Shadow; menace to manumission
The shadow is sneaky, conniving, cunning.
Jeopardising and sabotaging our dreams.
Dictating our decisions and our behaviours.
It is there whether we like it or not.
The path is learning to befriend them…
We all have shadow.
Any part we disown within us, turns against us.
If we ignore, repress, or suppress these parts.
It leads us on a continuous loop of negative patterns.
That is what the shadow wants.
This is what feeds, reinforces and makes the shadow more powerful.
It sucks our energy, our life-force.
It is multi layered and very intelligent.
It has been in our psyche affecting our daily decisions since infancy.
“Until you make the unconscious, conscious, it will rule your life and you will call it Fate”. Karl Jung
A client recently shared with me
He could feel himself falling deeply in love
It is what he thought he wanted
Suddenly he found himself pushing her away
Resisting, wanting to run
He felt trapped
There was a fear of opening fully
Expressing the true vulnerability of his heart
Dropping the walls of protection and exposing himself
A fear of getting hurt, of being abandoned
To play it safe he kept part closed
When we do this work of integrating our shadow
We become much more capable of manifesting the life we desire
Because we are no longer unconsciously rejecting it
When we don’t know how to become conscious of our unconscious
We will be controlled by it
Meaning we will be limited by repetitive negative patterns
Feed by our disowned unconscious desires . . .
This session was huge for my client
It has shifted the trajectory of his life
He has a deeper understanding of how his shadow
Has been dictating the show
He is more aware of when he is projecting on his partner
He has a greater compassion for the part within that feels abandoned
He has more confidence, ease, and capacity to vulnerably express
He has the courage to love deeper
It is so important for our own evolution and the evolution of the collective consciousness….
