As terrifying as it may seem at first, opening to your shadow self in healthy ways can release your personal and creative power so you have a chance to become all that you might have ever wished to be.
Can you remember moments as an adult when the expectations of revealing your real self caused you to shake? When sudden feelings of shame, guilt, or embarrassment popped out of nowhere? When you fumed about someone’s words or actions for days?
Why looking at our shadow is essential to our spiritual awakening.
All shadow is the lack of light and many spiritual practices stay away from our opposites, our shadow selves; this feeds the dark. This manifests into form to mirror back. Now is the time to embrace all our parts with an open heart and a willingness to look deep within, to understand, to embrace and to let go.
So love your shadow, own your shadow and set it free.
