Encountering One`s Shadow.

Quote.

When your mind and heart are truly open abundance will flow to you effortlessly and easily.

Question:

I am 53 yrs old, I have just realized and encountered my shadow for the first time! I don't know how to embrace it, love it and encourage it to trust me. I now understand the pain it has caused me, I have caused it, and the pain I have caused others. I hear your words (and others) about acceptance and forgiveness. But I guess I need step by step instructions on how I can forgive others, truly embrace the good of those who hurt me, and move out of self pity and self-centeredness for the remainder of my life.

Response:

The shadow is that part of your psyche that is hiding your shame, fear, pain, guilt and anger. It remains in the dark to hide from your judgment that it is bad, wrong and just unacceptable. So the first step in healing the shadow is to stop judging it as bad. That doesn’t heal it instantly, but it at least stops driving a wedge between you and it, and sets the stage for an eventual reintegration of these two warring parts of your self. Seeing your shadow as the fragments of your injured self allows you to look upon it with compassion and understanding, and this can then lead to acceptance and further healing. Once that process is underway, you will find it easier and easier to reintegrate and heal more of your shadow self without judgment and or self-pity.

    I`m a college lecturer with a personal interest in shadow work. I communicate with my shadow and have converted these shadow dialogues into short animations.
