Shadow work how to

Post by Ethereal Moon Rose »

I've been wanting to explore my shadow self BUT I don't know where to start!

I have googled but haven't found much on WHAT to do, just a bunch of 'pay this amount to find out how' kind of thing.

Any tips for getting started?

The two sub-forms of "shadow" are an ugly monster and a black agressor. If you visualise them it is easy, because the 3rd eye doesn't judge colours or ugliness. Just observing, waiting, letting them be is plenty to get started.

Next, own your own shadow, as part of your own intrinsic makeup. A deep knowing part of you that CAN but DOES NOT HAVE TO, do certain things. Some of these things will be pleasant, some not. Ask yourself, "what would I do to this person?" Then take time to decide of you have got a better idea; usually you will.

Last, the key to the shadow is that it constitutes 90% of the Hero archetype, ie the self that survives God. That is because of it's deep knowings being purified (see above) and turned into magic. Have fun, barker.

I recommend checking out Jessi Huntenberg on YouTube. She's got a number of really great videos that cover this topic very well!
