The shadow aspect is one of the most misunderstood concepts in the pursuit of spirituality. Many think the shadow is our dark side, and many of us think it is synonymous with evil. What the shadow really refers to, is that part of ourselves that we keep hidden from light, that is used to balance out our light selves, like the yin-yang dichotomy. In our shadow lies not only weaknesses, hidden desires and suppressed emotions, but also infinite potential. It is where we keep the strengths that we dare not exhibit to the world, the imperfections that define us and the bold thoughts that drive us and even the psychic abilities that we fear uncovering. It can be where we keep the source of what holds us back from being truly happy and powerful. It is the space we keep secrets which can be helpful to us when revealed. Hence it is essential that we understand, embrace, accept and love our shadow aspect. Simply put, even though the shadow is a dangerous part of us, but much like a double-edge sword, if you master it, it can help you slay all manners of obstacles in your way.
This coming Wednesday, 19 August 2020 at 10:41am (SGT), we see the rise of the New Moon in Leo. The energy of this New Moon is about self-discovery. It is time to delve deeper into ourselves and learn to love all the imperfections that make us unique. Many of us would have experienced a transformative process after the 8 August 2020 Lions Gate Portal, where we feel we are ready to start to stand in our own power and live life authentically. However, in the process, some of us may feel like we are taking 3 steps forward and 2 steps back. The answer to moving forward lies in uncovering what holds us back and traps us. This is where we need to look at discovering our shadow aspect to help us uncover those beliefs, conditioning and karmic issues that block us from living our lives to the fullest. The New Moon is also a good time to reconnect with our higher selves, our inner child and the potential that lies in our shadow. For those who want to do so, but are unsure how, this is a good time for a healing session to work on connection and your shadow aspect.
Please do not hesitate to reach out for healing and support during this time, whether it is through a healing session, distant blessing or joining our activities.
Sending one and all much love, healing and blessings. Namaste.
With love, light & laughter,
