Shadow working and Intentions
Seems to be a day for posts - but I am a believer that if I put it down somewhere physical and plan it out somewhat I am more likely to carry through with my intentions. And so to that end I am writing of my plans (or some of them at least) for my spiritual journey this year.
This year I want to delve into shadow working, I know that I have some pretty big stuff that is holding me back from reaching my full spiritual potential and I think that it is time this was dealt with. I don't expect the journey to be an easy one, facing ones own truths and aspects of the self that we like to deny is never easy or pain free, but I feel that I've come to that point in my path where I can't really progress forward until I've delved into my own depths first. So with that intent in mind I plan to work with my shadow self each new moon/dark moon - and the first one is this coming Monday night. I don't know if I'll write of my experiences on here or if it will be to personal or two raw, that will have to be seen.
Of course working with the shadow on the new moon/dark moon isn't all I want to do. It is important that I incorporate the moon in all her phases this year in my work so I want to use the waxing moon to build myself back up again, to tend to the areas that are identified within my shadow work specifically. I want to celebrate the full moon and embrace my own inner goddess each month, and spend some time studying each of the moons and their history. The waning moon is to be used to focus on getting rid of my negative attributes that are tying me in place. Ambitious goals, but I'm going to do this because I need to do this.
