How to Crush Your Shadow Work
In a past interview, I was introduced to the term “shadow work”. Knowing me, I’m sure you know how intrigued I immediately was with what that could be and I learned that over the last year and a half….shadow work is exactly what I’ve bene doing….without even realizing that’s what I was doing!
So what is it exactly? Demons. Shadows. Skeletons in the closet. We all have them. And you can’t just get rid of your shadow, no matter how far you run. Everyone carries a dark side, even if we don’t like to admit it.
The idea of the shadow self was first conceived by Carl Jung.
In Jungian psychology, the word ‘shadow’ refers to hidden parts of our being.
Carl Jung believed in the integration of the shadow side so that our full self is acknowledged, and we can live in a balanced way.
Today’s guest is no stranger to shadow work, and in fact, its becaue of her work in that area that I reached out to her to come on the show.
