The dark and the light

exist together to help us come to balance.

The light is your intuition, your morals, your values. 

if you don’t listen to the light, the darkness

will come in.

Your darkness is your shame, your guilt, your traumatic experiences. 

Darkness can reveal your shadow self.

Your shadow is parts of yourself that you’ve suppressed, pushed away 

and buried into your subconscious mind. 

Healing of your inner child and past traumas is the biggest step to move forward.

What do you do when you have feelings of anger, jealousy, and envy? 

When you wonder, why do I respond this way? Why does this trigger me? 

Your reactions may have something to do with past scars that are unhealed. 

To heal your inner child, you must face your trauma and discuss it with yourself.

This will be challenging for most. Answering questions like, 

“Do you have any limiting beliefs from childhood that still affect you today?”

may stump someone’s train of thought. 

To move on from your past you must face it, otherwise,

you’re left with questions unanswered. 

Think of your younger self.

 Would you be satisfied with the person you are today? 

Do not be harsh on yourself. 

The only person you need to make proud is you,

 so allow yourself to heal. 

The point of Shadow Work is to learn to morph your mind

into facing challenging emotions rather than ignoring them. 

You must learn to become conscious of how you feel;

you must choose to deal with emotions positively, 

this is essential to healing but takes time. 

The healing journey begins with your shadow. 

Look inward.
