Our Shadow Self lives deep within and is the fragile, and often hurt, side of ourselves. Because the Shadow Self lives in pain, when activated it has the power to sabotage our efforts. Its role is to keep us safe. But it often keeps us small and held down in the process. Because of its fragile nature, we want to learn to care for it in a gentle and compassionate way so that it can heal and come into the light. In this meditation, you will be redirected to more love, compassion, and gentleness for your Shadow Self.
