According to the Jungian model of psychology, the shadow self is that aspect of us that we perceive to be taboo, deviant, or unacceptable. This aspect is often buried in the realm of the subconscious, banished from our awareness due to the shame and discomfort it so often calls forth in us. Because we’re so often unable to face this aspect of ourselves, it manifests in disruptive ways, causing us much pain and anguish.
It’s a belief in Jungian psychology that if you plumb the depths of your subconscious and face your shadow self, you can reintegrate and assimilate it. Your awareness of it allows you to identify when it’s at play in a given situation and potentially liberating you from its control. When we’re able to pinpoint the causes of our fear, our pain, and our anxiety, we can effectively override our knee-jerk reaction and act in ways that are more beneficial and self-loving.
This reading is designed to help you identify some of the key players in your shadow landscape and to help you work through them in terms of the details you provide. We’ll explore the psycho-spiritual blockages that these shadows create and ways actionable advice on how to work on removing them. Shadow triggers are explored, and self-love and self-care advice is given to help you maintain balance and center throughout this process. It is important for me to note that I have no training in Jungian psychotherapy. This reading is designed based off of his scholarship and my personal shadow work journey.
