Have you ever felt life isn’t fair? Are you sometimes bitter or resentful towards certain people?
Say hello to the dark side of your energetic field. Shadow energies are something we don’t explore very often. We either fear them or we’ve been conditioned to suppress them.
It’s important to observe all aspects of ourselves: both dark and light. In order to do so, we must first embrace a primary cosmic rule - our purpose is to find the light within and share our unique light with others.
We are all light beings in human form. Our core essence radiates love, peace, and harmony. We may have forgotten this truth as we trudge through life’s difficulties but it’s still a Universal truth, nonetheless.
The Beauty in Change
Although transformation can sometimes seem very scary, try to see the beauty in change.
As the Taoists say - “What to the caterpillar is the end of the world, to the Master is a butterfly”
It’s important to embrace this truth when we start to dive into our shadow side. Darker emotions can be overwhelming; adding to feelings of sadness, confusion or anxiety. You don’t have to go it alone. Call in support; even if it’s just your Guides and Angels to start. Allow the nurturing you need as you reconnect with your inner light.
How do I recognize shadow energies or emotions?
Shadow energies mask themselves as envy, jealousy, resentment, bitterness, competitiveness, rage, discontent, regret, unhappiness, irritation and so forth. Yet not all negative responses keep us stuck. Negative experiences can and often create an environment for positive change.
A good example of negativity sparking positive change is seeing someone win a trophy which you felt should have been your trophy. You then challenge yourself to become a better athlete.
Being stuck in negativity has a very different response. Your shadow side will judge or berate your performance or worse, hate the other person for winning. Which brings us to another Universal Truth…
Lack is an Illusion
Ever notice an empty patch of dirt? One day it’s barren and then suddenly full of weeds or other greenery. The Universe is continually filling empty space with new growth.
This is why it is so important to dig underneath your negative thought patterns. Infinite Spirit carries no judgement. Whatever you focus on, you will receive. Divine Source rarely interferes with your free will.
Working on these principles, it’s okay to acknowledge unfair treatment or situations that cause frustration, anger and doubt. Show up for yourself during these times. Accept the full range of emotions you’re experiencing. Honor these feelings without getting stuck. Just because someone is receiving what you may perceive is an undeserved blessing, does not mean blessings are being withheld from you.
Instead, embrace the transformation happening in your own life and flow with the space being created for you. This is how the Universe moves you forward toward the abundant life you so richly deserve.
