Have You Made Friends With Your Shadow?

written by Head Health Nutter September 5, 2011

Everyone has a shadow side to them, a darkness. It’s usually destructive, to both ourselves and others. But what if it wasn’t all bad? What if we, instead of fighting it, made friends with it?

I love this idea because it’s about totally loving and accepting ourselves as human beings, both our light and dark sides. This means that while we strive to allow our spirit sides (light) outshine our shadow (dark), we transcend the concept that one is right and the other is wrong.

Based on Debbie Ford‘s book, The Shadow Effect, the movie features gurus like: Deepak Chopra, Marianne Williamson and Mark Victor Hansen. It seems absolutely fascinating and enlightening!

Check it out above if you haven’t already.


For all you readers out there, here’s the movie description:

Be uplifted by the power that is hidden beneath the surface of your conscious mind. Take this emotionally gripping, visually compelling journey into your mysterious shadow self—the hiding place for your most disliked thoughts, emotions, and impulses—and discover how by embracing your worst fears, you can step into your greatest self.

Be transformed by Debbie Ford, the #1 New York Times best-selling author and internationally acclaimed expert on the human shadow, as well as some of the most brilliant and evolutionary thinkers of the 21st century. Be inspired to uncover the wisdom in your wounds, the blessings in your misfortunes, and the gifts that are waiting to be claimed where you may least expect them . . . in the dark.

In this groundbreaking and revolutionary interactive movie experience, be guided through eight transformational exercises to uncover, own, and embrace what has been hidden in the dark—keeping you from stepping into your greatest dream. If shadows could talk, they would tell you that there is gold to be mined in every experience.

Do you beat yourself up when your dark side comes out to play? Are you tired of judging yourself? Tell me about it in a comment.

Altho’ I haven’t read Debbie Ford’s book or seen The Shadow Effect dvd yet ~ I’m inspired to take a peek at the other side! Humanity does seem to be drawn to “the dark side” of things thru curiosity or some common human denominator around daily bad news reports, highway accidents, depression, suicide etc. We all have both light & dark sides ~ but if we can be empowered by facing fears, embracing the darkness, and deeply exploring our inner, authentic selves ~ why not? There could be a lot of demons harnassed or cast out when examined close up and personal like that ~ exposed to the Light. Perhaps this is the key we need to unlock our consciousness in order to restore a healthier balance to our lives ~ physically, emotionally & spiritually? 🙁 😀

Yes, Dee, that’s my feeling, too. When we learn to love and accept every part of ourselves, we find balance and freedom!
