The Shadow-Self is Divine
discovered something important along my personal process, and this
discovery has come-about on the back of my own, what I perceive to be
difficulty or inability to enjoy a smooth and free-flowing existence. To
be blunt about it – I’m meeting my shadow-self in all of its ferocity.
I’ve been writing lately about how joyful and brimming my existence
has been, and indeed it has been, but I recognize that that’s perhaps a
bit narrow or one-sided of a view to give of my ascension process as it
I say this because I, like all of you, also experience anger;
frustration; uncertainty; the wish that things were just a bit easier or
more in alignment with the higher realms I can only slightly remember.
I’d be remiss if I didn’t discuss the aspects of my personal process
that would be easier to hide away from or deal with all on my own. It’s
easy not to talk about the catalytic sadness I feel at times, or the
immense disappointment when things in my Life don’t pan-out the exact
way I expected.
It’s easy to talk only about the good, and not mention that I too get
angry, curse at times, stamp my feet, etc. These are all
completely-human qualities that we’ve incarnated under, genetically and
spiritually, so that we could grow to understand them and thus,
understand ourselves, in much greater ways.
I can remember when dear Konstantinos, who posts along with me on The
Aquarius Paradigm, described a very-accurate dream he had in which I
was depicted. He said he saw me wearing a black t-shirt (as I’m prone to
doing sometimes) and he said that when he initially greeted me, I was
very happy to see him and we had a short conversation.
However, when he left and came back to me, he claimed I was mean and
insulting. I remember saying at the time that what we witnessed could’ve
been an accurate depiction of my own shadow-self, which I certainly
didn’t understand at the time as much as I’m beginning to now.
The reason I feel his dream was so accurate is because the traits of
my shadow-self were depicted quite correctly. If I’m upset or angry for
any reason, I recognize that I tend to look toward outward circumstances
or even become insulting to those who Love and care for me, in the name
of my own self-righteousness and anger.
I recognize this facet of myself, and in doing so, I can work to
understand it and not necessarily control it, but reassign it to a
position that will benefit me and those around me. Understanding my
shadow-self in greater ways, I can work not to resort to anger or
depression when it’s easy to, but take the depression I’d otherwise feel
and use it as a drive to do more good, not just for the planet, but for
myself and my family.
While it’d be easy to hide under the one-sided cloak of the joyous
channeler who never experiences anger or sadness, to do so would be to
hide away from a part of myself in need of active recognition. I
wouldn’t be a complete human (or spiritual) being if I didn’t recognize
every facet of myself, including my shadow self who’ll kick and scream
until it’s blue in the face, and see them all as integral parts of me.
I’m learning lately that when we shine Light upon and Love those
parts of ourselves we’d otherwise be ashamed of or hide ourselves away
from, we actually curtail the negative influence they’d otherwise have
upon us. When coming to a point of complete and true wholeness by
recognizing one’s Divine self, one’s human self and one’s shadow-self,
we’re able to curtail our own feeding of negativity and sadness.
I’m smack in the middle of this part of my process as I write this,
and I’m still learning and will continue to learn more about this ideal.
The basic message I wish to impart, which I do hope has come across
clearly, is that I’m not going to hide away from recognizing aspects of
myself that, at the surface, wouldn’t seem to be “of the Light”.
To judge anything, especially an active part of ourselves in need of
recognition, as “of the Light” or not, is quite a distortion in its own
right. My and your shadow-self is of the Light, because everything is of
Don’t be ashamed of yourself if you feel like you’re feeding into the
old paradigm you’re ready to see-off, because you’re a growing and
evolving human, who’s learning not to hide away from the
lower-dimensional aspects of your personal existence, but to embrace
them and bring them into the Light they’ve always been.
