This oracle card system is a valuable tool to gain insight into the shadow sides that exist from time to time in every person, place or new opportunity that presents itself on our life’s journey.
What is a Shadow Side?
Shadow sides are the characteristics of a person, place or situation that are either being expressed outwardly, projected inside or may be hidden from our awareness, denying us from living our best life possible. They often present themselves as behaviors, thoughts, actions or outbursts that are not the best, purest or most becoming of who we are or how the situation manifests. Over time, these aspects become roadblocks in our lives, causing our personal and professional relationships to suffer.
How can a Shadow Side Be Helpful?
By identifying shadow sides, we are no longer at their mercy, rather we are in full control over how we choose to live our lives. When we expose the shadow sides of our psyche, we no longer deny, hide or ignore those facets of ourselves. Once this happens, we are more open to receive the valuable gifts waiting to be revealed to us. By taking an honest and deeper look at these less than desirable traits, we are taking the first step in no longer allowing them to hold us hostage. Instead we become empowered with new information we may not have been aware of prior. We can choose to no longer be controlled by the challenge or obstacle, but discover ways to work with it to align with our highest good. Shadows can’t hide when exposed to the light!
