* I face my shadow and turn on the light. *

As Peter could tell us, the shadow is vague, elusive, and hard to pin

down. It not only contains parts of us critical to our wholeness, (and

therefore to our healing), it also contains immense energy. What we

don't want to know; what we struggle to avoid, resist, deny, and

disown carries a disproportionate amount of force.

The unconscious mind, where the shadow lives, is like the iceberg

under the surface of the ocean, as opposed to the conscious mind which

is the tip (of the iceberg) which we can see. It was what was hidden

beneath the surface that sank the unsinkable Titanic in mere minutes.

What is hidden in the shadow looms large, menacing, and sinister. When

we turn on the light we are often relieved to discover it was an old

hat or a coat hastily thrown over the bed post. Sometimes, when we

turn on the light, we are thrilled to find in the shadow something we

believed was lost, or worse, stolen.

Blessed Be!!

Much Love~
