Let's talk about Shadow Work!

How do you do it?

One of my favorite tools is to employ a little pop-culture magic and write up issue-specific versions of my shadow as if I was doing a write up of a character for a comic or designing a monster for D&D. Backstory and all.

This gives me a collection of fleshed out inner demons I can put my finger on when working on them/with them.

I’ve also found Kelly-Ann Maddox videos extremely helpful: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLH1DuMfxSE8gmzfOspZSoHy4u8joCRDPl

What techniques do you use?

I pay close attention to the emotions I’m feeling. Then try and approach those so-called darker emotions with self compassion. Then try & identify what beliefs I have attached to those emotions, then rewrite those beliefs. That’s just a small part of my shadow work.
