Embracing your Shadow Side

Updated: Jan 5

I have been around the sun 36 times now and this is what I know...

I know my shadow can seem scary

I know my shadow keeps me safe

I know my shadow holds my dark side and the moments I've felt fear

I know my shadow is actually my ego demanding control

I know what if feels like to live in my shadow and shut out the light

I know what it feels like to not want to get out of my bed

I know self-sabotage, jealousy, victimhood, depression, anxiety, and pure hopelessness

They are all good friends of mine

I also now know what it feels like to shine light and love on all these aspects of myself

I know how good it can feel to embrace my shadow

I know what it feels like to look at my shadow self and those parts of me I would rather not see

I know how freeing it can be to love these parts of me while acknowledging what they are protecting me from

Our shadows job is to protect our hearts

So, invite your shadow to the table and give it a voice

Give your ego a name and see what that part of yourself has to say

Once you have done this you can invite your ego to step aside and invite your soul to step up and lead

When you shine light on the darkness and embrace all the parts that make you who you are it takes the fear away
