Shadow aspects are traits and qualities that, at some point in our lives, we have rejected and repressed.
Someone (parent? teacher? "friend"?) told us that we're not good enough (and never will be),
that what we're doing is embarrassing,
or just stupid.
We got laughed at, yelled at, or ignored.
We learned to be ashamed to admit our true passions,
to feel uncomfortable asking questions,
to be embarrassed asking for help,
and to constantly judge others: from complete strangers to our closest friends and partners.
Instead of showing up in the world in a way that feels authentic, we tell ourselves stories on why we will fail, placing blocks on our own paths.
Flipping the Script
We've been repeating to ourselves counter-productive stories for so long, that they seem to be absolute truths. But is it possible they aren't?
Can we imagine a situation, a reality, where these qualities and traits - the good and the bad - could actually be valuable in our lives?
This is the Focus of "Shadow Work"
Originally developed by depth-psychologist Carl Jung, shadow work helps us uncover our shadow aspects, make peace with them, and integrate them into our psyche.
As long as we keep ignoring, resisting and fighting these aspects, they will keep showing up in our lives (as triggers, projections and judgments), and keep holding us back.
Integrating our shadow aspects is healing. Instead of constantly showing up as obstacles, these aspects become opportunities: to create, to connect, and to feel worthy and more whole.
