Understanding the attributes unique to our celestial nature can help us see the recurring themes that show up in life. It's the blueprint to understanding ourselves. To see clearly the binds that hold us back, often fastened by ourselves without our knowledge.
Our shadow aspect feels as if it's hidden, existing below the earth in the darkness, often manifesting as guilt, shame, sadness or anger.
Just as yin and yang complement each other with their natural duality of light and dark, the shadow aspect of our archetype is interconnected with the light, the parts of us that are approved of by the world.
Often it is perceived that our shadow aspect represents the parts of us that are “broken” but to be whole we need to accept all of us, just as wet is to dry or night is to day. Integrating the hidden self so we can become whole.
“You are not broken, you are open.”
To be open to life as it comes and welcome what we came here to learn.
To accept who are today, where we aspire to be, and how to get there.
Our shadow aspect isn’t to be perceived as negative, it’s like gravity, a tension that keeps us alive and from floating into space.
The challenges and setbacks we face are only the growing pains to realise our better selves. Hard truths, though often unwanted in the moment, shine a light on the pleasing self-image we build to pacify ourselves in place of the real thing. Accepting turbulent conditions and often painful lessons are the way we may transcend the mind limits of fantasy. Here, we may truly recognise ourselves, accept what lies ahead, and begin to live a free and joyful life.
When you’re out of balance you may feel like giving up on life and that the world is against you. You can become exceedingly angry when people don’t hold strong values or they don’t seem to care about the injustices happening around them. The strength of your virtues can at times lead you to believe you are better than others and you may try to “fix” people to bring them up to your high standards. This can narrow your vision and close you off to opportunities. If you ignore your inner warrior you may become manipulative in the pursuit of the greater good.
How to Balance:
Declutter your childhood conditioning and release black and white thinking
Wake up early with the sunrise to find quiet time for yourself, instead of staying up late
Finding inner peace by not taking what is happening in the world personally
Do not listen to your ego, instead go within, follow your own values and embody them
Exemplify how you want the world to be, and make peace with your power
