Shadow Work: A Guide to Overcoming External Obstacles and Internal Resistance

In our daily lives, we often encounter obstacles that prevent us from achieving our goals. These obstacles can come in various forms, such as financial struggles, difficult relationships, or professional setbacks. ☹️

This is a warning that ignoring your obstacles only hides them, so you can’t resolve them. This is true for external obstacles AND internal resistance. Both are overcome with creative thinking and determination; resistance also requires deep, introspective healing work.

That’s where shadow work comes in. 🧘‍♀️🪄

Shadow work refers to any process of moving toward painful emotions, as they arise, to heal them at their roots. This process requires awareness, creative thinking, and determination. It also requires deep, introspective healing work that they can do for themselves.

To begin shadow work, the first step is awareness. Recognize the internal resistance that is preventing you from achieving your goals. It can be challenging to acknowledge these emotions, but it is essential to confront them to move forward. 👣📈

Finding a practice that works for you is also essential in shadow work. I have many courses and videos available for guidance, but only you can do the work. Each person’s journey toward healing is unique, and finding a method that resonates within you is crucial.

One effective practice in shadow work is journaling. Writing down your thoughts and emotions can help you identify patterns and gain a deeper understanding of yourself. Another effective method is meditation. By focusing on the present moment, you can release negative thoughts and emotions and gain clarity.

Shadow work is not an easy process, but it is a necessary one. By facing our internal obstacles, we can achieve personal growth and emotional healing. It takes time, patience, and a willingness to confront our pain. But with persistence and determination, we can overcome our internal resistance and move towards a more fulfilling life. ✨
