A challenging aspect to Urine therapy is the necessary self-love required in sustaining the practice.
Not the hippy ‘new-age’ self-love that relies on spiritual bypassing, fragmented boundaries and chronic suppression to maintain a dogged determination for nothing but a perpetual shiny, sparkly positivity.
But the self-love necessary to imbibe, surrender and accept the very watery essence of who we are.
An acceptance transforming into gratitude and appreciation for the gift of being returned to ourselves.
At a deep unconscious level, even the thought of reabsorbing our water exposes all denied, abandoned and suppressed places within.
Sensations and emotions, caught up in moments of tangled thought-forms, perhaps even comprehended...but disallowed genuine assimilation.
Being open to the idea that urine may not actually be ‘waste’ - dirty and repugnant - as we have been conditioned to think, may be the first intellectual step in getting our ‘head’ around UT.
But what of how we feel about ourselves, the dialogue carried around in the psyche, the way we talk to our imaginary self?
A lot is said about the physical benefits and apparently miraculous curing of disease. Are we willing to radically love ourselves into including the latent shadowy areas and their often uncomfortable exposure?
