One of the first life-shifting realizations I had from doing inner work was to understand bullies. I recognized that they are sitting in massive amounts of denied fear, covering it up by looking powerful. Generating fear in others makes them feel safe.
The common notion that “bullies treat people the way they do because they don’t know, or don’t care” no longer felt accurate. On some level, we know what we are choosing to do. On an even deeper level we care. That is who we are as higher consciousness beings.
The next part of understanding bullies was having to look at some pretty gnarly mirrors. I had to admit that the bullies in my life were extreme versions of myself. I would never choose to do what they do, but none-the-less they were reflecting aspects I had scrunched down. Really well. For years. Perhaps lifetimes.
Bullies became my greatest teachers.
Something shifted from opening that can of worms. Suddenly I felt compassion, or dare I say love toward my personal bullies. In fact, it projected out to all bullies.
Taking it further, I grokked that bullies desperately want love yet believe they don’t deserve it.
As the world witnesses powerful leaders viciously waving their bully sticks, it's a glaring reminder to face our denied bully-ness. How are we bullying others? More importantly, how are we bullying ourselves? Mirrors don't lie.
Your higher consciousness desperately wants you to remember and clean up those “bullying” things you’ve done. Things you have shoved way back in your subconscious mind. Bullies offer gifts of awakening, shake-ups to help you remember. They show you where you are still beating yourself up.
Their greatest gift is helping you forgive yourself. And love yourself more.
Bullies also provide lessons about getting your true power back. Standing up for yourself -- not from defensiveness, but from open-hearted, compassionate love. It takes courage to speak your truth and own your voice from an empowered, loving place. But trust that you can.
Doing inner delving spreads to help others. On a global level, we all need this lesson. When enough of us get it, there will be an end to violence and war. The world will at last evolve to love. Where we are meant to be.
