Recently I’ve started a journal where I can do Shadow Work. At a later time after I have done this for a while, I will write about my process and journey with shadow work, but for now I will share some thoughts on it and the list I created for myself. Here is one site that explains shadow work so you familiarize yourself with it if this is a new subject for you.
My two favourite people that approach the subject of shadow work among other subjects of their teachings, are Kelly-Ann Maddox and Teal Swan. In the image below I have shared the first pages from my Shadow Work Journal. As you can see, on one side I have written a quote by Kelly-Ann, and on the other side of the page I have written the 25 Heavy – Duty Shadow Work Journal Prompts from her article. On the next page, not shown in the image I have my own list of shadow work areas and related topics I want to tackle. The list will be shared below.
My shadow work list is a personal one formed of topics that suit me personally as shadow work worthy topics, and I have been adding to it for the last few weeks. I have not started heavily with my shadow work yet, even though I have purchased the amazing 29 Shadows – shadow work video bundle – from Kelly-Ann Maddox. I have to admit I was not ready at the beginning of the year when I purchased it, but I am now, and this is why I am collecting multiple resources, having a journal for it, and even sharing about it here on the blog. And my journey will start, scratch that, has actually started already with the collection of the subjects and areas of life that I want to look at while doing shadow work. The list below, is continually compiled as I go through my daily life, as I listen to other people, as I listen to myself, as I read my books, as I watch YouTube videos, and as I read articles. My list is not done by far, and I know that I will keep adding to it as shadow work worthy topics will be revealed in my life. This is a life long journey and I am happy that I have the courage to start it and share some of it with you.
