifting to a positive mindset, since this can create internal division. Instead, he encourages the embrace of all aspects of oneself as the light, including the parts that may wish to linger in the dark. By accepting and seeing how everything is made of light, one can integrate these wounded or rejected parts of oneself into unity, into wholeness.
