Shadow Work is an adventure into the dark forest within. It is a journey of self-discovery like no other. There are many paths one can take, many different ways you may hear it described or explained. Here is how I describe this adventure:
You open your maps app and search for a restaurant. You get served up all the restaurants you’ve already been to before. As you scroll through the list, you realize that you don’t really like any of these places you’ve been, you want to go somewhere new. But there are no new places on the list. Then, you find out one day, your app has been tracking where you eat, so when you search for restaurants, it gives you the places you’ve been. You dig into your phone settings, turn off the tracking, and now new opportunities are presented.
Shadow work is the process of digging into your settings, into your programming. By doing this, you can bring about deeper layers of healing.
