Thoughts on Healing: Shadow work

By  Rianne Collignon     November 08, 2022    Labels:,, 



Dear people,


Shadow work can be super though but it's one of the most rewarding healing work that you can do for yourself. Shadow work is all about confronting yourself with your deepest and darkest 'parts' that you won't accept, fears and desires. Our shadow belongs to us, but we put everything we won't face in there. Consciously making the choice to face up to it brings big wounds to the surface to be healed. So let's talk about shadow work today.

Why I recommend Shadow Work


Imagine that you are an ice berg, with some of your energy above the water in your conscious mind and some below in your Shadow. If you have only little energy in your Shadow, you'd rise up, but if you have a lot of energy in your Shadow, you droop down. Everything that's in your conscious mind can be used - talents, skills etc. while everything in your Shadow can't.

When Shadow work is effective, you will notice an increase in life energy - feeling more vibrant, more alive and more energetic. You will find more acceptance and mildness for yourself and for others. Sources of anger and annoyances have disappeared. You are more able to connect with your body, your talents and your power. You feel more satisfied with yourself and your life and are generally happier. 


So it's very clear why I recommend doing Shadow work and why I offer it in my practice.


Doing shadow work alone or with a healer


There are of course many reasons to do Shadow work alone: it's free, it's private and you can do as much as as little as you want. The downside is that nobody is calling you out on your own lies. So if you just skim the surface of your Shadow or won't really go to the nitty gritty of uncomfortable feelings, you won't get much out of your own Shadow Work. 


I highly recommend checking how effective your work is and then deciding if you want to continue alone or not. If you notice yourself wanting to do this work, but never creating time for it, definitely get somebody in your corner to help you through it.


Ways of doing Shadow Work


There are many ways to do Shadow Work. I will cover a few ways with solutions on how to tackle that energy, so pick what you think will give you the best results.


  • Focus on what makes you angry/what you can't accept in others. Check out how often you do this same behavior and heal and forgive yourself. Once the acceptance is complete - you will notice your anger is gone
  • Focus on what parts of yourself you hate - what won't you allow yourself to feel or do or what body parts do you hate? Spend some time releasing judgement and returning yourself to innocence. See yourself as a wonderful Soul.
  • Focus on what parts of yourself scare you - what power/talent are you unwilling to bring to light or use? Why are you scared/push that part of you away? Bring holy energy towards yourself to remind yourself that God/Spirit/The Universe has entrusted this with you for a reason.
  • Open yourself up to listen to what you have repressed. Just allow it to be within you.
  • Draw cards to see what you have within your Shadow and work with those to heal.


There are still so many more ways to do Shadow Work, but these are some of the simplest to do at home.


Shadow work blockages


Having to face and confront your fears, your demons, your hate, your littleness, these are all very difficult things to do. So it's perfectly normal to find yourself stumped. You might notice yourself rationalizing that you 'aren't like that', or 'had a good reason'. You might notice that you evade the work or lie because you  say for example that there is absolutely nothing that you hate about yourself and others.


So if you have tried some of the small exercises I wrote above and you notice this, Shadow Work is absolutely for you, but you need to work first on wanting to see yourself clearly. For Shadow Work the truth is paramount, but so is love and kindness towards yourself. So definitely start dropping judgements about yourself if you can.
