The unconscious self hides in the shadows of our internal sun, within the solar plexus chakra. The shadow is often referred to as a person’s dark side. These aspects of the unconscious self don’t want to be seen or identified.
Just as a seed holds the potential of the flower so does the shadow hold the potential of the self. The shadows of the self often stem from the anima (feminine desire within men) or animus (masculine desire within women). By shedding light on these shadows their hidden potential can be seen.
To awaken we must become conscious of what we are hiding. By loving the shadow self without judgment, past wounds can be healed and released and the self can become fully known.
Message: Our fear of looking at the shadow stories of our life no longer serve us. What we are hiding from is causing more harm than good. Make peace with our shadows by learning from them. We have the courage, confidence and compassion we need to see the insights they hold. Trust that we are now ready to release any fear or anxiety that we are not good enough or strong enough. This is a time of new beginnings and an opportunity to heal what we thought was impossible. These insights will move us forward with a renewed sense of clarity and purpose.
“Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate.” – Carl Jung

My goal is to find a publisher who can offer this as a set. In the meantime, you can purchase either the book or cards via these links. Thank you for your support. Laural
