Shadow work doesn’t mean you live in the dark. It means you take your Shadow’s hand and pull it into the light until it moves through life with you, not against you.
Finding the positive lessons of Shadow work and integrating them gives you more of a depth of creativity and Being. They teach you where you’ve overlooked your gifts or given away your power, where you’re not living true to your values, and what parts of your strengths you’re afraid to ‘own’.
The gifts of Shadow work help you identify your inner workings, your innermost desires, what wounds you need to heal, and where you’re not living according to your values. When you listen to them instead of ignoring or pushing them away they can become your greatest allies.
