You hear the dreaded words,”We need to talk“. You missed the FINAL submission deadline and to top it all off your favorite jeans are feeling way to snug after last night’s Italian fiesta. As life throws it’s steady stream of challenges, you find that your shadow side begins a slow and steady take over as if you were Dr. Jeckyll battling Mr. Hyde.
The shadow is the side of ourselves we don’t like to associate as part of our identity. Psychologist Carl Jung wrote, “Everyone carries a shadow, and the less it is embodied in the individual’s conscious life, the blacker and denser it is” (Jung, 1938, p. 131). It is made up of fears, shame, guilt, grief, resentments, jealousy, anger and other aspects we don’t like to freely admit as part of our make-up. Our shadow, unmanaged can overwhelm us with brute force or it may simply linger or hide unconsciously in the mind and body.
Sound healing and vibrational shifting support tools such as breath work, guided visualization, meditation, bio-tuning and energy work entrain the body and brain to a relaxed and healthier resonant state. This foundation is key to experiencing unconditional presence and for diminishing the power of the shadow over us.
Significant shifts are usually felt within the first week or two of partaking in a customized sound & vibrational based support program. It takes roughly eight weeks for a healthier resonance to be sustained so that one is better equipped to integrate the shadow. Results are cumulative, subtle and yet profound.
