The Illumination And Integration Of The Shadow

Our shadow can only be repressed for so long. It is a lot work to keep it in place. Eventually, it does find its way to its rightful place within our daily lives. It gets tired of being repressed and ignored. It runs out of gas in finding ways to express that are not vulnerable and relational.

This is true for our personal shadows as well as the Collective Shadow that is coming into plain sight with each passing day. We are being invited, if not prodded, to reconcile and reunite with this sequestered part of our consciousness and emotional/spiritual body. I know this is true for me, and has been for all of my healing journey.

It is a process like any other. It ebbs and flows. Floods and recedes. It is an essential part of each of our maturation and evolutionary cycles. There is no real management that can ease its way onto the scene other than a sacred trust that whatever comes out will be met with a deep compassion and forgiveness for all its edges and darkness.

It desperately seeks to come out and be a part of our lives. It houses our power and our creativity. It is the gateway to our authenticity and our reality. We are just living a half-life in its stead. When it is time for integration, it will be clear. Gaia’s ascension requires it as a passport to the New, no longer avoided but met with need and desire, hand in hand.
