#BehindYourBack

I grew up in Japan where 98% of the population is Japanese. Though half Japanese, looking white, I would like to share my own experience: . . 1) #racialdiscrimination is experienced not only from a conscious intent or choice to harm or hurt others but also from a “unconscious” place built from perception based on old-programming: culture, schooling, parents, beliefs, faith, etc where judgements are formed. . 2) people of different colour grow up very aware of the dynamics played out in society at a very young age; at an early age, learn to become very #mindful of the “unspoken rules”. Think twice or thrice before we speak or act - being “put in our places” to not shine so outwardly, to not attract attention - making ourselves small trying to navigate our way through society yet never fitting in or belonging with no real sense of #integration of #oneness or #wholeness. . . 3) since 2016 living in #London, perhaps due to: a) changing my career from investment banking to #yogateacher b) aging, now 47, where I know & love myself unequivocally where I don’t take things personally anymore or know the tools to #heal when my mind gets disturbed and c) I now wander in #selfreflection from the recent tragic & violent incident in America and #inspired by @larugayoga & @jfeinbrown whether the reason I feel #freetobemyself in England is also because I am experiencing some form of #whiteprivilege for the 1st time in my life 🤔 . I definitely didn’t - treated as an outsider - when I studied at university both east & west coast in the States nor the first time I lived in London in 1995-1998. Though I love my country, Japan is a very racist country though not physically violent, lots of #shadowwork issues, #hushhush #behindyourback with micro agggression and at times passive-aggressive as a culture that doesn’t encourage individual expressions. . . Note: 70% of adults have experienced some form of #trauma. When you include early childhood - young adolescents, the percentage must be higher.. . #history : #Japan is the only country where it closed it’s country for 214 years from 1639 to 1853. . . #honesttalk #sharing #opencommunication #awareness #accountability #responsibility

The story behind this photo is that the shadow in the background belongs to the original poster’s late husband. It seems the husband died of cancer and now haunts his former home, appearing as a shadowy figure. – “The Shadow Husband” #paranormal #haunted #ghost #spooky #blackshadow #horror #behindyourback
