You are the light within the Shadow

Organic Rainbow Moment

I am inclined to disagree with Jung when he says the Shadow is the person that we’d rather not be.

The Shadow is that unadorned part of ourselves, it is flexible the way it stretches and contorts.

The Shadow is our dark side, the side we hide and climb into, not the person that we would rather not be, but the person we would rather be.

Your Shadow is a dark omen, a powerful teacher that reveals to you the places in your life where you are energetically blocked.

When you continue to ignore these signs, you perpetuate the cycle of your suffering.

The shadow is needed now more than ever.

We heal the world when we heal ourselves, and hope shines brightest when it illuminates the dark.

Shadow work journaling prompts:
🖤What do you think are the worst character traits a person can have?
When is a time you have demonstrated these traits?

🖤Who do you envy? Why? How might you be able to work towards gaining the things they have that you feel jealousy towards?

🖤What person has hurt you the most in your life? Write them a letter telling them all the things you’d like to say.

🖤What most frightens you? How might you be able to expose yourself to that fear in a safe way?

🖤 When have you been self-sabotaging or destructive in your life?
Examine how you were feeling at the time, and what triggered your behavior.

Awareness and acceptance of our faults and limitations, forgiving ourselves and others, and letting go of the pain we’re holding onto to live a more peaceful life.
