Everything casts a shadow. There is no avoiding that.
Obviously that’s true when you walk outside and look at the literal shadows cast by objects in the sun, but there is also a shadow side to your consciousness.
It underlies just about everything that you do.
What we’re talking about here is the unspoken, buried, avoided aspect of you. The things that you’re still angry about from when you were a child. The things that you’re afraid of. The reasons that you sabotage yourself or others sometimes. The behaviors that come out when you lose ‘control’.
As scary as that may sound, it is in your shadow that the greatest potential for growth exists.
The only way to conquer your shadows is to bring them fully into to the light.
