Shadow work isn't easy. It's really no fun looking at the part of ourselves we don't like. But if we can learn that the shadow is trying to protect us, it can help us to be more gentle with ourselves.
It is also helpful to take a break from the shadow work and make a card about a neter that we really enjoy. Maybe you're a baker or you play the piano or maybe you're a really good hugger. Make a card for this part of you.
Put it somewhere visible so it can remind you of how spectacular you are and that, as Neale says, God loves you to pieces.
So do I.
On this day of your life, Lisa, I believe God wants you to know...
....that you should hope to see your shadow today. It
might be the best thing that ever happened to you.
It's Ground Hog Day for the soul. If you do not know
what Ground Hog Day is (if you live outside the U.S.
you may not), Google it. Or go to Wikipedia. Then
smile if you see your shadow today. For when the
shadow side of you is seen, embraced, and loved,
your healing has begun for sure.
Self-improvement begins with self-acceptance. All of
life, everything else, has led up to this. This is your
work now. It is the final step. Go for it.
