In Western society, we are taught to hide or minimize emotions that are not pleasant or attractive. When you are rejected for any reason, especially in early life and by a parent or partner, a wave of emotions rises within your psyche: shame, embarrassment, and deep pain. And while we should work through those feelings to understand their root cause and integrate our feelings in the moment as they are happening, we often do the exact opposite: we push those feelings down, repress them, ignore and deny them, lock them up in a tiny box, without realizing that they cannot be repressed or denied forever. When you push your feelings down or compartmentalize them into one corner of your mind, you only put a temporary hold on them; they will resurge later, often in an enhanced and more powerful form, and in ways that can be destructive to you or others.
Your shadow is the collected mass of pain, shame, and sorrow and it has a voice, a way of being in the world, and an energetic frequency. Your shadow, if left anchored in your subconscious, can be projected onto others and create karmic entanglements that take generations to reconcile. You have to take responsibility for what you know about yourself and what you don’t know yet because both sides of that coin are you. You carry your shadow energy everywhere you go, and for some people, it’s like traveling with 10 massive suitcases stuffed to the brim with unacknowledged emotions. Wouldn’t you like to leave those suitcases behind? I’m here to help you make sense of it all in a safe space where no one will judge you as we look at what you’ve been carrying around all these years. I’ve been carrying my own stuff, and who knows – maybe mine is crazier than yours! Click here to learn more about Of Light And Shadow.
The deeper magic of this class
In this third session of Of Light and Shadow, I will lead you in crafting your very own shadow collage. Shadow collaging is such a powerful way to engage and integrate the shadow. Using words, images, and symbols, we will create our shadow collages together, giving the darker aspects of our being a face so that we may better understand them. I will also teach a series of affirmations, which are meant to guide you in more deeply understanding your unique shadow. It is my hope that these affirmations will inspire and support you and help shape the way you think about yourself.
Shadow collaging is more than just crafting – it’s crafting grounded in meditation; crafting that stems from a place of guided spiritual inspiration. The collage you create will be a vivid snapshot of the light and shadow archetypes that make up who you are today. Since you will have permanent access to this class, you can revisit it whenever you wish, and make shadow collages whenever you feel called. Think about how amazing it would be to create one every year! You’ll be able to clearly see how you’ve evolved over time. In doing this work, I have one reminder: you can’t make a mistake. Be bold in how you approach this work, and let your intuition guide you – it won’t lead you astray. Trust yourself when creating your shadow collage, and you’ll be surprised at what incredible insights you’ll unveil.
