🪷 Hey Faye🧚🏼‍♀️Faves 🫶🏽, for this Week's Shadow Work Prompt: Is there a memory you have that you would like to delete forever? If so, what is it? How would deleting the memory of it impact your life today? How would you feel? Is there a second memory? Before you answer this prompt & start the process of healing your traumas, I would like to give a little bit of background on what exactly Shadow Work is. If you are a beginner & just now starting to get into shadow work this is a great place to start. However, if you have already been on your journey or already know what it is you can go ahead & skip this section & answer the prompt.


🪬What exactly is shadow work?


🦋Shadow Work is getting in touch with the parts of yourself that you've repressed. Or what you may call your "Dark Side". It's called shadow work because you have to look within your unconscious or subconscious mind that may hold triggered thoughts, trauma, or emotions & behaviors that were no longer wish to deal with. Hence this is why it's called SHADOW work.


🫶🏽Tips On How to Start Doing Shadow Work:


🧿Decide if it would work best for you to hire a professional or if you'd like to do the work on your own?


When making this decision its is best to be honest with yourself, will you be able to commit to ding it on your own? Or do you think it would be better to have someone there to help guide you through the process?


🧿Practice spotting your inner shadow


To start doing shadow work, it is important to know how to spot your inner traumas/ shadow, triggers, & projections. To start this start recognizing your repeated behaviors/ habits. These can be good & bad. What are your patters and how is it affecting your life. To recognize your triggers you can easily spot these because of your traumas. Your traumas will always be a trigger for you. They will bring forth emotions that you either were repressing or ignoring but when you face them or think about certain traumas it will cause you to get upset, angry, sad, etc. Lastly, you can recognize if you are projecting your traumas by when you are simply interacting with others. For example, if you have a conversation with someone about a topic that is a trigger for you, you may stat to project how you truly feel about it on to the person you are interacting with. Even if they aren't agreeing or disagreeing with whatever has triggered you.


🧿Think about your past/ childhood


What made you feel bad, depressed, angry, or hurt you the most. These experiences are what molded you into how you are today. These are the things that you need to start working through.


🧿Keep a Shadow Work Journal


Think of this as a diary, except these will be prompts or experiences that you need to keep to help you work through your traumas & pain. When you look back at these as you continuously heal, you will not only have work through them but it will help you to see how far you come. Kind of like a memoir and a progress keeper.



Peace✌🏽, Love 💕 , & Light✨
