Shadow work is the Path of the Heart Warrior …”The more aware you are of your shadow, the more embodied you are as a conscious being…Ultimately shadow work is bringing attention and love to the aspects of yourself that have previously been rejected, it is the highest form of Light Work” Teal Swan

For a lot of people, the term shadow work conjures up all kinds of negative and dark associations. Because of those associations we have with the word shadow, it is easy to think that shadow work is a dark spiritual practice or that it is internal work that involves the more negative or sinister aspects of our personality. In truth, neither is the case. So what exactly is the human shadow? In this episode, Teal explains what shadow work is exactly.

Sometimes we feel as if we are on an intense roller coaster ride of perpetual conflict. We can’t seem to break free from it because we are stuck on the surface of our conflicts. We need to dive deep within ourselves internally to see the true cause of our emotional pain instead of arguing about the surface “triggers” of that pain.
When we want to feel better, we try to change the surface circumstances of our experience. We end the relationship, we move to a different city, we put ourselves on a diet, we sign up to a gym, we take a medication, we may even kill someone. But by doing only this, by looking for and taking a physical action to feel better, we can never escape the original conflict. It simply resurfaces in the new relationship, in the new city, regardless of our diet change or how much we exercise, what medication we take or who we kill. We perpetuate drama in our lives if the changes we try to make focus on changing the physical effects of a problem instead of the root cause of that problem.
In this episode, Teal explains how to find the root cause of the problem and what to do about it. She explains how to do the shadow work that will set us free from the cycle of conflict.
