What is your Shadow Self?

by Tumeria

          A popular catch phrase in spirituality and New Thought lately has been the “Shadow Self.” Many books have been written and many workshops conducted in how to integrate the shadow self into your being. Another word for the shadow is the ego, or false self. The ego is based in fear, anger, attack, hatred and judgment. It is a product of incarnating on a planet of lower vibration and density. The ego is formed within us because of our forgetfulness and feelings of disconnection from our Source. It is not who we are and at the deepest level of truth, it is not even a part of what we are. It is a temporary “part” of us, the result of being in the physical body.

          Because we forget our truth as spiritual beings, all we have to identify with while on Earth is our bodies. Many people believe that the body is who and what they are. Since bodies can be injured and even killed, we live in fear that we might be destroyed. We believe that we must do everything we can to protect our physical bodies. Self preservation is a very strong ego instinct. Our soul knows that there is no death. It is who we really are.

          In truth, we are beings of Love, Light, joy and peace. We are eternal. We choose the physical experience in order to experience. Through our physical lives we gain knowledge, wisdom and growth. We are free to create whatever we wish, and we have the opportunity to know who we are experientially.

          Integrating the shadow simply means accepting that the ego is part of the physical experience. When the shadow emerges, and it will emerge, it is important not to condemn yourself for it. Instead, look at it as an opportunity to see things from a higher perspective. Look at the shadow, acknowledge the shadow. See it for what it really is. Do not, however, identify yourself with it. It is your false self, not your true self. Once you look at your shadow and accept it, then you can choose not to come from it. When you shine your light, the shadow disappears into the illusion that it is.

          When my ego rears its head, I try to catch it as soon as possible. Depending on the situation, it could be seconds, minutes, hours, days or even weeks. The time frame doesn’t really matter. I say to myself “Wow, my ego really came forward that time!” I don’t judge it or myself. I go into meditation and ask for guidance. I ask to see the situation from a higher point of view. I look for the lesson. I look for the blessing. If possible, I try to correct the situation, if I can. What I do not do is place myself into a guilt trip. Your ego wants you to feel guilty. Its voice inside your head will be loud and harsh. It will be unkind, condemning and full of judgment. It will tell you what a bad person you are. This is the ego’s very nature. Give that voice no power. Instead, listen to the other voice within your being. It is often called “The Still Small Voice.” That is the voice of truth. That is the voice of your soul. It is the voice telling you that you are a beloved Child of God.

          Until next time, Namasté
