Something that is not seen disappears in our shadow side and becomes hardened and distorted. There it starts to lead its own uncontrolled life, you will eventually come across this part again in all its distortion in the outside world.
She’s obviously not feeling well but wants to keep her focus on something positive. “What you give attention grows,” she says firmly. She does what many people who are engaged in spirituality do: her vibration has to be kept ‘high’ against the cliffs. The shadow side is hidden away and that is precisely where the problem lies.
The effect of dark sides
It is precisely our shadow side that lowers the vibration. We, humans, are essentially light and love. So our vibration is all right, we don’t have to do anything about it. This high vibration is only aggravated by our shadow pieces; certain issues that we do not want to face. Sometimes it’s because it’s too early and the truth is too painful.
In other cases, we don’t dare to do it because we are afraid of it. Something that is not seen disappears in our shadow side and becomes hardened and distorted. There it starts to lead its own uncontrolled life, you will eventually come across this part again in all its distortion in the outside world. I like to compare it to a trash can: if you don’t clean it regularly, the discarded contents start to stink and rot.
What you give your attention grows, that’s right. Because it costs you a lot of mental energy to keep something out of your consciousness, you give it a lot of (unconscious!) attention unnoticed. It is like a crying child that has been set in motion. Although not visible, the crying can be felt and heard.
How do you dismantle a shadow piece?
This time invites us to examine all our shadows. This is how you do it:
- It is important that you do this with gentle eyes and from your heart.
- Investigate where you feel irritation or anger towards your environment: Do you feel like a victim? Are you defensive or harsh in certain conversations? These are all signs that something is not yet free in you.
- Notice how you react.
- Find out where the pain point is.
- Feel this in your body.
- Stay focused on it until you feel it transforming.
- Eventually, it lets you go.
The big cleanup for the new earth.
Shadow pieces are now also becoming more and more visible collectively. Everything will surface in the near future that has been hidden under the carpet all these years. This is a necessary major cleansing that will prepare us for the new earth. We cannot make this transition without facing our personal and collective darkness. When it is seen and felt in all openness, it automatically transforms into light. And then nothing will stop us from fully living the beautiful core of light and love that we are. Not despite the darkness, but thanks to.
