POWER of your SHADOW

Embrace the POWER of your SHADOW with hypnosis

What to do when you’re not the happiest person you know? What about when you’re depressed, fearful, jealous, greedy or angry?

The ”shadow”, a concept brought to light by Carl Jung – is the part of ourselves we don’t want to look at – qualities we deem unattractive, try to push away, overlook, sugarcoat or hide under the surface.

Hypnosis can be your gateway to discover and embrace your shadow.

How often does therapy explain how to focus on being positive. This positive focus can easily have the tendency to overlook our very real human flaws. We are encouraged to focus on the positive outcome and deny the power of the shadow and by denying the shadow we can be happier, move up and out of our current circumstance. The question is can we?

You can unlock the power of your subconscious mind with hypnosis.

Moving forward is important and should we not also honor and embrace the “beauty of our Shadow” and face the troubling aspects of who we really are. Confronting that, that may be holding us back. Taking the time to recognize the beauty of your shadow allows for so much more.

How often do we deny and shut out those pieces of ourselves that we’d rather hide away. Putting on the mask of happiness and presenting it to the world in the hope of being accepted, only to be disappointed. Should we not instead learn to embrace all of who we are, including the good and the bad parts. Allowing for all the aspects that make us who we are to be in harmony – not just the good – all of it.

“Everything that irritates us about others can lead us to an understanding of ourselves.” Carl Jung

The quickest way to see your shadow is to notice what qualities you tend to criticize or notice in others. You may just be surprised how they are a reflection of you inside. Once you allow yourself to see your shadow, you can move from judgment to understanding by practicing forgiving yourself.

“The wound is the place where the light comes in” – Rumi

Only when you can release your own inner conflicts and build a bridge between your inner and outer worlds can you get to know who you are and start to trust yourself. This is where hypnosis can help you to build the communication between your conscious and subconscious mind and gain access to you powerful self.

Caution this is GOOD:
Nurture yourself as you begin to uncover your shadow and open up. Give yourself permission to process emotions freely. You may notice that it gets harder before it gets easier. You are bringing up unprocessed, repressed material. As your shadow rises, cumulative feelings of shame, sadness, anger, and frustration may surface.

The irony is – you can turn this energy into good use. That’s right the energy you used to hold up a false self or hide out is now available to use freely.

With the help of a skillful and well trained hypnosis practitioner you can access the power of your shadow and embrace who you really are.

 

Embrace all of who you are.
